HWPOA Returns to the Web! — Well, Sort of......

    Once again, our Hallmark Woods Property Owners Association has an official website.

   It's still a work in progress, but we can look forward to local news and direct communications with the new board of directors (named on the site!).

   Please visit. They keep track of these things, and the more neighbors use the site, the more the new guys will be encouraged to keep in touch with the community.

UPDATE:  It started out all right. Nice format, good photos, helpful posts. But the website seems to have been almost abandoned. Did no one visit? Is the new board busy with other things? I'm still very hopeful, but sorry to see the lack of progress. Maybe the cooler weather will bring a burst of activity. I hope.

Dancing in the Sky


   Tonite, tomorrow night, and on.... the Moon will be accompanied by Jupiter, the biggest planet in our solar system. And not far away will be the mighty hunter, Orion and his nemesis, Taurus the bull. 

   The whole story is available from Sky and Telescope magazine, from  which I stole the above graphic. 

    But the weather forecast is for at least partly cloudy, at least where I am near Annapolis, Maryland. No problem! Click into the Slooh Space Camera website, whereat you will find, at appropriate moments, a telescope view of the whole thing as the Moon "eats" Jupiter the night of January 21. 

    Enjoy!  But if you miss it (busy dancing at the inaugural ball.... etc.), the principal dancers will be back on March 17th.
