NASA is returning to the moon for the first time in 50 years with Artemis

(Artemis is NASA’s renewed mission to the moon and maybe even further. Launch Date is August 29 2022)

NASA’s Artemis 1 Launch Director is female and will be assisted by 30 other female engineers working in the control room with her.

We’ve come a long way since the first moon landing back in 1969 which was completely dominated by men.

(Why is it called the Palmetto State? …South Carolina is called “The Palmetto State” because of its large population of Sabal Palmetto trees, however, the state’s tree is the cabbage palmetto and the state’s flower is the yellow jasmine. The palmetto tree is seen on our state flag.)

英語のオヤジギャグ …

TImage result for wordsmithhis is quite clever and fun if you enjoy “wordsmithing” (言葉の遊び). 
I wonder who thinks of all this stuff.
Smith…はよくある英語の名前。IronSmith 又はBlackSmith(鍛冶屋さん), GoldSmith(金細工氏), SilverSmith (銀細工氏), などから来てる。
だから…WordSmith は言葉を上手に操る人です(ジョーク!)。
“Searching for a Job”
1.  My first job was working in an Orange Juice factory, but I got canned .  Couldn’t concentrate.
2.  Then I worked in the woods as a Lumberjack, but just couldn’t hack it, so they gave me the axe .
3.  After that, I tried being a Tailor, but wasn’t suited for it, mainly because it was a sew-sew job.
4.  Next, I tried working in a Muffler Factory, but that was too exhausting.
5.  Then, tried being a Chef – figured it would add a little spice to my life, but just didn’t have the thyme.
6.  Next, I attempted being a Deli Worker, but any way I sliced it…. I couldn’t cut the mustard.
7.  My best job was as a Musician, but eventually found  I wasn’t noteworthy.
8.  I studied a long time to become a Doctor,  but didn’t have any patience

11.  Managed to get a good job working for a Pool Maintenance Company, but the work was just too draining.
12. So then I got a job in a Workout Center, but they said I wasn’t fit for the job.
13.  After many years of trying to find steady work , I finally got a job as a Historian – until I realized there was no future in it.
