NASA


After arriving home from work last night and sticking the dinner in the oven to cook-I decided to spend a few minutes going through my emails,hubby was already languishing in the bath ! You can imagine my delight when I saw the words Nasa in my hotmail list !! Ned,Ned I screeched Nasa have replied to my letter-my fingers wouldn`t work quickly enough on the key pad I was that excited !

Now let me explain -I`ve run a competition on the blog asking people to send in their pictures wearing their supporters bands-we`ve called it traveling bands, sister-in -law Jayne suggested trying to get a band into space ! I must admit I was sceptical -o.k. I will give it a go-So I wrote the letter-I did ask that the band wasnt just discarded ,that if my request denied could I have a photo of an astronaut/ office worker or even a cleaner anybody wearing the band so I would at least know the band had got there[and was not wasted]
Hubby galloped down the hall way butt naked and soaking wet ! He stood behind me-NASA regret they cannot fly a "risk band " huh? that supports mnd into space [oh bugger !] only very few exceptions,such as for natural museums or historical purposes.NASA regrets that your request cannot be accommodated- sigh! they went to the trouble of writing back they could have sent a bloomin photo!- I went to check on the dinner-leaving hubby butt naked wearing only his specs thumping out a reply ! I smiled to myself as I followed the wet foot prints down the hall !! Sometimes its really nice having someone there just when you need them x

Jan, that was a very well written post, you had me glued! Sorry they won't sent it out in space, but, gee, they could have sent a picture!

Yes, comforting when you have somebody there when you need them.

Well I have a mental image of Hubby now that I won't be shaking off any time soon! Wet, naked, and near sighted. If only NASA knew who was emailing them!
Great try, Janet. It could have worked...definitely worth going after. Great blog post!

You have John's sense of humor! Funny story. You still are able to get a PHOTO in space before the last Space Shuttle, but need to do it ASAP.
The website is:

There are only 2 flights left and they are in Nov., so just go to the sight and send a photo to go in space!! Best of luck, Cassie
