He sat there at the end of the old country lane looking at the farm the way it was fifty years ago. He wondered if he had the right to change time. All he had to was to talk to the teenage version of himself inside, to te;; him to trust the girl who now sits behind in English class. If he did not trust her his life would be filled with loneliness and regret. He wondered if he had the right to change her kife. She had a family children and grand children now, did he have the right to change all their lives to make his right. He never thought he had a chance until he found that magical blue box in the woods. He sat there wondering.

As I finish one trip around the sun and start another, I realize that I need change a couple of things. First I most give on there being any chance of my dream career. I do not think there was a lack of intelligence but because for some reason I lose concentration when I am around groups of people and some personalities make this worse, because they misinterpret the situation and for think what I need is more attention and things go further downhill to a point where a suffered a depression as well. I should gotten a of a job right of school or trained for a job around here for a year so I could save for a place of my own, I think that might of made a difference.

The first connection is how the plants get their energy. Deep in the interior of the star hydrogen fuses together to create helium also a small amount of mass is converted into energy. The amount of mass lost to energy is only 0.7% but the sun burns 600 billion kg of hydrogen a second. The energy released is in the form of light which can behave as a particle or a wave. The light bounces of particle in the interior for around a million years then after reaching the surface of the sun it only takes a 8 minutes to travel from the sun to the Earth. Then the plants absorb the light and with carbon dioxide from the atmosphere and water from the ground it creates starches and sugars that it needs, then some greedy animal comes along and eats all its hard work.
The second way astronomy is connected to gardening is that ancient farmers used the stars as a form of calendar. If you observe the stars every night you notice that stars raise latter and latter every night and then earlier every night. You can use this knowledge to predict when it is getting closet to the time of planting, so you start to get your ground ready for planting.
Another way astronomy and gardening are connected goes back to about 13.8 billion years ago. For the first few hundred generations of the plant the farmer keeps the seed of the best producers to get better and better crops. Before that in the wild the plants grow on their own and which ever is more fit to survive than the others get to survive to continue on their line. 4 billion years before that the atoms that made up the plant were swirling in a giant dust cloud that would be someday be the planets and the sun. Around 9 billion years before that there was a sudden flash of light that cooled down to create all the hydrogen that fuse together in the future generations of stars that would become the plant and the gardener.
Now I wish I was a better at weeding.

When I was a kid I remember late at night before the local PBS station went off the air there was a quick little astronomy show called Star Hustler. It was a quick look at what was up during the up coming week in the sky. Now he is gone but as he also ended the program. “Keep looking up”.

No I have not found a new job yet but I have busy. Right now spending time in the woods behind my home gathering tips. Tips are basically the tips of fir branches used in wreath making. This way a get some exercise maybe earn a little money and scout out our land that nobody has been on for about a decade. Besides that trying to learn web programming, split and piled five cords of wood and looking for a job.
