Here's a couple of photos of the lovely people that attended and we expect great things from them in the future.

Usually, I like to keep politics out the blog considering its such a shady shady business but I can't but feel some semblance of pride for what Jay Z has been able to accomplish with bringing the NETS to Brooklyn. Bravo Mr. Carter.

Any one that really knows me knows I am a Cat person Over Dog lover.. Long Story.... But I remember this breed of Cat when I was in college and My roomate Omar Bought one! a Savannha Cat is a Cross Breed between a Serval and a Siamese (domestic cat). Based on the percentages you get a crazy unique a Beautiful Animal. These Animals can be domesticated but are illegal in many states. Check this they range in prince from a Cool $1000-$7000. YEP, Expensive Pet.
See some of their Uniqueness:
Owners of Savannahs say that they are very impressed with the intelligence of this breed of cat. An often noted trait of the Savannah is its jumping ability. Savannahs are known to jump up on top of doors, refrigerators and high cabinets. Some Savannahs can leap about 8 feet (2.5 m) high from a standing position. Savannahs are very inquisitive, and have been known to get into all sorts of things. They often learn how to open doors and cupboards, and anyone buying a Savannah will likely need to take special precautions to prevent the cat from getting into things.
Lately I've been feeling really awed at the structure of our world as well others in the Universe. All the important questions still exist. Where did we come from? How did the Universe begin? Is there life on other planets? None of these questions probably have any chance of being answered any time soon but the Hubble Telescope did capture these questions in photographs during its run as the preeminent satellite imaging device in the sky. So, I'm sharing these with you cause, you know, maybe you've had the Universe on the brain yourself. Enjoy :)
