Anniversaries, Space & a Baby Rat

Here's the photo of the baby brown rat that Charles mentioned in the comments of my last post, for those that are interested. Click for a larger view.
In other news--brace yourself--today's the 15th anniversary of comet Shoemaker-Levy crashing into Jupiter. I swear it doesn't seem like it was that long ago. It's also the 40th anniversary of the launch of Apollo 11, which brought Buzz Aldrin & Neil Armstrong to the moon.
In other anniversary news, tomorrow (Fri., Jul. 17th) is the 6th anniversary of my moving to the New Orleans area.

I think it's a Cute Overload rule that anything with beady eyes is cute. This little guy has definitely cornered the market on cute.

Rats freak me out, but that one is very cute for some reason!
