Lately I've been doing my part in the International Year of Astronomy by giving presentations on the contributions to modern astronomy by lots of rural astronomers. Seems right to point it out when you live up here in the Redwood country.
It's a challenge to go to some remote places or find auditoriums ( and insurance) for these talks but, when I give them, people seem to be really excited about them.
Anybody out there who thinks this is a good thing (as I do), I'd appreciate any help you can give by contributing to the Rural Astronomy Talk Fund I've set up on Paypal.
Thanks and, as my cousin Spike says, "Do the Right Thing!"
