Max Q, the Astronaut Band


Today's post was written at the Cafe Mediterranean, across Nasa Road One from Johnson Space Center. Frequently the Cafe hosts concerts by Max Q, the band made entirely of active duty astronauts! Left-right in front are Canadian Chris Hadfield on guitar, Educator Dottie Metcalf-Lunenbuyrger doing vocals, Dan Burbank on guitar. Not to worry, they've not quit their day jobs.

Max Q is the point of maximum aerodynamic pressure on an ascending spacecraft. The band was started in the 1980's and named by Robert "Hoot" Gibson. In the dark days following Challenger, the band provided needed pickup. Last week Max Q played at the annyal Ballunar fesstival in JSC. This band will play on as long as there are astronauts.

I have shared this before, but my first ever handbag was a Coach bag. From that day forward I was hooked on bags and it clearly changed my life going forward, as I get to talk about the accessories I love every day. Longchamp Bags While many designers have come in and out of my collection, Coach will always have a special place in my heart. Over the past few years, Coach has churned out higher Coach Outlet Store quality and priced items season after season. The true Coachies (a name given to Coach bag lovers by our loyal Coach PurseForum members) have grown with the brand and found the Coach Purses collections that they love most.For $800, brands like Alexander Wang and Louis Vuitton can be purchased, but right now I am crushing on the Coach Pinnacle Leather Allie. The leather is michael kors outlet online sure to be richly textured and the smooth and pebbled combination will give a nice tonal effect. The reason this shoulder bag stands out so much is because of its custom Coach Outlet buckles, exotic framing detail, and the leather belting. The bag is quite spacious, 18″ x 7″ x 15″ and has a nice shoulder drop of 11.5″. I see this bag working Michael Kors well for the young professional to the empty-nest mother.I really like how elegant this bag looks, perfect for those who love the brand but are not looking for a monogrammed bag. michael kors outlet online But my question comes in about the price. I am not one for sticker-shock but I do realize that $800 is high when many people think about Coach. Is this something Longchamp Sale that you appreciate as they continue to expand or Longchamp Bag does it turn you off from the brand? Buy through Bloomingdale’s for $798.
Coach is always releasing new lines of bags. With summer just around the corner, Coach has released a line that is going to remind you of oranges, sunny days, and a summer tan. The Coach Ombre Signature Handbags have michael kors outlet
