In the middle of nowhere, at the edge of tomorrow

The name Silicon Valley is, of course, known world-wide, but the valley's original name was Santa Clara Valley.

In the Mojave desert of California is Antelope Valley. It's the location of Edwards Air Force Base, and one of the coolest municipal airports in the country, Mojave Airport.

Antelope Valley also calls itself "Aerospace Valley", and they have applied to the FAA to be designated as a "spaceport".

So while you get wacked by the hurricane, here's a fun joke to tell when the tv goes out because of no electricity:

The pilot came over the loud speaker and told the passengers of the 747 that the plane was going to crash. With this disastrous news one lady passenger became hysterical, she jumped up suddenly and screamed, "If we're all going to die, I want to die feeling like a woman. Is there anybody on this plane man enough to make me feel like a woman?" She then ripped all of her clothes off, and stood naked, trembling.

A handsome and muscular male passenger in the back of the plane then jumped up, rips off his shirt and says to her, "Here, iron this."
