Questions to ask a Potential Home Day-Care Provider

When parents search for a caregiver, they can face a confusing landscape in Virginia.

There are large centers, licensed and governed by rules covering everything from square footage per child to credentials for employees. There are also licensed family homes, with smaller numbers of children. And then there are unregulated homes, which can operate legally as long as the caregivers watch no more than five children not related to them. The unregulated face no inspections, background checks or regulations.

Total Lunar Eclipse of the Moon

In the early morning hours before sunrise on Wednesday October 8th there was an eclipse of the moon. This is when a full moon passes into the shadow of the earth. The moon set while in eclipse but we could see phases of it as the moon set in the west while it was dawn in the east.

The shadow of the earth first touched the moon at 5:15 AM and gradually covered the moon over the next 70 minutes and then stayed total as the moon descended in the west. The sun rose at 7:10 AM, the moon set in total eclipse.  If anyone has photos that they would like me to post on the web, please contact Kelly Beavers via email and I will post your photos on the web.
