Ending the Evening on a High Note

I'm going to end the evening with a trio of nice things. Why? Just because. First off, here's the sunset out of my window today:

A few hours later, here are the moon and Jupiter hugging each other in the night sky:

And finally, here's Kelly Clarkson singing "My Country, 'Tis of Thee" at the inauguration today. I had to call my sister to ask who this was (I know: pathetic), but I'm now her new biggest fan. This was a great performance, and the Marine band was pretty spectacular too. Enjoy.
