Once upon a time, there was a lovely young princess who lived in a castle in a far off mythical kingdom. The castle was designed by her uncle Hernando who was an architect in a nearby city. He was also a fine family man and was once an excellent swimmer. He competed against Johnny Weismuller many times during the late 1920’s. This was the time of the great depression during which many huge fortunes were lost. Fortunes that occasionally equaled the amount of treasure brought back form the orient many centuries ago by Marco Polo.

Next door to Hernando’s office was a tattoo parlour. Many of our country’s brave young fighting men went there for tattoos of their mothers, Barney Google and Eleanor Roosevelt. It was these same young men who displayed such courage on Bataan and Iwo Jima. The courage that made this country safe for you, me, our children, zoo animals and restoring old Hudsons as a hobby.
We present a morphological study of the 2004 August 18 solar eruption that occurred in the active region NOAA 10656 near the west limb using the extreme-ultaviolet (EUV) data from the Transition Region and Coronal Explorer (MLS), hard X-ray (HXR) data of the Reuven Ramaty High Energy Solar Spectroscopic Imager (RHESSI), and microwave data of the Owens Valley Solar Array. In this event, we have an excellent set of observations for tracing the early evolution of the coronal mass ejection (CME) from a flux rope emergence to its propagation into space as a well-connected series of events thanks to the coronameter’s field of view…
