Today on Citypages.com's 'In The Stream' with TD Mischke:
- For the first time, scientists have been able to photograph lightning inside a plume of ash spewing from an actively erupting volcano.

Stay healthy, live long, and see more cool things in the future.

They must have a bitch of a time getting a word in edgewise. Are we even listening? Well, today on the show, I'm listening! In fact, I'm taking calls from bras. Oh bla dee, Oh bla da, give a call BRA! La la la la give a call!
- What would you rather experience? This or this?
