Edit: I meant this for the Cigar Lounge because of politics, but I kinja’d. Still, it Is pretty funny.
My wife and I collect animation production cels. We hadn’t bought anything in a long time, so the other night I got bored and went to EBay. As you know, this never ends with more cash in your pocket than you started with. I found a number of cels from Dilbert for very cheap. The show was ok, but as an engineer I do…
We do it up right. Full day of activities. Hit the museum, inflight training and TechOps. The dude seemed to enjoy it. Walked 14000 steps.
I have a first world problem. I have training in Toulouse, France the week before Le Mans. Now Toulouse is near the Spanish boarder and Le Mans is 90 minutes out of Paris by train. The Paris Airshow starts the Monday after Le Mans. Nominally, I would take the train from Toulouse direct to Le Mans, watch the race and…
I did the brakes on the Evo yesterday and one of the replacement rotors had this odd machined groove in it. It cuts into the pillars that separate the friction surfaces. Anyone seen similar?
Roy Schieder doesn’t need a mythical attack chopper to be cool.
Wife said she thought the Evo’s brakes needed to be changed. Bought parts, jacked it up and have 50% left all around. I guess it is a good opportunity to check fluid levels and rotate the tires.
The kids wanted to watch Jurasic Park 2. Not the best movie, but there are worse.
Had someone send me an email that launched me into red mist mode at work today. Wrote up something as a retaliatory strike. Paused and deleted that crap and told them to come talk to me. A much better outcome resulted. Still, the idea that I need to run my group in a jacked up way because someone else’s group is…
The cat has been stuck in the tree for a number of days. Today, like Robin Hood of yore, I used one of the kids toy bows to shoot a wood dowel arrow 30 feet over a branch with some light rope around it. We then lifted a clothes basket with food in it up to the branch. The damn cat then proceeded to climb higher up the…
Twin Piper Cub was a thing. A weird thing, but a thing.
NASA’s Deep Space Network keeps track of a large number of probes out there. Spacecraft are at the moon, Mars, Saturn and in deep space. I love the fact that they check in on Voyager 1 and 2 from time to time. Voyager 2 is 31 light hours from earth. Voyager 1 is in interstellar space and 38 light hours out.
over 67,000 people were watching Alonso’s test this AM. That is pretty impressive.
I’m at a major commercial aviation avionics conference and I have seen three people talking on flip phones. It makes some thing clearer to me.
By the way June is looking at Ward, I think he is about to have a good night. They might even push the beds together. If you don’t recognize the image then get off my lawn.
Alonso and McLaren boss Zak Brown are in Atlanta on their way to Barber. I’m kind of excited for this.
