A short film from Boeing

May schedule posted over there on the left. I should be there this Sunday, the ASR upgrade went perfectly (although the week of oncall nearly killed me from lack of sleep).

Here's a nice little time-lapse video of how Boeing makes those flying-death-tubes they sell to Southwest Airlines that we all love clambering into in order to fly about these United States...

Hello I must be going...

Be aware that I can't lead the ride this Sunday the 25th, I have a work thing (upgrading our JDA E3 Automated Store Replenishment software, if you must know).

And I believe that Gary's busy with the student cyclists, going to the Great Bike Chase downtown.

So, y'all have to figure it out yourselves. Or perhaps do the Ride For The Children event that starts at Horizon High School at 56th St. and Greenway.

Or hell, just sleep in...

Back to the salt mine

Vacation officially ends today, it's time to get back to work after a week off sunning in Cabo. Spent yesterday afternoon at Scottsdale Airport taking a look at the Collings Foundation B17G and B24J up close.

The pilot of the B24 had a family emergency, so it didn't leave the ramp. But the B17 took off about 5:40 PM for a joy ride around the valley.

Today they both head off to Deer Valley airport, so if head on over and take a look. A thirty minute ride will cost you about $400 I believe.

Destinations posted for April

I won't be leading this Sunday to The Good Egg, as I'll be somewhere in the Pacific Ocean on the Carnival Elation, probably poolside, enjoying many drinks with little umbrellas in them. And any time anyone says that four-letter word "work", I'll be ordering up another.

Here's a great example of why professional sports players shouldn't go into broadcasting...

Stand By Me

It's almost Easter, the best chocolate holiday there is, in my humble opinion. If you've wandered into this corner of the Intertubes to find out where we're going this Sunday, well you're going to be disappointed. I've heard nothing.

If we don't have a destination, I'll find some kind of route to wander around town, and find somewhere that might take at least our group. Might be an "Every Group For Themselves" kind of deal.

For your entertainment, I've rounded up some Muppets to entertain you. Enjoy...
