10 Years on February 7

Thursday, February 3rd, 2011

Yes, it really has been ten years. The photo above is from our honeymoon trip to Sonoma and Napa Valleys in March 2001. Wow, it sure does not seem like that long. More postings on this later.

Going to Hungary

Wednesday, January 5th, 2011

Gabi and Veronica are going to Hungary next week. They’ll be there for six days, leaving the other three kids in my care here in California.

January tickets are relatively cheap, and we don’t have much longer for Veronica to fly in Gabi’s lap. They’ll have a great time.

Not so sure about the rest of us, of course …

Last Seaworld Visit of 2010

Veronica and Walrus, Beauty and the Beast

Aunt Helen gave us Seaworld tickets in June. In the six months since then, we’ve been there at least four times that we remember. The ability to return again and again makes for a low-pressure situation where we can do just a few hours in the sun and waves, see a couple of shows and ride a few rides. Great fun!

AR Drone in Temecula

Tuesday, December 28th, 2010

Nic’s big present to the family was this UFO-like flying machine (which I had seen and flown before, see here and here). It’s a complicated, expensive and very fragile machine – but boy is it cool when it works!

Below is the feed from the camera onboard during a flight over the top of our house.

More time spent repairing than flying

UPDATE: The drone is currently dead. Parrot customer service has quickly responded with an offer to repair. Will update as news comes in.
