“It’s not foolproof”

July 31, 2015

“When — God forbid — we do pick the carcass of a drone out of one of the engines of a commercial airliner, we can find the serial number and trace it back to the original owner,” Canoll said. “I know it’s not foolproof.”

Visited the Missouri Botanical Garden last night for a concert and…

July 30, 2015

I saw the below Lantern Festival scenes. Obviously they look much nicer lit up in the dark but you can get an idea of what they might look like when illuminated. The bottom image was taken as I left the concert.

Tribute to the Wright Brothers on the Moon

July 29, 2015

I recently finished reading the excellent book The Wright Brothers by David McCollugh and found this interesting final quote unknown by me and perhaps you also: “On July 20, 1969 when Neil Armstrong, another American born and raised in southwestern Ohio, stepped onto the moon, he carried with him, in tribute to the Wright brothers, a small swatch of the muslin from a wing of their 1903 Flyer”

Funny Story

July 23, 2015

Tavis Smiley during an interview with the famous songwriter JD Souther asked how Linda Ronstadt became his muse. He said he was sitting in the Troubadour Lounge one evening and the most beautiful woman (Linda) in the world walked by. He grabbed her by the hand and sat her down. Looked her in the eye and said “You need to cook me dinner” She looked him in the eye and said OK. He went home called her on the phone and asked if this evening would be OK. Again, she said yes. He got to her house and found the “cooked dinner” was a peanut a butter and jelly sandwich – nice going Linda.

The “Tesla Grin”

July 22, 2015

I had my car emission tested per regulations to obtain new plates. The service manager told me he recently drove a Tesla from its parking place into the bay and as he did he thought of something the Tesla owner told him. There is a new cultural phenomenon called the “Tesla Grin” and it occurs the first time the owner or first time passenger experiences its acceleration and rockets to 60 in a little over 3 seconds (a bit faster than my Model A)
