No Air Time

No Air Time

Hey Team, I’m a big fan of being around people in general…but I especially like being around large groups of people who have a lot in common with each other and nothing in common with me. Those are always guaranteed learning experiences. And this weekend was no exception. It’s amazing how much you can learn…

Glidin’ Seek

Hey Team, I’m was just in Woodstock, Virginia for the first half of a two day hang gliding festival. So far no luck finding someone that can take me up.

Flying Fire and Fireflies

Hey Team, It’s been a HUGE week. #30, 33, and 38 all down the metaphorical drain! I’ve got a story about #33 all lined up for tomorrow. But today, for your viewing enjoyment, is a little video we’ll call “Mission: Firefly!” Enjoy. And here’s the link if the video gives you wacky PCs any trouble.…

God Bless Hamerica

Hey Team, What a fantastic week! I’ve been up to my glaucoma-ridden eyeballs in mid-western experiences. Not the least of which has led to yet another objective being crossed off the list. I’ve spent the last couple days experiencing the definition of “obscure small town festival.” Welcome to the wonderful world of “Hog Days” care…
