Update of the Month!
reason I am only making two entries this month is next weekend
I am headed to Florida for a two week vacation so I won't
be able to post the weekly updates. That said, I will be able
to post on my Facebook
page if you want to know what's going on :)
had Friday off for Veteran's Day (Ooh Rah to all my former
Marine comrades and to all who server in our Armed Forces!).
That was great as I needed the break. I was supposed to fly
on Friday but due to the high winds we decided against it.
Apparently there are a lot of high winds during the winter
time here so I guess I have to get used to it. Instead we
flew on Saturday and it ended up being windy again. I decided
against doing any heavy flight maneuvers so we ended up flying
back to the Airport and just doing traffic patterns. The instructor
is always positive about my flying skills but I guess I am
just harder on myself. I want to be a fun and SAFE pilot.
two days it will be the 6th year since my
mom passed away. I always remember her fondly
and that includes me seeing her in February of 2010 when I
basically died in the hospital myself. She was such a great
mother and great person who cared about others greatly (even
when they did not feel the same way about her). This world
would be a lot better if we all had mothers like my mom.
else is going ok even if I do have a headache. Not sure where
that came from but I guess it's time to take some aspirin
and watch the Bucs game today. I'm just really looking forward
to the long road trip to Florida, golf clubs in hand, to hang
out with my family, hang out with my friends and play a lot
of golf. We also have plans to go to Tampa over the weekend
and hit the Zoo, go to "One Buccaneer Place" and
then hit the coast line for a great dinner. That should be
a lot of fun.
weekend I listened to Pastor Bob's service which I love and
miss a lot. It's so great to "feel" like I am there
even if I am not, lol. Check out the link the Horizon
RSF on my web site and check the services online
if you want to hear his sermons. Really worth your time as
he speaks directly from God's word and not his own "spin"
on what God is saying.
also worked a bit on Saturday from home so the project I was
trying to test out worked so that is a good sign. I also got
my wireless router working (forgot to check off the MAC address
option!) so now I have my TV and DVD player updated. The code
level was out of date so now it appears to be working a tad
think that is about it for the week. I will check in on December
4th when I get back so I hope you all have a great Thanksgiving
and my Sebring Family and Friends, SEE YOU NEXT WEEKEND after
my short stop in Georgia!

was a very quiet week which is something that makes me happy
:) Work went very well this week as I got one of the major
problems solved (which I had an idea that was the problem
weeks ago but we couldn't test it until this week). So far,
so good so I'm happy about that. Otherwise things there are
going ok and I'm just trying to keep my nose to the grindstone
and get things done.
was the last weekend for MotoGP racing and it was very surreal
with the loss of Simoncelli. The whole team showed their support
for him and I know that he was overlooking the race and smiling
from above. The start wasn't so good today though as four
riders were taken out in the first turn and then it became
a boring race until Spies almost won it -- but nixed at the
end by Stoner. Heh, those Hondas are fast so I hope the other
teams come up with a better plan for next year.
also did some more flying this weekend. I might say -- I don't
like it when there is a lot of bumpy wind going on in a very,
very small airplane. I've been flying the Cessna 162 and though
it's fun and easy to fly, it sure is tossed around in the
wind pretty easy. I am trying to get a couple more flights
in before I head down to Florida in a couple weeks for a two
week vacation. I'm going to drive there so I have both my
truck AND my golf clubs. I do plan on playing a lot of golf
and enjoying time with my family. We're going to go to Tampa
over the weekend and go to the Zoo as well as "One Buccaneer
Place". That should be a lot of fun. I definitely miss
hanging out with my family.
was no bad weather this weekend so that was a good thing.
That said I did buy a snow scraper so the next time we have
inclement weather I can get that snow off the windshield so
I can actually drive since I cannot keep my truck in the garage
(it's too big, lol -- and it's a small truck!).
didn't go to Mclean Bible Church this weekend. I don't know,
I mean it's a good Church but I don't feel like it's home
to me. I wish I could transplant Horizon in RSF and bring
it here to Virginia - haha. I am sure Pastor Bob would not
agree with that idea, lol.
than that everything is going well. Got all my chores done,
did the flying thing, did some studying and relaxed and watched
some movies. When the weather turns here it appears most everyone
stays indoors and I don't blame them.
that's it for now. I cannot wait for my vacation in a few
weeks so Lisa and the gang, I will see you guys soon. And
you may not recognize me anymore without the big scar on my
head anymore. I look like I used to back in the day :)
a great week!
