Don't forget the peach cobbler. It's to die for.



Also, take cash. They down't accept credit cards.

The 2014 GS Trophy will be held in Canada...So much for cool and exotic locations! If I ever (I won't) get to go, I want African giraffes, lions, or 14,000 foot Andres peaks in SA!

Why does that make me think of a bad acid trip? Holy flying dragonflies batman.

Okay, it's official. There is just too much fascinating stuff on the internet for me to ever get any more work done. If I were my employer, I'd fire myself for lack of productivity.

fancy! So the blade pitch has got to be linked to some kind of attitude sensor. Otherwise, that dude is amazingly fast and precise with the controls.

My sister works as a contractor for NASA, she is part of mission control at Wallops Is., VA. They worked real hard to get this one up, a ship strayed into the down range space, then there was a glitch 9 minutes before lift off which they had to work through.
