My somewhat reluctant return to Cedar Rapids today. It's been a nice week vacation, but time to head back to Iowa for work. I brought James and Erik with me so they could see the area. On our drive down we stopped at a little local deli and picked up stuff to make sandwiches on the drive. And I said "sudo make me a sammich" and it worked!
This is Aislinn, my goddaughter, whom I'm teaching to roller-skate. This is our 4th skating session, and she has learned a great deal. She is now able to skate without any assistance from me, and with my help she's faster then just about anyone else on the floor.
Pictured is the airplane I flew today. Yep--I was in the pilot's seat. After years of simulator addiction (my gateway drug) I decided to try actually being behind a flight yoke. Since it was my first time, I didn't get to do much. I made a few turns, learned to steer on the ground using my feet, did a few radio calls, and learned the basics of the pre-flight check list. Just like any escalating addiction, it costs a lot more. But I think having my pilot's certificate would be cool.
