Happy New Year 2015!

Having been awakened at 5am by you know what (even after the treatment on Tuesday!), I’ll admit that I’m not exactly in a “festive” mood. But I am up, with time on my hands, and nothing better to do. So I thought I’d throw a little something together to celebrate the start of the New Year. Besides, I’m still a sentimental fool at heart, who just can’t seem to stop believing in a better tomorrow.

Hold Your Head Up!

You know, I’ve lived inside this crazy head of mine for almost 58 years, and yet I’m still amazed at how easily distracted I can be. Yesterday, while looking forward to what I might blog about today, I’d decided it was high time I got around to doing that full spate of aviation related posts I’ve been collecting all those links and images for for such a long time.

Ridin’ The Storm Out

As the full story of Hurricane-turned-Superstorm Sandy continues to unravel, with so many people still waiting to see just how badly their lives have been changed by its wrath, I just wanted to share a little of what I’ve been collecting as the story developed. From the October 26, 2012 Frankenstorm: What we know about…

Your Sunday Awesome!

I saw this first bit of awesome when my nephew posted it on Facebook, and then later in the Within Two Worlds post on the Metousiosis blog. I want to thank them both, because it’s been far too long since Brad Goldpaint has graced this blog with his brilliance… “Within Two Worlds depicts an alternate…

The Audacity To Dream!

I found the first of these two wonderful videos in Jason Major’s The Audacity to Dream post at Universe Today. Here’s what he had to say about it: Making its debut at the TEDxISU (International Space University) event on July 6, the video above is an inspirational call-to-arms for anyone who’s ever looked to the…
