Bullies and Trolls

By   /  January 30, 2018  /  Blog  /  No Comments

I lost my temper recently, and that hasn’t happened for a very long time.  It actually took me by surprise as I’ve grown quite mellow over the years.  In fact, the last time I can remember being that angry was in high school.  Bullies, both then and now, set me off with a short fuse.  […]

To Build a Drone

By   /  January 23, 2018  /  Blog  /  No Comments

 I’m off to Kwad Camp in a few days, so the deadline to get a quad or two built before I leave is fast approaching.  Also, I’m still trying to setup my office.  So many boxes, so little time.  Though, I have managed to create a bit more workspace to actually do, you know, work.

Diet Day 14 of 90

By   /  January 21, 2018  /  Blog  /  No Comments

It’s unofficial weekly weigh in time (not the official scales we’re using for the bet).  Starting weight was 262.4 (on the official scale) and last week I dropped to 251.5.  This week the scale is showing 245 lbs even (my old scale only weighs in half pound increments).  Total weight lost thus far, 17.4 lbs.

43 Hours In Bed

What’s the difference between a cold and the flu?  Google coughing, sore throat, fever, headache, hot and cold chills, feeling weak all over, no energy.  Somewhere at the top of the list should be the following: https://goo.gl/cDoP5A

Diet Day 7 of 90

By   /  January 15, 2018  /  Blog  /  No Comments

The (unofficial) weight on Diet Day 7 is 251.5 lbs.  Again, this was on my personal scale, not the official scale we are using.  The next weigh in on that scale is 3 weeks away.  With that said, my total weight lost the first week is 10.9 lbs.

Lost and Found, Part 2

By   /  January 12, 2018  /  Blog  /  No Comments

I’ve lost a few drones since starting this hobby a year ago.  In every case the reason for the lost drone was pilot error.  The most recent example occured a few weeks ago, right before Christmas.  There is a YouTube post about it here, “Lost and Found“. Honestly, I never expected to see the drone […]

My Drone Workspace

By   /  January 11, 2018  /  Blog  /  No Comments

I’m not a neat freak, but the site of my workspace just makes me tired.  To my credit though, the desk is usually much cleaner than this.

Diet Day 3 of 90

By   /  January 10, 2018  /  Blog  /  2 Comments

It may be a few days or longer before my prepackaged food arrives.  In the meantime I stopped by the store and picked up a few things.  Sadly, these look better than some of the food that’s arriving.

Diet Day 1 of 90

By   /  January 8, 2018  /  Blog  /  2 Comments

Just to recap, I have a bet with a co-worker that I can loose a higher percentage of body weight in 90 days than she can.  There’s money on the line, and I don’t like to gamble, so I’m going to update this section of the blog frequently in the hopes it will help keep […]

Kwadcamp

By   /  January 6, 2018  /  Blog  /  No Comments

Kwadcamp is a Rotor Riot group that helps new drone (racing & freestyle) pilots build, tune, and fly like a master.  Their Facebook group is a great place to get expert advice on any issues you may be having with your quad/drone/kwad.  They also offer classes in-person, but you will probably need to travel.  The […]
