Thought for the day

I’ll reprise something I sent my HBS class secretary a year ago this month. “A Trump administration will not be without anxious times for the public.  Remember the Air traffic Controller’s Strike, the walkout from the Reykjavik Summit and “Tear down this wall” by Reagan?  Those were anxious times during the administration of arguably the greatest presidency of the 20th century.” So Much for politics.”

I am elated that I finally mastered the skill of being able to take photos and videos from my Phone or iPad and publish them immediately via WordPress on followed by posting on Facebook.  Traffic is building ‘hughly’.  It is amazing that this little device that we carry around in a pocket gives individuals the power previously available only to major media.  From here on its a question of audience size.  Of course the Kardashians learned that long ago.

Our green thumb?

In our front yard there is a bed of vica surrounded by an extruded concrete retainer. It has been four years since Dolly and I planted 86 purchased cuttings. This fall the bed finally looks mature, with all bare spots covered. The top of the bed is level and the sides nicely trimmed.

Front Yard Planting

On the side of the villa there is a bare bed that has never been planted. Its covered with pin-oak leaves and mulch.

Empty bed on side of villa

In late November we potted a tray of 72 cuttings from the front bed.  Stem ends were dipped in root hormone before planting.  After four weeks they showed new growth.  So, we potted another tray.  Before heading north for the summer we’ll plant these in the side yard bed.[KGVID][/KGVID]

Happy Holidays 2016

A clip from the EAA Chapter 791 Christmas Party. Someone was taking pictures, so I handed them my cellphone. Who needs mistletoe?


Dolly and I are members of three great Experimental Aviation Chapters: #77 in Michigan and #1298 & #791 in Florida. We have wonderful friends in each.

Learning Experience

This week I’ve started updating our WordPress Website.  After being away since May it takes time to get back up to speed.  But, we are making progress.

A primary change today was to set up this Blog separate from the RV-7 Builders Log.
