Goings On

Spent most of the last week in a wonderful suite just off Union Square in San Francisco with my beautiful and charming wife, who just completed her 23rd year teaching 5th graders (in the manner it’s generally supposed to be done). San Francisco is a great place, even though it’s filled to the brim with loads of commies, which, but for their incessant and ignorant wrangling in everyone’s affairs, the city would be one hell of a lot nicer, cleaner, and not the refuge of every damned street bum west of the Mississippi.

Commies are so dumb that they think that any goodness that abounds anywhere is the result of their "programs" rather than the result of capitalism keeping us from going entirely off the cliff, as did the USSR. They overlook entirely all the messes.

Anyway, I’m back. Both in the office and in the cockpit. I’m pretty sure I’ll solo early next week, which’ll be right around the 15 hour mark.

Now I’m off to downtown San Jose to hook up with Kyle Bennett who’s in town for a convention.

I celebrate the audacity and hubris to live by your own exclusive authority and take your own chances. Read More

    Drop in on Reid Hillview and the Hiller Museum at San Carlos.
    And good luck on solo.

    There used to be pastures North and a golf course South of Amelia. As soon as the Shopping center opened, the cries to close the airport began. Good luck and lose your shirttail soon.
