So I went through my little record collection – stuff from my parents and a few things of my own, including a box of 45s I got at a garage sale as a kid. Willow helped: The box of 45s really is gold though – check out some of the awesomeness. BTW, an identical 45 of Help! is in the … Continue Reading →

Sunflower: Doug and I managed one more dinner with Amber before she left for Rhode Island. We went to the all the meat you can eat Korean BBQ place in Rockville. It was really fun. (Also, everytime I hear “Rockville,” I have a compulsion to quote the REM song… “Don’t go back to Rockville!” Then we went kayaking with Doug, … Continue Reading →

We’ve had a lot of exciting things going on with the Jame Webb Space Telescope here at NASA Goddard. A recent one was … Continue Reading →

Here’s what I’ve been up to for the first part of July. I helped out with a last minute G+ hangout for Google’s Maker Camp at work. Here’s our JWST speaker. The giant centrifuge at work that mostly gets used as storage: Moth: Kevin’s cat Raoul – amusing that he’s pillowing his head on the carpet, but has his body … Continue Reading →

We got back from Alex & Holly’s wedding in time to go to the fireworks in Laurel with friends. We missed the DC fireworks, but the Laurel ones are always nice – and they went on for like 40 minutes! Great show!

So Alex and Holly got married in NY on the 4th of July – our whole crew from work went up for the event and it was a really fun time.

We went to a friend’s wedding (Alex, my amusing, goofy work friend, whom you have pictures of here) up in NY. Actually the wedding ended up being not that far from where I grew up – probably 20 minutes away! We had some time to kill before the wedding, and our other friends had already gone to Storm King (a … Continue Reading →

The beach was about as perfect as it has ever been this year. I love New Smyrna Beach – it is definitely is one of my happy places. It wasn’t great weather the day we got there, but was still beautiful. And then the rest of the week was gorgeous. The ocean was really blue, which the Atlantic generally isn’t, … Continue Reading →

Since we still had annual passes, so we spent an evening at Disney on the front end of our trip to the beach. I didn’t catch this breathing fire, but it was really cool! We did get on the 7 Dwarfs Mine Car ride, which was fun, but a sort of kiddy coaster. This is the dwarf’s house: We had … Continue Reading →
