A Disney evening

This was not our best visit to Disney. We were in Florida for the annual family vacation and thought we’d fly in, head to Disney for the afternoon/evening before heading out to the beach. This was supposed to be a bit of a treat since we’d had a rough start to our year. Doug bought the tickets online, linked what … Continue Reading →


Rock & Roll Hall of Fame

While in Cleveland for Katie’s wedding, I was able to take Doug to the Rock Hall – he hadn’t really been before and it’s one of my favorite places ever. Here are some pics. Steve Miller guitar: That 5-necked guitar tho… Maybelle Carter guitar: Muddy Waters: Elmore James: Elvis: Carl Perkins: Eddie Cochran Chuck Berry: Beatles!!! Ringo’s jacket David Crosby’s … Continue Reading →


Katie’s Wedding

Back way up to June…. I have a bunch of trips and outings that I wanted to blog about separately. I was fortunate enough to be able to go out to Cleveland to see one of my besties, Katie, get married. Her new husband Mark is lovely, and I’m so happy for them both! Here are a few pictures. Pre-wedding … Continue Reading →


What I’ve Been Up To, September, part 1

Cruising into September… Yes, it was the summer of Pokemon Go. This still cracks me up over a month later. My friend Meredith told me there was a Pikachu in our stairwell at lunch – and then there was Alex… Stephanie and Mat came to visit at work: The Godzillas. I think one is mugging the other. Another sunset at … Continue Reading →


What I’ve Been Up To, August, part 2

Back to August! For a while we had a good view of the back of JWST! That is where the science instruments are: I got a JWST shirt (thanks, Tanya! Which I’m hoping they will reprint – they have a lot of requests to do so, so keep them coming! I got an even better picture later, but you’ll have … Continue Reading →


ten albums that made an impact on me

This was a meme from two years ago but I kind of like lists of things, so why not. So – ten albums that made an impact on me… I didn’t choose any greatest hits compilations (though I wanted to) and I tried to stick to one album per band. Though I cheated slightly on two different bands from one … Continue Reading →


What I’ve Been Up To, August, part 1

And now August… Sunset at Allen Pond: Hanging with my girl: Our crepe myrtle survives! My girl in Prisma: Jasmin, my former intern-for-a-week sent me this little pic of her with a Robert Goddard rocket! She found one in the UK!


What I’ve Been Up To, July, part 2

Back to July. It wasn’t so long ago was it? That was when the Pokemon craze started. It was really fun looking around work to see what was a Pokestop. Like John Mather’s Nobel Prize. The Goddard Godzillas are still around. I don’t know if this one is rapeling or is being thrown over. Pretty twilight on a neighborhood walk: … Continue Reading →

Glendening Butterfly Garden in June

Continuing the backlog of blog posts… Back in June we checked out the Glendening Butterfly garden to see how it progressing – normally we go a bunch in the fall. It was not bad though and we did catch a few butterflies.


Victorian Seaside Party

Because of our family vacation getting switched to August due to one niece becoming a teacher and getting out of school late, I had the silver lining of getting to go to Kat’s Victorian picnic, which this year had a Seaside theme. It was nautical and really fun. At first I wasn’t sure what I had that would work, costume-wise, … Continue Reading →


AwesomeCon

Feeling kind of down today, so maybe a post about some happy stuff. How about AwesomeCon? This was a Con I have meant to attend multiple times. Last year health issues kept me away. This year I had organized a science panel for work, so dammit, I was going! The plan was Saturday afternoon panel, and then dinner with Mike … Continue Reading →
