This isn't a "thinking" blog ... it's a "doing" one. Less interesting to read, but very important for me to put down in clear terms what I need to accomplish this week. I hav... Read more

Eight planes in less than 2 weeks, and laying my head to rest in 3 states besides my own ... it was fun, but it's nice to be home. I introduced my sweetheart of over 2 years to my parents in Tennessee, and all went well. He flew in from Californ... Read more
