Looks like flying back from Syracuse may be somewhat more interesting than I had hoped for.... snow is falling; at least these folks know what to do about it. DC would have declared a holocaust and made a run on the supermarkets by now.
Could be worse. My son told me tonight that when he flew back from China after Christmas he went thru Wuhan a couple of days before the outbreak started. His wife stayed back to help with her mother and got back a couple of weeks ago. Neither of them have any symptoms!!! She is from a a big city in Southern China which is a very long way from Wuhan. I cannot imagine trying to get back from there now. Best part of him living in California is I have a destination for a motorcycle ride last summer made it to Idaho this summer I'm going all the way.
looks like I'll fly at 0730 this morning. Nice to be formally recognized for the effort, and the results. Getting mentioned by name for what I do is a affirmation of my process, etc. Good to get home, glad I packed extra everything so I will arrive reasonably unmussed.
“I would like to give a shout out to Jake Kiehlmeier (SPN-50 Test Lead) and Robert Nees (Naval Surface Warfare Dahlgren EEE) this week. They both changed their plans, dug in, and have been up at SAAB in Syracuse, NY all week to lead the troubleshooting of EDM1 following the test failures. They are laying out the path forward to correct the issues and get us back into testing, and truly represent the values of Competence of knowing their job and Courage to jump right in and do it when the need arises. What’s awesome about this is that it isn’t an anomaly; I see this repeated by members of our team across all our sites, across all of our capabilities, and around the world, day in and day out! Thank you and BZ!”
Since it's a Federal holiday today, I was looking out the window about 8a.m., When I noticed all of our livestock was looking at something. Rapt attention by prey animals means Threat, 99% of the time. I see something waddling along one of the inner fencelines..... Thought it was a ground hog...
Many have asked for it, a place for all the political outcasts and misfits to come and dialogue in peace, without fear of offending, boring, or wasting Random BS Chat space.
So come, ye a-holes and trolls, ye pedants and sycophants, ye lefties and righties.
Come, throw down the gauntlet, drop...
