I am very much looking forward to Peter Capaldi taking over as the Doctor, and not just because I never really took to Matt Smith.
Got my back today from work, and I'm quite thrilled about it. Not a permanent possession (yet), but for the next month or so, I will be happy to be an Explorer once again. And I'm quite thrilled that it means I'll have it for my trip to Orlando (and especially when I visit and ) next month.
While I bought the Glass, my company reimbursed me for them, so technically they own them. However, there was no real plan for the device other than Look, we've got this cool new piece of technology! So my hope is that I'll be able to commandeer them - like for this trip - and no one will ask for them back. Because frankly, I'm going to get significantly more use out of them than they will sitting in a cabinet someplace at my company.
If you enjoyed learning about all that we've discovered in the short time that we've been exploring the COSMOS. Then help NASA get the funding they need to continue pushing the frontier.

In honor of the premier of tomorrow night, I felt the need to change my profile picture to my brush with Neil deGrasse Tyson when I attended the GRAIL launch Tweetup event.
Honestly, one of the best memories of that event (which was all-around awesome) was getting a random astronomy lesson from NDT in a parking lot at 4:00am while we were waiting to board some buses. And for the record, he carries a powerful laser pointer with him for just such occasions.
The Fox station just happened to have an editing "mistake" at precisely the moment when evolution was briefly mentioned. But I'm sure it was an honest mistake...I mean why would a Fox network want to ignore all evidence of evolution? That's just silly.
I found out that "Wild" Bill Guarnere (of Band of Brothers fame) passed away on the Saturday at the age of 90.
If you haven't seen the HBO miniseries (or read the Stephen Ambrose book on which the it's based), you are missing out of a brilliant look at a group of WWII soldiers.
My wife and I were lucky enough to have lunch with Bill Guarnere back in 2009 while we were in Philadelphia visiting my sister. He was incredibly nice and gracious and more than willing to tell stories of his WWII Days and the fame that found him after the miniseries. It was a pretty amazing afternoon that came about fairly randomly.
Rest in peace, Bill.
I will be watching this and then getting the DVD (assuming they release it) of it so I can share with my son when he gets older.
Yesterday was my first full day with the Flex, and I managed to hit all my goals for the day (although I was under on their Calories In measure...not sure if this is good or bad). Like any time I take up exercising, the challenge isn't meeting goals for the first few days or even a week or two, but the sustained challenge of keeping it up.
But, there's that ancient saying about the longest journey starting with a single step, so I should just take some small measure of pride in hat I accomplished yesterday and keep trying to hit the goals today.
