Hey guys, I know this is a 2 hour video, however even with my massive amount of ADHD, it was very worth the time to watch this weeks congressional subcommittee hearing.

I'm about an hour and ten minutes in, and I have to break off for the moment. It's interesting to watch though and even more interesting to see that the UK is viewed as being ahead of the US.

Having followed some of the developments in the UK, I'm seeing every sign that the Nanny State is about to step in and make it basically impossible for most folks, through the simple medium of over-regulation.

Guess we'll see... I'll watch the rest of this tomorrow sometime.

The Beautiful Scenery of #Catacamas   #Honduras  

While shooting some documentary footage of a couple of missionaries, I was able to meet with the mayor of Catacamas Lincoln Figueroa, and senator Alfredo Moradel.

Set the the Honduran National Anthem, this aerial of the flag was while at city hall, and the mountain views was from Senator Moradel's family retreat north of the city about 10 min into the mountain range.

The Cerro de la Cruz, (Hill of the Cross), is a beautiful landmark high above the city nestled in the green lush of the mountainside.

Shot with #DJI  Phantom 2, #goprohero4  
While filming a documentary in Catacamas, Honduras, the team from GlobalVideoHQ captured stunning aerial video of the city and vibrant tropical landscape.

Homemade #Gyro meat

Super cheap and easy. I have a meat grinder, so in the "sell quick" section of the grocer was a pack of two lamb shoulder chops and another with a one .75 lbs beef ribeye steak. Both marked 50% off. So meat total was $9.

De-bone, cube, and chill. (Grind only cold meats so the fat cuts not squishes) add salt, pepper, and Italian seasoning mix. Grind with your smallest blade or just put in the food processor.

Line a loaf pan with wax paper adding extra paper to fold both sides on top of your meat. Gently press the meat down to compress. Chill for 2 hours to let the salt absorb moisture. 
Bake at 300 for about an hour or till firm or 165 degrees internal temp.
Cut in 1/4 inch slices and pan fry (dry pan, meat has plenty of fat) till crispy. NOW, you are ready to eat with +Leslie Thompson  homemade Tzatziki sauce.

It was a BEAUTIFUL day.....
 
Aerial Photo in Dallas
Today I Flew a roof inspection of the Crescent Office Towers. I am the spec at the top center of the image standing on the roof.

The Roofing company needed to get a count of the slate tiles that are damaged or missing. Repelling was the only other option they had with the extreme Pitch of the roof.

As cool as the shot is, what most people don't realize is that the property owners lease an immense amount of space in the roof for cell towers and other electronic transmitters and receivers. These obviously can cause interference with your command and control radio, As well as your video downlink transmission.

Prior to accepting a job like this, it is critical that you have specific UAV liability insurance for your drone. For all of our birds, We carry a $1 million per Bird policy. With property owners being more educated, most will require a certificate of insurance for the specific gig.

With all that said, let me geek out for second and simply say, I have the coolest job in the world.

I was kind of nervous to go, but Deanne, the manager and staff were really nice. The office was super clean. Over all my visit was very nice. I do wish the Google map was more accurate.

Shuug, Hon, and Darlin' are three of may favorite words when I enter a restaurant. I honestly don't know whether i love the food or the people more. I absolutely love the food at Tierney's. I have clients that fly in to DFW for business and while I used to take them to the "Finest Steak" restaurants. Nothing gets remembered more that the food and crew here. My faves: Chicken Fried Steak Chicken and Dumplin's Potato Chip Chicken Salmon Salad Caliente Burger

Probably the BEST meal I have had locally. From appetizer to dessert, every dish resulted in an OMG that is good moment. Service was impeccable, Waiter was Tony, and was perfectly attentive. Now the bad. The place needs a serious decor update. The chairs are so heavy they could hold you down in a hurricane. I promise to help pay for a remodel by coming for dinner more often.
