This is almost as traumatic for the viewer as it is for the character.

Well, there goes another one of my excuses. Now just create one that lets you sit while running and we'll talk.
Japanese juice company Kagom have done the impossible; they’ve created a wearable 18 lbs. robot that fits comfortably on your shoulders and dispenses succulent tomatoes into your pie hole whilst you go about your morning jog. The robot, called Tomatan, holds up to six medium-sized tomatoes. When you feel the need for a snack or suffer from hunger pangs while on your run, just pull the lever and a lovely tomato plops into your mouth. This is the...

So I got a Syma X-5SC quadcopter for a late Christmas present. Great fun! It has taken me several tries, using three different control modes programmed by Syma, for me to be able to guide it anywhere close to where I want it!

Accordingly, yesterday around dusk I had a real scare--it landed at the very top of the tallest tree in sight, some 250 feet (75 m) up. I thought it was a goner, until late last night I thought of casting a fishing line up to shake it out, but that would have to wait for daylight. I'm glad to report that I was able to get it to fall down, and none the worse for the drop thanks to it being so light.

After bringing it back, I happily retrieved my first really good video from it, surveying the horizon in all directions near my Perry, GA home from up to around 300 ft (90 m) in the air. Of course, more than half of the video was from its stationary perch in the tree, but I cut most of that out of the video, which is in this album. All's well that ends well, and at least I have (mostly) figured out how to fly the silly thing now.

Introduction
I'm a jack of few trades, master of none.

I win the bread as a supervisor for a team collecting data that is fed into our software tool, which predicts and helps mitigate the problem of electronic and electrical components going obsolete. Got that?

I'm currently detoxing from more than a decade of postgraduate work (historical linguistics at the University of Georgia). I'm glad to now be able to pursue my many interests in several unrelated subjects -- not to mention my family (which will always trump all).

I'm also a recovering musician.

To give you an idea of some of my interests, here are a few of my circles:
  • tech (especially Google/Android)
  • science (archaeology, paleontology, anthropology, linguistics)
  • theology
  • music
  • sci-fi TV (among my favorite shows: The X-Files, Babylon 5, LOST, Farscape, Doctor Who...)
Bragging rights
I can do several Muppet voices. Yes, maybe even better than you.

This is a fairly average sized store, so it may not have all the bells and whistles. Its size, helpful employees, and well kept facilities make it one I enjoy for quick trips on the way home from work.

This charming converted railroad depot looks its part of a small-town meeting place. It's fairly small without making one feel claustrophobic. The southern-style seafood was excellent, with healthy portion sizes. While we were there, someone showed up to entertain guests with live music on his acoustic guitar, singing country/folk music.

Definitely worth the admission. The museum is informative - including a video - about the lesser known cash crop "King Rice", responsible for so much plantation-era prosperity. No punches are pulled as the plight of slaves doing this torturous labor is described in detail. The grounds are characterized by the most impressive collection of massive, old (even ancient) live oaks I've seen anywhere, alongside several State of Georgia champion trees of other species. The antebellum complex on premises is well kept with all original/heirloom furniture, and the guide is entertaining and knowledgeable.

The facility is new and in excellent condition. The breakfasts are delicious. They don't nickel and dime guests with amenities: complimentary bikes, kayaks, several tea varieties, wine, beer, etc. The owners are knowledgeable of the area and great conversationalists. Nice view of the marshes. Recommended highly.
