Welcome to Friday! I’ve been engaged in some desultory cleanup of both my office and my work — trying to get things ready for the new year. Hopefully, we can get out and do something family friendly this weekend. The kids are pretty much nuts after a week off. Next week we send them off to daycare again. My wife will be standing at the door, grinning wildly when we do, I’m sure.

Damn, why can’t you Minnesotans bring your Minnesota Nice to Disney?

Beechcraft manufacturing plant experiences uncontrolled depressurization event after nitrogen line rupture. At least there was no fire afterwards.

I’m a sucker for a good rocket launch picture.

Huh, its weird that we are friends with our neighbors. Note, having kids of a similar age is probably the number one way neighbors make friends. Although, picking up after a hurricane certainly helped.
