Cucurbita Maxima 2012

This year I decided to do something a little closer to my personal interests and decided to carve a likeness of Neil Armstrong who passed away this year.  Admittedly, it's not my best carving to date, but to be honest, I had a rough day at work and just wanted to get it over with.

Armstrong is someone I personally admire for having the courage and curiosity to go farther away from home than most people will ever go in their lifetime.  Only a handful of men has ever walked on the moon and that is a pretty incredible accomplishment.  Having a job here at Johnson Space Center has really opened my eyes to how much is really discovered through space exploration.

Just to prove that I really did it.

Crickets... Crickets...

I promise I'm not dead.

I have sorely neglected this blog over the past few months, but for acceptable reasons:

  • I started a new job at Analytical Mechanics Associates
  • I moved myself and my family 2000 miles
  • I have been very busy at work
  • We just found out we're having a second baby in April
  • When you're wife is pregnant, you need to do more as a husband so she doesn't get worn out

I have things I have been working on and I have been enjoying my job.  I get to see plenty of cool stuff here in Texas at Johnson Space Center, and I hope to be involved here a great deal more.

Hopefully more creative things will pop up here soon...
