Stefan's Current News
I started my tomatoes and peppers in starter trays. The tomatoes and Habeneros have already sprouted. I'm still waiting for the sweet peppers and Ghost Peppers.
I also saw Annihilation and was confused as I'm sure the director wanted. I was really expecting it to look more like Avatar and that was disappointing. But the characters were interesting even if the storyline didn't make sense. They immediately have a 4 day memory loss upon entering but don't immediately return? That makes no sense. If no one returns why deasnt the Army attach a rope to the next team and pull them out after one hour? Or maybe have a wired communication system if radios don't work? Most unscientific error - Playing random with DNA doesn't make flowers: It makes death. The plant people were very cool though.
I saw Black Panther at the theater and the special effects were well done. Some of the acting was impressive. The plot was pretty basic for an introductory movie: The super hero had to fight to prove his worthiness. I'm not sure how to comment on the social sub-agenda plot without sounding racist so I'll not say anymore. But I'm sure that part had a major influence on it's box office return and popularity.
Some RPI alums got together to watch RPI play Cornell at the Hurricane Grill in John's Creek. It was a fun night. The Cornell people are very friendly and the food id pretty good. Unfortunately RPI lost badly.
The Great American Motorcycle Show at the Cobb Galleria was lame. Paying for parking was silly but I guess Suntrust Park forced that. The show was the same as every year with nothing of note. All the pro-gun and conservative agenda stuff has worn me down. I just want to see the bikes. This was my last visit.Could there be a worse commercial? A person enters the bar confused and alone. A pretty girl talks to them and suggests a particular drink. They order it, to strike up a conversation with her, but the pretty girl disappears. Was she a total tease or did she just smile at them to sell her whiskey? Jim Bean - For Pathetic lonely people everywhere. That's not the whiskey group I want to be join. Though Mila Kunis is totally hot and would have been completely seduced too.
|I met up with my old college buddy Chris and a bunch of RPI Alumni at the Hurricane Grill in John's Creek. The RPI Alumni Chapter of Atlanta organized a meet up with Clarkson alumni to watch the hockey game. Clarkson beat us very badly but we still had a good time. I guess there were ten RPI folks to the twenty Clarkson people. That's Bill on the far left. He's done a great job organizing these events. We'll do it again next month with Cornell.|
|I'm happy to be part of the Lockheed Martin LM-100J certification program and overjoyed and proud of my co-workers for their recent success. LM has been building the C-130/L-100 for over 60 years and first introduced the C-130J for the military in 1996. With FAA certification of the LM-100J, the civil aviation market will finally get to utilize this incredible airplane. Congratulations to the entire LM-100J team for passing another important milestone. [Click for videos]
At the same time I am happy to announce I just celebrated my 20th anniversay at Lockheed Martin. It has been an amazing experience.
