Another week, another Category 5 hurricane. Maria heading towards Puerto Rico.
This week is the eight week mark for foot surgery. Today I was given the doctor’s ok to finally start to move from the surgical boot to the surgical shoe! One small step for Melissa, one…
You might not believe in global warming, but global warming believes in you.

Every time we see Saturn in the night sky, we’ll remember. We’ll smile and we’ll want to go back. 13 amazing years exploring the planet with @CassiniSaturn #GrandFinale #GoodbyeCassini #Cassini. All images are from @NASA. The blue dot is us, so small and alone in the universe. The middle photograph is the last image Cassini took. The third and fourth photos just shows off the beautiful rings.
Another day, another doctors appointment.
Hurricane Irma images taken from my aviation software Foreflight. Beautiful images, crazy hurricane.
My first drone!
Its the “World’s Smallest Camera Drone + 2GB Micro SD Card” all for the low price of $25.00 or $28.98 with shipping. Haha. I don’t expect that much from it, but its a good first start to owning a drone.
This tiny flyer is the smallest drone of its kind to carry its own camera for taking epic shots in the smallest places. Four fast blades make this new quadcopter omni-directional, which in layman’s terms means it can dip, dash, zip, spin, and flip anywhere you tell it to via remote control. Plus its decked out with LED lights so you can embark on night flights and document it all the while. Tote it anywhere you go and let it rip.

Today, September 1, 2017, is the date of the final chapter in Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows. Harry has moved on with his life and is seeing he second child off to Hogwarts. Basically Harry caught up with us and our time. People were celebrating, people were tweeting, and herds of people were at Kings Cross Station at 11am. Basically it was fun and just goes to show how important and beloved these books still are. After all this time. Always.
