It's a power grid Saturday night.

Celebration Friday! A bunch of folks know, but I never made an announcement proper. Here goes. In September 2018 I was unexpectedly laid off from my IT job at the law firm I had been at for 10 years. It was a shock, to be sure. I had decided to see this as an opportunity (being that I was just turning the big 4-0 in January) to figure out what I really want to do with my days and my skills. I spent the time since then really figuring out who I am, and coming to terms with some things where I might not be who I thought I was, and realizing I was OK with that. After much self-analysis I realized that what I really want is to work around airplanes. I have always loved them and still do, so as I filtered through the paths it always came to the top. Long story (already long, sorry) short, last Monday I started my new job as an avionics assembler at Diamond Aircraft. I have really, really enjoyed my first week. I get to work with my hands and build things. It really, really makes me happy. I'm getting up waaay earlier than I'm used to, but I'm still happy when I get there. I'm excited for what the future holds; it's been a while since I could say that.

Spent the day making a lasagna for dinner, with noodles from scratch for the first time!

#familyday board game time.

A nice way to spend a Sunday afternoon @richmondtavernlive with @newportelectric

Miss doing this. @leahmorise and @lirettegreg sound so good.

Sooooo apparently if you don't use your @djiglobal phantom vision 2 for a while the wifi controller board goes on strike. Time for some surgery.

Well on my way to droning for dollars!

#frustrating: top pic is @netflix app running on my old @apple ipad1, bottom is Netflix unable to install on an iPad mini 2. THERE IS NO REASON FOR IT NOT TO WORK. Netflix runs great on iPad 1. Can we do away with this "your device is too old better get rid of it and buy a new shiny one" garbage?

Sudbury! I have it on good authority that these Country Casanovas are headed to @townehousetavern . You should go.

So this happened #mikes40thsurprisebirthdayweekend @helitours that was amazing! @leahmorise you are rocking this trip!

Turning 40 is made much sweeter when @leahmorise plans your #mikes40thsurprisebirthdayweekend in Toronto! First stop is @the.cameronhouse for @davidceliamusic. I have no idea what's next, but this is a good start!
