Got Time ?

Welcome to waiting.

Start your day, the Redstone way…

I know, at least is not Atlanta, New York, or LA – but it does get tedious. This is the welcoming committee that greets us every morning going to work @MSFC. Everyone has to show their ID to get thru the gates into Redstone Arsenal.
I understand security concerns, and recognize that this is necessary.
I don’t have to like it tho.
On a good day there may only be a 5 min creep-along session. On a bad day I have idled stop-n-go style a few miles, for as much as 50 minutes. To get the 5 minute version, one needs to get there about 06:30, or wait until about 09:30.
There is a lot more I could say about this, but choose not to today.
One of these days, I will not be doing this every day.         JusSayn..
I just wanted to share the picture …
Thanks  /;^)

Finally – a new header image

Now I have randomly rotating header images !

WP rotate header option

WP header image selection

I had seen this option in other WP themes I am using, but I didn’t want to change away from the theme I am using here (Coraline). Turns out this theme has the same options, but those buttons are not shown until you upload more than one header image… Duh..!.. Try it out, every page load gets a different header.
Cool  /;^)

These might be for sale soon.

I may have too many radios… These two may be for sale soon.
Nothing fancy, certainly not new. Not heavily used or abused;
these are well-suited to become first rigs for new licensees, or as a backup or dedicated mobile/portable equipment to augment existing stations.

2012 in review

The WordPress.com stats helper monkeys prepared a 2012 annual report for this blog.

Here’s an excerpt:

600 people reached the top of Mt. Everest in 2012. This blog got about 4,900 views in 2012. If every person who reached the top of Mt. Everest viewed this blog, it would have taken 8 years to get that many views.
