Piggy Back

Early back to back meetings this morning put a damper on my run.  I may have to start piggy backing my meetings with my runs.  If it's a listen only meeting, I might be able to get away with it, or else I will have to stop, un-mute, and then speak.

I pick Luke up after his practice and we shoot over to Sachem East to see Kyle's 2nd half against Ward Melville.  We stop at McDonald's to get Luke a snack.  The game does not go in their favor today, and ends in a 3-1 loss.  Luke and I head home while Sue waits for Kyle to get out of the locker room.

This day in history "An optimistic and upbeat President John F. Kennedy suggests that the Soviet Union and the United States cooperate on a mission to mount an expedition to the moon. The proposal caught both the Soviets and many Americans off guard."

Imagine if the US and USSR piggy backed their collective resources in the space race.

Instead we boldly went forward and made it to the moon and established the shuttle program.  Sadly, the current administration has hit the NASA budgets hard, and is leaning towards un-manned exploration.  Dare I say we need to piggy back with another space agency (Russia, China, India ??)

Chicken wings two ways tonight...baked with breadcrumbs (the flat ones), and deep fried buffalo (the chubby ones).  Two CSA farm fresh sides.  Green beans, and sweet potatoes.  This little piggy stayed home.

As usual these days, it is help with homework and then settle down to watch some TV.  Glee is on....

  • Endeavour flew atop its carrier airplane from Houston to California on Thursday on a journey that included an Arizona flyover in honor of former Rep. Gabrielle Giffords.

    The ultimate piggy back ride.

How cool is that.  Good old fashioned American Ingenuity.
