Chevy Equinox

I was planning to keep the Chevy Tracker until it wouldn't run anymore, but it developed a number of annoyances that would be costly to fix and I would still have a 14 year old car. Friday I traded the Tracker in on a new Chevrolet Equinox. It will really put the crunch on my budget. I'll have to tighten by belt and dine on Mac & Cheese for a long while.

WARNING ! Mad Scientist At Work !

Hill Street Blues was in it's second season the last time I did anything in electronics. The Great Courses produced a new course on basic electronics. It tweaked my interest in electronics again. I picked up a text book and lab manual on electronics.

I am starting to work some of the labs. One lab is to build this simple electronic metronome.

Flying Ralston-Central Park in Arvada

The city of Arvada just completed a complete renovation of one of the parks along Ralston Creek Trail. Ralston-Central Park at West 58th & Garrison in Arvada, Colorado includes new restrooms, a water park, 2 play areas, a large picnic pavilion, and a large open space. I took my quadcopter out for a quick fly over of the new park Friday morning.
