rspic1rspic2I'm a student of music, all kinds of course. My server maintains a short list of music playable online for comparative educational purposes only, but a good listen, with lyrics, when available. So, if you find yourself with a good connection speed and want to compare notes, here's a link from another one of my servers. 





Astro Phenomena

With increasing numbers of survey satellites observing our sun, earth, and much of our solar system, we can only reason there will be copious amounts of unknown data collected. All new discoveries are exciting and automatically beg rationalizations which inevitably lead to premature wildly speculative assumptions. Most observations inevitably become explainable even understandable, given enough exploration and time. These are a few links of current observations I find interesting and remain hopeful for further study:

Nik Approaching KUGN in Diamond DA42

Aviation's view . . .

. . . is spectacular and all the effort to learn how to fly rewards one beyond it's cost. Link to the YouTube video of this approach to Waukegan, IL. airport, KUGN, in this Diamond DA42 called N822SA. This was my first flight in four years in a twin engine aircraft and first flight in the DA42 series. So cut me a little slack on the strong crosswind landing on the ILS23 with winds 270@12G20. I actually started flying when I was big enough to reach the rudder pedals back in 2009, here on YouTube flying my first Cessna 152 out of Waukesha County airport KUES. It was a bumpy day. Most recent flight at Watertown, WI, also in a C152. On my sixteenth birthday Capt. Robert Kluever introduced me to Delta's old B737 and current B777, which he flys on Pacific routes. My solo at KRYV on July 30th, 2017 in C152 - 94429. FAA Private Pilot check ride passed on 8-31-18 with Jim Notstad, DPE.


Sailing Paprika

Captain Robert Kluever ( DAL Boeing 777) maintains this excellent Tartan 37 up in Door County, Wisconsin, which he allows me to helm, navigate, sheet sails and power up the auxiliary, every summer. I've been doing this since I was about seven years old. Nothing beats sailing on Lake Michigan in the summer, especially when there's a good wind and no engine sound.
