360º Full Motion Video Panorama
Make sure you click on the > to start the video. Then drag your mouse left or right on the video. The video clip is short so I have looped it so that you can get the idea of moving around the video. You can also zoom the video, although the resolution isn't so great then.

I have been writing on the Internet for many years. Recently I have settled on Weebly as the platform of choice. Here is a list of other places I have written blogs in the past:
On the day when I had my best results with my Hubsan X4, flying it in a large field in front of the William Cullen Bryant homestead, I also lost it. Sigh.
I started flying at about 3:30pm. I had two flights where each time I could get the drone to climb but it kept going away from my, not just rising above. I am not skilled enough with the controller to understand all of the motions needed to reverse its current direction, and so in both cases it kept going the direction it started in. Not that I wasn't able to change its direction, but that I couldn't change it in the right direction. In each of the first two cases, I managed to bring the drone down a medium distance from me.
Each time I have flown the X4 I have managed to gain more confidence, so progress has been made.
The last time I flew it, the wind had picked up -- so in addition to not being able to control it in calm air, I had the added problem of more confidence and less control because of the wind. And, once I understood that I had lost control (or felt over confident that I could regain control) I didn't land it. I could have. But I didn't, thinking that if I could just keep it up there, I could bring it back to a place where I coud land it. It also didn't didn't help that the drone drifted into a spot right in line with the Sun, so I lost sight of it. By this time, it was too late even though I knew it was still up there. But, rather than doing anything else, I just turned the throttle down and turned off the controller -- knowing that it was unlikely that I could find it -- and sure enough, after 15 minutes of searching in the easy places, I called it a day.
My friend, Henry Houh, founder of Einstein's Workshop has teamed up with a guy who created a 3D matrix of cameras (over 100) that is able to take three dimensional photographs of large objects -- in this case, people. Here are 6 models Henry and Co. made of our family. Truly amazing. The next amazing thing is that Henry is going to arrange for some of these models to be printed in 3D, resulting in 6" figures of the four of us.
This post is about windows in Will Forsdick's condo at the above address. I am documenting this so that the people at Blaine Window can figure out the parts that need to be purchased for the casement windows.

In my home business, I frequently need boxes to hold 2x2" 35mm slides. When I look up such items on the Internet, I am annoyed to only find relatively expensive products for storing slides. So, being kind of handy with paper, I decided to create my own template that I can cut from the numerous boxes I get from Amazon. Here is that template. With some used cardboard, a utility knife, a dull butter knife for scoring the edges, and a hot glue gun, you can come up with a useful box for slides. Click to see template full size so you can read the dimensions.
Today I rode my bike over to the Center to see what was going on. Although still not ready, the contractors have made a lot of progress. Since I will be away next week, this will be my last sneak peek at construction progress before the Center opens on July 6th.
Below are a set of pictures I took as I walked around the building with Clerk of the Works, Don Johnson.
Stopped by the ALMOST FINISHED Lexington Community Center this afternoon for my weekly look-see. Major progress, still some distance to go... Here are the photos I took by looking at the outside and looking into a couple of windows... [Slide your mouse over the photos to see captions. Click to see a larger view]
In the back of the Center, many nice flowers have been growing for a long time.
The good news is that the flowers have been preserved!
