Well, once again I’ve missed posting things… Damnit.
Let’s go in order of the title.
Work – Today I posted an RFQ for our website at work (Website Design & Development Request for Qualification). This has always been my job. I’m quite upset about this and have asked my boss why, but the only answer I ever get is, “I don’t know the reason”. I have been kept completely out of the loop, told or asked nothing. At this point, I don’t know what the fuck to do. Should I make an appointment with our chairperson? Last time I tried talking with my bosses boss, I just got pushed up. I have, and have had, a website started since the first of the year and have asked my boss to see what people think, but once again, nothing. No input what so ever. I understand I will be keeping my job to maintain the site, but I know the damn thing inside and out, so who better to make another one. Anyway, I’m quite distraught about this.
Photos – I have a few to being uploaded for this post, photos and videos, from the past week or so.
Not much has been happening, just work mainly. The other day I tried taking a slow motion video of some Hummingbirds with the drone. I set the drone up on the front deck railing, went back in the house and sat there triggering the drone to record. After splicing and merging all the clips, I ended up with about 30 seconds in real time footage, but taken in 1080p at 240 FPS, it lasts 6 minutes. I’ll have to try this again sometime.
I also took a few different sunset photos with the drone flying up from the house. The first one is about 15 minutes before the second. Both photos are looking across the road from my place. The creek is Six Mile Creek and most the land is Six Mile Creek Preserve, part of the Keweenaw Land Trust. The land around the preserve is DNR land.

Just after landing the drone rain started falling.
I finally did it, I bought a new drone, a proper drone. I picked up a good deal on a DJI Mavic Air 2 from Amazon. It’s also on a payment plan, which is the only way I would have been able to afford it. Along with the drone I got the “Fly more” kit which has extra propellers, extra batteries, a bag and a couple other things.
I’ve had two previous drones, one quite a few years ago and was all manual and I called it Bruiser because I crashed it so much. The next drone I’ve had was a low end drone and did have a good camera and a number of other thing. This second drone did so me what I could do with a current drone though, so that’s what got me to buy this newest one. It’s not coming until next week, but I’m pretty excited about it.
Because I haven’t posted lately, here are some random photos I’ve taken over the past few weeks.
Work has kept me very busy ever since COVID-19 came around. I think that’s the main reason I haven’t posted as much as I’d like to.
Speaking of COVID, what a fucking disgrace the US has be come. We have a president that doesn’t give a shit about how many people are getting sick and dying.
It’s been one year since Grizwald passed over the rainbow bridge. I miss him every day.
Every night as I go to bed, I look out my bedroom window to see the little light I placed by Giz’s grave and say “Good night Grizwaldie”.
He always had this attentive and knowing look when I was talking to him.
