Jeremiah at E-tech

Last week Jeremiah spent a week at the Engineering Technologies Academy in Dayton, Ohio, at Wright State University. It was a CAP National Cadet Special Activity. Because I have to work weekends, Duane had to drive to OH to drop him off and come back for the week, then drive to OH to pick him up and bring him back.

This is the engineering building where they had their classes.

Cadets in one of their classes. I don't know what all they studied, but J. brought home a huge notebook. They covered stuff in different branches of engineering.

This is at the Bio-Medical Section of WSU. Don't ask me what it is!

They also got to tour parts of the US Air Force Museum that people don't usually get to see. This is a UAV (Unmaned Aerial Vehicle).

This is "The Tower." It is where all top secret projects are done. No camera's were allowed inside. This is at the AFRL (Air Force Reaserch Laboratory).

Jeremiah had a really great time ;)

Sounds intellectual to me! I'm sure I wouldn't have understood a word of what was going on!!!

Got your note about the commercial on my blog. Yeah, it brings tears to my eyes, too.

Tried to e-mail you but I must have an old address. Laura forwarded your blog address along to me and I lost at least 30
minutes at work looking at it and some of the other blogs. How did you add that section about favorite blog links on the side?

BTW, I saw several comments about having trouble posting pictures at certain times on blogger. A frequent frustration of mine, too. The solution, I've discovered, is to use Mozilla Firefox as your browser when you are creating and uploading posts with pictures, instead of IE. When doing this, I have not had any difficulty whatsoever. Let me know if you have questions about this.

Had dinner with Shaun Pearman in Denver on Saturday night. We had a very pleasant time together. First time I've seen him since 1975.

My e-mail address is palmer.muntz@oit.edu.

Well, I'd certainly take Palmer's comment about "the commercial bringing tears to his eyes" with . .. . ah, no comment. I think that he'd only be effected if he'd been sniffing the cleanser!

Glad to help get you all kind of hooked back together again. You and Nancy were very special to me, spending time with a child who was 4-6 years younger than you (the only time I didn't like you was when you "locked" me into Mr. Walker's car). Glad I could provide you two amusement. - Laura

That was a great experience for Miah to have and we trust it will deepen and strengthen his determination to do an engineering degree somewhere. C/ville is getting a great reputation in that area and of course LeTourneau, that's their roots, their strong point. I Palmer bald, or just a shaved head? What is his blog so we see this commercial. Nice photos you've posted. Nice horse Alesha has.

Thanks for all of your comments! Dad, you can get to Palmer's blog by clicking on Palmer's World to the left of my blog under Blogging Friends. They have adopted a beautiful Chinese girl named MelodyJoy and they have 3 boys. As far as bald vs. shaved, perhaps he'll comment...
Laura, I don't remember the car episode. What on earth did we do? You two were our best friends ever.

I don't remember it, either, but apparently we psychologically scarred you....oh dear. I do remember one day when I was laying down on the front seat in our car waiting for my mom to come, when Natalie said, "I dare you to blow the horn." I didn't think that was much of a dare, but I had no idea that Mr. Koch was standing right in front of the car. So I blew the horn and I guess he jumped a mile. Unfortunately I didn't get to see it because I was still laying down. Natalie got all the delight of laughing at both me AND Mr. Koch!

To both Dusty Penguin and Hannatu --

I think the biggest thing was I really thought I was locked into Mr. Walker's convertible -- a teacher's car, nonetheless! And being a child (and with no automatic locks in those days!), not figuring I could get out of the car myself (unless you two were holding up the car door handles -- hmmm. . . ). And right before we moved, I spent the night with you two and you told me that if I slept with my wristwatch in bed that I'd get dustbunnies inside of my watch. Also the first time I'd ever had fried egg sandwiches -- and with ketchup -- after Sunday night church. D.P., please pass on to H.


Blogless in Woodinville

Oh boy, dustbunnies in your watch. Where did we come up with this stuff? It's a wonder you considered us friends. I didn't know we were such pranksters--as bad as my dad!
Well, the fried egg sandwich with ketchup is still a family favorite, plus a few other oddities!

Well, my husband is a fan of fried egg sandwiches and though I'd never had one again until I met him, at least it wasn't a comletely foreign concept (minus the ketchup, that is -- to each their own condiment).

(And you two WERE great friends)

Well, one blog leads to another.
First, I hope the E-Tech trip will give Jeremiah a goal that will make his high school studies more realistic.
When I had the dream of becoming a pilot in the 8th grade, it completely changed my perspective on school. From doing as little as possible to get by, almost overnight I changed to asking myself, "how can this help me become a better pilot. My whole attitude and perspective toward school changed.

2nd, although I have not been to this facility, I expect that I will be working with folks from there, as they have an icing wind tunnel, and I have an SAE(Society of Aeronautical Engineers) paper due on pitot-static icing.

3rd, I consider the Wright Pat AF Museum to be one of the finest in the world

and E., I've watched my blog tracker blossom in different parts of the country, but didn't know who was reading. I've figured out that one must be Palmer in Oregon, and we probably have a Chinese connection.

And finally, 5th on my convoluted list - who is Laura? I should know from Denver, but I can't remember.

Keep the shiny side up, and the greasy side down -

Laura is Palmer's younger sister. (Muntz). As you were in college and we were all younger you wouldn't have known them well, but probably remember them being around as all of us were great friends regardless of age variations.

Finally made the connection that was floating around in the non-ethernet of my brain.
Their dad was my college librarian.

(Thanks for the help (my) Dad )

Hi Natalie and Dean,
Guess what!? The apartment we're in has wireless!!!:) Hopefully I'll post a new blog in a few days. Still jetlagged. I wanted to post a comment on chinglishman, but it won't let me. Don't know why. Anyway, time to update, Natalie!

Yes, everyone, it's time for me to update. Hopefully tomorrow or Friday! August has been a wild whirlwind, getting two children out of the house, plus spending a week in TN helping a widow pack to move. More later!

I was just going to point out that it's been a month, then you pop up again. But it's been a month. And like a boa constrictor, I'm getting hungry. Feed me.
Any pics from Cedarville? Feed me.
