Interesting place this Batuu. Watch out for First Order goons. Other than that much bigger planet than I expected.
Found a really cool home automation solution that I was able to pick up from Amazon Prime for a really good price. I ordered the Sengled Starter Kit and a couple of smart wifi plugs. In about 30 minutes most of which was getting one more device, the Sengled Hub, next to the wifi router that my iPad works off of all plugged in. Best use is to have a ethernet cable to connect the hub to your WiFi router and a power outlet for the hub. The starter kit comes with the hub plus two wifi led bulbs. Loaded up the Sengled app on the iPad and the rest of the setup was very efficient and painless.
I how have the light in the living room on one of the smart plugs and programmed to come on each evening and off at bedtime. The system really works well and I had no problems connecting any of the devices and setting up locations and programs. If you are thinking about automating your home this is a well thought out solution at a good price. Highly Recommended.

Back in the early days of flight the AutoGyro was a thing. I haven’t seen many lately but this cute green two seater has been flying around the airport next to the golf course lately.
Trying to get a shot of the Moon an Venus last night. Bit of a thunder cloud decided it wanted to get in on the act. Shortly afterwards both the Moon and Venus were eaten by the cloud.
Got the 360 degree camera for my Essential phone
Falcon Heavy lifted off from Pad 39A today lifting a Tesla in to an orbit somewhat near Mars’ orbit at it max somewhat closer to the sun when it’s not. The two smaller objects are the outer rockets doing a burn for reentry prior to landing back at Cape Canaveral.
Go see it. Visually stunning.
