Road trip - and my first post

Thanks Madie for setting up my account. I can finally post on my own . But I don't want to hurt myself with overly much effort, so I'll start with a short one. My goal is to actually describe what I do at work and make it understandable by means of some white magic. But that is for later. A couple of weeks ago I visited Rosie at Pratt, and we wandered around trains and buses in Brooklyn and walked around the Williamsburg neighborhood. I had so much fun just hanging out with Rosie.

Then an Amtrak train down to Philadelphia and a week spent training new members on the Fixed Income Risk team, etc.

I'll just slap some photos on here and call it a night. If all works I'll have a photo of Rosie, one of Ben playing soccer, and one of me in an ultralight. Oh yeah, I should do an entry on my fantastic ultra-light flight too. I had a blast zooming 20 feet above fields and along the Rock river. And when we went up high, we could see to Rockford and Rochelle. thanks for that present!

I am severely jealous of your ultralight flight. It looks really cool. Was it loud? How were the takeoff and landings? Matt.

That sounds awesome. We should talk more about your flight sometime. I love you.

The take off was very fast and easy. The plane almost jumped into the air. The landing was easy, too, but I think if you weren't a good pilot it could be really rough. The pilot and I wore ear phones so we could talk. I hadn't thought of it before, but it's like riding in a convertible at highway speeds -- very windy.

Oh, and I forgot to laugh at you Matt. Ha Ha Ha, you don't have your own account and I do. I'm so proud.

Excuse me, Rosie, but I don't think Tim will be sky-diving. Over my dead body!
