    YAY! Congrats to you both! Gainful employment is what keeps us geeks going. How else could we attend all those cons and fun events?

    Watch out for icebergs!!!
    I just read an article that there are about 100 icebergs around the coast of NZ in the main ship routes. I am sure Kai is flying, but still...ya never know.

    Nowhere to stick this at this point (until a Holiday thread goes up)
    But I have to say I like the new look of the SCFF. Very snowy and classically cool (every pun intended).

    Speaking of pretty cool, check out Small World at Disneyland for something a bit different.

    Every quarter hour at night the lights cut off and they project a light show onto the backdrop/clock tower. Way cool.

    Was nice there last weekend, a bit too warm for the holidays, but the lights at night still got us in the Christmas spirit.


    For those that are local, don't forget the following displays:


    *Scotts Valley Xmas light competition, just off Mt. Hermon Road exit on Highway 17 (on the right as you head towards Felton on Mt. Hermon Road.
    http://www.thevalleypost.com/article.php?id=130

    *Holiday Train at Roaring Camp
    http://www.roaringcamp.com/events.html

    This one is fun, we did it a couple of years and it was a nice ride.

    *San Jose Christmas in the Park
    http://www.christmasinthepark.com/

    *Los Gatos Fantasy of Lights
    http://www.sccgov.org/portal/site/fol/

    Done this once this year, we'll go back again, awesome light display. The pirate ship is the coolest, it even "fires" cannon balls of light!!

    So, cool falconry thing for today.
    Rushed home to beat the sunset and grabbed Miss Kaya (hawk) and headed to our local park. I am working on flying her to the fist so I thought I'd start about where we left off with 10 feet. In no time we were closer to 30 feet and I had a small audience. She performed magnificently until the sun was going down and she wanted to find a tree for the night. I wasn't having any of that so I gathered her up and we walked around for a bit.

    She's not ready to fly off the leash yet, but we're getting there! Lookout bunnies, here comes Kaya!
