Timbuktu

Estate Closed

I just received the official letter from the probate court. David's estate is officially closed. None of my siblings made an official grumble. (or unofficial grumble for that matter.) I still have tax returns to deal with in January, but now I have last year's forms to use as a template so it should be easier this year.

I have heard enough horror stories about other families and estates that I am truly grateful for the siblings I have.

Rocket Science

One of the events in this year's rocket season in random altitude. This is where the contest director announces an altitude between 100 and 300 meters at the beginning of a contest. The contestants each have one chance to fly a rocket to exactly that altitude. No practice runs. I have been doing computer modeling to determine the best model/engine combinations to fly to various altitudes.

Nothing seems to want to fly to the half way point of 200 meters.
