Steam cleaning and Air Zoos

The Stanley Steamer guys, J and J, just left my house and I now have a nice clean wet carpet. It should be dry by noon tomorrow, leaving me with sufficient time to prepare for the New Year's Day feast at my place. The battle for Christmas is over, the Battle of New Year's is about to begin.

My model rocket club, SMASH, received a last minute invitation to demonstrate our models at the Kalamazoo Air Zoo this past Thursday and Friday. To my pleasure, we managed to pull things together and put on an excellent display. Even a last minute change from one demonstration launch per day to two caused only minor consternation. We launched helicopter and glider recovery models as well as the more traditional parachute and streamer models. We had fun and the museum people seemed happy.
