I Have Faith …

Above is Jason of RemotePilot101.com, an instructor extraordinaire. I’m taking an online drone course to obtain something called a 14 CFR Part 107 certification.  This will allow me fly my drone commercially.  Yes, I can make money.

Today, my instructions were about aeronautical charts and airspace. While showing how to read one of these maps, I had to follow the instructors mouse.  Well. that was difficult to do because the mouse didn’t standout from the chart.  It was like watching this “i” moving around this whole  blog post, not easy.

I came up with an suggestion to make that lesson easier to understand.  My instructions comes with an area to email questions to RemotePilot.com for help.  So I decided to send my suggestion via email to Jason’s outfit.

Below is that correspondence:

Wayne’s email question:

This is a suggestion more than question. Next, I really believe I will do well once I take the test. Thanks. Now, It’s hard to see Jason’s mouse pointer on these very important charts. May I suggest not doing this on a computer but use the same video camera used for Jason. Video tape a real chart and have Jason use a laser pointer, which should show up much better. Regards 🙂

RemotePilot101.com response:

Just made this fix in our most recent video and will in any future videos as well my friend

Thank you


Wow! In less than an hour I had received a response from Jason Schappert (MzeroA.com), my instructor.  Jason began flying at age 12, and did his first solo flight at 16 according to Wikipedia.com.  You’ve got to click that Wikipedia.com link and read more about this young man.

It was a pleasant surprise to get such direct response from the CEO of MzeroA Aero Club, Inc. Come to find out that’s Jason, my online instructor.

Some folks have faith in flags, countries, religious entities and all of that is well.  I have faith in people.

“Be advised that the back entry is now closed to traffic due to the scheduled improvements entering from Wilson Farm Rd. Please utilize the front entry for entering and exiting the community.”

The “back” entrance mentioned in a Home Owner Assoc. advisory was a contruction entrance.  It was to be used by heavy construction vehicles while our community is being built.  Most of the residents use it as a regular entrance.  We considered the community as having two entrances.

Well, I guess the State of Delaware agrees as the construction entrance is being changed into a regular entrance.  And I guess construction vehicles will be able to use it also.

Yes, I got to my with my drone:)

A Dime A Dozen

Dorine Losasso with prints she will show at the Sugar Beet Market in Heritage Shores starting December 10, 2016.  Dorine in a photographer and resident of my community.  She also is a member of  the Heritage Shores Shore Shots Camera Club and the Coastal Camera Club located in Lewes DE.  She has a great eye and is very talented.

Talented photographers, however, are a dime a dozen.  Dorine is more than just talented. She is also a very warm and genuine individual, a pleasure to know.

I took this picture to put on Facebook around the 8th or 9th of December.  It will serve a  reminder for my Facebook friends to go see her work.  If she reminds me, I will also send a copy to the local newspaper.

The image is being posted on my blog early because I need to publish.  Since March of 2007, I’ve published 2,288 blog posts.  Most pictures have been mine.

Sign The Petition?

Being a left-wing bleeding heart liberal such as myself, I get many petitions to sign.  Today, I received one which asks for the firing of Wells Fargo’s CEO John Stumpf.

Wells Fargo, California’s biggest bank, just got caught red-handed opening more than 2 million bank and credit card accounts in its customers’ names without their consent. In response, the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau fined the company $100 million.

Wells Fargo CEO John Stumpf personally got $200 million richer from this fraudulent practice, while the company’s value was inflated by billions of dollars.(1)

Since it was discovered, more than 5,000 low-level Wells Fargo employees were fired due to this fraud. But Stumpf, who literally made millions of dollars peddling the results of this fraud to investors, still has a job. That’s not accountability — it’s passing the buck.

The group which sent out the petition goes on to state “We’ve seen it time and time again: big banks have no incentive to change their behavior without meaningful consequences for blatantly illegal or unethical behavior. Stumpf needs to be fired immediately”.


CEO John Stumpf needs to be  put in jail. I’m sick and tired of these criminals stealing and being bailed out with corporate their money.  These folks need prison time.  That’s the only way to stop this. And it’s not going to happen anytime soon because they own the best democracy money can buy.

Jon Falk has friends who live in Calistoga, CA, and their idea of an Earth Quake Warning (EQW) device is this precariously erected stack of books. Any tremor and down it goes.
