Wednesday I ws a guinea pig for science!
simultaneous motion capture and fluroscope of my foot walking (see the shiny dots? They have tantalum cores for the x-ray). They hope to be able to figure out gait issues more easily, eventually. My task was to walk at a normal pace and place part of my foot on a nigh-invisible X where the gadgets were aimed (half the time the ball of my foot, half the time just aft of the center of the sole), without stopping. This I did 7 out of 7 times, thanks to Boken exercise number 2, and thank you DiAnne Sensei, Philip Traunstein Sensei, and George Ledyard Sensei for that - your patient work contributed to science! !

Cyril Miller was honored at a celebration at VA Puget Sound Healthcare System on Tuesday.
This had been in the works for weeks, and making sure he got there involving carefully planning of a meeting that ... as luck would have it ... was scheduled by VA staff around the time of our weekly planning meetings. This lead to extra confusion.
However the surprise was complete. Cyril suspected nothing, even as we ran into Evan in the lobby (he smoothly said he had been told to have a look at the pool, and joined us in the meeting in the Director's Office)

Professor William McCloundy, the noted archeologist and world traveller, has recently deciphered inscriptions at the Great Pyramid in Giza, more than three thousand years old, that foretell the astonishing role of "The Dark-Skinned One With Large Ears" in unleashing "The Jade Helm Warrior" upon the People of the Lone Star. Most shocking of all is the role of the Mart with Walls.
Professor McCloundy became interested in archeology after making his fortune in construction finance. His second career appears to be destined to be as noteworthy as his first.
