My management Kung Fu is strong. How strong you may ask. Well Green Belt Six Sigma strong. HAHAHAHAHA

I have been working on my certifications on line for the various levels of Six Sigma. Not a bad course. I always say face to face training is better but I had no other alternative. Luckily my wife is very good at the Six Sigma precesses. What I don't get online I get from her. Her management Kung Fu is top notch.

If you too want to check out what six sigma can do for you go to

The sand is sure blowing around this morning. Visibility is almost nil. The best part of this is that almost no one is on the road making for a calm and easy drive in to the office.

Just a few short months till we meet the in laws for our much needed rest in Europe.

The video attached here is of a demo shot we performed on a couple submunitions. Another day another dinar. Of course the normal saying is another day another dollar but the dinar is so much stranger right now. Exchange rate is currently at 1 Kuwait Dinar (KD) = 3.77 USD.

Ok so I have a bit of a side job right now that has potential. I deal in bombjammers, counter surveillance and surveillance technologies. One of the really cool items we represent is the microdrone UAV. The UAV is small and easily flown with as little as a day of training. It can fly via waypoints or by the guidance of the operator using video goggles. The system is used worldwide right now by videographers and aerial photographers. The police in Germany are using it to fly over brawls after football matches to help identify the hooligans and later bring them to justice. To learn more visit:
We have gotten almost no rain this year at all. This means the summer will be very very dusty. We are already seeing the difference from last year. This week temps should go to 40 degrees Celsius.

Not a whole lot new going on here. I have my Yellow Belt and am starting on my Green Belt in Six Sigma. Heather is still putting in time working on her degree program as well as writing her book.

To kill time when I get bored I go online and price Porsches for when we move back to the states. I so love driving them.

Just a picture of me at the SOFEX (Special operations Forces Expo) in Amman, Jordan.
Well the softball tourney went well. In that I mean we drank quite a few bottles of wine and cans of beer. I think we came in at 4th out of 8 teams. Not too shaby. Over the course of 3 days we played something like 7 games. Three of which were seeding games the others were tourney games.

For those of you who have not heard of or seen Dubai all I have to say is wholly crap. The whole city is gorgeous. Skyscrapers everywhere and not standard looking ones either. They all are works of art. And now they have the tallest building in the world which is still growing higher and higher in The Burj. They also have lots of islands being built some in the shape of the world and others in the shape of plam trees. Take a look on google and see what they have going on under images. Also they are building the worlds largest theme park supposedly when finished in 5 or so years will be bigger than Disney Land and World combined and have an entire indoor mountain for skiing.
