I have gotten away from the blog, sorry Mom. I am finding facebook and twitter more immediate, and I tend to have to repeat myself here. I do like the blog best as a repository though, so I will keep flogging away at it.
|Sheila has settled in quite well, so it wasn't an issue for me to leave her and travel to a conference|
|Sunset over the bowls club, Rockhampton, Queensland|
|A difficult city to find vegetables in. They are there, but small, and hiding under meat.|
|The conference was very good, I got my presentations out of the way on day 1 and had the rest to enjoy. The best part was getting outdoors to see UAVs ( toy planes in the olden days) being used to capture large scale imagery.|
|ready to take off, all pre-programmed to fly transects to cover the field|
|Real time tracking and all done in about 15 minutes|
The applications for this technology are many, it is a potential growth area. It was all very impressive and it shouldn't be hard to convince young men they want to do this for a living!!
|I may have played hooky over lunch to go shopping.|
|We had time to kill at the end when all us northerners had to wait for a flight, so we went to the zoo/botanic garden|
|obligatory koala photo|
|I came home to find myself mildly on the outer... but that seems to have passed. Must do a fashion shoot of doggy jammies soon...|
