2014 in review

The WordPress.com stats helper monkeys prepared a 2014 annual report for this blog.

Here’s an excerpt:

The concert hall at the Sydney Opera House holds 2,700 people. This blog was viewed about 20,000 times in 2014. If it were a concert at Sydney Opera House, it would take about 7 sold-out performances for that many people to see it.

Bogus Batoid at the High Museum of Art in Atlanta, Georgia

We had a great time this past Sunday with Bogus Batoid at the High Museum of Art in Atlanta. It was fun watching the faces of the people as we told them that Bogus Batoid  was a human-powered submarine.

Our next showing will be at Maker Faire Atlanta on the 4th and 5th of October in Decatur, Georgia. We will be bringing Bogus Batoid and/or Faux Fish or Sand Shark to the Faire.  See you there!  We hope you have an opportunity stop by and say hi.

Maker Faire Atlanta

I will be taking one or more of my subs to Maker Faire Atlanta October 4th and 5th. I haven’t decided which one or ones will go but will decide soon. I have to find all of the related parts for each since they were all mixed together in our move to Atlanta. My son Martin, who helped build and pedaled the subs in the International Submarine Races, will be with me to answer any questions.

I hope to see all y’all there.
