40 Years Ago Today

Photo Circa 1973-1974

40 years ago today, I married the really hot chick pictured above.

Still married. Still in love. Still hot.

As in Critical mass

Chicago Pile-1 (CP-1) was the world’s first artificial nuclear reactor. The construction of CP-1 was part of the Manhattan Project, and was carried out by the Metallurgical Laboratory at the University of Chicago. It was built under the west viewing stands of the original Stagg Field. The first man-made self-sustaining nuclear chain reaction was initiated in CP-1 on 2 December 1942, under the supervision of Enrico Fermi. Fermi described the apparatus as “a crude pile of black bricks and wooden timbers.” It was made of a large amount of graphite and uranium, with “control rods” of cadmium, indium, and silver, and unlike most subsequent reactors, it had no radiation shield or cooling system.

Happy Anniversary

Woo Hoo!

We’ve been together now for one full week. I honestly can’t believe that I have made it this long. It’s been tough, a lot tougher than you might think. I have a full time job, the one that pays the bills, and I have a lot of responsibilities at home that I won’t burden you with. I have a lot of respect for bloggers who can deliver high quality content on a daily basis.

Let’s face it. This is really a fluff piece. It’s filler. You know it and I know it. I am just posting this to be able to be able to say to myself, “Well you did it, you have a week of blogging under your belt. Congratulations.”

In fairness though, it hard to type around a “cat beard.”

Currently I am working on a longish essay titled Welcome to the Future. I hope to be able to post it by Thursday. I am also starting work on Day 44, which I am targeting for the weekend.

Be seeing you …
