Last night a bunch of us watched the lunar eclipse out in the yard. It started here at about 10 pm. I know for a lot of you it was at an inconvenient time. It was fun hanging out with everyone, and cool to see the orange moon. It got cloudy right after it became a total eclipse so we didn't need to stay up too late. Today I monitored the tropic birds again and Greg and I cut up some old fallen ironwoods by the cable houses that were kind of an eyesore. Someone will take the front end loader and clear them out. That's about it for today.
The moon at 10:00 pm.
11:00 pm. Sorry for the bad focus but you get the idea.
After high school I went into the Navy doing nuclear power stuff on a submarine. After 6 years, I left the Navy then got my biology degree from Montana State Univ. I then worked for the USDA doing human nutrition research for 8 years. I also got my Master's Degree in Biochemistry and Molecular Biology from the University of North Dakota. While doing that I worked for Mr. Ellie Pooh selling elephant dung paper (google it) to help the Sri Lanka elephants. After that, I did the only logical thing with my MS and moved to Cleveland, OH and got a job in security at the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame. It was great, for a while, but I found a 1 year temporary job at Midway Atoll with the US Fish & Wildlife Service. I loved it so much that I moved to an even smaller island with only 4-15 people (Tern Island). After being the Asst Manager, then the Manager, I got the chance to go back to Midway as the Wildlife Biologist for a few more years. Just so you know, I didn't write this as an employee, I just commented about my days here and put up some photos, so these aren't the views of the FWS. I still do ocean work for the FWS, but I do it from the Headquarters office in the Washington D.C. area.
