Salsa Dancing at Casa Toro In Coopersburg, Pa

Last night (Friday), was dancing at Casa Toro in Coopersburg, Pa. Casa Toro is a Mexican restaurant in the King's shopping center right off of 309. On Fridays around 9pm, the tables are cleared out of the way and the center of the restaurant becomes a dance floor, complete with instructors. We did a bunch of dance styles, like salsa, merengue, and a crazy type of line dance.

The food is pretty tasty as well. A helpful tip is not to try to eat the corn husk the tamales are wrapped in. Despite my attempts, it's just not chewable. That's just what it's cooked in:-P It's probably edible, but you'll never get it to tear to swallow it (feel free to prove me wrong).

BEAM bots with complex behaviors

BEAM bots with complex behaviors. BEAM stands for "Biology, Electronics, Aesthetics, and Mechanics. This is a term that refers to a style of robotics that primarily uses simple analog circuits instead of a microprocessor in order to produce an unusually simple design (in comparison to traditional mobile robots) that trades flexibility for robustness and efficiency in performing the task for which it was designed. Exceptions to the convention of using only analog electronics do exist and these are often colloquially referred to as "mutants"." To read more, here is the BEAM Robotics Wikipedia article.

Website Updates

My company page at AoG Design has been redesigned, let me know what you think.

I'm also helping out a little bit with Arlington Cemetery in Drexel Hill now, although more on the optimizing end rather than the designing end. Either way, things seem to be going fairly well. If you know anyone that needs a website or wants their site optimized for search engines, let me know:)
