Round Peg in a Square Hole

A repository of reference material on a variety of subjects

Friday, August 18, 2006


This will be a repository of reference material on various subjects, for my own use and that of others.

"Samantha-safe recipes": My daughter Samantha has galactosemia, a genetic condition in which she cannot metabolize the milk sugar galactose. This section contains links, lists of allowable ingredients, and recipes with appropriate substitutions, as a reference for those who may have to feed Sam.

"Sewing/crafting articles/hints": This is a collection of articles I have written describing various techniques, along with directions and/or patterns that I have designed in various crafts: sewing, knitting, and counted cross stitch, in particular.

"My Day Job": I am an engineer at NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory in Pasadena, California. Currently, I am a Sequencer on the Cassini mission to Saturn.

"Mars Pathfinder journals": My favorite mission so far has been the Mars Pathfinder project, the first Martian rover. I worked on it from around '94 until end of mission, which was fall of 97/spring 98 (these things get fuzzy, after a while). During that time, I wrote journal articles, primitive blog entries really, that were aimed at middle-school students, girls in particular, about what it was like to be working on Pathfinder, but also about what was going on in my life at the time.
