Lazy Saturdays

I love lazy Saturdays. They aren't much different from normal days except that Ian's beside me and lazy, too. He plays video games while I surf the internet (and later, nap).

I love reading about disasters and Lately I've been looking at plane crashes. I might be wrong, but it seems that while there have been more plane crashes over the last few years, there have been fewer fatalities. Ten years ago the crashes resulted in almost complete fatalities but now people are getting away alive. That's a good thing. Clearly, investigations into earlier crashes have led to safety enhancements.

An airplane is definitely a very complex piece of equipment. There have been terrible crashes that come down to a piece of tape in the wrong place. If maintenance gets lazy, a problem and a crash would be almost inevitable. I'm so happy that I live in Canada where I can believe that the maintenance people are held to a high standard and do a good job.
