One night last week, the topic came up here at work of who is the female vocalist in Meatloaf's Paradise by the Dashboard Light (Ellen Foley).

Flash forward to tonight. I work in a large data center, and it's quite noisy in there. I work with a group of people, but because it's so hard to hear each other in there, there's not a lot of talking that goes on. Fortunately, we all work well together and each of us knows what the others are doing, so there just isn't a need for a lot of communication. I hate to say we're a well-oiled machine, but things generally go pretty smoothly. Because it's so difficult to communicate in there anyway, most of us wear headphones and listen to music while we're working. Tonight, Paradise came up in my rotation and by the time it finished, I was like "You know, I wouldn't mind hearing that again" so I repeated it. And again. And again after that.

I don't know why, but I must have listened to that song 12 times in a row as I was working. It's a real toe-tapper and it made the first part of the night go by pretty quickly. I caught some of my coworkers looking at me funny as I was walking down the rows, bobbing my head and singing along. It was awesome.

I think I'll listen to it a couple of more times when we get back to work after lunch, then let Google Music get on with whatever else it thinks I should be listening to.

Snakes don’t kill by suffocation
In 1994, a rogue herpetologist challenged the dogma that constricting snakes kill by suffocation. He didn’t think it made sense. If suffocation were the mechanism, the prey would have died much more slowly —minutes rather than seconds. Instead, he thought the immense pressure from the snake’s contorted body sent its prey into cardiac arrest. It has taken 20 years, but researchers have finally proved him right.

Google+ Photos shutting down August 1 to make way for Google Photos

"If you’ve been using Google Photos in lieu of Google Plus Photos, you’re probably not alone. Today, Google announced it will begin shutting down Google Plus Photos on August 1.

The shutdown will hit Android first, then iOS and the Web “soon thereafter.” Google also notes users have been seeing prompts in Plus to switch to the new Google Photos service, so many have likely migrated or are using both.

This isn’t much of a surprise, though. At a small event after Google I/O this year, Google’s Vice President of Products Bradley Horowitz said its social arm was going through a “renaissance in thinking of what Plus is and for.” For Horowitz, Plus should be about connecting people with similar interests together, not a catch-all social service.

Google says those still using Google Plus Photos should download the Google Photos app soon “for uninterrupted access to all your photos, videos and albums.” If you fail to switch ahead of August 1, Google says you can find your photos and videos at its photos portal, and they’ll be available for export using Google Takeout."

The house across the street was on the market for only a week, and someone has moved in already.

Ever since then, the place has been a hive of activity. Landscapers, painters, garage door installers, trucks coming and going delivering things and taking things away. It's been nonstop from sunup to sundown for several days now.

It's almost embarrassing. They've done more to that place in a few days than I've done to mine in four years.

It is looking nice, though.

Well. Get to it. I'd suggest pretending you're going to move. It's amazing how much stuff you upgrade/fix when you're going to move.

Rotate for best reception!
I like old radios, old office equipment, and old people.

Old radios - Pre-war antique radios and record players from the late 1920's through the mid-1940's, although I'll dabble outside this range occasionally. I enjoy repairing and restoring such things, and shoot a lot of YouTube video while I do it. 

Old office equipment - Mostly old-school electronic calculators from the 1960's and 1970's.
Old people - Genealogy. I can't devote as much time to it as I would like, and I haven't done any original research. I mostly just collect and compile data already gathered by others. Maybe some day I can spend more time on it. I would really like to.

Food was good but nothing special. Just like every other Chinese buffet in town. Next time I'll go to a different one closer to my house and get the same food. Service was good.
