If you'd like to follow me and you aren't in one of my "In Real Life" circles here are some topics that I will likely engage with you in:

The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints (Mormons)
Technology (specifically gadgets and new inventions)
Chromebooks
Android
Politics (I'm a conservative but don't let that stop you)
Social Media (specifically application of social media for professional reasons)
American Football - particularly the 49ers
Current Events
Tri-Cities Washington
Science
Business
Dr. Who
Sci-Fi
Writing

I'll adjust this post with additional topics in the future. If you add me to a circle with one of these themes let me know so I can do likewise. 

The power of circles is in the ability to manage the type of content you see in your feed. You will get the type of information that you'd like in your feed by telling me what you'd like to see. Likewise for when I follow someone. Have a great day. #nf

My oldest son says he invented a new dance. He calls it the seizure fish. What you're imagining in your head right now is pretty much what it looks like.

I learned a few things I wish I hadn't learned in this. They just make me mad. We live in a world when GPS can accurately place you within centimeters of your exact location but we can't collect real data on who has a job that wants a job. Ugh!!!
Get ready for another ride on the economic roller coaster. Last week, we got bad news about the economy when it was announced that the US gross domestic product barely rose in the first three month...

Sister Burton is helping me want to be my very best self. Without making me feel small or incompetent she's making me feel like I can be what is an awesome righteous man. #LDSConf #manliness

My grand daughters spent the weekend with grandma and grandpa.  We were sad to see them go, but it will be early to bed for us tonight.

We may add some accessories other than swings in time. We thought it could be used for an outdoor movie scene with a nice projector.

Story
Tagline
Social Media addict that refuses to join a 12 step.
Introduction
Certified Gold Geek. Father of 5(+1) and loving husband. Political animal leaning right but in a practical way. Blog, Facebook, Twitter, GetGlue, Empire Ave., Foursquare, and Google+. Aspiring social media professional. I'm a Mormon. 

If you're interested in circling me some circles that may make sense are:
  • Politics 
  • sports(NFL, MLB, College Football that's about it)
  • tech 
  • LDS 
  • Social Media 
  • Small Business/Entrepreneur 
  • Whovian

NOTE: Few of my posts will be public so don't base your circle choice on those posts. If you want me to circle you back it might be helpful to give me an idea what type of circle you should be in. 
Bragging rights
I'm an Eagle Scout and proud of it! Finally completed my Masters of Business Administration.

While the donuts are good they are not extraordinary. Frequently they are over cooked. The decor of the shop needed an update in the 50's and didn't get it. The service has never been poor, but it also has never been particularly good. In general they are a cultural icon in the Tri-Cities and certainly deserve kudo's for being so long lived, but as much as I enjoy donuts I wouldn't make a special trip for these donuts.

One of the most forward thinking financial institutions in the Tri-Cities. Local and reasonable. Good customer service.

I just like how bright and open feeling the store is and the products seem more inviting. I like the Richland Target better than the Kennewick one...but they're both good.
