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

Chevrolet is adding a new system to its upcoming 2016 Impala and Malibu lines called Active Phone Cooling. This system will come with vehicles that are equipped with wireless charging, in an effort to ensure that phones stay cool and don't overheat.

#CONAN  Mono: Nearly 30 years after the original, Tom Cruise is going to star in the sequel to "Top Gun." Of course now that he’s over 50, Maverick no longer has "the need for speed," he has "the need to pee four times a night." MORE jokes @ teamcoco.com/jokes

We had a small miracle last night. Our one year old slept through the night. From about 9pm until just before 6am. This is a dramatic departure from her more recent trend of waking three to four times a night. We hope this one event is a the beginning of more sleep for sleepy parents.

+Ryan Bickmore I can't help much. It seems like her sleeping has come at roughly the same time that her interest and consumption of solid food increased. In fact the coincidence is too clear to be without merit. But we tried everything too. #6 has been toughest for us in so many ways.

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.
