Steven Ogg does such a great job as "Trevor" in GTAV. Who knew he was so much like his character in real life. =)

He should be getting a lot more good parts. Looking forward to it.

Would you make an investment if you could earn a 700% return? It's called "Head Start." You'd think conservatives would require and not shun it considering the savings.

Investing in children almost always pays off in lower costs as an adult. Thankfully I have a great Congressman that understands that very well. Awesome liberal. =)

+Tesla Motors and +Elon Musk : Go big or go home. =) And I'm glad they do because we need to start thinking really big in transportation.

I say pull the tax breaks from oil & coal and invest in renewables for a start. Imagine a big city with just electric cars. The sounds would be very different and for the better.

We can dream.

Teslas will build battery packs in their own factory. So what? This factory would be able to recondition and repurpose those batteries. In time battery packs that no longer have the ability to power a car will still make excellent and relatively cheap storage devices for Mr. Musk's other venture SolarCity. A serious advantage for them.

IMO a strong Tesla is good for America.

Rhode Island has >9% unemployment, $300m short this year and >$9b total (1) so it's no surprise their legislators are looking at the same thing. (2) IMO they could do $500m in tax revenue per year until Massachusetts woke up and did the same but, knowing Massachusetts, that could take years. Nevada didn't expand gaming for Nevadians, they expanded it for California.

BTW, well worth the trip. The mansions of Newport are a great example of the excesses of the Guilded Age. Still very quint in many places. Lots of original, offbeat establishments too.

Congress  - 
 
My Congressman and a proud Progressive.

My Congresscritter +Congressman Jim McGovern is a proud progressive. He studied under the great Joe Moakley and IMO has done his old boss proud. I've seen his work in childhood nutrition and it has to be commended. It has saved money over the long term and quality of life in the short.  As he would say:  "It's not pork. It's nourishment." =)

It's nice to be proud of my Congressman. If you have a similar Representative let's hear about. Sometimes it seems that I forget those that solider on and just think about the battle.

Annapolis Police Chief claims in testimony that 37 people died from marijuana overdoses in Colorado on January 1st.

"Annapolis Police Chief Michael A. Pristoop asserted that 37 people had died of marijuana overdoses on the first day of legalization in Colorado last month.

The claim drew groans from the packed hearing room. Sen. Jamie Raskin, a Montgomery County Democrat who sponsored the legalization bill, pointed out that Pristoop had fallen for a hoax that ran in the satirical publication the Daily Currant."

This is exactly why I did not stay in LE: people like this that are in charge. Thankfully the former head of training for the Baltimore PD and the Executive Director of LEAP +Neill Franklin reminded them off the facts and how the drugs wars have failed beyond any known failure of the past. The work Mr. Franklin does is invaluable and appreciated by many including me.

LEAP does good work by having LEOs remind other LEOs that's it's OK to admit the war on drugs is an absolute failure and it's not their fault for losing it. They never had a chance to win.

This is why I am also a member of LEAP. Check them or at http://leap.cc

Followup: Pristoop digs deeper and deeper. Something this good has to be fattening, =)

Another Kennedy, another trip behind the wheel, high as a kite. Keeping the family tradition alive. I remember when Patches' mom, Ethel, took out a couple hundred feet of chain link fence at Craigville Beach while drunk. Fun times.

While Patches loves to talk about the evils of marijuana he rarely talks about drink of pills, two things that have effected his entire family. America hates a hypocrite and Patrick Kennedy is one from the core out.

End this stupid and petty war against marijuana so we can get on to solving bigger things.

Introduction
Technical consultant and problem solver. Also conversions from anything to Chrome OS et al. I use a bunch of Chromebooks including a Pixel and pretty much no longer support other platforms. Life is too short. I'll work on anything else and fix it right but I really charge a lot. =) Fighting pT4N0M0, squamous cell carcinoma of the right mandible, and the after effects of treatment including CINP that thankfully pushed my expiration date a few years (or more) ahead. 

Post me any questions/problems and I'll help you out (no charge of course).

"You have to go out, you don't have to come back". Accept the fact that you will someday die, but you still have to go out no matter what. Knowledge of this will allow you to live a more fulfilling life. Nothing wakes you up in the morning like the threat of death. 

También recuerde: "La familia lo es todo y todos somos familia." - mí

In the end I have no complaints, have lived an interesting life and "I did not tell half of what I saw because no one would have believed me." - Marco Polo. Only if everyone would be so lucky.

Worcester is very lucky to have some great Vietnamese restaurants including Pho 54. Good food and good people that run it so well. Enjoy. Update: Back again and had the Pho Ga. Excellent flavor. Great for lunch (my favorite time) but I suspect Saturday they are very busy. Go and try for yourself.

Good, solid New England style pizza from a shop that does mad volume. This is a pizza place to get some take out before the game with the boys, not on a first date. Decor is functional but spare. Thankfully the food makes up for it. I've been buying Freshway's pizza since they opened. They work really hard on making a fresh and hot pizza. Delivers to most area colleges. Worth a take-out or delivery try. Prices are low.

I've bought my last three cars from Lundgren and they have serviced them exclusively. In the end you get what you pay for. Every repair they have done has been done correctly. They also have a great body shop. Buying a Honda from and having it serviced by Lundgren has never let me down. Yes, they have a nice waiting area but in the end what you want is to get a fair deal and that's what they offer.

He found my Stage 4 cancer and set up treatment at the Boston Medical Center that saved my life. Without him I would have most likely died. And he's a very nice guy. If I could say anything else to recommend Dr. Gill I would. He is a good and talented medical provider that you can trust your life to. That's what matters.
