Exploring the world with +Google Glass

Just recently, I met this gentleman in the wilds beyond the desert. He was so curious and interested in Glass. Absolutely transfixed, he asked me everything about it, then tried it on and played and played and played!  He loved it!  

First I had him go through the same demo I give everyone.  I have them say, "Okay Glass, Take a picture" — it understands pretty much every accent around the world as far as I can tell. This always makes people freak out with excitement when they see the photo they just took floating as a hologram in front of their eyes.  

Then he started using it more and more, going through all my emails, watching videos, seeing my text messages, asking Google questions, checking weather... I mean it just went on and on and on... and then he started showing all his friends and telling them about it — he was so excited.  Naturally, he was happy for me to take his photo while he was playing!

We ended up talking about a bunch of different things.  I even bought an old used knife from him, and he showed me how to stick the curved end of it into a camel's hump to get water in an emergency.  There's another part of the knife you use to seal up the little puncture wound.  Then we talked about mediation, the sealing of the four cardinal spiritual doors in the night before entering the tent, different cultures around the world, and well, about a dozen other things.  Anyway, it was great...

Congratulations! Beautiful...
 
We've loved #throughglass  proposals lately, but this one takes the (birthday) cake.

One of my favorite brunch places. Dutch baby is my favorite dish. Very kid friendly too. Hot chocolate is great. I love the freshly squeezed orange juice.

I've bought two road bikes (one for me and one for my wife) as well as a bike for my 5year old daughter. I've dealt with most of the staff and I think they are all friendly, knowledgeable and overall amazing. I love going to this store. Dave helped us pick the bike, spent a lot of time getting the adjustment ride for both my wife and I. Helped us through components etc... We both love our bikes and do a lot of riding on them. Amanda spent hours helping us pick all the gear, shoes, helmets, gloves, bibs etc... We got everything from here. I personally love the Sugoi gear they have, my wife prefers pearl izumi but they also have capo and a bunch of other stuff too. They've definitely gone above and beyond for me. I was recommended getting a patch set for my bike but I neglected it and always planned to come by and get it later. Naturally I had ridden about 30 miles when my back tire went flat. I called the store and Mike answered. He immediately drove 30mins to pick myself and the bike up to bring it to the store for repairs. That was definitely above and beyond, excellent service and I certainly would recommend this store highly to anyone else.

When I don't want the wait times of orenchi I go here. Love the sea salt ramen. Feel they cook the egg a bit too much but the ramen is quite good.

Decent ramen not as good as shalala or orenchi but OK. Fried chicken is good again not as good as orenchi.
