I did a manual download of Windows 8.1 update, and I like the new features. It is now more desktop/laptop/no touch screen friendly.

Thanks for the invitation. My main research interest at the moment is my Hunt ancestry in North Carolina and before. I am also webmaster for our county genealogical society and newsletter editor.

I am so happy to have lived in a part of Carl Sagan's lifetime. Scientist, essayist, poet. What he spoke will resonate through the ages.

The Pale Blue Dot by Carl Sagan

This is one of the best speeches ever given. It speaks to importance of understanding, communication, and tolerance, and how important it is that we work towards cross cultural understanding, scientific knowledge, and peace. If you like it and its message, reshare. 



Edit: I posted this before the recent shooting at the #Sikh  temple in Wisconsin today- it was sheer coincidence, but it highlights the point.

"Think of the endless cruelties visited by the inhabitants of one corner of this pixel on the scarcely distinguishable inhabitants of some other corner. How frequent their misunderstandings, how eager they are to kill one another, how fervent their hatreds. Our posturings, our imagined self-importance, the delusion that we have some privileged position in the universe, are challenged by this point of pale light."

Go for following our passions and go for being a railfan. That's a winner combination.
