Reminds me of the “thousand little cuts” story. The woman standing in front of us turned around to face me. “Are you the cheerleaders?” she beamed. I glanced at my all-girls robotics team with a look of disbelief. As their proud captain, I’ve spent…

Maybe one of these whales could make a cameo in a new movie! That book is timeless! (It's loooong, so might I suggest the excellent free Librivox audio version.)

How I spent my snow day in Atlanta. Georgia Tech students know how to have fun.

What else is Big Soda doing to quash consumer water consumption, and damage the First Lady's Drink Up campaign, that we have yet to discover?

If you haven't heard of Google Glass - the computer for your face - search YouTube now. For a fascinating insight into its creation, read this. (And if you want an autograph from the co-creator, I can walk down the hall and try and get one:))

"Life's but a walking shadow, a poor player
That struts and frets his hour upon the stage
And then is heard no more: it is a tale
Told by an idiot, full of sound and fury,
Signifying nothing."

Exceptional service is equal to food quality for me when eating out and Smoke Jack's exceeded expectations in both areas. The server knew the menu almost by heart and could help me explore options I'd otherwise not have considered. And he gave me background on how all the food was prepared. Very impressive. The food itself was super tasty, and the smoked/steamed vegetables were a welcome side dish. These weren't overcooked like at a Chili's, but done just right. I'm health conscious by nature so this meal was perfect for price, flavor and nutrition.

Crownscapes did a very good job on cutting the grass for a fair rate. But after a missed cut during the summer the HOA in our subdivision sent a letter warning they would assess a fine if it wasn't cut. I called Doug, the owner of Crownscapes, over the weekend and didn't here back that Monday. Wednesday rolled around and still no callback (after I left three messages telling Doug of the specifics). I at least needed to know if he could cut the grass, but I wasn't given any update, so I had to call someone else to do the grass before a fine was assessed. This took entirely too much time from my schedule to get the lawn maintenance set back up and I wish Crownscapes would have at least notified me what was going on.

Not a donut person, but I get a great egg and bagel here through the drive-thru. They open super early for commuters and even accommodate me with "scrambled egg in a cup" when I don't want the bagel! Try that at Starbucks!
