Dear Car Key, Have I told you lately that I love you?
You look so charming in the ignition.
The passenger side window added a sense of mystique.
The four locked car doors woke me up that I have indeed not told you lately that I love you!
Car key my dear, you rank real high up in my world (of inanimate objects)!
Thanks to my epic awesome neighbour Shane who gallantly answered your call of help to deliver my wife's key!
My dear car key, you and I were speedily united in less than half and hour later!
Here is Rod's cover of "Have I Told You Lately That I Love You?" just for you, my dear car key!
P.S. This is my first and hopefully last time we separate like this! #WtfMe https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AQ4NAZPi2js

Small business owners: Go Walmart Go! in the battle with VISA re sky high fees! http://www.cbc.ca/news/business/walmart-visa-credit-card-payment-fees-1.3639473
Many small businesses are cheering on Walmart for taking on Visa in a public battle over credit card fees. Smaller merchants feel gouged by transaction fees and hope the public dispute will lead to change.

Thanks to reporter Kwan Chun Hoi (關震海) for taking time to be interviewed by me to set the records straight for this headlines grabbing story in Hong Kong. This scandalous news story was first broken by FactWire News Agency 傳真社 on June 9th. https://kempton.wordpress.com/2016/06/13/setting-facts-straight-in-tung-ah-pui-village-illegal-villas-investigation/
On June 9th, 2016, the scandalous story of “[Hong Kong] Villas occupied by former [HK gov] official and wealthy businessmen ‘built illegally’ on government land in prized Tai Tam area” …

Like +Kylie Flavell  and subscribe to her new personal YouTube channel! Yes, Kylie is hot and beautiful! BUT it will be shallow and untrue of me to say that I subscribe to her channel because she is pretty! She makes great shows, a good filmmaker, editor, producer and journalist! And she did almost everything in the field by herself! In fact, I first got to know Kylie because of a technical business case & a technical white paper! Some people buy Playboys for their articles. Well, I get to know a talented (and pretty) pro after reading a business case and a technical white paper! Like & Subscribe!

P.S. Kylie has made videos with millions of views with partnering companies but she is building her own personal channel now.

Jerry Seinfeld from his AMA (Ask Me Anything): "I don't do movies because I think generally the size of that content does not lend itself to great comedy; it lends itself to people saying, "Hey, I made a movie." To me, the funniest things are shorter, so I think TV series or comedians in cars, I think I have a better chance of making you laugh." https://www.reddit.com/r/IAmA/comments/4n5r3s/hi_im_jerry_seinfeld_and_welcome_to_my_third_ama/

Opponents of the IEX argued that the structure of the new exchange would add unnecessary new complexities to an already complex stock market.

Looking forward to meeting and learning from Mr. Richard Plepler, HBO Chairman & CEO, in a few hours. As co-president from 2007 to 2012, Richard was responsible for green-lighting of successful series including True Blood, Boardwalk Empire, The Newsroom and Game of Thrones, as well as first season Emmy® Award-winners Girls and Veep. If you can't make it to Banff this year, here are about two hours of video you can watch online. https://kempton.wordpress.com/2016/06/07/2-hours-of-richard-plepler-hbo-ceo-before-banff-visit/

Powerful story from B.C. Premier Christy Clark. //In particular Clark recalls one incident when she was attacked by a stranger while walking to work when she was 13 years old.
"It was a sunny day, and I was walking to work at my first job. A man suddenly jumped out, grabbed me and pulled me out of sight into a deep copse of shrubs.// http://www.cbc.ca/news/canada/british-columbia/christy-clark-sexual-assault-1.3623936
"I knew all too well why women stay silent. For over 35 years, I've been one of them," B.C. Premier Christy Clark writes about why she backed a private member's bill on sexual assault.

"It is up to us to adjust to our times. And the minute you think the past was better, your present is second hand, and yourself becomes vintage. Its ok for cloths. It is not that great for people." - Karl Lagerfeld https://youtu.be/sVqgqzTUBxY?t=34s

Introduction

For the ten years from 1991 - 2001, Kempton was involved in two of the largest safety & mission critical software projects in Canada: Canadian Automated Air Traffic System for Transport Canada, and then Iris Digital Communications System for the Canadian Department of National Defence.

For the ten years from 2001 - 2011, Kempton recharged his battery by getting an MBA, made a nationally archived feature-length documentary, and has been taking different paths in trying to be good in things that interested him.
