I hope he finds the answer before it's too late! There is the symbol I discovered on Google Earth in the picture from cross plains texas.
It appears that my fate is sealed and on June 11th of this year I will die, or rather this shadow form of me will expire and be replaced by a new one. 

When that happens, my memories of everything that have happened since I was ‘reborn’ will be gone.  I will remember nothing since that day in the 13MAGNUS nest in Afghanistan (October 19th, 2010) when I was shot by militants.

In preparation for this upcoming ‘rebirth,’ I plan to create a journal containing critical information that I will need to know in my next incarnation. 

What do I need to record? 

My research indicates to me that my deep knowledge will remain: I will remember my childhood, my academic and military training, my entire life up until that moment when I was shot and killed. However all that I learned from that time on will be missing.  Fortunately, some of it is preserved in documents (Tom’s book for example) and in other materials collected and disseminated as part of the Niantic Project investigation.  I guess I have PA Chapeau to thank for that. 

The rest... I will have to record myself.  And I will have to do it quickly as I am still devoting time and energy to trying to escape this cycle of life and death.

Techcrunch is reporting Google has acquired Titan Aerospace, the drone startup that makes high-flying robots which Facebook had considered aquiring (Facebook ended up buying solar-powered drone maker Ascenta, a competitor of Titan).

Titan drones are capable of flying 3 years at an altitude of 65,000 feet making them a good support for the Google Loon Internet Balloon project.

Both Google and Facebook say they want to be able to provide affordable Internet to remote areas. Using drones as a way to support other methods, such as use of balloons and data compression software to reduce data transfer costs.

Love these keychains!

Pick up a bunch for your team and they make a great swag giveaway to keep on hand as a thank you to give to people who drive you to farms and events, or upgrade your portals, and at the same time help my friend +Max Meier, III fund his new wheelchair!

#ingresswear #ingress
Until I get around to putting the website up, I'll let the cat out of the bag, just for a peek...

So how many will I need for a new wheelchair?

Really, +Jeremy Ellwood? Wow, that's disheartening. I would have expected your community to back you. It might be (and I say might be because I'm only starting off) because it was more the local communities idea to do something to raise funds for me, and not something I brought up. The keychains were completely unexpected until I was surprised with them. I've been told (even though I'm involving myself anyway) to let others do the work, and don't get involved. Well... for mobility aids and assistive tech, you kinda have to, unless its something OSFM, out of a box. Heck, if I surpass the lofty goal of $6k, and I have change left from it all, expect to hear from me. I'm pretty sure I can wheel-and-deal on some equipment as well. I'll be in touch, you can count on it.

Thanks again, +Linda Besh! I'll certainly let you know when I have that sorted!

As many of you know My daughter +Christina Besh is competing for the title of Miss Michigan this June. The National platform for the Miss America Organization is the Children's Miracle Network Hospitals and each contestant has the opportunity to raise funds for this organization. She is raising $250 and would love your help! The deadline is May 1st!! Any little bit helps whether you can give $5, $10, or $100 has a huge impact and makes a difference. To help her reach her goal simply click the link and donate directly to CMN!

About Children's Miracle Network Hospitals
Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals® raises funds for 170 children’s hospitals across North America, which, in turn, use the money where it’s needed the most. When a donation is given it stays in the community, ensuring that every dollar is helping local kids. Since 1983, Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals has raised more than $4 billion, most of it $1 at a time. These donations have gone to support research and training, purchase equipment, and pay for uncompensated care, all in support of our mission to save and improve the lives of as many children as possible.

Anomaly dates on the back!!  Had a hard time fitting all the dates and places onto the 2013 shirt though!!  2014 could have new badges added as needed.

Had a fun weekend. Started with a beer tasting at +Jeff Hill and then we realized we had enough people to make a flash farm so at 1am we took off to make a flash farm.
I then drove out to Muskegon where I got hit with a fierce spring storm. Trees on houses, downed wires, and extensive power outages made my day especially difficult to get through...much thanks to my eye in the sky +Tris Lashmar in the Faroe Islands for helping me navigate through light less intersections!

Next was Frederick Meijer Gardens in Grand Rapids, mi a huge flash farm and we had so much fun +Curtis Skeels +Shawn Mosher +Ginger Stowe+William Willemstyn among the players building a massive farm (not sure on count ...but I'm at cap and that's all that matters, lol).

I couldn't get my mobile to put the pictures in order, but here they are! Fun #ingress weekend!

Great to hear! It was only my third time going. A lot different in spring than the dead of winter like last time I went.
