Not sure what kind of tree this is, but it smells great.

I know it as 'paper white,' or 'cigar tree'. Seem to like cemeteries.  They usually grow close to another variety of tree, as well.

Doing some Googling for fun. I find it interesting to see what is Popular now. There are even theories on how these show up differently for different people. Would love to know if you type these in, do you get the same results?

For all publishers on all technical subjects, physical book sales at the cash register have plummeted the during 2014 and 2015. You will notice that last year only one week surpassed the same week from the prior year. And this year, not one single week has been ahead of last year. This is a market still looking for bottom. The fortunate news for a few publishers is that direct and digital sales are off-setting the lose of print sales.

It's melting fast now. Near 45 degrees (f) today. This will go quickly because the whole week is suppose to have this wretched warm weather.

When I charge the Volt, the dog stays by and thinks she needs to protect the line.

We'll all do better, when we all do better.
What am I doing?
Trying to make sense of where technology can help us in all areas of our life.

Who I am?
My DNA: Maternal H6a1  Paternal E1b1b1a2* which means likely Northern African and Northern European mix similar to - Scandinavian & Moroccan  
Political affiliation:  un-enrolled, although I believe in social issues, but want less government involvement. I like libertarian ideals, but not the whack jobs involved with the party.

What would I like to figure out?
Global scale: How to make sure everyone can eat and drink to ensure normal human growth. 
Micro scale: The Peter-Pan syndrome--why do I have to get older? Hacking my way to a longer life, hopefully.

What I like to talk about?
I am hopefully not going to foist my opinions on you without at least qualifying why I have them. Likewise, if you want a change in my views, explain why with reason, not emotion. I can move a bit. Ad Hominem attacks just make me ornerier.  

Why add me to your Google+ circles?
It's up to you. I love to learn from new ideas and people. That is what is great about humans, we are all so different.
Bragging rights
Really enjoy what I do for a living, and love to work.
