I was born 20 years late and missed the high point of steam trains. Good news! I may still be able to see this one run again. #Big Boy 4014

You were born EXACTLY when you were supposed to be,..just happens that it was 20 years after steam's hayday.
I was outside of Vegas one day years ago, while living there, and crossed some tracks out in the distant fringe of Craig road (all built-up now), while looking for a salvage yard for auto parts. BIG steamer crossed the road on the tracks (not a Big Boy), then hit the RPMS and went ZOOM!,..gone

A family member goes missing. Facial-recognition technology and the power of social media are harnessed to bring the victim home safely. Everybody eats a pork chop.

This is not an episode of Without a Trace.

It’s PiP, an app for finding lost pets.

Here’s how it works: Download the free iPhone app (Android coming soon) and register your cat or dog by snapping a few close-ups and paying the $1.50-a-month subscription fee. Then, should your pet ever go missing, you can activate PiP’s Amber Alert System, which informs local animal control, rescue agencies and social media outlets of his disappearance--meaning you don’t have to call 100 different places individually.

Simultaneously, any picture of a found pet that’s uploaded to PiP (either by an official agency or a Good Samaritan) will be analyzed using proprietary facial-recognition technology. If a probable match is identified for a pet that's been reported missing, the owner will be notified tout de suite.

Worried PiP might get confused and suggest the wrong French bulldog for your Bruiser? CEO Philip Rooyakkers maintains that the technology is 98 percent accurate and doesn’t falsely raise hopes. Plus, in the six weeks since its debut, the app has already brought home several lost animals.
