The email from the #localguides program this week told me I have 45 million views. I am averaging 600k view a week now. Anyone can post to Google Maps. When you do a search in maps you can add a pic when you look at more details about that location. I focus on 360 pics, but you can post normal pics too. see my pics --> https://goo.gl/E1fNzc

Here is what I do in my spare time... I thought it would be fun to turn a circular scrub brush into a power tool accessory. It did a really good job on cleaning grout. This will be handy on other cleaning projects.

Love me some waving cats! The first one I saw in a store was creepy (they use these to catch your attention). I saw this cluster for sale in hong Kong and thought I needed a little memory souvenir of it.

Last night I met my match.  Chengdu is the land of fire.  I love eating jalapeños and other spicy foods.  I figured I could handle the spice level here.  I was wrong.  

We experienced a type of food called hot pots.  Basically you have a table that has a heating source that boils a container of broth and spices.  You put meat and vegetables into the liquid to cook it.  When you think the food is done you pull out what you want with chopsticks and eat it.

When I first entered the restaurant, I realized the food would be spicy because you could feel it in the air.  As we sat around our table, several of us were coughing because of the spicy liquids brewing in the middle of the table.

On our table we had a pot with a smaller pot in the middle.  The pot in the center was a safe zone without the heavy spices.

Our server put some food into the hot section of the liquids.  Nobody else was planning on eating food from the spicy section.  So I decided I would just deal with a burning mouth and not worry about it.

While eating my lips were on fire, my eyes were watering, my sinuses were draining.  After eating a few items I started to feel full.  I didn't realize what was going on till I got home.   The spice levels had inflamed my insides.  My shirt was tight on me.  When I laid down in bed I could not lay on my stomach to sleep because it was too big.  

My stomach is a bit tender today.  I am looking forward to the next part of the digestion process…

Other communities have meetups.  It is one of the things that Google is trying to promote for each community.  What have other groups done and would there be of some value for any of us to get together for a meetup?  Scott Nebeker suggested going to stuff like the "Utah VR Meetup" https://msevents.microsoft.com/CUI/EventDetail.aspx?EventID=1032762582&Culture=en-US&community=0

The purpose of this map is to show ourselves and others what there is to see in the SLC area and in other locations in our state.  The point is to become a local tourist in our own city and state.  If you want to help contribute to this map let me know and I will add you as an editor to the map.  

Thanks for everyone who contributed ideas and gave me some KML files to improve this map.  This is a new map from the other post I made the other day for community contribution.
