Pano of "The Chair of Philip II (with a  pre-Roman source).  Near San Lorenzo de El Escorial Spain.  Great hike and wonderful time around town and at the Monastery.  https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/San_Lorenzo_de_El_Escorial

Be the change you want to see .... Indiegogo

Excellent netcast on Twit / Trianulation with host Leo Laporte as he welcomes Danae Ringelmann the co-founder of the crowdfunding platform Indiegogo.  Very impressive business model that has worked. She speaks about the early days of Indiegogo, the influence of her parents and their self employment challenges and how Indiegogo was able to grow.  Well worth the watch!  Also of interest: Indiegogo started about 2 years prior to Kickstarter.

Question:  Did Gandhi really say:  "Be the change you want to see in the world".  Love the quote but I can't seem to find a validated quote.

Q: Why do I hate Las Vegas just a little less today?

A: Matt Crump's great article (and images) via Medium ( https://medium.com/).

Matt visits the Neon Museum in Las Vegas— the only institution in the world dedicated to salvaging iconic examples of the genre. Catch his images and article here: https://medium.com/gone/lost-in-amazement-at-the-neon-relics-of-las-vegas-2dcbc372aa36

Worth the look.

Breaking in our new travel shoes.

Fun Sunday .... After looking at and selecting but not reserving 3 Jacob Sheep [ http://goo.gl/jE3v6Z ] we headed to John Day Fossil Beds to hike the Blue Basin Trail. We need some time to seriously think about sheep ownership. Great day hike ending in a swim in the John Day river. After the "refreshing" dip we headed to a favorite frame shop in Michelle, Oregon. [ https://goo.gl/photos/7Pw62MEZWdVDxgK68 ]

Warning -- Don't do this hike in August without plenty of water and a great hat!

Read more about the trail here: "The Blue Basin Overlook Trail is one of the most colorful spots in Central Oregon. Seriously. It’s blue. Managed by the National Park Service, Blue Basin Overlook Trail is part of the John Day Fossil Beds – Sheep Rock Unit. This 3-mile loop trail is strenuous in spots, hot in the summer and beautiful to behold. Dogs are meant to be kept on leashes for this hike, and packing water and a poop bag is recommended." .....

More about Jacob Sheep: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jacob_sheep -- Yep we are silly to become sheep herders .... oh boy! ... actually, 3 ewes.

When great customer service is "over the top."  Or is it SPOT ON? 

Routine: Monday morning drive to the design studio to work (and play) with a stop at Target to pick up the weekly allotment of yogurt, strawberries and protein bars. If you have ever been in a Target store around 8am then you know that they have 20+ employees restocking the shelves from the busy weekend trade. Each week I play the game of how many eager and smiling employees ask me one of the many questions: Can I help you? Did you find everything? Let me know if you need assistance. etc. I know they are just doing their job and most if not all are genuine in their offer to help. It just gets a little old.

Over the last couple Mondays I just looked down at the floor and try to avoid the interaction. Today, I changed it up and decide to have a fun time with it. I slowly walked the 100-200 feet from the cash register area to the fresh vegetable section and was greeted by no less than 8 Targeteers. All dressed in khaki pants and red shirts, smiling with offers to help and my reply was simply -- "Thanks but I think I have it -- just looking for strawberries." I arrive in the strawberries section and they have none, zero, zip, nada. The shelf was empty. I turn to the produce guy that I see every week and we exchange a glance.

What do you think I expected to come out of his mouths?

Nope -- Wrong.

He says to me ... "Nice to see you again this week. I have the strawberries over on the pallet. What size do you want? the two or four pound box?"

Spot on! #target

Wonder how much the toll is to Sausalito?  Smart deer.  Beats the heck out of going all the way around the bay.
