Looks like you are having a fun time and haven't hurt yourself. So, so far so good!

A long walk around London today. I saw St. Paul's Cathedral, the London Museum, Sir John Soame's museum, the National Gallery, and the Transport Museum. After all that culture and walking I was wiped out and came back to the hotel and watched silly videos on YouTube.

These are fascinating images.  We use image recognition systems a lot in Google - these are the dreams or hallucinations of an artificial intelligence trained to recognize specific things.

At last it is revealed!  I've come to like the new logo, although my first reaction was pretty negative.

This is a good read.  If you're a programmer, share it with your non-programmer friends.  Some of the animations are excellent.

The world belongs to people who code. Those who don’t understand will be left behind.

Born in California, but grew up in Penticton, BC, Canada.  Claire and I were married about 10 years ago, and have lived in the Seattle area since then, except for two years in Zurich, Switzerland. 

I studied Computer Science at the University of Victoria. I moved to the Seattle area in 2000, worked for several companies, and then Google since 2007.   I'm a founding member of Sustainable Kirkland, and a member of Mars Hill Church in Seattle.

Not as crowded as the main market, has amazing baked goods, omelets and other breakfast options.

My wife and I ate here on a Friday night when we were too tired to leave Magnolia and struggle with parking. Our expectations were moderate. We were surprised by how good it was! The curry fritters were delicious, with a great sauce. The Moroccan kebabs were done very nicely, and had some unusual spice, we think sumac? I played it safe with a burger, which was simple, good, and very satisfying. I substituted salad for the fries and was particularly impressed... that salad was great, with a nice dressing, raspberries, crisp shredded veggies. Definitely not a typical boring mass produced "side salad" box, this one had some thought behind it and care taken. We will be back soon, and next time we'll try some seafood specials.

Exceptional service, very friendly! The food was very good, prices are fair. We had lettuce wraps, red curry chicken, Kra Prow with shrimp, a noodle salad and roti canai bread. It was all good, all four of us had different favorites. We will be back to explore the menu further!

We had a great dinner here. The food was really good, although portions were a bit small. I would suggest getting appetizers as well as a main course if you're looking for a substantial meal. Our server recommended a couple of wines and provided tastes, and we ended up with an excellent choice. Most of the wines are from the Pacific Northwest. Seated by the open kitchen, we enjoyed watching the chefs work. I had been concerned that sitting by the open kitchen would be too noisy for conversation, but it wasn't a problem. We will be back!

Hansen was recommended to us by friends, and we were very satisfied. They moved us quickly and efficiently without damaging anything, and were well organized. I would recommend them.

Honestly good beer and food. Real beer, too, not just the usual pathetic, mass-produced pilsners that are sadly so common in Switzerland. And there's a view!
