Today I am greeted by a banner across the top of the page informing me that the classic Google+ I am using will be replaced by the new Google+. I've tried the new Google+ and it sucks. Forcing users to a new, lesser interface will only serve to push us away. Don't do it Google!

Pictures taken 1/2/17 at Alki Beach in Seattle. Cold weather provides clear shots of the Olympics and Mt. Baker.

A little automotive eye-candy from a car show yesterday in Issaquah Washington. Probably the best "art" shot of the day.

Here is an entry for rusty Sunday
#rustysunday  +RustySunday
Picture taken at Alki Point in Seattle. No doubt the salt water from Puget Sound contributed to the rust.

Posting these because of the great old Cadillac engine. The camp car is very cool too. Photos taken a few years ago at an impromptu car show somewhere on Hood Canal Washington

Stuff you find in a box in storage. This is from the early 80s. Anyone with hands on technology back in those days will recognize it.

Spelling matters.
 
Ooops.
THE Large Hadron Collider is located underneath Cern, Switzerland but when the BBC reported it's earlier restart, it was right out a Carry On film.

The Christmas feast.  Not sure of the birds.  I'm told the blue one is a scrub jay.

Story
Introduction
I am a lifelong technology geek.  My life has seen the transition from vacuum tubes to transistors and then on to the integrated circuit.  As a kid I always had my head buried in an old radio cabinet or TV.  I remember when I got my first transistor radio.  I knew change was coming, just didn't realize how far reaching it would be.

My experiences as a child shaped a lifelong career associated with technology.  Jumping forward several decades I now live in the greater Seattle area and work in IT with a focus on data/process analysis and continuous improvement/operational excellence.

Whenever possible I like to escape the city and get into the woods.  This is an easy thing to do in the Pacific Northwest.  

I should also add that I have just started up with the guitar again.  As if I didn't have enough challenges in life.
