I love the way the intensity inexorably builds.  The stick tricks ain't bad, either. Musical and entertaining.

Search engine updates  - 
 
Read an article this morning about the latest update for Google, code name Hummingbird. Anybody notice a difference lately?  From what I read, they are focusing the changes on content, specifically the ability to recognize natural speech or user intent.  

I label that as content anyway.  Google is getting better semantics.   They also are getting better at marketing the updates.  Nice graphic.

+Dennis Miedema   Your opinion seems to be the prevailing one from what I have been reading and I think it goes back to the idea sites are designed for the intended users and not really Google. Create a good site and events will take care of themselves, mostly.  Yes, there is a lot of opportunity there if people can understand that point.  Now we have to turn that into a sales pitch.

Story
Introduction
Guy Kawasake likes to say that Google+ is for passions.  Here is what I tend to get passionate about now.  First and foremost my lovely, wonderful wife Mary, cycling, the Houston Ballet, Rush (the band), The Rat Pack (all of that great music), hockey, baseball, craft beer (once you taste the good stuff, no going back, try as I once did), cooking (mostly the kind that will keep my blood glucose under control, which why I like to cycle), martinis (see Rat Pack)  and sewing.  Late in life I found I like to do things with my hands and sewing is a lot cleaner than wood working and tools fit better in a typical 1960's ranch house. 

Odd minglings, I grant you, but that's the great part of being an adult.

Beat type 2 diabetes. I am completely normal now and proud of it. Married the world's best wife.

****Update**** I did get a call from the manger there after posting this. He was apologetic and did want to make amends. We did work out that we would get a free oil change next time. Bravo to the manager for wanting to make things better. Shows that someone there does care about service. Do not take your car here. The service is awful and the employees are rude. I took my wife's car here for a simple oil change. She left for Dallas later that afternoon and as it turned out, they did not put in enough oil. She had to stop at a gas station/convenience store just north of Huntsville and add a couple of quarts of oil. It's lucky that the motor did not freeze up and that she knew how to handle adding oil to the motor, knowledge the employees here seem to lack. She proceeded on to Dallas without incident. I called the following day to complain and they refused to let me talk to the owner. I was told I have to talk to the General Manager and that he was not in and I could call back later. When I asked when he would be back, the rude employee just said he didn't know. Just keep calling, he said. Truly rotten, bad, lousy, miserable customer service. This place deserves to go out of business.
