Having prayed for miracles now we just sit back and watch them happen.... Roscoe is resting under the watchful eye of his baby brother Tigger after being made to take his round of pills.

Hoping to see my baby boy healthy and smiling again. He was always so playful and mischievous.

This delightful little girl was scampering around the hotel at 7 this morning singing Let It Go at the top of her lungs. I found it hilarious, but not sure all of the other guests felt the same...

A great post from an age old friend.. thanks +Roger Abramson 
 
Good study in authoritative voice tone: You might have noticed the power pauses, humor. Did you notice the higher pitch, monotone (less variable pitch), and loud, confident volume? *
Unlike a stand up comedian, the professor of harsh reality is willing to interrupt an audience's laugh to make an important point.
Used the Houdini story to illustrate his point.
Uses an overhead projector. Like a professor.
It's flipped on briefly 

What you might see when watching it with the sound off:
The mustache creates a consistent and iconic look. 
Dan narrowly confines his above-the-waist gestures to communicate more precisely. You can much of his message with the sound turned off. Who is is, what he's about, and where he's coming from, and how much he cares about his message.
Walks slightly back and forth, but doesn't walk far. (He neither strays from his spot on the stage nor from his point.)
Keeps a clock on the table in plain view of the audience. Symbolic of a strict focus on time. Similar to the watch on the table technique, if you're familiar with it.
The red tie and vertical stripes are symbolic of power. The blue shirt is a good color for communicating trustworthiness. 
The suit itself highlights the seriousness and business-orientation of the message and the occasion.
The black background eliminates distraction.

My dog was diagnosed with liver and spleen lymphoma... the dog that is my avatar. He is my son and to say I love him is like saying I love breathing.

If you pray prayers are welcome. I am distraught and grief-stricken. Indeed I am swimming in it. I am doing what I can with herbal protocol and prayer. He is still recovering from his biopsy surgery but the docs say he only has 4 - 6 weeks left.

I am praying and believing for a full recovery. Yes, he is an older dog but I need him to be his old frisky self again.

Oh my beautiful boy where will I be without you? If you leave b4 your time it will be decades before I see your smile. Don't leave just yet. Stay strong my son.

Story
Tagline
Graffiti existentialist meets bebop/onedrop/hiphop lite pop metallist.
Introduction
Here from the very beginning of G+ Like almost day 1. Original hangout guy. 

Nerd/geek when it was painful, not chic. :-) I earned my position in nerddom.

What do I like/What circles should you put me in.

Econ/finance
Foodie
Permaculture/Fukuoka
folk harmony music
English Lit
East Asian Languages, BeginnerGerman/Swiss, Spanish
Math
Anime
Applied game theory
Building musical instruments, namely guitars and bagpipes

Religion: Ahhh here's a story. Simply put, I believe in the Gospel but I don't see myself as the typical televangelist type. To me being a Christian is more about feeding the poor, finding novel ways to house the homeless, educating children in math, science and literature, and protecting the environment and its animal and plant life; how this particular _mainline Protestant_ with and admiration for Catholic/Jesuit teachings can do my part to get that done.

I suspect I would be Catholic if it weren't for sola ecclesia/papal infallibility. Popes have been all too fallible as of late, though I really dug Pope John Paul II. I'd BE Anglican but unfortunately they have done some fairly non-biblical things. Consider me a C.S. Lewis type Anglican.. before all of the strangeness of the last 30 years!!

Google Plus is far too polemic.. too conservative or too liberal. I look for a middle way. Tolerance, but don't shove your issues in my face. I don't really ever want to hear about them. Hate one gender or the other? Don't circle me. _Hate_ one religion or another or all of them? Please don't circle me. I will offend you, and rather purposely too. :-))

I am a middle of the road Christian apologist. What does that mean?

That means I believe that the Bible is a spiritual book, not a science textbook. I believe the methods of writing in the bible are purposeful and have meaning. The Bible is literature as well as history and yes, spiritual tome.

It also means I don't discuss religion any longer with atheists in Hangouts. It was fun while it lasted, but I've said what I needed to say and now have moved on to other things. Cheers! BTW: If a person makes former speaker Nancy Pelosi seem conservative, then you have moved too far to the left. Likewise, if you make Rush Limbaugh seem like a rainbow flag waving, my little pony liberal....neither should circle me.

I will be doing a series of yootoob vids on various apologetic topics and am willing to debate, with a moderator or panel of judges in a venue about a predetermined topic.  

I'm a musician, future youtube video maker about a variety of topics. That's me in a nutshell.

Notice I've carefully avoided talking about what I actually do for a living. This is calculated. Google Plus is, sadly, broke. Lot of poor people on G+ So I try and avoid any conversations about money.

So sorry for the TL:DR writing. If you've made it this far you probably SHOULD circle me. You are likely patient, kind, and talented. I like THOSE kinds of people. 

Warmest Regards, 

Mycroft Holmes

PS: I am crazy about animals. Michael Vick and anyone else who dog fight/torture dogs need to die. Anyone who would torture a helpless animal for sport/profit is anathema to me, to God and all that is holy. Anyone caught doing this would get  particularly stiff sentence in most states. Rap stars and ball players, because they make too much money, get a different, more lenient type of justice. Anyone who supports this lifestyle in anyway deserves to go to _HELL_, sent there by hanging in the public square, Texas style!!! If you don't agree, pass on by. Don't circle me.
