When it comes to dogs my views can be summed up by this incident this weekend... I am at the store and I need a USB-C cable.  They're $9.99.  I call my wife and tell her "I dunno, $10 for a cable, can you just bring the one we have downstate with you?" However, before I had left the store I bought a $9.99 "Super Premium" dog bone.   Priorities. Post your picture of your dog here. We have two dogs. First, the new puppy: This is an "English Creme" retr...
Turkey has over 200 with 36 connecting. Other cities in united states, and Canada have them.  I think it would be great for tourism.  It is working for other cities.  I'm trying to raise money. 
oOk i LOOKED up the nations of the world by size my list will devide them by fourths Wide, average, tall I mean small, and minor.The Average nation is over half the nations. This proves if tall nations can compete with wide nations. You got to understand a lot of countries are out there, and different people have different ideas what a country is. there are 257 countries on the first list. Some of these countries are territories of another country this list means that different people have a dif...

I am a bit of a board game nut, so I wanted to start a thread discussing some of my favorites. I want to know what you play, and why - the more games I get to try out, the happier I am! My shelves downstairs in the game room are starting to get a little crowded, haha. Some of my top favorites are: Victorian Masterminds, DC Deck Builder, Takenoko, Splendor, Azul, Century...the list could go on for pages, but I'll truncate it there. What are YOU playing?

When I'm not here [shock-horror...sometimes I'm not]... I'm a Race Official FIA/FIM [Formula 1 - MotoGP - SBK] . Here's me at Albert Park, Opening event of the 2019 F1 Calendar.  I'm the one in the jacket - each badge on it is a one year service badge.  There are 34 of them...I got the 35th 2 days later... This was actually my 40th Australian GrandPrix in a row, one of only 4 or 5 who have made it that far.

An update on me. Just got back from seeing my cancer doc. Mine is stage 3b adenocarcinoma. Non small cell lung cancer and I'm going to be treated systemically (I think that's what it's called) with Keytruda. My doctor says the markers needed are there, which is a good thing. However being that it is stage 3 it won't go away forever and I'll have to deal with it as is. I'm going to be getting a port installed (good choice of words?) beneath my right shoulder simply because it'll be easier than st...
I'm on an airplane right now.  I've been flying pretty regularly since I was 5 years old (parents got divorced and back then they could live in different states).  It's the flight experience where you can really see how much tech has changed.  More to the point, as Kurzweil has pointed out, tech is changing exponentially and it's gotten to the point where it's really hard to miss. On the way to the airport I was able to check in to my seat via the Delta app that put a not...

Well, since I am big into cleaning up the planets environment, I am curious if anyone else drives a Hybrid or Electric Vehicle? I had a 2012 Chevy Volt Premium but sold it and got myself a 2017 Chevy Bolt EV Premium with less than 4,000 miles on it. It was a GM Executive vehicle and now it's mine! Love it! I don't own anything now that runs on gas! Electric/Battery on everything!

I know I'm not as active as I once was but I'm lurking daily. It's crazy that the babiies of memebers when I started out here are now in high-school. Great products brought me here and great people kept me here. Many thanks to T-Man, _Andrew, Nickie, SexyMat, KarmaGirl, Nakor, and of course Frogboy for all they've done at the WinCustomize and Stardock forums.

A great man has passed and will be missed by all, RIP Stan Lee...    https://comicbook.com/comics/2018/11/12/stan-lee-obituary-dead-marvel/
One of the challenges I face in my role as the CEO of a company is that I always live in the future.  My job is to project things that will happen 1 year, 3 years, 5 years from now.  As a result, I tend to worry about things all the time. Andy Grove, the former CEO of Intel, wrote a book I highly recommend called Only the Paranoid Survive. It's been a boon and a curse to me because I have learned a lot from it but at the same time, it has resulted in me constantly focusing on the ...

Just watching CBS News, sadly Aretha Franklin, a true legend of music, The Queen of Soul, has passed away in Detroit at the age of 76. May she truly Rest in Peace.    
One of the less pleasant trends I've seen in social media is the lack of recognition that actions can have consequences.  It never ceases to amaze me to see grown adults behave in a beastly way and be shocked, shocked that their actions have resulted in consequences that were almost entirely predictable. One exercise that I think many people would benefit from would be to consider what someone else might do in return.  Rather than trying to guess what they might possibly do, consi...
