I’m always tempted to do this. But, I’m too self-conscious. Or, maybe, it’s because I wonder if I would do it because others have- and not because it’s something deep within me.
Today we recognize the abundance afforded us. Of course, many of us have still not recovered from the Great Recession (yeah, like the whole Middle Class). But, being the optimistic people we are, we are still bound and determined to celebrate Thanksgiving. Many of us are also bound and determined to wait on line for interminable duration just to score that one sale item.
A computer game is about to become an important medical research tool. Because all of you who play its games (I never found the time to join in), have provided massive data that can be mined to determine some pretty important facts. The game site? Lumosity.com. You know, the game that trains your brain. (To do what, I might ask?)
I’ve been remiss keeping you apprised of the developments in 3D Printing. As, I wrote last Wednesday, when I reported about the pop-up shop in Baltimore. And, as I repeatedly have said, 3D printing (aka additive manufacturing) is going to change what and how we do things.

Dear Occasional Client*:
I know you just love getting these monthly notes from me. But, we really do want you to pay the lowest amount of taxes legally required- and to grow your business.

Today is Thanksgiving. A holiday to remind us that our harvest has sustained us. Analogous to the holiday of Sukot, which was closer in time to the secular Thanksgiving before the date was moved. (It IS celebrated on the second Monday of October in Canada, which is mighty close to the actual date of Sukot.)
Don’t you just love science fiction? Because the best science fiction involves conjecture of the world as it could be. I remember being mesmerized by Tom Swift, Jr., as a young boy. Other than the delusion perpetrated that Victor Appleton II wrote the series (instead of Harriet Stratemeyer Adams), they were wonderful books. (I only read the first 16; then I graduated to Robert Heinlein.)
