This is a club I've belonged to for the past 4 years.
41 members attended and several others participated via Zoom I purchased a raffle ticket while I was there. Guess it was a lucky ticket. My prize arrived today.

It might be small in size but certainly not small in it's ability to store an enormous amount of data, etc.
It's big enough to store all the stuff I now have on several USB Drives. 
Thanks to my friend Robert Vance for mailing it to me.

Hurry, Hurry, the end is almost here!

7-18-2016 Yes, it's real!

On my way home yesterday, this is what I passed twice:
The first encounter was on Interstate I35E outside of Dallas TX and later that afternoon,
I again saw and passed this monster truck on Interstate I40 outside of  Tucumcari, NM.
As you can see, I even received a friendly greeting from Larry, the driver of this truck.

Pokemon GO - To Go or Not to Go, that is the question ?

The Pokemon Go game seems to have taken over the world in less than a weekend.
It uses your phone’s GPS. It allows you, via your camera,  to capture Pokemon in the real world.
Due to an oversight by the apps developers, Pokemon Go is also able to capture all the private data linked to your Google account.
When you sign up, you are asked to provide your Google login and third party apps can use these credentials since the game places no restrictions on how this information can be used.
Is a game really worth having your information compromised and probably used in ways you may not like ?
Maybe you should think twice before installing and using this App.
Stay safe, be free. I hope this helps.
