Reason to Get Up. 2/7/2014
I should name this group of articles: In Search of Titles! The last one was
While I always have more to say than most people chose to listen to, new
topic, not already covered, sometimes seem scarce. I know that is
probably not true just my unwillingness to expand out and do the leg
work for a new great article!
So today, I went back to my favorite coffee shop, the one with the big

I told him I was happy there were engineers who could use the
mathematics. It was a bit of a joke as math has to be translated from

So what kind of world do you want to grow up in? Hitler is in office
again...no that's obama. Same difference! We have an insane world.
Only by working together now before we fall apart, can we make a
difference. I challenge you! You're still powerful and knowledgeable.
