You Communicate Through This…

Imagine a world where these cell towers weren’t even thought of yet, a landscape devoid of them. A world without that handy little device stuffed in your pocket, purse or fanny pack. A world where you can’t instantly chat with friends across the globe.

These towers are of course just one piece of our connected world, other links such as the thousands of miles of Trans-Atlantic cables crossing many oceans laid upon the ocean floor, and satellite communications of course.

They are all just one link in a chain that crosses hundreds of thousands of miles. Next time you see one of these towers, consider the complexity of the technology you use each day and how wonderful it is, yet for all of it’s power, it is rather fragile. Just like when your phone screen cracks!

Fire Truck Painting

I had my home sprayed for bugs again today as I was in the kitchen a couple days ago at the sink, out the corner of my eye I saw movement. Oh, hello Mr. Scorpion! Man that pissed me off so off comes my right house shoe and Bamo! I made a pancake out of a scorpion instantly!

How the 1.5 or 2.0 inch bastard got inside the house I dunno but the entire property has been sprayed inside and out. Again! That’s basically my day today, waiting about the house for three hours, then the employee missed his three hour window. Really? I do have other things to do!

Later I headed out for a joy ride, such a beautiful day today in spite of the threatening skies. Tonopah, NV had thunderstorms and flash flooding early today. Tonopah is way north of Las Vegas. Anyway, driving about I passed this neat painting on the wall of a school so I swung about into the parking lot for the photo. I had to crop the hell out of this image to get the school’s name out of the frame.

A tip of my hat to the artist!
