Scottsdale, Arizona

Now, back to the West coast trip. Peggy is having one of those biggie birthday years in a few days - turning 60 on 911. I know some people don't like to disclose their age but, she can brag about it because she looks younger than her years.

Anyway, we thought it would be nice to spend her birthday in Reno and, on the way we are attending the Singularity Summit on Artificial Intelligence in San Francisco. Lots of great speakers lined up to talk about a subject in which we are very interested.

Here is a photo of about 1/1000th of 1% of energy generating wind mills in West Texas. Pulled over and took this from IH 10.

We have decided we don't much like Scottsdale, AZ. Have you ever been to Sun City - this is a whole, major city that looks exactly like a Sun City. Everything is earth tones, there are no signs, and the small business names they allow on the side of the buildings are nearly the same color as the building itself. What a boring place! If these people saw South Austin they would think they were in the Twilight Zone.
