Taken a look at House Resolution 3598 lately? Enter “HR3598” in the search box and read on:
It is the obligation of every male citizen of the United States, and every other male person residing in the United States, who is between the ages of 18 and 22 to receive basic military training and education as a member of the armed forces unless the citizen or person is exempted under the provisions of this Act.
Millions of people worldwide are affected by cancer, diabetes and other diseases. You don’t have to be a scientist to help find a cure.
The Intel Philanthropic Peer-to-Peer Program combats life-threatening illnesses by linking millions of PCs like yours into one of the most powerful computing resources in the world. This “virtual supercomputer” uses peer-to-peer technology to make unprecedented amounts of processing power available to medical researchers, thus accelerating the development of treatments and drugs with the potential to cure diseases.
You can take part in this ground-breaking Internet-based project by lending your PC’s unused resources to the greater good. There’s no cost to download and run the program, and no noticeable impact on your computer’s performance, because the medical research programs take advantage only of processing power you’re not using.

This is one of my favorite parts of the path I walk on around the airport… lots of shade trees, and low traffic in the morning, and it feels very peaceful. Sort of funny are the miniature roadsigns. I was (still am, to a lesser degree) in a silly mood, and had a nice meander around the air-park. There were a couple roller-mommies out there today. ladies on rollerblades, pushing strollers on bike-tire tripods for the kiddies to cruise in. Thos things are neat! I hope to get a picture of one soon. (they move at a good clip compared to my speed-walking… easier to see them coming… hard to stop one and ask permission though. I didn’t feel too bad aobut taking the guy’s picture below as it was a parting shot and not really the focal point. I’m going to have to start remembering sunglasses and the ball-cap for walkies again… the sun was strong today.
Work today is being a chore. Fortunately Dexter the puppy is here to make things more fun… pic of him when I get home. Duty calls, I have to make this Broward county data filter by 5. nothing like waiting until the last minute.
Wanna see? Cut to spare friend lists
