MiLB teams in Google My Maps

Just thought I'd share a small project I've been working on bit by bit over the past several days. This all started while I was working on a Minor adventure I hope to do this coming summer. You'll notice I capitalized "minor" - that is a clue that it involves Minor League Baseball. The plan is to take in the Carolina League's North division over the course of several consecutive days. The tentative plan is to invite MINI folks along for the ride, so I've been trying to work on some twisty routes between stadiums.

Last weekend I discovered that most of the teams had posted game times for the upcoming season. While working on the schedule it turned out one of the teams is holding a day game, which would leave the evening free. Can't have that, so I started searching and found another MiLB team in the area had an evening game the same day, so I squeezed that into my plans. That did get me to wondering about having a map available of all MiLB teams.

2015 Bible Reading Plan

The Sportsman's Bible HCSB - camo cover
The start of a new year approaching can only mean it is also time for a new Bible reading cycle to start for many people, myself included. I suppose it is good timing since I just finished up my latest reading of the New Testament. As I seem to do, I took a look around the Internet to see if I could find a different spin on Bible reading plans. That Discoverer nature coming through I suppose.

Probably the most promising one I found was from the Downtown Cornerstone Church in Seattle. It is not keyed to specific months, so you can really start it any time. I also liked the fact that it included "rest" periods each month with only 25 days scheduled. The other days could be used for catching up if needed or perhaps some additional study. This particular reading plan was a merger of the M'Cheyne Bible Reading and Navigator Bible Reading plans.

Google Glass joins my stable of tech gadgets

After a long wait, including an Indiegogo campaign, I have finally joined the ranks of Explorers who have Google Glass devices. I guess this is appropriate given my Kingdomality personality style is the Discoverer. As you can tell from the pictures, I went with the Tangerine color as it was available. I'm really not sure how much I would wear Glass in say the work environment or other professional settings, so I'm not really too concerned with them being "discrete".
