A Mix
November 6th, 2017

Tempis fugit. It's been a month since my last post. Returning from a visit to the hospital, we cut through Parkwood Estate, former home of multi-millionaire Colonel Sam. The grounds are relaxing and beautiful. From out of nowhere it seemed, this robot came at us... an Automatic Lawn Mower.  














A couple short videos of it in action...

With self-driving cars, AI, auto-this & auto-that, there are some huge changes on the horizon. Any attempt to predict what it will all mean is futile I think. The future is always different than our predictions.


Will the mowers be common in our neighborhoods soon? Probably. This model is about $3000 but you can get a cheaper version for around a $1000. Prices will drop quickly as they always do. We're only at the start of robots taking over jobs. It's a scary future for the young ones, especially those who don't have specialized skills.













RJ joined us at a farm market, as we looked for fall squash & vegetables. They have a kid's play area there.


















Some of the squash we  picked up. We all thought the 'swan squash' was cool.





















One day when I picked up RJ from school, he asked if I wanted to hear a tune he'd learned on the recorder.

RJ went out as the Grim Reaper for Halloween, complete with axe.
























A scary trio.
























No doubt the last tree tunnel shot I'll get this year. I can't resist them.

Our best,
Bob & Jane
