Life's little connections

Yesterday my girlfriend bought herself a new (used car).  It was almost exactly 10 years ago when I bought my last car.  My previous car first started showing signs it was preparing to commit suicide while I was driving down to Oakland to do voting system certification testing for the Secretary of State's office for an optical scanner made by a company called Sequoia. 

Tomorrow I am getting ready to drive to Oakland again, this time for the CDP's Executive Board meeting.  Meanwhile tomorrow most of California's political eye will instead be on Imperial County as the recount begins in John Perez's best county which uses a slightly updated version of the same optical scanner I was testing ten years ago. 

Small connections. 

P.S.- Due to my field trip no daily thoughts tomorrow.  Back on Monday.
