It is that long-awaited point in time — likely, a point in our very near future — when advances in artificial intelligence lead to the creation of a machine (a technological form of life?) smarter than humans." |Futurism http://bit.ly/2w23XLg

Spend a night camping out on a sheer rock face hundreds of feet off the ground. Cliff Camping should be on every adventure seekers “Bucket” list!" Ah, let me think about it and I'll get back to you!

Dim sum
Then some
7/5/2018 - Poetry form: Footle - Copyright © Mark Toney | Year Posted 2018 - “Dim sum (literal meaning: snack) is a style of Chinese cuisine prepared as small bite-sized portions of food served in small steamer baskets or on small plates. The Cantonese tradition of having endless cups of tea and dim sum is also called “yum cha”, which means “drink tea” in Cantonese... Yum cha has its roots in travelers on the ancient Silk Road needing a place to rest. Thus, tea houses were established along the roadside... People later discovered that tea can aid in digestion, so teahouse owners began adding various snacks.” (Wikipedia -Dim Sum)

Located in Gweta, Botswana, the Baobab tree capital of the world, where the average age of each tree is 4000 years and beyond, and the boundless lunar landscape of the Makgadikgadi salt pans is the size of Switzerland!(planetbaobabbotswana.com)
