The end of Mademoiselle. Data Farming. "Sweet Home Chicago"

President Obama joined BB King in singing "Sweet Home Chicago" last night (blues concert airs next month on PBS). Being from Chicago that is one of my favorite blues songs. I have performed it many times for audiences and at parties. Obama is not a singer!

Apple is buying 150 acres to build a new Data Center in Oregon and has on in North Carolina. The data centers are the size of shopping malls, requiring low cost land. Google and Amazon have centers in both states as well. All three also have farms in China and other foreign countries.

All government forms in France have banished Mademoiselle, so all women will be Madam. Gone will be the equivalent of "miss" which French activist have called insulting to women. The French do not have the equivalent of "Ms."

Well President Obama wasn't that bad, he got caught up in the moment with BB King and the song.

As for data centers around the world, no comment or opinions.

Who made France the decision maker whether I want to be called Mademoiselle or Madam? They need to catch up with the world and come up with the equivalent of "Ms." I am a "Ms." I feel old being call madam or mam! Just my opinion.

Hello large Data farms, I welcome you with open arms. Mainly because my job is dependent upon data.

As most manners have been flung out the window, I don't think that we need to worry too much about Mademoiselle going to madam. I don't know the last time I heard madam even. Such an obsession with being young vs. being old. I'm going to die sometime, if you want to help along there with language, so be it, but I don't think it's meant that way. Though maybe it is.

Manners have not flung out the door, I know many young and old with good manners and a few older folks with none at all. I have been call madam but I would rather be called Ms. Manners should still be taught, I respond better with someone that has good manners. :)

Obama singing! Its about time the president did a little entertaining for us.

I like the data center idea, so long as its not detrimental to the folk around town. Its like a digital library.

Wee wee? Well good for them, I hope many a french man doesn't end up on his couch tonight.
