A Robot in the Dentist Chair

    Google+ looks very cool, but it seems there are no more invite requests, I can only be kept posted, oh well, guess I have to wait. Cali I hate to say this, but the girl in the dentist chair gives me the willies, ‘freaky!!!’ But I see her more a manikin than a robot. Great GB Live today, I had fun, and as always, I learned alot, thanks!!! “B”
