Hope you had a great week.

Last weekend we purchased a new IKEA desk so that I could have a new home office setup. My new setup is now in the living room, and I'm delighted with it. Nice to change it up a bit.

I started reading a new book this week, Mindf*ck: Inside Cambridge Analytica's Plot to Break the World. I'm about 1/3 in, but I find it fascinating, shocking and intriguing. If you have any interested in data and psychology, even if it's just small, I highly recommend this book. Amazing and scary what can be done with tools as Cambridge Analytica created.

Thank you for reading, have a great week and stay positive!
