Grand was approached by a young programmer named Patrick McConlogue in mid-August with a choice: Take $100 or take an opportunity to learn how to code. Grand, who had been homeless since 2011 after he lost his job at MetLife and was priced out of his neighborhood when a high-rise went up on the next block, didn't hesitate.
He wanted to learn to code.
The two men met every weekday where Leo sleeps outside for an hour each morning. McConlogue taught Grand how to program using three used books from Amazon and a refurbished Chromebook McConlogue purchased for Grand online.

I might have bought this horse. Well, technically I did... Looking for a name. Needs to be a city name. Also, yes, he's a goofy idiot like the rest of my animals :)
So apparently all bananas are genetically identical... and could be facing extinction...
