A little blast from the past. USS Texas (SSN 775) transiting the Panama Canal. We were on our way from Groton to Pearl Harbor for change of homeport. We tried to go via the Arctic, but after surfacing at the North Pole we came back down the East coast, stopped off at Panama City, FL, and then came through the ditch.

Does anyone else have issues with the Bluetooth quick toggle showing that BT is off when it is actually on? Mine is always on for the Pebble, but when I'm connected to it and the Bose speaker at the same time, the quick toggle shows that its off. The main settings menu will show it to be on, however.

This has happened on my Flo from time to time. I think it is theme related, as changing the theme with the toggle messed up seems to fix it. On my end, it is purely a visual issue, no real problem.
(Toggle says off, but is actually on, toggle it 'on' and the icon shows on then goes off)

I have a question for the community that a friend and I have been debating. If you have a hard cylinder that is capable of lift when filled with helium or hydrogen, will that same cylinder lift in the absence of most air (29" vacuum for example)?

I've been doing a lot of Tasker Android automation lately, and have integrated Google Voice to automate many things using tutorials found on http://www.youtube.com/user/taskertutorials.  Keep 'em coming +Armando Ferreira! Your efforts are very much appreciated.

The video below details how to find a show on Netflix and start playing it on your TV, all by using voice only.  I do not (yet) have a ChromeCast, so I will be using these same steps to automate playing a movie from my Plex server onto my TV.  Pretty cool stuff.

+Mike McTee, +Joe Swizdor and I went to the Grand Ole Opry house today. Awesome experience, and rich in history.

Every living artist who has been inducted has their own mailbox. Each staging room is themed based on the artist, and a couple artists have their own rooms dedicated to them.

We were able to go back stage, on stage, and where the artists unwind after a performance.

The circle on stage is a piece from the old location of the Opry, the Ryman Auditorium. It was damaged during the flood of 2010, but was successfully restored and put back here.

We just updated our Transparency Report, showing how many requests Google gets for information about its users. But we're not allowed to give the full story because the U.S. government says that requests under the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) must be kept secret. We can tell you this: Requests have more than doubled around the world since 2009, and more than tripled in the U.S.: http://g.co/u5sp

Share this if you believe you have a right to know what our governments are up to.

The best local place to get those random home improvement and project supplies. They are a bit pricey compared to the big box stores, and they don't offer a kama aina or military discount, but the location is unbeatable for Ocean Pointe residents.

We originally posted our Santana 37 for sale on Craigslist over a year ago and received very little interest. Once +Kristin Higgins from POP Yachts contacted us about listing with them, the contacts started rolling in. Every step of the way was professional, and Kristin and her team made the sale of our boat easy and successful. Thanks to all of those involved with your efficiency and professionalism, it truly couldn't have been done without you!

Try the Calvin's and Spicy Ahi. All sushi rolls are excellent at this "hole-in-the-wall" restaurant, much better than can be had at a typical conveyor belt style place.

The staff was very helpful, the store is clean, and one could find just about anything they need for camping, fishing, stand up paddle, kayaking, golf, baseball, soccer, football, and much more. Overall, good experience.
