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. 

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.
