I've had two Android phones that have the latest Lollipop update. One of the changes in this update is it lists the carrier name on the upper left corner of the phone, in the notification bar.

I'm glad they did that. It reminds me who I have to pay every month, and if it's one area where useless information should be placed, it's the notification bar.

Doctors, like police, have a very high standard to meet.  Not an impossible one, however.  If you don't care about the people you have to serve as part of your job, then don't serve.
Doctors at the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs medical center in Tomah hand out so many narcotic painkillers that some veterans have taken to calling the place “Candy Land.”

The legislature of our great state of Wisconsin has decided that the next budget should no longer include around $5 million per year to support the state park system, leaving them high and dry and on their own.  Republican state senator Tom Tiffany states, "The people that utilize a service, they should pay for that service."

Yet, they also want to commit between $4-5 million for the next 20 years to very wealthy people so that they can take over a few blocks in downtown Milwaukee for a new arena and entertainment mecca.  Wonder what Senator Tom Tiffany thinks about that?

It seems people already with lots of money should get help from the state, but those who just want to enjoy the beauty of this state should just pay more to see it.

If you could invest $4-5 million every year, which would you prefer the money to go to?  More importantly, instead of replying to my G+ post, let your state representative know your answer.

We need a sense of the oneness of the 7 billion human beings alive today. When I meet people, I don't think about being different from them, about being Tibetan, Buddhist or even the Dalai Lama. I only think about being a human being. We all share the potential for positive and negative emotions, yet one of our special qualities is our human mind, our intelligence. If we use it well we'll be successful and happy.

If I could invent something, I would find a way to make bacon the same size as it leaves the skillet as it is when it goes in.

After noticing the huge crowds that gathered around all the businesses that were open this Thanksgiving between Appleton and Milwaukee on our way home, it seems that Thanksgiving Day has taken over a new and, in my opinion, unfortunate turn.

I guess Thanksgiving is now a place where you should get together with friends and family for just a couple hours now, then rush off to get stuff that you might want, but probably not need, because you might save a few bucks.  I mean, they're going to be open anyways, right?

Huge retailer stores have decided to care about their workers so much that they are willing to pay them 1 1/2 times their normal minimum wage so that they can be open while those that didn't have to work can line up and pay homage to those who did on this glorious holiday that represents two unique cultures meeting in peace and thanks.

I guess the two cultures part is still appropriate.... the have and the have nots.  All the capitalists should be thankful..... they win again!

Miller Brewing is owned by a company in South Africa, Budweiser is actually owned by a Belgium company, and now Pabst got bought by a Russian company. Doesn't anyone else feel there is something inherently wrong with this?

Yes it is. Did not hear about Pabst.

When I walked in one Saturday afternoon, I was the only customer in the restaurant. It made me a little nervous. I went ahead and ordered my meal, and about 10-15 minutes later I just happened to notice that most of the tables were full at that point. Excellent food, and although they don't have a large selection of appetizers, they are very good and even asked if I wanted some more. We will be back again.

In my opinion, one of the best places to have a great concert experience. Chairs are comfortable, can place your drinks on the table, and not a bad seat in the house. The only issue I have with Northern Lights is they don't have enough wait staff during the event. I'd rather not have to wait in line for drinks when there are waitresses around taking orders. A couple more waitresses would really help, in my opinion.

Nice store in a real nice location. My only issue is it can be hard to find staff roaming around when you have questions to need to be pointed in the right direction (the place is huge).

I am always leary when going to nice looking restaurants in higher-end neighborhoods. More times than not, the food is okay but presented well. Supper is definitely the exception. Wife and I went there based on the great review on JSOnline. We had the full lazy susan, salmon, and ribeye. Everything was fantastic. Service was outstanding. Brought most of the main course back home with us. Look forward to the next time the wife and I want to splurge a little bit on ourselves.
