Weird fast paced battery drain. Happens every now and then. So far I have only noticed it when using with a non stock watch face.

Hmmmm. Food for thought

Would you donate money for a good cause to an organization whose web page lists "30 years of manfucturing" on the CEO's bio?

IMPORTANT
Do you want someone asking you if you are a commercial photographer when you are out hiking and taking photos on Forrest Service Land? And charge you up to $1500 if you don't comply and get a permit first?

"The draft would require commercial photographers, potentially broadcast and print media as well, to pay for a permit before taking pictures or video on wilderness land. Permits would cost up to $1,500, and fines for not getting a permit up to a $1,000. U.S. Forest Service supervisors would decide which reporters would be allowed access." ~ Matt Renoux, 9news.com

Yikes! Please feel free to share and go comment on the Draft Proposal linked below.

A picture may be worth a thousand words, but a new U.S. Forest Service proposal could cost you a thousand dollars or more for that picture.

+Jawad Akhtar not a worry here is the relevant info. 

This is the Proposed Guidelines (with not $1500 numbers) for Commercial Filming. They specifically state this is in addition to, not a replacement for those set for Still Photography. 
https://www.federalregister.gov/articles/2014/09/04/2014-21093/proposed-directive-for-commercial-filming-in-wilderness-special-uses-administration#table_of_contents

This is the Referenced Document that the proposal is set to be added to. 

http://www.fs.usda.gov/Internet/FSE_DOCUMENTS/stelprdb5109390.pdf

45.51 is the part relevant and it will link from the contents.  (scroll down till you find the contents) 

Here is a horrible document from the Forest service in Comic Sans (which is why it is horrible) on Photography using the words Still Photography may need a permit 

http://www.fs.usda.gov/Internet/FSE_DOCUMENTS/stelprdb5355613.pdf

And Finally here is the Search results from the Forest Service On permits, each result gives you the actual current Permit costs for the various areas.

I'm a research fiend so it only took me about 20 minutes to find enough to debunk the majority of the articles click bait, and about 30 minutes to track this down (not including reading time) The average person might have a harder time if they don't know where to start. Which is why these articles annoy me so much.

Noticed that my Moto360 watch does not keep the right time if it is disconnected from the phone.  I believe this behavior changed in the last update.  Not cool for a watch.  #Moto360

I don't quite get Google's reticence towards adding an SD card slot to its devices.  In my book, that is a major design deficiency in all Google's devices.  I would have bought a Nexus 9 if an SD slot was included.  I continue to be attracted to the possibilities of a Surface Pro 3.

The kids love the zoo. One of the better zoos around. The new attractions (penguins, polar bear, skyride over Africa) are a big hit for all.

Very clean and nice place. Lunch was great and the sushi was excellent. Service by Emille was great. I would highly recommend this place.

This location has absolutely no concern for the customer or providing quality service. The corporate office needs to fire the management in charge and rethink their level of service. Incident # 1: I took in my Yukon for noise from brakes. I was told I needed new brake pads, rotors, etc. Fine, let's get it done. I had to leave my vehicle there, walk back home, get a ride to work, etc. Picked up the Yukon at the end of the day. As soon as I left, I was still in the parking lot when I noticed that the brakes were making a rhythmic thumping noise. Back to the shop. Had to leave it overnight so they could work on it the next day. Arranged for another ride to work. Went back the next day. I was told they fixed the problem. The problem was still there 50 yards from the shop. Took it back. Had to leave it again overnight. Mind you I was dealing with the manager at this time. He assured me it will be taken care of and that this was a safety issue. Repeated ride to work scenario, went back the next evening to pick it up. I had asked the manager to make sure that someone test drove it AFTER fixing the problem. The guy at the desk tells me he personally test drove the Yukon and the problem was fixed. The problem still existed, drove about 50 yards and came back to the shop. These are either the most incompetent mechanics or they don't give a f*&k about the customer or the quality of their work. It was only after the 4th time of leaving the truck that they finally got it right. Incident # 2: Took vehicle in for lifetime balance and rotation deal for tires bought from them. First, you must tell them that or they will charge you for the service. I find that outrageous since the first thing they do is look you up in the computer. Since my last experience with them, I don't trust their service shop, so I marked the tires with chalk to identify the tires that were on the front vs back. 3 hours later, I got a call to come pick up the vehicle. Once there, I noticed that the fronts were still on the front and the back tires were still on the back (no rotation). I am not even sure they balanced them. I was assured that the tires were balanced. Then I had to wait while they rotated them. So then I have to ask, how incompetent do you have to be to take the tires off, balance them and then put them back on the same location when the work order clearly states a rotation? Maybe this is their way to getting your tires worn out faster so you have to replace them more often. In short, incompetent, dishonest, high prices, and no concern about quality work from the head office. I would give them a wide berth if you can. I have had a much better experience at MIDAS hands down on any kind of service. Update: Had them repair a flat tire. The tire leaked again after a week. Took the vehicle to another Firestone. They confirmed that the original puncture was never repaired and that the tire was not repairable. They were upset that the Waldo Firestone is giving their company a bad name. Also, the tires were rebalanced since no one balanced the tires the last time I took it in.

Food is great. if you don't speak Spanish, be ready to point out your choices on the menu. Lots of variety. Reasonable pricing.

Had the fish (sole) special. Probably would have done better at Captain D. They should be ashamed of even bringing that to the table. It didn't even look good.
