It sounds to me like he's annoying all the right people.

Fascinating.  I wonder how long before someone gets their hands on the source and opens this up to other brands and models.
Microsoft announced earlier today that it was collaborating with Xiaomi in providing Mi 4 customers with a flashable ROM that allows them to test Windows 10 for phones on their smartphones. It looks like that program is set for a wider rollout, according to a report on TechCrunch: Neither Microsoft nor Xiaomi provided specific details of the Windows 10 software being trialled, but...

Mike Rowe seems to be a terrific human being. Before breaking my back in a roofing accident, I had planned to join the Seabees. It seems God had other plans.
 
Here is a great Sunday read about a man we can all admire for his positive work ethic and desire to help young people learn about how important work really is.

Mike Rowe, show host of CNN’s Somebody’s Gotta Do It, is known for his own hard work and appreciating hard work. That’s why it shouldn’t come as a surprise that he praised one of the hardest working groups (and often the most overlooked) groups around– the Navy Seabees.

Do you know about the Navy Seabees? If not, no worries. Their work is rarely on the front pages of magazines (unless it’s their own - Seabee Magazine), and it’s one of the many reasons Mike Rowe is trying to get the word out about them. A little background:

Seabees are the Navy’s construction workers, with a history of bulldozing and paving thousands of miles of roadways and airstrips, building bases, building and rebuilding infrastructure, and several other accomplishments dating back to World War II. They have a “Can Do” attitude with a motto of “We Build We Fight.” Not only stateside, Seabees are deployed across the world in efforts to help with natural disasters. For this and many other reasons, the Seabees are unique. (I am also proud to say that I had the pleasure of working with the Seabees at a previous position, and they certainly live up to their “Can Do” attitude.)

Rowe recently traveled to Camp Shelby in Hattiesburg, Miss., where he was “showed the ropes” during Operation Bearing Duel. Operation Bearing Duel is a field training exercise held in preparation for Naval Mobile Construction Battalion (NMCB) 1’s upcoming deployment.

Of his experience, he wrote on his Facebook page:

Here at Camp Shelby, the rain has been relentless, and the temperature’s been stuck in the thirties for the last few days. Not pretty – unless of course, you want to test the mettle of a few hundred Seabees.

As many of you know, Seabees are the Navy’s construction workers. They dig wells, build bridges, arrange communications, and when necessary, erect a city. But they’re also trained to defend whatever they construct. That’s the fun thing about the Seabees – they can build anything, and then shoot your ass off if you try to take it away.

He explained an “ordinary” day in the life of a Seabee and of the bridge he helped construct:

Pictured here are a few of the men and women I worked with today. They’re standing on a bridge I had the privilege to help build, looking very much like the competent and determined servicepeople they are. They’ve been here for the last few weeks, getting certified to ship off to parts unknown.

That’s code for sleeping in the mud, working round the clock, eating delicious MRE’s, and assembling a bridge while people shoot at you. Good times!

Rowe admired their strength and fortitude, and their unwillingness to complain:

I was going to tell you about the many physical challenges of the day, and rave about the skill and work ethic of these extraordinary people. But at the moment, I’m preoccupied by their physical toughness and refusal to complain…And if tomorrow is anything like today, there will be no quarter, and no complaining.

With so many celebrities using their voices for personal gain, it’s nice to see someone selflessly acknowledge the hard work and determination of others, especially our military.

Thanks to all you Gruber voters out there, here are the facts about what has just been unleashed.  As with the monstrosity of Obamacare, the administration wants you to ask for a Waiver from the law.  How do you get that waiver?  By begging the administration for one and by doing what THEY WANT.  The internet like our Healthcare has been destroyed.

------------------------------------------------------------------
Listening to Rush Limbaugh today he brought up these important facts about what is coming with these new regulations.

1) In order to have a website, you will be required to have a license
2) FCC Will monitor content and comments made on your website
3) Net Neutrality is about making sure the liberals don’t lose the battle in content on the internet to conservatives.
4) You WILL have limited access to websites that you were normally able to access routinely.
5) FCC will control how much traffic goes to any certain site, if one site is getting too much attention, you will lose the ability to see it.
WAIT UNTIL THEY HEAR THIS! Net Neutrality: The gullible and ignorant have no idea what they've just unleashed

This is some kind of parenting win: http://mashable.com/2015/03/18/bass-baby/
"Going back to Cali" are probably the only lyrics in "Going Back To Cali" appropriate for a toddler.

I asked my 4 year old son what he learned in Awanas tonight and he said "government steals your money!"

The lesson was actually about how the tax collectors would rip off the citizens (kinda like today), but I think I like his takeaway better.

May the bulls win all the fights.
A 1,090lb-bull named Gamusino tossed the pint-sized Karla de los Angeles over his head on Sunday just before she was able to land the killer blow to the enraged animal.

Zero degrees. Our weather transmitter stopped sending temperature data last night at -2 degrees F. So grateful for a wood stove 'cause the heat pump is struggling.

This is in Virginia, not North Dakota!

It got down to -7 at my boss's house (~20 miles from mine.)  Pipes are bursting in a lot of newly built homes.  I'm so glad that our house is battle-tested through some pretty bad weather over the last few decades.
