Hey friends, if you aren't already using AmazonSmile to support a charity, consider supporting the Ashburn Volunteer Fire Rescue Department (AVFRD)​ by using this link to shop at Amazon:  http://smile.amazon.com/ch/54-0736744.  Amazon will donate a portion of any purchase (0.5%) you make through AmazonSmile to the fire department (regular operations and the +AVFRDBuildingCampaign ).  It will cost the department more than $10,000 to outfit me with gear and tools as I become a volunteer firefighter - every little bit helps!
Amazon will donate 0.5% of the price of your eligible AmazonSmile purchases to Ashburn Vol Fire Dept, Inc. whenever you shop on AmazonSmile. You can select a different charitable organization after signing in. AmazonSmile is the same Amazon you know. Same products, same prices, same service.

Joshua Townsend was out running. He tracked 6.11 mi in 1h:09m:14s.

This may be the farthest, longest running of my whole life. 7 days to the volunteer firefighter physical agility test.

I started seeing reports of adware/malware being installed on Lenovo laptops yesterday.  The story is picking up steam today (Wired covered it here), and that’s a good thing because this little bit of adware poses some significant risks.  The program causing the problem, Visual Discovery, was pre-installed by Lenovo on some laptop models since August …

Arbor Artist is completing work at my house right now. They've been excellent to work with, from initial on-site estimate scheduling to the work being done on my trees. Very knowledgeable and friendly - clearly selective in how they trim trees to keep them looking natural, balanced and healthy. Their price came in well below that of their nearest competitors, well easily outshining their competitors on professionalism. These guys know trees - much better than some of the general landscaping folks who just arbitrarily cut branches!

I have found Automotive Unlimited to be an excellent repair shop. I have now had them service multiple vehicles, foreign and domestic. Their service is prompt - often same day, they communicate with their customers with clarity and honesty, and repairs have come in below their estimate each time I have used them. In addition, their estimates/rates seem to beat the other shops from which I received estimates. I highly recommend these guys!

Non-smoking room smelled very smoky. Bedding had burn marks and was quite old. Bathrooms were rough. Carpet stained. Lobby smelled of curry. Plumbing bad (sink didn't drain). Just plain bad.
