Becky says, "So it looks like when we use the Chromecast, House is in HD, not like with the wii". Yup. Awesome. One less box next to the TV.

I'm planning to buy a Chromecast as well ... Looks like good value, and it's at least one less cable (HDMI).

THAT is a real good picture. You should see if some advertisement type company needs a family picture with a red head dad.

Paired with Plex, it is a pretty sweet setup. Becky was like "I'm not convinced. It's not like we couldn't do any of this before..." But she never had to do any of the laptop hookup to the TV, and she doesn't mind inserting DVDs and fiddling with remotes... 

Performance is pretty awesome and all for $35... pretty cool age we live in.

Martin City Spare Ribs Special - TONS of ribs, finger-licking-good BBQ sauce, crispy fries. Simple, but delicious. Wife got the burnt ends sandwich, definitely the winner. The tart-sweet coleslaw combined with the sweet-savory BBQ was a party in the mouth. These guys make fabulous chicken tenders for kiddos as well.

I've contracted Oliver's Plumbing twice for my 1900s-built home here in Sun Prairie. Ron's workmanship is superlative and timely. His manner is very kind, honest and personal. Both of the jobs I had done were on old construction that has been decaying. In the first situation, Ron replaced the toilet drain flange, which was cast-iron, a job I was not capable of. The second job was done today and he replaced my tub train, again, having to saw away hundred-year-old cast-iron drain pipes, removing a drum trap and replacing all that with modern PVC. No more clog, no more hair, and the construction is beautiful. I'd highly recommend Oliver's plumbing to anyone in the Madison area.

You'll be glad you stayed here. We stay in a hotel each time we visit my parents in Joliet. I've stayed at three hotels in the area now and Hampton is far and away the best in the immediate area. The room was very clean, staff was very friendly and accommodating. Breakfast was not luxurious, but satisfactory and they had good coffee. When we checked in the manager said that the workout room had just been remodeled. Contrary to @Maithil, our reservation was right on the money, no hang ups at all.

Jason helped us buy our first house and we had a great experience with him. He pointed out a lot of things to us that we would have otherwise been ignorant to. He knew exactly what he was doing. He was also very friendly and good to work with. Will certainly use his services again when the time comes.

Wonderful service. Wine recommendation by waiter was really spot on. I had the suppe di pesce, which was stunningly more pesce than suppe or pasta. A half lobster cut from head to tail, lots of fresh mussels and clams, shrimp and scallops, simply delicious. Olives and warm focaccia to start. I couldn't finish the whole dish, split it with a friend!

So I haven't been here in about 8 years, but when I lived in Berlin, I frequently dined at Al Dente. Linguine al Parmigiana was on the menu which is what I believe the man in the picture on the webpage is making. It was a heavenly experience. I thought the selection of pastas was varied enough, but not overwhelming and the quality of food was a notch above the rest. I'd certainly recommend Al Dente to a friend.

We've used Dave's auto repair for the past year or so and we have found him to be a trustworthy mechanic (so hard to find these days!). He does very good work, he's very stright forward and he doesn't hide anything. On top of that, he's really friendly, very timely and a hard worker.
