There were at least several others in the picture alone that wore shirts supporting another candidate. Which is kind of gutsy considering the administration is tacitly endorsing this primary candidate. This story is the other side of the story from the presented announcement of being surrounded by 10,000 supporters.

It makes Cruz look desperate that he had to co-opt a mandatory convocation to make this announcement instead of doing it in Texas surrounded by supporters. I imagine other primary candidates will have the opportunity to bring up later not needing a captive audience.

Since the Apple Watch announcement I've had six or more random people a day ask me if I had an Apple Watch. No I say... it's an Asus ZenWatch I've had it since around Christmas and it cost me $200. I then show off some of the voice commands it can do and their minds are blown.
ASUS has published this rather humorous image on Twitter, showing the social network why they should choose the ZenWatch and not the Apple Watch. Whether it's to save a few pennies or to show sanity, the manufacturer is clearly ramping the marketing campaign up. If you're interested in what ASUS has to offer when it comes to smartwatches, be sure to check out our review of the...

+András Oláh I forgot to follow up with a reply to your specific questions.

Did you have a Pebble or any other Android Wear before or you started with the Zenwatch?

No. I know several people that do and I was considering a Pebble strongly when Android Wear was announced and I wanted to go with this platform. I waited for Christmas to get my favorite looking watch of the current generation.

If yes, do you think the ZW is better than a Pebble or a Sony smartwatch?

I think the difference is mostly preference. Go with what you like. They are all great watches that have some standout features that make them best depending on what you really want.

I'm just not that excited to see the Atom in a spin-off.
We're not sure yet if The Atom is the right character to lead a new CW superhero spin-off series.

I planted some blackberry's this week. I'm hoping they will thrive where I have placed them. I guess I will see how they stand up against a San Antonio summer later.

Well I'm hoping the physical separation of the planter boxes will help with that and how aggressive Bermuda is.

The variety I purchased was Apache. It seems there are a few varieties that thrive better in the heat down in Texas here.

One of my favorite comments on the article, "The real danger is wearing one of these defective sweatshirts while playing with legos. Guaranteed choking-death statistic."
 
Fantastic comments, some LOLs on "Gov't Saves 140,000 Kids from...One Faulty Zipper"

(Favorite: "If zipper-pull is choking hazard...what is the government doing about baby teeth???")

About ten years ago I sadly had my mountain bike stolen and while there have been many improvements in mountain bikes, I’m looking for the same model and size of bike that I once had (blame nostalgia). I figure I could find one that’s cheap and do some repairs and upgrades as needed.

This poor review reflects my experience with the Service Department at North Park Mazda. The sales department was great but sadly the service department takes advantage of women and are dishonest. Today my wife took our Mazda5 in for it's 15,000 mile oil change and inspection. My wife requested a service that meets the manufacturer recommendations for schedule 2 of the maintenance guide. My wife was then told there were a few extra services needed at 15,000 miles. These extra services were an air filter change (which is not recommended until a later service) and MOA Oil change additive which is not recommended by the manufacturer. These unrequested and unneeded services added an additional $62.60 to the service charge. If North Park Mazda is willing to lie on small services like this, how much do they lie about on the larger jobs? The service advisor for my wife was Joshua Millecam.

We had a sprinkler system installed by Frank from Compass Irrigation 7 months ago. We received three other bids on the job and decided to go with this company due to the price/quality ratio. We paid $1,425 for the sprinkler install which included an automated system and rain turn off sensor and serves watering the front and back yard of an average sized home. So far the system has worked well and reliably. I have recommended this company to my boss and would recommend them to others.

Excellent food at a great value. Taco Joe's is a Mexican Restaurant that local residents know and love. They have great food and offer an informal night out at a step above the average fast food options. This is one of my wifes favorite places to eat at and I can't blame her.
