I wish the Amazon Echo could set a reminder, something like a Timer or Alarm, but you could say, "Alexa, remind me to leave early for work tomorrow at 7am," and then the next day at 7am, rather than just an alarm, Echo could wake up and say "It's 7am. You asked me to remind you to leave early for work."
There’s a whole lot the Amazon Echo can do, including waking you up with handy alarms and reminding you to do things (like take dinner out of the oven) with easy to set timers. Read along as we show you how to create and manage both.

Hey, Rick.  My personal wish is that you could customize the Echo wake-up word.  I'd change it to "Mom" so when my kids say "Mom, what is. . . " Alexa would just answer instead of my having to tell the kids to ask Alexa instead of me!

I saw the moving light (space station), but the video looked like a lot of the underexposed video I've shot in the past ;-)

Even when we have good intentions, we discriminate in ways big and small, as many studies have shown.

Yesterday (January 31, 2016) I asked for late check-out. They told me that was impossible, as it was closing it for good to be demolished and they were locking the doors at noon yesterday. I had figured something might be up as I'd stayed there a year ago and really liked it (older property but attentive staff and everything was clean and worked well), but this year, the fitted sheet wouldn't stay on as it was torn in a corner, the shower only gave hot water, the hot tub was out of order, the pop and water machines were sold out on Friday and the pop machine was gone on Saturday. It's odd that the Howard Johnson website still shows it, but just as an experiment I tried putting any dates in and it would just say there were no rooms available for that date.

They were great for the canoe livery part (don't know about the inn part). Sadly, they are now closed for good. I stopped by and one of the people who work there told me.
