Ok, who else got the latest Google app update and don't like the changes. For me, I don't like that they switched from transparent background to white. And I am not seeing a way to change it back.

I just got the update yesterday. Wow, it takes so much screen space just for a search now on my Note 4. The white background on everything looks horrible when customizing the wallpapers too

Here's my 35+ year old Schrade Folding Hunter (250T). Back when the blades were made from HCS (1095 IIRC) and still made in the US. I actually found this knife at a local fishing pond when I was a 10 year old lad. Carried this knife with me all my life. Still going strong. Blades have a nice patina but are still smooth and no pitting. Bent the tip on the hunting blade once and just hammed it back straight and kept going.

This is just so awesome and amazing. I would love to have one of these trees. :D
In an ongoing series on hybridizing fruit trees, Syracuse University sculptor Sam Van Aken’s Tree of 40 Fruit is true to its name. Most of the year, it looks pretty ordinary, but in the spring, the tree blossoms display various tones of pink, crimson, and white. Then, from July through October, it bears 40 different types of stone fruit, including almonds, apricots, cherries, nectarines, peaches, and plums.

A couple of new additions to the household. A B.O.B Fieldcraft and a TBS Boar folder. I also bought a TBS bushcraft knife sheath HOPING it would fit the BOB Fieldcraft...it does. :D Both knives are very well made. Excellent in construction, fit and finish. Can't wait to put them to use.

Most people say the 1Lb. natural stone is heavier than a 1 Lb. synthetic stone. I would agree with that but only if the two stones were the same shape. The best option is a stone that is hollow. Backpackers agree with this when asked.

Was at the local Ren fest and came across a shop that sold Steampunk inspired creations. If I only had the money. :D

Ok, just for my own edification, but why were two of my posts here deleted? They were both science oriented (one was about cheap field microscopes and another about tree grafting). Please help me understand what is is you are looking for in science posts if science oriented posts are being deleted. Am I just not allowed to post?

+Science on Google+ Thank you for your response. I'm glad to hear there is room on this site for us none scientist types :). I really enjoy the site and love all the work that everyone puts into it. I will try and keep any future posts in the correct category and also ensure the subject wasn't previously posted. And I fully understand about deleting duplicate posts to keep clutter down. I have no problem with my posts being deleted for such reasons.

I'm sure all the Mods are busy keeping the site free of SPAM and irrelevant material, however, and this is just a suggestion, in the future when deleting posts perhaps the Mod could add a short comment stating why it is being deleted. Even if it's just a couple words like "previously posted". It would help to reduce misunderstandings such as this and IMHO save more time in the long run following up with people wondering why their posts was deleted.

Again, just a suggestion. Thanks again and keep up the good work. :)

A regular lunch spot for me. Great food at great prices. Friendly staff. good place to eat if you work or live in the area. Not sure why people are complaining about the prices. I generally spend around the same amount (or more) anywhere I go unless it's something like Mickey D's (or some other fast food joint). And this food is way better than that. The portions are also nice. If I get the special, I almost can't finish it all.

Have gone here for several years now. Always good service and they even sold me a name brand tire that was cheaper and better than one I had originally picked out. I will continue to go here for my tire needs.

Best Chinese take out in the area. I'm a huge crispy beef fan and this place has the best I've had in MD. Large portions too (always some left for the next day). Note: I didn't rate the decor because I've never actually been to restaurant, always order delivery. Also there are other restaurants with the name Chopstix, don't confuse them with this one that has two Xs in the name (Chopstixx).

I used to use this particular NTB in the past without issues. However, the last time I went here, the girl at the front counter ended up losing my locking lug key after I walked to my vehicle and got it, returning inside and handing it to her. Then she along with the manager accused me of not giving it to her even after my daughter stood there and also told them that yes, I gave it to the girl (pointing right at her). They all but called me a liar and even went so far as the manager announcing loudly that he was going to go on the highway where I changed to my spare tire to look for my lock that I lost. At this point I was livid and admittedly lost my temper and raised my voice pretty much going off on them. It wasn't until I told them to just forget it and bring my vehicle back out, that I would go elsewhere for tires, before the manager finally conceded and made the statement "looks like I have to pay for ANOTHER set of locking lugs". At this point I was flabbergasted because to me his statement sounded as if this wasn't the first time his staff had lost lug keys. To make matters worse, two days later when I went to have my brakes done (someplace different), the mechanics found one of the lugs on my front tire had been cross threaded and the only way to get the lug and wheel off was to actually break off the lug post. Now I can't prove anything, but I believe the NTB staff did this on purpose in retaliation for the incident. But again, that is just my opinion and I can't prove it. Needless to say I had to pay the mechanics doing my brakes to replace the lug post, and needless to say I filed a complaint with NTB Corporate (not that it made a difference). I haven't gone to NTB since and never will again.

Nice bunch of people working there. Always friendly and very knowledgeable. They have one of the largest selections of firearms in the Glen Burnie area and I have purchased (and sold) numerous firearms from them over the years.
