Fix my phone!  - 
 
Just got the Lollipop 5.1 update for my Droid Turbo but now I am experiencing a weird and annoying bug that makes the phone unusable until I power cycle it. I have yet to figure out what is triggering this. What is happening is that the phone will randomly go to a blank black home screen when I hit the home button. At first I thought it related to G+ but it just happened after I exited maps after it had finished a navigation session. I am using Nova Prime with several widgets. Interestingly, I can still slide from top and see notifications. But attempting to access one (like email) only returns me to a blank screen.
Anyone else with a Turbo and Nova running into this?

+Kevin Passino​ I understand what happens in safe mode. It was when I rebooted into what I thought would "normal" mode that my widgets were screwed up.
Since I am having to rebuild anyway, I will try your suggestion. On Nova: Wipe data, uninstall, reinstall? or do you mean run default launcher?

Android nanny volume warning....can I get rid of it? Someone here told me that Lollipop had a setting that let me disable the nanny volume level warning. Any know about this or was this crap?

Got Lollipop in my Droid Turbo!
So far, I am seeing noticeable performance improvements. Especially noticed that Chrome is quicker. I tried a couple other apps and things seem snappier. Except for the Capital One app...that is still choppy when scrolling.
Anyway....so far so good!

"The Ghost of Vermeer of Delft Which Can Be Used As A Table"
Salvador Dali
1934

Someone posted a Vermeer painting...this popped into my head.
This is one of those Dali paintings that almost has sound, for me. A nonstop, droning wind.
(I know, I'm weird)

Introduction
I am married, have one child (who counts as three), one wife and live in a townhome with a cockatiel who thinks he owns the place.I like to watch my son grow up, go camping in a pop-up camper, take bad pictures while on hikes, watch Pixar and Disney computer animated movies on Bluray, tweak my cobbled together "home theater", take naps, drink coffee, pretend to know what I am doing at work and generally just get by.  I live in the frozen north of a land called Minnesota where it gets really cold in the winter.But, we can take it! (we have to) I like Steely Dan, Pink Floyd, Pat Metheny and Bach. I really don't know what is on television since I don't watch it.

Really nice pottery. Whimsical pieces to practical items all very well done. The owner/artist, Haddie, was very friendly and interesting. We bought a beautiful large bowl...very nice. She also has beautiful pottery items from Nicaragua. We will be back.

I have been buying tires for both my 2006 Sienna and a now sold 1998 Saturn SL for a few years from these guys. They have been good to deal with. No complaints. Courteous and pretty quick. Usually I can get in and out in a reasonable time for rotations. Will be back.
