Update after update? Not sure why, but so many times, I'll be notified of an update to an app on my N6 through the Play Store. I dutifully update it, then, the next day, get a notice to update the same app again. This doesn't happen with every app, but occurs so frequently that I've got to believe that the app updates are not 'taking.'

Anyone else notice this behavior?

Just started using Project Fi's phone network... a combination of Sprint, T-Mobile and wi-fi networks here in the US... .any chance that Open Signal would show Project Fi as a carrier?

I didn't ask a very precise question.... what I'm hoping for is a coverage map that shows (ideally) Project Fi's coverage map of Sprint, T-Mobile and Open WiFi networks. It's not a huge deal, but would be nice to see.

I'm 66 years old, and I have never heard our country's anthem ever sung with more power, more eloquence and more beauty than this. It brings tears to my eyes.

I have GOT to stop watching these Pitmaster X videos when I am hungry... that veal looks sooooooooo tender and juicy. The rubs look great. I am going to try this over the weekend.

Charles - this is the best doggone bow tie video on YouTube. The trick that you show that no one else does is pulling the first part of the bow out, away from your neck, forcing that gap to open up. Brilliant! This saved me a lot of frustration. Well done, sir!

One America News Channel - anyone seeing this new cable channel? I typically watch a half hour of news when I eat lunch, and out here on the left coast, that would usually mean watching the detestable Shep Smith. He has a smarmy and opinionated attitude that has grown quite tired. I found a new choice... One America News that seems pretty decent. Their news bunnies aren't quite up to Fox's standards, and they run a lot of PSAs rather than commercials, but they're 10x better than watching Smith.

We get the Al Jazeera network here in Houston. It's a load of crap.

Nice review.. I tried Derby and didn't think that they lasted more than two shaves and were not all that sharp.... whereas the Feather's did great... I suppose every face is different!

What do mean by "blurred"?

I appreciate the explanation of how each knife is used..... always wondered how to use a deboning knife.

Great experience in worship - but I'm biased.... I am a parishioner here. If you want to experience Christianity in its purest and undiluted, original recipe form, check out an Orthodox church. St. Michael's is a Russian Orthodox parish, but you won't feel out of place. It is a parish of mostly converts, so all the services are in English.. The parishioners are friendly and welcoming to newcomers. There is a Saturday night vespers service at 5 and a Sunday service at 10am. Check out the REAL catholic church!

We are staying at the Flagship Inn, practically next door to Morning Glory and decided to have breakfast there. We came on a weekday morning and were promptly seated. Service was excellent and the food was great. The portions were large and creative. My wife got gluten-free french toast which she said was great. I got a chorizo scramble which was more than I could eat. It was a bit pricey - each dish was around $11, and my double espresso was $6. But the meal was great and we'll definitely return on our next trip through town.
