Looks like a pretty reasonable list.
A “bug-out bag” or emergency go-bag is something everyone should have in their home or vehicle (or both). When disaster strikes, you’ll be glad you have these survival items pre-packed and ready to go.

Great post.  I love the following quotes from the original article:

"A state that could stop every suicide bomber wouldn't be a free or, let's face it, fun one."

"We will simply never get to maximum defensive posture. Regardless of political affiliation, Americans wouldn't tolerate the delay or intrusion of an urban mass-transit system that required bag checks and pat-downs."

Referring to the bombing of the Boston Marathon: "the only truly safe way to host a marathon is to not have one at all."

"There is no ideology, no surveillance, no wall that will definitely stop some 24-year-old from becoming radicalized on the Web, gaining access to guns and shooting a soft target."

Never10 prevent win 7 & 8.1 from automatically upgrading to Windows 10
Microsoft really, really wants you to upgrade to Windows 10, but if you’re a happy Windows 7 or 8.1 user, you shouldn’t be forced to upgrade. Never10 gives you control over whether Windows will upgrade itself.

I live next door to the care center so I see on a daily basis how the staff treats the residents. I would not allow anyone in my family to live there (I would say "be incarcerated there" is more accurate). The staff pays little attention to the residents. Residents can be seen wandering the neighborhood, unsupervised, at times and have even broken in to neighbors homes. The staff / management also don't seem to care about the interface / relationship between the residents, the home itself, and the neighbors. I would think this would be an excellent opportunity for the home to change the stereotype of those with mental capacity issues. Instead, they seem to almost go out of their way to offend and annoy the surrounding neighbors. This is not to say that all staff members are this way. There are certainly a very few who actually seem to care about the residents, but they are clearly in the minority.

Jason and the crew at Laptop Depot are great to work with. They have outstanding customer service and great prices. Don't waste your money buying a brand new computer when you don't really need it. Instead, buy a used machine from Laptop Depot and save some serious cash. Some of their machines come with the remainder of the factory warranty. In addition to laptops, they also have desktop machines, monitors, printers, and a variety of other items.

Vision Wear is an awesome company to work with. Eric and Kathleen always go out of their way to ensure their customers are happy. They make a great quality product and they do it on time and within budget. I can't recommend them highly enough.
