    I meant to post this pic the other day... the mysterious missing chunk of plastic next to the volume rocker on my 1520. Found it like this after taking the case off of it to clean the phone. Have no idea how it happened, or where that little piece of polycarbonate body went...

    You're better off just keeping it.

    If he does, either her marries her or finds himself with a line as far as the eye can see if her puts her in a museum and charges ticket prices to go see what she looks like...

    Looking around and I'm seeing lots of mixed reviews about the G5. Essentially it's got a "yeah, but..." sort of ring to the story. That seems pretty sad. I like the phone...just have no money or mad itch to buy one.

    Ok. Yeah, the new frypan and skillet I bought just a year ago for myself already has the "Teflon" coating coming off of it. And these weren't cheap "T-Fal" pans either... I paid a good amount of money for them.

    They do get used quite a bit though...
    Sometimes when it comes to the high end stuff they don't last as long. Maybe it's the level of abuse and sometimes it's how they're cared for and sometimes we pay high and money for some stuff a trip to the 99 cents store will give us a hidden gem that does a better job.

    They marble coated this skillet and while cooking the shrimp I noticed that if you put certain things in there without liquids it'll stick to the pan (like the grated garlic), but as soon as some liquid hit the pan, things ran very smoothly. I had washed the shrimp with some lemon juice and water and then seasoned it in a separate container with some black pepper, seasoned salted, dried oregano and general meat seasonings. Once I threw that into the pan and it hot the garlic, everything unstuck and the natural juices created this runny garlic and parsley sauce that's present. Only difference was there was no butter to be the base of the sauce.

    Two weeks in and I'm satisfied with the G4. My experience is pleasant enough where if I were buying a phone this year, based on what's been released so far I'd get a G5.

    Do I miss my bigger battery and smaller size and Moto glance like features? Hell yes. But if they don't update the Maxx to 6.0.1, I'll likely transition to the G4 full time.

    So...I was watching through some video reviews of the 950 XL and a mini itch took hold. You know, the kinda itch where I sell my M8 + Maxx to land a 950 XL. And find a way to trade my OG 360 for a medium Band 2...And then just pair my SW3 to my G4 and recycle the other 128GB memory card I have into the 950 XL...

    And then I decided I'm not in the mood to do all that work to make the dream come true.

    Man, it was a nice dream though. Going down to 2 devices again is an interesting thought...

    I was reminded last night again of how much of a rat race we can lead here in the "developed world". It was good to see my sister (always is) and to connect with a space filled with people that have positive energy and are focused on making meaningful changes.

    I'm still debating whether or not I should just make the jump permanently to Windows 10 on my T100. Not surprisingly, that device has held up really well since purchase in fall 2013. Absolutely one of my top 5 tech buys of all time (my Z3 tablet compact is also on this list).

    I didn't even bat an eyelid and upgraded my Surface Pro 3 when it showed up. Very happy with it so far.

    Just upgraded the Surface Pro 3 yesterday. Hopefully no issues...

    I'm now in Windows 10 on all laptops.

    The next thing I need to do is:

    I've sold one so it needs a clean install.

    I need to clear another one and sell it.

    Need to set up the wife's new laptop.

    Then clean install W10 on the old one because we have issues with it.

    Then hopefully I'm done playing around with laptops for awhile.

    Did a lot of walking around over the weekend. Then built some furniture for my wife's office. Storage stuff as that's what's lacking the most.

    We still have lots of painting to do... Needed a break from it.

    It's looking like our trip this year will be to Greece. Not 100% sure but it's looking that way.

    Greece has been on my list since I was about 10 years old. Egypt is about the same length of time. So it will be nice to scratch one of those off.
