Nothing like America in an election year, that's for sure!

It's so so so slow at work today and I figure it will only get worse tomorrow. Ugh - days before a 3-day weekend are awful.

Just want to go home.

I'm currently roasting poolside at Hurricane Harbor NJ. There's a nice breeze. We have 2 chairs, my daughter loves that she has pretty much free reign as long as she tells either me or my dad where she is. Life is good.

Looks like it might have been a bad idea staying up so late to finish last night's link post. I'm really dragging today, haha.

Morning all! College football is back! Awesome game last night between Vandy and South Carolina. This was the difference in the game. 4th and 11, Vandy is down 17-13 with just over 2 minutes to go. Jordan Rodgers (Vandy QB) throws one deep to an open receiver down the sideline as he's hit. This is what ensues:





Pass interference anyone?? Anyone?? Bueller??

Morning all...just checking in and trying to get caught up....seriously having a hard time in the RW these days....so thanks to everyone here....helps me get through the days. Seriously.

We are still struggling to make a decision about Austin and work. The biggest kickers for us right now is that there are zero jobs where we are right now...or how to justify leaving my kids.....
Wedding plans are moving along at an ever increasing pace....woo hoo!!! Feel like we are getting there. Not quite ready, but getting there.
Hope everyone has a safe holiday weekend...and get a chance to relax for a bit!!!

Anybody out there that stays current with TV's? I'm looking for a 46-55" LED full grid array backlight with local dimming. Any suggestions on what models to look for? I know Vizio makes one that is actually a good performer for a decent price but it's an older model...like 3 years old. Sony makes a few but they are outrageous.

I am fully dedicated to Samsung TVs personally. I have two and they have been awesome for me. My DLP especially, owned it for 6 years, it's on 10 hours a day (background noise, my wife hates a quiet house, creeps her out ). Only had to replace the bulb once.

Morning all, apologies for the lack of links, I've been feeling a tad under the weather since yesterday. It was all I could do to drag myself back into work today!

Today should be slow here, perhaps I'll bundle yesterday's stuff and release something midafternoon for you all

As far as I know, Samsung is almost totally dedicated to edge-lit LED tech. I'm only aware of one Samsung that is LED BACK-lit with local dimming.

The Samsung UN46B8500 appears to be the only option from them.

Good morning all and TGIF!

Just got into work now and I get on the train at 7:47AM. Our train stopped suddenly only to find out there was a disabled train in front of us. Not usually a big deal but I guess we had passed a switch track so we had to push this train two whole stops to the end of the line. It was quick shaky the whole way there - interesting start to the morning.

A little over $3 less.

SamsClub seems to be the only place that has it "in-store". Granted I've only checked online to see what is available "in-store" and a lot of times what the website says and what you find IN the store are two different things. I don't feel like waiting for it to be shipped, I just want to go in somewhere and purchase it. Tomorrow I may go check out to Wal Mart, Gamestop and Staples? If one of them has it then impulse might make me buy it. I really should decide if spending $250 right now is a good idea.

I had it in my Achilles tendon. For me it was a dull ache until I moved it the wrong way, then sharp pain. Felt a lot like a sprain.

Get it in my elbow frequently. Tennis elbow from actually playing tennis...go figure.

I got to the point in a couple of matches where I could barely hold my tennis raquet.

Hmm. I only get a dull pulsating pain that comes and goes throughout the day in my knee, nothing major. I haven't looked for a new doctor since I moved. Maybe now I have to.

Penn State is the only team I watch. This season they decided to put names on the back of the jerseys. I personally like how plain they have always been but I get how they are trying to give recognition to those who are staying. And they are no longer playing Sweet Caroline because of the lyrics...ridiculous.

Because of the Sandusky thing the lyrics are now questionable. So they won't play it anymore.

Hell, they sing it everyday during the Little League World Series.

I don't feel like waiting for it to be shipped, I just want to go in somewhere and purchase it. Tomorrow I may go check out to Wal Mart, Gamestop and Staples? If one of them has it then impulse might make me buy it. I really should decide if spending $250 right now is a good idea.
Buying an N7 is ALWAYS a good idea

I will be working all day unfortunately. I imagine I will DVR the florida game though and watch it when I get home.

JMar, I never thought that working at Starbucks was hazardous duty (other than a spurt of hot milk), but this proves otherwise...

Police cruiser was stolen while running before crash into Starbucks - latimes.com

Wow. The politically correct police strike again. I'm super liberal and even I think that's too far.

BB, are you near Old Bridge? Awful news there. Yet another workplace shooting. Glad you're here and not there.

I'm quite a ways from there. It was awful to hear about another tragedy.

Wow, three hours between posts. Guess it must be a long weekend.

Oh, BTW, why do women have two hands? (This oughta stir the pot)

Well, that is LA after all. In Cupertino we deal with things like vagrants destroying the bathroom and the occasional theft. Rarely does a car crash into an SBUX.

BTW, today was sooooooo busy. I took my first break 6 hours into my "8" hour shift. When you're a manager, or even ASM (me, for not much longer though: read: promotion soon), there are no 8 hour shifts! Crazy day. Love my customers and partners (employees) though. They make my day, even if it is crazy.

Thankfully, the baby is still in nap mode and I can chill for a bit more. Love you all, just so ya know.

Evening everyone!
All I have to say is Dixie Chicks - Fly is the best album to soothe this heart right now.
