Our stroller from when we were kids - sat one kid and bags in back or two kids, one behind another. Bottom pan came off with the handle and became a walking trainer.

Weighed a lot, didn't fold up. Great ride though. I kept taking it down the basement steps.

The sit and stand deluxe was great, of all 9 it was our favorite. Inexpensive (relatively), still easy to turn even though it's long, plus a ton of different seating options. But it is bulky even folded. Hope that helps!
I think since we're having twins and won't have to deal with different ages at this point...we're going to end up getting one of the cheaper frames that the infant carseat snaps into since they'll only be in the infant seats up to a year. For after that I think the Britax B-Agile double looks like a good option. This way we don't have to worry about finding a convertible stroller that fits 2 infants and then has 2 toddler seats for later.

Say what you will about his fashion sense, but this is a really cool time-lapse of a teacher, wearing the same outfit, on class picture day. Every year. For 40 years!

Happy "hump" day - even though we have off tomorrow. Boss asked me to come in on Friday for a half day so might just drive in to not have to take the train.

BTW -- supposedly white Pebbles are shipping now!

I watched this twice for pics and or swears and didn't hear any. Will still put in NSFW tags as howls of laughter may ensue.

Okay folks:

As planned, I made the Lil' Smokies Bacon-Wrapped Jalapeno Poppers!

HomemadePoppers[1].jpg



Here's the recipe:

http://www.food.com/recipe/spicy-lil-smokie-bacon-wrapped-jalapeno-poppers-389459

And let me tell you something. They are LEGENDARY. These epic gut-bombs make the perfect appetizer to the meal yet to come: Porterhouse steaks, sauteed mushrooms, steak fries, and baked beans!

We are OFF the diet wagon today - and we are scarfin' some foody-poos up in here! Cloudy and rainy here, so no fireworks. We'll make our own right here at home!

Hope you guys are having an equally phenomenal Independence Day

Looking like July 11th will be the day that Motorola announces the X and Ultra phones.

I sure as heck hope so. My Nexus is about done.

well guys its a sad day for me ... after calling Verizon and them sending me 4 different replacement phones (called about various things) in the span of 2 months Verizon gave me choice

1) use upgrade (extend contract)
2) try and find a "new" galaxy nexus and send it to me (extends contract)
3) get a different model phone (refurbished) until end of my contract (does not extend contract)
4) do nothing

I took the third option because these referb phones at least for the nexus are bad with vzw and I am at the point where i just want my phone to work SO ...

I was able to choose between a Motorola Razer Maxx, Samsung G S III, and an HTC DNA

so next Monday my new "used" GSIII will be here ... I have to send back my nexus and I am going to miss it dearly

An S3 is not a bad replacement. Just root and ROM it with something AOSP and you should be fine. Also, I hear the battery life is slightly better than the Gnex.

OH trust me it will be unlocked, rooted, and rommed with in 20 mins of it arriving at my house on Monday

and i agree with ya it is not bad but it is not a nexus its all about the name and the meaning behind it ... not like having a nexus phone on vzw meant anything to begin with

Well if it makes you feel better, the less than stellar radio reception will feel very familiar of course if that was never a problem for you with the GNex it won't be an issue now either. I hope you like your new phone!

Hope everyone had a great 4th! I made ribs, and chili rubbed grilled corn on the cob, and mac n cheese. Unfortunately kids are still too young to do a local firework show, due to the late finish, and no fireworks at the house due to what happened 3 years ago, so no fireworks for me.

Chief, those poppers look fantastic! I'm very jealous.

Sorry to hear that your Nexus couldn't make it to the finish line, BBK

My Darling Bride's S3 is rooted and stock. It's a very capable phone (she STILL uses it like a jitterbug, bless her heart), but you're right: it's not a Nexus. And that big honkin' home button would drive me nuts. Give me a slick front any day!

Well, the four of us ate all of those poppers last night. Every one of them... and we were stuffed. Porterhouse steak dinner postponed until tonight

Have a great weekend everybody!

Good morning all - TGIF. Happy belated 4th, hope everyone had a good time and stayed safe yesterday.

I drove into work today, hopefully only a half day here. The roads were absolutely empty this morning and I know how bad the traffic can get around here. Had to buy a jump pack yesterday because my battery keeps dying, need to get to the bottom of this although I think its my radiator fan sticking on. I pulled the fuse for now and I'll see what happens after I get out of work today.

Morning everyone! Hope you all had a great 4th! We had the family over for a big cookout and gender reveal for the babies. I did 2 racks of my secret recipe dry rub ribs which turned out great! Great, light smokey flavor (apple wood) with a little heat in the rub. Also did hamburgers in case someone didn't want ribs (no clue why anyone wouldn't).

After the food we made the two sides of the family compete against each other in gameshow-like fashion answering questions to earn balloons with scrabble letters in them. After balloons were earned they had to race each other to pop them and unscramble the letters to spell the names of each baby (we had discussed all name options with them over the last several weeks). And now for the GNex Watering Hole reveal!

Anyone think that a watchface that tells you the closest gas station and the cheapest gas station (in X mile radius) would be useful on the Pebble?

Already wrote the PHP script, just need to design the watchface now.

I think that would be very useful myself.

Thanks Anti! They're fraternal. I imagine they'll be as different as night and day.

Haha, it's going to be fun. I'm impressed you have decided on names already! We didn't decide on my daughter's name until the week before she was born. And my youngest wasnt until l after he was born!

I am so tired of the rain. It's been cloudy and rainy for a full week here now! I don't live in Seattle!

Naming is probably hard. I haven't done it, as I'm only 18 but one could only imagine.

Well we had settled Landon but then grew pretty tired of it because we knew too many. Anyway, decided on Weston (not sure of spelling yet..Westin, Westyn, Weston?) and Paxton. Almost named them Weston and Easton. Haha, figured that wouldn't be good.

Quick question...why does both my wife's phone and mine only charge in USB mode on this charger? And does anyone know of one that will charge full AC charging? I know you can modify the cable somehow to enable it, but I'm going to have to dig that up...would prefer one that just did it.

Have you tried it with your original cable? Normally it's the cable that's the culprit as opposed to the charger itself.

I understand that some chargers short the data cables to put it into fast ac charging mode. I heard that from Harry2, he's pretty smart on that stuff. Evidently some iDevice chargers don't. Something like that.

And then other devices have resistance requirements, there's a thread on XDA on how to modify your cable if you're handy with a soldering pencil.

~~~~~~~

Congrats on the twins! I literally lol'd at Weston and Easton! Sounds like the makings of an old Western saga of a gunfighter and the good one! Which means if they were mine, I'd totally do it!

Kaat - rooting is always a good idea. Allows you to really make the device your own.

I hope the signal probloms are not bad that is one of the things I hated so much about my gnex but it was so bad that I would get one bar at @-117 dbm out side in a great coverage area ... give me -100 to -110 dbm to where it will at least work and ill be happy ... ish

Here is the Droid Maxx..



The S4 is now on hold for me. I am waiting to hear about the Droid Ultra. Possibly even the Maxx. The Moto X is somewhere off in the distance. I think I can see it if I squint really hard?

You have some great willpower Halon. I thought you had already made the plunge to the S4.

I was gonna post this in the Happy 4th of July thread but I thought it more fitting here, especially with gEEk announcing his frat twins. BTW, not sure if I said congrats to you gEEk, but congrats! Liking the possible name choices (good call on the Easton/Weston deal). Something you can look forward to, times two...

Geeez, that Droid Maxx looks so doggone...

...industrial.

Why do they have to make their phones look so MEAN? I want a nice phone with clean lines and they give me some military-looking thing. I was military, I did military stuff, I don't want military looking stuff anymore

I'm not sure what I'll end up with... but this is the year. Come on, Verizon Nexus 5

Almost got it last week and then I saw the mention of the Ultra and Maxx phone. So now I'm waiting to see what they bring to the table. I even held out hope for the LG G2 but they are putting buttons on the back of the phone, I really don't like that. This Nexus was a great phone and I wish it could last forever.
