I don’t understand all this fancy grill tech you guys are talking about. I just go in the back yard and light some wood on fire.

The camera is coming today and I’ve been reading more of the reviews and came across this one, in which the owner used it to catch his wife cheating!  My husband and I have been trying to figure out exactly what’s going on in the picture, though.

Thanks for the camera recommendation. All I’ve been doing is looking at my cat sleeping while I’m downstairs.

I’m setting up Backblaze backup now. I want to have several months to get everything settled in place before Crashplan shuts down in October. I have 2 computers to backup. Is anyone using the groups option with Backblaze? I want combined billing for 2 computers. I can’t tell if it’s better to just login with my account on my wife’s computer or set up her own account and use the groups.


Mike – what were the results of the poll you put out in the FB group?

What do the average guys and gals think about the ideal way to convert a non-smart TV into a smart TV (for streaming Netflix mostly)? Roku Ultra has been suggested, but I’d like to know what the brainiacs around here think. Gracias!



Jim – What am I watching on Youtube?  Lots of coverage of Hawaii and the disaster that is happening there.



Jim’s new D-Link DCS-936L – Set up was super easy.  Mounts just about anywhere (power cord is a little short). Wifi connect via phone. You HAVE to really have an SD card for it to be productive.  Still trying to get the videos to play off my phone. D-Link app is pretty basic. –
