    Bird Box on Netflix

    I read the novel this summer, and it was just OK, so I didn't' bother with the movie.

    Cord cutting accelerates

    All of the streaming services give you a free trial (usually a week) I recommend trying several services to see which one you like best. When I did it I made a list of shows / networks I wanted and compared which packages had which shows, then tested maybe 6 different services. I used DirectvNow for a few months, but it started having issues, so I then switched to Hulu, and I've been pleased with Hulu live TV for many months now. Also for some shows you can watch directly from their website (The walking dead for example - AMC is not on my streaming service, but I use my tablet and watch it on AMC.com)

    daylight savings

    Pick one time and stick with it. Computers have gotten better to deal with it, but it is still a headache each time to make sure servers and computers update properly, and to make sure automated tasks don't kick off twice, etc. If communities or businesses want to get together and have 'summer hours' where you work from 7 am to 4 pm instead of 8 to 5, that could accomplish the same thing. Our utility and parks workers do that here in Laramie, then switch to different hours in the winter time. It works quite well.
  4. I was just in Portland last week for work. there were some protest and a shooting or something a few blocks from my Hotel. I didn't run into any issues myself.

    Investing In Valuable Vintage Vehicles

    I really like the look of the late 60's muscle cars and looked into buying one, but Modern cars have so many nice features and drive so much better that I opted to just buy a new car instead - not to mention how much some older cars go for. I've been very pleased with my decision.

    MP3 player

    My car is a giant MP3 player. I have an ipod that I just pulled out of my old car - not sure when I'll use it again (It still works). since I have all my music on my phone. (Google play, and a 128Gb SD Card) sure beats the days of carrying a discman that would skip all the time.

    The Knife Thread

    That butterfly is a cheap TJ special probably from 15 to 20 years ago. I don't remember where I got the long yellow knife from - probably 25 or more years ago for fishing. Third is a Gerber - pretty lightweight, serrated. Next is a smith and Wesson that is usually kept with my camping gear as a spare. Then the three CRKT (my favorite to carry as I mentioned) one straight and one serrated, then a smaller straight blade because they were cheap. The buck knife at the end I used to carry on my keychain, but the tip broke off 10 years ago or so, and I guess I'm a hoarder as I haven't thrown it away. I have a few leatherman - the wave was from a place I worked in college. They had some made with our company logo to give out to customers - I got a leftover one.

    The Knife Thread

    This is an obsidian knife I picked up for no real reason - Uses an antler as the handle.

    The Knife Thread

    This is the small pocket knife I carry every day. I really like that the pocket clip goes all the way to the edge - so when I carry it the knife sits all the way in the pocket. I hate knives that have the clip an inch or two lower so the knife stick out - drives me crazy.

  12. I used to use DirectvNow - Currently I've been using Hulu With the Live TV - I like it, but don't watch live very much in the summer when its not sports season.
