    Recent iPhones can "mirror" on your smart TV.  Anything you are seeing on your phone is shown on tv.  Nice for showing everyone some photos or videos at the same time.






    Thanks. I forgot about that.

    That’s what I hear which is why I’m gonna have to step up my game here! Thanks for the info. I’m checking in to getting a new TV  this week.

    My wife and I bought a 56” Samsung smart tv 4K and lots of features on Sale at Sam’s Club for around $400. 
    We had a Vizeo sound bar from our previous set up and they work great together. 
    You can use the sound bar as your stereo speaker. I use my iPhone and Apple Music to play music through the sound bar. It sounds excellent.

  3. I love having WiFi. 

    Rye, do you use Amazon Prime? If so, with a smart TV and WiFi you can watch movies, TV series, documentaries, etc. You can also, through Prime, stream other channels with discounted monthly fees. 
    You can also use your TV as a computer screen from a laptop or tablet. 
    That’s just a couple of the things WiFi and a Smart TV can do for you.

  4. My daughter & son-in-law have Googlefied their entire house. I was staying with them and going to work while my wife stayed in Oregon until our house sold.

    Anyway, One day they weren’t home and I said “Alexa, play some heavy metal.”

    A second or two later this garbage music comes pouring out of the speakers. 
    I said “Alexa, I asked for heavy metal. Not garbage.”

    Alexa says back “Heavy metal. A genre of hard core rock & roll music. It’s origins are vague but most likely it…”

    ”Alexa! I want to hear Heavy Metal music!”

    Garbage music began pouring from the speakers. (I consider stuffing a microphone in your mouth and grunting a lot to guitars and drums “garbage music”

    ”Alexa Stop.”

    Music stopped. 
    “Alexa play some heavy metal music.”




    ”Alexa, go (blank) yourself”

    Alexa answered…



    I laughed so hard I had tears streaming down my cheeks. 
    Try as I might I couldn’t get Alexa to say that again.

    Actually, there were still stables near Central Park at least into the '60's and horse drawn carriages for tourists to ride.  Sanitation workers with a cart and a shovel would clean up.

    No, not then…well, maybe. You mean 1860’s right?










    Just messing with you. ;)



  6. My Mom taught me so many things it would be impossible to list them. 
    One thing she taught me that made very little impression but had a big impact was that Hot Wheels track pieces make very effective what we called “Switch Paddles” when we were kids. Those things sting like crazy when used for corporal punishment. 
    Unfortunately all of our Hot Wheels track works disappeared one night in a storm…

    They made a lot of money by stretching the franchise from the original three movies out to nine. People have debated the quality of latter editions for years. 

    The first two are the only ones I saw which so I have no dog in this discussion except listening to my kids debate all nine. They are passionate on all sides. 

    Thank you. 

    I liked the first Star Wars movie. I also read the book for that movie. I saw the second movie, but none of the others. I guess I am a Trekkie. 
    Honestly, I thought the complaints about later Star Wars movies would have been about PC or political reasons. 

    Star Trek Discovery, while a good series is a bit too PC in regards to LGBTQ issues. I call it “The Coming Out’ Star Trek series”.
    Star Trek “Strange New Worlds” left the PC issues out of the series. I like this one just a little bit more than “Discovery”. 
    If someone asked me what my favorite Star Trek series is I couldn’t define just one. I love them all and all for different reasons. 

    I keep saying that I am going to watch all the Star Wars movies, but I haven’t gotten around to it yet.
