Product Review: Samsung Galaxy Discover S730G (mp3/Podcast Player)

Bryan Hill's Blog - 5 hours 14 min ago
A few weeks back, I was doing our grocery shopping as I do weekly. Something I do regularly during these excursions, is browse the clearance shelves. On this particular trip I found this prepaid cell phone at Walmart. It is a Samsung Galaxy Discover and it normally is prices around the $80 mark and  I was taken back as I notice the red tag...$10.00. I quickly checked the specs, it had Android, it had Wifi, and it was small. Those are three things that quickly qualified for a portable listening device (MP3/Podcast Player and more), not really a phone. So here are the specs of this device:
Processor: Single Core Arm Cortex-A5 800Mhz.System Memory: 512Mb RamBuilt in Storage: 4 Gb RamStorage Expansion: MicroSD, up to 32 GB.Battery: 1200 mAh
I won't go into the phone specs, because my intended use won't be using those technologies.
After thinking more about it, this came with a charger and a 4Gb Micro SD card. These two things alone are worth the $10. The added device is just a bonus, right???
This device preforms very well. I use Google Play Music, and create playlists especially for our Praise Band. So every week I change the set-list/playlist and this device automatically downloads the latest changes so I have it in the car or while I clean, or while I shop. I also use it for podcasts, for them I use PocketCasts from Shiftyjelly and have it automatically download the most recent podcast to the device so that I have it in the car, or while I clean or while I shop. As soon as this device sees my WiFi or any other WiFi (that is free) it updates and downloads from these services mentioned.
I place it into Airplane mode and then turn on the wifi when I want to get updates,  Doing this allows the battery to last a couple of days if I need it to. 
Anyways, that's what I do with cheap android phones, but I am kind of a geek. This can also be done with old phones as well.

Product Review: Samsung Dishwasher (DW80F600UTB)

Bryan Hill's Blog - Tue, 01/27/2015 - 6:30pm

We recently purchased a Samsung Dishwasher from Lowe's. It's features range from the stainless steel tub, to it's hard food disposer, it has an adjustable top rack. It comes dressed in all black, and while in operating mode it comes in under 50 decibel at 48. It is quieter then our last Whirlpool which was only 2 plus years old. We appreciate it's Sanitation cycle, which eliminates essentially any need to dry any of the dishes as they come out. (I can't say the same for the Whirlpool that is going to the scrap  yard in a few weeks.) I also enjoy using the delay wash cycle, for when showers are being taken directly after dinner. The dishes are clean by morning....

The price was under $500 at $472.81 which actually was more then $100 dollars less then the piece of scrap we replaced). We did not purchase their suggested install kit, but did need an elbow to fit our supply line to the dishwasher. I'm not sure why that connection is not a standard between manufacturers???? The installation was easy, with the help of a second person.

Model Number: DW80F600UTB
Price: $472.81 (Lowe's were running an appliance sale, they usually run $649)

I would recommend this product to family and friends.

I’m in Love Again, and I Refuse: A Short Essay by Matt Croyle

Official Web Log Of Matt Croyle - Tue, 01/20/2015 - 2:11pm

In life we have certain experiences that change who we are, our being, our inner selves, that sculpt who we ultimately become before we take our last breaths on this planet and venture past the unknown threshold of death. And they’re not just major experiences in life. They can be the smallest of things which build our character, break us down, make us hate, make us love.

Love: there’s a affliction for which there seems no escape. No matter our youth or age it will find us in the strangest and most un-looked for of ways. The most recent era of my life has mostly been free of it. I searched not for it in hopes that I could elude those dreaded times that when falling asleep, and waking, my thoughts were consumed with another human being, longing for them, wanting to be holding them in those moments, wishing beyond all hope I didn’t feel like that because I was too frightened to speak of my feelings, my needs, and my hopes.

It has, again, found me. And while I’ve tried my best to sneak away from any thought or moment in which it would reveal its face to me, it has found a way to do so in the guise of someone I wished it not, someone who is very dear to me. Unfortunately, love does not care for your opinions to whom it entraps you to. It simply exists, and you must accept that you succumb to its power – for it is the most powerful force I have ever known, and to think I can be stronger is a waste.

So, here I am – an unfortunate soul to which love has revealed its face, again, in a person I wish not to lose. However, love has a way of ruining things for me. Because with love breathes jealousy, and with jealousy comes hate, and with hate comes destruction, and with destruction comes death. In turn, love breeds death. Love and loss are so intertwined that one can simply not exist without the other. And it is this knowledge that rips my heart out knowing that if I act on this love, choose to move forward with this feeling, it will ultimately be my downfall again – whether it be immediate rejection, a building of a relationship only to fail, or death itself. Something will end this feeling, and loss is inevitable. The death of something so beautiful in my heart is already written, and cannot be undone.

I will go no further. Lennon once spoke of love being all that you need. Unfortunately, in today’s world, this is not the case. Things other than love I have not to offer, and that makes love a more difficult task, as it already is with doomed outcome. So I pause, in hopes that it will eventually diminish in the absence of with whom my heart now lies. Treat it like a death, without it having lived out its natural course. A tragic moment that never had a chance to blossom to fully live, only after such beautiful seeds had been planted in just a few short years. An enduring Winter. A Springtime that will never come.

Bumps and Bruises

Mid Life Crunches - Mon, 01/19/2015 - 11:15pm
My bumps and bruises for 2015 are carry overs from 2014.  My car hit a deer in early November 2014, and I think it may have aggravated some previous conditions.  Yesterday was the first time I have done any resistance training since the deer accident.  My left wrist was noticeably sore on the pinky side of my hand immediately after I was finished with my work out.  I was using light weights and exercises for my back (lat pull downs, close grip pull downs).  I also did preacher curls with an EZ Bar and curl bench.  My right wrist was only slightly sore.  On my right wrist, my golfer's elbow (tendonitis) was aggravated by the car/deer accident.  Some other previous injuries include left biceps and left shoulder.  Happy New Year!
