    Anyone Need Tickets to Saints/Texans Pre-Season Game?

    I'll definitely consider them and ask around too. Wasn't able to make the game originally, but now it seems like we might be able to make it! Thanks for posting this.

    New Star Trek?

    Luv'd the first reboot, the second was meh

    The first re-boot movie was just awesome! It was young, fresh, new and it blew me away because it was fun. Wasn't the best movie I've seen, but for a May summer action flick, I was stunned because some of the Trek movies from the 80's and 90's were boring.

    Then this new movie came out in May of 2013. First, a sequel that came exactly 4 years after the original re-boot was just too long. The fun of the original movie was not fresh in my mind and I felt the new sequel was already old somehow.

    The story of the second movie felt forced. For something so fresh and new, why cram this old sub story into this. When the villain was revealed, I was like "who cares"!

    Hate to say it, but I felt the re-boot had great promise, but I feel it has already worn thin. Unfortunately, because of the advanced parallel Star Trek attempts with our current civilization, the current advancements in technology will probably render the old "submarine in space" concept dated and obsolete. Luckily, there are tons of re-runs and Netflix to feed the occasional fix we need with an episode or two.

    New Star Trek?

    Honestly, JJ Abrams is inconsistent, and maybe even a little overrated. The only good things that he has ever done are Super 8 and Lost. I left the movie feeling like I wanted more. (I was pretty disappointed.)

    The actors/actresses were great, but the script/screenplay felt dry, and somewhat rushed. However, that it just my opinion, don't listen to what I am saying, watch it yourself, and make your own opinion of them movie.

    Car GPS - Which one?

    I use my smartphone - Android phone. Comes with GPS built in and it uses google maps and navigation.

    I previously had a tom tom GPS. Worked a treat, but back then you had to pay for road map updates - like it was $5 for the update. Since smartphones have equal GPS built in, I haven't needed a GPS.

    Random thoughts while tending the yard...

    I'll take some of that action, ... SD to win the AFC West.

    I like the Eagles-home-opener-opponent angle, there's something about that team ... always picked to win the Division & then imploding ... I blame Marty Mornhinweg.

    That is a nice looking garden, ever think about running some cable out there & watching a game? When the Wisconsin winter hits, you could rent space to displaced Packer fans who couldn't make the pilgrimage ... now that's random, .

    It's a lot less work to be a sheep than the shepherd. It's much easier to adopt someone else's opinion than to think for yourself.

    Same thing with "Documentaries" we see on PBS or cable tv. A documentary is produced (funded) by a person or group. That group always has an agenda. Fortunately most have an educational/historical purpose, while others attempt to re-write history.

    Getting the "scoop" depends heavily on favorability, which depends heavily on historical news concerning the entity that the station/newspaper wants the insider info from.

    Typically a news station/paper models the views of their Editor in Chief, or owner.
