    OC-No Topic

    Here it is folks; the thread where anything goes, and where no deviation of topic can ever derail!

    I've been giving DJ a hard time lately and felt I needed to make it up to him somehow, and then it hit me!

    Ha! I've just been trying to figure out how these things work, mainly Pandora. I can get a new CD player for cheap that has all the ports and Pandora built in. Never heard of Spotify. I'm totally new to this kinda stuff.

    I've been listening to Bob FM, lol, and the Alt station that's put out by iheart radio or whatever, the one that has the Sixx Sense.

    In the past couple years I've started getting a headache after drinking just a few beers. Anyone else? Ever heard of that? Go ahead and call me a wuss or whatever, but seriously.

    So what do you need for that? A receiver and a subscription, then the receiver broadcasts to your car's stereo?

    I'm interested in learning about these different services (Spotify, Pandora, etc), so please chime in with your experiences.

    I was just at my next job talking with the homeowners and they were raving about Spotify. I don't know, I think if I get the Pandora enabled deck I'll probably go with that for now, still need to figure out how it works, tho.

    I'm on board with you there. A mixed station would give my button pushing finger a rest.

    I'm on the same boat with Pandora, not sure if I should go premium? So far only a Floyd and Metallica stations lol.

    Working from home, I don't need satellite radio in my car, but do I get promo emails!! Daily!

    Same here, with any alcohol, maybe because I drink so rarely now? I've never had an issue but I could drink, and keep up with just about anyone, always socially though.

    Not sure I can do that any more, but it is a guaranteed head ache, even with just 2 beers.

    I like spodify over pandora. Blue tooth, phone, and a nice portable speaker is pretty damn nifty. I do a lot of camping and rarely watch tv. This combo is a convenient source of entertainment for just about anywhere.

    Net and I were discussing this amongst ourselves since y'all took so long to chime in.

    If you want to listen to internet radio (Pandora, Spotify, etc) on your car stereo you'll sill need to have your phone function as the receiver of the wireless signal thru your wireless provider, which will use data minutes unless you're playing songs you've got stored on your device. Your phone can communicate with your stereo via Bluetooth or cable. Internet radio can be free or paid monthly subscription.

    SiriusXM requires the use of a satellite radio tuner that sends the signal to your car stereo, but there's also a way to access SiriusXM content thru an internet or data connection. And of course you'll need to pay for a subscription. I'm still a bit foggy on the details.

    Spotify is definitely worth the money if you listen to a lot of music. I think I pay around $11-12 a month. Unlike pandora, you can search for any song by any artist. You can listen to entire albums and skip around. Its like have a 10,000 disk changer on your phone or tablet. I love siriusxm, too. I haven't even turned on a terrestrial radio in years.

    Yeah, Spotify sounds like the way to go. I wonder if they have any Dick's Picks?

    There is plenty of obscure stuff Spodify doesn't have but then neither do the other similar services.

    I have maybe 6 or 7 of them on CD, not sure if I'd need any more since I rarely listen to the those. I'll be on the road here in a few days, and that'll be a good time to listen.

    Cool, thanks! I'm not sure if I'll try to connect to anything right away, but Spotify will be the one I try first!

    I've read similar statements; they all have gaps in their libraries, but that's ok because it'll be better than the same songs over and over again on the local yokel radio stations I have now.

    Google Play music. $10/mo and all those youtube commercials? Gone! Can play without cell signal also. Can switch back and forth between the music video and just the music. And it comes with youtube "red" but that looked dumb to me.

    Two of those apply to me at 43.

    I can still pass up a bathroom until I know it's time to head in.

    Cool, I'll look into that one too!

    BTW, I'll be out there Friday evening, so it might be too hot to ride. Tentatively planning a ride Saturday morning with mtbr member 007.

    I just drove my daughter from San Diego to LAX for her flight back to England.

    Total R/T driving time: 4.5 hrs. I feel like I just made the Kessel Run in less than 12 parsnips. It was all I could do to stay out of the way of people doing 90.

    We need more eclipse days, or something.

    I can only manage to eat about 1-2 parsnips per hour, less than 12 in 4.5 hrs is crazy!


    I just spent ~ 12 hrs on the 101/405 over 3 days (6 34mi commutes), glad to be back home far away from all that!

    Thanks anyway, but I already have a stalker.

    JK, Stronger flavor or more caffeine? I'm pretty sure the dark roasts are generally considered stronger, but ultimately the strength comes from how strong you brew it, not necessarily what kind of beans you use.

    I really like dark roasts. It's pretty much all I drink.

    If you compare commercial brands, Starbucks is far and away the strongest and most caffeine.

    Caffeine strength. I was in a Starbucks last week and needed to wake up. I asked the barista which one of the three they had was the strongest caffeine wise. She said it was the light roast since the darker the roast the more caffeine will have been roasted out. I asked at a gas station a few days later and was told the darker roast was stronger. At the store today I asked another Starbucks barista and she said lighter=stronger, but it depends on a lot of other factors as you mentioned above.

    I'll just have to try the light roast and see. Tried some Dunkin Donuts stuff last week and thought it was pretty good. I think I'm shifting into a serious coffee phase. Gonna look into a new coffee maker too, tired of the paper filters.

    To answer your question here's the short version of an article.

    "If you measure your coffee by scoops, light roasted coffee will have more caffeine. Since the beans are denser than a darker roast. However if you weigh out your scoops, darker roasts will have more caffeine, because there is less mass. What should also be noted is that Arabica beans vary in levels of caffeine depending on the plant species."

    "Myth be damned. Depending on how ground coffee is measured, we find only a minimal variance in caffeine content with dark and light roasts."

    Get an Aeropress. It makes coffee as good as fancy $2000 machines. You'll also need some kind of grinder. Combine that with purified/filtered water and freshly brewed/ground beans and it'll blow your mind.

    Oh, I thought we were supposed to look at your photo and somehow figure out which urn had the strongest.

    Our coffee maker blew out a couple of weeks ago. I was gone most of last week and thought my wife would buy a new one while I was gone but nope, still boiling the water in the hot-water-for-tea contraption and then pouring it over the grounds in the coffee maker. Bought a new one Saturday.

    Yep, I thought dark was stronger. Did you really think the guy in the gas station would know? Maybe it was the one that had been sitting undrunk the most days?

    How do you bring in the changes - How do you be somewhere you belong. I do this...

    Though some songs are hard to be taken off from my mind, all from the 90’s as I had already posted on the other threads. I find in bringing my own styles as in the ‘Somewhere I belong’ line I mentioned in the other post. And one way I do that is by bringing home new custom drapery from a few modern drapery solutions available online. Some even provide calculators for measuring the length that would be needed and also the costs for different material, colour and fleet types. As the Christmas is nearing, it means long family visits are gonna happen, and that is when I usually do the customization to my window interiors and doors, so that the visitors are always treated with a new home experience every year.

    You know, in any other thread this would just be spam. Strangely, it's somehow perfect here.

    That's deep.

    We all want to be somewhere we belong, though sometimes we're afraid to bring in the change. It never occurred to me that custom drapes are the answer. Or beer.

    Good quality dark chocolate. It's great for cravings and it's good for you. (when eaten in the appropriate quantities). At least 72% Cacao, I like Lindt 85, good bang for the buck. There's lots of other good ones though.

    In French it is 'doobla vay' In German it is 'Vay"... a clue maybe? (The insular Brits always hated the French and Germans, and vice versa)

    I was always taught to write the letter as 2 U's in handwriting class

    And if 22 is called "twenty-two", and 33 is called "thirty-three", why isn't 11 called "tenty-one"?

    I think the people I'm working for right now just did the Whole30. I'm probably at around 30 days of not eating wheat stuff and I feel so much better! No way I'm going without sugar and caffeine, tho!

    Going without sugar is tough. Until you try, most of us have no idea how pervasive it is... it is slipped into EVErYTHING!!! Coffee is allowed, but no sugar or dairy in it. I just have it with Almond milk and that's OK. I've gotten to quite like it...

    I averaged 10hrs a day for 5 days. The only way I was able to stay awake was by nibbling on beef jerky. I stopped at Charlie Brown Farms in Littlerock, CA and picked up a few bags of jerky, one was called "Ring of Fire", that one sure woke me up, lol!

    I was just looking at the Whole30 diet and half the stuff I eat is not allowed: black beans, oats (granola), CORN, rice, cheese, and a little milk in my coffee.

    Since I've eliminated bread I've almost no digestive issues and rarely feel the acid indigestion like I did after eating anything in a bun. I've also felt very energetic after reducing my portion sizes and eating less more often. I don't think I could do the Whole30, but maybe I could go without one thing at a time to see if it has any affect, or not and just keep going and feeling good the way I'm eating?

    Did you have any issues that prompted you to try this diet?

    No especial issues other than the fact that my wife and I have been eating quite unhealthy lately. Too much pizza and cake for desserts! She decided she needed to do something drastic, and this seemed like a good way to hit the restart button. I went along as it is difficult for one partner to do this without the other.
    The most difficult thing has been in the time it takes to prepare the food, but that has got easier as we have progressed. The inevitable sugar cravings are less than they were, and we both feel that it is worth keeping it up to a degree after the 30 days are over. (in 3 days!) We're going to try and reintroduce things gradually to see what effect they have on us. There will inevitably be a non-gradual pizza guzzling in 3 days tho... Oh God! That sounds so good!!!
    It's all Here. Now.

    The most difficult thing has been in the time it takes to prepare the food, but that has got easier as we have progressed. The inevitable sugar cravings are less than they were, and we both feel that it is worth keeping it up to a degree after the 30 days are over. (in 3 days!) We're going to try and reintroduce things gradually to see what effect they have on us. There will inevitably be a non-gradual pizza guzzling in 3 days tho... Oh God! That sounds so good!!!
    After what I said yesterday; I did feel a little acidy after breakfast this morning. I had some of my burrito filler (rice, corn, and refried black beans) along with pulled pork, garlic, pickled jalapeno, and eggs, so maybe tomorrow I'll substitute the filler with baked potato and see what happens.

    I've never really been a sweets/desert eater, I'd much rather have more of the savory than sweet, but I do like my ice cream right before bed! I'll have to look further into the recipes and see if I can try it out at least, a quick look shows some really tasty looking food!

    Have fun stuffing your face with pizza, lol!

    I had pizza tonight. A white pizza with ricotta cheese and a basil pesto sauce plus two glasses of merlot. I ended that meal with a pint of Haagen Dazs Belgium chocolate ice cream with dark Belgium chocolate swirled throughout. It was my spoil me night.

    We the people ... Security Alarm Monitoring Service- something I put in Money on recently. :)

    Hi had anyone thought of having a home monitoring system. Even though neighbourhood is decent and helpful too, one should really consider having one. I have this plan to install one at home, as a sense of responsibility, over the basic one already installed. The security alarm monitoring service helped me with the procedures and am now 24 hrs protected with the service, but the service providers offers more options. They say, I can be relieved that my home and other properties and family and myself are being monitored for any issues that we face. They also provide medical assistance in case of emergencies, by sending in a signal to the central station through just a press on a button, so that appropriate actions can be taken immediately. It came possible with the personal emergency response system they could install thus covering us not only with the security from being burgled but also from risks of medical emergencies, by opening a two way communication channel with the trigger of the button. I just am confused in having the whole package service or just the basic security system. I prefer the whole security alarm monitoring function as it can provide more service, but in the forum I came across some issues of both the phone comm link too being cut off, when the power is cut off and so… Is there any issues I should look forward to when installing the PERS and does this block the entire service.
    Jones, Norbert
