On Almost Buying a Samsung Galaxy Note 7

I almost bought one of those exploding Samsung Galaxy Note 7 phones.

A few months ago I dropped my iPhone 6 and cracked the glass along the top edge. It didn't make the phone unusable, but it lost its cool factor significantly. Then I was reading about the upcoming iPhone 7 and how it was mostly an evolutionary design, perhaps not a ton of difference from the iPhone 6s, and not a revolutionary new design. So I asked around to find out what peoples' favorite Android phones were, and everybody seemed to love the Galaxy Note phones. And the Note 7 in particular, had a cool slightly-bigger screen that goes all the way edge-to-edge on the device.

On Ithaca and Bugs



Greetings from Ithaca, New York.

Need any bugs? Bugs are everywhere here in Ithaca. Flies, mosquitos, gnats, spiders, crickets, they all love us and want to come live in our home. Our tiny chihuahua is terrified of the bugs, but our other dog will chew on them upon request.

Everything is a .9 mile walk from our home.

Parts of it are flat, unless you want to go to Cornell, then it's straight uphill, on streets at scary angles, and that's before there's any snow and ice.

The falls are pretty, though.
