Oh, I see why... it's only in Utah. I thought they had locations nationwide. http://www.hammondtoy.com

Stumped us all on the pepper mill. This week's looks like something hydraulic like the bottom of an office chair.

Well, sometimes you have to test the waters to see how well some of these products work. If you ask Dave2, Apple's HomeKit is garbage. I've been looking at the Philips HUE system, which you can control from Echo or Google Home. Once I get comfortable, I will be blogging about my efforts on adding it to our home.

That is an awesome renovation of his bedroom. I like the lights as well as the framed comic books. And that street sign is great.

Wow. It doesn't even look like the same bear (at least to these eyes viewing the photos). Well worn and well loved.

So cool you and Nathan got pics with Geoffrey. I'm sad about the closing of this final retail toy store (I guess Hammond's is still in some places).

Nice ending. And from the sounds of it, no knives or guns were needed, but it was a close one. ;-) My wife now has the Charge HR. Her older Charge, which I was using as a pocket Fitbit (the band came off), stopped holding a charge. I'm now using the One. If I wasn't already using an Apple Watch, I'd opt for the Charge 2. And the Kohl's discount.

I found you through Blogography sometime in 2007 when I started commenting at chillywilly, before Banal Leakage made it's debut. 20 years is a great milestone to celebrate. It always brings a smile to my face when I read "I don’t see it ending anytime soon."

Head not belly. It's as close as I could guess from the macro view.

Emma is an amazing human being and one who has earned my complete and total respect. Her writing is incredible and she has been spot on in going after the policies and establishments that took 17 of her classmates lives. Anyone who comes out against her is just a fear-mongering fool that is afraid to admit that these students are on the right track.

This was the first year in many where I guessed all 6 of the main categories. My wife and I made it a point to see as many of the 9 best picture nominees before March 4th Oscar broadcast night. We saw 8 (missed seeing Phantom Thread). As for Oscar host, Jimmy Kimmel was great (we liked him from last year as well). Who wouldn't have loved being in that theater across the street and having Mark Hamill handing you a package of Sour Patch Kids?

I liked all of the Weekend Update mocking Eric and DJTJ. The picture book from the last one was so good... Eric's response when the book popped up.

The one artist I was totally wanting to see was last year (LCD Soundsystem), but I wasn't able to travel to your neck of the woods for that. With Japandroids, I figured that Sunday was a lock for you. For me, I'm with Eric on Tame Impala, even though I really like Japandroids a lot, too (they have yet to come back to Salt Lake)

Most CVS and Walgreens still provide a film processing service (not sure of the cost per roll). For mailorder and scan to CD, The Darkroom is one that I've heard of before. https://thedarkroom.com/product/35mm-film-developing/

Nope. It connects to an iPhone (or other device that has photos or media) and shows the images. Then you can select what photos you want and it can import them to a local folder on the Mac. https://www.maketecheasier.com/macos-image-capture/ I use it a lot to capture my photos, mostly to make backups. Putting photos back onto an iPhone works as well, but it's tricky to get them back to your Camera Roll. Mostly it just puts them into a photo album.

I do regular backups of my iPhone camera roll to my iMac using the built in app Image Capture. I rarely clean up my photos on my iPhone because I normally have enough room to store thousands of photos. But if the chance that Apple or even my OneDrive does something wacky, I have local copies of them all. While this is not an option you have now, I highly suggest even finding an option to get them to some kind of off loaded place. While my trust in Apple is ok, I don't trust that some deletion will wipe out my photos. I'm not sure how old your Mac is, but Image Capture sees photos from just about any device, regardless how old or new it is. I would give it a try.

Last week's was a great one. This week, I'm going to guess Spiderman's belly from an action figure.

I'm in awe that you got to see Rolling Stones. Still a band I would love to see (the closest I got was actually getting online to get $60 tickets to the last time they were here in SLC, only to get zero tickets). Iron Maiden... I saw them once in 2012. One of my long time favorite bands that I was very happy to see live. I hope they return to the states. Their last visit to SLC was July 2017 and I missed it due to being on a plane heading to Amsterdam. I was actually a bit bummed for the timing.
