One of my favorite things with iOS 10 so far is the notification screen is much cleaner and nicer. Each one of the notification items has the icon of the app it belongs to. It's very nice to see them on the list on the phone screen. Also, while it was a part of iOS 9, I'm finally using the Do Not Disturb function. So nice for the 30+ alerts I get each night not turning on my phone screen each time. So far, I like the update. I upgrade my iPad first then did my phone a week later. For my wife, I've only updated her iPad mini 2. She had a 5C and I want to wait another week or so before we update her phone. She has a 5th gen iPad touch that's stuck at iOS 9.3.5, which is actually nice since she only uses it for music anymore.

That's me. I need some type of food in the morning. The early morning fasting is hard.

Nice TBT pic. Feet first and nose plugged is the way to go.

What happened to cherry flavored options? I used to see those all the time when my daughter was Nathan's age. I get the need for an unflavored version, though. Would be nice to have an option like that for those times when you want to mix it with other items he will eat/consume.

I used to get that way without my morning coffee. I can actually wait till I get to the office or late afternoon for a Starbucks run (or walk, in my case being downtown)

Happy birthday to Nathan. How the time goes quickly as they grow up.

At least we know that he's not a fan of Future Islands. Was there another music choice he got to hear?

I admit to liking the easy ones. This week, it's a candle wick from Nathan's birthday cake.

15 years is a long time in many things, especially something so tragic that happened to our country. But as KevinAZ said above, that day's memories are still very vivid here.

I like how you tied all of these artists and albums together. I was a big fan of VH with Roth (it was my first concert in September 1982) and I liked the party attitude of the band. But Sammy, who I've never seen in concert (solo or VH), is when I felt VH was a band creating some great music. If I remember right, OU812 is your fav of the Hagar VH albums. Loved the Roth solo albums with Steve Vai. Great songs on Skyscraper. I always liked "Hot Dog and a Shake" funny as it was. Had no idea that P&W was 25 years old. Wow. Great album.

Awesome. Now to hear how you've integrated it into your home.

Nice you got to at least have that last bit of summer at the pool. Sad to hear of the little girl getting injured, but proud of Nathan and his sense of urgency for the girl.

The waterproofing of the Apple Watch and a special Nike edition got me excited. It puts me one step closer to getting an Apple Watch. Not pulling the trigger just yet, though. I promised my current stint with my Fitbit One would last until I lose it. That's karma for this thing is going to find me if it gets lost. Impressed with the iPhone 7 features. Holding off till next year's update (the 7S) and the 10th anniversary of the iPhone. Plus, my 6S Plus is working just fine for me. The headphone port is one that was predicted to be gone, but I like that they included the adapter and that it works with non-headphone devices like Square and PayPal credit card readers. The AirPods are an easy lose, especially if there's nothing to keep them in your ears. I can see a ton of 3rd party accessories for that ear secure once they come out.

Nice to stump us from last week. I'm going to guess your above words are clues and say this week's is a telescope.

That macro pic looked like a Cheeto to me. But fortune cookie is a good macro shot.

How the hell did your son get to be 4. It was just yesterday that he was born. Damn, these kids are growing up quick these days. Happy birthday to Nathan.

Willy Wonka was a childhood memory for me. Then in my teens, it was Young Frankenstein, Silver Streak and Blazing Saddles. Such an icon. 2016 has taken way too many from us this year.

So cool you posted the Baskin Robbins logo and it's embedded "31" It's one of the most well known for clever logo design. Your mention of Illustrator reminds me that I need to use that app more. I'm ok at it, but one our design developers at work is really good at it and runs circles around my meager skills.

I think your analysis of the situation was/is correct. I get her reaction, but it wasn't the correct reaction, IMO. Parents like her need to parent better. Glad you got in another pool day before the season ends.

Count me as someone who didn't know about that Fitbit tracking function. I liked your comment about Nathan's drawing. Now to go check this out.
