It's rather hilarious that this thread is ranking high enough in search results to bring in so many random new accounts to evangelize the virtues of becoming an insurance agent.
The story of the young boy at the Disney park in FL is both sad and horrific. My thoughts go out to the family. http://gawker.com/divers-recover-body-of-toddler-attacked-by-alligator-at-1782054153 Also sad is the first comment to this story on Gawker. Yes, there are Alligators in FL and they sometimes are found in places that humans would rather them not be. This shouldn't be surprising to anyone.
Sony's press conference was fantastic. I don't think I have seen them more confident and sure of themselves. It was all games, games and games. Sold the public on VR without having to even talk much about VR. It's going to be a great year.
I'm all for a company focusing on refinement instead of flashy new features, but I found the iOS 10 announcement a dud. It's really telling that they have chosen to highlight things like Donald Duck stickers, doodles and larger emoji. http://www.apple.com/ios/ios10-preview/ I'm glad they are putting serious thought into reworking Watch OS, but nothing about these changes will make them compelling purchases. Right now I am not really sure what Apple could do for the next...
I think it's important to keep in mind that hand stitching is itself not always going to yield superior construction. There are makers who hand stitch leather goods with sub-pair craftsmanship and machine stitching can yield really good results. This is of course not directed at anyone mentioned recently in this thread, but I think it's important to keep in mind when comparing makers. By default, hand stitching is not always worth spending more on.
Good luck with that, considering how many people use VISA check cards. Even if they just single out the credit cards, that's s lot of irritated customers to deal with. Not defending VISA and the fees. Just don't see how the retailers in mass can drop them at this this point.
The flash/supergirl crossover was really good! I'm saying that having never seen another Supergirl episode. Looking forward to the show landing on the CW.
