I’ve been chased by, bitten by, and various other run ins with dogs...

Today was a new one. While our for a run I was chased up onto someone’s porch by some dogs while their jack wagon owner was laughing the whole time.

Don’t get it...

Even I don't drink Bundy! (Anymore😉) It's probably been 15 years since my last one. Goes ok with Coke, just keep away from the OP.

It is a Queensland thing I find.   I really like the OP, all by itself in a glass.

I'm fortunate that almost all dogs like me for some reason.

I obviously don't have that experience with my own species.

I'm 4 hours into watching my grand kids... 4 and 2, with 5 more hours to go. I remember now why having kids is a young people job!

Eclipsed the 900 mile mark running today.

I’ve got nothing on Forrest Gump. But I’m looking to double that in 11 months.

Wait........ You ran 900 miles? TODAY?!

Yep. Took me 3 minutes.

Haha.

Heck no man, 4.5 miles today.

I’d already be around the 2k mark if I didn’t have tot take last year off for the most part.

First run on there is May 24th, 2013.

I’ve had a love/hate relationship with running... mostly hate since I can remember. Got serious about it in 2017/18

That’s awesome! I despise running. If I was hooping, or doing any with a “ball”, etc, I could go, but to just run.... Can’t do it.

Adding to that. If it weren’t for being On call 24/7 I wouldn’t be looking at a phone, but when it goes from 85% to 23% in 15 minutes I’m attached to a charger...

I worked in the cell phone industry for years and over 80% of us had Android phones with a large percent of those being Samsung Notes. I'm using the Note 10 now and the new one will be even better. I'm a Google fanatic and have the Google smart home stuff so I love how everything just integrates perfectly in that ecosystem.

Majority of the problems we had with phones were Apple, but they have an appeal that keeps people coming back for them in droves. Android phones get a bad name because you can find very cheaply made phones that run Android. The problem with them is the hardware though, not the software.

Al, have a very good look at the Pixel 4XL. Very very good droid phone and because it's made for/by Google, it doesn't have all the bloatware that comes with Samsung etc and the carriers.

Did you look at what's eating your battery? I've read numerous articles that Facebook sucks the life out of batteries. My wife deleted the Facebook app on her phone and the battery doesn't drain as fast now. Go to Settings - Battery and scroll down to see which app is using the most battery power. FYI we both have iPhone 6 and running strong.  Also you can have one of the local repair shops put in a new battery - that's a lot less than a new phone and I can think of a lot better things to do with several hundred dollars than buying a new phone.

Background App Refresh destroys battery life. Go to Settings and scroll to the bottom where all 3rd party apps are listed. Click each one and turn off background app refresh. Not only will it save your batter, it will stop eating data. IMG_5772.png

Yup lots of simple things to preserve battery  - including your suggestion plus frequency of email uploads. Let's see now a  new phone or a new driver .....or a set of new Volkeys.....hmmm I wonder which direction I might go.

My 7 iPhone battery died a few months ago. Went to Verizon and looked at all the latest and greatest. Got an iPhone 8, I like the size as same as 7 and battery life great and I didn’t have to sell my GE stock for it.
