So Samsung has a new Note 7? hmmmm
I have a Note 4.  I LOVE that phone.  It has everything I want in a phone except for one thing. It isn't waterproof. 

And here came the Note 5.  and guess what it wasn't waterproof.  So Rodney wasn't interested.  In addition to not being waterproof.  It also had the following features of the Note 4 removed.
Removable Battery, Expandable memory, IR blaster for using it as a remote for the TV etc...

I was looking at a Note 5 in a store and a salesman tried to sell me on it.  He was talking about all the "free" online storage that you would have with the phone.  My response.  So that uses my bandwidth right? and with this "free" storage I lose all these features?  I asked him how he could even talk to me with a straight face at all?  But you get free online storage.  I walked away at this point.

So now Samsung comes out with the Note 7.  Guess what.  It is waterproof and it has expandable storage.  So now I am at this point of.  What do I do???   It is still missing the removable battery and the IR Blaster.  Seriously if it had either of these I would be sorely tempted(read I would probably already own it).  So it is missing two features from the Note 4 and has one new one that the 4 didn't have.  

If only it had an IR Blaster.  


New hotness. 

Old awesomesauce. 

Still think I like the old one better.

One of my favorite places

Lots of water.  Lots of fish.  Rainy drafty cloudy wonderful day.  On this early July day.  We shot some guns, shot off some fireworks,  had roast beef with gravy, hung out with in law's listened to stories of WW2.  And just enjoyed family time.   It is wonderful to be free.
