Never underestimate an underachiever. We’re capable of less than you think.
I mentioned in a past post that I had purchased the Nvidia K1 as my first Android tablet. It came delivered with the Android 5.1. While the Android 6.0 system was available for upgrade immediately, I elected to hold off.
I had read the Nvidia forums and had seen that those that had taken the upgrade, were having terrible problems to the point that many returned the device for refund.
Recently, the forums have changed, after over 6 months of bitter complaining, to saying the new updates were working well.
After watching for a week, I decided to upgrade. It four hours to install the two updates. It went smoothly and is operating well. None of the problems, previously mentioned, are present.
I still feel that the Nvidia Shield K1 is a good tablet and certainly much cheaper than the similar sized iPad minis.
This post was written on the Nvidia Shield K1.
I can’t be the only person who’s noticed that only flat animals cross the road
I just received the following message from Tom McCormack. His latest container should unload Thursday (June 30) around 8AM. Here is a link to a previous container unloading.
Last news. The driver of the mula is in line waiting to be loaded first thing in the morning.
So you can announce that the loading will start 8AM at the bodaga beside IFARU on Thursday. Any changes will be announced.
Thanks Don Spent all day today with a film crew from TVN.They are waiting to film the unloading.
My life is an open book. But it’s very poorly written and I die in the end.
I hope all turned on the TV and watched the opening of the new canal inauguration. It was a site to see. The immense size of the new container ships is amazing.
Lilliam and I were invited to attend the Embassy’s Independence Day celebration on June 25. They had scheduled it the day prior to the opening of the canal celebration. While we would have liked to attend, we just couldn’t justify the $500+ we would have had to travel to Panama City and spend the night. Still, I appreciate being invited.After church yesterday, we ate with a good friend and spent about two hours talking. It was the first leisurely time the have had together since returning from the US.
Yesterday afternoon, we took supplies to Robert and, prior to going, we stopped at Gelarti’s Ice Cream shop to take him a scoop of ice cream. I chose Oreo and he loved it.
Having a smart phone with Internet connection combined with Magic Jack is almost a necessity if you want to communicate with people or companies or government agencies in the US or Canada. I couldn’t do without it.
I used Magic Jack on and we were able to call Robert’s sister in California and he was able to talk to her for about 20 minutes. Lilliam was certain he had tears in his eyes, so the chat must have been a good one.
I always enjoy watching Lilliam make her rounds talking to all of the residents in Hogar Santa Catalina. She stops and talked to almost every one of Robert’s neighbors. I am lucky to have such a giving person by my side. It wasn’t always that way and I appreciate it.
All in all it was a fantastic day. Watched the canal inauguration. Attended church. Dined and chatted with a great friend. And visited Robert and made his day with Oreo ice Cream.
It just doesn’t get better than this.
