iPhone 7 ios 10.1.1 killed my phone

01 Nov

So in today’s information abundant world, when you are without a phone for a couple hours you get all flustered wondering whats going on in the digital world as the phones have become our source of information and communication. Yesterday I decided to update my iPhone 7 plus to 10.1.1. and well the update got to 98% and stalled, however I was able to use my apple watch to receive and send text messages. I ended up not having the phone from 3pm until around 10 am this morning, almost a full day with no phone! And, most importantly I survived lol! I really enjoyed not having the phone, and it was great to be consumed by all this data for nearly 24 hours. I must admit I went out with friends and the photos taken on the Android phones looked like photos from the first generation iPhone. Folks stop bitching an get an iphone 7, just the camera alone is worth it and the enhanced security compared to *cough* *cough* Android.

Cigars for Celebration – Arturo Fuente Opus X

Years ago when my military friends arrived safely back home we would celebrate by drinking whiskey and smoking cigars. I stopped smoking celebratory cigars years ago after my grandfather passed away from lung cancer. He was a heavy smoker back in his day and also worked in the coal mines, and a GM factory at final paint inspection for pickup trucks. One of my best friends was in town and wanted a cigar so I agreed since it’s been so many years, and lit one up. We didn’t just choose any, it’s always been Arturo Fuente Opus X brand cigars that we smoke and wow they are awesome! They are pricey from $15 up to $90 a cigar but well worth it if you want a great burning cigar. I highly recommend trying them out. We enjoyed them so much that we smoked again the next night he was in town, and today is his birthday, does this call for 3 nights in a row? We shall see.
