Anyone else experiencing this? My Google Pixel XL has terrible battery life since 9 Pie. Something about the display. Adaptive brightness off, and I have to turn it up to 70%, where I used to run at about 35-40% for same display intensity.

This is the view about 5 minutes ago, standing on the balcony outside my home office. And this is why we moved to Lincoln City, Oregon.

Me: "Each of the computers in my office has a purpose."

Wife: "I'm just saying that having that many computers is an anomaly."

Me: "Well, I have friends who have as many computers as I do."

Wife: "Your friends are anomalies, too."

No matter which social network you're on, following a diverse group of people helps you taking a peek at the other side of your personal filter bubble.

You don't have to agree with everything and everyone, but please, at least try to listen to people and their opinions.

It will help you appreciate your own life, and may just make you a little wiser.

In the hotel lobby just now, I picked up some laundry soap and asked the lady at the front desk to charge it to my room. She pecked at the keyboard a bit, and said, “Oops, I typed my password wrong. Sorry for the delay.”
I said, “No problem!”
Then, while she was typing, I kidded with her and said, “Your password is abc123.” She just smiled. The other lady at the front desk snapped her head around to look at me. Her mouth fell open. Then she said, “That was my last password. I just changed it yesterday.”
