So sorry for the loss of your friend, Bill! Good job on the piece about the jail. It blows my mind to think of incarceration as a business, but I think you hit the nail on the head with that story! I've subscribed to your YouTube Channel! =)

beer while you shop?!? where is that? is it a bar or you just go to the beer aisle and buy beer lol?

It's in the beer and wine section. Kind of like a beer den if you will. Yes. They have the beer on tap and one could pay for a glass (or cup) of beer to drink while shopping. There's even cup holders on the buggies now. Likewise, the Lowe's foods have free coffee in a couple of our locations, so if your wife wants to go in and do shopping and you really don't want to shop, you can sit out in the "lobby" area, have a cup of joe, and sit and read the paper or something.

the stores i went to in FL have WiFi. I haven't run across a store locally to actually shop that has it other than lowes home improvement.

I haven't really paid much attention to who has WiFi and who doesn't. I mean, I know Starbucks all have WiFi, McDonalds, some of the other "fast food" restuarants. I would think most of the grocery stores may have public wifi, but we also have a lot of Spectrum Hotspots around.

Lowe's Foods down here in Greensboro has been doing the online shopping, and it's great. You can either pay per visit or you can do a one time yearly payment which is discounted. I love it, especially when we're both tired and don't feel like dragging a 3 year old through the grocery store. It also worked out great when we needed to shop for holiday meals.

I heard the lowes in patrick county still doubles coupons up to $0.99. Is that the case there? thats an awesome deal if that works

We are so awful when it comes to using coupons, that I'm not sure how that works, but I wouldn't doubt it. Honestly, Aldi's is starting to put a hurtin' on the area grocery stores, because the prices are sooooo much better and you can get just about anything you need and want from there. So, for places like Lowe's or Harris Teeter (owned by Kroger) to counter, they have started up the shop online, pick up thing, as well as being able to buy a cup of beer and drink it while you shop. They realize they can't compete head to head with Aldi, so they're doing other stuff to keep customers. I'll admit, if they ever built another Aldi closer to us in Oak Ridge, I'd never go to any other grocery store.

That you're really thirsty can't decide which one to start with?  ;D

The only saving grace that makes me happy about the Eagles winning is that 2 of their coaches are Hokie alums:

Eugene Chung (Offensive Line/Tight Ends Coach) is a Hokie Hall of Fame offensive lineman.

Keith Gray is a Strength and Conditioning Coach and a former linebacker at Virginia Tech. He is also a Stuart boy.

So. Those are the only reasons I'm slightly happy about the Eagles winning.

GO HOKIES!

Yes, I saw that too! Luckily now, I can go back hating on the Eagles!

They did say "shortly" after the Super Bowl. So, what's the definition of shortly after the Super Bowl? 10 minutes? 15 minutes? 2 hours? 2 days?

I didn't get to watch the halftime show. I figured I can always go back and catch it on YouTube. I watched the first half of the game over at my in-laws, and got home in time to watch the second half, so no halftime for me. I thought P!nk did an excellent job singing the National Anthem - she had been battling the flu all week!

Great game! I'm a Redskins fan, so naturally, I'm not supposed to care much for the Eagles (and normally I don't), but I was glad to see them take down the evil empire! I also loved hearing their coach give his Lord and Savior Jesus Christ praise on national television (along with other Eagles players doing the same.) Much respect for that!

I am going to be curious as to what happens to Brady and the Patriots now. There's talk of Gronk retiring. The Patriots are losing both coordinators. Brady will be 41 years old next season, there's discourse between Bellichick and Kraft. Of course, every time we think we're about ready to see the end of the Patriots, they always come back, but we know their run is quickly coming to an end. Father time waits for no one.

We have a bunch down here in Greensboro. Then we have magnet schools and schools for science or schools for art, etc....honestly, it's confusing! I am a product of public school and that's actually something that my wife and I have been struggling with. She would like to put our son into private school when he's ready to go to school, and I'm like, "You gotta have money for that!" Don't know how it's all going to work out!

Is Carlisle the only private school in the area?

I think a lot of people get directed to youtube channels by friends or people who have similar interest.

I'm not 100% sure how youtube searches work, but most things like that use tags or keywords people use in searching to identify a certain topic. For example - If I upload a clip from the Daytona 500, I may use the following Tags: NASCAR, Stock Car Racing, Automotive, Fast Cars, Auto Racing, Automobile Crashes, Racing, Daytona 500, Great American Race, Dale Earnhardt, ETC...

You may want to build an audience on another form of social media that would view things from youtube. I look at youtube as a platform that hosts video. I don't subscribe to other channels unless it's one i really really like. I'm more likely to "LIKE" something on FB or twitter.

It depends on your subject and the audience you are trying to attract.

Well, for instance, my channel is about sleep apnea. I do plan to build a second channel that will be more comical, as I'm sure sleep apnea is kind of a dry subject. However, I've found that going to places online, such as forums dedicated to sleep apnea or subreddits that deal with sleep apnea, you tend to run up against rules that state you cannot promote another site, such as your YouTube site for instance. People are very fickle when it comes to self-promotion, even though I'm not selling anything. It doesn't cost anybody anything except for a few minutes of their free time to watch a video or two. And the weird thing is, it's those who post regularly on sleep apnea sites that don't want to watch the videos. You'd think they would be all for someone trying to get the word out.

I can't imagine any site who doesn't operate at a profit wouldn't allow you to post the videos. I would maybe consider doing more how to videos with tips or interviews with doctors or other people with sleep apnea. Maybe develop a standard set of questions to ask the person your. Like "Seven about Sleep" make it fun.

I mean, I'm not going to join a board just to post videos and never join in on active discussion. In fact, I would post the videos in a way in which I would hope it would develop into active discussion. The great thing with Reddit is, the posts are voted up or down, so if people really enjoyed the video and or the topic you posted, it stays on the front page. More eyes on the post and the video. Even Facebook will "hide" your post from your friends if you specifically post your YouTube links. You have to be sneaky about how you post links to your YT videos on Facebook. I just figured that out. I didn't realize Facebook didn't like people posting YT videos.
