Pho Barr and Family . . .

We were on our way up to Katy a little before 11, to introduce Brandi, et al, to their Pho Barr location. which is only a couple of miles down the Westpark Tollway from their home.

Like our Webster location, this Katy location is located in a strip mall, and strangely, right next door to a Thai restaurant, the same as ours down here.

First up, they brought us a couple of orders of their Grilled Pork Spring Rolls with their Spicy Peanut Sauce.

Really crunchy and delicious as always.

Jan got her usual Grilled Chicken Vermicelli Bowl, but in this case, it was done with white meat chicken, rather than the dark meat they use down in Webster. Jan likes both, but white meat a little better.

Brandi had the same thing, but with the Grilled Ribeye instead.

Lowell went in a different direction, with the Grilled Chicken Rice Plate, complete with a Sunnyside Up Egg like this.

For my part, I stayed the course with my usual Pho Ga, which means white meat chicken.

Everyone agreed it was all really good, and that we’ll probably eat here again when we’re back in the area.

All the dishes here were the same as our local Pho Barr, but a little different, I guess due to different chefs.

Then it back over to Brandi’s so I could install the HP 4650 printer/scanner that I was giving Landon. I’m upgrading to a HP 6978 which should be here this Wednesday.

Later, heading home, we made a detour by the Katy Trader Joe’s so Jan could pick up some of her favorite stuff. Hopefully they’ll get one down in our area someday soon.

After that, and almost home, we made a HEB stop at our local one for a few things for dinner next week, finally getting back to the rig about 4:30.

A really nice day.

We’ve gotten a lot comments and questions about Streaming so I thought I give you some more information about it.

Starting at the Home screen you can choose which app you want to use to stream.

Firestick TV 1

Then, in the case of YouTubeTV you can chose to watch Live TV, selecting from a list of channels.

Firestick TV 2

This list is customizable, showing only the channels you want to see, and in the order you want to see them.

And when you do select a show to watch, you get this choice.

Firestick TV 5

If the show is already on, you can select ‘Start from beginning’ and do just that.

Or you can join it live and in progress.

If you go to the Library, you can see all the shows you have selected to DVR. And you can set an unlimited number to record, even at one time.

In our case we’re recording 176 shows right now.

And as I mentioned, when you set a program to record, you get every season it was on the air.

Firestick TV 4

As you can see, when you set Law & Order to record, you get all 20 seasons of reruns, plus the new 21st season of first runs.

Let me know if you have any more questions.

A few days ago I posted this photo of Jan’s Flamingo Flamboyance, showing the two new additions.

But as I mentioned, you can’t really see all the flock hiding in the back, so I took this one from the side.

Some of them flutter, some spin, and some light up at night. Though the effect of that is somewhat lost because of the streetlight right out in front of us.

But if Jan’s happy, I’m happy.

Thought For The Day:

Sometimes being an adult is like looking both ways before crossing the street and then getting hit by an airplane.
