Out of the Blue

We seem to be getting a reprieve from a week of predicted rain today. This is good news for me, as I picked up a seed mix to patch some of the bald spots in our yard, and this gives a chance to go throw some of it around to take advantage of the downpours when they presumably return. Having a couple of big dogs means never having a picture-perfect lawn, but that's never been a high priority for us; but it would be nice to get a little better coverage in some spots, if for nothing else than to avoid the pups tracking as much mud into the house during spates of weather like this.

Best "Budget" Blu-Ray player? May 6, 2009, 10:47

I have a couple Best Buy gift cards and think I am going to use them to get a Blu-Ray player.

Been looking at this one:

Anyone have one? Any other "budget" Blu-Ray player have such highly-rated picture quality? I was looking at the Samsung 1600 and LG 370 as well but the flip-down fronts on both are not something I care for when adding memory (the Panasonic uses a SD card instead of USB drive - nice!); the top-mounted buttons on the Samsung really won't work for my setup and the LG seems to have worse picture quality on upscaling regular DVDs.

Thanks!
