The shirt is from Hobbs Brewery, which is hopefully opening in January 2019, and apparently a unique item. Many people asked how I got it… it was a Birthday present from my sister.
OtterBox, founded in 1998, is an innovator of protective solutions for mobile handheld technology. They offer a range of cases that fit every taste and lifestyle. Their cases use patented technology that provides superior protection for smartphones. With their innovative engineering group, dozens of patents, and robust sales and marketing teams, OtterBox is growing and expanding and plans to continue this trend.
They’ve got technology covered.
Cases, which are designed to attach to, support, or otherwise hold a mobile phone, are popular accessories for many phones, particularly mainstream smartphones.
Case measures are based on the display inches (e.g. 5 inch display). There are different types:
Pouches and sleeves
Flip cases and wallets
Screen protection and body films
Drop and shock protection
Holsters are commonly used alone for devices that include rubberized padding, and/or are made of plastic and without exposed rigid corners.
A Standing case improves user experience, being specially recommended for multimedia, videos and audio. Folio case is a combination case and stand, and may include a keyboard (USB for OTG smartphones or bluetooth keyboard).
Heavy duty cases are designed to protect from drops and scratches.
Skins and design covers can serve for protection and personalization. These are the result of the relatively “naked” designs produced by manufacturers such as Apple, where the metal and glass components of the device are exposed and vulnerable to damage. They are distinct from holsters, in allowing use of the device while in the case, but in many instances include a belt clip or other device giving it the functionality of a holster. They are made of hard plastic, rubber, or in the newer market adhesive-backed vinyl pieces. Vinyl skins can be ordered on many websites and come pre-cut to fit your cell phone or another electronic device. Vinyl material may be calendared or cast, with the latter being more expensive. Calendared vinyl is expected to only be used for short duration while cast vinyl is used on a more long term basis. Calendered vinyl also tends to shrink in the heat, and fade. Cast vinyl avoids these problems, but costs up to 250% more (which still is not high). 3M has manufactured a cast vinyl product that they call “Controltac”. This vinyl cover maintains a more glossy look and provides an air release channel that prevents bubbles during placement. The more popular is the cast vinyl because of the range of designs.
Customized phone cases use custom printing. Different companies have different methods of printing on cases, some utilize sublimation for printing on mobile phone cases, other methods include inkjet printed skins and Dye-Sublimation 3D printing methods.
Some phones have a replaceable cover. A release button on the cover lets it pop off to be replaced with the new cell cover. Phones that lack a replaceable cover can accept a slip on or snap on cover. These come in leather, vinyl, silicone, or hard plastic.
Functional cases can integrate an external battery, a USB, Bluetooth, WiFi keyboard and touchpad mouse in a similar way to tablets.

For more than a month last summer, the general manager of McCormick & Schmick’s Harborside restaurant asked a pest control company to spray for spiders.
When the company didn’t come out, the manager took it upon himself to clear out spider webs from the restaurant and outdoor dining area along the Riverplace Marina. In the process, he was bitten by what he believed was a venomous brown recluse spider.
That’s all according to a $999,999 lawsuit filed last week by general manager Scott E. Clement against Ecolab, based in St. Paul, Minnesota.
Ecolab spokesman Roman Blahoski declined comment.
The suit states that the restaurant had an ongoing contract with Ecolab for pest elimination services and that included “proactive prevention,” representatives available 24 hours a day for all seven days of the week and a promise to respond to the restaurant within 24 hours if immediate attention was requested.

The suit states that Clement called several times last July and August about the need to spray for spiders but got no in-person response.
While the lawsuit states that it was a brown recluse spider that bit Clement and other Oregonians have claimed they were attacked by the species, experts say Oregon doesn’t have that type of spider here.
The state is home to about 500 species of spiders, with three that can cause serious health problems for humans, once bitten: the hobo, yellow sac and black widow. The Oregon Department of Agriculture says the black widow is probably the most dangerous.
In any case, the spider that bit Clement sent him to the hospital for three days with a fever, nausea and weakness, according to his lawsuit.
He missed more work while recovering, losing $3,000 in wages, two weeks of vacation pay worth $4,500 and a $3,000 bonus, the suit says. His medical bills and related costs total $25,000, his suit says.
Clement is seeking hundreds of thousands more for pain and suffering.
Portland attorney John Spencer Stewart, who is representing Clement, declined to share more details about the case.

Only a person in Texas would think of this:
From the county where drunk driving is considered a sport, comes this true story.
Recently a routine police patrol parked outside a bar in Austin, Texas. After last call the officer noticed a man leaving the bar so apparently intoxicated that he could barely walk.
The man stumbled around the parking lot for a few minutes, with the officer quietly observing.
After what seemed an eternity in which he tried his keys on five different vehicles, the man managed to find his car and fall into it. He sat there for a few minutes as a number of other patrons left the bar and drove off.
Finally he started the car, switched the wipers on and off–it was a fine, dry summer night, flicked the blinkers on and off a couple of times, honked the horn and then switched on the lights. He moved the vehicle forward a few inches, reversed a little and then remained still for a few more minutes as some more of the other patrons’ vehicles left.
At last, when his was the only car left in the parking lot, he pulled out and drove slowly down the road.
The police officer, having waited patiently all this time, now started up his patrol car, put on the flashing lights, promptly pulled the man over and administered a breathalyzer test.
To his amazement, the breathalyzer indicated no evidence that the man had consumed any alcohol at all!
Dumbfounded, the officer said, “I’ll have to ask you to accompany me to the police station. This breathalyzer equipment must be broken.”
“I doubt it”, said the truly proud Texan. “Tonight I’m the designated decoy.”
