When a person is not breathing, permanent brain damage begins after 4 minutes and death in 6 minutes after that. Can you count on help arriving before that time? Learning proper CPR techniques is easy and you can learn it in 30 minutes at CPR Test Center.

Receiving my Echo
« on: September 19, 2016, 07:19:58 am »
Just ordered my Echo for the UK released on 28th Sept.

Can someone point me to some good sites / hints / tips for using.

I have Philips Hue Lights
Harmony one and harmony hub
Also a Pioneer AV receiver that has bluetooth and a network port.
I have a PC that I run Kodi etc connected to the TV via HDMI

Anything cool I can do with all this? 

Thanks

Kodi is not an app available via Amazon; it has to be "sideloaded" in the FireTV.  Lots of videos on YT showing how; some work and some don't.  Took some tinkering, but I do have Kodi running on two sticks.
