Re: Anyone Want Some Grapefruit?

Must be regional Bookworm, because four decades ago riding/walking against direction of traffic was the official rule, then ten years after that, they couldn't decide and changed it every few. I also lived in the Chicagoland/NWIN area. Could be. I grew up in Texas. I know it was discussed that peop...

Re: Hearts and Hooves Day VI: Stallion the Course

And if you want to be super thrifty, you can even buy the candies for next Valentine's Day now, while it's on sale! That way you won't have to worry about forgetting and trying to find something at the last moment! Ewww...unless you bag and freeze the chocolates, they go funky in a year(hence why w...

Re: Anyone Want Some Grapefruit?

As to the bike/pedestrian question: apparently I moved to the state with the most pedestrian deaths per-capita . And going back on topic: I have a landscaping guy coming Saturday to do triage on both the orange and grapefruit tree - and the palm tree (picture of said palm tree here) . Pretty. What'...

Re: Tea talk

That being said: organic is looking like it is no better in terms of safety or environmental impact than non-organic. Sometimes, like the milk I buy, it keeps longer and/or tastes better or whatever. I don’t mind that, those are still valid reasons to buy something. Also, I realize you have allergi...

Re: Anyone Want Some Grapefruit?

When I see cyclists behaving well, I give them all of the rights that they are issued by law, and often will go out of my way to try to assist (slowing so they can move lanes for a turn, etc). Unfortunately, I rarely see this. Most don't even seem to understand how to use arm signals. (The reason a...

Re: Anyone Want Some Grapefruit?

Optimum knife range is the same as optimum handgun range. Who told you such a silly thing? Optimum knife range is from 'in a grapple' to around five or ten feet. Optimum handgun range is 20-50 feet. Handguns in melee are dangerous, because people still seem to think they can still pull the trigger ...

Re: Folding Pocket Knives

A couple of suggestions. First, reference the Wikipedia article on Solingen. It lists a bunch of knife and blade manufacturers based in Solingen. Look up their web pages and look at their catalogs. You might find a current model which would do, or you could use the manufacturers names to do a more ...

Re: Tea talk

I won’t argue that. Just putting... perhaps more than just my two evidence-based cents in on any expectation that herbal tea will do something special that regular hot tea or any other hot beverage can’t do due to “healing properties” of the herbs and whatnot that aren’t verified in peer-reviewed s...

Re: More Stuff

Saturday, my brother was telling me I should sign up for a concealed carry class and get my license. Just before I left for work yesterday afternoon, my dad brought up the subject again. So I guess it looks like I'll be spending more money. I had been intending to get my license, but I kept putting...

"The sword is far, the fist is near." - Korean proverb Not familiar with that one(Mother did a lot of that proverb quoting while trying to appear to not do that), but this one seems more suitable: 손바닥으로 하늘을 가리려한다 (Sonbadageuro haneuleul gariryeohanda) " Do not attempt to cover the sky with just the...

"Now produced with less floor sweepings, and with non-GMO certified heavy metals!" Whenever I see a "Natural, Herbal" etc. item that "treats" and "cleanses toxins" I think "Projectile Vomiting." Gotta say that was my first thought as well. Most real tisane(that don't promote anything), are blends o...

Re: Anyone Want Some Grapefruit?

Wife doesn't want me lounging around our new trailer, while she is trying to get a job at a daycare. And sadly her car needed a few thou in repairs before we left, so we have a credit card to pay off before I can just lounge around. The school in question is in the "good" part of Mesa, with a reall...

Re: Anyone Want Some Grapefruit?

I'd probably be a poor fit for that, because I'd tell them I have a "particular set of skills". Oh, and as previously stated, yes, I always bring a knife to a gunfight. But threat assessment, disarm/apprehend student with as little harm to him/her as possible, and yeah, it sucks that it's not always...

Re: Hearts and Hooves Day VI: Stallion the Course

I've had a set of legacy cats since Xmas day, after about 12 years without a permanent quadruped presence. Siblings, tuxedo male and calico female. They could come and go as they pleased at my dad's place, but there it's at least a quarter mile to a hard road in any direction. They were used to bei...
