  1. I remember this book from that time, read it when it first came out. An interesting memoir. Chuckled when he referred to his skirmishes with his soon-to-be ex-wife as 'the Indian Wars'.
  2. "What's the matter kid, don't ya like clowns"?
  3. Have had professional massages from both men and women. This is how it works for me... If I have an injury or need something worked out, pulled muscle etc., I prefer a man. They have more strength and can work deeper and generally aren't as afraid to cause pain. This makes this type of massage more effective. I have chronic shoulder problems and when I need to get it loosened up I go to the guy at my health club. This is when I don't need a chiropractor, but want to get a specific area worked on. On the other hand I sometimes just want a general, non-specific, medium massage to relax tension in my back after a bad day or if I worked out a bit too hard. Then I prefer the ladies because they have a lighter touch, though some gals can surprise you with their strength. Usually almost go to sleep when they work. No innuendos or sexual comments please. I'm in my seventies so that isn't an issue. Just letting you know what works for me...
  4. Also English Leather... that was my favorite
  5. 1Password, without a doubt! Been using it for years without a problem. Be sure to keep backups of the database in a couple different places and you're gold.
  6. Maybe Marina's car, but Oswald took the bus to work...
  7. Don't forget K&E and Post. The K&E came in a teflon version that never got sticky, unlike the Post, being made of bamboo, that needed frequent applications of soap as a lube. The circular rules were slick. they gave a greater degree of accuracy due to their size but were unhandy; wouldn't fit in your pocket or pocket protector.
  8. Since my wife is mostly disabled I do about all the grocery shopping for us. Last couple of years my joints have deteriorated to the point that I use a cane daily, and always when I go somewhere in a car. I see that as a mixed blessing. I do get some minor courtesies from a lot of folks, but no pitying faces. However, there are plenty of self-indulgent jack-wagons who wouldn't think of moving aside, or giving me a bit of room to get by, or just stand in the aisle and stare, with drool dripping off their chins. Non to mention the little snot-faces 'yutes'. Though it would embarrass the hell of my wife, I get my petty revenge by 'accidentally' whacking their shins with my cane, running into them, or other similar but harmless bit of microaggression. I look on it as an educational process for them; being more aware, more courteous to the disabled, and being less of a jack-wagon. And for naysayers, I'm fookin old now, hurt all the time, and a little excitement is good for my heart! Ronaldo, grouchy old cripple
  9. Just did a quick check and still have about 1500 rds of Remington and Federal bulk ammo. Guess I need to take it to the farm and let the kids shoot it up. I've kept the good stuff in case of hard times. Ronaldo
  10. Don't know about that, but I do remember having a substantial accumulation of bulk ammo from various manufacturers that I sold during the shortage. Kept all my CCI and Aguila and still have a lifetime supply. I wonder if the new bulk ammo is if better or worse quality than the older stuff? Ronaldo
  11. I was always a quiet member on the 'other' forum, but today I let loose a rant on Rabbi's post there which may get me booted. Oh, well... Sad thing is that I have got 19 years in over there and here I'm just fresh meat. I guess that's how things roll. But it would be nice to get my time 'grandfathered' in. Anyhow, the fires aboard the good ship GT are burning but I doubt the ship will sink. Maybe roll a bit further northward hey? Ronaldo, snark mode on today
  12. Save your big Vlasic pickle jar from your last trip to Wally World. Wash Clean. Re-package pickles in WW jar. Job done! Ronaldo, who speaks little and lives cheap...
  13. Hi... Am (was?) on GT since 1999, took me all this time to get to about 1000 posts. Does this mean I've got to start over again? Doubt I'll live long enough to get even halfway there. Eric, we are physically near neighbors, live over one suburb from you. Best of luck here on the new site! Ronaldo, who still won't say much...
