This old bird just got in from a trip up into PA. I stopped at a little antique shop and found a beautiful gold Aristocrat and a red tip SS. After discussing the wonderful shaving qualities of the razors with the female shop owner, and also mentioning how it is a shame that these razors are just laying on a shelf collecting dust (instead of getting proper use), I offered to take the lonely razors off her hands (thus freeing display space for other items :rolleyes:). She was just tickled that I would offer her a whole $10 for a couple old razors, so she threw in another "old time shaver" she had in a box. That turned out to be an old NDC fat handled Tech. I shoud have been a used car salesman.................................. :biggrin:

It really does not matter on the employee working. You just have to be willing to take advantage of them. I personally have NO problem giving an old lady who has just lost her husband, two sons, her house, dog, cat, car, and is in a wheelchair (which is being repossessed due to lack of funds) five dollars for a razor that I know is worth over a hundred.

My first car was a '67 Mustang that I put two years worth of work into. Got it when I was 14. Well, at about 18 or so I blew the motor I'd built (needed new pushrods and I was lazy) so I put it in storage and was driving a 'Vette (worst POS ever). Go to get it and the unit is locked up tight. Turns out dad didn't want to pay the bill anymore and forgot to tell me. The thing was lein sold out from under me. I saw it a few times. Knew it was mine by the vintage Clay Smith cams on the rear 1/4 windows and the CocaCola red paint job. Devastating to see it again. The idiot driving it had begun the process of ruining it with velvet interior and whatever other ornaments and trinkets he could get a Pep Boys.

Turkey day, birthday, Iron Bowl...great time of year!

I love any festive time of year when delicious food is around. I'm looking forward to Thanksgiving with the girlfriend's family. They know how to cook (so does my family, but my family doesn't live in Boston).


It's me... I was having a little fun with "bulb" setting on my camera when I first got it.

Micah... you're a lot more attractive than I would have thought.


Is it just me or is HOT in here?1?!

Yes. It is. Take off all your clothes.


I just Rickrolled someone in real life. I'm a loser.

Amazing. How did that go down?


Nice warm day in chicago. Shame I have to work it.
the hell of the election is coming. its oh so close.

I'm in a suburb west of Chicago right now. It's so ridiculously warm that I want it to get chillier.

Ok, all. I thank you for your contributions, and I think I've reached a decision. A majority voted for "hobbies/interests" based avatar, so...

Because my hobbies/interests are too varied and numerous for any one pic to fully encompass them, I went with one that I feel captures the essence of several of them: writing, fantasy/fiction, languages, history, intellectual, gentlemen, ancient weapons and armor, books, education, all this and more makes my picture of J.R.R. Tolkien a near perfect fit. So, without further ado...

Okay, can someone explain this to me:
Last week, upon hearing the news that my dentist appointment had to be moved to today, I tried to go vote early. Stood in line approximately 30 minutes, moved 8 feet....in a 200 foot line; I had somewhere else to be in 45 minutes, 30 minute drive included, so I had to leave.

This morning, get up, get to the voting location, stand in line, sign my name, cast my vote, left, stopped at gas station, filled up near empty tank, went inside, filled a cup with coffee, paid, got in the car and made a phone call in less time than I stood in line for early voting Friday!

Yes, I'm in a rather small town, >6000, but it still amazes me, I guess everyone else voted early?

Mornin'. Happy election day. Mailed mine a few weeks back so I'm good today. No lines, no muss, no fuss. Took a different route into the city today...one without speed cameras! Found out the fine on those things is a flat $185 regardless of speed unless you exceed 20 mph over in which case it goes criminal and gets turned over to DPS. Still waiting to see if I get a real ticket or just a warning. Peckerwoods.

Catch up attempt #3 and another few pages down...are we there yet? :eek:


For being such a super fantastic customer Direct TV has given the Shep household three free months of Showtime. I'm not a big fan of the network, but you know I'll take anything free. I'll just get this comment out of the way right now: the new Inside the NFL sucks hard just like I knew it would when I posted about them moving to Showtime a few months ago. Doesn't even hold a candle to the HBO version.

That's not what we're here about though. I want to know if any TAT'ers have watched Dexter and if so what's your thoughts? Also what exactly is it? A cop show? A supernatural show? Both? I saw badges in the trailer so obviously there's cops, but I got kind of a vibe that it's not strictly a cop show. There seems to be some kind of "special ability" thing going on but I could be crazy. As an aside during the opening sequence of the show there's a close up shave scene, using a cartridge of course and shave oil. Goofy that I pay that to such things now isn't it? Anyway, thoughts on Dexter?

Dexter is a great series...well, as Ray mentioned, season 1 and the first few episodes of season 2 I've seen. Basically you've got Dexter, who is an emotionally scarred, vigilante cop in Miami. He's a forensics guy specializing in blood spatter and he drudges the bottom of Miami for its scum, then systematically kills them.

Netflix it. Season 1 is available on the instant player, so you can't lose!


Shane and 91 get chicks at them because they play it right. Ignore them and they come running. Got to go get the oil change today. Send out a sample of SCS Nutriment to a user and finish pricing my shave den blowout.
It is usually nap time for me since baby is napping but I had to stay up to get his stuff together for our road trip to the Toyota dealer.

Dear Hotmail,

I know you and I have had our problems in the past and you're basically the workhorse of my e-mail addresses, but you've gone too far this time. Yes, I abuse you both mentally and physically with all the random crap and junk mail I can stuff inside you. I admit that. That in no way justifies this new 'look' you've found yourself in. Like a cheap, forty-five cent whore slathered in make-up it only serves to further cheapen your standing in my eyes. I must admit that I liked you better before. I don't know who you are anymore and to my surprise that has left a bit of a hole in my heart. So until I can find the makeup remover/disc grinder/wire brush that will change you back to the Hotmail I mostly enjoyed I'm afraid I'll be avoiding you as much as possible. Please don't follow me or try to convince me to come back. It would be too painful for both of us. Maybe if you get your act together we can try again, but for now I must bid you farewell. Please, for you sake get rehab.

I finished up college (1995) just before the internet revolution really took off. I've always thought how great it would've been to have had access to google and all the encyclopedic websites when doing papers. However having a laptop in class w/ internet access might have been a dangerous thing. Some of those lectures can get pretty dry. Something like B&B would have been a nice distraction.

I first read about them in Men's Health mag a couple years ago, felt compelled to try them, but never could find them. then about February, they nearly literally jumped into my cart at Brookshires...I bought them, I cooked them, my family and I ate them....the consensus is a mutual ginormous thumbs up!
if you like sweet potato pie and/or pancakes, you owe it to yourself to get out there and find it...them brand I found was in a white bag, I'll have to see if I can find the brand/image real quick....

The MWF shaves pretty nicely although probably not enough to convince me to purchase a puck as I have several others offering the same quality at better prices. Glad I got to try it though. Thanks Dom.

You're welcome, Shep. Those are my thoughts exactly. It's a decent soap, but I don't know if I'll be replacing it after I finish it.


another guy here checked for his hood and said it wasnt available. I have not looked myself yet. I like Comcast purely for the internet connection.

edit: not available here in the small podunk town of Chicago

I used to have Comcast a couple of years ago (in Boston). Their internet was excessively slow and unreliable and their television service (cable) was unreliable as well - the slightest bit of rain made half of the channels unwatchable. I switched over to a smaller local company by the name of RCN that offered the same thing television-wise, but better internet speeds for the same price and I've been happy with them since.


Yeah, my wife's hotmail account showed up with that new look the other day too. Mine still looks the same. Neither of us did anything so I wonder why hers switched and mine didn't???

Is that a pink frog Rolls?

Any internet service like that (Hotmail, Gmail, Facebook, etc.) tend to switch accounts over bit by bit. All aren't done at once - the switch to the new look is instead gradually phased in. I assume this is to lessen the load on the servers while at the same time testing the waters for the new look and possible bugs.

Oh. Boobies? Yes please. I love me the blue-footed kind.

Personally, I'm not huge on MB soaps. You won't find me placing an order from Mama Bear. While the scents are awesome, there are soaps that work much better with my skin. Sure, I do miss out on some of the more interesting and exotic scents, but I'd much prefer the better performance over the scent. There are a number of products that I really like (Tabac, Speick, Taylors, Salters, QED to name a few) that give me enough scent variety.

When I get back to Boston, I'll be doing some PIFs and selling some things from my cupboard. I'll be getting rid of two tubs of MB soap - Lavender and Earl Grey. I'll probably replace the lavender with a tub of QED Lavender in the distant future when I next run out of a couple QED soaps.

Cry and whispers sing in muted pain

Beef Stroganoff

Ingredients

Olive oil
50g unsalted butter
500g beef fillet steak, cut into thin strips
1 small onion, finely diced
1 garlic clove, finely chopped
300g mushrooms, thickly sliced*
125ml whiskey
3 gherkins, finely chopped
Pinch of smoked paprika
300ml light sour cream

use oyster, chestnut or chanterelle mushrooms.

By the way, Ray, have you been out and about tonight? I'd be curious to know what the "feel" is in Chicago right now, but at the same time I'd probably think better of it and just stay at home.

True story to follow.

I spent some time living and studying in Munich in the winter of 2006 and during my stay the 42nd Munich Conference on Security Policy took place. Here's a little descriptive blurb I just dug up:


February 4/5, 2006.
More than 300 defense ministers and top security officials meet in Munich at the 42nd Munich Conference on Security Policy. Attendees discuss: "Europe and the United States: Restoring the Transatlantic Partnership" as well as a variety of other issues such as Iran’s nuclear program and the war on terror. Much emphasis will also be placed on the future role of NATO. The photo shows Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld (right) and U.S. Ambassador to Germany William R. Timken, Jr. at the conference site.

Well, long story short, my wife was coming over to visit for a week and we had arranged to stay in a couple's room in a hostel during her stay since I had a roommate in my apartment room. Without thinking, I went downtown on the U-Bahn (subway) to scope out the hostel so I'd know where it was and then things would go smoothly when my wife arrived. I say without thinking because I forgot that the conference was being held that day and several of the subway lines were shut down in the heart of Munich.

So I stepped out of the train when it hit the end of the line and when I emerged out on the street, I was right on the outer boundary of Karlsplatz, which is one of the city's main squares. There were angry hoards of people everywhere. The police were in full riot gear and all lined up in their olive green fatigues. That in itself was scary! Occasionally some people would get unruly and the cops would quell them before hauling them off by their scruffs. Others had big signs of Rumsfeld with a slash through him with such wording as "Rumsfeld ist M&#246;rder." (Rumsfeld is a murderer). I, myself, almost got pulled into a few altercations. It was a heavily charged situation and not one I ever want to find myself in again.

I kept my mouth shut as I'm sure an American accent wouldn't have gone over so well and as quickly as I could, I got back on the subway and went back to my apartment.

Exactly. We rock. And so do you. Off of all the chairs. (Old joke, I know. Sorry)


I like the way you think sir. Stroganoff would hit the spot wouldn't it? Yeahhhhh...has possibilities.


We're kind of like the peanut butter that gets stuck on the roof of your mouth when the milk runs out. At first it's disconcerting, then you get used to it, then you begin to appreciate the nutty flavor lasting all day.

I love good beef stroganoff. I'm actually hungry right now...

Just got back from a delicious dinner with the girlfriend. I had some sort of pasta with duck and apples in bourbon sauce. It was delicious. She had a beef burgundy crepe, which was equally as delicious. We left with a milkshake each. I'll be heading off to Florida for a week tomorrow and she'll be back in Boston by the time I get back. Ah... it'll be nice to be home with her again.

Peanut butter is delicious. Enjoy our nuttiness. We're like those deodorant sticks that claim they give 24 hour protection. We're 24 hour crazy. Yeah. That's it.

Emu has a very mild flavor and takes on the flavor of any seasonings you put on it. It most resembles lean beef. Another thing, unless you use a crockpot like I do, emu has to be cooked to a fairly low temperature to keep it from drying out. I get all my emu meat free, so I eat it quite a bit. Of course, I still love going down to the inner harbor and getting a nice steak at Ruth's too......................

Returning to our olive conversation. Frys grocery down the street has several "designer" brands of olives in their deli section. Fancified and marinated in various concoctions.

As the years have gone by I've seen different reports debunking this claim that premium gas is necessary for certain engines. That the 87 octane is just fine for all street cars and 92 or 94 is just a marketing ploy. You know cars so I'd like to hear your expert opinion Ryan.

Absolutely incorrect. Premium is a requirement for many cars. Due to timing curves, turbo/super charging, etc many cars require premium fuel. Can you run 87? Sure. Not for long, though. My Mazda is a 2.3l direct injection/spark turbo motor and running anything less than 91 would simply severely hurt the car. Detonation is a major part of the issue. 90&#37; of cars can run on regular because they are designed to do so. A lack of extreme timing and running well under performance capabilities make it possible. Can you benefit from running a higher octane fuel? If you're having some engine troubles you can at times. 91 burns cleaner, but in your econobox you're never going to notice a difference.

IIRC, the Shelby Daytona was also a turbocharged motor and would require 91. It's more important today to follow the manufacturers suggested octane requirements as engines and engine management are very sensitive to things like octane and bad fuel. Knock/detonation/ping are all detrimental to an engines life. It's caused by low octane fuel igniting spontaneously and burning out of order. Octane rating is essentially a measurement of the fuels ability to be compressed before self ignition. Self ignition causes ping/knock/detonation and is bad.

Modern internal combustion engines in automobiles are four stroke, meaning there are four steps to the process - suck (fuel/air mix enters the combustion chamber), squeeze (the air/fuel mix is compressed), bang (air/fuel mix is ignited by the plug) and blow (exhaust gasses are released through the exhaust valves). The critical step as far as octane is concerned is the squeeze step. That's where low octane fuel in an engine that requires premium will cause your problems.

I could probably go on about this for days, but I won't. Use what is suggested and you'll be fine.

EDIT: Also, fuel is actually a coolant in your combustion chamber and higher octane fuels do the job better.

I play with turbos too much so I haven't used anything but 91 in years. Damn it's expensive. Heh. Sometimes I'll pony up for 100 octane, but that's rare.

Unit 91
11-05-2008, 09:56 AM
I just reread my first post on the subject and I made a bit of an odd statement. Cleaner isn't really the right word for how higher octane fuels burn. They burn SLOWER than lower octane fuels which is counterintuitive to many people. That is because the fuel is less volatile, allowing for more compression before pre-ignition occurs. It also requires more heat input (spark) to ignite, but does burn more evenly. Though combustion chamber design and plug placement has a lot to do with how the flamefront behaves.

One other fun fact, Dodge is not the only auto-maker to have a "HEMI". HEMI refers to the hemispherical shape of the compbustion chamber and these days is nothing more than a marketing gimmick. Most cars use a hemispherical combustion chamber as it allows better control of the flamefront and a more even combustion process. So there!

In your regular car if you step on the 'go pedal' and hear what sounds like marbles in a can that seems to get worse the harder you press then try a higher octane fuel. You've got detonation!

So Cory and Rich won? Congrats; I guess. Now what?

Hey, Who in TAT is a fan of the now discontinued shave cream from The Body Shop? I have some inside info about it that you will be very interested in.

Actually, a fair number of the "I'm writing someone in" votes belong to the Distraction Party. When added to the votes for Ouch/Johnniegold, and the one vote cast for Distraction, it's clear that Distractiongirl is Queen of the B&B.

Here's a totally random thought:

If I lived in a quaint New England town and I saw Jessica Fletcher checking in at the local Bed & Breakfast, I'd get the heck out of town for a few days.

Cause you know someone is going to end up dead.

okay, on cars with electric windows, many have the feature that you can make either push the control far enough over, or hold it down for a moment, and it will take the windows down all the way for you, it is quite convenient, but......why the 'ell don't they make it go up the same way?!?!?! would be even more useful, methinks...it can't be that difficult to do

Well Jimbo, one more reason for you to buy the 'Bu. It has auto down and up driver side window. Though the auto up feature is temperamental on mine. Already had the switch replaced but it's acted up a couple times since then.

Any action last night Ray? The news says all was calm, but I find that hard to believe.

The news did not report all the gunfire. Some was aimed at police. Riot gear was brought out with gas bombs on southside. Gee wonder who told the media to leave it alone.

I'm happy to help. :smile:

It's German (hence the spelling -- think "Irish Moss," though there's some disagreement on the latter word's translation). It existed for years, then disappeared. It's back. It's made by the folks who bring you Tabac, using a quite similar formulation. It smells different than Tabac. I'm not a huge fan of Tabac's scent, so I figure the changes are good it smells better :wink: The manufacturer flat out refuses to import it to the US directly, but Oskar was kind enough to send me a stick to split for sampling, and Johnniegold subsequently found an importer who happened to hit the motherlode. The mods approved both "group buys".

You want to enter the lottery for a sample, click the link in my signature, below. You want to commit to buy a stick or 13, click through the article on the home page. We all have high hopes!

I posted the scent profiles in both threads tonight -- hope that helps a bit. Glad to see that both you and Shep (and some other TAT regulars) entered the lottery -- shows courage and commitment to SSAD!

the questions and concerns, and issues facing them are tough. The election news was the main thing they talked about tonight at church, fortunately God has the foresight to remind me to read Romans 13 this week...keeping a Biblical perspective, for those that are believers and attempt to do so, is difficult enough as an adult whose convictions are solid, but the youth and children are so bombarded with propaganda it's a scary place, especially when you consider the ones without a stable family life to anchor to.

Just saw where this week a report has come out saying girls who watch sexy TV/movies are more likely to get pregnant. I don't always put a lot of stock in reports decrying the next generation, but certainly this might be worth some follow up.
