Re: What are you reading?

I have started “Gravity’s Rainbow” at least a half-dozen times and gotten into it as far as 250 pages and just couldn’t keep going. Maybe one day I’ll get all the way through it. I feel like I need a college-level course to do it, though.

Re: Joke of the Day

The day after his wife disappeared in a kayaking accident, a Claddaghduff, Ireland man answered his door to find two grim-faced Constables. We're sorry, Mr. O' Flynn, but we have some information about your dear wife, Maureen" said one of the officers. "Tell me!? Did you find her?" Michael Patrick O...

Re: Psychic Barber on a Sunny Day

When I visited Seattle and Vancouver on the way to Whistler in the summer years ago, I was blown away by the vivid colors of the flowers, which were everywhere you looked. The climate is ideal for flowers. Here in NC, our summers are so hot, the flowers don’t keep their bright, saturated spring colo...

Re: Bluetooth adapter for the car

Good luck! I’ve got a couple of Mpow receivers that are rechargeable, but plugging into the cigarette lighter is probably the way to go in the car.

Re: Bluetooth adapter for the car

Gary, is there any sort of port on your current car audio system for plugging in an audio source? Is there a button anywhere that says AUX for an auxiliary audio source? If not, you may not have an easy Bluetooth option. If so, you want a Bluetooth RECEIVER that will plug into whatever kind of port ...

Re: Folding chair for outdoor concerts, beach activities

Sam, I like the canvas chairs on steel frame that fold into a carry bag. Back height and seat angle should be checked out. Arms with drink holders are very handy.

Re: Bluetooth speaker for a beach vacation

I have a couple of UE Booms. Have used them for a number of years. They put out a surprising amount of sound with decent bass to be as small as they are. The UE phone app will allow them to be used in tandem for stereo and greater area of coverage. I bought these long before the Mega models, but the...

I, too, was going to suggest looking at St. Augustine. It does well in our hot climate and is very shade tolerant.

Re: Amazing NBA finals game

Living in ACC country and having watched Zion play a lot of games this year, he is about as much a lock to be a great pro as any player I have seen. Zion’s combination of quickness, leaping ability and pure size is unprecedented, in my experience. The guy weighs 285 lbs and moves like a ballerina. H...

Re: Fountain Pens

Enjoy your new pens, Wendell. I bought a Montblanc diplomat from someone online about seven years ago and sent it to a fountain pen repair guy, Mikeitwork to adjust the flow and nib size. I keep it in a penholder on my desk and use it for signatures and writing short notes to clients. It’s always sp...
