I attended the exhibit when it was in San Francisco for my birthday last year. "Starry Night Over the Rhone" was absolutely amazing. I agree with you reproductions do not do these works of art justice. I need to go to more museums and art galleries.

White House said Islamic law required the body be buried within 24 hours.

I agree someone will rise to replace him, this is more justice for the multitudes of people who have suffered because of his actions.

I blame you guys...

I blame you guys for guiding me to L.L. Bean. I've purchased several items for my newly adopted dog (leash, coat, blanket). Dad, Mom, and Wife are all getting wicked good slippers. Nieces are getting fleece caps. All in the last three weeks, and I'm probably not done yet. Wendell, I'm looking at you...

Cashing in an old 401k

Well gents, looks like i'll be cashing in an old 401k. There's not too much in there; maybe about $30,000. I was hoping to roll it over to my new jobs retirement plan but recent events have left me with no other options. Does anyone have a rough estimate or experience as to how much Uncle Sam and th...

WTB single edge blades

Gents I would like to purchase or perhaps trade something for some different single edge blades. I recently found a GEM razor, and want to give it a run once I clean it up.
