At this very moment I am enjoying my first night off in a very long time with a bottle of Brewery Ommegang's Rare Vos and a Partagas 1845 Torpedo. (The wonders of wireless internet.)

Let me take this opportunity to solicit some advice. I have plot that is only about 8'x12' to mow. I have an old Craftsman Reel Mower that I picked up at garage sale. It seems to be well lubricated, as it spins freely, and will perform as expected when I push it along the concrete sidewalk. However,...

Buying a car on credit is not a smart move. Tony, I understand the point your making (at least I think its the point your making) - that one shouldn't purchase a something on credit, simply because they could not afford it otherwise. However, given the time value of money, with finance rates at the...

I can't comment on whether Law School is for your daughter, but if she does want to go, it may make her feel more comfortable that a very close friend of mine went to Villanova with a 3.9 GPA and a 152 LSAT. I even have a friend who graduated from Pace and currently works for the DA's office, who go...

I second Hamilton. I'll also suggest Tissot if you want something more sporty.

Now, if you add another zero in there, then we could really talk :twisted: .

Sean Connery as 007 used a Dunhill Roller gas, the Dupont's didn't appear until later. Also Connery wore the Omega watch I had been under the impression that the story of Bond's watch was that in the novels he wore a Datejust, but they used a Sub in the films until they Brosnan films, when the swit...

Michael, that is one nice friend. Here is one I am wanting but am worried about the dial for two reasons: one, would it get busy and I tire of it, and two, difficulty viewing the dial. Am I just overly analytical? What do you men think of this dial? http://i186.photobucket.com/albums/x184/memphisla...

Ah, the foot is out of your mouth. Maybe you should see a chiropracter! :roll: Please don't misunderstand my last post. In no way do I intend to retract any of my previous statements. Based upon the comments of drumana and Dr. Moss I just wanted to make clear that nothing I wrote was intended as a ...

In rereading my own posts I realize that one might read what I wrote in a more harsh light than I intended. I think most of the older members know me well enough to know that I am a very easy going person and don't mean for anything I say to come off in a harsh tone. For those of you that may not kn...

If you have never had chiropractic care than what business do you have offering an opinion on the matter? With out first hand knowlege you can not put forth an opinion based on YOUR expierance or fact . Well my opinion is just that, an opinion. I have stated the basis for my opinion so you can judg...

Is this supposed to convince me of something? Well, it doesn't. All I know is that doctors and physical therapist could not help me with the pinched nerve in my neck and the chiroprator could. This does not mean all doctors are bad and all chiropractors are good. When I asked my doctor, an orthoped...

I see, I guess all 'defendants' are innocent and all accident victims are frauds? No, but some food for thought - whether I win or lose, at the end of the month I take home the same pay check. No bonuses, prizes, or rewards of any kind based upon how well I do at trial or how many cases I settle or...

Yes, I am an attorney and currently about 90% of my practice is civil defense - that is defending people who have been involved in car accidents who have been sued. Isn't 'making a living' as an expert witness just as sleezy? Well that certainly depends upon what it is you testify to, and how consis...

My opinion is that as a whole, chiropractic "medicine" is a profession of greedy quacks who will do anything, write anything, and say anything to make a buck, and who are currently wreaking havoc on the City of Philadelphia.

Currently I make a living in large part by debunking chiropractic reports and expert testimony, so my opinion is probably somewhat jaded.

Well those files in the brief case got the better of my morning, and I didn't get to the cigar until this evening. Though a morning smoke still sounds appealing.

When do you smoke?

Cigars that is, or pipes for that matter? I have my first Sunday off in many many months. All that is on the calender for day is minor projects for the new house. I might even make it out to the driving range to beat on some balls. I sleep late, peruse the intertube for a bit, and find myself here r...

26 here. I have always favored scotches - particularly single malt Islays. More recently I have become interested in these craft bourbons, but when it comes down to it I will always opt for a glass of Lagavoulin or Laphroig over any Bourbon. If, as is the case more often then not, the best that an e...
