Re: Soccer/Futbol

I watched the Futbol in Ireland and Australia. I like theirs better than our Football. It won't get a chance in America because there is too much action! Not enough time to sell products. Theirs Isn't loaded with penalties, injuries, and time outs. Every time the opposing football team gets momentum...

Re: Cannibidiol CBD - what's up with this stuff?

Don't fear it. See if it works for you. After retiring from a 30 plus year career in aviation I tried CBD. I didn't have any ailments to need it so of course I didn't notice anything. I also smoked pot, I don't care for it. I know a cancer patient who used marijuana for pain, and it had a far better...

Re: Question for you old farts and retirees?

I retired a year and a half ago. So Glad I Did! It's nice to join the ranks of the retired. I shave as much as always. Not every day. Most of all be considerate of your wife. She doesn't want to live with a bum.

Re: Return to Simplicity

Sometimes I pamper myself with the multitude of products, but now I have enough of them for years. I may be accused of being a "Bogan" for my most common routine. I soap my face in the shower with the same soap as I use on my body and hair. When I get out of the shower I use more soap, then use a ca...

Re: Boots

Lucchese for cowboy boots, and Allen Edmonds for dressier boots or shoes. Pricey, but undoubtedly worth it.

Your most expensive shoes are the ones you never wear.

Re: Practical jokes

My brother is retiring at the end of the month after 30 years. He is going to take a picture of himself smiling and waving good bye. Then make 30 copies on the copier. Next he is going to add one copy to every 50 sheets back into the printer stack. I'm sure he will be missed!

Re: Memories of barbershops when growing up.

I was 6 years old in 1966. My brothers took me to the barbershop in Ashtabula Ohio. I was one of the youngest of 7 kids, so I didn't get out in public much at all. There were around four barbers working at the same time. One of them was Black! I may have seen a Black person on the black and white TV...

Re: Yeti Coolers and Cups

I have 2 Yeti coolers. They will last forever if not stolen, and more than twice the weight of a cheap one. If you have one and use it you will replace your ice every 2 days. If you put refrigerated drinks in it, they melt the ice. If you put room temp. water in it you will really melt the ice. Why ...

Re: Watches, watches, watches (caution: modem burner)

Cliff presented some really nice watches. The Rolex will be noticed by 90% of the people who see it, but the Lange & Shone will be " noticed" by the other 10%. I like how it has tasteful understated qualities. After seeing it I would like to find a similar self winding swiss watch with gold and and ...

Re: Watches, watches, watches (caution: modem burner)

Well, the attachment worked, but it sure is BIG! It fits nicely in the pocket watch pocket of my blue jeans. It's hard to believe they still make those pockets in blue jeans. The other side looks almost identical to Malocchio's watch.

It's called Hamilton Railway Special. It looks allot like the one posted, except it has a bar above the stem. To change the time I unscrew the crystal, then pull out a small lever. Then I can dial in the time with the stem.

Re: Watches, watches, watches (caution: modem burner)

I like old pocket watches. A friend of mine who repairs watches sold me a 1950's mechanical railroad pocket watch. it keeps good time, and modern blue jeans still have a pocket to accommodate the watch. I like to wind it too.
