Re: Gillette Scores an own goal

I would boycott them, except I have no use for anything they make and haven't bought anything of theirs for a VERY long time.

Re: My Quest for working car traction mats may finally be over

Pauldog, you can certainly use those tires year round, but I have no experience with them in that role. But some things that might make a difference is that they will be noisier than a summer tire, and your gas mileage will also suffer a bit. Yes, tire changeover is a PITA but we always notice the d...

Re: Spam?

Yeah, you absolutely do NOT want to know what inexpensive bologna is made out of. Yes, it's made out of that stuff that you'd rather not think about. The homogenizing into oblivion and spices hide a great deal. Now good bologna can be made of quality ingredients but I would know the maker personally...

Pauldog I don't know your location so I can only write in generalities. It may pertain to you or not. It's not what holds the grippers that matters, it's the grippers themselves. If you threw down screws and nuts they would pull you out if you could keep them from sinking in, but you'd take forever ...

Re: My Quest for working car traction mats may finally be over

Depends on the state under discussion Gary. They are legal in Maine and all I can discuss is Maine, but the wording is to the effect "as long as they aren't too aggressive" so it would be up to the individual officer. Too it would depend on conditions. They can only be used during snowstorms so they...

Re: My Quest for working car traction mats may finally be over

If you ever do need to make anything like that in the future, a piece of spent rubber belt, say from a cashiers station and screws maybe 1/8 - 1/4" longer then the washers (both sides) and nut should work fine. Of course you'd want to install them so that they stick out both sides or use a screw wit...

I have never had my whiskers fall over. That's why I wasn't going to go anywhere near it. I think snake oil is one of the ingredients in that pre-lotion.

Re: Joke of the Day

OK, I'd be the 4th person who would be a blend of the first 2. But I'd most enjoy observing the 2nd and never experience it for myself. It would be like licking the flagpole. Nothing I'd want to do but I would enjoy seeing someone else show me what it's all about.

Re: What's for supper?

Made 2 loaves of 50% freshly ground whole white wheat bread yesterday, sans salt, but they do have sodium in the form of vitamin C added to strengthen the gluten structure. Why make bread? I like to stay under 500mg sodium per day. Read labels to see how difficult that is to do. Many breads will put...

Re: Call me crazy, I bought a whole-house generator

Jim, we had an icestorm years ago that brought our area to the ice age (literally) decades ago. I built on an addition to the home for a wood stove (I love wood heat), but I also installed a PV electrical system with battery backup and a whole house gen'. The gen' can charge the batteries and so can...

CBD doesn't introduce a high. It's THC that does that.

Re: Any thoughts on the use of shaving oils with a DE razor

I echo Gary, but the one commercial oil that I tried didn't do much for me. I much preferred the lubricity and cushioning of soap. If it works for you then great.
