Yeah, they do a good job. I also like Capital Grille which is a Darden Group restaurant but still pretty fantastic.

I've heard of that place too, we have one in Scottsdale.

My wife and I ate at Texas De Brazil. It was great, but it will be a while before I spend that much on dinner again.

I saw the word "Chromium" on the internet and had to check in.

No real updates but glad to see you guys still talking about your preferred timber varieties and businesses/products I have never heard of.

I've now been living in England for nearly a year (Jan). They're bastards as expected.Thinking of taking up flying lessons and getting a PPL, starting guitar and burning my career down to start something different (not that i have any ideas what though) but not really started anything on any of these fronts other than 1 "lesson" in a 152.

If Scotchycam ever took off you guys would be thrilled at how pedestrian life has become. Like if David Mitchell's character in peep show got what he wanted all the time.

Not surprising in the least.  We'll see what happens over the next 2 years.

Dude left his Senate seat (which then flipped parties) to go get mocked and berated every day by the president who hired him, then got fired. 

What a career turn.

Instead of just touting Gun Owners of America and my local gun rights advocacy group, I actually broke down and joined both of them. The NRA is a joke, and I'm happy I never gave them a dime in my lifetime.

And Mattis resigning? Man oh man, I believe the last competent person finally left that administration. I'm all for pulling out, but not by blindly screwing our command or allies.

Got married 2 years ago and have a son. Just started a new job getting back into machining. I also started posting on this forum on the tippmann website, pretty sure they just forgot about and that's why it's still around. Any way other than that I just get tattoos that my wife "does not approve of, but understands".

You have my sympathy, I went through this back in the 90s.  She even tried to have me arrested for sticking a gun in her face but luckily for me she was too specific in the charges and the weapon she accused me of threatening her with was stored (with all my other weapons) in the base armory, at my request, just to make sure I didn't do something stupid like that.

Everyone needs to have had at least one psycho-chick in their past so they can better appreciate the non-psycho-chicks they meet.  (Just one . . . . not multiple one's in a row like I did for a while.  I once had a friend/coworker in the Air Force tell me that his psycho-chick detection method was introducing me to potential girlfriends and if we hit it off he'd run the other way and let me have her.)

I understand this feeling completely.

/End obligatory fart joke brought on via flashback by this being almost the exact same phrase I heard in the Air Force when subordinates started fleeing out of formation during an open ranks inspection I was conducting.  (Yes, it was foul . . . . I moved the formation to the other end of the hanger and started up again where I left off.)

After re-establishing credit for about a year, I was approved for a Coscto/CITI credit card. I kinda feel like an adult now.


I've never felt like an adult . . . . I wonder how many other people (supposed adults) feel like they are going through life faking it and don't care because they are still having fun?

Or lean into it, buy a big belt buckle and ten gallon hat and fight anyone who says anything.

Thoughts on that? :p


I'd go this way.

But I've never been accused of acting overly mature . . . or even slightly mature.  (I'm hoping I'll know which route you chose by the time I reach the end of the thread and post this.)

So true; when I was driving a lot for work I was seriously thinking about getting a dash cam.

Not necessarily.  We get a lot of Canadians down here and the only ones that automatically trigger me are the ones from Alberta.  I've decided Alberta driver's must be Canada's version of Kansas drivers.

This is why I'm glad I never put any personal information on Facebook.  To include entering a fake birthday and using a picture of Yul Brynner as my profile pic.  (Of course everyone wishes me happy birthday on the wrong day . . . . but I can live with that.)

My daughter-in-law loves her Honda Fit.  Dependability wise it's hard to go wrong with any Honda.  Now I'm hoping this thread will end up telling me if they got the Fit.

I collect weird crap.

I bought one for camping and decided I liked playing with them.


I just had a mental image of someone in a large dark basement hovering over a multitude of flickering lanterns saying "myyyyy preciousnessessssss" in a raspy whisper.

One question answered . . . . he went at least partial Texan in Colorado.

But I still don't know if Whale got a Fit.

And the whole thing with DeTrevni and the flood . . . . holy crud!  Glad that all eventually worked out but I need to start lurking again.
