Re: I'm heading back to Tijuana.

How are the crowds down there? Are many Americans taking advantage of those attractions you mention? The route you outline makes a lot of sense. The border crossing in a private car has been a problem in the past, too many with lots of inspections.... Used to go to Ensenada in the old days. A bus ri...

Re: Girl Scout Thin Mints - hard narcotics disguised as cookies

...I left her alone to shingle an Eiger... Mr. Corpse, Eiger is a mountain in Switzerland made really famous by the book and movie, "The Eiger Sanction", said movie starring the incomparable Clint Eastwood. Mountains don't normally require roof work, shingles or otherwise. Could it be that you are ...

Re: Food poisoning

More likely salmonella. Glad you recovered. This can be dangerous. No more green eggs and ham!

Re: Girl Scout Thin Mints - hard narcotics disguised as cookies

We used to have similar experiences with many of their offerings, so we just don't buy them anymore.

A victim of their own success!

Re: Rush Limbaugh’s Passing

I got to see him at one of his Rush to Excellence tour appearances. He was great on the radio and really great in person. No one can really fill his shoes although Mark Lavin is the closest to anyone.

He will be missed.

Sharper Deal Forum Changes

I understood Bob was going to make some "minor" changes to his forum. Looks like something bigger than that as it has been down for several days. Anyone heard anything?

My doctor said the same thing, but also noted they were very treatable using Tylenol. We get our second in a couple of weeks and are armed accordingly.

Re: Have manual transmissions become an anti-theft device?

I live in San Francisco, hard to believe but I do and have for most of my life. My wife and I are native San Franciscans. The city we grew up in is miles away from the leftist cesspool it has become. Driving here with a stick shift is an acquired art, especially when in a line of traffic stopped on ...

Re: Quality

... in my personal opinion, Frank B knives are overrated and overpriced. I have two 11" and one 13" and I do not like them. The blades and springs are thin. The handles look like blocks and do not contour with the knife. The bolster and blade on two have "play". They were purchased new. Sorry guys,...

Re: Quality

I think this is very short sighted in that they are essentially giving away their market to other foreign m...

These are gorgeous! Renzo's work is the epitome of Italian knife makers. Who surpasses him over there?
