    Non-Stick Frying Pan

    I've got cast iron cookware that I bought thirty years ago... a couple of skillets... but I also inhereted a dutch oven and a couple other pieces of cast iron cookware that were manufactured in the late 1930's. The stuff is pretty slick indeed. So slick, in fact, that to clean these pots and...

    I made Joe B quit Insta - Really

    Although I'm going to be a bit superficial as I respond to your post, we're on a guitar website... and so I'll stray beyond the overall character of a person so as to say: Confidence sure makes a hell of a difference in one's guitar tone! :thumb: Back in the One Hippie days, I was struggling...

    I made Joe B quit Insta - Really

    Thank you very much for your kindly evaluation, Papa. I've been trying to scale myself back quite a bit-- with some success, I might add-- but it really is difficult to address a truly convoluted or complex subject in brief, and to thereafter leave the keyboard feeling as though one has said...

    Local Food Bank......Discuss

    I recall how it was that in the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina, the government handed out checks for fifty grand to those who lost (or who merely abandoned) their property in various hard-hit sections of town. It was almost an overnight thing. One day, everybody was rolling in whatever, but the...

    AT THE POLLS - Democracy in action

    STILL had to be better than Sill! :p My apologies, though: for some reason I always forget that 101AB is-- or was-- stationed at Campbell... :facepalm: Hey, at least I got the state right! :h5: --R :laugh2:

    AT THE POLLS - Democracy in action

    Hey, that's what you get for going with Div Arty! :p One of my uncles was stationed at Ft. Sill; he was also an artillerist, and after a tour in Vietnam was returned to Ft. Sill, to become part of the "development team" for the M198, which was about to replace the old M114. I put the...

    AT THE POLLS - Democracy in action

    Can't help but to agree-- especially after Dave and I observed the antics of our local broadcasters during the relatively mild local disturbances caused by Hurricane Irma. We were laughing and sneering, the shit was such bunk. :noway: But just a week or so ago, we had a hurricane, Nicole...

    Jeff Carlisi interview - 38 Special, guitars, Skynyrd content

    Well... Elliot Easton sure as hell can play. :thumb: But there's another "in your face" thing that happened to me: I was busily mutilating the solo of Mr. Easton in "My Best Friend's Girl", and dug up an interview with Elliot where he was talking about that solo. Turned out that the solo was...

    Jeff Carlisi interview - 38 Special, guitars, Skynyrd content

    Jeff has always been one of my favorite players. :thumb: He does about a two-hour lesson on how to play "Hold On Loosely", but quite a lot of it is just Jeff rapping about different stuff. The lesson is comprehensive and complete-- and very well-presented-- but all the other stuff he was...

    Not true, but it was hysterically funny anyway! :laugh2: Senator Tua? --R :p

    Ideal rate of twist (MLP firearms and shooting thread)

    Hm! That's the Spanish-made Remington 700 clone I've read about, this one with a target stock... :hmm: I found that reading what others say about the Bergara rifles is about as nutty as reading what others have to say about this or that make or model of guitar. Lots of hyperbole, plus heated...

    Left lane squatters - ARGH! (Especially trucks)

    Left lane squatters - ARGH! (Especially trucks)

    I've had all kinds of weird shit happen out there over the years-- especially while riding a motorcycle. For example: one night I was riding to Mississippi, and it was pouring-- really heavy-duty Florida-style rain. Enormous raindrops, and cold as hell even though it was late May. So, some guy...

    Ever since Bertzie opened that truck driver's school, the problem has gotten steadily worse... :hmm: --R :p

    Guitarist who got you interested in becoming one.

    Eric Clapton... and the song I was listening to when I made the fateful decision was his version of "Key to the Highway", off the Layla album. Weirdly enough, however, the only things by Clapton (from any era) that I learned to play were the songs "Tears in Heaven" and "Badge". Clapton was...
