Re: how to check water pressure in the house

You may have a water pressure regulator installed on your house. The builder in my neighborhood installed them.

Re: A.J.

If the other 10 are not very good, the QB is not going to look very good.

I see you're prepping for the inevitable with the Cleveland Browns.

Re: A.J.

But McCarron is still very young - he's just been with the Bengals for 2 years (or is it 3 now? - I forget) so if he's given a chance he very well could become that 10-year elite player. Nobody wanted Johnny Unitas at the beginning... and [more]

I really don't get why you chimed in with divorce

I don't speak for rad but I'll make a guess. Financially, a divorce isn't much different than a death of a spouse when it affects a dedicated homemaker. There is a loss [more]

I don't hang any heads on the walls of my house but a little moose meat in the freezer sounds good.

Re: Australian Gov't Warns

In fact, it was me who did our taxes and told her to quit her job. I said that if her total annual salary was going to the IRS, our family had better uses for her time.

Re: Australian Gov't Warns

It's hard enough to explain to the spouse why _her_ income is the one that is taxed at the higher marginal rate than your (his -- the primary breadwinner) income is, and that's why her paycheck is the one that needs to have the highest [more]

Re: Took a train

I suspect Trump will rely heavily on Pence to shepherd legislation through Congress, similar to how Obama relied on Biden.

Re: Remington 700 Rifles Firing Without Trigger

Speaking of Remington Model 700 rifles, I have one that has a bolt-lock feature on it. This is where you must put the safety in "off" position to unload the gun. There was a recall in 1979 that expired in 2002. Does anyone know if the [more]

Good for you! Of course I have always understood that your retirement was certainly more than a decade ago, but perhaps I am mistaken.

Re: hoses radiator and cooling

Meh. I suspect your hoses will make it to at least 200k miles easy.

What if it's another 20 years before the car reaches 200k miles? It's already 20 years old. At this point, I think it's an age issue, not a mileage [more]

I saw an article a while ago that also included leaf vegetables.

Re: Wasteful? Or not?

A CSA would be a waste in two ways for me. One is food waste. I don't eat beets or turnips. If they're in the box, they go into the garbage unless I find a neighbor who would want them. That brings up a second waste. It's a waste of my [more]
