Thanks, but the magic lies not within me. I just associate with wizards :-)

Re: Tire wear

Buy a new pair, but put them on the rear.

I prefer the front, since loss of steering control is much harder to recover from than loss of traction in the rear.

Re: Tire wear

Times gone by, I'd put the still good ones on the rear and get new ones on the front. Now that I'm not broke all the time and with the advent of ABS brakes and traction control, I'm more concerned about all four wheels being the same diameter and [more]

Very very slow.
Fix it, TwittyWanKenobe! You're the only one who can! :)

Re: Can't "Fool" Around

Hi DollarBits,

Re: Length of lenses

Rick,

The more expensive lenses will have wider maximum apertures, and more lens elements. It's the additional lens elements that increase the weight and complexity of the lens. In general, the wider the focal length range, the more [more]

Re: Old Hydrangeas

My wife has more expertise than I with these, but I believe Hydrangeas bloom on old wood, at least some varieties. Pruning them back will not necessarily harm them, but you might not get blooming again until the second season after pruning. The last [more]

Re: Snow Tires -- Chinese???

I never heard of them, but it's probably one factory making tires for a bunch of different brands. As long as they have the DOT certification, I wouldn't be too afraid of using them. Winter driving is different then hot weather and high speeds, which [more]

Re: Boardwalk Empire Finale

Ken, in his conversation with Chalkie, Narcisse admitted he had lost the battle and he would have to operate under mob control and pay tribute. That's why the mob ventilating him was a surprise.

Re: Boardwalk Empire Finale

I'd forgotten; end of last season, Narcisse was being pressured by the FBI to be an informant or face deportation. That alone could explain his demise.

Re: Boardwalk Empire Finale

Narcisse could have been killed for racism, or just to take over his businesses completely, or both. Maybe there was an explanatory scene that got cut, but he was clearly chaffing under the fist of the mob.

Re: "Stink Bugs" in Winter?

Vermonter, yes, about an inch, and smelly when crushed. They decided to use my attic for a winter home one year and got in through the vents, then ventured down to my second floor. Annoying, but no harm done outside that one night terror [more]

Re: "Stink Bugs" in Winter?

Re: Length of lenses

Good glass is heavy, and always expensive. There is a world of difference inside the lens barrels.
