The Quotes of The Day

Quote I

“These daily rituals of surfing are so ingrained into body, mind and spirit. The ocean is where we feel connected and find our balance and peace. It’s where we sort things out and find purpose in our life.” Randy Strunk, owner of Pacific Beach Surf Shop


Quote II

“If you’re going to dance on someone’s constitutional rights you better have a good reason, you better have a really good reason, not just a theory,”

“The data is showing us it’s time to lift (the stay-at-home orders) so if we don’t lift, what is the reason?”Dr. Daniel W. Erickson of Bakersfield, California


Quote III

"In our caucus, we are very devoted to the Gospel of Matthew when I was hungry, you fed me, when I was homeless, you sheltered me, when I was imprisoned, you visited me. And so this for us is a part of our value system. Speaker of the House, Nancy Pelosi


Quote IV

“Tomorrow at 12 o’clock, my voice will be silenced for several months,” he said, referring to his normal Sunday service. “You will not hear from me again. I promise you, I will continue to do what I do. This is not about me. This is about our religious liberties.” Pastor Tony Spell of the Life Tabernacle Church in Baton Rouge


Quote V

"This hurts the credibility of the city. What happens if a developer is watching the meeting (and sees that)? They would obviously have concerns about the city." Vallejo, CA Mayor Bob Sampayan


Quote VI

“We’ve spoken to members, and they’re saying they’re using the site as a release valve for the tension that’s built up at home during the pandemic,” “They’re looking to have needs met that aren’t being met at home.” Ashley Madison chief strategy officer Paul Keable

What's the old saying, "When guns are outlawed only outlaws will have guns". The new saying, "When movement is outlawed only outlaws will move"?

Overall, it seems violent crime is down throughout most of the nation. That’s not surprising, actually. After all, most of us are locked down in our home, we’re not out and about to be victims of armed robberies. While other crimes seem to be up, violent crime is down in many other places.

It’s not down everywhere, though. For example, we know it’s not in Chicago. We can’t be completely sure why it’s not there while it is in other places, but it’s not.

It seems the District of Columbia is in the same boat.

Quitting cigarettes is a tough battle. If you don't believe me, just ask our Genius Award Winner.

LAKE COUNTY, Fla. – A woman said she swung a metal pipe at passing cars because she was having a “nicotine fit” and she was upset that none of the drivers would stop to give her cigarettes, according to the Lake County Sheriff’s Office.

Deputies said they were called to the area of County Road 452 and South Em En El Grove Road around 10:30 a.m. Easter Sunday and found Amy Hunt swinging a 3 foot long metal pole at vehicle as they drove by, forcing the drivers to swerve.


When deputies asked her about her behavior, they said she told them she was having a “nicotine fit” and she was angry that the passing motorists wouldn’t give her cigarettes.

andemic Donuts took off. The pair said they shifted from taking orders through Instagram messages to on a website in less than a week.

"The first day we were really surprised we got a couple dozen, like wow this is pretty cool, we could do this every day," Milton said. "And by the second and third day we were selling out into the future."

Their donuts go on sale Tuesday mornings, and they've been selling out within hours. Deliveries to select Denver zip codes go out the rest of the week.

John Lennon - Nobody Loves You (When You're Down And Out)
https://youtu.be/aLKY2o8XQGM

(One of the very few songs not mine that I larned to cover.)

The basic expression surely predates both songs, but I wonder if John's (drastically different) song might not have been him 'inspired by' remembering Blackwell. The lads did like some blues.

Mom and I had a talk about what happens if I don't get hired back by my school for the fall (which I foresee happening); she said she had enough money to cover us both if I needed to move back in permanently, but I said I just couldn't bring myself to do that. I don't see how anyone could live like that and be okay with it, whether it's your parents or the government you're mooching off of.

91 dartist and splurge, yup. McCartney wrote Come And Get It just for them. I believe his demo is on the Beatles Anthology Vol 3.

I really enjoy the very first Beatles (actually Quarrymen) 45, of which there is only one copy in existence in the entire world: "In Spite Of All The Danger," written by Paul and... George Harrison, recorded in 1958. The only McCartney/Harrison collaboration, and it doesn't really sound quite like the Beatles we all know (and some of us love) that hit it big as of 1962-63.

Posted by: Surfperch at April 27, 2020 10:13 PM (tVQUs)



When I was but a wee tyke of 4 or so, we lived in Vallejo for a bit more than a year.

The Old Man was on the Commissioning Crew of the U.S.S. Scamp, at Mare Island Naval Shipyard.

Base housing was "tight quarters". I wouldn't say that my brother and I shared a "bedroom", exactly. More like a doored alcove, at best.

So, while I wasn't exactly aware of the Greater Vallejo area, I can attest to this much: My folks hated the place, and couldn't wait to get us outta there.

So, shithole. By decree.

All democrats and fellow travelers on the Left are notoriously bad at giving to charity. There was a big study a few years ago that surveyed political opinions mashed up with charitable giving and the Left gives nothing. They believe in taking money from the rest of us at gunpoint and "giving" it to their various interest groups as welfare.

The used underwear was given by The Clintons as a charitable donation.

I told y'all about the adorable little neighbor girl leaving the creepy, taped-up doll on my porch "because it's evil, and won't stop talking to her."

I thought it wouldn't get much spookier than that, until now.

She came up alongside Lady YD's daughter, and they both had drawn pictures of wounded birds, which the neighbor girl was pretty proud of.

I asked "Why wounded birds?" Before the neighbor girl could respond, mine said "Well, it's more entertaining than watching cars run over evil dolls."

I don't know what's going on around here. I probably should know. But I don't think I want to.

Then he took some questions from the peanut gallery. Breitbart was there, and OAN. But the regular dummies were there en masse and one final stupid question from some dumb fat blonde ended the event.

I also didn't think it tied up that many loose ends. It basically just kind of reaffirmed things the finale had led us to believe, so while it works as a standalone special, it didn't really add anything significant, in my opinion.

In spite of your limited ambitions thereto, the correct answer in the present moment is: "Drink".

We can discuss more constructive ambitions, tomorrow.

Tonight? Just drink.

You don't gotta get blotto, but you do have to reach the point of Required Saturation so as to uncork your reserves of anger, rage and a will to avenge.

Tomorrow then, will look quite different.

You won't see "Karen" as an obstacle, obstruction or distraction.

But better, as a target of the fire of your will, the focus of your fury and the laughingstock of her neighbors.

You must take a metaphorical scalp. And not just at the net.

Hang that scalp from the lodge pole at your Hogan, and revel in the praise from the songs of your people.

There was an owner of a men's wear shop on TuCa tonight who opened his Manhattan shop today. He said the cops stopped by and he told them he was open and if people wanted to come in and shop and buy stuff he wasn't going to stop them. The cops left without giving him a ticket or doing anything.

He said the cops asked if he was a veteran and he said yes and they thanked him for his service and he thanked them.

Of course, things might be different tomorrow now that he's been on TuCa. DeBlasio will not stand for such insolence from the peasants.

358 Stealing a tank isnt all that hard. First you have to locate the nearest base that has working tanks. That info usually isnt published but if you search using the term "armor' you can find where the tanks are.

Once you locate working tanks you will need to gain access to the base. Unless you already have military id or you are a grade a forger, getting in a guarded gate isnt goin to work.

You will need to get in by either going over or through a fence. Take bolt cutters. Good ones because that chain link is thicker than you think. You will also need to cut the lock of hatch you choose to use. I would advise going through the turret hatch if you are unfamilliar with the layout of a tracked vehicle.

You should also. if you don't have the experience, familiarize yourself with the controls and be able to locate the master power switch and the start button.

Once you gain access and have started you stolen 70 ton monster, please be smart and not like that dummy that stole an m-60 out in commiefornia,

COMBAT LOCK the damned thing. That way when you get cought on an obstacle, nobody can fire a weapon into the thing and end your reighn of terror.

364 The Oppression Olympics in Portland is heating up!

For a while now, "progressive" nonprofits and other "progressive" organizations in Portland won't hire white men to run their organizations, and increasingly won't hire white men to be on staff. (Not even being homosexual is enough to overcome being white and male.)

White heterosexual women are also increasingly being shunned.

This means that "progressive" organizations in Portland are generally led by 1) white lesbians, or 2) Asians.

Well, I ran across a new acronym, which I had seen a few times, but didn't understand, called "BIPOC", which stands for Black/Indigenous People of Color. This, of course, is intended to remove intersectionality points from white lesbians and Asians, and make sure that only the truly deserving get credit for being oppressed.

Considering that Portland is 6.3% black and 1.0% Native American, it will be a challenge to staff all these do-gooder organizations with appropriate BIPOCs, but I'm sure that these "progressive" organizations will be up to the challenge.

The boast of one Portland "progressive" organization is no longer enough:

Our staff is 50% people of color, 100% women, 100% LGBTQ, 100% bada** and all are under the age of 35

We are franchisees and the parent company is acting as if it's business as usual.

I said, "Yeah, I recognize the voice." (duh)

She then proceeded to go on a long involved ramble about "... letting bygones be bygones, and we'd both found someone else, and ..."

I cut her off and said, "Let me guess, you want our marriage annulled." (She had married a Catholic.)

Shocked, she said, "Yeah, how'd you know?"

I said, "Send me the papers, I'll put down my side of the story PDQ as I wasn't the one with maturity issues."

450 A quick organ meats sketch:

Chicken or duck liver: Saute in olive oil, salt and pepper, do not overcook, ambrosial.

Chicken hearts: Saute in lard until crisp on the outside and just not-pink on the inside. Wonderful. No one seems to eat these, so I don't know why they're so hard to find.

Chicken gizzard: Simmer, slice thin, dress. Enjoyable meat platter option.

Pig kidney: A pain to trim, you need a really sharp, thin knife, but the Sichuan version of this is unbelievably good.

Pig liver: Not much experience with this, except in rice porridge, where it shines.

Pig intestines: Fried crisp on the outside, creamy inside. Um, cleaning is really important, guys. Awesome, though.

Calves liver: Really good, but you have to be restrained in the cooking. The moment the pink almost vanishes from the very center of the slice is the moment to eat it. Overcooked, it is horrid.

Adult cow liver: This tastes disgusting. Do not eat.

Beef/pork tripe: cook until soft. Needs serious flavors to make it edible. Curry works.

Goose intestines: Surprisingly noodle-like. No flavor. Great texture. Spicy sauce and served cold is the way to go.

Never had lamb kidney, but Nero Wolfe says to broil it and brush with mustard sauce.

487 "Baby Blue" was written by Ham for a young woman he met in Wichita Kansas, who took up with him and followed the group around the country during their first US tour. He promised to keep in touch and, well, you guys know about that.
But he always felt badly about it so he wrote this song for "Dixie dear". I grew up in Kansas and live in Wichita, so whenever I hear this song I wonder how a Kansas girl felt having a huge hit song/love letter written to her by a British rocker.

551 Tonight at sunset, I posted up at my front gate. There were many people coming down the sidewalk, couples, some on bikes in the street, others pushing strollers with babies or toddlers, I greeted each one with a smile and " Hey , how are you?" "Beautiful evening, hope you are doing well."

Most (not wearing masks) greeted me equally as well. Some even pushed their strollers up my walkway so I could get a view of their children, and then wished me well.

I stayed out there till the sun was down. There was the occasional solo walker with a mask that just waked on by without an acknowledgement...(no doubt still locked into some self imposed total quarantine.)

I was just reaching out, to re-connect, with my fellow humans....

there is hope.

One of them says "show me ONE THING that can stop one of these babies". I was shaving, and without stopping -said "How about an A-10"? All them turned and looked at me and one asked " and WHO the F are you?"
"Just your friendly ROMAD that will make sure when those A-10's come in for close air support that none of you guys will have armor piercing rounds bouncing around inside your cans."

Now you're just messing with me. Not that Menudo, the ethereal spicy tripe soup. I figure you know that. A few months ago, I was at a local Mexican flea market, and picked out a food truck based on its vibes and its perfect paint job and the crowd, and got, in a Styrofoam cup, some of the best Menudo I've ever had. They had only one question when I ordered it: beef bone, or no beef bone. Of course I chose the beef bone, which had gnawable things on it.

577 >> Tube or tubeless?

Tube. I know some of the big boys have been running tubeless radial on tractors for some time now. The problem there is you can't put water (and CaCl) solution in them because it corrodes the rims, so they just use big rear wheel weights.

These big boys actually do better (for one or two man) jobs to do it right on the tractor. Jack it up, then break it down right on the tractor. To patch the tube, you just have to pull on side off the rim.

But it's a bitch to do. You've got to get the water out, which requires filling it with air, with the stem at the bottom and blowing the water out. Takes a couple or three cycles to do it. And then you've still got a belly of water in the tube, because the stem is at rim height.

It's a bitch.

My local tire shop in Alberta does a lot of Ag tires. They have air-powered pumps to suck the calcium chloride brine out of the tubes.

On my little International, a rear tube leaked. I was able to get the wheel dismounted (it's about chest-high on me), and flop it onto my flat-deck trailer. Took it to the tire shop, and they sucked out the brine, and I brought the rusty rim home, and welded up the bad spots, and painted it. Then the tire shop remounted the tire and refilled it.

I was in Mexico once and had Menudo Soup. They had the intestine all cut up into rings, floating in the soup, and you could see all the villi on the inside of the rings, like little worms. It had a foul smell, like old sewage, but I was determined to prove I could eat the real thing, and didn't want to look bad in front of my co-travelers. I made one good big spoonful of it, swallowing it down, and setting my brain to racing "think about anything else, think about anything else" and I smiled and acted like it was great.

and then the weirdest thing happened - I went to take a second bite, and my hand stopped about halfway to my mouth. I was thinking "no you have to do this! It isn't that bad!!!" and yet my hand decided to go completely rogue, and absolutely refused to get that second spoonful anywhere near my mouth. I tried begging, pleading - "don't make me look bad, come on!" but Nope. it just refused. So I just had to shake my head and admit defeat, and have another margarita instead.

I think I'd pay money to watch a NY Times writer or better, editor try to change a tire. Nothing fancy, just a passenger car tire. And just get the wheel off the axle.

That reminds of me of a Pawn Stars episode. They had managed to get a hold of a practice bomb somehow. Chumley was very wary of it, afraid it might explode.

The Old Man said, "Chum, you don't have to worry about that, it's a practice bomb, a dud!" Chumley replied, "I don't know, they always say that practice makes perfect." The Old Man gave him a look and shook his head.

Such a boat ought to be worth several million dollars new. Why was it taken out of service? What's the hull made of? Is the hull corroded or otherwise unfit for service? The buy-it-now price of $13000 sounds like scrap value to me.

Would it be sufficiently seaworthy to make it from Hawaii to the mainland under its own power? Does it carry enough fuel?

626 Was just reading about the making of the original Back To The Future.

Has anyone here ever seen any of the footage of when Eric Stoltz was playing the role of Marty McFly? Supposedly there's a version of the film in the vaults that's almost complete, with Stoltz playing the lead.

I just read that Spielberg and Zemeckis were actually in on a plot to sabotage Stoltz, because they both always really wanted Michael J Fox for the role.

630 That Torpedo Retriever is going to take about $100k work to set right, given it's present state.

Was that boat crewed by Active Duty USN Sailors, or DOD Contract Crew?

Looking at the un-repaired wear, worn paint and unkempt condition, I'd wager that it was Contract Crew.

I've been aboard U.S.N. Diesel Electric "Guppy" class subs (upgrade to WWII Fleet Class design), which were at or near the end of their service life, and they were in MINT condition compared to the boat in that ad.

Any of you Blue Water USN types care to comment on this one?

I cannot imagine an Active Duty USN Chief allowing HIS boat to fall into such a state of disrepair.

And an Officer's OER from that one would take Career Ending Damage.

Oh, and for Horde usage? Close in the transom, torch out the torpedo ramp, and weld IN conventional decks, bulkheads and more crew quarters.

Above decks, just weld up a solid deck, with a welded steel "cover", itself rated for however many people it'd take to hit the limits of High Center of Gravity and righting moment.

THEN, it could be a Horde Party Boat.

My version would be less Party, and more Armaments.

643 A boat like that can easily cruise from Hawaii to San Diego.

It's just going to carry a few extra 500 gal. fuel bladders on deck and secured to the torpedo ramp, to do it.

But I wouldn't trust it to do so, until I had a crack team of former USN sailors in every needed rating, working to bring every system in that boat back up to Active Duty condition, and then a series of torturous Sea Trials to hard-test each and every one of those systems.

And then sail with the core of that crew, who would also be the Damage Control Party, underway.

Give her a Maintenance Period in San Diego, perhaps a few days in dry dock and another short Sea Trial, then set course for Panama and Points East.

With lots of chipping, sanding, painting and "making-right" while underway, with the goal of landing at Galveston, in Bristol Condition.

She has enough life left in her, based on the Hobbs Meters (engine hours), that she deserved to be a Proud and Fit Ship, once again.

If it were sitting at the dock in Seattle or Tacoma, and I could buy it for $13000, I would do it, and then find a place to drag it onshore, and scrap it out. If the hull is aluminum, and i think it might well be, it would be worth a pretty penny as scrap, and the engines, gensets, reversing gears, and prop shafts would all have good scrap value, too.

After I torched out the torpedo ramp, I'd weld-in a massively reinforced aft deck, flush with the gunwales.

With suitable below-decks engineering, electrical and hydraulics, I'd drop in an M1-A2 Abrams turret. The full system. In a Barbette mounted high enough above the aft flush deck, so as to give the 120 mm gun it's full range of depression at all angles of it's swing.

7.62 minigun on the foredeck. M-240s amidships, port & starboard.

Might not carry mortars aboard a moving deck, but M-79 grenade launchers are prime direct fire weapons for small craft that may have eluded the 7.62s.

Oh, we'll still be a PARTY boat.

Bring the Mains and Gennies up to full operating temps for at least forty minutes.

Shut 'em down, pull oil and coolant samples, and send them off to Stewart & Stephenson for full lab analysis.

They'll tell you to an amazing degree of accuracy, just how much wear the engines have endured, and project to a lesser degree of prediction, an idea (not warrantied) of how much life MIGHT remain in each.

Given the replaced Hobbs, and the general state of dis-repair throughout.

I'm thinking this is a Hull Value Salvage, with various bits of engines, transmissions and gennies, as bonus funds.

Truthfully, I don't even see one notable bit of Naval Décor to keep, as seen in the photos.

If her engines have life, so does she.

If not, it's to the breaker with her. Sad to say, but a glue horse IS a glue horse, when it's all said and done.

My wife and I do deliverance ministry. It was not something I ever wanted to be involved with but didn't really have a choice back in the mid-nineties. It's about 98% pleasant and 2% drama.

Every Christian should be able to perform deliverance. It's not just for the clergy or for super-Christians.

With someone as young as this girl sounds, my first thought is that someone close to her is deeply involved in the occult, though there are other possibilities.

There are things you can do to protect your daughter and your family. Nothing weird. If you feel comfortable praying before a meal, asking for protection isn't any different.

686 ..you misspelled Mk-19 grenade launchers, and the larger Brown Water Navy forces in RSVN had 81mm mortars (breech loaded?)

upgrade them to 120mm, maybe with terminal munitions, and a 30mm goalkeeper there someplace?

and Hellfire launchers, adapted from the eisting sore instalations i read about way back when.

Posted by: redc1c4, ONT Rx tech at April 28, 2020 01:25 AM (dlZr1)



I'd find deck space for the Mk 19s, otherwise, a strong NO to everything else.

The Riverine Boats were launching mortars into jungles to counter hostile fire there.

We'd be taking on Venezuelan Naval/Pirate boats.

Hellfires "make sense", but are a hell of an encumberance in terms of tech, maintenance at sea, etc.

That 120 mm. stabilized Abrams Smoothbore is going to be pretty much what's needed out there, I think.

Otherwise? KISS applies.

I'd really like to use 20 mm Vulcan on the foredeck, and 20 mm single barrel cannon amidships.

But weight, bulk ammo stowage, and other considerations, abound.

Now, some anti-missile FLARES and CHAFF?

We can find space to weld up the mounts, I'm sure.

Sparkly Vampires.

Girls owning the Force and then suddenly kicking the shit out of every Male in existence, even if they are better trained and larger than her.

Sadly, it sets young girls up with false expectations of what the world is. So WHEN they fail, it is of course not their fault, but some Evil MALE overlords twisted geniuses fault.

One that is imaginary, and thus can never really be defeated, leading to despair.

689 AOP with all due respect to Navy personnel, and I do respect them immensely, you could split that boat in two and sell the halves to various collectors for more than you paid in the first place. If I owned a bar and wanted to attract a certain type of clientele, I'd mount half of that ship right along a huge wall.I wish I had millions of dollars. I'd buy my own nursing homes too, and I would hire only American workers and I wouldn't have let thousands of people die.

Small boats are almost impossible to hit with a mortar, they are moving targets.

30mm, and Ma Deuce were the weapons of choice on me Destroyer,

even with the Camera controlled CIWS and 5 inches of loving available.

Hellfires need a targeting system, usually a laser designator illuminating the target.

And in choppy seas? Its just plain hard to keep that on target (I know, we tested some of this stuff back in the 80's).

Optical Pattern Recognition sighting systems are to my view, the most difficult of all systems to defeat.

They require ultra-fast processors and huge embedded databases of various targets from all possible aspect angles.

That would have been a challenge, in the '90s.

Now?

Why the fuck ain't we doing ALL of our terminal guidance this way, now?

"system 'sees' planform of enemy target, be it daylight, night vision, FLIR or etc. Locks on. Can't be defeated by radar jamming, flares or anything else. Filters out counter-laser 'dazzle'. Computes speeds via doppler shift on 'size' of target on sensor chip, vs. self-platform scale. Computes closing angles. Maintains same until closure & detonation"

Modern cel phones have the imaging and computing power to do all this, and more.

700 @688 - I don't have a problem with the Harry Potter type stuff, as it seems to borrow a lot from British tales and is up the alley of C.S. Lewis. There's a book called "Looking for God in Harry Potter" by a man named John Granger, and he describes that kind of magic as "incantational" - basically a set of words causes some magic to happen. As in the show "Bewitched", it's kind of a gimmick to tell a story. "Invocational" is what he calls the type of magic where one is messing with spirits and the like, and it's the type that can get very dangerous very fast. He even argues that the three "unforgivable curses" in HP are so because they do cross the line into the invocational - that they necessarily mess with the free will of the victim. (Using that metric, though, there was even stuff in "Sofia the First - a Disney show for preschool girls - that started getting weird.)

It was a huge story over here for quite awhile (though we don't watch news on tv) about the girls who tried to stab another girl and almost killed her trying to "please Slenderman", but wouldn't you know it, a couple of years ago already, my daughter brought up Slenderman at home because she had heard about him from a friend. As much as our stupid governor, Evers, would have us locked up at home for months on end, it's not like I can control all the stuff that comes to her. Right now it's just a constant effort to try to convince her that no matter how "weird" her parents are, she needs to trust us on the staying away from the spirits type stuff.

There are a lot more trains coming through than usual. About 10 years or so ago, we became a "no horn" little city, but they do blow the horns at the rural crossings before and after. We can hear them at night, when it is quiet. But it seems like this night they are blowing the horns at all the crossings in town. Maybe that's why it seems like there are more coming through.

That said, if this is being done with the least bit of "yay environment!!" promotion then I don't understand this at all. Not one bit. Fine, electric airplanes. Great. Now show me exactly where you saved any energy whatsoever producing them, producing and installing the charging pads, producing the special tools, trucks, etc. for maintaining them, etc. Cradle to grave, compared to existing technology that is well established and requires no new resources. Go.

If you want to fly electric airplanes because electric airplanes are cool, then go for it. If you're pretending to save the earth then I'll suggest you're just transferring energy. Trading one end point for another, and using exactly the same amount of energy to get there, which means we're wasting it.

That's the key. It's an economic job-creation program to allow for lots of grafts and kickbacks and glad-handing while accomplishing very little and more likely wasting resources. Remember, the work and manpower put into this could be going to something else.

Ah, man. A couple of cups of Cafe du Monde chicory coffee and a plateful of beignets is a Nah'lins staple, a food group all its own.

A beignet is a non-stuffed fried dough coated with powdered sugar. Light and airy, better than any donut, well, except maybe for the flashing light Krispy Kremes hot out of the fryer. I'll call that a tie.

Stores here* won't let you in without a mask. Since masks are not available, I've taken to wearing the Wild West robber kerchief on my face, just so I can go shopping for food and prescriptions. It truly sucks. My glasses fog up when I wear the damn thing. And I feel like I can't breathe, either.

One of my great-uncles had a tobacco farm,

----------

We had tobacco and soybeans as cash crops when I was little.
Most tobacco grown in the US is cigarette filler, with notable exceptions like Connecticut wrapper (which isn't necessarily grown there.)
Sherlock Holmes smoked a tobacco from a Louisiana parish that is fermented for like 5 years, and currently costs the same as some Davidoff wrapper, 70 bucks a pound. I've had some (in a Russian export cigarette; very good).
Regular pipe tobacco is about 15 dollars a pound.

858 Maybe I'm dense or something but what the hell DeWine. I haven't been required to wear a mask, it's been suggested, but not required while shopping retail. Now on 5/11 it's required. And where exactly will people be buying these masks since I couldn't find any immediately available? So all of those WuFlu germs will automatically be more potent when the rest of our retail establishments open up.
I have one real mask and I use it when I go to mom's assisted living home to drop off supplies to the front desk.
Also, still will not be able to have my hair cut but the dog can finally have her nails trimmed and her anal glands expressed. No sense to any of this.

860 The odd thing is that I'm doing fine in the shaving department. Partly. I sport a "Commander Riker" beard (though I grew mine in 1988 some months before Jonathan Frakes turned up with his), and that needs frequent trimming with an electric trimmer. But the cheeks, lower lip, and throat all need to be planed off every 2 days. And that's actually kind of fun, as I have an array of vintage razors (and just ordered a new Merkur), plenty of blades, and several good soaps and creams.

In a pinch, good old-fashioned Barbasol in a can works great.

It's been a while since I smoked or even looked at pipe tobacco; I miss the scents. The Lousy-ana stuff is perique, I think? Too heady to be smoked by itself, it has to be blended. I don't remember perique being mentioned in the Holmes stories, but I think Latakia tobacco turned up at least once.

I never cared for the "English" blends like that. They smelled too much like a tire shop. I liked the chocolate and even cherry blends.

That's close enough.
The Holmes ref was in one of the movies, and come to think of it, it might not of been his smoke, but the name was prominently displayed when he picked up his blend. It seemed an Easter egg.

I'm not sure what a funnel cake is, but a beignet is pretty much the same thing as a sopaipilla, the little flaky pastries New Mexico restaurants park on your table along with honey. The green chile flames you out, you pour some honey on a sopaipilla and take a bite, and it cuts the burning way down. (The honey works by itself, though.)

Only difference is that the beignet is caked with white powdered sugar.

I saw an interview from Phil Collins once. He was famous already at the time he first met Paul McCartney. He said McCartney was so arrogant and full of himself and made Phil know how lucky he (Phil) was to be meeting with the former Beatle. Collins was hurt by it for a while, then it was more of an eff you attitude towards McCartney.
