LOL, I have to agree. :lol: I use a cheap Casio diver's watch, good to 100 meters deep, which I figure that oughta hold up to the rain around here. Of course, the wind is an unpredictable variable,...

Yep, that's about when they start traveling again around here (the whole West coast probably). There's a giant holly tree right outside, that literally feeds hundreds or maybe thousands of birds,...

Sweet pics. :) I "might" get some time later to drop in down there, but it's a pretty good ride, by bike or bus, so I might not make it. :( Have fun, whoever goes. :)

Yep, you want a hand-cranked burr grinder, like the old Zassenhaus. They tend to cost a little more than you'd think, but they're worth the cost, for the quality you get. I have an old Zass...

I've been buying some pretty good Hawaiian coffee off & on lately, from one of those grocery warehouse type places. I bought a small bag of beans one day, just to get me through an off week, but it...

Welcome to the party. ;) I'm up all crazy hours anymore, without much regard to the rest of the world. But at least 3 days a week, the G-men do their thing for the apartment complex next door, around...

Cool. :) I've heard of those, but never seen one. It puts me in mind of bolt cutters, for heavy duty locks.

Ayup, I have a pretty old one made by Bodum, when they were still made in Denmark or Sweden, I'm not sure which, that has a nice metal mesh screen, & generally very well-made. For coffee grinders,...

I just recently converted back to a 130 rear wheel instead of an older 126, so I went from a 14-28 to a 11-34 on the rear end, and I've been using a 50-34 in the front. I'm not really a gear-head,...

It was brought to my attention a few short years ago, that by buying Campfire Girls candy (they just "look" like cookies), I was just proving my ignorance in these delicate matters. In fact, I was...

You don't want those, they look like the stock pulleys from their cheapest-made derailleurs. For most of us, the little aftermarket sealed cartridge bearing pulleys work best. Or do what I do, & buy...

Yep, it's normally in the 40sF here, breaking into the low 50s at times, and dipping down into the 30s pretty often at night. It makes me think of that GnR song, about the cold November rain. Would...

Awesome. I was just reading recently, that a marmot is sometimes called a ground squirrel, because they don't climb. Maybe we can re-name this thread to something about marmoT-Rex vs. T-Rex classic?...
