  1. What's the right Showers to Days ratio?

    Sounds like a "Bert and I". Will try to find it later. Guy gets hauled before a judge about being dirty.
  2. Show me your watches. :)

    Nice 992 pw. A little newer than mine, 1923 iirc. Have you had it serviced? A must if you use it. Bernie
  3. this will make you smile....

    Louis Armstrong, best college concert I ever went to, brought the packed house down, memorial gym, Umaine, Orono, circa 1968-69.. better than The Association or The Loving Spoonful, etc.
  4. Sleep Apnea?

    It may take awhile to figure out the right mask. Make sure the therapist tries several on you before you settle on one. I have had 3 different ones before I got the right one.
  5. The most memorable teacher I ever had.

    Sky, your stories and writing style remind me so much of my childhood listening to Gene Shepard "Shep". Shep had a radio show every night on WOR New York and a live 2 hr show sat night from the Limelight in grinidge village. One of his books, In God we trust, all others pay cash, turned into...

  7. Maine’s EMS is teetering on the brink of collapse

    I'm from Pa. Was a volunteer EMT-A, first graduating class in the county(Bucks). Pay, $0.00/hr. Mid 70's. Most of Pa is still volunteer Fire/EMS as I understand it. The big city's had paid. Bucks Co. touches Phila. to the north. I saw it all, including a navy Jet fighter at Johnsville...
  8. Snowblower / small engine guys...

    Interesting idea, smaller pulley on engine. Both drive pulleys are split. If I add a washer at the split, the belt will ride lower and effictively reduce pulley diameter, ie smaller pulley. I may try that and look at the geometry and see what happens. Simple is better... Tnx, Bernie

  13. Should corporate banners fly on the same pole under the American Flag?

    Only my opinion, but highest staff: us flag with pow/mia under it. Use another pole for whatever else you want to fly. My late fil was a pow Normandy landing Utah beach. Escaped after 10+ months of forced labor. In my mind he earned the respect of that flag the hard way... Bernie
  14. Safety Razor vs Cartridge Razor Who's Using What?

    Full beard here, currently use "dollar shave club" two blade or four blade to time cheeks and neck. In college used straight edge. I have a couple of them, but lost my leather strop, no clue where it is. To cheap to buy a new one. Maybe some day I will get back into the straight edge. For...
