Re: Opinion of new Toyota Yaris

I'm a big fan of Toyota, my mother had one of the older model Yaris and she was rear ended going 60mph while crossing the Ohio River and she bounced off both sides of the bridge and walked away. The car looked like it was rolled down a mountain. It still started and ran afterwards too. That’s a goo...

Re: Oh Where Oh Where Has Our Little SEF Gone...

Yeah, it’s too bad. I wonder if he’d join under another user name?

I often see an article and think “SEF would like this.”

Opinion of new Toyota Yaris

Since I no longer have a motorcycle I am looking to buy my wife a small car I take over the other (older) car. We’ve been looking at the new Toyota Yaris since she likes hatchbacks. What do you all think of it?

Wife and pot holes

Since I got injured and my shoulder is painful I have noticed my wife has a penchant for hitting potholes and bumps. I sometimes wonder if she does this with a secret fiendish glee. She swears she is trying to miss them but I’ve noticed that when she swerves to “miss” them she hits them dead center....

Re: We are saved! Baseball Season is here!

I’m a Yankees fan, but I am not disappointed to see the Astros return to the WS. I am also happy enough that the Nats are going since Atlanta was knocked out and the Nats have never been to the WS. Still, I hope the Astros shank them and send them running home to momma crying.

Re: Micarta Chaparral

Much as I love Micarta, I don't think the Chaparral is the best vehicle for it. Micarta looks best when it's thick enough to be at least a bit rounded so the layers are visible. The Chaparral, at least so far, has featured thin flat scales. Still, if it was done with "original recipe" Micarta and n...

Re: No More Curvise Writing In Schools??

Cursive has been disappearing for quite a while. Friends in the UK tell me none of the schools in their areas teach it any longer. It should be taught. It has been shown that the practice of it is mentally beneficial. Along with the erosion of cursive writing is a corresponding erosion of grammar. T...

Fishing line through two button holes to anchor the sheath? A light shoulder harness like that for a small handgun? How about one of those stretchy waistband holsters?

Yeah, they tend to multiply. I got out my two Alox Cadets, pioneer, and Pioneer X today and put the Sharpmaker to them.


We need an Alox Cadet X.

My wife and I both love Spider-Man. She likes the Avengers but I only like the first Cpt America as it was more like his character originally.

Re: Neck Knives? Good or Bad?

People have had their para cord get caught in something with bad results. A break away chain is better but can still cause problems. And, as I said above, running can have issues, as well. I chipped a tooth and got a black eye from running and it bouncing up off of my chest forcibly.

Re: Family friendly jokes

A farmer is overseeing his herd when suddenly a brand-new car appears out of a cloud of dust and starts advancing towards him. The driver, a young man in a suit, leans out the window and asks the farmer: “If I tell you exactly how many cows and calves you have in your herd, will you give me a calf?”...

Re: Neck Knives? Good or Bad?

Generally I don’t like them. They are in the way and uncomfortable. However, there are times when nothing else is better. The ARK’s purpose is a good example. Most are too heavy, require two hands to re-sheath, and can knock out your teeth if you run with one.

Re: AEB-L vs 14C28N

I’d like to see how Spyderco would do 14c28n in a UKPK.but I think BD1N will out perform it. I don’t know because I don’t have that steel yet.
