  1. Except about 30% were built with counter-clockwise.   Some,  including in the Tower of London complex have both  in the same  building.   

     

    The wall to the right of the guy coming down will inhibit his swing. 

     

    The guy coming up can go Roman,  have his sword along side of his shield, and thrust up at the guy coming down.   Or chop overhand at his feet.

    My knowledge of fava beans is solely that there is an allergy -not me.

     

    I've found a few receipts for using fresh fava beans to make falafel.   Also several for Middle Eastern salads.

    Pimento cheese? Get a rope!

     

    HERETIC!!!  Pimento Cheese is a most sublime culinary treat!  Crowning crackers, enhancing sourdough bread, filling griddle cheese sandwiches,  topping sliced tomatoes- preferably on a broiled open faced tomato and onion sandwich, smothering a patty of 80/20 ground beef on a burger.   AH!  Culinary bliss!

     

     

    I agree about that ham and banana abomination.  I've never had it, and just reading about it makes me gag.

    What is "aspic"?  It sounds like something you'd get out of your nose.

     

    It's the gelatin you get from boiling down beef bones.

    Then you use that to hold together various  savory elements,  usually  in a mold of some sort. Aspics were once very popular. Lord knows why.

  5. Fewer and fewer veterans,  and,  I think,  a lower percentage  of them joining veterans organizations.   So fewer people to man the tables.

    Salutes always use a reduced charge. Why wear out the barrel, etc,?

     

    I'm not saying that they should be using the full 8 pound charge. but part of the reason they fire those salutes is public entertainment.  Going from 8 pounds down to less than half a pound, and from a gun modified to us a 40mm shell no less, in my mind robs the public.  

    And, to wear out those tubes, which will never see shot nor shell through them, nor chain, grape, or canister, would take centuries.

    Give it at least a 2 pound charge to produce an appropriate amount of smoke.

    My son has that white Shelby in your picture and it stays filthy but we live on a dirt road .  He got it used with a lot of miles on it so the original owner drove it a lot.  
     

    I’ve thought since the Tesla is bullet proof and has a covered bed I would put a small gas generator in the bed to charge it with and put steel bumpers front and back .  

     

    The 1 in 500.

  8. I'm surprised that you responded at all.  

     

    Re phone calls.   I get legitimate phone calls from my health insurance company from various 800 numbers,  so I do answer them.   But,  when the call goes,  "May I speak with Joseph Lovell?"

    "Speaking."

    "Is this Joseph Lovell?"

    "Speaking."

    If the person pushes for a yes or no answer I just hang up.

     

    Past that, any other questions I try to answer with anything but  "Yes."  Again,  if pressed with,  "I need you to say yes" when  I  give some sort of affirmative response,  I hang up.  

     

    The calls I get about,  "Have you received your monthly benefit card yet?" I say, "No, not yet.   Please send it.  You have my number so you have my address."  Then I  hang up.

    My wife started a book club 20 years ago.  This sounds like it should be on their list.  
     

    Title and author?

    The e-book has already been released, which is what my wife has.  You can find Maggie Weber on Youtube and Instagram as "Refashioned Hippie" and her videos are a hoot.  An example:
     

     

     

     

    Also available on Kindle Unlimited, which is where my wife is reading it.

    I still think that “truck” looks like something from a bad “B” Sci-Fi movie of the 60’s.

    Just like most pickups I  see on the road look like B post-apocalyptic movie fare that will never feel dirt or carry more than groceries or a flat of pansies.

  12. I've never cared for Vienna Sausages, which is odd because I like hot dogs right out of the package.  Tuna Noodle Casserole I never really had, but I did have creamed tuna over noodles or crushed crackers, more or less the same thing. Had turkey a la king, again, same thing as the chicken version.  Loved liver and onions, especially the caramelized onions when they got a little crispy.

    Waldorf Salad is a "never again" for me.  

    Never had the "tomato surprise" but have had stuffed tomatoes.  Depends on the stuffing .
    That ham and banana abomination....no, just no.
    Creamed shrimp?  Never had it but it seems like a cross between shrimp chowder and shrimp ala king. 
    Egg salad aspic?  No....pretty much any aspic....just no.
