  1. Big difference. Most men have a sense of humor; though apparently fewer then I might have expected given some of the comments here. Seamus
  2. In California an owner can be liable for the actions of a negligent permissive user but, barring extraordinary circumstances, is only liable up to the minimum amount of insurance one is legally required to maintain. Seamus
  3. I recall being a youngster in Sunday School and the teacher was listing out various sins. Genuinely ignorant I asked him what adultery was. Crickets, I was totally ignored. After asking several more times with still no reply my friend whispered to me “I think it’s something adults do.” Never did find the answer until long after. Seamus
  4. Carradine was a star of one of my very favorite films; The Duellists. And he is excellent in it but unfortunately he was totally overshadowed by his co-star Harvey Keitel who gave one of the great performers in cinema history as his antagonist. Check it out. Seamus
  5. Wooden machine guns! So, taking away Elmer Fudd’s shotgun was not as unprecedented as we thought! Seamus
  6. Here is my grandfather’s watch. It’s a South Bend. The Studebaker family bought the watch company to compliment their automobile factory in the same city. I believe this was one of the last watches they made; they went out of business around 1930. This one is a pretty nice model, 18 caret gold, 21 jewels. Had it cleaned some years back and it’s kept great time ever since. Some of you no doubt will note that he was an Elk. Seamus
  7. Toff, Swell, Dandy, Fop, Dude, Blade, Boulevardier, Gallant, Rake. Lots of possible terms. The gray gloves really set off the ensemble in my opinion. Seamus
  8. Being over exerted was believed to make one susceptible to contracting polio so our municipal swimming pool every hour had a “polio break” where everyone had to exit the water and sit quietly for five minutes. Seamus
  9. Yup. Friend of mine lived in Florida part time and said when he visited the Bahamas places had those coke coolers filled with beer but every other slot was an empty bottle. That was to make up the price difference. He was in hog heaven since he was able to buy beer while well underage. Seamus
  10. Looking as the specs I still don’t understand how the Brits decided that 380-200 was equivalent to the .455 Webley. Seamus
  11. That IMDb list is pretty good. Three of the top four are by John Ford. Seamus
  12. Is he simultaneously shooting a SASS and Wild Bunch match? Looks like an SAA in his right hand and M1911 in his left. Seamus
  13. Bulleit Rye with a splash of soda for me most evenings while the wife sips Gentleman Jack on the rocks. Seamus
  14. Gene Pitney’s Liberty Valance and Lorne Greene’s Ringo Seamus
  15. My brother is a big Seinfeld fan. The plate on his old Miata was YADAX3. Someone already had it with a T so he settled for D. SEAMUS
  16. My nephew lives in the tiny community of Floriston, just outside Truckee on the Truckee river. Maybe 40 or so buildings up there now, all residential. But back in the day it as a thriving community built around the ice and timber trades. By damming the river they created large ice ponds to harvest in winter. I wonder how many small mountain towns have similar backgrounds. Seamus
  17. That happened in India back in the days of the British colonial Raj. Cobras were a menace so the gummit placed a bounty on them. Lots and lots and lots of cobras were brought in and lots of bounties paid. Then they started finding snake farms all over the place breeding the critters just fir the bounty. No system cannot be scammed. Seamus
  18. My first wife MAJORED in Home Ec at SFSU class of 1972. She sure could sew up a storm. Seamus
  19. We only got two of the big three networks where I lived. Once we traveled to visit my sister in Chicago and brought her our old TV set. As the folks were setting it up I helpfully informed Sis that “It works best on channels 2 and 13”. Seamus
  20. A $5 bag of BIC razors and a $2 can of Barbasol last me about a year. With a mustache and chin whiskers and shaving maybe twice a week it’s not much of an investment. Seamus
  21. I recall years back seeing the place in Vallejo with the submarine on the roof and later wondering whatever happened to it. Google shows that there is still a Horse and Cow bar in Bremerton WA and I believe there was one in San Diego fir a while. Be interesting to find out what happened to the sub. Seamus
