  1. One of the things that American WWII subs offered that no other ship in service had was air conditioning. Not that this for the comfort of the crew. Its intended purpose was to remove moisture from the air which was hard on the electronics like radios, radar and torpedo firing computers. Some sailors volunteered for sub duty because they thought it better than serving in the stifling heat below decks of surface vessels of the Pacific.
  2. Sexiest actress past and present to ever grace the screen.
  3. I agree with PRC. Based on this and PWB images, it's no older than a '66 when the sculpted side panels were introduced. Seems the Plymouths were the ones adorned with the chrome trim at the C-pillar and fender union. Were they doing vinyl roofs in '66, or was that a '67 introduction?
  4. I moved the Kansas City area almost 45 years ago, so the Chiefs are the team to watch and root for. I'm not much of a televised sports fan because of all the commercial interruptions and over-the-top hype, but it is entertaining from time to time. We've found games to be more enjoyable with the sound turned down to where crowd noise is barely audible and announcers can't be understood. Gad, those "color" commentators are annoying. Tony Romo was OK when he first started out, but now he's one of the most irritating of all. After this game, we feel we can finally believe the Chiefs are for real. For decades, they've been known to find creative ways to crush the souls of fans with bone-headed losses. For that reason, the national sports media has never given them much respect, including this year. A couple of games this season had that vibe, but somehow they adjusted. With this win, the first SB win no longer feels like a fluke. Mahomes might be MVP, but dang there are lot of players who made that happen. Kelce, Pachecco, McKinnon, JuJu, Toney et al, not to mention the offensive line and defense. Because of these guys, I'm hoping the announcers and media will finally stop talking about how handicapped the Chiefs are/were without Tyreek Hill. Dang, that topic came up every broadcast. It was a solid business decision to trade him. Anyway, it was a great shootout of a game which is rare for Super Bowls. Oh, and that holding call on Philly near the end? The player admitted he was in fact holding and it was the right call. He also said he was holding earlier in the game and the refs missed it.
  5. Glad to hear it! My knee required two revisions after the original because it didn't fit right. Third time with a different doc took care of it. Hope your recovery continues to go well!
  6. So we’re watching the game which is allegedly a showcase for the most lavish and creative ads on TV. There’s a lengthy set up where you wonder what the product or service is, and then the logo appears. For the life of me, I can’t make a connection or remember who the advertisers are. WTH?
  7. Lots of options here https://www.google.com/search?q=humphrey+bogart+hat&ie=UTF-8&oe=UTF-8&hl=en-us&client=safari
  8. Are you talking about C&B? OP is talking about cartridges and powder coated bullets.
  9. The operative word in all of those prefaces is “but..”. That word often cancels the preface.
  10. It's in the same league as "bless your heart".
  11. Timely thread. I did one of the ignition on/off thingees yesterday, and out popped a CD that’d been stuck for almost 2 years.
  12. Old joke with many variations that never gets old. It’s funny every time.
  13. Here’s a post he made yesterday which you can use to send a pm (scroll down)
  14. Melinda Dillon of Close Encounters of the Third Kind and A Christmas Story has passed at 83. Thanks for some fun films. RIP

  16. I’ve had a coyote cap gun for a number of years, but shot it only occasionally. I made a commitment to shoot more classic cowboy and acquired a TTN 1878 which went down two years ago with a broken mainspring, and remains down due to unavailability of a replacement spring. So I went to the ‘87. It took awhile, but I finally figured out how to hold the shells to load it reliably and am getting even smoother with practice and time. Shot a clean match with it at this past Land Run. Love the gun!
  17. Cool! I’ve never seen color case hardening on an original ’87. Just me, but I wouldn’t modify it if that means cutting the barrel.
  18. In the case Cyrus mentioned, the drone was flying below the top of the fence inside the dad’s yard. That was the deciding factor in the jury’s verdict.
