    Ice Cream Flavor of the Week

    B.S......simply homemade vanilla

    Interesting on many levels:

    Cables, Coffee, and Cocktails

    When I lived in the suburbs of downtown Lone Oak, TX I had a free standing wood stove. I fed it once a day after work, took about 3/4 cord a year, had to have the window cracked a bit with damper barely cracked and fans off. Yes, I see the required water pots to humidify on yours. https://www.google.com/maps/place/Lone+Oak,+TX+75453/@33.00572,-95.8514085,235m/data=!3m1!1e3!4m5!3m4!1s0x864bd90839b56397:0x43fdf629fdb4f2ca!8m2!3d32.9967846!4d-95.9402451 A fireplace is VERY inefficient, all the warm air is draft out the chimney. Granddad had a 4' fireplace on a 20' harth. Sit close and burn...back up and be cold.

    Those are expensive here probably would last two years due to corrosion. We haul off 30-50 pallets a week from work so there is a supply.

    Cables, Coffee, and Cocktails

    except that a fireplace here is used for looks not heat and I haven't seen a wood stove since I left north Tx 19 years ago. Wife and female child would love a fire since it's in the 50's today but the Cornwalls and equipment rack would have to be moved. https://corpuschristi.craigslist.org/search/grd?query=firewood&sort=date

    Need help buying new TV, old one died

    I have heard that all the displays have the reds pushed. Ask for the remote and neutralize all the colors.

    Synthetic Motor Oil.....

    Nitrogen vs air...BS unless you are constantly over heating the tires by grossly over speeding or friction (either of which would be outside tire design) or altitude changes (BIG AZZ changes). Keep your quarters. Just for the record the reason N2 is used is because it has less moisture content therefore less changes in overt pressure due to temperature changes. At 30-40 PSI in street tires this pressure change is negligible. At 200 MPH for hours or in an aircraft tire at altitude well then we can talk.

    Forte III single - $399

    That sux. I might do a re-glue / fix BUT it would certainly be less than the price you paid after the seller decided to pay shipping back or hand over $$$. Unfortunately, this is not the first rodeo of this type with this seller.

    Synthetic Motor Oil.....

    as in the case of my 1970 Boss 302 Mustang. Cold north Tx morning, girl's car won't start, grabs Mustang keys, starts, late for work, doesn't let oil warm, launches, filter blows off, motor melts down

    Synthetic Motor Oil.....

    Same reason tire repair shops charge more to mount / repair 20” tires than smaller diameter....BS.

    Synthetic Motor Oil.....

    The F119 engine in the F22 uses oil debris monitoring measured in PPM rather than chip detectors.

    Synthetic Motor Oil.....

    Wouldn’t need to be in the filter. A pressure differential between inlet and outlet passages would take care of that assuming that constant sized filter media is used.
