  1. Working on this post grad thing. I have an obnoxious amount of books I have read for this, am reading, or started and sat down. I am reading these currently.
  2. We're on vacation and shot a couple of things while here. Very historic Georgtown, SC with houses dating back to the mid 1700's and live oaks over 500 years old.
  3. @joessportster haha yeah we’re all pretty whipped but momma is looking to hide. She ended up with a surprise puppy long after we thought she was done. So it 10 total. 5 yellow, 5 black.

    Any Knife guys?

    Ordered, received and used my first westone on my old Henkles. I have a lot to learn about sharpening, but these are sharper than they have been on well over 20 years. $22.99 on Amazon https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B07ZZG7V31/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_asin_title_o01_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1

    I am wanting something to cut and trim meat that we are preparing at home. So, this wont be something I use 10-14 hours a day like the pro's do. I have a buddy who was a sous chef 30+ years ago and he still has his knives from back then, they are Hinkles. Great knives, but as others have said, they are heavy, though no more than I'd use them, not sure that'd matter.

    Wow, $12, that looks like a nice knife for the money. I'll check that youtube channel out. I hadnt considered youtube for some reason. That would probably be a great way to understand sharpening.

    I have gotten into smoking meat this year and am considering upgrading my cutlery which is currently old, dull, and crappy. Curious if anyone makes knives or knows about knives? I am in the learning process. I have learned about D2 steel and 1095 steel. Anyone?
  10. Currently, I am reading a book titled, Neither Poverty Nor Riches: A Biblical Theology of Possessions by Craig Blomberg
  11. I have in the ballpark of 11,000-15,000 books with nearly 10,000 of those digital.
  12. @Shakeydeal 2 Questions on that gravity charcoal smoker. I assume you still use wood for the smoke flavor? Secondly, does the charcoal stay dry enough to leave in the hopper, or do you have to either use whats in there or take it out? @tromprof I am on their site looking at those. That 40" digital smoker is very interesting, and reasonably priced. Thanks all.
  13. I saw that at the Sportsman's warehouse I was at. it is the only charcoal one of these I have seen, I am glad you mentioned it because I was curious. It sounds like an excellent option.
  14. Anyone with any experience on these things. I am considering one of these, but not 100% certain how much I will smoke, so, I would want something that grills also. I know there are some deals out there. What is the best bang for the buck?
  15. My solution is to have a piece of glass cut to sit on top of the speaker with felt pads on the outer corners of the glass. That helps prevent future dents and scratches. Less than a week after unboxing my F3's, an electrician sat his drill on top of one of my speakers leaving a scratch. I was sick, he is a friend and I just try not to think about it.
  16. I absolutely agree. THE only downside to the F3 is how delicate the finish is. Otherwise, it is an outstanding sounding speaker and like you, I like the size in my medium sized room.
  17. I struggled finding a timbre match for my Forte iii's and a Heresy was a perfect timbre match, but wouldn't work for my wife. I ended up purchasing the B&K Sound CSC-1 from Bob Crites at the link below, which is a more traditional center channel, and the timbre match is phenomenal. I would fully expect it to match the Heresy iv as well. Good luck on your search. https://critesspeakers.com/csc-1-center-channel-speake.html
  18. I do recall having this as a kid (still have it actually), but I am certain it was bought for me.
  19. Rush Moving Pictures purchased around 1983
  20. Just from another perspective. Sometimes dysfunctions can be resolved in times like this. Hardships can play an integral role in reconciliation. Some of our perceptions of issues from the past might be nothing more than misunderstandings that can be cleared up by finding things that shed light on what was really happening, which can be very cathartic and bring closure on the deep wounds that are created in the mind which grow with every passing year. I know a bit about dysfunction within families and have learned a lot about the impact of reconciliation. I am sorry to hear about the situation as a whole.
  21. There is a Netflix series called Mars based on Elon Musks drive to set up a colony on Mars. It is interesting for sure. Personally, I have no desire to invest 8 years to be able to go to Mars, but, I am not opposed to the idea of others going.
  22. I have that book and skimmed through it. Excellent work. I have cited that book on a few occasions. Thanks for the reminder.
  23. This smells like click bait. Moving along.
