    Knife maker coffee mug

    Google search shows lots of Kershaw coffee mugs (after filtering out Clayton Kershaw) and some for specific Kershaw knife models. It looks like the ceramics are all cylinder C-handle mugs, but I would drink from some of them.

    What watch do you wear?

    San Martin Stainless Steel Diver Homage Panerai Radiomir lookalike. (Gotta work on those names, guys.) Radiomir is from "radio," the radioactive radium paint once used for luminescence. The super expensive Panerai and my Chinese copy are an homage to a WW2 German diver's watch, the...

    What Books Are You Reading Right Now?

    Denis Diderot's The Nun. Of course there is a movie — more than one, in fact — and one you can watch for free, with beautiful Anna Karina. But in these cases, my choice is to read the book first.

    Can anyone identify this movie?

    I remember when I had a memory, and also a sense of smell. My internist says I may get smell back some day but no one nose:eek: One possibility I forgot: you may have seen it on DUST. According to IMDb IMDb was more useful before Amazon bought it in 2019, but it is still reliable for things...

    Can anyone identify this movie?

    This is the biggest list I could find of post-apocalyptic survival films. I didn't recognize yours but maybe you will. It lists 137, everything I'd heard of and a lot more, excluding only post-apocalyptic survival porn (which you can find elsewhere)...

    Coffee mug or tea cup

    History of the Victor coffee mug goes back to Fred M. Locke (1861-1930), a pioneer of the American electric industry. Fred invented wet process porcelain insulators for electric power lines. He patented his insulators in 1893 and founded Victor Insulators, Inc. of Victor, NY to manufacture them...

    Pfizer-BionTech vaccine First shot: no initial reaction, muscle soreness where injected 4 hours later like a typical flu shot. Five hours later, muscle cramping and fatigue; no fever, joint pain or difficulty breathing. NSAIDs and acetaminophen are not recommended before or after vaccination...

    Recommendation? Where to live in Florida?

    Don't buy a home on a flood plain. Don't build a home on a flood plain. Those homes and lots are cheaper, and with good reason. Don't fall for it! Concrete is the way to go, but you will find very few concrete homes for sale. If you can afford to build your own, think about stainless steel...

    10 year old interested in knives

    One day when I was 9, I ran into a friend on my block while walking to school. He said he had something to show me, and we stepped into an apartment building vestibule. "This is my dad's" he said, producing a 6" blade automatic stiletto. "Want to try it?" When I pressed the release button, the...

    What watch do you wear?

    With a fold-over clasp (not butterfly) it should be possible to find a replacement with 3 or 4 micro adjustment holes. This is a fold-over clasp with 2 micro adjustment holes. Measure bracelet width at the clasp and go shopping for a replacement with 3 or 4 micro adjustment holes. This is a...

    National VaccineFinder

    I just checked and they've nerfed their first web page. They used to show which states they covered — Alaska, Indiana, Iowa, Tennessee, Utah, Oklahoma and New York State (excluding NYC) as of last week. There is no friendly warning anymore, and that does not bode well. I checked Illinois and...

    Help me pick multi-tool or knife for graduation gift for my son.

    Texas! According to HB 1862 (2017) which applies statewide, he can pocket carry any knife with a blade less than 5.5 inches anywhere. Knives worn on the belt and knives with blades 5.5 inches or longer may not be carried in schools, school buses, bars and liquor stores, government courts and...

    Help me pick multi-tool or knife for graduation gift for my son.

    How old is your son, and in what state and city will he attend college? Knife carry laws vary wildly by city, county, state, and in some places by age. The last time I checked here in Chicago, the concealed (in the pocket) carry limit through age 18 was a 2" blade, and at age 19 we graduated to...

    Your Favorite Books

    It has been done more than once, but the stage can always use another. I saw one at Steppenwolf Theater in Chicago, I think it was Nevermore but hey it's almost 50 years ago! Scenes from Poe's stories and poems can make a very effective play about Poe himself. That works much better than trying...

    Artichokes?

    Her drink is called an Aperol Spritz: 1 to 1 or 2 to 3 Aperol and Prosecco, Cava, Champagne, any drinkable sparkling white wine in your spritzer budget (around here it's usually Cava) and a splash of seltzer. My wife doesn't drink, so I never open sparkling wine unless we have company. I...

    National VaccineFinder

    VaccineFinder has added Utah, Oklahoma and New York State (excluding NYC) to the original four states (Alaska, Indiana, Iowa, and Tennessee). Check it out if you live there! It is still useless in Illinois and the other non-supported states. A great idea which needs more adequate funding: at...

    Artichokes?

    The Campari Group is a big'un that buys other bitters distillers well known in the EU or at least in Italy. They bought Cynar in 1995 and Cynar TV commercials can be pretty funny, although not quite on the elevated crazy level of old Woodpecker Cider commercials. Campari is great stuff with...

    Artichokes?

    Pressure cooking sounds like overkill for an artichoke. It doesn't take long to steam, and butter, olive oil and lemon juice are good dressings if you want a dressing. Cynar is an artichoke flavored bitter liqueur manufactured by the Campari Group. Even if you love artichokes, taste it before...
