    Hurricane Michael

    Didn't see a post and was surprised given it is looking to affect us in a couple of days. This thing turned into a beast in no time due to all the warm water in the Gulf. Currently standing at a Cat 4 with sustained winds at 145mph. May actually get a bit stronger before landfall...

    Another example of the PC cultural changing what is acceptable ........

    https://www.yahoo.com/lifestyle/tess-holliday-criticised-magazine-cover-promoting-obesity-085610873.html I am not one to ever insult a person over their weight. Lord knows, I've had my struggles and realize it's a challenge for many. And I am not even bothered with putting a heavier girl on...

    Is this now acceptable for early 20-somethings?

    So this was a first for me. I hit the local 7-11 in Prince Frederick this morning at around 5AM - give or take. Walking in behind me were two white girls that I'd put at being in their early 20's. To be honest, at that time of morning, it's usually tradesmen (construction workers, etc.) or...

    In the market for a pool table ........

    Hi all - Forum's been a bit slow and I don't participate often 2nd Amendment discussions so hopefully no one takes offense to this approach. But if it matters ...... I am an active NRA member :duel: Been scouring Craigslist and the classifieds keeping an eye out for a used pool table...

    Ladies - A Friendly Reminder Concerning Today's Signifigance ........

    Low and behold, the day is upon us. Not only is this a memorable date for all math geeks ("Pi Day"), today also marks a significant milestone in the advancement of equal rights for all men alike. Yes, that is correct, today is the officially recognized "holiday" that is referred to as "Steak...

    Cutting the cord ...... Need some guidance/feedback.

    The family and I are counting down the days until our new house is finally built and ready to be occupied. In the coming weeks, we need to start making arrangements for the various utility hookups and switchovers. This has brought us to the conversation of cable TV and whether we want to do...

    Rt. 4 Police this AM

    In my new travels up and down Rt. 4, I've noticed a lot of police presence up above Huntingtown. This isn't a bad thing IMO. However, on two separate mornings this week, I've seen the same type of behavior by police that I thought was quite off putting. This morning, I am cruising up Rt. 4...

    So ..... what can you tell me about St. Leonard?

    With the sale of our Waldorf house, we've finally managed to get into the rental in St. Leonard this past weekend. Nice place right on the Bay. Quite the hike in terms of commute but beggars can't be choosers when looking at short term rentals. The area seems decent. Some nice places...

    Splitting a whole cow? Anyone done this?

    Found an old thread but nothing within the last few years so I thought I'd ask. My wife and I have been kicking around the idea of going in on a whole cow with another family or two. The reading we've done all indicates that it makes sense financially if you can absorb the upfront expense...

    Selling my boat. What are my options?

    Figured this was as good a place as there was to solicit information. I've decided to sell my boat (1991 Parker 2110) as part of our plan to move. Boattrader seems pretty expensive and fairly tough to navigate. I worry that a perspective buyer would need to be very specific in what they...

    Selling house without a Selling Agent?

    Wife and I have been talking about moving for a couple years now. We'd contacted a real estate agent we used before and expressed this was a very relaxed "interest" and many things needed to happen in order to move sooner vs. later. Based on that, we looked at a few places a couple years back...

    Bathroom Remodel (Bathtub replacement) - Any suggestions?

    Hi all. I am looking for any recommendations that you can offer concerning a local contractor who can do some bathroom remodeling work. I have access to Angie's List but rather talk to "real" people who can offer their insight based on their own personal experiences. I discovered I have a...
