    OT...Kitchen Knives for home cooking

    Global knives are great - for me. But now having my knives custom made for me from a guy in Vermont. I don’t really need a third cleaver or 4th chefs style knife, but the guy does beautiful work. My wife has said you’re going to have $5k in knives by the time your done (that’s not true) but...

    OT: New Grill Advice

    I've had mine for so long I've forgotten when I bought it. I dispensed with the cover - it's used all year in upstate NY. I've had to replace burners, "flavor bars" and grates, but it's still cooking and cooking pretty darn well. Of course, I know the hot spots which makes a big difference.

    OT: Fishing

    Kayak for fishing are, ok. I’d much rather be in a self bailing raft like a Sotar or a low side Clacka drift boat. But I’m not a still water or salt person. My father does have a shallow draft 21’ parker stripped down for fly fishing. Its a great boat to fish out of

    Is Edsall trolling us?

    Hasn’t the entire second act to date been a troll job in the fan base?

    bourbon and such

    I get it, but i never bought to sell. I only sold the PVW because a friend of a friend wanted it for something and nobody i knows drinks bourbon so I'm going to drink it my myself - thats really no fun for a bottle like that. So i end up buying a lot in the 50-150 range for dailies. I...

    bourbon and such

    Be interesting to see if you can find it - I stopped by WP last year and most there had never seen a bottle of it, which I found odd, but unless you've been there since the beginning perhaps it's possible tjeyve never seem a bottle Im glad WP changed their approach a while back their BS cloak...

    bourbon and such

    For the life of me I can't understand how review writers do it. God bless you folks. I've been eyeing my stash of original BMH. I'm in the midst of deciding whether to put a lot into Sotheby's and fund another land cruiser restoration or just hold and drink. I did just finish a bottle of the...

    bourbon and such

    EC used to be age stated at 12years, but that stopped in ‘16, now it’s a mix of 8-12yo juice and its still very very good. Two great barrel proofs are Elijah Craig BP and Stagg Jr. The regular Stagg is allocated and you’ve have a hard time getting a bottle for anything near retail. Starting...

    bourbon and such

    Goodness i could do chapter and verse on this topic. I’ve got 150 bottle of bourbon and rye. Just ordered another 15 bottles from Astor. I started grabbing bottle in the late 90’s - i used to send friends PVW it was very easy to get. The 15 is the best version of PVW to me, but its not as good...

    California state university system cancels fall classes on campus

    Yeah it pretty much sucks and people learn differently and if you've been thrust into this as a teacher it really sucks. It's a totally different teaching conversation. There's an article in the journal (maybe) that talks about how colleges are investing in retraining professors to teach online...
