    OT: 90 Minute Thread: White Wine?

    I'm a big Starmont fan. Merryvale does a great job with their less expensive winery. We bought a bunch of the Starmont 2013 pinot noir up in NH for $19/bottle for a wedding last year - have a few bottles left and it's still drinking well - really a great wine for the price. Had a Gitton...

    OT: 90 Minute Thread: White Wine?

    Had a Matthiasson Rose over the weekend, not usually a big fan of rose but it was crisp and bright, probably the best rose I've had ($30+/-). Recommendation from my daughter, a recent graduate of the CIA WIne Management master's program! Anyone have any questions about wines, I can ask her...

    My daughter has a close friend from PR going to school in CA and she isn't allowed back quite yet. Not sure if its a full restriction or partial.

    Our last few hours in the American.

    OT: iPad Air vs iPad Pro

    I use the pencil a lot and have found Notability is a killer app for me - you can take notes, annotate anything etc. I find the 12.9 is not unwieldy, its just a beautiful screen. As Fishy said, there is no reason to get a ton of memory as most of the time you can get to a place where you can...

    OT: iPad Air vs iPad Pro

    Yes, I have Fi for my wife and I with unlimited data, so I have a sim in my iPad. (I added back a daughter and son in law as the 4 person plan is $45/per line) It's why I went with the cellular version. I also saved a few hundred dollars by buying an open box from Amazon Warehouse!

    OT: iPad Air vs iPad Pro

    I have a 12.9" iPad with sim card compatibility and I have a Google fi sim card so data is free. I find that the iPad is really my go to companion, but I do like the Surface laptop when I have PC programs or access that I need - like Remote Connection for my third party hosted cloud access, and...

    Rechargable Tool Set

    Ridgid from Home Depot has the best mix of quality and price. Milwalkee is great but a little pricier. Also go with 18v no matter which brand you select. The Ryobi 12v line is cheap but relatively junky.

    Musical Acts At UConn

    They were frequent visitors around campus, I can't for sure say I saw them though, but I have a hazy memory of them? (too long ago and much alcohol and weed - (18 was the drinking age). I think in the mid 70's most of the big acts were playing in New Haven or Hartford; saw most of the concerts...

    CBD oils, pills, edibles etc.

    I found that CBD oil didn't help by itself. I picked up some THC/CBD 1:1 mix after my physical therapist (shoulder pain) told me you need some THC to be effective so when I add that plus the CD oil (salves, not ingested) I do get pain relief. He also told me I wouldn't pass a drug test even...

    Sorry, had to run to work early this am, I'll take some pics when I get home later!

    OT: Deck Materials

    No, it’s just a solid straight edge like wood! It’s a great product - they also sell little hole fillers so your deck has no nail holes. If you want some closeups I can take them tomorrow! We also went for the post top lights!

    OT: Deck Materials

    Just sent you a friend request! During the last 3 months we haven't been to any breweries so we've been hitting wine more, so not as many beers recently! (We had a lot of win leftover from 2 weddings we threw last year. Funny most of the beer is gone, just a few bottles of Arthur left!

    My azek deck looks like that, except white bars on the sides. We do spray the deck every year with a mold remover or diluted clorox mix but still looks great.

    OT: Applying for initial Medicare coverage

    OMG, you're right about the Boneyard being the source for all knowledge! I turn 65 in Sept. and my wife is retiring from teaching. I was told I need to sign up for Medicare 3 months before so I was just on the SSA website and signed up for Part A and (I think) Part B - It's a little confusing...

    OT: Movies you probably never heard of but ought to check out.

    I think one of the most underrated movies is "Almost Famous". Great music, great cast, fun story about rock and roll, Kate Hudson before she was famous, Phillip Seymour Hoffman - "of course I'm home, I'm uncool. ......... Friendship is the booze they feed ya. ........ I met you, you are not cool. "

    Poll: Greatest Husky of All Time

    I wonder how much Ray's recent distancing hurts him on this poll. The way 8893 worded it "the single greatest representative of all the things you think it means to be a Husky?" made me shift my vote.

    Poll: Greatest Husky of All Time

    I'm glad I did, changed my vote. It'd be interesting how the vote would change if you just considered college career. NBA career is a no brainer.

    I've had one for a while. Up until the work from home, my office of 7 people was sharing it. We had 10 people using the bike. I try to use it a couple times a week - 3 is ideal. I just brought mine home so its more convenient for me ( I can and do go into our offices as I'm the only one...
