You lost me at the mention of curry there. I have only had one experience with Indian food and it was not a good one. It kept on giving for a whole day. So I shy away from Indian food and anything with curry on it. I guess it is guilt by association. I know it is not rational, but humans are not always rational creatures.

In my defense I did say "maybe" but a charcoal grilled white hot with mustard is a wonderful thing. We call the red ones Texas hots and the white ones porkers.


Rochester, New York is also the home of Nick Tahoe's. Nick Tahoe's is the home of the original Garbage Plate special. It goes back to the 1950's when the Rochester Institute of Technology was still located in downtown Rochester, NY. Nick's was a few blocks away and open 24 x 7. Students would drop in all night and order whatever was left over. Get it with a hamburger patty or a sliced open hot dog, macaroni salad, home fries, coleslaw, maybe mac and cheese all smothered in a meat based hot sauce.

Nice work. A few years ago I was at an airshow and there was a two seater P40 that you could get a ride in. A one hour ride could be had for $1,800. I did some quick calculations a found that I could fly to my son's house have the pilot do a few passes and then fly home. It would have made me the cool grandpa. It was so tempting.

Actually two but I "Liked" it anyway. :lol: I really like the photos I see here from that lens, but my 28-105 is so good that I cannot justify the 24-70 lens.

K3 Mk3 has Failed

Even back in the days of film cameras that was not a unusually long turnaround time for a repair. My Mamiya/Sekor 500 DTL meter failed. It was gone for months and ll that had to be done was a wire resoldered to it's connection. The second time it failed I fixed it myself. The third time I got a Pentax Spotmatic II.


I am glad your camera is back. I hope it gives you many years of faultless operation from here on out.

Easy as ever. Being an old fart I have heard so many horror stories about when we are going to run out of this or that I ignore all of them as the so called experts turned out not to be so expert after all. In the US the greatest consumer of petroleum is the plastics industry. You never hear anyone predicting the end of the Plastics Age. :eek:

I have survived a lot including the Ice Age of the 1990's. Something that climate "experts" were predicting in the 1970's. If the experts predicted it it must have happened and since I am still kicking I must have survived it.


"Experts" at anything rarely have their predictions come true yet we flock to them like the Oracles of Delphi.

On of the things we learned in high school in the 1960's was how to diagram a sentence. I think a proper punishment would be for you to diagram that sentence and report back to us.


How many people know what diagramming a sentence is?

Just north of I94 at the last exit on the east side of the Missouri River there is the ruins of a Mandan village. There is also a small park there where you can sit on a bench on the bluff that overlooks the Missouri River. That little park looking west is one of my favorite spots in the whole country. For some reason I find peace there.

So are all these newer cars and trucks using the fake gasoline that contains alcohol guilty of underage drinking? And what about the people who buy it for them?


When I was a young whippersnapper it was legal to drink at 18. For me that was in 1969. Of course our generation could handle booze a lot better than the ones that followed. ;)

I agree with you. Art Deco is usually anything but art. Built between 1931 and 1934. The workers were only paid 30 cents and hour and after a string of strikes the building site was administered under martial law. It sure looks like something built by a totalitarian regime.

They need to bring back the bison lantifrons. 4,000 (1,800 kg) pounds of bad attitude with a set of horns that would make a Texas longhorn slink home in shame. If you are ever in Bismarck, ND visit the ND Heritage Museum. It is well worth your time. Neat displays like this bison lantifrons making it a bad day for a saber tooth tiger. In the background you see a guy standing there looking at a display. The large skull is from a Bison Lantifrons. The much smaller skull to his right is the modern bison.

The "experts" tell us that at one time there may have been as many as 90,000,000 bison roaming all over North America. Didn't they fart too? It appears that exterminating them was good for the environment. So I guess them buffalo hunters were early environmentalists. We owe them a debt of gratitude for helping put off climate change.

My brother in law had an old 4WD HD Ford pickup that he used for plowing snow. It had a 9 foot long bed and a gross weight rating of 9600 pounds of so. It even has 17" slit rim wheels on it. On the front an 8" Western Hydroturn plow. It was a beast and I swear you could climb walls with it. Under the hood was that glorious 300ci in line six engine.

That 300ci in line 6 cylinder that Ford made was a great engine. The Taxi that Ford made back then had that engine too. It was a real beast. Almost impossible to kill.

Racer, so sorry to hear that. There are simply no words to convey but sending your family a hug. I know what it is like to bury a son. He too served in the 82nd Airborne. Sometimes life just sucks and all you can do is plow through it.

We need more posts from our Japanese members. The main reason that this thread continues is that Godzilla finds it very entertaining and it keeps him in a good mood. If he gets grumpy he destroys Tokyo. If our Japanese members tell us that it is okay to abandon Tokyo to it's then Is suppose that we can probably shut this thread down.


Ancillary (big time word here) reason is to pay homage to BACON!!!!!
