I bought one of these back after Christmas, and it worked fine for months. Even on the shitty U-Verse wireless I had at the time. Then it would lose the signal some, and I would have to unplug it and plug it back in and it would work fine for a few more weeks.
I cut cable and got Charter inte...

If it is just a weekend vehicle, what is your daily driver? That might help. I'd love an old pickup as a weekend beater. But I drive a Jeep daily. Would be nice to be able to go to the home depot and not take the wife's van and have her go crazy if something scratches the interior. Something li...

I live in Vestavia but work in the heart of downtown. The commute isn't bad. Of course I'm married with two kids so I'm not exactly walking or biking to bars in Southside either. About the only place I can think of where you can live and walk to those places is the Lakeview/Southside area. There...

I wear my Rx sunglasses at the outdoor range I go to, and my muffs fit over them fine. Indoors I double up and use some of the "nicer" earplugs. The ones that sort of have a T-shape to them. Skinny to go in the ear and flare out at the end into your ear cavity....

They're still pretty big here in Birmingham but I sort of agree with the comments on the religious aspect to the show. And I'm saying that as a Christian who believes in spreading the gospel. But on a variety morning talk show on the radio that started out as comedy it doesn't seem right. They even ...
