re: Anyone with a F-150? - mworld938
My company truck is a 2014 Ford XLT super cab with the 5.0 V8. 115k miles on it and only one set of tires/battery and scheduled maintenance. No problems and it looks and drives like new (especially after the 100k service). Average MPG is 21 with mostly highway driving. I like it more than the ne...

re: Live Blues CD/album/recording - mworld938
I was just listening to a live version of "The Green Manalishi". Great blues rock song by Fleetwood Mac. They didn't suck before they got the girls. Judas Priest does a great cover of the same song. (I know this isn't classic blues). Junior Kimbrough for classic blues in addition to those prev...

re: What is the best brand of canned black beans? - mworld938
I get the Goya ones (actually listed as black bean soup). It is more like regular canned beans. I soften some finely diced onions, garlic, and bacon. Pour in beans, season with cumin, bay leaf, salt & pepper and some hot sauce. A diced tomato is alright to add too....

re: Do I cut the bottoms off of Brussels sprouts? - mworld938
I do then halve them. I toss them with 3 slices of dice uncooked bacon. Salt & Pepper. After I take them out of the oven, I will toss them in a Thai chili glaze or drizzle with balsamic dressing, olive oil and sprinkle with grated Parmesan & Romano....

re: "Fudging" salary when telling someone - mworld938

re: Top things to do in London besides the landmarks - mworld938
Make a reservation for the Sky Garden at the top of the walkie talkie building. Great cocktails and the best view in the city. They control the crowd size so it comfortable. You won't regret it. I enjoyed the Saturday markets. Catch a theatre show and a soccer game if you have a chance. I hate...

re: Port Angeles, WA - mworld938
My per diem is $75 but the boss man don't care if I go over. I had a seared local fish with some good Washington white wine. Had some good sausage and beers at some brewpub in downtown PA. ...

re: Port Angeles, WA - mworld938
I had a work trip there and had to stay in Sequim which is next door. Ate at Blondie's and had a great meal. Sat at the bar with a nice cougar. Good mixed drinks, local beers and wines. Victoria, BC is incredible if you have time to take the ferry. [link=(http://www.blondiesplate.com)]Blondi...

re: Best noise canceling headphones - mworld938
I love my Bose 35s. They will hurt your wallet but worth every penny for me as I fly a lot for work. If you know someone in the military, they are cheaper and tax free....

re: Wow, didn't know the 9th circuit has an 80% reversal rate at the Supreme Court - mworld938
When I was involved in counter narcotic operations, all our cases were held in the 11th (Tampa). They were very friendly to Federales. This included seizures made right off Baha. It was far above my pay grade on how those cases were always held in the 11th without geographic considerations of the...

My daughter had a full Academic based scholarship to FSU. Completed her freshman year then transferred back to LSU. Tops can be renistated during your sophomore year only except for military service which lengthens it longer. Of course, Tops is on life support now....

re: What is so good about Covington, Louisiana - mworld938
Because gas was cheaper than private school. Covington High is kinda meh, but many parts of Covington are zoned for Mandeville schools. Now that my kids are grown, I have thought of moving to New Orleans, but my house & land is too nice to trade for a crowded Uptown spot. There is too much tr...

re: Is Newport News, VA a nice place? - mworld938
No. I went to high school there when my dad was stationed at a nearby Army base. The numbered streets are Bad Newz. Nearby York County and Williamsburg are very nice places to live and within 15 miles. I enjoyed my summers working at Busch Gardens....
