re: What's the carmax buying experience like? - TU Rob
I've bought from them 3 different times. The actual selection, test driving, and all of that is fine. They take their time with you since they are not on commission. At least the two different people I've dealt with there, years apart, both told me. It is really easy to sell them a car. I've ta...

re: What are you asking for for Christmas? - TU Rob
I asked my dad for a nice brushless cordless drill/driver combo and the free tool that Home Depot had going a few weeks ago. The free tool will be a router. Other than that, a good couple of weeks off with my family and maybe some dress shirts. ...

re: Best outdoor TV antenna for a camp that sits on the Gulf? - TU Rob
I have a 4 door RCA one that picks up a bunch of stuff. It's an outdoor one I have mounted in the attic. Is this going to be mounted inside? How often is the camp used? Could you wrap a garbage bag around it when leaving to protect it? Most of them are aluminum so rust shouldn't be too much of an is...

re: 25 Questions to be answered: - TU Rob
1 - At what age did you first start cooking and what was the first food item you cooked? I was probably around 9 or 10. My parents moved to south Alabama, and the house they bought had a commercial kitchen set up. A Wolf side by side oven/range. There was a wider gas oven with 6 gas burners a...

re: Von Miller gives every player in AFC West custom bottle of wine, Thank You note - TU Rob
[quote]Now way he sent out $1000 to everyone. My guess is $100 tops. [/quote] A couple of quick searches and I found they max out around $250 per bottle from that vineyard. Maybe there's something higher but I couldn't find it and quit looking. They start around $100 per bottle as best I can te...

re: How Does Chick Fil A Get Away With It - TU Rob
If anyone around the Birmingham area has heard of Restoration Academy, I saw a short video the other day where CFA had them come to corporate HQ in Atlanta. These are predominantly low income black students who have been given a chance at a great private education in Fairfield. It is a Christian s...

re: North Alabama to Division I - TU Rob
A-Sun is a revolving door. Troy had a few years in there after moving up before joining the Fun Belt. I think FAU was in there as well. Samford and Ga State were in there at some point recently too....

[quote]The one holer will get the job done but it can be a pain in the ass. I have the two hole one with the groove for the clamp and it makes the job much easier. [/quote] Thanks. I'm mostly building little projects and at the end of the day it is only $20 more. I also have a ton of different ...

re: Neatest thing you have built? - TU Rob
Thinking about getting a Kreg. Are there any discernible advantages to getting one that costs more than $20 besides ease of use? I see one that has one hole for $19 on Amazon, and one with 2 for $40. Most of the stuff I would use it for I would only need one screw so having two seems like a waste...

re: How many alcoholic beverages do you consume per week? - TU Rob
A case of beer can either last me 3-4 days or 2-3 weeks depending on the season. I'll usually drink 1-2 mixed drinks at the start of a football game then switch off to beer. I may have 2, or I may have 6. More than likely it is just 2 but sometimes I end up watching the late games and have a beer...

re: How much did you pay for your first apartment? - TU Rob
2001 I think I was paying $425 for one bedroom in a 2 BR apt. It was some company that built college apartments and rented them by the bedroom. My wife was in a 4 BR unit but only 3 of them were rented, so the other stayed locked up by management. The next year we moved in together in a 2 BR dupl...

[quote]I went twice to a day of Super 6 games. Was surprisingly a good time even though it was ~8 hours of high school football[/quote] We didn't stay all day. It was a very cold Saturday morning, and my dad's old 1A or 2A high school was playing in it. Several friends of his had come to Birmin...

re: Hoover High School won another Alabama 7A state title - TU Rob
[quote]The games alternate sites between Bryant Denny and Jordan Hare each year. The classifications also rotate when they will play, but 1A-7A are all played on the same field within a few days [/quote] It messed with the schedule when they added the 7A division. It used to be the Super 6 and t...
