re: What are some basic meals you cook regularly? - TU Rob on 1/17/17 at 4:47 pm
I find we end up cooking more of what the kids will enjoy than getting cute with our cooking these days. Boxed pastas are great. Anything from Mac n cheese, Hamburger Helper Stroganoff, and some of those Lipton chicken flavored noodles. Makes a great side for just about anything. Rice is ano...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (0)
re: Need advice: 1911 SA v SP2022 DA/SA v S&W Shield - TU Rob on 1/17/17 at 4:35 pm
I prefer striker fired. I had a Ruger 9mm, and that long first trigger pull turned me off to the DA/SA guns. Follow up was great as it was a short pull and much easier to shoot that way. I want every trigger pull to feel the same, especially on a carry/home defense gun. Shoot it enough until it ...

re: Is three screens too much/overkill at a workstation? - TU Rob on 1/17/17 at 11:12 am
I've done three before when I had a laptop with a docking station and a dual monitor set up. I usually just docked it and closed the lid, but every now and then I would need the space. When working with excel, our GL program, and our reporting software at the same time, it came in handy. Also whe...

Mine does the same thing. When I get in my car at home most mornings it gives me a traffic alert along my usual route. Thursday mornings it gives me traffic to where I go that morning. Wednesday afternoon it gives me traffic to church. Other afternoons it gives me traffic home. ...
