re: Need a recommendation for a beard trimmer... - gumbo2176
Almost any trimmer like Oster or Wahl will do the trick, but it's best to get the trimmer with the different size cutting head adaptors to trim it to the length you like....

[quote]I'm all for it. Nobody needs more that 10-15 trout per day. fricking ridiculous.[/quote] Agree. I can remember when there was no limit on trout and guys would come in with Igloo ice chests filled to the top. A friend of mine's dad had a camp and they'd go out for a few days at a time...

re: Bank Fishing - gumbo2176
What Captain Ray said. I fish the Mississippi River around the N.O. area and as far down as Lower St. Bernard Parish. Lately I've found that earthworms work best for bait. I've also take out fresh shrimp market bait, blood baits like beef melt, beef liver, chicken gizzards and hearts and ...

re: Trucker charged with 7 counts of negligent homicide in crash that killed motorcyclists - gumbo2176
[quote]More on the POS driver LINK[/quote] I see today where the head of the Mass. Registry of Motor Vehicles has resigned over this. Their office had been notified about this guys DUI arrest in New Hampshire and because of that, he should have had his commercial license suspended. Seems ...

[quote]It's Germany. They deserve to be reminded of what happens when Daddy has to cross the Atlantic[/quote] Well, Germany is not the only country bombed by the Allies during WWII. I doubt there is any country beside possibly Switzerland that wasn't targeted by U.S., British and Canadian bombe...

[quote]Air conditioning has turned us into a bunch of wimps.[/quote] I agree. I was born in 52 and I grew up with no a/c and only had a big Reed window fan that could either blow air into the house or blow air out the house. We always had it blowing out so it would draw air into windows open ...

re: German WW2 bomb leaves giant crater in field - gumbo2176
How'd you like to be driving a tractor over that when it went off? So much unexploded ordinance all over Europe it's not funny, and to think this happens every so often has to be a bit scary for the residents....

[quote]What's the negligent homicide part?[/quote] Not much has been reported on how the accident took place, but my guess is he crossed the center line on a 2 lane blacktop and took out the bikers. But like I said, just a guess. However, I can't imagine all those bikers being in the wron...

re: How often do you guys get your AC unit cleaned and serviced? - gumbo2176
I do my own cleaning no less than once a year for the outside condensing unit. Those aluminum fins can get clogged up with dirt, lawn clippings, pet hair etc. so cleaning that helps the unit perform better. I make sure to change out my interior air filter at least once a month and that goes a l...

re: Bonus Room - gumbo2176
Definitely insulate well. A single 220 unit in the 18K BTU range should cool that space off nicely. I have a 24K BTU unit in my ground floor man cave that is 850 sq. ft. and it cools it off set at 72 when I'm using it in the summer months. For heat, I have a stand alone gas heater that look...

re: Best Central A/C unit - gumbo2176
When I bought my present house in 92 it had only a couple window units. I put in a 4 ton Heil unit and it worked fine, and was still working when I replaced it with a Trane unit this spring. I didn't want to chance it going out in the summer months and be waiting days or weeks to have it re...

re: Finished or unfinished cabinets? - gumbo2176
How much is your time worth? Finishing cabinets, though not hard, is a bit time consuming. If painting, you'll need a primer coat, sand that down, then probably 2 top coats to make them look nice and uniform in color. If staining and clear coating, it's a bit more work. I would not stain...

re: First war movie you watched? - gumbo2176
Grew up in the 50's, so war movies were all over the TV and big screen. I really can't say which one was the very first to be honest because I got a pretty steady diet of them. Between war movies and westerns, that was what dominated theaters and TV in the 50's....
