    iTune encrypted backup

    Long story short, I busted my iPhone. The Apple store near my office had a same day appointment. Since my MacBook was at home (45 miles away) I loaded iTune on my work computer to backup my iPhone before taking it in. I don't like or use iCloud. iTunes shows the backup. During the process, I...

    Zero Turn Mowers

    Seeking the experience or advice of the good folks of CP. I bought my first zero turn mower in '16. Well, experience is what you get when you don't get what you want. It was a lemon, but resolved with the manufacturer and distributor, so they did stand behind it. I don't want to mention the...

    Dunhill Signed Range Churchill 2014

    I picked up a Dunhill Signed Range Churchill at a local brick & mortar store. The price was $15.60. I was interested in this cigar because I have recently smoked the Davidoff Nicaragua Diadema and it is one of my current favorites. Now, these cigars are expensive (to me) and are not an everyday...

    Bourbon Run to KY

    Some years back I would be in the Lexington area for personal reasons in the fall and stop at a local shop to stock up on bourbon. With the current run on bourbons and the lack of stock in the Atlanta area, I was checking to see if its worth a drive to Ky. I know most distiller start to bottle...

    Scotland votes No. Surprised ?

    I have to say I am a bit surprised by the no vote. But I was also mistaken when I though Quebec would vote to leave Canada.

A lot has changes since Sept. 7, 2004, but the integrity and community I found then has not. So my sincere thanks to you for maintaining this sight.  ...

    Dallas / Fort Worth

    So after contracting for two years, the company I have been contracting with made me an offer. While the offer is ok, there are issue not worth detailing. Best to say that I do not see this offer as a long term based on corporate volatility.   I interviewed with and received an offer with a...

    Converting Compact Disks to audio files

    Ok. I have a small stereo that I have decided  to upgrade (NAD receiver, PSB speakers, Sony CD player). Its about 18 years old. I have about 400 CDs, and have decided that the smart thing to do (arguably) is to convert the CD's to audio files so I have a ready test bed of music that I enjoy to...

    Skeet shooting advice

    A local gunshop is sponsoring a charity skeet tournament Mar. 21. Some guys and I at my local B&M are thinking of going. My problem is that I have not shot skeet in about 30 years. I believe it will be fun, and may develop into a nice way to get some fresh air on a Saturday. Problem is I need to...

    Trick or Treat Bag

    I did the JR Trick or Treat a few years ago. One year was a pretty fair bag, the next not so much. Then skipped a couple of years. For some reason, it crossed my mind again, so I gave it a shot. . They have two packages, one for $29 and one for $49. I opted for the $49 and received today. And I...

    Tatuaje Motorcycle drawing

    I know the various view of Pete's limited editions cigars, but lets face it, the man can market his product and the number of posts about it illustrates his success. He could have just cancelled the tickets, the publicity it was designed to generate being accomplished. While I know some will say...

    Atlanta B&M Closing

    I frequent a small B&M near my office at lunch. Nice place to have a mid-day smoke. Stopped by today and learned he is closing on Friday, July 31. Business has been slow, and his landlord is doing nothing to work with him, so he is shutting his shop down. He is offering buy 3 get one free...
