Re: 9&10 New Graphics Package

The new graphics? Meh. They seem to be an attempt at a Readers Digest Large Print Edition for TV on some of their bumpers. The use of these little pop-up translucent weather maps of the state over a seemingly reflective black glass-top stand by the wx team are hilarious, especially when they are dis...

Re: Name The Beer

Wouldn't have gotten it in a million years without the hint. Didn't even know the brewer existed. So, it looks to be Pappy's Porter. Indeed, it was ... https://i.ibb.co/j4SqDfD/pp2.jpg Porters are not really in my wheelhouse, but I wish I could buy more of this. Probably the best porter I've had. T...

Not sure, but I'm guessing whatever it is will be a bit too hop forward for my palate.
Actually, it's the label that's hoppy, not the beer. This one is very much malt-forward...

Though, as a hint, it is brewed by the same company renowned for its hop-forward offering, "Heady Topper"...

Re: Walmart Violating Rights of Shoppers

Nicely put, Larry Bud. Some people often confuse rights with privileges. They'll shop at places they outwardly state they disdain, while enjoying pluses like convenience of business hours, location, and perceived lower pricing. These false witnesses have complete ability to choose to shop elsewhere,...

Re: Pat Travers

Always liked PTB's version of "Born Under a Bad Sign" from "Crash and Burn".

Pats Travers & Thrall both had great guitar licks on that album!

In a world where it seems like most of the diabetes efforts, new products & news/advertising is aimed towards Type 2 diabetes, those affected by Type 1 (aka juvenile or insulin-dependent) diabetes have reason to be very optimistic: The dream of a widely-available ' a utomatic i nsulin d elivery s ys...

Re: Walmart Violating Rights of Shoppers

Customs & rights vary from country-country, and while a loss-prevention scan on the way out isn't offensive to me, I suppose it could be to others. I mean, big-box stores and clubs could design their outbound post-checkout areas so that there were fewer possibilities to purchase or lift something el...
