Re: 14 Year Old Governor

One of my grandpa's smoked all the normal brands for his era, like Velvet, Prince Albert (the butt end of several jokes), and Half and Half (which he claimed was half sawdust and half road apples, if you know what road apples are, hi hi) At one time, I had glass jars filled with nearly every brand o...

Re: 14 Year Old Governor

I think the way the taxes on tobacco work now is why they cannot sell outside of to license distribution. I had a cousin who worked for Grand Candy and Tobacco Company. His only job was placing the tax decals on the cartons of cigarettes, and keeping records of same, for every carton they sent out t...

Re: Paint Remover

I had two real Meerschaum pipes, but rarely used them. Both were facial designs and were given to me as gifts. I also had a couple of hand-made large pipes, about the size of the Meeerschaum pipes, also rarely used, but loved them. The corncob pipes held up well for me, only had a couple of the chea...

Re: Rock And Roll

We've never had luck with non-stick cookware of any kind, which is why we fell back to using cast iron. If I could have afforded it, I would have bought all Magnalite Cookware. It's a cast aluminum alloy of some kind, much lighter than cast iron, but has about the same cooking properties. I assume i...

Re: Paint Remover

Although I lived in St. Louis my whole life. I actually paid to go on bus tours of St. Louis to see things I may have missed, or couldn't visit unless you were with a tour, this was in later years. When I was younger, I was off work on Tuesdays. Back then, you could go visit a company or place of in...

Re: 14 Year Old Governor

Shortly after I moved down here I obtained about two dozen already cured tobacco leaves of four different varieties that were for a pleasant American Blend of tobacco. Making cigarette tobacco is tedious to do by hand. It has to be blocked and cut, not easy without the right equipment. Even so, I tr...

Re: 14 Year Old Governor

Believe me Yogi, I know exactly what you mean. I was raised around heavy drinkers of alcohol, and I'm sure a few of them were alcoholics too. This may be one of the reasons I don't drink? Another is I never liked the taste of alcoholic beverages. This doesn't mean I never drank. Heck, I probably dra...

Speaking of Claustrophobia, have you taken a ride to the top of the Gateway Arch yet?

That's where I proposed to Debi 17 years ago!

Re: Rock And Roll

Oxalic Acid, sold at many hardware stores as Wood Bleach, will literally eat away any burnt on stuff on a ceramic cooktop without hurting the top. It's the main ingredient in the original Bar Keepers Friend. It's still in the current Bar Keepers Friend but at a greatly reduced amount to keep the cos...

Re: Paint Remover

You got that right! Just looking at the one small part I drew, and the number of hours that went into the engineering and design, selecting which designs, and then having several of us draw the blueprints for those designs. Then when they finally chose which of the designs they wanted to carry to th...

Re: Rock And Roll

Ahem? Most of my cookware is Cast Iron. When I got our first ceramic cooktop, I took all of my cast iron to a machine shop and had them true the bottoms to perfectly flat using a head grinder. They have sat flat and worked perfectly ever since. As far as heat up and cool down times. These new pulsin...

Re: 14 Year Old Governor

I smoked a pipe for several years, had a nice collection too, some of which brought good money at an auction, which is unusual. Where I worked I smoked corncob pipes during the day, had a rack of five of them, one for each day of the week so they could dry out before I used them again the next time....

Re: 14 Year Old Governor

Actually, it doesn't turn your lungs brown, or black, or anything as far as that goes. I've talked to more than one surgeon who said they cannot tell the lungs of a heavy smoker from someone who never smoked. One doc told me that cigarettes do not put out any carbon, either by smoking or as second h...

Re: Rock And Roll

Rather than fire up the griddle, I often just tossed a flat steel sheet on the char-broiler to cook eggs or pancakes. Not bacon though. Had to use the griddle so the grease had somewhere to go. Honestly though, I'm one of those who prefer electric over gas for cooking, mainly because there is no gue...

Re: Dancing?

I only grew potatoes one time since they are so cheap in the store. I did mine using stackable rings which made growing and harvesting super easy. Like you though, we didn't get as many potatoes as I though we would. I don't golf, but I found these long black plastic tubes used in golf bags and used...

Re: Paint Remover

I don't think it would have been a fire hazard, after all, the duct vent was over 50 feet away from the furnace. I do know she tried using a magnetic cover that directed the air from the vent, but that cut off air to other folks, and it vibrated down and would fall off from time to time. The buildin...

Re: Paint Remover

Super glue is strong stuff, especially the professional grades like JET or Hot Stuff! In an office over the shopping center, one of the gals who worked there glued several malt sized soda straws to a ductwork vent so it would help direct some of the cool air down toward her desk. She kept adding str...

Re: Dancing?

I used to plant my tomato plants along a fence row by using a bulb planter to make the hole to set the plants in. They always did great! But here, the frau always had me till the row, and I don't think we ever had what I would call a good crop of tomatoes, or peppers, or anything else for that matte...

Re: Rock And Roll

Although I had 16 burner gas griddles and char-broilers, I still preferred electric for the fryers and cooktops or stoves. Had an awesome electric char-broiler in my home, which you cannot find anymore. I really miss it too! We do not have gas where I live, so everything is electric. Our electric st...
