  1. We actually took an organized tour otherwise there was no way we could have done four places in one day considering the wait time at each place. For $75 we got to try 2-3 different pies at each place and included beer and wine. The white clam wasn't for me but I don't like seafood. Brooklyn and Northern Jersey are being kicked around for a future trip.
  2. Went to New Haven for some pizza on Saturday. Went to Frank Pepe's, Sally's, Zenelli's, and Abate's. Wanted to go to Modern but didn't have time. Pics are: the original coal oven at Pepe's; mozz pie at Sally's; potato and rosemary, tomato pie and mozz slices at Sally's; sausage and pepper and grandma pies at Abate's. We also had the mozz, tomato and clam pie at Pepe's and the marinara and margherita at Zenelli's but didn't get pics there. For the Pepe vs Sally's debate, I definitely preferred Sally's but both were awesome. I thought the best tasting pie of the day though was the sausage and pepper from Abate's.
  3. We use a thermacell when eating outside on our deck. We have issues with bees buzzing around our food. The thermacell works great.
  4. That's interesting he had to raise outlets on his house. Code requires a convenience outlet as well as the outlet the pump plugs into. My convenience outlet is below the pump outlet on the 4x4 post, 6 feet from the pool. There was no requirement for height - just distance from the pool.
  5. We had an above ground pool installed last year. Cost $1,100 to run the electric. I paid someone to do it because we obtained a permit from our building department and it had to be done by a licensed electrician. As far as maintaining, I vacuum once a week and drop a couple chlorine tablets in the skimmer basket once a week and that's it.
  6. Gracie. She's a boxer-lab mix. Sent from my SM-G960U using Tapatalk
  7. Pretty cool video Brian. Never tried that technique. When I was a kid we used to go out after a light rain at night and pick crawlers. You could fill a coffee can in an hour. Haven't done that in probably 30 years.
  8. A soak in a 50/50 mix of distilled vinegar and water will dissolve rust. I have used this to remove rust when restoring cast iron pans.
  9. My 500 does as well. I've never seen it in any other gun's finish. Always wondered what caused it.
  10. Spending the week in North Myrtle Beach.
  11. We did a half day offshore trip on a party boat a few years ago this time of year. All we caught were small sea bass. Was told by the captain that this time of year you need to get out to the gulf stream to catch "real" fish and that takes a full day trip.
  12. I have had no luck with Goodyear tires. They wear horribly. I put a set of Cooper Discoverer's on my previous Ram and was very pleased with the wear on them. When the factory Goodyear's are ready to be replaced on my current Silverado (just about there with 22K miles), I will be replacing them with Cooper's.
  13. They are also talking about a nor'easter for Saturday.
  14. Veal Parm at Dan Tana's in West Hollywood Sent from my SM-G960U using Tapatalk
  15. Lunch in Hollywood Sent from my SM-G960U using Tapatalk
  16. The aftermath of dinner at Mastro's in Beverly Hills. Ribeye with truffle butter, creamed spinach, mashed taters, lobster mac and cheese. Butter cake and key lime pie for desert. Sent from my SM-G960U using Tapatalk
  17. Heading to Los Angeles for a week in February. North Myrtle Beach for Easter week and then a week on the Cape in July.
  18. I have a newer Lodge and two very old skillets that were my great-great grandmothers (a Griswold and a Wagner). The old pans are definitely a better quality but aren't easy to come by. That being said, I have no complaints with the Lodge. You can get a 10" Lodge for under 30 bucks.
  19. 4 doe and a spike so far. Got in a little late as we get to our property and I realize my rifle is still in my truck at my parents house. 45 minutes round trip and ended up having to walk in at first light. Sent from my SM-G960U using Tapatalk
  20. We do not bow hunt but have been out to our property a few times to prep ground blinds and do a little scouting. We have seen very little sign and few deer. Areas that consistently year to year have scrapes and rubs there is nothing. Established runs are not there. We are in the southern portion of 4C in Rensselaer County.
  21. I was working in the office and one of my coworkers said that a plane flew into the WTC. We figured it had to be a small plane or possibly a helicopter. When we heard a second plane hit we knew it had to be terrorism. Went to a conference room and turned on the news. Watched the towers fall on TV. It was pretty surreal. Several of my coworkers were on the train down to NYC for a meeting with the Port Authority at the time the planes hit. Thankfully for them, it was an afternoon meeting.
  22. He's young and in good shape. Literally a sink or swim situation. The adrenaline had to be pumping like crazy. He was REAL lucky his car drifted off to the side of the flood waters and got caught up.
