Re: socks - cotton, silk, wool or bamboo

I just grab a bag o' socks from big box retailer store, virgin white cotton socks feel like absolute luxury when you slip them on... so good. No need for expensive, exotics. Truth! I bring enough for 3 pairs per day. The devilish thing about "playa foot" is that it happens before you have any sympt...

I'm so old I remember when I'd fly across the Atlantic, entering by climbing up stairs from the ground, sit in seats facing other passengers, with a table between us for reading or playing cards, in a plane that had four propellers. I'd spend hours in the cockpit. And real food. And a smoking secti...

Re: boil the microwave rice pouch

I've done TastyBites for a decade out there. Bombay Potatoes and Madrass Lentils. Each have lots of carbs and even carnivores go gaga over them.

BUT, their rice pacs taste horrible. Buy one and see for yourself.

I noticed that was a 48 star US flag in the backdrop of some scenes. Using a 1959 vintage background makes me somewhat doubt the veracity of the message. Maybe the GIF of the waving 48 state flag is from current RNC files and next on Trumps list after the Puerto Rico sale might be Hawaii to the Jap...

Amazon prime has 150,000,000 USA customers that pay $119 every year.

Whatever the cost of unionizing might be, raising that Prime fee by $1/$2/$3 should cover it.

Prime people are addicted to Prime and will pay up without a wimper.
