My favorite front page newspaper story back then was hookers raise prices truckers mad. At least the basque lamb restaurant near there is good.
    Ha! Looks like not much changes around these parts. I was transplanted here as a kid from the midwest myself. Never got used to it here. Forced me to take up introverted hobbies like boxing and car building to keep out of trouble. Story continues I guess, here I am reading about knives I can't afford yet. Another interest my friends don't understand. lol

    Thanks for the welcome folks! You guys are awesome!
    Am I the only one who searched for The Edge from U2 and ended up here?

    Well you're in good company here. Welcome Gary!

    BTW, what are the hookers charging these days?

    I'm north of the university. Just north of the hood, but still close enough to be lulled to sleep by the soothing sound of the police helicopter.

    Wow! Thats awesome! Wish I could do the same. Browsed the Boardsmith thread the other day and the one about his knife blocks. Pure amazing! I bet he gets all the ladies.

    Yes, the boardsmith boards are amazing. I think after much research he has the best quality. Don't want to spend a ton of money on high end Japanese knives a wreck them on bad boards that aren't end grain or have bad or too much glue. As far as the ladies I think he is happily married.
