    Oh Boy!

    Singed: Oriental Silk is one of my secret go-to blends. Unassuming…yet so satisfying with that delightful dusting of Turkish. Have you ever tried Honor Blend (named after the Capt’s wife I think). It’s a little like concentrated O Silk pressed into a brick. Delicious! I think you’d like it.

    I was interested so I looked it up. I’d always heard the ultra combustible white tip was phosphorus. White Phosphorus = Willy Peter…the military slang designation for the super incendiary grenades, mortar shells, etc. Google says : “The tip of a matchstick contains a mixture of phosphorus...

    They stock the “Strike on the Box” versions. The “Strike Anywhere” version is more rare. Some sources say they’re no longer made.

    Diamond Green Tip (wood is Aspen, claimed to be from renewable sources…hence “green”) are indeed available out there typically at farm and hardware stores. Ace Hardware, WILCO, etc. But it looks like Walmart might have them. Yes, the large 300 count box has the beefier match that burns...

    “Strike anywhere matches are restricted in Canada because of their volatility.“ Yeah, we certainly wouldn’t want matches that would catch on fire or whatever.

    Definitely hard shell.

    I like those. Very specific application and it fills it well. This Ruger 10/22 Stainless is like the one that leans against the wall beside my bed. I’ve owned quite a few Rugers over the years. All have been solid performers.

    I know I belong to a bygone world because…

    Show us your crabs!

    Surprised someone hasn’t posted one of these…the Alaska King Crab. Point to point span can be as much as 6 feet. There are a number of sub species depending on where along the Aleutian chain you are. But whatever the exact species…they’re BIG!

    I know I belong to a bygone world because…

    Camera operators at the World Series (or it might have been a pennant game) following a hugely important play scanned the fans just up behind third base and focused on a dozen babes in a couple of rows. They looked like quadruplets times three - each one had their nose stuck in their mobile...
