    Question/Advice Re: Snow Blowers

    I'm in Canada and use a Stihl backpack blower, works very well, especially if you get on it quick. Food for thought. I like it because it's smaller for storage purposes. Also a 2 stroke, but in my experience Stihl has been very easy to maintain. Good luck!

    Fedora/hat ID help

    I've seen a couple fedoras around that I like (or what I thought were fedoras) but can't seem to find one in a store. Its a smaller looking fedora, but the back of the brim is curled and front brim is flat. Does anyone know what these are called? Is it just a different variation of a fedora...

    Show Us Your BICYCLE(S)!!!!

    My new R2! I liked the looks of the S2 better, more aero, but preferred how this felt on the test ride.

    Café Acquisition Thread

    Just ordered one of these, I was able to get a really good price online. It comes with a 1.5 year warranty, but hoping it will stand the test of time. I like that you can grind straight into a filter.

    My new Technivorm

    Interesting, I will give that a shot thank you. I use the brown, recycled looking paper filters. Not sure if there is a difference. I'll also try the clean glass for the water, thanks for the tip!

    My new Technivorm

    Have close to a month on it now, works great. Brews a pot very quickly which I like. Rhody, I find putting hot water in the pot while I grind the beans etc helps. I agree though, could always have hotter.

    Dinnerware recommendations

    Dave, that Noritake is nice, thanks for posting. When I compare prices (I'm in Canada) the LeCreuset is actually not that much more ($50/4 settings). I just don't know if it's any better.

    Dinnerware recommendations

    Interesting I will check out corelle, thank you. Yes, everyday use. Dishwasher and microwave. We have nice china from our wedding (that actually does get used on special occasions). If I could find a nice white/neutral set that will last I would be willing to pay more.

    Dinnerware recommendations

    Hi gang, any thoughts on a new dinnerware set? Ideally I would like something durable that will last. I was looking at something pricey like Lecreuset but not sure it is worth the cost or if it is more of a fashion statement for the kitchen. Alternatively it's a buy and replace every couple of...

    My first Filson

    Totally agree. I really like their travel kit / bathroom bag. Simple and looks like it would last forever.

    My new Technivorm

    I was able to find a great deal on a basically new (lightly used) Technivorm. I must say this thing makes great coffee compared to my Cuisinart drip coffeemaker. Even my wife admitted that it was better than expected. Are there many others here using one of these as their daily coffeemaker...
