    Vintage Fishing Rod - Removing Rust From Guides

    I have a 6'6" Wright & McGill "Danco" (96.5) fishing rod that I have had since my uncle bought it for me ~54 years ago. Through the process of time, the guide loops, which are just steel, have gotten a bit rusty. They are not too gross, but no longer smooth either. The finish on the rod has also...

    Swirls, Dabs or Strokes

    Recently, I have been watching MASH, the TV show from the 1970s set in the 1950s. In the show, you frequently see Hawkeye, Trapper, Frank and Henry shaving, or more frequently brushing on shave soap. These are guys (the actors, not the characters) who would have actually been shaving for some...

    Kitchen Knife Sharpening

    I keep the knives I use (2 10" Chef knives) sharp just using the steel. But my wife has another set of knives that she likes and does not maintain very faithfully.

When we remodeled the kitchen 20 years ago, I wanted to go with gas, but lost the battle based on esthetics. I do most of the cooking, but my wife liked the look of the glass cook top...

    Peated Bourbon - Any Takers?

    I went on a tour of the Buffalo Trace distillery. One of the interesting experiments I saw aging in the warehouse was a few barrels labeled "Peated Bourbon". It is still in the experimental state and it may or may not ever make it to market. I thought it sounded interesting. Do do you think it...
