    Spare tire lifespan

    I bought my current pick-up truck back in 2003. It came with a spare tire mounted underneath the truck bed. I only ever had to use it twice, years and years ago, and only for brief in-town drives to the tire store to get a flat fixed. I'm wondering, though, whether or not it needs to be...

    Dear Subaru ...

    One headlight and one tail light out in my 2013 Outback. I spent $170 at the mechanic's shop to get the car half-disassembled so the bulbs could be replaced. Took all morning. Last time I burned out a headlight in my 2003 Toyota Tundra, I popped the hood and had the bulb changed in 3...

    Two-pound brisket ... oven cooking ideas??

    I recently came into possession of a brisket, aprox. 2lbs, and am looking for good ideas for cooking it. This will be in the oven, not BBQ/smoker (which a I think a lot of guys do.) Anyhow, it's not a cut of meat I have familiarity with (apart from a general knowledge that "low and slow" is...

    Heavyweight boxing

    I recently listened to the Joe Rogan podcast from last fall, where he interviewed Tyson Fury. Apart from the Pacquiao--Mayweather fight a few years ago (and a few years too late), I haven't cared about boxing for a long time. But after listening to this podcast, I may be interested again.
