My great grandfather gave me a fraternity sword from the Knights of Pythias, a fraternity formed during the Reconstruction Era.  It doesn't have the sheath or the chain on the pommel, but it's still in good shape.

I have a 1962 Studebaker Lark Cruiser Sedan. My latest purchase is a 1957 Magnovx portable record player, the thing weighs about 50 pounds, but great sound. I put a Patti Page album on and it was heaven.

I just found a store with a "Man Section" Shaving bowls, razors, vintage signs, decanters, canes, and all sorts of stuff. My fiance' tells me that we have no more room for stuff...:(

"Why is masculinity so demonized? Also, why does having emotions have to be attributed to femininity? Anyways, sounds like she is accusing the world of pushing us into a certain role while she does the exact same thing with her interpretation of how…"

"Coffee has been somewhat of an evolution for me. I used to only take it loaded with sugar and syrup and creamer. Over the years I have cut everything out. This was a conscious effort for me. You see, when you are in the field, the coffee tends to…"

"I think, Titus, that you made an observation on something that isn't in the text of Herodotus, which would nullify its value as an observation and transmogrify said named observation into an invention, a fiction."
