Christopher M. Bartone replied to Greg Carter's discussion The Man's Kitchen
"I would recommend 2 cutting boards: a plastic one for meats, and a nice thick wooden one for everything else.  Less chance of contamination that way. Get yourself a couple of good heavy wooden spoons...you'll be amazed at how much use you…"

Christopher M. Bartone replied to Uncle Sam's discussion 20 years old and enlisting tomorrow. Tips and thoughts?
"Here's the advice my WWII vet grandfather gave me: Keep your eyes open, your mouth shut, and NEVER volunteer for anything.   My addition is to resist the temptation to get involved in the "us vs them" attitude I see too many…"

Christopher M. Bartone replied to John Baka's discussion What goes with a brown checkered jacket?
"It would be helpful to see a pic of teh jacket, but a plain white shirt goes with just about everything.  You could also go with off-white/cream, pale green, light blue shirts (solid, no stripes or pattern).  Pocket squares, you could do…"

Christopher M. Bartone replied to Matt's discussion Whiskies and Scotches
"Ah, thank you for setting me straight Martin; I wasn't sure about my information.   Knowing who owns Caol Ila is far less important to me, however, than knowing where I can find it locally!  I usually have to…"

Christopher M. Bartone replied to Matt's discussion Whiskies and Scotches
"Caol Ila (which if memory serves might be owned by Laphroaig...): hard to find but the best single-malt I've had.  Smoky, peaty, and just amazing."

Christopher M. Bartone replied to Trentington's discussion Uniforms
"I don't see a problem with the dress blues, it harkens back to the traditional army color (as several people have pointed out).  I do regret that they cut out service greens, since now there's no intermediate between dress and BDUs…"

Christopher M. Bartone replied to John Opalenik's discussion Advice for a manly classroom
"What subject do you teach?  What level?  Might influence what you do.   Old-fashioned maps are cool, a well-stocked bookcase with things other than the assigned texts, the photos and quotes are a good touch (don't forget other…"

Christopher M. Bartone replied to The Earl of Essex's discussion Office ideas
"Another reason is that in some places (such as where my wife works), you might not be able to call a cell phone from the office phones for some reason.  The system won't let you dial one."

Christopher M. Bartone replied to Jeremy Garth Richardson's discussion Personal care products not where you would expect to find them!
"Taylor of Old Bond Street is great...I haven't tried their sandalwood but I like their lavender shave soap."

Christopher M. Bartone replied to Jeremy Garth Richardson's discussion Personal care products not where you would expect to find them!
"I've discovered the Bigelow shaving cream, too...if you look closely you'll see it's made by Proraso, a pretty big and reliable name.  The eucalyptus took a little getting used to, yes, but I like it.  I mostly use the stuff…"

John C. replied to Thomas James's discussion Paying off a large credit card debt vs. settlement? Are there pros? How bad are the cons?
"Federal law establishes basics, but each state gets to add to it, and those who execute the laws have wide latitude, so you need to know the players."

Rebekah replied to Thomas James's discussion Paying off a large credit card debt vs. settlement? Are there pros? How bad are the cons?
"Why does bankruptcy vary state-to-state?  Just the jurists involved?  Are state homestead laws part of the law governing b/k proceedings?  Obviously, b/k is a matter of federal statute and case law."
