...although I would think that the mock cleats on the bottom would be uncomfortable for everyday wear on pavement."
"I've worn New Balance, Adidas, and Rebok in the past and they have several (non-neon) colors that can be worn for every-day wear. For this go-round I wanted a pair of cross-trainers that had something similar to running spikes on the sole and I…"
"I guess you could say I was calling myself an old man since I was the one seeking those type of shoes. My boys just got some new shoes and they chose blue ones; it was a bright royal blue color but it is difficult to make blue a neon color unless…"
"Kindly allow me to withdraw my "dorky" comment. To rephrase, I am looking for a non-bulky, non-running shoe, non-cross trainer casual "sneaker" to wear with jeans and a sweatshirt. Something that is comfortable but not as…"
"Hey, who are you calling an old man?
Actually I quite agree with your assessment of the state of the shoes. The only shoes I found for the gym are brilliant blue (neon if you would) but they fit and support where I need them to. I do wear them with…"
"What could be more casual than sneakers and jeans? Really what are you going for here?

"Well I can tell you this joining the masons has been a bucket list item for many years it was very important to me, and thus the lodge I chose is also. I did not just choose it out of practicality. It was because of the people that would be teaching…"
Since posting my original EDC kit, I've added a small torch (Photon Freedom Micro.)
I do have a larger Victorinox SwissChamp, but I live in the UK and (although I'm legally allowed to own a blade up to 3" in length)…"
"Since you probably won't have a access to a kiln to fire the finished sculpture - I would use one of the Amoco self hardening clays. They have a mexican pottery clay that air hardens to a nice red, without needing glazing or other decoration -…"
"I attended a Festival style for the York Rite, and while I am grateful to be allowed into the Chapter/Council/Commandery, I do feel the loss that I am not as proficient in the work as I am with the first 3 degrees.
Having said that, my 2 Blue Lodges…"
"I found that different men earn in different ways. I developed a visual mnemonic system combining my ability for spelling and words to flawlessly memorize the Q&A for all 3 degrees.
