Robert N. McManus commented on Herb Munson's group The Great Debate
"For J.A.Hamlin, found the truth of this when I began my nursing career. Think about inserting a sharp object into another person's arm while they squirm, jerk, yell, and question your legitimacy. Placing an IV was initially a source of some…"

Robert N. McManus replied to Jeremy Anderberg's discussion Fiction for Men -- Need Your Recommendations!
"Let's add John D. McDonald; Travis McGee is as fine a character as ever hit the page. For more classical work, Dashiell Hammet and Raymond Chandler are very fine reads for a well-rounded man. And for goodness sake, try on some Shakespeare - you…"

Robert N. McManus commented on Will's group New Warriors

Robert N. McManus replied to Pete Luscombe's discussion Lost Manly Words - I'm bringing back "Cockamamie" .... in the group The Conversationalists
"I think that there are loads of words that we have abandoned. I have always liked older slang; the movie "Tombstone" was a rich haul. Some will not fit into a modern lifestyle and probably should drop away. Although I am extremely fluent…"

I found a design I like here http://imgur.com/a/7sPww and I have a beautiful piece of bloodwood that I want to use for the top. I've never built anything like this so I'm definitely open for input.See More
