      Bit of a spending spree...some things I needed, others...not so much:

      New backpack for the 5th grader:


      New wallet for me:


      New sunglasses (hopped on the OT bandwagon and picked up the AO Original Pilots):


      New WiFi-enabled BluRay player:


      I love this thing - Netflix, YouTube, Amazon Instant Video, Vudu, Crackle... so cool. I watched episodes of All in The Family and Barney Miller...I miss really good sitcoms!

      All opinions are not equal. Some are a very great deal more robust, sophisticated and well supported in logic and argument than others.

      I'm embarrassed to admit i picked up a pair of new wayfarers a few months ago. As for the most recent purchase:

      I've carried a Glock 19 since 2008. Slowly trying to transition from the 19 to the 27. The shooting in Colorado made me ask myself what 9mm would do to someone wearing full armor like that freak was; I switched to 40 for that reason. 10 shots of 40 (even with armor) will definitely leave someone hurting.

      Buddy of mine is a Tarrant County (Fort Worth, TX and surrounding area) Sheriff's Deputy. He shot a guy in the head with a 9mm and it didn't kill him. He moved up to a .40 so it would work better next time.

      Story?

      Fred (the deputy) was working part time security at a bank somewhere in Fort Worth. The bank was robbed and Fred pursued. Outside one of the guys (where was two) got behind Fred and slit his throat with a knife. Fred turned his gun around and fired a shot over his own shoulder into the mans face.

      Fred is OK. Just has a serious scar on his neck/chin area. Happened a couple months back.

      I bought mine in 1993 from a tub full of them at a gun show. Mine are real AF spec with parkerized frames and a blue vinyl case with the usual mil-spec info on it. I am OG. I paid $10.

      He is a law enforcement officer who was working security at the bank when it was robbed. Of course he is going to go after them.

      Of course? I have a hard time believing that any company would require a security guard, armed or not, to chase armed robbers.

      It's a bank, they are insured. Risking your life is idiotic.

      I bought the Sony BDP-390 from Amazon

      Scroll down the Amazon page and you'll see a nice feature comparison chart between the four models in this line-up. I bought the cheapest model that had built in Wifi - I had no need for the other features like 3D processing or dual core processors. So far I am loving it.

      The only thing I would have liked was the option to add a keyboard. Then I found the Sony Remote Media device app for my iPhone. As long as both the phone (or iPad) and the WiFi player are on the same Wifi network, you get complete control of the player - including a full qwerty keyboard - right from your phone or tablet. It works great.

      Every cop I know, which is a decent number since I am a firefighter myself, would do the same thing. They are police first and foremost. They are police whether they are on the clock or not. It's their job to stop the bad guys and they all know the risks. It shouldn't be a case of whether the bank is insured. It's a case of stopping the bad guys in the world because not enough people give a **** when it comes to doing so.

      If I see someone in need or someone doing something bad I'll do the best of my ability to help that person or stop a criminal. Why? That's just who I am. I have put my life in danger many times while entering burning buildings. Why? Because I feel a moral obligation to do what it is right and to help my community. I have been in the heart of burning buildings that are pitch black and cooking at several hundred degrees thinking "why in the hell do I do this?... and not even get a pay check!" ( I am a career firefighter for one dep, and volunteer for another) and while I am sitting there kicking myself, I still know the correct answer. Because someone has to.

      replacement gears for my sewing machine (which is older then I am)



      was sewing some straps on a heavy canvas bag and I think it was just too much, ripped like 3 teeth off whoops.
