    '50 Olds fastback
    I remember somebody was offering a conversion for the Revell 1950 Olds to the fastback. I don't believe it was Hendrix or Flintstone (although I could be wrong- there's don't look like they're designed for it.)
    Anyone have a pointer in the right direction?

    Remarkable recovery.

    I taught for ten years.
    Trust me, the joy just isn't on the part of the student.

    I certainly hope all of us can agree that it is this philosophy that must be our common enemy, even if our sub-interests in cars are not commonly shared. 
    I've signed that petition and helped circulate it. I encourage all of you to do the same thing. Want to stop it? Be heard or suffer the potential consequences.

    Sad and funny at the same time.
    On both counts.

    Very sad to hear this. 
    One of the best bands of the last fifty years. I love their music.

    $13 for a 3-pound bag? That's a steal, especially if it's good coffee. 
    Almost worth a Costco membership just for that.

    I've noticed this, too.
    I wouldn't sell all, Dave, and it sounds like you're not, which is good, although it's not always bad to downsize a little, either, or re-orient your collection to fit interests and needs. As difficult as caring for someone with memory issues is, you need to take care of yourself, too. 
    Right now, we're dealing with the inevitable coming with my grandmother- her mind is okay, but that's about all that is. At 104, that she has done as well as she has is utterly amazing to me, and everyone else that knows her. 
    Hang in there, and you always have us to talk to for any reason.

    Ah, okay.
    When Rob first moved down to NYC- he went to Williamsburg- I know. I loaded my late, lamented Caprice to bear and drove him down from Providence.
    I'll keep that in mind. Next time I head that way and can plan a bit of urban exploring, I'll be in touch. I'm assuming it's accessible by subway or bus? When I get to Rob's place, my car usually stays parked.

    I have never heard SS396 before. Cool song.

    Being the resident Armenian mix (Mom's side of the family,) I've developed a liking for different food. 
    Karrie makes her kapusta with apple juice, which is really good. Kielbasa, potatoes, a little bit of onion and some carrots. Tasty. I'm going to try making some sometime. Bigos sounds good. A bit deadly, but good. 
    Sounds like I need to make a visit to your part of Brooklyn sometime. Sounds like some very good food to be found around there. One of my best friends- the guy who's closest to a brother for me, lives in Red Hook, and a girl I went to high school with lives in Park Slope, and they're not real far from each other (literally a few streets.) Where are you in relation to those parts?

    She's cute. Who? 
    That kielbasa looks delicious.

    There's one little store in Worcester, Ma., Golemo's, that carries fresh Polish stuff. Never been there, but it's supposed to be quite cool to visit. 
    I didn't realize paczki were made year-round? 
    I looked up zimne nogi. I think I'll pass on that and czarnina. 
    Kapusta is good, though, at least the way my friend makes hers.
