Lol.....I'm old. I've still got tons of Craftsman tools. Before the store closed down near me, if I ever had an issue I would take it in and they wouldn't even question me. Just tell me to get another one.
I use to go to Sears and walk up and down the tool aisle just looking at all the shiney stuff I couldn't afford to buy lol!

Dude, you have to check these out. They are pricey, and sadly I can't justify the spend, but these are some great tools.

One of my former jobs was buying tools and I came across these a couple of years ago at a Fastenal trade show. I'd love to have a set of each but for the limited amount of time I turn wrenches these days, I just can't justify spending this much money on tools.

7empest gave me the best first impression. It even made it into my Rock playlist in my DJ software. It was the only song that I think I'd really play at the club while girls are on stage. I'll just cue it up at 1:14 and fade out at the first break around 5:14.

Descending; Invincible; and Fear Inoculum are definitely part of my personal "liked songs" in Spotify, but they're a little too drawn out for the club.

BTW... Many of my Spotify playlists are public. Just search glennQNYC.

My wife is a grad, I went to MTSU so I don't get to watch them play often. We try to get to a few games every year but we are going going to make it to the Wake game this season.

I bought this same pair of John Varvatos boots (in black) at least 4-5 years ago, but the car-tire sole is worn to the point that water will permeate in wet conditions. Time to replace them. I went down to the John Varvatos store at the old CBGB location at Bowery & Bleeker, but apparently, these are only sold online.

John Varvatos Portland Chukka

Some furnishings for new condo in Asheville, NC. We just spent an exhausting week there. Lots of work remaining but will be nice longer term.

I almost got a ticket coming home from the beach last weekend. I was on a 2 lane highway running 70 in a 65 and all of a sudden a cop came out of nowhere and started tail gating me. I am guessing he saw out of state tags and didn't want to deal with that, but it made me want a radar detector again. I figure $200 is cheaper than a ticket and running this and waze should keep me out of trouble.

What's the deal with the 3 lenses? I don't care enough to look it up, but curious enough to ask.
