  1. Put in a valve between the bidet and the shutoff valve on the wall. You can then regulate the amount of water coming out of the wand...
  2. Thanks. Will try that once they open back up...
  3. Where did you call/how did you contact them? I renewed my GE and finally got the conditional approval and need to setup an interview. The problem is that I added Nexus to mine (I go to Canada occasionally for work) but the nearest interview site for Nexus is in Dallas. I don't give a crud about the Nexus part anymore and just want to have the regular GE so i can do the interview in Houston...
  4. My buddy own a few McD franchises in Oz and he told me yesterday this”is a bloody f’ing disaster” for them...
  5. Oops, someone already posted. Damn search didn’t work...
  6. Just finished watching ZeroZeroZero on Amazon Prime. Basic story is following a shipment of coke from Mexico to Italy. Lots of twists and turns featuring cartels, Italian mafia and even “Isis”. Highly recommended...
  7. All schools in Madrid shut for at least 2 weeks...
  8. I locked in a 3.125 (from 4) refi on my house for 30 years this week (pulling out 30k cash for improvements and overpaying principal so still paying off in 15)
  9. Making tonight but not using Clamato as it has carbs... Will use a clam juice (1T) instead...

    Melbourne

    Great Ocean Road along the coast to the the 12 Apostles (3-4 hours sw of MB).Philip Island to the the Penguins come onshore at dusk. Wine country SE of town near Red Hill... And holy crap, the amount of flies... (Maybe the recent fires killed them all off...) Spent 3 weeks driving an RV with wife and 2 year old twins from ML to Sydney a few years back... Idea was coastal towns along the coast and buying fresh seafood and grilling every night -Shrimp on the Barbie”. Uh, no. All seafood gets sent to Sydney... (Fantastic seafood market if you make it there!) And because of the fire hazard, all parks have a frigging flat metal pan that you insert coins in to fire up the gas to hear the metal plate rather than a “barbie...” Screw the concept of “ Throw another shrimp on the Barbie...” Still a fantastic country that still felt like the US in the 50’s... (Every small town shuts down at 6pm...) if you want recommendations in MB itself, my best bud is a foodie and lives in town and I can ask him what’s hot these days... Tell me what part of town you will be staying...
  11. I bought a Saber 3-Burner SS grill (Char-Broil’s high end line) over 5 years ago and their customer service has been great! Just passed the 5 year warranty and I need the infra-red grates replaced (under the grill and prevent flare-ups) as they were rusted out and they offered to replace them even though I’m past the warranty date for free if I just pay the shipping costs... I also have a BGE and WSM that I also use. (I stopped using the WSM since I got the BGE but mainly out of playing with the new toy...) one thing to consider in the kitchen is a high-BTU burner - I bought a “wok- burner” that is used by food carts all over Asia for both the Wok as well as putting a big 80lt crawfish boil pot on it. I use it for stir fry almost as much as the grill as it generates many more BTU’s than my gas countertop inside.... Running water and electricity are things that would have been nice when I built my kitchen but I’ve done fine without them... to be honest, the one thing I regret is not having a second dishwasher for the occasional times when you have a big party but am about to install a second one in the regular kitchen...

    Bolivia.

    Have a work trip planned in the coming weeks to Santa Cruz in Bolivia and was wondering if anyone has suggestions... I’ve heard the Marriot is nice but not much else... what to do there in the evenings for dinner or evening adventures... (Just did Bogota but the whole bomb sniffing dogs/armored cars/kidnapping threat kinda put a damper on the trip...)

    Airsoft thread

    Lesson learned from playing first indoor session - don't wear shoes without some tread on them. Flat rubber soles, bb's and smooth concrete floors don't like each other...
  14. I applied for my renewal in October with mine expiring next week. I'm glad they extended the grace period...
