I feel like I like China cymbals more than you GUS. But HOW much more?

GUS

A whole lot more. I like Turkey cymbols.

jim nj

Zildjian cymbals were the go-to guys in the 60's. Made in Turkey since 1623. I presume that they probably make some in China by now.

Pinandpuller

Chinese style. Trashy sounding.

A blonde police officer pulls over a blonde
The police officer asks the blonde, "Can I see you license and registration, please?". The blonde then asked, "What is that?", the police officer says, "That thing with your face on it", the blonde then pulls a mirror out of her purse, and hands it to the police officer. The police officer then says, "Oh, my bad, if I knew you were a police officer I wouldn't have pulled you over."

A man walks into a bar with a gun and yells "WHO SLEPT WITH MY WIFE! I'M GONNA KILL 'EM!"
A man calmly stands up and says, "You ain't got enough bullets, mate."

Jim nj, I have very high arches, narrow heels and achilles, and protruding ankle joints, so shoes have never fit well, even when I could find men's narrow. I blister easily if the shoe moves, so I've always kept them tight for exercise walking.

The podiatrist made the orthotics 3/4 length so I could easily put them in other shoes, but it lets them move a bit sometimes. One of these days I'll figure out what to wedge in the shoe to keep them perfectly still.

The first week I used them I felt knock-kneed, but now it feels normal and the knee doesn't wobble. The shoe feels like it wants to roll under on a right slope, but it's better than it was without the orthotic.

This is why it's unlikely that we can do a deal with Canada. Trudeau sees union boss Trumka on his side and other Americans whom he assumes will side with him And he is willing to wait for his deal. Idjet.

I's not going to happen that way. 130,000 Canadian Auto Workers are going to be ou of work when Trudeau reconvenes the negotiations tow years from now.

jim nj

Ralph,

Understood. Suburban streets are fine with me because they're usually flat. NYC streets drive me batty cause they are pitched to get rid of rainwater.

I can walk down one side of a NYC street and I'm fine. If I walk on the other side it's pitched wrong for me and my left knee suffers.

Even some suburban streets are pitched wrong. Even with orthotics I only get a partial solution. Sounds like what you're getting.

There are companies that have anti-pronation shoes, but they're ugly as sin. I tried one with a nubuck black finish. It's like flat black. Didn't work out. I felt like I was standing in my shadow, if you can understand how disconcerting it is to wear a flat black shoe.

In my New Balance sneakers I take a EEEE, so I can't well relate to narrow feet.

It's a process, or a journey, a learning experience, whatever, keep your eye open for better solutions. Spend time on the net looking for answers. I found a lot here.

Sorry to say but I found a lot of charlatans trying to resolve this.

For those of you inclined to pray, please pray for the family of a 22 year old man who drowned in a pool in the Hamptons this past weekend. The victim had been on the high school crew team with my older son for several years. The family lives here in Port Washington. The newspaper said the victim was found without any obvious injuries to the head. Was in a house with a lot of people in Springs, NY. Someone noticed he had been missing for about half an hour.

rse,

Thanks! We live in a food desert. I drive over 3 miles to the nearest Kroger. (There is one slightly closer but I don't like it's layout.) The only other places to buy food are a few fast food joints near the college south of me and a couple of drug stores which sell a few snacks and canned goods.

Indianapolis was hit pretty hard by the closing of the local Marsh grocery chain. The small mom and pop stores closed back in the 80's, for the most part. They couldn't compete price-wise with Kroger.

“I don't know what this is about yet”

It’s Drudge, so appropriate grains or trucks of salt are required, but I concur with GUS that there’s going to be a war. (Whether it’s a troops and tanks in the streets war is TBD.).

The libs keep ramping it up, look at yesterday’s hearings. They’re not going to stop. The “tech titans” - especially Dorsey - are neck deep in it.

If *they* think there’s going to be war, they’ll be sure to take their wealth and flee.

Agree completely Ralph. They should have watched on TV.

And why didn’t Grassley simply say “sergeant at arms, clear the room, remove the cameras”, and continue with the hearing?

“overtaking America is going to be easier than we thought!”

I think it is not acceptable to assume that you cannot have your family on the opening day of your confirmation hearing because the democrats have pre-planned and paid protesters arranged, as well as dem senators making personal attacks.

That is ceding the field to the left.

I favor holding the dem senators responsible, not giving them any more tickets, and restoring order. Personal attacks in questioning should cause someone to be kicked off the committee.

MM, I would agree generally that “ceding the field” is a bad idea. Had Kavanaugh insisted on no gallery out of fear of the mob, that would have qualified.

Keeping his family away isn’t. You’re turning their safety over to the mob, trusting that they’ll have the discipline to limit their harassment to verbal. If it went beyond and the kids end up injured.

I’m all for action against the senators who participated in this.

There was no way to know that themob was going to behave like that and no way to predict the personal nature of the questions the dem senators asked. Now today, I wouldn't bring relatives for the reason you suggest.

Good Morning! Dave (in MA) mentioned Pressley winning the primary against Capuano. FYI,be prepared to for her to receive the swooning Ocasio-Cortez treatment from the media. I was in a horrible mood yesterday,just reading about the hearing online for some reason really upset me. I question why the security in the hearing room was so lax. I've been told that seats for hearings are "first come,first served." So I believe that they were paid or invited (Guttenberg) by Senators.

It's part of the dog and pony show that confirmation hearings have become. Assuming there are any real world people on the fence about Kavanaugh that watched it, they'd think positively on the girls and negatively on the disrupters. Televising the hearings just turns them into a pseudo news spectacle that is as far from their reason for existing as you can get.
