RE: March 29 Viet Nam Veterans Day

Iowa has proclaimed Vietnam Veterans Recognition Day as May 6, 2016. Our chapter of VVA has presented color at the Iowa Vietnam Veterans Memorial for several years. Our chapter has been invited to present colors for several events. I wasn't aware that there was another day designated. Iowa Vietnam Veterans Recognition Day

RE: Another Navy SOS recipe

Do all the recipes require a phillipino cook? After getting out of the Navy I felt funny due to the lack of phillipinos in my life. Still doo The ship I served on had a lot of Filipino Commissarymen (cooks) aboard. At that time (late 60s - early 70s), many of them were E-3s, married, and wearing 20 years of service stripes. That's because none of them got out. As poor as that pay was, it was a fortune to their families back home. The very best of them worked in the Officer's Mess (Kitchen and Dining Room). Excuse the wording. The Navy doesn't call anything the same as the rest of the world. That was about the time the Navy combined the Stewardmate MOS and the Commisary Man MOS. I think the title was changed to Mess Management Specialist. Most of the Filipino MMS were Stewardmates before then. They cooked and served meals to the officers. I got out in "71 as a E-6. I started out as a meat cutter which was at one time part of the Commissary Man MOS.

RE: What Happens 1 Hour After Eating Bacon

If you want something really tasty and it can't be as bad for you as a slice of bacon. It's bacon butter. That's raw bacon and spices pureed in a blender to make a butter. Smear the butter on chicken or whatever and grill. Yummmmm1

RE: Getting ready to hit the road

I plan on heading to Texas Dec. 27. The DW plans on leaving the 28th. I wonder how that will work. I'm getting things lined up now in case I get my way. Got a call from friend in park today wondering what was wrong. I'm ready to go. Update: Had a Dr. appointment yesterday. He has some concerns with my cardiac status. Have appointment with cardiologist next Wednesday. May be a chance we won't get out of here right after Christmas.

NE Iowa to Edinburg, Tx

I've heard of long delays on I35 in Texas. Considering a alternate route this year. I have gone the South of Kansas City then over to Big Cabin then south route. I thought the roads were terrible in Oklahoma. I wasn't crazy about the small towns either. I was pulling a 5th wheel then. I won't be doing that this trip. I will have to time my travel so that I will have pet friendly accommodations along the way. Any suggestions?

RE: This is how to make a profit

Salesman from CW called me today. I told him that I wouldn't be doing business with his store. Sales manager called later and tried to tell me that document fee was standard through out the industry. I told him I wouldn't pay it. I could see a reasonable document fee in a high population area but usually I'm next in line at the DMV here in Iowa. Just added profit for most dealers. If you are going to advertise the price advertise that figure too. It just goes to show you that their first priority is to screw the customer by Lowering the price by $2100 as soon as I showed resistance. We have decided to wait until spring when there will be a better selection though I have found a unit exactly like they are selling for $1300 less than their last offer. Cleaner too.

RE: This is how to make a profit

Update. Salesman called me today. He asked what I was willing to give. I told him $3500. He said that was a ridiculous offer. I said "Well you started it." Called back. Said he talked the sales manager into dropping $2100 off of the price. Said I could get it for $6835 on the road or in his words "Before tax and license just under $6000. Tax and would be about $350. What?? I can fill the gas tanks for $15 and buy a decent battery for $80 retail. I can hire a maid to clean it for a lot less than $390. All they have to do is show me that everything works as it should. They are getting close. It's simple. I write them a check, they hand me a title and I take it to the DMV and get it transferred and pay sales tax. I think the transfer costs $10. Checked out rvtrader.com and there are at least a dozen of this popular floorplan under different labels (same manufacturer. same year or newer) within 200 miles of my location that are $2000 less than the latest offer. Right in line with what I would have offered. This means that they may accept an offer too. I may make some phone calls in the morning.

RE: This is how to make a profit

I fully understand tax, title and license fees on top of the a.greed upon price. I don't understand how anyone would do business with an establishment that hits you with all these hidden fees. I'll take my business elsewhere

This is how to make a profit

Stopped at Camping World today. Looking for a smaller used travel trailer to use on vacation next summer. The plan is to buy and sell or put on a permanent site after the vacation. Looked a 23 ft. travel trailer that was in decent shape. Salesman said $6995 was the asking price. Also the price listed on their web site. I thought I could deal off of that price. Get in the office and salesman returns from the sales managers office with a price. Now it is over $9000 with tax and license. They want $399 processing fee and $1400 to clean, install battery and fill gas tanks. I refused to pay $339 for processing fees as I believe that is part of the cost of doing business. I can do a lot of cleaning and put a good new battery in it for a lot less than $1400. It has 20# tanks and I can get them filled for $15 apiece. $6995 Is a little high but was willing to deal a little off of that but I won't pay the extra $1800 . As far as I'm concerned it is a bait and switch operation. They won't get my business.

RE: Texas Barbecue in San Antonio

I don't remember . the name but maybe someone else knows it. A place kind of up in the hills, I think it was to the east of SA. A little ways out. DW's cousin took us there while visiting. It was good stuff! Could the name of the place you mentioned be TEXAS PRIDE? My son and daughter-in-law took us there and it was really good. I am not sure exactly where it is but is out in the country. Texas Pride is east of SA . Not sure which highway. Maybe 1601. This was one of three places that was featured on Diners, Drive=ins and Dives that I have been to. No impressed a bit. Place was filthy greasy and in my opinion the food was not that good.

RE: SOS: share your recipe

We can buy real dried beef in the meat department of our super market. They slice it for you. Made from a solid chunk of beef. Not ground up and stuffed in a casing type of beef. It is about $9 a pound but probably not as expensive as the stuff in a jar. A quarter of a pound goes a long way. Otherwise I make mine similar to all of you.
