RE: Disposable Razors Observation

Last year I was prescribed an anticoagulant(Eliquis) and needed to switch to an electric razor to avoid facial bleeds. I tried both foil type and rotary models and wound up with an expensive Braun model. My observations: 1. (Most important) You need to shave every day. Once the little hairs get long enough to become flexible, they get deflected by the foil and don't enter the little holes to get cut. 2. Shaving is very directional - if the hairs point left to right you need to shave right to left. 3. You never, ever get a close shave, all you can get is shorter stubble.

RE: Again Texas Fails Its Citizens

None of the states surrounding Texas have problems with their electrical systems. Perhaps this is because they purchased control systems capable of handling low temperatures. Texas bought cheaper control systems. The other states are also part of the grid which allows neighboring states to provide power in the event of a similar catastrophe. Texas does not belong to the grid. The Texas system is designed to deliver maximum profits for its owners with minimum concern for reliability.

RE: Getting Started - Longer Distance Camping

When are you planning to go? If you go in the winter you could run into some really substantial problems at high altitudes.

RE: I am now "terricited"

Weather on that part of Alaska can be a problem - I seem to remember seeing that Ketchikan has around 270 days of rain per year. We did a very similar cruise with a company called UnCruise in a boat that held 80 guests and another cruise in the Hawaii Islands in a boat that carried 36. Both were great and I highly recommend them. They have all kinds of cruises ranging from the Galapagos Islands to inland river trips. The crews on these boats are great but we found that the passengers were almost all very interesting people that shared our love for the same things that interested us.

RE: Thinking about downsizing to a B

Our first Class B (2006) was made by Sportsmobile in Texas. They allow you to design a floor plan based on a wide variety of units that they routinely make so you can get whatever you need that fits in the available space. Their prices were also quite reasonable so you might want to check them out.

RE: Travel CPAPs?

Direct Home Medical (https://www.directhomemedical.com/sleep-therapy-sleep-apnea-cpap-bipap.html) has the best portable CPAPS. They are a very reputable source.

RE: Travel CPAPs?

Direct Home Medical (DHM) lists the most worthwhile compact CPAPS and they are a verytrustworthy site. Use the following post - I want to remove this but don't know how.

RE: Salt water purification

I second miltvill's advice. You might check out what is available for boats on WestMarine.com.

RE: photography

I would go for the Sony. All other things being equal, shorter and lighter is always better. Communication between lens and camera body is also likely to be better. You probably don't want to hear this but you might also consider replacing your A6000 with a newer body that has faster and more accurate focusing. These are critical for photographing birds.

To bukhrn: I tried opening that site using Firefox with Avast as my security system and had no problems and no warnings.

RE: Picture posting thread...anyone into it?

Scottsnider asked "How to post pictures from my computer to a page?" The simplest way is outlined by the moderator's (BarneyS) post on 03/16/20.

RE: Still no Stimulus Payment

Our financial situation is good (at least for the present) so we donated our check to the local food bank.
