    Carhartt - Product - Series 1889 Relaxed Straight Double Front Work Dungaree
    Not as sexy as Wranglers, but another indication of a guy that's not afraid to get his hands dirty.

    I finally broke down and asked for a Kindle for Christmas, but that's because there are authors you can't get in print- dang it. Other than that- if I can't do it with my laptop, then it can wait until I can.

      Carhartt - yeah!! Super stuff - my girls have been outfitted in their insulated overalls, coveralls, and jackets for 9 years now. Out here where I live, it is regulation apparel. Not much is better for the combo of warmth and extreme durability. Those 1000-dollar down coats might also be warm, but one week out here in the sticks and they will be shredded.

        I had kindle software on my ipod. That's how I "read" starting strength. I put "read" in quotes because it's really hard to read a book that has pictures on such a tiny screen. In fact, I do not like the reading experience of anything on such a tiny screen. Anyway, my ipod is off to Alabama where hopefully they can fix it.

          Yeah, Starting Strength is an expensive book, but it's worth it in paperback.

          I don't think I'll ever trust Kindle. It makes books cheaper and more convenient to carry, but I still remember when they deleted Animal Farm and 1984 on the Kindles and just gave people a refund. "Deleting" my books will require a little more effort than that.
          In matters of style, swim with the current. In matters of principle, stand like a rock.

              I just googled it, and it looks like Amazon bought the rights to the two books from a company that didn't have the rights to sell them in the first place. Amazon admitted that it was still wrong to delete the already sold books though.

                I got a nook. It's pretty neat. I use it for GMing.
