  • OT - Little known favorites

    We all have them, maybe because we have quirky tastes, maybe 'cause most people have no taste.

    Anyway, here's a couple of mine:

    - Movie: Paris, Texas. Too slow for today's 10 second attention span. No fights, no guns, no explosions. One of my favorites.

    - National Park: Theodore Roosevelt National Park, North Unit. Remote, isolated, quiet, beautiful, under appreciated.

    What have you got? I could have listed several, but try to keep it to one or two per category.

                    I like the favorite shop tool or machine idea- mine would be the 12 inch diameter, 4 inch wide drum sander.

                      Little Red Caps - They keep caulk tubes fresh and sealed for about a year or two
                      Boelube Wax - Easy to handle and makes a huge difference when drilling
                      Sharp Drill bits - If you don't know why, you've never used one.

                      Bonus mention: KeePass. Store those little-used passwords behind a master password so you don't have to keep reusing passwords. The modern equivalent to "write it down!"

                              Tim,
                              Why Plentywood? I've been there. My great grandparents homesteaded there (well, near Dooley) back around 1905 - 1910.
                              I went out there once back in 2005 for a family reunion.
                              Stayed in Plentywood, but the reunion was across the border in Gladmar, Canada where my great aunt married and farmed.
                              Not much out there, not even Dooley anymore...explains why my granddad came to Michigan.
