Re: Signature Golf Holes that are worth traveling to? . . . And. . Most Memorable Golf Experiences?

I’ve seen a lot of golf in the 58 yrs. that I been playing. Here are a couple of memorable bloopers you might enjoy and I can’t explain. About 30 yrs. ago in a S.F.F.D. fun tournament, one fireman in our group was new to the game. On the 16th tee he took a mighty swing, hit the ball, which proceeded...

Re: Signature Golf Holes that are worth traveling to?

#18 at Pebble Beach...one of the greatest finishing holes in golf!
Jack Nicklaus always said, if I had only one round left to play, it would be at Pebble Beach.
Couldn’t agree more.

Re: Hassle free luxury car

As I stated in an earlier post, I purchased a Panamera 4S this year. With adequate research and numerous test drives, here’s a couple of observations. IMO the base Panamera is underpowered with a very firm ride...you will feel every bump! Nothing luxurious about that. The 4S was a night and day eye ...

Re: Hassle free luxury car

Have owned BMW 7 series, MB 350, & Acura MDX. Purchased a 2015 Porsche Panamera 4s last June with 22,500 mi., for 44k! A depreciation drop of over 60 % in 5 years. What a beautiful car! JD Powers rates it 4.5 out of 5 in reliability. I have a great Indy mechanic who steered me away from a gorgeo...

Re: Any car enthusiasts? (or soon to be)

Just turned 67 and enjoying a 2015 Porsche Panamera 4s that I purchased in June for 44K, with 22k miles with a sticker price of 119k. Pretty hefty depreciation! What’s not to love...comfort, power, handling, styling and yes, 4 doors! Couldn’t be happier. Will drive this car for as long as my driving...

Atomic coffee/espresso maker 50+ yrs. old,
made in Italy by Brevetti Robbiati. Truly a work of art that will last longer than I.

Re: Buying a new car using Costco

We used the Costco auto program in September of 2018. DW wanted a Honda HRV and we leased one over the Labor Day Weekend. The designated dealership greeted us with a better “Labor Day Special” than the apparent Costco pricing...so we thought. Upon the Costco follow up, they were not happy! Costco re...

Re: Worth fixing a 30-year-old Maytag dryer?

I’d have it fixed! Recently purchased a Maytag washer from Costco, it lasted 5 weeks! Completely stopped working...kaput!
Costco picked it up and we purchased a Whirlpool from Lowe’s. Ironically Whirlpool makes Maytag!
Seems these days, they’re not made to last!

Re: Discount wine sites for upscale wine?

Not sure how high of a high end price fits your budget. Over the last couple of years I’ve purchased some phenomenal red wines (mainly Cab) from Vivino.com. My buying zone is usually in the $30-$60 per bottle range. These wines would list at the winery or retail from $50 to $150+. Some favorite exam...

Re: Shipping Wine in Warm Weather

For years I’ve been ordering red wine through the Vivino app. At check out they offer delivery with an ice pack for an additional $6...money well spent during warmer weather. Also, lately vendors have been using styrofoam cases for shipping the wine. The last thing you want is to have a great Cab “c...
