    Folks: Putting some charcoal pieces (best is activated carbon) into old socks/stockings in the trunk of your cars - usually used for fishing trips - will help to control bad odors ... Hope this will help a bit !

    Action needed.

    Mahigeer, Thanks for your 'Action Alert' post informing all of us about the on-going issue that politicians love to come up with during election years in the name of the people, and even that of 'scientists' lofty desires as shown in your post. We just have to be alert, don't we?

    Quoted: "This is why scientists throughout California and around the world are imploring us to act, and why we have responded with our legislation ..." Don't know what "scientists" whom this bureaucrat Ash Kalra of San Jose is referring to, but as a member of The American Federation of...

    OK, Gents.! Can't help having that feeling of nostalgia while viewing your Nor-Cal photos... bearing memories of those good old years of fishing I traversed during the 50-60's years up there ! Fishes were abundant then, and during weekends I used to drive all the way up to the Golden Gate...

    Always fishing.

    Sausalito ? It's got to be near that beautiful Pinnacle Restaurant with full view of the famous Alcatraz and the Golden Gate where below I used to fish... In the 60's we called that unique section of the Bay "The reserved Rough-Life society"... Cheese, time has flown by so fast, and the ship...

    My DIY crab snares

    For a DIY project, would you mind telling me best places where I can get those blue nylon strings and tightening fittings (like those shown in your pixs.) needed to form loops for the crab snare units. I couldn't find them at Home Depots, Lowes', and other local hardware stores... Many thanks!
