  1. Gatwick Airport shut down for the better part of a full day because two drones kept flying around the runways...Authorities calling it intentional (most likely because heavy holiday traffic is just commencing)...That suck
  2. I'm sorry this is happening to you...but in a way, it's good to hear it's not just me (I got the HSBC one, as well as something from Charles Schwab, front point security, apple, etc...and like you, I never clicked on the links, and in fact, I stopped opening the emails altogether...I also periodically get those bitcoin extortion scam emails (I had started an thread about that a while back)...the only thing scary about the latter is the fact that they do have old passwords (stolen from hacked companies - fortunately I've long since stopped using those old passwords)
  3. Particularly interested in responses from anyone in MA who might know the 'ins and outs'...but will take any advise. Long story short, I had a car that finally died on me and subsequently, we have since replaced it. We were planning to give the old car to charity for whatever they offer (just to get rid of it)...but some guy came by and said he saw the car without plates and asked if he could buy it...The main issue is that two of the cylinders lost compression (I'm not sure what the implications mean, except our mechanic said unless we want to foot the bill for a new/rebuild engine, it's time to move on to a new car)...Secondarily, it also needed front brakes, front struts, had an outstanding recall for the airbag...and who knows what else. And fwiw - its a 2009 Matrix with 180+ K miles I'm leery about selling this car to anyone, given the lemon laws we have in this state...someone mentioned we write the bill of sale to include the car is inoperable and that it's being sold as is/for parts....the guy said his brother is a mechanic and can fix it for only the cost of parts...for my part, I'm just looking to remove any liability. So my question is, will writing up this bill of sale with the language mentioned above take us off the hook for any future liability? My gut says stick with our original plan
  4. Nice - did anyone connect with one of those tarpon?
  5. Wishing you a continued speedy recovery...those Sanibel snook are waiting for you
  6. Not sure which brand you're looking at - but just to keep in mind, a 4000/5000 shimano is different (i.e smaller) than most other reels designated with the same model numbers...
  7. I think that's just for clothing and outerwear...still not a bad deal nonetheless
  8. There are select gift cards being offered at a 20% discount at Market Basket for today only...while the majority are not fishing/outdoors related, Cabelas is one of the cards being offered for this discount. And while they do not mention Bass Pro on this list, you can (of course) now use Cabela gift cards at Bass Pro...So while these stores basically never offer such a discount, this is your one chance to (in effect) get a 20% at these stores (on any merchandise). They mentioned 'while supplies last', and to that point, I thought they would be wiped out by the time I got to one of their stores...but I arrived at roughly noon-ish and found plenty left
  9. Some finds are not so obvious - a local grocery food chain here in New England (Market Basket) is offering gift card at 20% off today...It's only a selected number of brands/store chains....but does include Cabelas. It didn't list Bass Pro, but you can use Cabela gift cards at Bass Pro. It's probably your only shot at getting a 20% discount at one of those two stores...Not sure if other food chains around the country are offering similar deals
  10. Just as an fyi, Dicks usually has the same Shimano, St Croix, etc restrictions many other retailers have
  11. Currently eyeballing one of these rods...Does anyone have experience matching a saltiga 4000H with this rod, and if so, what are your thoughts? Also have a 'gosa 6000 I could match with it
  12. Only casually spent an hour or so both days of the weekend, at dusk at the res...only catching one fish each day...a good size crappie while throwing metal out deep for lakers and a small, rat laker yesterday...one more weekend to make something of this fall res season
  13. Agree....didn't watch the show itself and only watched clips aired on the news...but looks like they did a nice job trying to make amends
  14. If it landed 30 yards off a montauk beach, the skishing crowd would be all over it
  15. I didn't let this person cut in front of me, so they got in back of me and tried to take pics of my lic plate...I did report it, just in case any funny business crops up....just venting as my crap two weeks continue
