    Daily MLB Banter

    Let's use this thread to place our daily MLB conversations. We sort of took over the 'Who do you root for' thread. Go Astros. Hoping for a Sweep of the Yanks tonight!!!!! Sent from the can using BtownBanners

    What books are everyone reading right now?!  I just finished Lone Survivor.  I highly HIGHLY recommend it!  I haven't seen the movie, but if it's half as good as the book, it'll be a great movie.   Next up is Monuments Men.

    Thx. Checked it out. Pretty solid. My only comment was they used a few pictures at the beginning that didn’t jive with the specifics of the story being told. But 99% of people probably would never recognize it. Such a good story!!!!

    I reread my description and stand by that still. I really think it should be mandatory reading.

    Firearms

    I have a Glock 19 which I was going to use as my conceal carry. But it was to big for my liking. It’s been relegated to house protection duties. I’ll be getting a Sig Sauer P365 for concealment in due time.

    It’s definitely ripe for a movie. I’ll have to check out the documentary.

    Finished The Boys in the Boat by Daniel Brown. It’s about the University of Washington’s Crew team from the early 1930s. Focused mainly on one individual who had a terribly upbringing and fought through, persevered, and won at life. Well written. It ties in Nazi Germany as Berlin hosted the 1936 Olympics. It was also interesting to read how much impact rowing had on a mainstream level. Just a wonderful story.

    Ok. Just signed up for Goodreads. It'll take a while to get used to it.

    I do too. This was just released not too long ago. Finished the Guardians. If you like the Reckoning, you'll enjoy the Guardians. I've not read too much Grisham, but I like how these are based loosely on true events.

    It was a really good book. I kind of saw it but not really. I'm nearing the end of his book, The Guardians. Then I'll be on to the latest Baldacci book, Walk the Wire. Part of the Amos Decker series.

    I completed The Glass Hotel by Emily St John Mandel. It was a little slow going at first with a lot of character/story building, but once the details were set, the book flew. A good book about money, love, and financial crime. I wouldn't say it was great or even solid, but still good. Not as good as Station Eleven (post-apocalyptic) however.

    I just finished "The Pioneers: The Heroic Story of the Settlers Who Brought the American Ideal West". It's written around the group of settlers who first settled the Ohio Territory. Focusing mainly around Marietta, Ohio. Really cool book if you're into 1780-1820 era books. I really enjoyed it.

    Another great idea. I’ll probably do another. But maybe use a couple different colors for the epoxy.

    Great idea. I didn’t consider that. Even a 1/4” ply would be good enough I’d think. It wouldn’t even have to be a full cross, just maybe a 2” length.

    Thanks man. I have some teak I’m thinking I might use. How would I get it to stay in the frame you think? Glue it? Does glue adhere to epoxy/wood?

    Deciding whether to frame it or not.

    Finished The Ghost of Eden Park by Karen Abbott. It's about a bootleg kingpen (George Remus) from the Cincinnati area. Non-fiction. Interesting in many facets, the location, the era, the legal process. Very cool book.

    My exact thoughts. I wish him the best of luck. He'll do himself well at a MAC level school IMO.

    My library doesn't have that one. I'll have to source it elsewhere. Just finished Unknown Valor. A wonderful mix of textbook history and personal stories.
