    Mr Akro and I have had just a really bad experience with Back in the Saddle and, after checking with the BBB, it appears that we are not the only ones. They have still not refund our shipping costs...

    The 206 is a pretty good choice for what you are talking about. The Bonanza would probably have too many CG issues, but it would be lighter on the controls. You just have to be careful with the 206 -...

    Heck, if money is no object, just go for a Pilatus ;-)

    There is no hour requirement by the FAA, outside of currency requirements, but most insurance companies have certain annual minimums. These are generally fairly low, but there will be specific...

    Mr Akro and I both have our PPLs. I was fortunate enough at the time to have a boss who was a CFI on the side, so it only cost me $2K to get my license. We used to have a Pitts S-2C but now just have...

    Craig's List is also a good source of older machines, which are a better bet than a lower end newer model, imo. The older Singers and Berninas are excellent options if you don't need tons of...

    As a long time F1 fan who lived during the Hunt era, I was somewhat disappointed with the movie and its coverage of the actual racing. In fact, Mr Akro and I walked out of the movie feeling more than...

    Sorry, but I think Sophie deseverved to be placed higher - beautiful second round :-(

    Yep, my hunter trainer was also placed in a class at Scottsdale that she wasn't in!

    Sometimes though, it is worth checking strange results with the officials. One time, I wasn't called for a...

    I wonder what the judges at Del Mar National were thinking then, lol. I have never seen so much bling in my life! Brow bands, helmets AND matching blingy trim on the jackets. We were getting quite...

    Another vote for Ekornes Stressless sofas here. They are incredibly comfortable and are the only sofas that provide me with adequate back support. We have two sets that Mr Akro bought twenty years...

    Dressage related places near Barcelona?

    I get to accompany Mr Akro on his business trip to Barcelona next week, and was wondering if anyone knew of any good horsey places nearby that I could visit - dressage barn or tack store maybe?

    Given the uniform and lifestyle comments, I am wondering if this guy is a pilot. Very easy in that case to be away from home at the holidays with the wife being none the wiser.

    The Trout by Franz Schubert ;-) I had to sing this song in high school! A friend of mine bought this particular washer so, when I visited her, she had to run her machine just so that I could hear it,...

    Had one just over two weeks ago. My previous ones have been pretty straightforward, but the endodontist I was sent to this time didn't give me enough lidocaine, despite my telling him I wasn't numb...

    It's even worse for Mr Akro and I. We are drummers in a local competition pipe band and we have to play this song at just about every gig the band does - sometimes more than once! Aghhhhh!!!

    We have BCBS of CA through Mr Akro's job. They are okay for most things, but we have had several major battles in the past two years that have required the intervention of his company's HR department...

    I had to have a colonoscopy last year as part of my breast cancer follow up by my GP. I was pleasantly surprised to find that it was not bad at all.

    I learned in a Cessna 152 and we have had a Bonanza V35B for several years. Mr Akro even has his doctorate in physics. Luckily, he also has extensive aerobatic training, and even survived flying as...

    Flying a Pitts Special is roughly the equivalent of riding a horse like Totilas ;-) Immediate response to all aids and no room for error! However, since it is a taildragger, it can also get on the...

    I would love to have a paid membership forum. I get so tired of missing the Off Topic Days because I don't find out about them until it is too late.
