    I thought that German restaurants and decent cuisine were mutually
    incompatible ?

    I *do* like the wonderfully named bratwurst though.

    Hello Graham,
    Ahem. That wasn't nice.
    Try Johnsonville "Brats" from Costco. Weird name for a bratwurst but
    they taste better than many varieties in Germany. More spicy, too. I
    like them the most when slow cooked on a Weber charcoal grill.

    Regards, Joerg

    Indeed, I have had some *spectacular* meals in Germany.
  4. A super secret German bakery is hidden in Sierra Vista with outstanding
    pretzel rolls. Which they sell out of by 6:01 am.

    Goes by the name of "bread store" or something equally subtle.

    Many thanks,

    Try the Wal-Mart knock-offs of the Johnsonville product. Just as good
    and a dollar cheaper.

    Yes, and the beer there is *way* better!

    Not according to Jim.

    The difference in property tax : +$3100
    The difference in car registration : $400
    Getting out of the commie North East: Priceless

    I'm working on it.

    ....unless you've been in the house for ten years. Then the other poor

    You don't read too well?

    Hello Luhan,
    The Pilseners and Hefeweizens sure are. But we have some excellent micro
    brews out here. Some of the (almost) mainstream brews like Sierra Nevada
    are top notch. Winfield would vote for Samuel Adams though which is also
    a wonderful beer. Then there is Widmer's Hefeweizen from Oregon.

    Regards, Joerg

    Hello Luhan,
    Except for a few large cities our Walmarts aren't super centers so they
    don't carry much in terms of food items.

    Regards, Joerg

    Ah, yes, Widmer's Hefeweizen... marvelous! Thanks to John Larkin for
    introducing me to it!

    Sam's is drinkable surely, but I wonder if it can still be called a
    "micro-brew"? Didn't Miller buy out Widmer's some 25 years back? Miller
    is worse than Budweiser. Miller screwed me out of much (for me) money
    when I was in college. I've been paying them back ever since.

    The Walmarts in most of the country are exactly the opposite. They tend
    to concentrate in the small cities, and the super-stores are *everywhere*.
    OTOH, we do our (un)fair share of making things miserable for all
    retailers. The first WalMart in the state opened in '95. ...not that I
    much care. Ammo isn't too much more expensive across the street at Dave's.
  15. If you reside in Vermont for three months, you're a legal resident. If
    you have a vehicle in the state for six months, even if you're a
    resident of another state, you must register it in Vermont (NY is three
    months, IIRC).
    It does in some states. I hope you have a good lawyer, the state has a
    lot of 'em. ...including the ones in the black robes.

    Or, just borrow somebody's plate for a day, and don't get pulled over. :)

  17. I saw one guy who had a plate with all top-bottom reversible
    letters/numbers. He had mounted it upside down. It wouldn't fool
    anybody who got really close, but I bet it would fool the automated
    cameras and OCR systems on the toll highway.

    I don't see anything in the Highway Traffic Act specifically
    prohibiting that, only defacing or altering the plate, not keeping it
    clean, covering it with material to prevent cameras from "accurately
    photographing it", etc.

    Best regards,

    I just knew it, this discussion is getting down to 'taste great' vs
    'less filling'!

    Hello Keith,
    Now they are at it again, pretty extreme pay raises for police etc. The
    same rationale they had during the stock market bubble: Oh, can't
    attract talent, the prop tax revenue supports it, blah, blah. Until that
    bubble bursts, too...

    Kids growing up in CA might want to rethink an engineering career and
    consider law enforcement, legal professions or medical. All those make a
    whole lot more money than engineers. EEs might pretty soon not be able
    to afford a median priced house anymore.

    Regards, Joerg
