[QUOTE=MARTINSR]LOL, the "economy" had little to do with the company "going out of business". Let's just say the Feds put him out of business because allegedly the owner had broken a few laws concerning how he treated his customers.

Brian Choosing your words kind of softly. LOL

Hi Rick,

Of course, I remember you. I can't put a formal date or time but I'd guess around June/July?

Their callbacks to my Dad and rarely me stopped around then. This also happened in conjuction with George Lavin and the racketeering lawsuit.

Cheers,

Jay K.

ps. More to the point, why is their website still up and who's paying the hosting bills for that site and domain registration?

Because there are people who will be sleezy forever and every single thing they do in life is sleezy. It's like the person that gets busted for something then reopens the business under his wife's name.

Do you REALLY think he is "Broke"? He has more money than we will see in a lifetime. Keeping that site running to him is like the money I have in pistachios in the bowl on my table for my guests today.

I picked this up with my gift card I got from work for Thanksgiving. My wife had already bought the turkey, we didn't need another one of them!

Brian You aren't very good at picking out bottles at the store, that one looks like it's been on the shelve too long it has evaporated some it looks like to me.

Have a nice turkey day. Bob

Jay Brian hit it right on the head. They played you like a record, as long as you kept posting how much they helped you. I had said on another thread they tried to play me when I was on the Msra Board, They gave me parts, they made sure I liked my car. I knew what they were trying, all the time I was rebuilding it from the frame up. I was surprised that people were still buying there kit, when every magazine you would pick up would have people writing in on how hard it was to get parts.
Why do they still have a web site, like Brian said they always will. My sister-in-law had her builder of her house close up for the winter, I asked her why are they stopping now, Too cold she was told, hell they work up here when it's -35. Well he was closing shop, took them for some money, before she knew he had walked away he open under a new name, She could do nothing.
You my friend will get yours done, I'm sure of it.

Happy turkey day Bob

Not one of the single malts I've sampled when in Scotland, but not all are "nice" IMHO. Of course, it is a matter of personal taste

My dad would have a shot of E&J, the regular E&J. I have never been much of a drinker but back a few years ago I started picking up shot glasses while on vacation and I would have a good brandy in the house for a shot now and again. I still can't believe how much better a brandy is after spending just a few more bucks. I wish my dad was still around so I could buy him a bottle of some VSOP. But after a recommendation to try some good Whiskey like Jim Beam Black I have found that the Whiskey is more my taste. But a good Tequila is great as well. I just tried this Speyburn for a change, springing for a few more bucks as a treat. But honestly, a shot, just a shot every few nights, it lasts a long time, why not get the good stuff?

I go to my shot glass collection and take a little mini vacation with the memories flooding my head as I pick out a glass. I never thought I would be "the guy" with a display case collection of shot glasses (same with coffee cups and beer glasses) but I enjoy the heck out them. I'm enjoying a Franziskaner beer right this minute out of a Franziskaner glass I got at an Oktoberfest celebration we went to this year.

We change over the years don't we! And I agree Bob, they all have something to offer. The way I look at it is it must be good or no one would buy it! Every single brand is going to be good to someone! So I will give it a try and see what I find. Same goes for food. Our senses are I believe Gods greatest gift to us. To taste and smell a good meal or drink, I am there and I am thankful for it every time.

Brian

I'm really not a big drinker anymore, when I was young and not so smart, well that's another story. But when I got my Kidney Transplant my 1st doctor said no drinking at all, nothing with booze. well I would get a new Doc, but they all said the same. Now I wasn't changing Docs, the U of M was, where I had my transplant. I was down there about 6 months ago, There was a new Doc.
so I asked her if I could have a beer once in awhile, to my surprise she said I don't see why not. So now on Thursday nights when our little street rod club goes out, I have a beer, you have no clue how good that first one tasted after 10 years without one. One problem, I thinks she's older than me, I hope like hell she out lives me.LOL

This slight thread hijack gave me a slight thirst so I had to 'hit' my bottle of John Jameson Irish for a wee dram.

A Scottish Whiskey Trail trip can be an interesting one. I've never nor ever will do a visit that way, but I have been known to make an occasional stop to sample the wares. I've found some that I like and some that I wont try again.

My daily is a single beer - and a fairly local one at that, Genesee Cream Ale. I do know that my son and one son in law wont drink it so I know it's as safe in the fridge as is the Guinness.

That single malt of yours, Brian, sounds like it is from near Glasgow and the River Spey
