Re: Any cider fans?

I find the Bold Rock too sweet.

I've tried some of Austin Eastciders and found them pretty good. I must confess I'm partial to some Magners on draught when I can find it

Re: What gig are you going to?

Re: Let's talk about cars

I'm going to be in a similar position when it comes time to replace my C7 Corvette. The new mid-engined C8 won't have a manual option either.

Re: new car suggestions for first time in the US

If buying new then a Honda or Toyota is going to give the best resale value. But buying used I'm not sure they are such a good deal. Most cars these days are very reliable if they have been...
