    I don’t think so. The PAC-12 is terribly anemic. Don’t see a powerhouse like the early 2000s USC from the PAC-12 anytime soon.

    We should do a survey to see how many days @brit will stay with the same avatar. :).

    I realize the PAC-12 has been criticized in here... Maybe I'm a little biased, having lived practically on the Stanford campus the year my Dad taught at the Law School. What was then Stanford Stadium was well in view from our balcony. (Course I now call it Hoover Field, since the only thing that looks familiar about it now is the..well, the field itself).

    Not right now. I'm watching tracking on a watch I watched in an auction of many watches.
    Details Paul?!? Maker, model? Wind up, autowind, battery or solar? Day and date? Numbers; Arabic or Roman? Glowy hands and/or spots? Original band or replacement/upgrade?

    I looked at hundreds until my mind went futzy. Chose this on for it's "old fashioned" style.
    Caravelle by Bulova 44B117.gif
    It's made by Bulova, still in production or at least available from retail shops. Found it on an auction site and paid less than half price including shipping. They said it functional... I'm hoping I can pop the band off and swap in one of those military style NATO straps.

    Leather strap, made in Japan, similar in appearance to yours @RyX, with the red numbers inside the regulars. No glow in the dark and no date on it. It hasn't stopped on me in the 4 or 5 months I've had it.

    NO NO NO. I am not a SEC Fan and will not cheer or pull for Auburn, Florida or Tennessee. Their success does not help my SEC team at all. In fact their success impacts our success recruiting etc. Florida's success in multiple championships didn't help Alabama or Georgia at all.

    Great looking watch Jim. I really like the Steinhart Pilot watches. I have come close to pulling the trigger several times.

    Steinhart watches are nice. It has taken restraint to stop at one.

    Very nice, Jim. I've come close to pulling the trigger on a Steinhart. The OVM really catches my eye.

    Last day of August Adjustables

    Tub of Frankensoap
    Omega Pro 98 boar
    Suribachi & cool water
    Univinlions shavette
    Feather AC Pro blade
    '59 Fat Boy on number 9
    Gillette silver Blue blade
    Pinaud Clubman AS lotion
    SOTD 08312019 ABT1.gif Sort of a Barbershop to the Frankensoap. Can't complain about the lather, either. First pass with the kami-shavette. One heel nick from a less than perfect set down. Two more passes with the Gillette caught the missed spots from the single blade holder. Pinaud since it falls in the scent category of the mixed soaps. All well in my world.
    Good Shaves Y'all!
