What kind of knife?

I agree with the comments about learning to do it yourself, but freehand sharpening is a skill that takes time to learn, and you'll want to do on cheaper knives at first.

I usually recommend a lansky constant angle sharpener for most people. It's easy to use, and will give you a perfect edge, much better than most people get freehand.

If you still need it sharpened in a week or so,
Send me a PM, I'm in Brea, and could sharpen it for you if you like. (Knife making is my hobby)

Yeah I am set to graduate in December and I was feeling a bit lost so I ended up getting a book. This one in particular, not sure if this is a "good" book but it has definitely helped me understand what my wife's body is going through week to week as well as knowing what I need to worry about. I usually take a few minutes every Monday morning too read through that weeks content haha. I am sure there are online blogs that cover it as well. Also picked up a copy of What to Expect When Expecting and the first year version from Goodwill. there are so many copies of that book there haha.

Hang in there brother!

Anything in the Santa Ana Mountains or (a little further form you) Laguna, there will be trails! Just look for green on Google maps, zoom in and see if there is a trail. I mentioned Black Star Canyon which is a really good one. but I'm sure you can find more. I know road trails a lot better, so I can't remember names of specific MTB trails. I'd probably look at Oneill regional park, Whiting Ranch Wilderness Park, Anything coming off Alta Laguna Park will be stupid fun, I've always wanted to do the Westridge Trail, but never have. There are good books on this type of thing too, here is one

My favorite book that lists day hikes is this one:

It has very detailed information about each hike, including length and elevation gain, as well as really good instructions on finding trail heads. The maps are good, too. I use the book in conjunction with online trail reviews to get a good sense if I'll enjoy the hike or not. It is a few years old, but I haven't had any issues yet with information being outdated.

Another decent book to check out:

I was getting murdered last year. This year I'm a little better prepared. I highly recommend:

I'm in south Irvine I use this antenna:

It works in one room but not very well in another. You're best bet is to pick one up, or something similar locally, and try it yourself

u/mpgonzalez_9 · 3 pointsr/orangecounty

I got the 35-mile range version of this AmazonBasics antenna. Works great for me in Tustin, and an incredible value at $18.

About chalk, get this :

It's basically invisible chalk and does not leave a mess. I've been using it and it's amazing.

This is a great book. Also, others from the same author.

If you don't have the money, you can find a copy online and purchase it once you have the money.

this might do it, i had the same issue for a long time and couldn't figure it out until i threw everything on a ups because i was integrating a esxi host into the whole setup. turns out the router/modem was losing power long enough to lose it's DHCP but wasn't properly renewing without a full power cycle. Any basic battery backup like this will help if it's a power issue. If it doesn't fix it just make sure you can return it.

By no means do I want to defend her, what she said, or what she stands for, but I think those books might be pocket-sized copies of the Declaration of Independence and the US Constitution. She might even be handing them out as complimentary copies, I don't know.

I had a little time to look into it, but it seems a lot of this information on the migration of Confederate soldiers comes from Gordon Breckin, the mayor who's inscribed on the statue. He wrote two books [1] [2] about civil war veterans in Orange County, not just Confederates veterans. They seem like amateur works, but the Santa Ana Historical Society appears to give them a seal of approval and there's a good number of veterans buried in the local cemeteries. It's unseemly that he put together that much work and still pushed for a monument to the CSA, but sometimes Civil War buffs are like that.

Non-mobile link

That being said, based on the 5-pack that is shown as a related item, it looks like what I remember.

u/IrvineCrips · 1 pointr/orangecounty

I bought this used for $150 amd it has been a life saver. Would cool my apt living room very quickly.

>Haha where do you get this kind of rhetoric from?

From Lyndon B. Johnson, full quote: "These Negroes, they're getting pretty uppity these days and that's a problem for us since they've got something now they never had before, the political pull to back up their uppityness. Now we've got to do something about this, we've got to give them a little something, just enough to quiet them down, not enough to make a difference... I'll have them niggers voting Democratic for the next two hundred years".

>Do you come up with it on your own or is there a talking points bulletin distributed?

It's from a book, read it for yourself:

I just got this

Took all of 5 minutes (no joke) to setup, and I can roll it away when it's not needed and put it in the closet.

I have not read this book, but Harvard Historian, Lisa McGirr wrote a book on the rise of conservatism in Orange County in the 1960s

Lots of trails in south orange county. I finally bought a book on the subject (I'll post the name of it when I get home). I ride Tijeras/Trabuco loop quite a bit. But I've also ridden Bellview Trail (by Coto). There is lots of trails in and around Saddleback mountain. I'm a poor climber so I stay away from those. I hear Whiting Ranch is a good trail. Theres trails in Laguna Niguel and Crystal Cove.

Have you tried the socaltrailriders website?

EDIT: Here's the book.

> grab all brakes and lay down the bike

This is never the right answer. There is no situation where "laying it down" is the optimal solution. If you think it is, I highly suggest learning more about safe motorcycle riding, practicing, and improving your skills.

The stopping distance of a bike with both tires on the ground is dramatically shorter than the distance your body will slide on the ground. That is, until your body collides with an immovable object. You are risking death by intentionally laying it down just as much as intentionally slamming into a car. Either option is demonstrating a lack of control of your motorcycle. This is unsafe both for you and for everyone else on the road.

Source: 15+ years riding experience. Never "had ta lay 'er down" a single time. Also I regularly practice emergency braking maneuvers.
