    Oyster restoration

    I happen to live near an oyster concern called Copps Island Oysters. they produce commercially but also have a tiny retail store and if the store isn’t open, you can usually grab any of the guys working the boats to sell you a dozen or two. The owner, Norm, is ever present and I’ve given him grief for not being able to count. I ask for a dozen and when I get home find there closer to 2 or 3 dozen. Price is cheap enough already! The guys are so welcoming and friendly that I’ve taken to bringing out of town guest to pick up some oysters and get a tour of the sorting facility. If you happen to be near East Norwalk CT, check out Copps Island Oysters (Norm Bloome and Son) One question for the experts. One town over, there is another oyster farm. Hummock Island Oysters. I seen them sold in restaurants as a different type breed (not certain the nomenclature) and folk seem to be able to tell the difference. I must confess, while I dig the idea of locally harvested shellfish, Oysters are not for me. It appears to me to just be a difference in their growing environment. I know there are many breeds but these all seem to be named for the Area they’re taken from. Are they the same critter from a different hood?

    I suspect much of the NK back story is being saved for the coming prequel.

    Anyone sell jewelry?

    I inherited a few pieces from my grandmother who recently passed and am looking to sell some to help me get a down payment together on a home. Mostly diamond rings Google led me to a ton of pawn shop type places which, I don’t think, is the right way to maximize sale price. Someone suggested a site called idonowidont.com. Have any of you had experiences with this site? have any of you sage advice for someone looking to get a good price selling jewelry?

    Vendee Globe 2016?

    Though often used interchangeably, there is a difference between VMC and VMG. VMC is velocity made good on course. VMG is velocity made good with regard to the wind direction. So, if you're sailing to a point straight down or up wind they are the same. Once the destination is not straight up wind from where you started, they are different. I believe alex means good progress downwind (VMG) not necessarily towards a mark

    Manhasset Fall Series

    Disappointing show by MBYC. Been doing this regatta since the early '80s and the club has always been a welcoming place with an excellent spread for all the racers afterwards. Now we are out on the patio with a ration of undercooked sausages. Well done! Looks like Riverside's management has taken over MBYC. On the water, a distance race in great fall conditions? Since when is 11.8 miles a distance race? I am starting to see why this series is going the way of the dodo. I sent your comments to everyone at Manhasset Bay. For your information the long distance race has had the same courses for many years. Compared to a 3.5 mile windward leeward, yes, 11.8 miles is a distance race. The brautwurst was just tasty. I'm sorry you're not happy. We aim to please. We are very concerned why there is not more participation. There are many reasons for the lack of entries. Some of them are completely out of our hands. We will be doing what it takes to turn this event around. Kuddos to RC for getting those races in on Saturday.

    Manhasset Fall Series

    Sounds about right. Shaving tomorrow or the morning of? It's better to wait until you're in start sequence to make sure the trim job is extra fresh. I like my nuts as smooth as ping pong balls. shit, we hit a wave and now I'm a eunuch You were never gonna use them anyway
