    Re: Iconic GI with cigarette/cigar?

    Did you mean General Norman Cota? Lt. Col. Ben Vandervoort was portrayed by John Wayne in "The Longest Day." Or is that K&C's actual designation for the figure?

    Very nice! Who makes the casting you used?

    If I may offer a suggestion, I'd add black on his queue, for the tape used to wrap it.

    Think about it for next year, though. It beats having to rely on the buses. When the MAAM still had the arrangement to use the parking lots at the office park along Rte 183, along the south side of...

    Re: Socializing

    As I like to say, some people put on their e-muscles and behave in ways that they otherwise wouldn't, if they were face-to-face and could get a punch in the nose for the same behavior.
