Changing the Clip on a Spyderco Para-Military 2

The Spyderco Para-Military 2 has four positions for the mounting of the clip.  To change the clip to another position you will need a T7 Torx screwdriver. I ordered mine from Amazon.com.  The total price for a 6-piece set was $5.31 plus shipping.  To reposition the clip, remove the three screws, then retighten in the new desired position.  Easy as that.

Notes On Refinancing A Home

Having just completed the paperwork necessary to refinance a home mortgage, it is appropriate to share a few thoughts.

First, there is a reason people hate lawyers, to wit, the preposterous number of signatures required.  For a simple refinance, same residence no second mortgage, it required a total of 32 signatures and 14 initials to consummate all of the necessary documents.

Second, why is it essential to disclose one’s race and ethnicity to borrow money?

Third, it was in sum a positive move.  The refinance resulted in a 5-1 ARM at %4.5.

Review Of Primo Oval XL Grill

This is a review of the Primo Oval XL grill and smoker.  I have been pondering this purchase for some time and I thank all of you for your comments and suggestions.  I purchased the Primo to replace my Medium Big Green Egg (BGE).  I was not replacing my BGE because I was not satisfied with it.  To the contrary, the BGE was the best grill and smoker I have ever used, and I will continue to keep my BGE recipes listed here.  I replaced it only because I needed a bigger grill.  That being said, here are my experiences with my new Primo.

  • Receiving The Primo
    • To begin with, the weight of the Primo was over 350 lbs when shipped.  This shipment included:
    • This is one of the down sides to the Primo, that is, there are fewer Primo dealers than BGE dealers.  Thus, it may be necessary to order the Primo and have it shipped.  I could not find a Primo dealer in the D.C. area.
