    Thanks for that one. I actually laughed out loud and my dog stared at me as if I was nuts.

    West Virginia Ghost Story

    Hi Everyone, here is a WV ghost story. Steve


    This happened about a month ago just outside a little town in the

    Low country of West Virginia, and while it sounds like an Alfred

    Hitchcock tale, it's real. A guy was on the side of the road hitchhiking on a really

    dark night in the middle of a thunderstorm.

    Time passed slowly and no cars went by. It was raining so hard he

    could hardly see his hand in front of his face. Suddenly he saw a car

    moving slowly, approaching and appearing ghost-like in the rain. It slowly

    crept toward him and stopped.

    Wanting a ride really bad, the guy jumped in the car and closed the

    door, only then did he realize that there was nobody behind the wheel.

    The car slowly started moving and the guy was terrified, too scared

    to think of jumping out and running.

    The guy saw that the car was slowly approaching a sharp curve, still

    too scared to jump out, he started to pray and begging for his life; he

    was sure the ghost car would go off the road and into the marsh and he would

    surely drown, when just before the curve, a hand appeared through the

    driver's window and turned the steering wheel, guiding the car safely around

    the bend.

    Paralyzed with fear, the guy watched the hand reappear every time

    they reached a curve.

    Finally the guy, scared to near death, had all he could take and

    Jumped out of the car and ran to town.

    Wet and in shock, he went into a cafe and, voice quivering, ordered

    a cup of hot coffee, black, then told everybody about his experience.

    A silence enveloped the cafe and everybody got goose bumps when they

    realized the guy was telling the truth and was not just some weirdo.

    About half an hour later two guys walked into the cafe and one says

    To the other: "Look Bubba, there's that idiot who rode in our car when we

    Were pushing it in the rain.

    My preference would be Flying Dutchman #5, as it could handle it if you needed some tighter turns---and going to a #7 or #9 if doing a lot of straighter cuts. Plywood does dull blades a bit faster though, no matter the blade brand choice. The best blade is kinda a broad question---every brand works...

    I totally agree with Dan (dgman). I prefer Flying Dutchmans for most things, but I know others who absolutely swear by other top brands, and almost everyone go thumbs down on generics after trying the name brands---and the price difference is next to nothing if you know where to buy. Some suppliers...

    Wow, that is a loaded question! You will get a lot of opinions, but the best answer is the ones that work for you. My suggestion is to order or buy several types and sizes and brands, and use what works for you. I would suggest you not buy the generic blades you find in local hardware stores. The top...
