    I hear that the Mandarin translation is difficult. I would avoid Chinese characters.

    I don't do Chinese lettering tattoos anymore.  I got one on my upper arm that was supposed to say "Born To Ride", but after I got it, a Chinese friend of mine said it reads "Beef With Broccoli".   :((

    Me too! Except in my case, I just got a number and a picture from the lunch specials menu.

    When I ask where, I don't mean Houston area but where on Gary is the tattoo? I want one as well and would better if we got them alike.
    Mickey,
    I don't think the location would work for you.  For you, maybe the letters "MG".  On mine, I want it to say "Mangrates", but when I get excited, I want it to read "Mangrates, the best darned cast iron grid in the United States".  
    Reminds me of the MIT tattoo joke ;)
    How about the tattoo that BB King's wife got when he was out on the road traveling?

    She got a  B  done on each butt cheek.

    Upon Mr. King's return, she dropped trou and bent over to show off the new ink.

    When she asked BB if he liked it.....he replied...."that's Mangrate baby, but who the hell is BoB??

    "@Gezr I would stay away from ANY brush like that after reading all the people who get that wire in their stomachs and end up in the ER. Not saying Mangrate's brush would do that, but others do. I do not use any wire brush anymore.

    Thanks for the heads-up Mickey, I hadn't heard that before. Just thinking about it makes my fillings jangle.

    If you don't think too good, don't think too much.

    It's going to have to go on the bicep. The tramp stamp area is already covered up with a giant pic of this:

    Grace Young.  I'd know her anywhere.

    EDIT:  Well, duh.  It had her name in the filename.  But, I wrote it before I saw it.

    You should know her. It's your lower back tattoo. It would be weird to put someone you didn't know on there.....like my dale Jr lower back tat. Everyone knows junior. That's what makes it cool.

    CT, that gives a new meaning to "the breath of the wok".

  • I already have one on my lower back.  But, I'm trying to have it taken off.  I asked the dumb **** to put Bar-B-Que-er on my back, and he put Bar-B-Queer.  Everybody laughs at me when I take my shirt off.

    I really wish this video would embed but it's definitely worth a watch. One of my all time faves

    You can get your daily dose from him here.  

    Also, I think Mike McCarthy meant mangrate instead of manhole.


    Dude- that is funny right there.

    Got here today to let people use at the Salado EggFest March 16th and then give away. This package was heavy. Had 4 4X15 grates and a brush in it. Told VI I would send him two to try out and bring back to the Fest in March Photobucket Pictures, Images and Photos Photobucket Pictures, Images and Photos
    @Mickey, Wow, that is a really nice setup, I hope these get used and abused, as they only get better with use. I hope VI's pics are Grate, I also understand they will be coming out with a 1/2 MOON :)
    VI, Hope you can do some Checkered marks and also the Diamond pattern.
    Cheers...

    @Mickey I'm wondering why they can't begin to use them now? They can get familiar with them and start posting reviews and most importantly, pics. My .02

    Travis is at the beach and hot tubbing with his uncle in Ca till first week of Feb. CenTex will come thru Salado Tue of next week. Then they will be out. VI is like me in that CI is just not important.

    How do I create an @ member link like above?

  • GriffinGriffin Posts: 6,697
    Type @ and then the person's name. No space between.

    Griffin's Grub or you can find me on Facebook

    Sometimes you have to add a _ if there is a space in their name.

    Grif, I tried to @ CT on a thread the other day, but it only highlighted the "The" in his name, with or with out the underscore. Like this @The Cen-Tex Smoker or @The_Cen-Tex_Smoker. 

    Thoughts?

  • billyraybillyray Posts: 1,116

    @Eggcelsior After typing @, highlight and control c the whole name, then control v it next to the @ with no space. Like this @The Cen-Tex Smoker

  • I found the one way to do it where nobody can @ me. 

    It has never worked. If anyone can figure it out, let me know

  • MickeyMickey Posts: 15,797
    I just type the @ and copy (rolling over name) and paste.

    @Mickey, Is there anyone in Salado or the surrounding areas that wanna take the Mangrates for a test run now that you have them in your hands?
