A HOT Collectable…

No. 1
Once sold in penny gumball machines 50 some odd years ago, these vintage MINI-working lighters are now a collector’s item. Wish I would have kept mine…..

With This Ring…..

No. 1
Antique Pistol Spy Gun
Produced in 1800, this antique French pistol spy gun is a creative example of a MANccessory.  This intricate, yet impractical 5-shot working revolver was once one of the smallest killing devices ever created.

No. 2
It is believed that if the finger mounted firearm were fired, the smoke, flames, and noise would be significant.  The muzzle velocity would be so loud that the powder burn would be worse than the bullet. 
No. 3
Even though it isn’t classified as the most efficient protective firearm, its creative craftsmanship certainly presents itself as an exceptional MANccessory.

Throughout time, the well dressed man has always known when to accessorize and when not to.  One simple rule of good taste is to remember that less is always more.  Today’s designers are mixing it up with every masculine concept imaginable.  I’ve picked out a few Reynolds Still favorites that make a statement “with this ring.”

No. 4
Concrete and stainless steel ring by 22design. 

No. 5
Stainless steel ring with screws by Rochet Bijoux Siderale.

No. 6
Stainless steel and black rubber square ring by Veto.

No. 7
Titanium and carbon fiber ring by ZoeandDoyle on Etsy.

No. 8
Zebra wood and stainless steel ring by Tivi.

Football, Beer and Hoagies...

No. 1
I’ve become addicted to tailgating and the incredible eats that are created.  With the ultimate football game just days away, I thought I better give you guys something to savor with a nice cold beer and a Super Bowl game……
No. 2
Hoagie Dip


• 1 medium onion
• 1/2 cup pickled mild banana peppers
• 1/2 head iceberg lettuce
• 1 large tomato, halved and seeded
• 1/4 pound deli-sliced genoa salami
• 1/4 pound deli-sliced ham
• 1/4 pound deli-sliced prosciutto
• 1/4 pound deli-sliced roast turkey
• 1/4 pound deli-sliced provolone cheese
• 1/2 cup mayonnaise
• 1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
• 1 teaspoon dried oregano
• 1 1/2 teaspoons dried basil
• 1/4 teaspoon red pepper flakes
• 1 10-to-12-inch round loaf Italian bread or Sourdough
• 8 hoagie rolls, cut into pieces, for dipping


Chop the onion, lettuce and tomato into bite-size pieces. Dice the meats and cheese.

Combine the chopped vegetables, meats, and cheese in a large bowl. Add the mayonnaise, olive oil, oregano, basil, and red pepper flakes stirring until everything is mixed thoroughly and tasty.  Refrigerate until ready to serve.

Carve out the center of the bread loaf to make a bowl (don't cut through the bottom) and cut the scraps into bite-size pieces. Serve the hoagie dip in the bread bowl, with the extra bread and hoagie rolls to scoop it up.


Best regards,
