    No the straps are not Japanese. They would have used leather as BAR said or canvas for the tropical straps and holsters.

    In the past, tooth paste used to contain pumice. I don't think it does now. The pumice is used more for cleaning teeth today in dentists offices. Tooth pastes are now aimed at making teeth whiter...

    As Ed said its great fertilizer and that is just what it is. There is no way to tell just what powder it is by looking at it. The grass or garden is a fine place for it. Bulk powder like this hasn't...

    Yup your right Inland. I may have just got mad listening to a Bloombutts ad where he lies about himself and the President at the time I posted. So not thinking right. Sorry about that Chief.
