It's a 150 mm Japanese carbon steel petty knife. So far it's been used for vegetable prep. Very nice and really sharp. Going to have to learn how to sharpen it.


Peanut,
Just get one of those knife sharpening sets. Here is a link to the place I got mine from that shows you what they are. https://www.chefsarmoury.com/collection ... stone-sets
You just then follow the instructions, or go to you tube to see how to do it. My only advice is be a little careful with your fingers as the stones can remove your finger prints. I could not use touch on my iPhone as I removed my fingerprints when I first started.

So I am a high school math teacher and two years ago I was moved to a classroom down in the basement of my building—on a positive, it is a nice, large room and we are off the beaten path so administrators don’t bother you much down there. No windows down there and definitely not great cell service, so I decided to make it a little homey and personable. I came across a few signs that were $5 or less so not a big investment and my obsession began. :lol: Today I hung up signs #31 and #32. I also am cheap so I have only bought 8 of them up there, the rest I made by painting stretched canvases and doing the lettering using different fonts I look up, etc. I will be out and about or on the internet and come across a great sign or saying and I take a picture (because my brain is not what it used to be!) and then I get around to making a bunch of signs when I have the energy/ambition to get crafty. It really has become my pride and joy at work and the kids enjoy reading them as do my co-workers when they have to trek down to the basement for something. LOL

I know I said this before, but have to say again how much I LOVE reading through this thread and all of the cool pics and conversations you all so graciously share—THANK YOU!

BS, that Christmas flower was just beautiful, so perfect! I am not one to have a green thumb or really do much in the plant department, but I admire those who do! My neighbors across the street are amazing with their flowers so I am so lucky to live across from them and admire their talents. I do water the plants for them when they are away. And every year they make me a cool desk calendar with pictures of their various flowers for each month—it’s very impressive and so sweet of them!

Peanut, I really enjoyed your picture story of your move to TX with your vacation home in CA. I was like mob wondering how your holiday pics were in CA, but you list the capital of TX as your home place. I especially loved the pup pics! :D

Stu, wow that that squirrel went right up and sat on your son’s leg! We have our fair share of squirrels over here, but I haven’t ever seen one just go right up like that. I guess those NY ones are more civilized! By the way, would that be the Stu who inspired your name? :wink: And I have to say I am jealous that his school trip crossed the pond! Damn, I went to school in Pittsburgh and I don’t know that we ever took a school trip out of the state—well, I was in the marching band so we did do band trips on coach buses, but truly there was never an opportunity to travel out of the country (of course that was 30 years ago, I guess there are more trips abroad these days).

Happy New Year to everyone! I must admit, when I put the date on the board today I slipped and wrote 2018, but I at least caught myself!

Hi Soccermom ,
I love it . What a creative solution . I love the one about cancelling subscription to someone’s issues . I remember saying to my GP that I sometimes felt as people popped over dropped there issues and headed out the door leaving me burdened . He looked up at me and said “ I am having the same issues “ we both burst out laughing as I am sure he spends his days doing just that .
The trip to New York was actually a Maths trip . Apparently there is a Maths museum!! Ha . The head of department has worked for about thirty years without one trip in the same school . So she made it a good one . I only said yes as I thought he would not get picked . But he is well behaved and got picked . My husband made it worse by sending me a link to his plane half way over the Atlantic. However it was a great trip . He is my baby !! Stu is my older son .
They both do well in Maths , on the other hand I sit at parents night and nod enthusiastically :D
Thanks for sharing . We sat and read them all last night .

So my favourite Soccermomism is "If plan A doesn't work there are 25 other letters in the alphabet".
Or duct tape.

I too am loving all the pictures and life stories that everyone is sharing.

My amaryllis has just barely started opening.....I'm always late to the party ;)

I have been wanting to learn how to put images in posts for a long time and finally got around to reading the instructions on page 1 of this thread. I needed to find an image and the one most handy on my computer was this!

You might be wondering why I have such a diagram. A Title IX case of mine (I represent a John Doe in a false sexual assault allegation case at a very prestigious college) will likely be going to trial this spring or summer. I wanted to find a diagram that might help the jury!

After I set up the above comments, I tried to submit this reply but I got the error: It was not possible to determine the dimensions of the image. Please verify that the URL you entered is correct. I could not post the reply without editing the [/img] command, but it had been correctly set up.

Weird.

mmm ok mpbser I'll step up.
If I were a lawyer representing someone accused of sexual assault I don't think I would be posting the imgur link that you have in your post in this thread.

My previous comment still stands though, I'm loving the pictures and life stories here.

mpbser, I am not sure what part of my post you can't comprehend. There is nothing catty about it.
The link you provided contains an image that is in violation of the code of conduct for this forum and is, as I said, not something I would post if I were representing someone accused of sexual assault.
Since you prefer not to acknowledge this I will leave it to the moderators to deal with.
It is a shame that this thread, created to honour and remember someone who is no longer with us, has been infiltrated with this discussion.

Now that photo got my attention, pets. No one loves them more than the owner.
Here is a photo of my cat doing what he does best and sleep.

I tend to think that whilst I don't post as much as I did, that when I posted I shared my life, what was happening, and tried to enjoy myself a bit. If people who read the threads wanted to join in great, if they didn't like my threads they could always choose not to read them.

I like this thread, and I'm sure that there are a lot of others that read it from time to time.
