Re: what are you making?

Canoe, I'll have to echo your preferences for hand sharpening and the use of hand tools with wood. No matter what, I've found that when woodworking, patience and gentle experimentation is the key to the best results. It also does wonders for your blood pressure. I recently sanded the finish off a bu...

I just finished reading "Two Tankers Down" by Robert Frump. a highly respected and nationally recognized maritime journalist. It's the story of the oil tankers SS Fort Mercer and SS Pendleton, and their sinking in a gale on the night of Feb. 18, 1952. This occurred in a full gale in near-blizzard co...

Canoe, thanks for posting that video. I get chills up and down my spine when I hear that song because of five magical years in Philadelphia, PA. The arena would be filled with fans, the lights would go out, the music would start, and a spotlight would bring into focus one aisleway into the arena. At...

FUCK. My problem is I don't get to dance when I want to. As an effort to be part of the 'in' crowd, I took ballroom dancing when I was 15 after school.

My dance partner is a Jo staff. I put some music on and just swing it. It's good range of motion exercise, and meditation for me. Of course I'm starting to feel some tennis elbow, but the green stuff eases the pain, and gets me in the mood. I've never used it for self-defense, and probably never wi...

I remember when Hulk Hogan used to tell all the little Hulksters to “say their prayers and take their vitamins”. When I heard that I’d respond to the TV , “Orals or injectables, Hulk?”
