    It takes a while to develop both an ear and a tongue for new languages. Even in our first language, which for most of us is English, there are so many dialects and regional accents. I know when I go to place like North Central Texas, Louisiana and Ontario, everyone knows right away that I’m a...

    I spent the day crawling around in a hot dusty and smelly attic rewiring all the lights in my tool shed. I know have all LED lighting in my shed. It has been a long time coming. My fluorescents were dying and I was down to not enough light, and the LED fixtures are only marginally more money...

    A couple bargain hones

    When honing with slates, I often like to used a very light slurry and dilute to water. Some of the slates I have are very slow and require a lot of laps compared to synthetics. I prefer to not go too high in the synthetics before going to a natural. An 8 or 10K is usually as far as I go. I...

    A couple bargain hones

    A couple of thoughts. They could be any slate. There is tons of slate all over the world. At around an 8K level I would suspect not a thuri. Hanging hair tests are a difficult one because we all have different hair, and it changes as we age. With my hair it is very difficult to get a good...

    I am not a fan of pineapple on pizza. I do like pineapple I just don’t think it fits there, kind of like broccoli in an omelet. It just does not fit. Now that you mention back bacon, I’m not sure why it’s back bacon because it is in no way shape or form bacon. Small pieces of actual real...

    Short naps are grand. Ten to twenty minute is perfect. When I was working the commercial boats I had that worked out like an art form. I could stop and nap almost anywhere. Oddly enough when I used to go to the laundry mat the cycle time from start to add rinse agent was twenty minutes. I...

    Well in Bruno’s case where he is able to mitigate his high blood pressure it likely adds more quality to the end of his life and potentially quite a few years. Unchecked high blood pressure or prolonged high blood pressure can get your medical pulled in my line of work and I expect many others...

    For the purpose of great sleep patterns, I typically only ever have two cups of coffee in the morning. My job costs me a lot of nights sleeps randomly and I like to conserve as many great sleeps as I can.

    I too am a universal donor and they don’t want mine either. It makes no sense to me. I can’t get past the questions. It has been a long time and I don’t remember why they flunk me out, but I too got tired of getting turned down.

    My little "shop" and a few toys from it

    Nice rescue. I often learn a lot from things that don’t completely work. I’m envious of your tinkering. I’ll be home soon enough.

    In part due to my job, and in part because of my doctors schedule, it takes me a long time to deal with medical stuff. Last December I slipped on the dock and got a hernia. At first I thought it was a pulled muscle and it would pass. About mid January I mentioned that ever since, every time I...

    Gouges

    Well there is that, however if they are in rough shape and need serious work, it’s a poor place to start learning. If you have access to places to get it done I think it is a sensible way to start, get the maintenance figured out. Over time you are certainly going to ding one, at least once...

    The gouges you can maintain on the buffer once you have them sharpened. The V gouges you will need a block for.

    I am a new licensed barber

    Hello, welcome to the workshop. I think that as an up coming barber, you are going to be restricted to disposable edge razors, also know as shavettes. I think the feather brand is favoured by many. I think if you explore the market place and see what is available for preshave, brushes, soaps...

    True story, OPEC controls the world oils prices. However it doesn’t mean we should buy from them and sell our oil to China and other countries. It’s a giant source of political discussion here in Canada. If you want to get into a fight, walk into an Alberta bar and say “we don’t need...

    For reasons I do not understand, Alberta where most of the oil is produced can’t get it out of the country fast enough. They whine constantly about all the good paying jobs they create for Canadians in the oil exploration and extraction sector, and how they feel unsupported by the rest of...
