Bowclamp Modern technology used to realize an age-old idea: a perfect bow shaped arc. The Bowclamp's patented design - made possible only with the help of computerized, numerically-controlled cutting technology (CNC) - allows for equal clamping pressure along the entire length of the glue line... with only one clamp at each end!

Rutager's right... the cheese ain't half bad.

Just a quick update: I called Craig directly instead of going thru Randy; the price was substantially cheaper. I don't doubt that having Randy involved would have brought me a great deal of joy, but a man has only so much cash and I would have felt guilty accepting cheese from my fellow citizens.

In the end, I ordered 4 one footers and 4 two footers, really should have done this sooner if only Craig would have let me!!!

Best,
Rutager

Well, the kids are inconsolable. The girls are playing some Princess thing on the Wii to try to distract them from the knowledge that it's just this kind of thing that makes organized crime such a hard gig.
But that's ok.
I only ask that when you receive your new Bowclamps you take a black marker and adorn one of them with "Government Cheese" as a reminder of the fate you have bestowed on the young ones.
Actually, the job I'm on this week I might actually make a buck on. We cool ;-)

I actually got paid for a job this weekend. I think it worked out to about $5 per hour. But it's money...

Okami,

To take that analogy another step and to make it worse, you also have to pay the mortgage, buy the griddle, stock the ingredients and pay the other bills!

That's why I like working for people I know; they expect to pay almost nothing and give themselves a lifetime warranty!

Try working for relatives - I have been a "volunteer" cook at the family restaurant and I get paid with Bud Light, Smoked Pork Ribs & Prime Rib on work nights and a bonus fried chicken buffet on Sunday at noon. I do the pork ribs on my Traeger and they are amaaaazing. Maybe it's not so bad after all....

Around here we work for eggs.



That's 100 super-jumbos. Most are double yolks. My wood chips go to a local farm co-op for use in lining the cattle stalls. Friends get eggs, neighbors get eggs... This week I made deviled eggs, pickled eggs (Mmm... try 'em with beer ) Last week I discovered Shakshuka.

That's a store bought egg on the left.

Wow! Yum!

How's your cholesterol?

Curried eggs on toast is one of my all-time favorite comfort foods. Great for breakfast.

Bob Swenson started a thread here about a million years ago, looking for egg recipes. I'm sure it wouldn't be hard to find.
