My compliments to PhotoRuss.

Fact one the thread began with a title indicating it was a problem but all in good humor. Fact two, it did address an issue that does on occasion happen to a lot of people (maybe some unwilling to speak of it). Fact three, there is no indication of wanting to avoid work, rather a need to solve a problem that was confounding so that more and better work could be done. Fact four, there was follow up and conversation from the OP during the thread letting us know if in fact we were helping and it was taken in good humor. Fact five, a resolution to the problem was posted along with a thank you.

I wish more threads and OP's could be this thorough and enjoyable.

What I'd written is that I like things that _should_ be easy to be easy, not that I like things easy in general (although that's not bad either There's a difference.

Paper plates and plastic utensils are wasteful and ecologically unfriendly (less so when recycled). Using them is easy, but it shouldn't be! Reusing and recycling is harder than tossing away paper plates and plastic forks, but it's the right thing to do, IMHO.

I have a travel coffee mug that I carry in my daypack. I've used it at coffee shops hundreds of times. Not only is reusing things the most eco-friendly thing to do, but the 10 to 25 cent discount I get at coffee shops around here for bringing my own cup has added up to something more than a little chump change. It would be easier _for me_ just to use the paper cups and plastic lids provided at the coffee shop, but it would be a great deal more wasteful making things more difficult for our planet and it's inhabitants in the long run.

Now, back to my Lazyboy _easy_ chair for some easy livin

Thank you for your kind words. I try to be a good samaritan.

I asked him if he asked someone if they had them he said " no I wasn't going to make a fool of myself". I had to explain to him it was a bit used to drill glass!

This is the problem with Corelle Ware. It last way to long. My DW needs change quite often, (surprised I am still here, LOL) . We use hand made pottery for our dishes, we paid a lot of money for this dinnerware when we had it at the S&B so why not use it.
