My favorite mutated musician plays a portable carillon (ok, so it weighs 8,000 lbs). He hauls it around the country behind an old Grady White Super C RV. For those of you who are familiar with Valley Forge, this guy used to play the carillon there - studied the carillon in France and the last I knew, he is on the only master carillonneur in the US.

Down here we use artificial bait for catching those fish we do fry on occasions. No sense wasting good food.
Soy sauce filled with wasabi only hides the flavor of fresh fish. Only a skoshi bit of either should be applied to sashimi. Adding wasabi to soy sauce for sashimi is fine. If your sashimi needs a good taste put on it, it might not be good fish.

With sushi there is a skoshi bit of wasabi between the rice and the fish. A skoshi bit of soy sauce on the fish side of sushi is fine. But not too much. The chef has applied the right amount of wasabi to the sushi so there is really no need to add any to the soy sauce. You can always tell a novice by the amount of rice in their soy sauce.

Liking the taste of wasabi hot soy sauce - is one thing. Paying good money to mask the flavor of high quality, sashimi grade fish is another.

If you don't like the taste of fresh, raw fish - pour some wasabi laden soy sauce on something you do like. JMHO - YMMV - and I sure as heck don't want to get into another discussion of who eats what and how. I do have the above on good authority though. While you can not tell it to look at me now, when I took Aikido as a kid - my name was Skosh.

Well hey, umm, er, I mean, oh gosh, gee whillikers! Thenkyew!! Now that was a surprise!

It's been a grand day so far, and a few hours left to play. It's wonderful to have friends near and far, some whose faces I know and others whose words I know. That is the best kind of gift.

You don't hafta dust yer friends. Not most of them, at any rate.

Cheers!
Sue

Words flow from your keyboard as wisdom from he who knows. Living in Japan for a couple years I can concur with the wisdom and profound insight carefully articulated for those of us that can benefit.

Especially when someone asks me if I know Japanese. "Just a skoshi bit!" Most of us might have been called Skosh at some period in our lives, eh? Me, it's been a long time ago! Cheers! And Jaa mata!

Maxwell Smart and Dick Tracy were just men ahead of their time. They knew we'd have cell phones LONG before they were invented. And what about Star Trek's use of what we now call an iPad?

I tend to keep everything, but had a moment of weakness when I had the whole house painted.
Don't feel bad, shipped off 25lbs of old ISA motherboards and expansion cards to the recycler for disposal. Surprised I got a $25.00 check in the mail two weeks later for my share of the recovered metals.

Sorry for the rant it just gets under my skin.

I have had over 100 pit bulls in my life. a lot of them I saved from pit fighting rings. and all of them but one went to good homes some with kids. and never had a problem. and the one was so sick we kep him for years till he died. and I wish this camp ground no ill will. we will teach them the law with out a lot of bad words or the lawyer. so next time they will not ask.
Blame the media, they do tend to focus on pit bull incidents, and once they have their teeth into one they don't want to let it go...

So a ponderance comes to mind, why is it they ship the major piece separately from the minor pieces but all the pieces should be together so you can do the proper install, a curious mind wishes to know.

Cheers !!!
Might be dropped shipped (as opposed to drop kicked) from different manufactures.

I'm late to the party as usual. I had a PT appt in town, but had to take my friend's Ford Explorer as there was snow on their very steep driveway. That SUV has more touch screens, gadgets and gizmos on it than I've ever seen. They're going to make it so us old fogey s won't be able to drive new cars if this keeps up.
