    I'm thrilled you like it, John! But, who are you calling off-topic? ;)

    That question, and the realization that a proper lambsfoot must have positive values for both a and b in its spine equation in that graph, is the mathematical basis for this easy do-it-yourself check for whether your straight edge blade is a lambsfoot.

    1. Place the blade, with the tip pointing to the left, on the right edge of a piece of paper.
    2. Trace the outline of the blade.
    3. Using a ruler, extend the edge line and the spine line towards the left edge of the paper.
    4. If the lines noticeably converge, it's a lambsfoot. If they don't, it's not.

    See: it's lambsfoot science! :D

    @JohnDF - What the heck is a "Distributive Property" and I gotta say, I don't see any "expression" in that question - not even a frown.

    @Jack Black - That reminds me of a Bridie Beef Pie we used to get when I was stationed in Scotland. I believe they originated in Forfar, Scotland which was just a few miles from Edzell Base where I was stationed.
    This may be of interest Ed ;) :thumbsup:

    Thanks @Jack Black. I saved the reference and will have to look iinto it.

    The pace here, often is like F1’s(My current favorite sport). Easy to miss responses. Here’s a couple I found:

    @Jack Black - You had asked about the Ti guitar. It was from a maker(not Vox), whose name escapes me. Sorry about that. Splendid food shots.

    @5K Qs - Thank you for the nice words about the Dami Lamb. Your AC Lamb Image was very Heroic.
    Sorry about the tree incident. Congratulations again on the 1500 page Lamb Win, as well as your generous heart.

    @mitch4ging - Great look at your Ebony Lamb, Dennis. Best wishes for your continued recovery.

    @WhittlinAway - Brilliant explanation of what is a Lambsfoot, Greg.

    @ET al - Fabulous collection of images from everyone.

    Good Morning Guardians

    :D :thumbsup:

    Thank you, Harvey. It was all inspired by @JohnDF and his lambsfoot strategically positioned above an algebra question. My inner geek couldn't resist riffing on it. :)

    I think it means dividing belongings upon divorce. I heard Texas is a Distributive Property state.

    Thanks, Jack. They all did very well and made me proud. :) :thumbsup:

    Oh, I definitely started it. :(
    But then you respond to me, and then I respond back to you, and then somebody else gets involves, then some else responds to them, and everything then grows exponentially, and pretty soon Jack is pulling his hair out. Lol :D

    Lastly, the answer to your system seems to be (15,3), although it's hard to see the intersection points. ;)

    @5K Qs Just a little help with the instant gravy, my mother used it when she was short of time. Instead of just adding water, cook it in a small saucepan on a low heat, with a bit of water, add some other flavoring, tomato sauce{ketchup}, dash of soy sauce, black sauce{worstershire sauce} or any flavoring you like. If it seems a bit thick add a little bit more water, just keep stirring till it warms and thickens up. Tastes really good, and leftover gravy can be kept in the fridge in a container for future use. Just use any flavoring that suits your taste.:thumbsup:

    Catch up with everyone tomorrow :thumbsup:
