    Not to even mention that Bada-Bing was also the name of that seedy adult entertainment joint which Silvio ran where they all used to hang out at ;)

    Paulie was just the BEST when it came to anecdotes. If you ever get a chance revisit his rant during one of their get-togethers when he was cautioning against tying up one's she laces after visiting the bathroom before sitting down to eat at the table. Cracks me up every time when I remember that one (don't recall which season). CLASSIC! :D

    I have recently learned that not only do they broadcast thanksgiving day parades, there are people who watch these broadcasts. There are people watching a parade on TV right now. I can't relate...

    They use really heavy ropes @Jo the Machinist ... You are not allowed to chop them. That's considered bad form. Sorry.

    Happy Thanksgiving!
    Just a normal working day here which is great as the delivery driver came!
    After 31 days of anxiety, hundreds of tracking page refreshes and a mystery two week disappearance in Miami my gang of knives that Jo has graciously been holding for me finally arrived.
    It's my first FK (UFK). I can see why everyone likes them so much!
    The UF is my favourite CPK model though. L-R: UFK unbuffed OD, DEF Ebonite (loving Ebonite!), DEF Acid, Sharpened tip acid and AEBL ebonite.
    Thank you so much CPK!
    I hope you all have a great day!

    The police and bomb squad actually raided a house close to me the other day as an occupant had googled how to make fireworks.

    Thank you!. I definitely have more grey hairs now:)

    The clock (well you know, the virtual type) stroke Midnight last night which meant Black Friday so what did I do? Well naturally I went knife shopping, online :D

    My intention is to improve on my kitchen knife game (did I say that I'm quite cheap apart from my beloved CPKs and my folders, when it comes to spending on pointed steels?) so I found a couple of Shun Premier pieces at reasonably good price on Cutlery & More. I know that there are far more superior Japanese and Asian style knives out there in super-blue steel even challenging some CPKs in terms of pricing, but I ain't paying that much for something that others in this household can and will fudge up if left unsupervised!

    ETA: Oh, I went with a 7" santoku vs an 8" chef type knife because when it comes to the kitchen and veggies (I'm eschewing meats as I get older), I actually prefer sheepfoot to stabbies!
