    Yeah I was wrong about calf rennet, I just read that there are some alternatives which are rather widely used to make cheese.

    Nothing wrong with eating cheese. That's just crazy.

    I was out to dinner with some Koreans and they got my colleague to eat a live baby octopus, and that baby's tentacles were apparently sucking his throat. He had a very hard time with it.

    More than 20 years ago, I ate a live baby eel as a special delicacy as the guest of honor at a Korean wedding reception. Chew hard and chew fast and have the soju at the ready to wash that bad boy down.

    Oh, and I was not friends with Tony like some of you, but I met him at a few shows and had some pleasant conversations with him. Got pulled for a couple of his knives. In addition to being an important figure in the knife making world, he always struck me as a real good guy and down to earth, too, although he would have had every reason to have a huge ego based on his accomplishments. RIP. :(

    Then toss that ice and add some olives or a lemon twist.

    Or glance at the vermouth bottle as you pour the gin. Somebody famous said that...Churchill maybe?

    EDIT* Churchhill: "Glance at the vermouth bottle briefly while pouring the juniper distillate freely."

    I feel like about the only thing that would be more extra than a Tony Bose Oyster Knife would be a Carothers Performance Knives Oyster Knife.

    I have a friend, a young guy, former Marine Captain, who was having serious cholesterol problems. His doctor was considering prescribing medication. So recently he went back to the doctor with his blood work and the doctor notes than his cholesterol had gone down 50 points. The doctor asked him if he had been doing anything different. He said, no. Nothing at all. The doctor asked him if he ate meat and my friend answered that he ate meat at least three times a week. What kind of meat? My friend: Well, I shot a moose earlier this year and that’s what I’ve been eating. That’s it, said the good doc.

    @Nathan the Machinist I think you enjoy cigars. Which is your favourite and what cutter do you use? Sign me up for a Carothers cutter if that ever came to be. I'm in the market for a cutter as I have been using a punch for the longest time and now believe I'm missing out.

    Nothing but the good stuff!

    I thought when it was only 3 times a week that you just say no, like when they ask if you drink alcohol :)

    A glass of red wine with your dinner and some green roasted peanuts as a snack, will help lower your cholesterol significantly.
