    Haha, the one eyed painting went ok but it was a challenge for me not to make a mess out of it.:confused: No golf for me yet. Because of my lack of depth perception I might hurt somebody...like myself!:eek::D

    Good morning Guardians and all. Today I picked up my Ebony Jack Black SFO Lambfoot knife.:) I think I'll carry this one for awhile. Nice slim profile and I've got it good and sharp.:thumbsup:

    I am going to have to stop trying to balance knives on the edge of pans and bowls to take photos :rolleyes: My ebony '18 got well-dunked in the steaming pan of chilli I've got bubbling away on the stove, and it's full of firey Scotch Bonnets! :eek:

    There were none in the central region of the country where I grew up.
    I did a little search on google and it seems that there are a couple species, the Bolivian and Brazilian squirrel that may be found in the north area bordering those countries.

    I found out too that an invasive species from Asia, the Palla's squirrel was introduced in an area of the Buenos Aires province and it is causing some trouble as most invasive species do.

    Thanks GT :)

    Check the " Let's Kick Scoot" website/forum, lot's of info on scooters, I was very active on that forum a few years ago.

    One of the popular scooter for adults is the Xootr scooter.
    We have a couple of those .
    They are super fast. Some don't like that the wheels are very hard ( that's why they are fast ) and bounce and rattle a bit if on uneven pavement. If you are not careful a branch or a little hole could send you to floor in a nanosecond. On the other hand the softer pneumatic wheels can be much harder to get moving unless they are high pressure specialized tires

    That's why we always use helmets and gloves, knee pads are recommended as well.

    We also have a couple of Amish scooters , hand made in Pennsylvania by the Amish. They are much bigger and not that portable though.

    I think you could very easily double your walking speed and go for long distances with no much effort .... as long as the terrain is level and the pavement smooth.
    I switch feet every 5 kicks or so, it takes a while to get the hang of it ( my wife still struggles with it )
    Uphill is a no go on a scooter, too hard, might as well walk it.

    There are reviews of scooter's on the Let's Kick Scoot website.
    Check them out and pm me if you have any questions.

    Happy Monday Guardians :)

    Is that compressed air in a spray can? Where did you get that?

    Pound Shop! :D And a can lasts ages! :cool: It's great for blowing the gunk out of AW knives :eek: Flood the joint with oil, blow out the joint, keep repeating until the crud stops coming out ;) :thumbsup:

    I have heard of it, and using it for cleaning the gunk out of knives, will have to track some down. Now, one good turn deserves another, instead of using oil to flush out your knife joints when gunked up, get yourself and spray can of degreaser, it works a treat. Cover the scales with a rag, spray the degreaser into the joint, leave a few minutes then blow out all the gunk with your air, might take a couple of goes, but the degreaser actually dissolves all the gunk. Don't say i don't do anything for you.o_Oo_Oo_O:thumbsup:;)

    It's available everywhere. I used degreaser before oil and air, and sometimes still use it on old knives, where the grease has set, but the stuff in the knives from Wright's is just polishing paste and other crud, and I'd rather use something food-safe, and that doesn't smell so much :thumbsup:

    Not so much! :D ;) :thumbsup:

    Maybe you should use some baking soda to neutralize the acid.
    They sell it here in office supply stores and anywhere computer accessories are sold. Very useful for clearing dust off electronics.
    Also for cat training. She hates the sound of the canned air, and will now stop playing with the cables behind the computer when I just reach for the can.

    Thanks for that, we have been in lockdown so could not get out and they won't ship it in the mail. But now i know where to get some. You take care and look after yourself. Today we reached a mile stone, they sent the last person home from hospital who had covid, and we have not had a positive case for over 3 weeks, so unofficially we are covid free-for the moment, we have not been in this position for 10 months.
