I don't take many images relevant to this thread, so, anyone care to guess what kind of cheese this is? or what kind of apple that is? I'd award a prize if I had one lying around, but I don't.



I mean really, how long can you guys go without thinking about food?

I have no idea about the variety of hard cheese or iFruit but I sure do have my eye on that knife.

Well we have a new kitchen sink and faucet set that needs an install.
No way can I get down under there anymore.

A really nice looking shop Rupert, a bit too organized for my tastes, but very nice!

Yep, I hear you! I can still do it but it hurts pretty bad. If I was closer, I'd do it for you at no charge .....except a box of Velveeta!

It gets pretty sloppy in there quickly . Small shops are hard to keep clean and orderly, just not enough room for everything.

Regards!

Because of the potential for accidents with sharp and powered items, we upgraded our med kit to this:

When a saw is turned on, it is time to get deadly serious......
Coworker (and us) had a scare with a 12" compound miter saw. I had it set up with a 100 tooth Alumi-cut carbide blade for cutting aluminum.
She went to cut some stainless tubing with it and ended up sending most of the teeth ricocheting of the steel beams in the ceiling of the shop.

A very wise move to have the necessary meds on hand. I once busted my head open and we were miles away from help. I was bleeding profusely and had to use my T-shirt to wrap around my head....and since I had been under a house, it was filthy. I had a nice first aid kit but my helper had cleaned my truck and put it in the shop for unknown reasons? Another handy necessity ...a good fire extinguisher.

Seen that happen before too. Those teeth can go right through your skull!

Worst I have ever seen work accident. A guy at a sprocket plant I worked at briefly in my younger years was turning a sprocket on a high speed lathe. It came out and hit him dead center of his forehead.....half in..half out. Very little blood and he was still upright and conscious, but he damn near died when they removed it in surgery.

Gotta be careful out there! Accidents are lurking as certain as squirrels in a pecan forest.

Regards!

You can tell what type of apple it is? Types we have in the stores here, Macintosh, Empire, Spartan, Gala, Russet, Granny Smith. That gives you a one in six chance even if you know nothing.. As for the cheese, come on, we live in Canada...
