How’s your day going?

Lol well serves you right :P

I've been tearing my hair out with the way Sacred 2's been acting tonight. The amount of times I've had to Alt-Tab to get my screen unfrozen... And I've even had to relog into my Windows account three times because the Alt-Tab trick did not work. Aargh :B6nFRAh:

I've got something slightly comical. I was over at a friend's house, the news was on the tv. They censored out someone's last name, my friend's kid (maybe like 8 or 9) heard that, and said "whoa, Ryan, that girl's name is bad words!" I laughed and explained why the news does that some times. The boy said "oh.... I wish my name was bad words." I found that funny; what profanity does a child that age know? I made the mistake of asking what he'd like his name to be; he uttered a sequence of words, some of which I'm going to have to look up on urban dictionary since they're new to me. But I learned a lesson about asking a child about their vocabulary. 

Kids LOVE high tension words! Its a way of drawing focus to what the're doing... as soon as a kid learns the word poor or anything like that... he's nigh unstoppable

Mathematics can stop anything.

Parents learn early to do the : 'I'll count till 3 and if....'

I never had to count to three.

Another parents trick:

Don, Donald, Donald John, Mister Donald John Trump... The longer the name used by the parents the more angry the parents are and kids learn early to avoid their second pre-name... Works at least in Germany ;)

 

Something very nice:

Our fire department got a postcard from Berlin. A girl did a thankyou because a former member of our youth firefighters did a revive of her dad. She said he said that he learned it at our youth firefighters ten years ago.

We have a wall with thankyou's at the department. But all were for our active members. This is the first for a former...

My day was good. had another 12 hour shift at work, but at least felt accomplished...

 

All my knives that I use are Victorinox knives. They do make EXCELLENT kitchen knives.

The three that I use the most are like these 3, Chefs knife, serrated/bread knife, serrated pairing knife.

The bread knife should be just as big as you need it.

But we have sixpounders oval shaped farmer breads with a hard crust, self made at local baking house. They need a beast of a bread knife. 13inch long blade, the handle slightly turned upward to prevent fingers hitting the cutting board....

The steel is not for machine cleaning however. It is probably a once in a lifetime buy. Something like this:

Since I have to butcher wild game a lot another working horse is a good boning knife. Handle made from olive wood which is slow growing and anti-bacterial, because again no machine cleaning.

And again for personal needs having fish ponds: a good fillet knife for fish. A flexible blade to allow fine cuts along the backbone of fish.

The difference between boning and fillet knife:

Got back home after spending the weekend away in a hotel. Was lovely with nice weather, nice food, a nice stay... What else could we ask for? Well maybe no Covid, but that's a given these days... 

And I just finished up putting a set of spacers on the front and rear axles of my "new" car. Now the wheels are almost flush with the fenders, giving it a wider stance. I'll be taking it into a shop on wednesday to get a set of lowering springs fitted. I'm getting excited :yay:

awwww... love this weekend get away Timo... a hotel for the weekend...  New sights, smells and sounds are perfect for battery re energizing.  No matter what, I always try to book some time off with the family just to have a different environment and restore my internal brain's "wiring" 

what a adorable sentiment for you both ! :heart:

And that angle reminds me of our cars in the driveway with my dad ALWAYS at work on the cars after he finished work

@gogoblender the thing is, we weren't even that far away from home at all. We just felt like getting out of the house, away from distractions, and celebrate being together for almost 14 years now (21st is our actual "anniversary"). Worked out just fine :D

Congratulations Timo!! I always remember your posts as celebratory with your other half ... and I’ve always thought that getting away to a gem  close by to where we live is always a smart and imaginative way of giving ourselves a much-needed vacation. 
You build in both the convenience and the escape all at once

Lowering springs :)

I like these roads. None of my daughters ever had a friend with a sportscar .... :)

There was even a market for this build in series, before everyone bought an SUV.

Ahhh the Golf Country Syncro, a classic :resp:

But you're right @chattius, I have absolutely no need for an offroad capable car. Plus the car I drive now has... interesting looks, I will post a before and after when it's done, you'll understand what I mean by interesting. My car is FWD so there's not that much offroad capability there anyway, but especially the rear sits quite high. The lowering springs will make it look more like a regular car, and even out the back - which will drop about 1cm more.

Interesting choice of color on the provided picture of Golf by the way, very similar to mine (which somehow always ends up on the blue side in pictures).
