Now someone is telling me peanut butter is bad for my heart. Well I was so proud of switching from butter to peanut butter…and I saw on the news coffee is good for me this week. I guess I just can’t trust what i hear. I was looking at one of those woodworking web sites where someone has a question and the experts come crawling out of the woodwork with all this stuff. The one that got me was blotchy stain. This came up three different times and the poor guys asking the question was given tons of ways to fix it lots of them expensive. Not one person told them that in many cases the blotchy appearance will disappear once the finish is applied. That’s just the way the stain looks before its finished! Another one I loved had Janes something or another showing how to put knobs on cabinets by using a level to mark the place to drill for the knobs…I can think of a few things wrong with this. This world is full of information and ways I can screw up by following the directions. I’m sure glad I had teachers who taught critical thinking skills and just didn’t ram the three r’s down me. They were art, design, woodworking, literature and history teachers. One of the things i like here is I see more options then opinion given people. That mistakes are just another way of doing things.
