A good seasoning protects them.  Why oil it to let it collect dirt and dust?    You are making it harder than it has to be and that is one of the principals of Yuppism, make it harder than it needs to be.  Next thing you'll be buying a Prius and trying to pickm your nose through you ass hole at stop lights. ::)

Whoa now. Next you’re going to tell me to cut my man bun and and stop drinking $13 locally sourced double-IPA microbrews. :o

I read a thing the other day on a different website on which I am a contributor where a fellow was talking about a process he called “starching in” his cast iron. I hadn’t ever heard of this, but apparently it’s a popular thing among the yuppie cast iron crowd. Apparently after their over-the-top seasoning process, the last step is that they will fry a potato to charcoal in the pan as a way to “add carbonized starch to the season for a harder coating.” It sounds like a potato’s worth of cow pie to me. But apparently the suburban like it.

I run this group over there also, the Yuppies don't last long, one rule is you can be asked why it works at any time.

My favorite is the soap thing, "my mamma told me not to."  Yeah, my mama told me to do it, you want her number to call and tell her she's wrong? ;D

Been in the 40s all day here and overcast. Supposed to get warmer the next few days and supposedly will hit the 70s by Christmas Day. Having coffee and gonna make some Eggdrop Soup in a couple minutes for dinner.
Now if we could get the panic-mongers to give us a break, maybe we can enjoy the holidays.

Morning y'all. Welcome to the first day of Winter.  ::)
Coffee and tea are hot.

Off verk until next Monday.
Picking up #1 daughter at Milwaukee airport this afternoon.
Don't know if I wrote this before, #2 daughter started a 6 month job, yesterday, at Fort McCoy teaching Afghani "immigrants" English.

'Tis 10 and cloudy. "Blustery. Cloudy with a chance of snow showers. Highs in the upper 20s. South wind 5 to 10 mph increasing to west 15 to 25 mph in the afternoon. Chance of snow 40 percent."

Precipitation: 100% and coming down pretty steady now.
The tornado watch issued for Southwest Florida does not include us.

Not sure what I'll do with myself, maybe wander to the LGS  :-\

#1 daughter is home and snug in bed.

Cats think the tree stand is a good place to drink.  ::)

'Tis 8 and clear. High of 22.

Thanks for the coffee, Slim.
#1 Daughter and her family coming up to stay overnight Friday.
Wife has been practicing Christmas Carols on the piano for several weeks now, just to get the kinks out of her fingers. Anticipate a relaxing Christmas morning. Cinnamon buns and wife's world famous bacon, egg and cheese casserole to bake, stockings hanging on the mantle to empty of goodies, then coffee with Irish Cream and some presents to open.
Conference call with Daughter #2 and her family in Chicago to share news.

In the mood for a grilled steak today. Weather will hit 50º or so. Wife picked out a nice slab o' dead bovine meat that I've lovingly rubbed with "The Rub".
And then helping the Mrs. clean house in preparation for the weekend.

Thanks for the Coffee, Slim

Never made it to the LGS yesterday (I was going just to go), I'll remedy that today, not looking for anything particular.
Besides it's a good excuse to have lunch @ the China Buffet.

Museum is closed Christmas day, so I scheduled myself for all day Christmas Eve Day and Boxing Day so the other curator can have a long Xmas weekend with his family.
My Daughter will be down Saturday and we can celebrate then.

Headed to the ER in a bit, O2 levels have been great but they dropped over the day, that and some other things make me think the pneumonia is coming back.   I hope they have a bed for me and put me on IV antibiotics because it's not a viral type, that's why my vaccination didn't stop it.

Last day of school, got Lexie through finals, big relief, been afraid it was coming back but with Rita down it would be hard to get her to school and home.

No infection, just air passages swelled, not sure why.

Did both the LGS & the China buffet yesterday, enjoyed both....

LGS has glut of both new and consigned handguns, one of which is my own Beretta 81.

I was amused to see a Pietta 1860 the consigner is asking $599 for :o

I told Ted (my friend/owner) he should charge rent on the space it's taking up cause it will be camped out there a long time at the asking price.... he agreed but that's what the owner said he wanted for it  ::)

Morning all, 47 here right now and supposed to get up to 60. Lotsa bright sunshine, so it is real pretty looking out from the porch. Del, behave yourself and get better!

Morning y'all.
Coffee and tea are hot.

I'll be praying, Del.

Got the bullet trap, Major 2's pattern, delivered yesterday.

'Tis 24 and partly cloudy. "Not as cold. Mostly cloudy in the morning then becoming mostly sunny. A chance of snow showers in the morning. Highs in the middle 30s. South wind 5 to 10 mph. Chance of snow 50 percent."
