Books to watch out for in second-hand bookstores: Memories of a Game Ranger

<A man who killed a lion with a small knife as he was being dragged into the bush in the jaws of the Lion. The knife and the lion skin are still on display at Skukuza rest camp>

Probably not a hipster then.

Baseball, Mom, <fill in the blank>

<At my current job, I've been messing around with individual crostatas for a while. And while the chefs and I have disagreed over how to shape them, bake them, and even fill them, I've been able to hold on to the same base recipe for the dough. I've found, through several giant batches, that the scraps, when stacked, folded and re-rolled, go from standard pie crust flaky to puff pastry-esque. And when egg washed and generously sugared, it takes on a gorgeous color and crisp outer texture.

Add to that the method for cooking apples that the executive chef taught me, with a few of my own tweaks added for personal taste, and I figured I had the makings for a fairly epic apple pie.>

This pie has a filling that's sweet, bitter, and just a little savory, a crust that shows off technical skill and a love for good old butter, and something classic yet subtly original melting all over everything.

Safety as you roam the streets on foot, an available stranger to turn to, neighborhood watch, alert presences that deter malefactors.

Gracious Living 101

After a life full of “productivity hacks” as part of an effort to optimize the little personal time available to me, I have reconsidered. As I decompress slowly in a world where I own my every waking and sleeping moment, I look for “idleness hacks”. These are small things that help to remind me of the fact that there is no rush. There will be another bus, boat, train, meal, and day.

Idleness 101 - The Shaving Brush

Shaving is no longer a hurried, sometimes bloody necessity. It is a pleasure. Working up a lather with hot water is relaxing. Taking the time necessary to do a good job is satisfying. In an email-free life one can simply do a really good job (or at least as good a job as one cares to) on every task. No blazing through tasks A, B, and C in order to get to task D.

Food is more carefully prepared and tastes better. Walks are enjoyable and re-routable based on whim. Nothing is rushed through.

Even if you are still gainfully employed, you need to carve out some space and time where you are the Master of Your Own Destiny. May I suggest that your morning shave is such a time.

Ive been using a brush for almost all of my life. and even now that I shave my noggin, I use a brush and mug. I dont think it makes me superior in any way. Just a data point. I dont know that it is any more leisurely. Or that it is better. Its just how I go about the chore. I do know it is a hell of a lot cheaper to buy shaving soap for a couple bucks for six months than a can or tube every month or two.

Winner in the Best Fallacy Category

<On the crowded, heaving South Bank one day, I passed a cruelly long line for a public bathroom. Having just exited a deserted loo around the corner, I decided to be a good samaritan and informed a lady around 10th place in line about the empty loo a few feet away. She declined to move. “I’ve already waited this long,” she said with a note of resignation. Ladies and gentlemen, the sunk cost fallacy!>

Damn, the class is already full

Intro to Forging: Swords and Knives

<In this class Dabblers will learn proper tool use and shop safety, as well as the principles of design and fabrication of the forged blade. We will show examples of proper heat treatment, hammering and shaping of steel, grinding and sanding, handle attachment, buffing and finishing work, as well as sharpening.

The class format is both lecture and demonstration, however students will be able to get some hands on practice with the forge, hammer, and grinder at the end of class.>

Well, the 792-mile commute would have been a pain.
You've marveled at the craftsmen (and women) who can bend metal to their will. Now you'll have a chance to learn the basics of forging and try it for yo...
