Good luck! MBA's have value to some people but, not most who get them. I'm a life long student of life which has taught me more than I ever learned in college.I'm currently in an MBA program...but I already have an M.A. in case it doesn't work out.
But what about the European holidays? Or have us "YANKS" just co-opted them like Saint Patricks day and Cinco de Mayo?Guys, you need to take off your American glasses: nobody knew Black Friday in Europe before am*zo* started it also here in Europe. We’re also not celebrating Thanksgiving the way you do it...
I can see that with local Monarch's whether Orange day in the Netherlands (King's Day, formally Queen's Day) or the British Queen's "days" celebrations related to her birthday and bad weather.Thinking about it, we don’t celebrate St Patrick’s Day (Irish) either, or cinco de Mayo... Too many countries here in EU, each have their own holidays, except religion-based ones, of course.
I appreciate the well wishes! Retired military and have lived in Europe, Saudi Arabia, and Asia, not counting all over the US, so I understand being a student of life sometimes is more valuable. No doubt it is for me.Good luck! MBA's have value to some people but, not most who get them. I'm a life long student of life which has taught me more than I ever learned in college.
On the Job Training is an often overused term but, what made me professionally successful was not what I learned at college getting an engineering degree, it was the things learned actually working and living life. Being a life long student of life worked very well for me. Whether it is the same for you I suspect depends a lot on what you expect out of life.
Now, after a serious derail from the OP's original post:
Walton's has some good deals on meat processing equipment, in my case a grinder and sausage stuffer about 25% off!
Walton's Inc, and their Meatgistics site are both good places to start if you are interested in Jerky and Sausages in my case, and general meat processing overall.
That was weird... I thought hmmm maybe I should grab it and when I went back to the link it was $45 more!Sick Yoshikane petty for cheap at EE
Check DC cutleryfrom the department of odd / random / left field: in canada, online, "bed bath & beyond" [yes, i know, i know...] has the miyabi birchwood 9.5" gyuto for... a pretty respectable price. likewise the miyabi "artisan", i think. both = SG2.
if anybody sees a good price on the 52100 carbon kramer 10" chef knife anywhere, please post. only special price on it anywhere seems to be the home butcher (?), where it's out of stock.
so you bought the Tanaka Damascus full 240?I was heading out to JNS myself if the double dip didn't work - they had a knife that I could have wanted, and stones that I did want. Also saw amazing deals on KNS - I guess you scored one of them.
Let me just say I scored nicely for now. Don't like tempting fates when Paypal is doing a pending-checkup on me because the order went south of 1K I guess...
Edit: I ordered Friday, BTW, so I'm only guessing Adam was holding the sale through the weekend only, possibly only Friday and Saturday as he's closed on Sundays.
nice, I saw that one as well, but damn it's too much and I already took his Yoshi SKD months ago. I don't think I need another 240 right now. Tosho has a nice single bevel deal, but I still want a Garasuki and a Petty from Knifewear. I got a nice deal for Suji from K&S and it was my main priority anyway.you are killing my fates man. Can’t shy from the truth. Full workhorse Tanaka incoming. I know you’re only wishing that Paypal will mess me up - but I’ll just wire Adam the funds if that’s what it comes down to.
It sucks when your tax dollars are used for social programs you personally don’t need. Bad return on investment or whatever the correct term is?It's getting a bit political but, personally, I don't believe in Socialism and ultra-liberal welfare states. California taxation and politics and far-left public policies are a real turn-off for me. Upstate New York is beautiful but, again the politics and taxation are simply too much for me. New Jersey and its draconian gun policies are too much for me and don't get me started on Chicago. I don't like gun violence more than anyone else but, when you outlaw guns, only criminals/outlaws will have them to terrorize the innocents.
I guess you could call me a libertarian because I don't care what consenting competent adults who are free of coercion to do or not do whatever they want in their private lives. I'm not opposed to helping those in real need of help either but, multigenerational learned helplessness is unacceptable.
Multigenerational failing school systems are another common theme of widespread failure. And the loss of trades in public school systems at the alter of "no child left behind" and everyone must go to COLLEGE is a national disgrace. Not everyone needs to go to college and, just because you chose a different path does not mean you are dumb or inferior to someone else. In fact, some of the sharpest people around are independent craftsmen who may or may not have a diploma. After all, does my plumber really need an MBA?
I feel it, lots of thinkers today. Trying to hold out and see if EE does a drop on Yoshi black before committing to something else.I was trying real hard to not get another knife (because frankly, I dont need one) but it was too hard to resist getting a Toyama 240 now from JNS =/
