I heated the stone and wiped on a bit of oil to "season" it a few days before.
Then wiped off the excess. The Master , complained immediately that the stone was too dry and I had my brother run to the store for oil. I now have it next to my front door- an oily mess! Very lucky with my kid. He's a great guy!

In i'm my own Grandpaw lyrics, talking to a couple of the "kids" at BA (e.g. Simovich, Cronander, and Miss Pass Jr.) made me feel optimistic about the youths generation.

One would hope for all our sakes that young Ms Pass and Master Variac are not the anomalies.

That said I've known Ms Pass since she was very young..... she was a research wonk from the beginning and quick to express that which was expected of those mingling about.

Typical letter

"I've sent you a picture of water from my pond where the newts live and I need references to what is living in that water, plant or animal, and if it is good or bad for my newts, will it make them sick?" Please ask the biology teacher where you work"

Me thinks howerver that these are exceptional beings, and we need more!

ZM's not a bad photog.

I note an occasional eye for the Tarkovskian.
