Really Sharp Knives

You do not use the steel every time, you do not sharpen your knife that often. Better buy one good knife and have a pro to sharpen it, because different knives for different purposes needs different angles. Wanna ruin your knife? Sharpen it yourself.

Good knifes sharpen by pros, only needs sharpen once every 4 year or so and will last a life time.

There is no actual Damascus unless you buy one for a 1,000 years ago. They haven’t been Able to remade like the original has. Close maybe like this one is awesome. But not a “ real Damascus. Unfortunately

Some of this is just overboard nonsense.Food does not need to graded in presentation it needs to taste good and be enough to feed the guy that’s paying the bill.

I bought a calphalon self sharpening knives, comes with 5 stones with rods and a “ladder” no muss no fuss, tells you what degree you need for what knife, rods in the stones, fit in the “ladder” very easy and comes with the honing oil. The clamp holds the knife so you don’t have to.

The huge majority of people can not use a steel properly. It causes high and low spot along the blade. Most can not hold the knife and steel at the proper angle. I’ll put the Chef’s Choice sharpener up against any steel person.

When I say you can shave with any blade in the kitchen no matter how big or small I mean just that. That’s how I check my blades. I run it along my furry arm and it better shave the hair off clean and without pressure. When I do all my kitchen knives I have a pretty good bald spot on my left arm. I have never met anyone that has owned a Chef’s Choice that didn’t like it or could not put a razor sharp edge on a knife. It’s like getting a good can opener.

Water Shortage and Drought

Animal agriculture accounts for more water usage than all humans in the state and WORLD combined. What can you do about it? Eat less meat and eat more fruits and veggies.

And what a lot of you don’t understand is that animals raised for meat consumption can be very sustainable- more than veggies and fruits at times. Cattle graze on lands not suitable for crop production (due to no rich soils or means of being able to water/ fertilize). Cattle are the garbage disposals (to some extent) of animals! The way their stomach and digestive tract is set up amazes me! They turn grasses/ plants not useable for human consumption into protein. They are even doing studies by feeding cattle seaweed, and they are getting their nutrition levels met and surpasses from that!

Why don’t we have a Ocean water purifiers already it’s 2018 they say the level of the ocean is raisin so why can’t we purify it and drink it.

The state is to blame, it is the state’s problem. The storage infrastructure has not been updated to support the increase in populations since the dams were built. Farmers can’t farm with continued cuts, they have already been fallowing land because they don’t have enough water to produce crops. Our problem stems from not only drought, but more people pulling from outdated storage methods. On wet years our reservoirs can handle it, but on sequential dry years it obviously cannot. What the “naturalist” groups don’t realize is that these reservoirs also supply year round water which allow for yearly salmon runs and water flushing throughout the delta. What California needs is more water storage.

The other issue is that farming may use water, but it supports much more than just food, many economic entities are tied to farming, labor, equipment, logistics, supermarkets, factories etc. Farmers have already seen cuts to water while other areas of the state continue to receive their allocations. This state is corrupt, and the only way to get certain”anti” people and groups to understand is for them to go hungry and not be able to wash their hands during their next bisit to the sink.

Town Drug Problem What Can Be Done?

Knowing this town has such a huge drug problem, someone like me could go to the ER right now and rather than running the proper tests to rule things out the minute they hear of my illness they will just give me a cocktail of Narcotics to numb the pain, dont get me wrong I believe we have some great doctors and nurses not all but we do have some, but the odds are I will just be numbed up and pushed out the door to make room for another patient. (I sometimes wonder how mamy people become addicts because alot of doctors push them into a corner).

I know someone who is so afraid to get addicted that she doesn’t take the meds prescribed and ends up in terrible pain. It makes her feel like people are looking at her thinking she is mentally ill. It’s been a long journey for her trying to get help, I know our healthcare is free and that’s a good thing but sometimes I wish our system was more like the states where your treated as a paying customer and get the service that demands.

Some narcotics work well for short term use if people take them as prescribed. If you take it upon yourself to up your dose you might spend the rest of your days chasing the high. They are never a solution for chronic pain though and unfortunately that’s where a lot of doctors push them. You become physically dependent and are trapped unless you deal with the sometimes excruciating withdrawals…. And heroin is cheaper than pills so once the addicts start running out of money that’s where they end up. It’s sad.

 Although I highly agree with you on much of your comment Ken I dont believe ALL doctors are, yes they get paid more for the medications however there are some doctors that show concern in over use and overly prescribed medications, its very touch and go and depends on the person who takes them as well and how often. But when we are talking long term use which people who suffer chronic pain use there is a horrible risk of severe addiction and also a severw risk that otger health problems get over looked. I can only speak for myself but I would bet you that if I went to the ER right now like I have contemplated for 4 days now I would be given these drugs and sent home because of one of my diagnosis however something could be terribly wrong and we may not know it till its to late



¡Apoya al emprendimiento Chileno y Latinoamericano votando por nosotros y corriendo la voz con tus amigos!

Estamos orgullosos de anunciar que KAPPO ha llegado a la final de una de las competencias mundiales de emprendimiento e innovación más importantes del mundo ( y que representará a toda Latinoamérica en el evento a realizarse del 9 al 11 de diciembre en Paris, Francia.

¿Qué es Kappo? Es una aplicación chilena realizada para smartphones, tiene como fin incentivar el uso de la bicicleta en las ciudades, pero de una manera totalmente inédita: jugando. La única manera de ganar puntos y participar es subiéndose arriba de la bicicleta, lo que además, ayuda a generar útil información para que se desarrolle y planifique mejor la infraestructura que requieren los ciclistas.


Estimada Comunidad,
Lamentamos informar el robo que sufrió está madrugada la Tienda Oh my Bike, ubicada en la comuna de Macul. Esto nos desagrada en demasía considerando que esta tienda nos ha ayudado en algunas Biciclinicas aportando con insumos y conocimiento sin coste para los ciclistas asistentes.

Desde acá les brindamos nuestro apoyo y cooperación para que puedan recuperar las bicicletas y herramientas hurtadas.

En el transcurso del día iremos publicando fotos de lo sustraído, por si alguien puede aportar con datos e información de quien o donde las este(n) reduciendo.


A Sunday of learning and adventure was what was experienced in the Metropolitan Park of Santiago, in the last activity of the year by the School MTB Happyciclistas.
To the citation came the cyclists registered in a timely manner on our website, given that the magnitude of the exercises applied requires concentration and control of the group, not forgetting that the activity is completely FREE for all.

On this occasion "the class" was divided into two groups; The first group was organized with those cyclists who had already attended previous citations and in the second those who for the first time attended more than the others who stayed to improve the established and taught techniques.

They all ended up happy and tired ... with a pending task to replicate the good practices of what they learned and to return to the next class of the MTB School Happy Cyclists.
