Episode-1863- Expert Council Q&A for 9-2-16 — 6 Comments

  1. Hey Jack. Have you ever used a VSharp Classic2 knife sharpener? Works great and it’s idiot proof. Warthog V-Sharp Classic II, Heavy Duty Steel Frame

    I know you’ve tried a lot of products that you were satisfied with but I really like this one. My 78 year old father can destroy any knife in the matter of minutes while trying to sharpen it. I bought this for him a few years ago and his only complaint is him cutting himself every time he gets close to a knife now. This thing can put a pretty good edge on his parents Old Hickory knives in the matter of minutes.

  2. Not sure if this was the episode where you talked about Colin Kapernick, but I wanted to chime in. I personally can’t stand the guy, nothing like a narcisist ungrateful ahole, but to get all out of sorts because of one fools actions just isn’t worth my time. It wasn’t always like this for me though.

    As I age, I have less and less followed football as it doesn’t bring me enjoyment anymore. I used to be the hugest football fan as a kid growing up, as it was the only way to remove oneself from the pains of the day, even if for only a couple hours at a time.

    But I’ve grown older and have come to realize that my happiness is up to me. I’m going to be happy on my own terms and once you realize that, you also realize the stuff that makes you upset, typically things which are beyond my control. Eliminate those things or at least their control on you and voila! you’ll be happier.

    I’m not at all ashamed to admit to being a friend of Bill W either. Folks in AA have told me time and again, that I’m letting others have control over me. The Kapernick thing would be a perfect example. Why let this idiot control your happiness? True freedom means being in control of YOURSELF.

    TSP has done more than anything in getting me to realize my own freedom lies within. Be happy, it’s my choice.

  3. Nice Ike quote! I came across this one yesterday: ” Indeed, I think that people want peace so much that one of these days governments had better get out of their way and let them have it” Dwight D. Eisenhower

  4. Just another day for ,not work, I mean work toward my place versus my work toward the buildings of others.
    Doesn’t pay cash but dividends in thought.
    Thanks for all you do.

  5. Jack, FANTASTIC idea to punk Steven Harris! I think everyone would get a kick out of it! FYI: April Fools is Saturday in 2017… perhaps you can line it up to be a day early?
