    Most people don't know that back in 1912, Hellmann's mayonnaise
    was manufactured in England. In fact, the Titanic was carrying
    12,000 jars of the condiment scheduled for delivery in Vera Cruz,
    Mexico, which was to be the next port of call for the great ship
    after its stop in New York.

    This would have been the largest single shipment delivered to
    Mexico. But as we know, the great ship did not make it to New York.
    The ship hit an iceberg and sank, and the cargo was forever lost.

    The people of Mexico, who were crazy about mayonnaise, and were
    eagerly awaiting its delivery, were disconsolate at the loss. Their
    anguish was so great, that they declared a National Day of
    Mourning, which they still observe to this day.

    The National Day of Mourning occurs each year on May 5th and is
    known, of course, as "Sinko de Mayo".

          Well I never... you learn something new every day. Perhaps that explains why Mexicans use sour cream on their tacos.

          This has reminded me of a Canadian archeologist who told me that Lea & Perrins Worcestershire sauce was very popular with early Canadian settlers and trappers who foraged in the tundra. Since Lea & Perrins have maintained a record of all their bottle designs, archeologists have been able to sift through the remains of settlements and date them according to the types of Worcestershire sauce bottles they found.

              Whatever way you decide to do if you are happy and your brother in law is happy it was a good idea. If you really want to be brave use it as a learning experience. Make several of them using different suggestions and see the difference....

              Well, unfortunately, I have also decided to let my subscription lapse. I've been debating it for the past couple years. It isn't so much the money, but it's more the disappointment when yet another issue has so little in it that really appeals to me. The final straw was this past Fall/Winter edition...

              Thanks to all !😀 Your comment are very good and make sense!

              My piece is 8"X8" X 1/2" thick.
              I though when I cutted the piece to do it in 1 piece or 4/5 , but after a while I decided to do it in one piece and carved it to have a 3D aspect.
              Was it a good idea.....?...

              Great designe! I would have gone a bit further than Linda, Scott and Gladefade I would cut it into more pieces to make shaping easier. Taper the clouds from right to left, taper the wings so that they are lower where they attach to the body. Taper the neck so that it looks like it is going into the...

              The never ending dilemma. I only get two magazines SSWWC and Wood carving Illustrated. Even if I don't make something in every issue there is usually something in each one that I have never tried and that will either challenge or inspire me. Yes I know that I do test cutting for them and they have occasionally...
