  1. What a great idea! They ought to do one with all of the players at the next Wildwood National Tournament and make a fundraising poster out of it.
  2. Bottom is a little sketchy, maybe a pontil. Nice little handgathered mib!
  3. Definitely worth it, Steph, that’s stunning! Beautiful marbles, and the sunlight just brings them alive.
  4. Jelles Marble Runs, the league John Oliver sponsored on YouTube, has been getting a lot of recent attention in the media as viewership online has risen during the Covid crisis. https://ftw.usatoday.com/2020/03/marble-racing-jelles-sports-espn-origin https://www.si.com/more-sports/2020/03/22/marble-racing-jelle-coronavirus-sports-greg-woods-commentator https://edition.cnn.com/2020/03/23/sport/jelles-marble-runs-coronavirus-sport-spt-intl/index.html https://www.washingtonpost.com/technology/2020/04/03/marble-racing-jelles-runs-video/ Jelles Marble Runs new season starts here... https://youtu.be/k9QDz94WIPA
  5. Good on John! I haven’t seen “Last Week Tonight” yet - it’s on the DVR - but I rarely miss it, he is always a trip. Are you not entertained?😆
  6. Hey Woodse, I just posted the granola recipe in the “What Are You Eating?” forum here on the board. It does have one somewhat uncommon ingredient, barley malt syrup, but it’s available from King Arthur Flour and Amazon that I know of and makes a big difference in flavor and I think crunch, too. I’ve used it in granola for years. Hope you enjoy it!
  7. Recipe by request... Maple Nut Granola Dry: 4 c oatmeal Bob’s Red Mill extra thick rolled oats 1 c toasted unsweetened coconut flakes (toasted @300° about 6-7 min.) 1/2 c Bob’s Red Mill hulled hemp or sesame seeds, raw 1/2 c Bob’s Red Mill flax or bran meal 1-1/4 c toasted pecans ( toast at 350° for 6-8 min. or so) 1/2 c raw wheat germ Wet: 2/3 c + 2 TBL Maple Syrup, Grade B dark 1/3 c + 1 TBL Barley malt syrup - available from King Arthur or Amazon 1/2 c + 2 TBL coconut oil 2 TBL Light brown sugar (added to wet ingredients) Add to liquid after it cools slightly: 1-1/2 tsp. Vanilla paste (or vanilla extract) 1/2 tsp. fresh nutmeg 1/2 tsp. cinnamon 1/2 tsp. table salt Optional: scant 1/8 tsp. maple flavoring Mix dry ingredients well in a large bowl or pan. Combine wet ingredients in a small saucepan on low on the stove, adding vanilla and spices after removing from heat and cooling, then add the wet to the dry and mix VERY well. Divide evenly on two half sheets covered with parchment paper and bake in pre-heated oven at 300° (275° if convection) for approximately 30-40 minutes, stirring every 10 until nicely brown and crunchy. Cool well and store in airtight container. Add dried fruit if desired.
  8. I agree on both calls, in these pics the handmade looks like a very nice naked core swirl, but some closer pics would help.
  9. I can relate, Marbleized, as another senior retiree living in a condo, weekends are just another day, unfortunately, especially now for us sports fans ☹️ Groundhog Day was always a favorite movie but now that I’m living it it’s more difficult than I thought. I miss my family and friends. We had just leased a new car - our old one died the day before my hip replacement surgery three months ago, perfect timing 😝 - and had planned to go visiting a lot more by now, do some traveling - ha! “Life is what happens while other plans are being made.” Always. I read, I cook - I’m the chef for two of us, my lovely wife of 47 years - I bake (best brownies and homemade granola in the city,) I garden as much as my joints arthritis let me, and marble a bit. Watch too much TV of course, and sleep too little. And that new car, now two months old, still has less than 400 miles on it.
  10. Neat dish, Steph, it looks carefully curated. What is the sphere at far 3 o’clock? Is that a wild snowflake obsidian or something else?
  11. That seems logical, to quote our pointy-eared friend up there😉
  12. Truly fascinating find, Jason. Is there a more remarkable natural substance on the planet than honey?

    I wonder

    Great link, too, there’s some nice eye candy there.
  14. Good to know, Brian, thanks! Question - by different, could you describe or show how? Or is it the more orange of the other example?
