    Default Frying pan score

    I had all my Christmas shopping done early this year and really
    intended to cut back. My brother had been looking for a non stick frying
    pan and found on at the Paderno sale at a local hardware. He raved about
    it and called me on Wednesday to say that they were still on sale for
    half price. I scooted out and bought one for my wife to give me for
    Christmas. We used it to make breakfast yesterday and today and are very
    happy with it.

    What's special about it, Dave? What are the specs?

    Cool score! Ours was bigger than normal but for good reasons.
    DEC2004, - I was in the Gulf dodging speed boats
    DEC2005,- I got back 23rd after 10 weeks at sea and pulled back out to sea
    26th
    DEC2006,- that one was fairly good
    DEC2007,- We'd just gotten stateside and had huge house repair bills
    DEC2008,- Facing retirement and no job, stayed trim
    DEC2009,- new job plus retirement money, caught up many things

    Grin, even with that a lot of it was dead on practical stuff this year.
    Like, a REAL vacumn sealer that can keep up with our needs. Memory foam
    neck pillows as recommended by my Doc (and Don has some issues there too so
    won't hurt), work clothes of winter weight since I had little but blue jeans
    and party clothes when I retired from the Navy, warm coat for Charlotte and
    some new flannel PJ's. Sure there were 'toys' as well, but the bulk was
    purely practical. Even the Wii isnt *just* for games. Doc wants me to get
    a specific exercise routine item (sold out just now) to use with my back for
    physical therapy. (Once i have it, I make appointment with PT clinic for
    special training on how to use it for my needs).

    Pure fun though? STAR TREK, the original seris, all 3 years (grin).

    Not being much on non stick myself I am familiar with Paderno and de Buyer
    carbon steel pans. For me I simply treat as if seasoning cast iron and find
    them pretty non stick. I do own 2 non stick fry pans by ScanPan CTX line for
    induction cooking though they are hardly a good buy based on price compared
    to ether the Paderno or de Buyer carbon pans. I just don't care for aluminum
    based pans unless encapsulated in stainless. At half price though I would
    buy any of the Paderno line if I need a one though.

    Know what you mean. We've been tempted to buy one, but want to wait to see
    where life takes us in about 6 weeks time. Possibly moving..... could be
    around the same area, or it could be interstate.

    It's that time of the year again :-)

    What's the specific item??

    Quite a few years back when I was having constant back problems, my Physio
    recommended a certain item that was advertised on TV. It retailed for
    about $50. A (softish) type roller (that looked like a dumbell) that you
    placed under your spine so that it's 'sides' were either side of your
    spine. You then rolled up and down on it, on the floor.

    We homemade several very good working copies of it by taping two tennis
    balls together!!

    Cost? About $3.

    If we are not meant to eat animals,
    why are they made of meat?

    They look pretty in the web site pictures, but they don't give much
    information on what they are made from. Quite a few choices.

    Glad you are happy with it, that is what counts. I use non-stick for
    cooking breakfast most days too.

    Sorry, it's in a folder at work. But it's one of those where you need the
    workout pad and an added hardware bit past just the 'num-chuk' looking hand
    thingie. He said the item as sold wasnt *designed* for this directly, being
    more a hard solid workout routine that would be *bad* for me, but does some
    sort of scaler level of performance and once shown how to use it right, will
    help out alot.

    Grin, sounds fun! Oh catchup for you, MRI in late Nov with readings in
    early Dec shows progression of back. I had a bad incident in late Oct. The
    C4/C5 set got worse. (L4/L5 set holding with minimal degradation). Now the
    C6 isnt looking too great and the T2 has something funky going on. Lovely
    (sad grin). The good news is the Doc agrees there is no danger as long as I
    am careful and we don't need either a dual spinal fusion or a disc
    replacement right now as long as I can deal with it. I'm a classic for the
    newer technology 'spine disc replacement' (kinda like the artificial joints)
    but he says they are getting better and better tech with that so if we can
    wait 2-3 years, it will be even better.

    (sorry to the rest, just catching up with old friend who also has back
    issues. Not looking for pity).

    What? You never shaved your eyebrows and dressed up in pointy ears? Dang!
    Try it! Loads of fun! I used to dress up as the lady Romulan Commander for
    conventions.
