I've never made the French kind that is shown in the Julia Child video.

I make a simple version of an "omelette menagère" (French for homemaker's omelette). I don't bother folding. I have never made an American omelette.

I don't know the Julia Child kind. Not by that name anyway.

I used to make very good omlettes, but I got lazy in my old age and am now very happy just adding the chopped veggies to my scrambled eggs. I don't like to order them out because they put cheese in them and I don't like cheese and eggs together. I could ask them to leave it out, but I always forget then I'm picking the cheese out.

I usually make a few/year just to stay in practice.
I never knew a woman who wasn't impressed with an omelet for breakfast. Just sayin'.

I just finished cleaning up some clutter. I have no idea what to do with some of the stuff I have, but I'm trying to get rid of what I don't use or think I'll use.
Do second hand shops buy this crap? I'm not one to have a yard sale, but I hate simply throwing away good crap.

Just a few times a year?

What kind of good crap are you talking about, Pac? We take just about everything to Goodwill that we can't recycle.

I don't think second hand shops buy anything. They take donations. Depending on how much you have and what condition it's in, you could place an ad for a box of flea market items for one total price, take all. It can't be very much, but people who sell at flea markets for a living will be interested if you have things they can sell at a profit.

Our neighborhood has a big yard sale every summer and we have participated a couple times. One time it was near the end of the day and my DH bargained with a guy who bought everything we had left, minus a couple expensive items my husband would not include. That was great. We didn't have to drag all that stuff back into the house.

Oh I don't know... crap, lol.
Old keyboards, monitors, a boatload of coloring pencils/markers/pastels, colored paper, cd rom games that probably won't work on the newer softwares, plus the hand controler thingy, an ancient external hard drive, clocks, pictures and knick knacks I'll never hang or set up... I've got a lot of stuff that's garbage to me, but probably worth something to someone. I've got a bunch of Budweiser stuff too, like fishing lures, miniature trucks, billard rack, box that looks like an old crate... I've got more stuff than I know what to do with. Anybody want an Atari? lol

There are recycling places that take apart electronics. I don't think you'll make much money, maybe try Ebay or Craigslist? The Budweiser stuff would probably be worth something to those who collect it, I was shocked at how much the comic books and Tonka toys went for to collectors when I had Mom's auction.

Some "higher-end" second-hand shops take stuff on consignment, but not the kind of stuff you have. Habitat for Humanity and Goodwill take it and will give you a receipt for a tax donation.
