You like the suspenders? You could be a candidate for being a Rugged Dudette one day... we have training programs for that.

RD sure seems to know what he's doing, and living quite nicely! :-)
The picture of his stove looks just like the one I learned to cook on with my mother.

So, that's it... it's the Google. You have to get the Google if you wanna watch the Youtubes or the Net Flix. I know, because I tried otherwise, and it just wouldn't work.

Maybe yours does. Mine doesn't. I'm magic like that

I also have some cast iron pans and pots that are more than 100 years old, which I use almost every day.

Anyone else???????????
Gosh, I never knew how retro my kitchen is!

My name is Mad Cook and I am a jam-jar-aholic. Can't throw one away! I even have Kilner Jars (like Mason jars) of the 1932-1948 vintage which I rescued from the jaws of the house-clearance man when my Grandmother died in 1983!!! And I use them!

I have a Kenwood stand mixer (similar type of thing as a Kitchen Aid) which is nearly 50 years old (inherited from my Mother but I think it may have had a previous owner!) and a 30 year old Magimix Grand Famille food processor, both of which I use several times per week. I never throw away any hand held kitchen tools if they are serviceable, whatever their age, and I have some of Mother's and my grandmother's essentials and I make a bee-line for old kitchen stuff in charity/thrift shops and antique fairs.

I'm not sure that respectable elderly spinsters like me should be reading this forum. Where I live "suspenders" are those things which rather fast young women use to hold up their stockings.

Oh my! Well, do not hide your head with shame. Here they mean to hold up a man's pants. Outer wear pants that is. You have not been shamed.

Yours is more rugged!

Yeah. That was my mother's. She didn't fool around.

For Mad Cook those would be "braces".

True. And here, "braces" are something we use to straighten out teeth!
