Hey, guess what?! I remembered that it was Tuesday today!!! Shocking, I know! Don't worry, I have a back up to remind me just in case I forget though... ;)
Today's tidbit is something that I never would have thought of to do, but it's really a great tip!! Especially if you have a cutting table that is a bit low and your back hurts from cutting so much!
I received an email from Karen who shared this with me:
"I got a tip straight from the world of competitive barbecuing. My father is on a competitive barbecue team. Since him and his teammates are all on the tall side, their backs would start hurting as they had to stand hunched over to pull their pork butts. They came up with an ingenious solution. They now can raise up their table quickly when they need it, and put it back down when they don't. How, you wonder? Take 1 1/2 inch PVC pipes, cut into 12 inch lengths, cap one end, and put it onto your cutting table's legs. I put the table up for marathon cutting sessions that used to leave my back in spasms. If you don't want your table up, just remove the legs.
And, please excuse the stained carpet. Our dog, the Village Idiot, chew up a lipstick under the table. The rest of the mess, well, its my sewing room. It breeds creativity, right?"
Sorry Karen, I had to leave in the Village Idiot comment...it totally made me laugh! :D Thanks so much for sharing this tip!!
Anyone else have a tip to share?! Just email me at firstname.lastname@example.org, and if you have one, include your blog address so I can link to you! :)
