    Does anyone here have physical talent?

    After lurking here for so long it seems Foosters have the gift of gab but little to back up physical merits. Does anyone here have real world usable skills? Wood working, sewing, musical instrument playing, singing, cooking, metal-working, painting, iron-working, etc. ??? Do you change your oil, replaces your brake pads , check your tire pressure??? Can anyone here tie a bowline knot.....or even a square-knot? Step outside your cubicle and show off your talent. With pictures.

    I evidently softly snore in a rhythmic, almost melodic fashion. Does that count?

    If I visit Colorado, will you let me try your chocolate chip cookies? I love chocolate, I love cookies, and not surprisingly, I love chocolate chip cookies.

    Baking is a talent for sure. But there is more to baking than following the recipe on the back of a Nestle package. What do you cook?

    I play a TV remote like nobody's business. My fingers jump from channel 248 to 500 faster than most people think humanly possible. It is not natural talent mind you.....oh I practice and I practice. Just tonight I have been holding down the up channel button for almost 2 hours now.......one handed

    I built a bike. And a few computers. Does that count for anything?

    Oh, and I can tie my shoes! I don't know what kind of knot that is, but I can tie the **** out of it!

    Not only a square knot, bowline knot, a ONE HANDED bowline knot, but my own BOW TIE knot, too!

    I do most of the minor mechanical stuff on my vehicles, bikes, toys. Fly planes, bake, cook and more.

    Musician:
    Guitar
    Keyboards
    Flute
    Tin Whistle
    Some Banjo
    Tres (Cuban instrument, like a guitar, probably related to a Russian Balalaika, 3 sets of paired strings)

    I cook
    I can drive anything with wheels on it, and do so in extreme conditions

    Weird side, I can cross one eye at a time.

    Computers count. Shoe knots are tied by everyone. Those that can`t tie shoes are challenged. Older folks can use velcro shoes without penalty.

    Lacing wheels...sweet!

    Normal car work counts!

    Sharpening knives counts

    Leather work counts



    You can earn a living from all of these. Cool!
