    To approach a lazy coworker?

    Do you ever have any supervision in the kitchen? To me, this sounds like a poorly run business. You've allowed him to take control so there's really nothing you can do to stop the issues on your own. He is going to be lazy regardless of what anyone does over time. If the other members of the...

    Wanting To Be The Boss So Soon?

    He needs to suspended at the least.  Who asks someone to hug another employee?  And does that sound like a great idea after he just threw a bunch of glasses? Where's the management in this place?  Don't they have someone there to make sure people are doing their job?   I mean, I can tell from...

    Heirloom seeds?

    What's the 'right way'?  You do realize that you would still end up with the same gene either way.  Except with conventional breeding, you end up with a lot of unknown changes. And for time, it would depend how likely you are to get a mutation to do what you want and the amount of resources you...

    talking to the new generation

    I think it's important to scale the pay for a good employee.  There are definitely people who aren't worth minimum wage while you have someone else only making $3 more per hour producing three times as much.  It's hard to motivate someone to work extra hard if there's very little reward for...

    talking to the new generation

    The Millenial generation is the largest generation.  And with that, you'll get a large number of people applying in service jobs that can't do much more.  Given that many services jobs don't pay enough to make a living, many hard workers will do anything to get out of the line of work.

    talking to the new generation

    #3 just sounds like BS.  Yeah, he/she just knows everything with 14 years experience.  I came to my conclusion after seeing a lot people come off that way.  They worked everywhere and there is reason they've worked at so many places...

    Heirloom seeds?

    The article is way off - real reason is that there are more large companies looking to maximize profit so growing varieties that are less profitable, well aren't grown because they don't make anywhere near as much money, have disease problems... Not because of patents, which wouldn't affect old...

    talking to the new generation

    I don't think it has anything to do with the age of your employees.  In my experience, there's an equal amount of older workers who can't give up their phone or follow directions.  The industry has low pay and those who go to school think it's going to be a ton of fun and they're going to make a...

    Chef Knife and Sharpening System

    I keep my landscaping tools constantly wiped with Lysol to prevent spreading disease. Here is a picture of my Japanese pruners. 8.5" handles. If you run your finger on the blade, it will cut. Twisting will break the blade. These have a hardness of 60/61.

    Chef Knife and Sharpening System

    I'm willing to wait to save up if it's worth the extra money to go up to the $150 price range.  I like good tools but at the same time, I guess practicing on a more durable knife could also make me more likely to wreck a better knife in the future.  I'm just afraid of ruining a good knife too...

    Chef Knife and Sharpening System

    I'm looking for a balance between holding an edge and being durable.  One of my professional pruners gets dull within two hours which drives me crazy!  I don't want a knife like that... I live in the US and the $100 is just for the knife.  I'd like to practice with the knife first before I...

    Chef Knife and Sharpening System

    Hi, I'm looking for a good knife that's both durable and sharp.  It doesn't have to hold the edge extremely well (especially since it hurts durability).  I'd like to be able to practice sharpening it before I get a great knife - and it's nice to own a knife you don't have baby when you are in a...
