Today is the Queen's Birthday (Queen Victoria that is) but it is a tradition to celebrate our current queen, Queen Elizabeth ll's birthday on the same day as Victoria. In any event, it is a holiday and a long weekend.
We have an interesting view on the "screw" by a Canadian that wrote a book on the subject and we have a 'step saver' tested as well as a woodshop staple. Enjoy.

Henry Petroski Wrote (among other things) a 450 page book called The Pencil We were on the beach and I'm reading it and the wife says " what's that about?" "pencils" "No, Really what is that about?" I say again "pencils" so she says "no Really . . .
It was interesting but it was a bit slow
