    "You learn something every day if you pay attention." ~Ray LeBlond
    "It's what you learn after you know it all that counts." ~Attributed to Harry S. Truman

    It got me thinking the other day when I read an article in one of my pottery magazines that gave a solution for dealing with wax resist errors.
    Seems like not a week goes by that I don't learn something new on this forum. So, I thought, BYC is a great source of information and wouldn't it be fun to have members post their bits of wisdom learned each day?

    With so many members, if its true that "One Learns Something New Everyday", then let's share what we've learned and we'll be come the forum with the most knowledgable members!!!

    Post here what you learned today! It can be as simple as a fact of history or an easy cleaning tip, about chickens or about life.

    Today I learned that:
    To remove wax from bisqueware, use alcohol. This will also work for removing melted wax from tablecloths and carpets.

    This morning I learned that I can do more pushups than I realized. (But they were the girly, on the knee kind, so they don't really count...)

    I learned that moving boxes aren't meant to carry exceptionally-heavy stuff, like PCs, hardware, etc.

    A valuable lesson.

    I've learned that no matter how young you feel, you still can not keep up with an almost 4 year old. ~yawn~

    I learned that Hox genes are highly conserved among species and that 30 minutes of digestion at 37C in a .02% Type 1 collagenase solution might be enough to dissociate individual fibers from mouse soleus.

    Today I learned button quail eggs are very easy to break, so be easy while turning. ( I also learned that I think I need to build more coops, I have become a hatchaholic.)
