Here’s a book you both might find worthwhile: Give and Take by Adam Grant (you can probably get it at your local library.) Below is the blurb from the front inside flyleaf:
“For generations we have focused on the individual…"
""So your point is that it is hopeless for some of us."
Again, we learn "confrontational situations". But if a thing can be learned, it can be unlearned. These are skill sets-- we're all capable…"
"When it comes to time, I’m an agnostic -- I’m not sure that such a dimension exists. It seems to me that most of the stuff we call time is simply motion of one sort or another. The time period “24 hours” or…"
Yes, actually a USDA inspector who worked in a meat packing plant showed me how to do this. Apparently, most meat cutters use a similar method. Actually you don’t get a “wire” edge but you’re right, the edge…"
The Craftsman stone should be adequate for your needs. Here’s a technique that I use that literally gets the blade SHARP AS A RAZOR:

"Those who have had one concussion seem more susceptible to another, especially if the new injury occurs before symptoms from the previous concussion have completely resolved. There is also a…"

"I'd go for a more classic cut personally, and something far less shiny.
I have a suit that is similar to yours, it's cut in a more tailored style as opposed to the extreme slim cut of yours, but it's something I'd only wear for…"
"Good call. Actually college and drinking go together remarkably well. It sounds like you guys have a difference in values. Finish it up now before you both become miserable. Move on, find a nice quiet girl who doesn't drink,…"
"I had assumed that was a joke, Herb!
We always used to say we hoped and prayed the school would burn down so we wouldn't have to go -- because it was torture, man! Not a joke I'd make in current circumstances, tho."
"Hey, Rob, The Bible says:
3. For we ourselves also were sometimes foolish, disobedient, deceived, serving divers lusts and pleasures, living in malice and envy, hateful, and hating one another. 4 But after that the kindness and love of God our…"
