Like skiing and speaking a foreign language, chopstick use is a skill ideally acquired in childhood. But with a little perseverance, adults tired of feeling boorish in Asian restaurants can become adept. To complete this How-To you will need: Chopsticks Patience Step 1: Position chopsticks In your right hand, traditionally used even by the left-handed, rest the thick end of one chopstick on the webbing between your thumb and forefinger so that about an inch of it sticks out beyond your hand, and rest the other end on your ring finger. Keep your fingers loosely curled. Tip: Successful chopstick use depends on stabilizing this bottom chopstick, which doesn't move, to leave your thumb and forefinger free to maneuver the top chopstick, which does. Step 2: Grip bottom stick w/ thumb Grip this bottom chopstick with the bottom of your thumb so it is immobilized and sits firmly on your ring finger. Tip: You can use the tip of your middle finger to stabilize the ring-finger end of the chopstick. Step 3: Grip top stick w/ fingertips If you're holding the bottom chopstick correctly, your entire index finger and the top joint of your thumb are free to move around. Grip the top chopstick between the tips of these fingers so that its tip lines up with the bottom chopstick's tip. Step 4: Maneuver top & bottom sticks To pick up a piece of food, maneuver the top chopstick to grasp it with the tip and brace it against the bottom one. Tip: Etiquette requires that you use chopsticks neither to chop nor to stick. For that, use knives and forks. Step 5: Lift food w/ chopsticks Now, carefully lift a piece of food with your chopsticks, taking care not to let it slide out. Sweet success. Thanks for watching How To Use Chopsticks!

Hachiko's Song (Waiting For Someone)

"HACHIKO'S SONG" BY JIMMY SCOTT - FROM THE CD "A SONGWRITER'S NOTEBOOK" AVAILABLE AT http://www.cdbaby.com/cd/scottjimmy as well as itunes, amazon etc There once was a man so an old story goes Went to the station every day rain or snow His faithful dog would walk right by his side And sit there and wait till he came home at night And when the man died the dog still would go To the station each day Why? No one knows ... He was waiting for someone he loved Waiting for someone he loved Someone he believed in someone he could trust Day after day waiting for someone he loved Days turned to weeks and months turned to years Trains came and went but the dog still appeared Hoping to see the face he adored His old true companion - the one he lived for But then came a night when the dog finally died Now I know he's there walking by his master's side He's been waiting for someone he loved Waiting for someone he loved Someone he believed in someone he could trust Don't you think humans could learn from that dog ? Now I don't know about all of you But I wish that my heart was so true To think he could miss him that much He spent all his life waiting for someone he loved copyright 2009 English Channel Music/ Ascap www.jimmyscottsongwriter.com
