    If'n I had ta guess, I'd say it was a soft cap--not unlike a sleeping cap kind of thing. I wouldn't bet my paycheck on it...

    My first thought too was a kerchief but I don't see a knot.

    Good morning!

    I did a little research and came up with what I already knew. "Hoon" refers to a hooligan in a car. No dice there. I wonder if "sawed-hoon" originally came from "sod-hound" or some-such, and meant...

    Bernie, this is really neat, and like so much good stuff, it begs a question. What is meant by "sawed-hoon"? (Please don't answer someone opposed to secession).

    Greetings.

    I recently acquired an old shovel and want to know how best to protect it and still use it at events.

    It's a short-handled transfer, (or what I would call "coal"), shovel, with a...

    Mighty purty!

    From a museum/conservation standpoint, I'd recommend that it's okay to gently clean it and re-oil it. If it were a part of my museum's collection I would gently disassemble the parts...

    As a curator, I'll agree that how badly degraded something appears is not always an accurate way to identify age. I've seen any number of artifacts and documents that I'd swear aren't a dozen years...

    All-in-all, it's a "what the market will bear" sort of thing--what an individual buyer or seller chooses to put up with.

    Each individual votes with their wallet. I, personally, tend to be annoyed...

    When I've sold a few things, I've just assumed that the 3% fee is part of the cost of doing business and it doesn't hurt me to lose out on a few bucks. It's no big deal.

    In my limited experience with salt meats (pork, beef, fish) you need to soak it overnight or boil it, and then throw out that water. Do that a couple of times (although I don't recommend boiling...

    He doesn't talk about sealing it back up, but I think that that might have been something our boys wouldn't have worried about. I think that they were dealing with enough men that they could open a...
