I’m John—been lurking for a while, signed up a month ago, this is my first post to this board.
About me—semi-retired mechanical engineer. Jobs are REALLY, REALLY hard to find.
Fortunately I have a wife who takes good care of me.
Now, I have lots of time on my hands, and have been venturing into cooking, much of it is baking.
Not an expert, but I think I’m learning pretty well.
I look forward to mingling with the active posters on the board.
I get the impression there are many top-notch bakers out there.
If you folks don’t mind answering me some sincere questions, I’d appreciate it.
My username is Tunaoue; It’s a play on Tuna (I’m a fisherman) and Tanouye/Tanoue - my mother’s familiy name from Japan.
Mom was a Korean war bride when my father was in the Army back in 1951 to 1956.
I’m the result of a Japanese farmer’s daughter who excels in the tea ceremony, and a Rancher from Wyoming, yep - a cowboy.
Now I’m a retired engineer taking up cooking as a hobby. What are we in for?
