    I'm currently an under-employed teacher, with specialties in history, language arts, and drama. I've taught most at the grade 5-12 levels, and currently looking for other work. I can offer help as an editor, tutor, researcher, or instructor in Canadian and European history. I also make a pretty awesome turkey soup, and have become somewhat of an expert in cooking on a budget :p.

    Dunn's Turkey Soup

    Stock ingredients:

    Turkey bones, stripped of usable meat
    1/4 cup grated white onion
    Sage, Rosemary, and white pepper, to taste (I use about 1/2 tsp sage, 1 each of pepper and rosemary)
    1 packet of Cup a Soup (chicken noodle supreme)
    1 tablespoon of butter
    Enough water to just cover the bones in a large pot

    Soup:
    1/2 cup brown rice
    2 cups diced turkey meat
    1 1/2 cups shredded cabbage
    4 diced carrots
    1 small turnip (softball sized)
    1/2 cup diced onion (if desired)

    Combine above stock ingredients and place on medium heat until it come just to a boil. Reduce heat to low and simmer for 4-5 hours. After about 45 minutes of simmering, use a fine strainer to skim the surface of the liquid for increased stock clarity.

    Remove bones and strain liquid into another container. Return to stove and bring to a low boil. Add rice, turnip, and carrots, and simmer until turnip is only slightly firm, then add the cabbage and onion, if desired. Simmer until cabbage and all veggies are tender. I also added about a teaspoon of sea salt near the end. When I did it, it made about 8 servings, and it was gone within 24 hours, thanks to my family, most if which won't eat soup usually. Hope you like it :-)

    I'm a professional geek of the trading software and project management variety. My specialist subject is data, but anything that involves code or military-like organisation is right up my street. It also means I have a good understanding of investment banking and economics.

    Not sure how that could be of much help to anyone, though!

    Do you take house calls? I can't cook to save my life (there are 3 fire extinguishers in my kitchen, out of sight of course)

    Edit: the forum likes to give me the boot which is what happened as I was writing.

    Neilton, these rashes you have sound suspicious. Have you been abroad recently? Amsterdam perhaps?

    And as for that picture you sent of your 'growth' HCoinslot, I do believe that is your ear.

    :D

    I'm a veterinarian.

    I have a cool holiday giving story I want to share about our hospital's clients. Friday night, we had a patient come in on emergency, and the owners left a $500 donation towards the next patient's bill. The owners of the next patient that came in were able to use that towards helping their pet, and they then left a $200 donation for the clients after them. Those clients weren't able to leave anything extra, but because their bill was under $200, they donated the rest to a charity with which our hospital is associated.

    Pretty awesome examples of complete strangers paying it forward in my opinion.

    I'd gladly teach anyone that honestly wanted to learn. Cooking is easy, but its mostly hands on. Anyone can learn, after all, our ancestors cooked over fire and rock :mrgreen:

    I don't know about that. I think cooking is like playing a musical instrument. Anyone can improve upon their skill but much of it is dependent on raw talent. I've been trying to teach my wife for a decade or so, to no avail.

    Or possibly she pretends she cant cook the way I pretend the washing machine is a mystery to me.
