I just hit my 20 year mark with the company. For this, I received my choice of anniversary gift. You go to a link and they have various gifts you can get depending on which anniversary it is. 10 years ago, I got a set of Henkels knives. 5 years ago, I got a GPS which I gave to my now wife because she was always calling me asking for directions. She lost the GPS so it was a bit of a wasted gift. This time around I got another set of knives. While I got 13 the last time, this time I only got 7, but these are larger and a higher quality of knife. Included was a steel to sharpen the knives with and a pair of kitchen shears. The same set sells on Amazon for $299.95. If I make it to 25, I get an even fancier and higher quality set.
In my younger years I worked as a line cook for a year when I lived in Iowa. The Chef taught me the value of a good Chef’s knife. If there is only one knife you are going to get, it should be the Chef’s knife. You can cut, chop, slice, dice, whatever you need. It is a tool of the trade, what...

Butler and chauffeur to Rex Hunt, governor of the Falkland Islands at the time of the Argentine invasion Don Bonner, who has died aged 87, was the butler and chauffeur to Rex Hunt, governor of the Falkland Islands when the Argentines invaded on April 2 1982. As the sun set on Government House, the fiercely patriotic Bonner lowered the flag as usual, but then raised it again on the flagpole, saying: “I’ll shoot any Argie b------ who tries to take it down.” The only remaining member of the staff at the residence, he sat for hours with Hunt’s 12-bore shotgun until the Royal Marines’ commanding officer politely remarked that he seemed very tired and suggested he return to his cottage across the road. The next day Bonner donned his chauffeur’s cap and declared that if the governor and his family were to be expelled he would drive them to the airport in the maroon taxi that served as the official car, rather than in the Land Rover proposed by an Argentine officer. Hoisting the governor’s pennant on...
