Happy Birthday Jim - Forno Bravo Forum: The Wood-Fired Oven Community



I'm Peter Reinhart! Ask Me Anything! Monday, February 15, 2016 7:00-8:00 pm EST

To kick off our AMA feature, we have invited author, chef and master bread maker and host of Pizza Quest, Peter Reinhart, to be our first host! Peter will be in the Forum on Monday, February 15th, from 7:00 - 8:00 pm EST. If you are unable to be online during the live session, you can post your questions in the sticky post. Peter will answer those questions during the live session on February 15th. You can view Peter's answers to your questions as well as what happened during the live session in the session thread.

Ask Me Anything New Forum Feature

You will notice a new forum at the top of the main page called, "Ask Me Anything". This forum will be used for live one hour "Ask Me Anything" (AMA) sessions hosted by people who are knowledgeable in different areas pertaining to wood fired ovens. How it works:
- Each AMA will have a "sticky" thread where the community can post questions they would like answered during the live session. This will allow everyone to participate even if you can't be online for the live session. These questions will not be answered by the host until the live AMA; if you need an answer quickly, you should post it in the appropriate Forum area for the community to respond.
- Another thread will be posted for the live AMA. Registered users who are logged in during the live session can interact with the host by asking questions and receiving responses.
- The live thread will remain in the AMA forum to view after the session.

We hope you enjoy this new feature! Please let us know if there is a topic that you'd like to have as an AMA and we'll look for a host!

    Hey Jim,
    Happy Birthday, and if the information you entered when you registered on the forum is correct, this is an important one that has a "0" in it.

    Have a great day -- I hope you do something special.

    Happy Birthday Jim is seconded, with gratitude!

    (M) I also wish you a very happy birthday, Jim (CanuckJim) and want all Newbies to know that your numerous postings ( Total Posts: 670 (1.44 posts per day) are at least equal in their quality as quantity.

    (M) Thanks, also, for the individual emails you've sent me about bread baking. It's great to have a Pro. in our corner; not just in baking but in building as well.

    (M) So, now that I've mentioned your avocations, tell us about your vocation as a "free lance writer". ____

    (M) Does the etymology "free lance" stem from the knightly mercenaries? __

      James, Marcel,

      Yep, this one definitely has a very large 0 in it. Funny, don't feel any different than I did yesterday, though: tired. Did the special dinner number with Wendy and her daughter, Kate, yesterday. Kate's thirteen and taller than I am. Whoops.

      Marcel, you're right on with the mercenary part. Today's translation might read hack. I've worked for ad agencies , publishers , car manufacturers , and everything in between writing ads, brochures, annual reports, video scripts , ghost writing books, books of my own, etc., etc. I've even written short stories and magazine articles. Tried my hand at fiction, but I can't find an agent with a heart and a brain. I'm still at it, but other things, like ovens, have taken over.

      Thanks for the greetings, guys, exactly what I would expect from this Forum.
