New Forno Bravo Forum Feature

Forno Bravo Forum Community,

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.

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.

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!

    Speaking of getting older, here is an article on keep the old brain more agile as we age. I'm banking on learning a language. :-)

    Re: Exercise your brain

    I'm with ya James - I'm going to focus on English. After my game of golf today - I have that language down... I had no idea how many F's were involved, but I worked through it quite well

      Re: Exercise your brain

      I'd heard those reports before that learning a new language was one of the best brain exercises out there. It certainly doesn't come easy. Foul language I have down pat (like Les apparently. Golf does that to you!) Pig latin is next, then on to....hmmmmm

        I'm keeping my brain active by planing a POMPEI OVEN.






        That should get this thread back on the right track

          baby boomers who are encountering the signs, by turns amusing and disconcerting, that accompany the decline of the brain’s acuity: a good friend’s name suddenly vanishing from memory; a frantic search for eyeglasses only to find them atop the head; milk taken from the refrigerator then put away in a cupboard.

          I do all that already.....eek! Yesterday I walked to town and then wondered where I parked the car....it was nice knowing you guys!

                  Now that was funny SJ. I hope that logic works for my Pompeii. As long as the first brick and the last brick are in the right place, the rest can be a total mess and it will still cook a pizza without a problem.
