Microwave Pork Steaks et al

This is just a short post to say that, once again, you can't believe at least 50% of what people say in this world. I've heard for many years that meat cooked in a microwave would come out rubbery and taste terrible. Today I cooked two pork steaks and two hamburgers. I just laid them on the glass rotating tray with a paper towel over them. I cooked each pork steak for 5-minutes and then turned it over for another 5. (I didn't cook them both at once because they were each huge 1-pounders.) I think I cooked the hamburgers for a little less time. I left the microwave set on high the whole time. I was quite surprised to find that everything came out nice and tender and tasted just as good as if I had put them in the oven. So now you know. You can microwave just about anything. Raw meat is no problem. Don't listen to the naysayers. They probably never even tried it.

The Making Of A Classical Guitar

Here is a very nice video of a classical guitar being handmade in Yamaha's Custom Shop in Japan. Here they make guitars in the $9,000 price range. Absolute top-o-the-line in classical guitars in my opinion. I wish I could do this!
