        aircraft grade aluminium dosen't usually tarnish and you can create some really nice pattrens with a sanding disk and it polish up to a brushed finishes and if you can get it treated it will never rust ( i work in an aircraft factory making parts for planes) if this is an help
        while i knit i think

            There's no limit to the number of times you can recycle aluminium.
            It's never too late to gyrate!

              See even my hubby is into recycling! He has to be in this house! I've got Anya and Tara trained too - I asked Tara to take something to put in the recycling and off she went with it - bless!

                Its good that they are going to grow up with recycling.

                I was hearing reports on Jamie Olivers attempts to get youths to eat good food, its failing.
                I just thought, aim for the youngsters, age 10 or less, I think teens are a lost cause.

                  Maybe it's because he's piled on the weight recently.

                    heheh, I do find that odd, chefs who are a bit tubby.You think theyd know what to eat to avoid that happening.But then again, good food is there to be enjoyed.
