Jon, my new stainless steel set is Dansk and it's even more substantial than I expected. Definitely not flimsy, as I feared when ordering online based upon reviews but not actually getting my hands on a set first.
I have a set of Cutco that seems to stay sharp forever (one of their bragging points - you can send it in for sharpening if it needs it.) I bought that in college when I considered the possibility of sales as a way to pay my way through school, and quickly realized it was a dodgy process. In today's world of celebrity chefs, there is probably a workable angle one could use.
I may go ahead and pull the silver (plate) out for holidays, depending on how many are here (if I don't have enough settings then I use my father's inexpensive stainless steel that he had a couple of dozens of everything for his Song Circle potluck hosting.)
I slept late and missed the ideal time for walking the dogs this morning, but tomorrow I'll be up early and will walk them when I return home from a cat sitting gig. I realized this week that I'm leaving a substantial benefit on the table if I don't get myself to the gym and take advantage of the Silver Sneakers program through my retirement benefits. Fitness type exercise is sporadic when the weather is so hot.
