aids to dividing (was: looking for "ez vide")

If you don't want to make your own using those rusty geometry skills
you learned at school... Got a Tupperware friend or a kitchen
equipment supply nearby? There are "thingies" for cakes... Divide into
however many portions you fancy. Put your pot on top and they help you
develop your own ability -- as described by Vince. It is sometimes
worth noting, that the "slightly off" look is the most endearing part
of hand-decorated pots. Saves them from looking machine-made and/or
factory decorated.

Geometrically speaking, using a compass: measure from pencil to
compass tip and draw a circle. Using the same radius, mark off around
the circumference... DooDee... A Senior Moment... Don't remember and
my very old school compass is in The Chapel. Hum... Is it five equal
parts? Anyway, you can play around with it...

Janet Kaiser -- Just found my Accountant husband never did geometry!!
Ha! And I am supposed to be the Mathematically Idiot around here...
Twenty years together and I never knew that about him... A
mathematical blemish! It has made my day! :-)
