Rob reads the chinese script on my broken Ceramic chopsticks

I love ceramics.There is something very artistic about ceramics .Ceramics are like art you can use everyday.
I also love chopsticks,any chopsticks, ceramic or otherwise.
Needless to say, when i chanced upon a chinese artisan family  selling ceramic ware, I just couldn't resist at all.
Ended up buying a large platter and some ceramic chopsticks.
Speaking of ceramics, Most ceramics that i buy end up breaking months down the line-all due to  my superfast dish-washing style(no I don't use the dishwasher-just hand wash and air dry-saving energy!)
The ceramic chopsticks met their end at the sink.
I still retained a piece of the ceramic chopstick for the sake of memory.

FASTFORWARD zzzzzz screetch halt at 2009

I get on twitter.
There I meet @weirdchina aka Rob.He is an entrepreneur..Originally from the US but now resides with his wife and kids in China.He actually is raising kids in China.I find the task of raising kids a tough job in itself but raising kids in china..boy! tougher?.
He is a very positive person .I always tell him that he reminds me of Jay Leno and The guy from this sitcom 'King of queens'.Ya know,'The jolly go lucky' classic American family guys..LOL
Rob constantly pitches the cause of China, saying how much of the world's future lies in china.
And I agree, primarily because ; the Chinese trump everyone else by their sheer numbers
You see, every fifth person speaks Chinese.But again,,I pitch for the USA as always.. I am like that.

Just a week ago,while I was cleaning up my kitchen( I might need to move soon, so , a lot of cleaning up going on in my home) and I came across this broken piece of ceramic chopstick inside one of my spoon holding containers.
And suddenly I realized that there was a lot of script written on it .Chinese script? Again, here , I only presume it is Chinese, coz I bought it from a Chinese artisan family that made the ceramics themselves.
And suddenly I was reminded of Rob..I thought.."Hey, Why not make Rob read this script for me"
So, I asked him if he will read it If I upload a pic and Rob agreed.
So.once Rob first comes here and reads the script for me .I shall add a postscript to this blog, with his translation included.Take over Rob!

Post script dated Dec 24 2009
Rob says that the script is Ancient chinese and difficult to decipher. However he says that if he manages to decipher it he shall let me know.
Thanks for taking the time, Rob!
