I think it's really easy to forget they exist, too. I know I do, then have to laugh at myself.

Don't you hate it when you don't bother to quote the post you're referring to and then your post rolls over to the next page and makes no sense at all on it's own?

And don't you hate it when some yahoo points it out before you have time to realize what happened and edit your post to include the quote of the prior post?

I think you're referring to young men who aren't complete boneheads. Or you could be writing about your testicles. Or Baptists. Or turn signals. Or chili dogs.

I bought some pen making supplies today. Not that I've actually been in my shop in months to actually make something. But I have the parts now.

That's good fun, right there. I have friends and family that have been carrying my pens for many years. It's a cool feeling when you see one in their hand.

Last night we dropped by the coffee shop inside B&N and there was a young lady being tutored at one of the tables. I eavsdropped just long enough to hear "the square root of nine is three". "She looks a little old to be told that", I was thinking.

Anyway ... The latte and pumpkins scones were good.
As thus we sat in darkness
Each one busy with his prayers,
"We are lost!" the captain shouted,
As he staggered down the stairs.

We had some mandatory training last week. It consisted of an emailed PowerPoint presentation. No place to sign anything saying you'd read it. No instructions to let anybody know that you'd read it. I was less than impressed. I read it, but I can't for the life of me remember what it was even about, let alone the content.
In theory, theory and practice are the same. In practice, they are not.

Well, its not really about the training; its about certifying for HR that you were trained. Its just a box to check off.

Ordered a couple chunks of briar from VT Freehand yesterday.

I'm pretty excited.
I'm what some CPS'ers have called, "Better than advertised".
