.....I hadn’t noticed until today that I’ve passed the 1000 post mark. I seem to be averaging about 8 a day. That means I’m an LJ addict, I’m sure. Who cares I like it here. Interesting stuff being made all the time. Good blogs to read, Cozmo’s ‘Why do you do what you do’ question in his blog especially.

No shop time today as I’m absolutely shattered after yesterday’s hiccup and the third in a row night with no sleep (not connected, I’m just not getting any shut eye). Brain seems active all night. At 3 o’clock this morning I was dreaming up the ‘Candyman of the visually challenging’ strap line and planning future projects in my head. Felt good at the time. Now sadly flagging. Will catnap whilst I can.

Glue-up on the SC patterns, tomorrow. Keep an eye out.

Be seeing you.

I don’t know how you can ever sleep, thinking up those designs is probably a big part of it. They mess up my mind just looking at them for short periods of time. Makes me dizzy.
Fun for us having you around, very interesting ideas and abilities.
Hope you feel better, take care…..............

well if you are going to sleep then have a good long relaxing sleep
not so sure this is going to be good for us even thow our braincells will relax in the meantime
I´m afraid that before we know it we will be running like a gasping cupple of wulfs chasing
our brains that try to follow you at the same speed but all our efforts will be in vain.

Woodenfrog – a place for woodworking addicts to go? You’ve already found it. You’re here.

Briefly surfaced for a pint and a pie down the local pub with Sue. Now I feel sleepy.

Congratulations on your milestone! Just think of all the people you have helped with your support and teachings. I agree with you that this place is quite addictive. I can’t wait to see what everyone is working on and I love ‘visiting’ with all the LJ’s here. Your contributions are a great asset to this site and I know for myself I look forward to them every day.

Have a good rest and enjoy your time off. It will help you be fresh to tackle what tomorrow brings.

I can’t wait to see what the next 1000 bring! :)

It is definitely easy to get addicted ;-)) Ever wonder what you did before LJ? I do!
