I'm retired and keeping busy with woodworking and volunteering. I'm board president for a great organization Rebuilding Together North Central Florida in Gainesville, Florida. RT does critical and emergency home repair for low income and elderly home owners using volunteers and donated materials. Check it out at:

www.rebuildingtogetherncf.org

We are an affiliate of a national organization. Check them out at

www.rebuildingtogether.org

There may be an affiliate in your area looking for skilled volunteers like you to help out!

By the way, that picture of me is in Sligo, Ireland in front of the law offices of Argue and Phibbs, a real law firm name! Check out the history of it at www.sligotown.net/courthouse.shtml. I went to law school with a fellow named Abbott. We should have gone in to practice together as Costello and Abbott. No one would have gotten the joke! (Did you know Lou Costello's real name was Louis Francis Cristillo and there is a memorial statute of him in Paterson, NJ, featured on the Sopranos twice? Costello is an Irish name, not Italian. Seriously.)

Welcome to Lumberjocks. The projects are an inspiration, the information is priceless and the people are supportive. The only problem is, the site can get addictive.

God Bless
