Greetings from the socialist capital of America - California.
There is more than one reason they call it the 'left' coast'.

For those of you old enough to remember Chuck Conners of 'Rifle Man' fame - (Not all of you of course) Had a TV show in the '70's called 'Thrillseekers.' I was on there a number of times when I was the (simi-famous ) 'Ironman Irons' Forced to retire from hospital/building repair in '08 after a major stroke & 2 brain surgeries. The stroke was bad enough, but I had to spend 4 months & 3 days in the hospital because I kept getting pneumonia. All that time in a hospital bed just ruined me. But it's not as bad as it sounds. I can still walk & chew gum at the same time, usually. Just doing minor woodworking projects in shop (garage). Not able to do big/heavy stuff anymore. I keep trying to convince myself I'm not pretty-much worthless now, but it's getting harder and harder.

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

Hi there,
Welcome to LumberJocks… I joined the site myself just about 2 years ago and will give you fair warning, this site is VERY ADDICTIVE, VERY EDUCATIONAL, and VERY FUN…. so sit back, enjoy the ride and learn from the other LJ’s as they are a group of extremely talented people that are also very friendly…
I apologize for the late welcome but I am currently serving overseas and don’t have a lot of spare time on my hands.

Enjoy your time here on LJ and pass the word to any of your woodworking buddies about us…

Wisty

Welcome aboard….if you get my drift. I enjoy the site. It allows me to see where I fall short in certain ares of my craft. #1 is my being creative…...I have none…zero. So I’m learning. But like it says in the book….there is nothing new under the sun.
