Now, I’m recovering from writing my last two blogs and dealing with them after. I think I need a lough or at least a smile.
I’m not going to give any clue until you give up.

But the winner is Patron for the first part of his answer.

I did not even get a chance, but I gave up on making a million a long time ago. The other version is the only
way to make a small fortune at woodworking is to start out with a large fortune, and unfortunately this seems
to apply to life also, but that is OK, I am having fun playing in the wood workshop.
