Topic tags/keywords: ads wood working tools machines

Well it’s been a month and a half since I came up with the idea of a website that was just for wood workers and I have held it to just that “For Wood Workers By Wood Workers”. Only one listing is for a friend that is trying to sell his house, but it’s not just any house though. This house was the home of the Blacks where “Shirley Temple Black” the child star spent her time growing up. Next door to the Blacks was the well known screen star “Marlene Dietrich” Although her home has since been taken down and a bigger home built in its place. I was amazed to find that Al Capone, Johnny Cash and a number of other well known people lived with in a stones through of me. The Mayors of Chicago & NY spent part of there winter here as well. Back in the 20s Miami was not the place to winter I am told. I wonder what made everyone switch from the Gulf Coast to the Atlantic Coast. If I ever find out I will post it on the new web site. I was particularly taken in by the detail of the wood work and architecture there are 3 photos of the home and views from the outside. So if anyone has anything to sell please feel free to list it at The New Wood Workers List http://www.woodworkerslist.com/
Take care and enjoy

Well no visitors and no traffic = take down the site and don’t waist any more money or time on something not used by anyone.

It was not meant to compete with LJs it was just a place to list and sell with a few facts here and there. I think what really killed it was the unreliably software I bought but nothing ventured nothing gained.

Thanks Jim,

Good I am happy it did work for someone. I still have the software and now that it has been fixed I may put it back up when I get a few dollars togather.
Thank you for the post
