    Happy Birthday!!! Hope you get lots of toys and fun stuff... maybe a really good book about craftsmen and their creativity entitled "The Craftsman" by Richard Sennett! http://www.amazon.com/Craftsman-Prof.../dp/0300119097 Forum members who like to read, this is a GREAT book. I highly recommend it. Have a good day, Bill.

    Enjoy your day Bill. Have great one and I hope you get something nice for your shop. Recession or no recession there is always something even a small something that one can get for the shop.
    cheers

    Thanks, everybody!

    Yes, I'm taking the day off! At least from the University!

    Jeff, it's the story of my life: a day late and more than a dollar short!

    The General Counsel's office baked me a cake yesterday: german chocolate! Yum! No toys this year: we're broke! Besides, because of previous birthdays (Jointer, Lathe, Festool, etc...) I'm out of major tools to buy...

    Thanks, MJ! That's a very cool book! Anyone who wrtites something called "The Culture of the New Capitalism" has my interest! Cool line from the review: "The template of craftsmanship, he finds, combines a "material consciousness" with a willingness to put in years of practice (a common estimate of the time required to master a craft is ten thousand hours) and a strategic acceptance of ambiguity, rather than an obsessive perfectionism."

    I've got a few thousand hours to go before I get there...

    Thanks, Art. Doorlink says to say "Hi" to Heather!

    Thanks, Rob. I've got a gift card left over from Christmas, maybe I'll head off to Harbor freight and pick up some small thing...

    Thanks, Jim. When I blew out the candles, I just wished for one thing: that this time next year, I'll still be able to keep a roof over the boys', and Doorlink's, heads. Everything else we can deal with...

    Thanks,

    Bill
