    God grant me the senility to forget the people I never liked anyway,
    the good fortune to run into the ones I do,
    and the eyesight to tell the difference.

    Great videos Jeff!

    But, if you are going to build a FireFly you should at least wear a brown coat!

    Sorry to say,Jeff, but you typo'd your website in the first 20 seconds of the video!
    It flashed by as "Kudzcraft.com", dropping the second "u"

    Oops.
    There's usually more than one way to do it...

    I will have to go back and change that. Of course that means deleting and uploading a new one. So it will just have to wait.

    Here is #3. Watching these I realize just what a talent ad-lib is!! Maybe I should work up a script or at some points to hit before hand.

    I'm in the same boat (no pun intended). Just haven't had the time to sit down and watch them all. Keep 'em coming.
