    If you don't take pride in your work, life get's pretty boring.

    Rule of thumb is if you donít know what tool to buy next, then you probably donít need it yet.

    I dream a lot. I do more painting when I'm not painting. It's in the subconscious.

    I see that this is the lowest number so far.

    And it very scarry to realize that there are now just about three times as many people sharing (and abusing) Mother Nature's gifts as there were when I was born.

    Look, my youngest just turned 8. I'm already feeling old enough without things like this going around!
    There's usually more than one way to do it...

    Okay I bit and tried it....

    When I was born, I was the:
    2,327,113,120th
    person alive on Earth
    74,903,511,367th
    person to have lived since history began

    only 11,550,352 later than Frank...

    and not to put too fine a point on this, but for it to me more specific and more correct, we need to factor in the time of the birth.... I'm sure there were a lot of babies born on the same date as me, but maybe fewer at the same hour.... I was born early in the morning, just after sunup... my parents could see what I looked like, but kept me anyway...

    My parents taught me to respect my elders, but it's getting harder and harder to find any.
    If you go looking for trouble, it will usually find you.
