    Reason for all of the Testing

    After spending half of my life trying to get pics to work in FWW I found out this evening that I have a sick video card. I thought my 87 years had finally caught up with me. I was so relieved to find a "mechanical" problem.

    How about that. I gotta get one of those Red, Staples, "That's Easy" buttons.

    Enjoy,

    Now ho-oo-oold on thar! Those are pics from long ago and the first time I ever touched a lathe (I think I'm up to 3 or 4 times now). And yes, I was bustin-a-move . . . a move away from that accursed spinny thing!!!

    The Pics

    Hi Everybody,

    The picture selection was purely random. I just clicked on some file names. If I had known there would be this kind of response, I would have gone through and selected some doozies.

    Enjoy,

    JimB
