    Before you criticize someone, you should walk a mile in their shoes. That way, when you criticize them, you're a mile away and you have their shoes.

    Cool. I was looking at a spam can yesterday thinking it might make a good canjo.

    Looks like fun.

    I though a can from one of those canned hams would work to make a hamdoline.

    OK, I've never heard of or seen a canjo. So I clicked on the picture, and the first words out of my mouth (literally) were "What the hell?" I was also laughing as I said it. After a bit of quality YouTube time, I now know what a canjo is. Looks like good cheap fun. Kinda like me.

    I'm with Paul and Ken.

    I'm afraid that I had the same reaction as Vaughn---.
