    Can you say CANJOS

    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.

    Well I like cash in hand as much as the next guy. However, I think you ought to have a collection of all of the different variants you've done saved up somewhere. If you had the full set it would be a really neat collection of examples of this type of instrument. I could easily see the whole set ending up in a museum some day (seriously!).

    Looking good Jay. You've been busy!

    You didn't have to eat all the beans from all those cans did you? LOL

    Cool i just love production especially when it leads to cash in hand. Dont forget the words "limited edition" or "new model" and start getting the elves ready for next year and the Christmas markets.

    I am tempted to buy a batch from you and take them to some local market to test the waters in Canada for this kind of thing. Bet these would go down well in Labrador, Newfoundland or Nova Scotia, what do you think Peter R ?

    Whats your current production rate Jay?
    cheers
