Happy birthday Mr Fogg.


Thanks for evrything you have done for our craft/art/addiction/compulsion.




Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate

Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure.

It is our light, not our darkness, that most frightens us.

We ask ourselves, who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented and fabulous?

Actually, who are you not to be?

You are a child of God

Your playing small doesn’t serve the world.

There’s nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won’t feel insecure around you

We are born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us.

It’s not just in some of us; it’s in everyone.

And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same.

As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others.

Happy belated birthday don, my net has been out about a week. Power took out the power box to the modem when it came back on the morning after it went out.


So that means your birthday is the day before mine =P

December 12th here.


Happy belated birthday to you as well Stephen.


I got a kick out of Sagittarius being a fire sign, since a lot of the things I enjoy doing involve fire.

Then I was reading some other site, and according to, I think it was some chinese zodiac info, my element was metal.

Interesting how so much of the stuff meshes.

Thanks again. I have been lurking more these past few months, life has had lots of changes and twists, but I get on every day, several times a day and check in with this community. I have to say that I get great satisfaction from it. I expecially enjoy the fact that we have so many young smiths working so hard at the craft. It is great to see the progress in the work.


I enjoy seeing the new work and especialy enjoy it when you take the time to share your knowledge. We have had so many threads that are a resource for learning the craft. Thank you all for sharing so freely, it is a wonderful model for how the world should be.


Let me take this opportunity to wish you all the best of holidays.
