  • Good luck with Irene!

    With all the gloom and doom about the potential destruction that Hurrican Irene could wreak this weekend I'd just like to wish all members who live in its path the best of luck. Batten down the hatches, stay safe and please don't do anything silly like venturing outside at the height of the storm to take pictures. Leave that to those folks who get paid for taking such risks.

    And if you do suffer mishaps I sincerely hope they are only minor ones

    Good luck and stay safe!

    Nice thought Jim.

    All the very best to everyone anywhere near Irene.
    Experience is something you don't get until just after you need it.

      We are very happy that Irene went right past us and headed north but not happy about all the folks in the path. The good news is that the storm is weakening and is now on the edge of becoming a Category 1 storm instead of the Cat 3 it has been.

          I also hope that everyone in the path of this hurricane has either left or has batten down enough to keep from getting hurt. Nothing is more important than your self and your family...Be safe

            Thanks....She is hitting us in NC as we speak. Glad she lost some punch over night. Looks like flooding will be the big issue.

                According to the latest she's headed right over us here but is expected to weaken to a tropical storm when she hits southern Connecticut on her way up the CT River Valley. There's nothing I hate more than a strong wind storm in the middle of the night as I'm surrounded by some pretty massive trees; it's hard to sleep with one eye open. Hope everyone is prepared and stays safe as she blows through.

                  I hope all you folks in the path of Irene come through with little or no damage to yourself or your property. Been watching the news over here and it appears she is weakening, I certainly hope so. It must be a scary time for you.

                    I went with a girl named Irene in high school . Didn't last long . Hope this storm is short and sweet too .

                      She wasn't short or sweet!! Rain lasted for 24 hours!!! Wind lasted about 30 hours. We're safe and no damage or flooded basement. Hope everyone else is ok.

                        SLRA does a “spot” check. He’s lucky I’m keeping him around. It was free with a purchase at harbor freight. When people pick up a basket to examine, usually first time customers, they inspect everything for glue ups, drill holes, etc. of course, I don’t think half of them know what they are...

                        Back in my days of collecting antique pottery, I used to carry a a small blacklight unit to check for repairs that were invisible to the naked eye. I never knew that it could detect glue spots. That's a lot neater than using mineral spirits, or waiting until a sealer coat of shellac reveals missed...

                        Being a diet controlled type 2 diabetic, I check my glucose. Checked before my shot on Tuesday it was fine. Checked on Wednesday after a morning walk expecting to see less than 100 and about fainted when it read 158. Every check has been 150 or more since then. Started reading and yes, the shots can...

                        Not yet Jim. The corners of the baskets to appear to be drawn by hand or just a bad copy. The price might go up. Thanks Linda. For some reason I really like doing layered baskets. And my customers like buying them. Bruce read a blacklight shows glue spots. Guess what he bought me from harbor freight...
