    This is something that I didn't hear about ten years ago and I think I should have. Your opinion???

    SOMETHING YOU WILL NOT FORGET………..
    UNSUNG HEROES WE DON’T HEAR ABOUT, AND MOST OF US DIDN’T KNOW ABOUT AFTER 911 BROUGHT TEARS TO MY EYES, TRYING TO UNDERSTAND HOW THESE PEOPLE MUST HAVE FELT SEEKING TO GET OFF THE ISLAND AND THE FEAR AND ALL THE UNKNOWN TO ALL, INCLUDING THE RESCUERS.

    PEOPLE COMING TOGETHER IN TIME OF CRISIS…….

    YOU COULD NEVER PLAN FOR THIS ……..EVER!


    This is what Americans are all about.

    I know everyone has been innundated with 9/11 stories but this is one I had never heard before.

    A 9-11 story I hadn't heard.
    Good people!!!

    When a work lifts your spirits and inspires bold and noble thoughts in you, do not look for any other standard to judge by: the work is good, the product of a master craftsman.

    Thank you Chuck! Wow. It is a shame that we can't keep that kind of cooperation going. We saw bits of this on the local new here in New York but I had no idea of the scale of it.

        It was all new to me too. Everyone I have told about it say the same. WOW, when did that story come out? I don't know why not, it is a great story.

              Ever since I was a young fry and started sleeping with all those sailors I have loved sailors ever since. This video just gives me about 500,000 more reasons to love sailors!

                Some of the older books were that way too. It's unfortunate that the printers don't take into account what those pages are for! So sorry to hear of your disappointment. However, I will have to check out that book---I didn't even know there was a circular scroll saw designs book. Share some of...

                Many patters in it I like and I'm sure I will make several BUT Fox Chapel's printing of this book absolutely SUCKS. Most of the patterns are printed so near into the binding that it is impossible to either scan to .PDF or use a copy machine. I will have to cut out each pattern separately or cut off...
