  • Good News!!

    Some of you are were aware of my girlfriend, Betty's, brother being diagnosed with leukemia a couple of months ago. He underwent a series of Chemo treatments and all the brothers and sisters were tested as possible bone marrow donors. None were a match. He is now in remission and over 200 donor matches have been identified worldwide. Our local volunteer fire department granted us the use of the fire house yesterday for a benefit where we raised well over $5000.00. In addition to the auction and raffels we had four different Bluegrass bands who donated their time and talent and several individual singers. Betty and I want to thank all of you who kept Robert and the family in your prayers. Faith is a powerful medicine in and of itself and your friendship and spiritual support have been a significant contribution to this outcome. Give yourself a big hug from Bett' and me!!! I'm going to try to design and build a nice sign or plaque for inside the fire house and welcome any input and ideas in that regard.

              I wasn't aware of the situation but I'm delighted that everyone's pooling their talents and helping out. Fingers crossed for the happiest of outcomes !

                I did that with Creative Woodworks. But when Bruce's group had their monthly meetings and swaps, somehow or other the ones I didn't buy ended up here! I keep all my holiday ones separate. But I also look at other patterns and think how I can reuse it. But sometimes that is just too much for my brain...

                Since I refuse to subscribe till they do something about the patterns in the pull out. They even made the DVD tough to print patterns.

                What I do is look at the index of the book on scrollsawer.com and if see something I might want to cut I go to Walmart and check out the book. If I like...

                Absolutely everyone here has made valid points. That's part of what I've liked about this group.....different view points and different ideas. And we respect the diversity. You people rock!

                I too miss Bob Duncan. I do not think anyone from FC has taken over that role at least on this forum. If they have I am not sure who. Like Betty, I owe a lot to FC and this forum. If it was not for them and this forum I would have probably turned my saw into a boat anchor years ago. Oh how I looked...
