    When Mark and Old Lady retire from potting, they should do a double act.

Surprised that I sold a lot of my Spanish pottery collection to my neighbors. That was the big seller today.

Doing a ^6 witness firing test. I have a Orton AF3000, that is finishing at 2194 F, so I test. I have also disconnected all the switches, timers and cone sitter. Now it is direct from the elements to the power cord to the Orton control wall box. Hope it works.

I am finding it liberating to get rid of so much I don't need, haven't seen in decades, and will not have room to store in our next house. Much of what doesn't sell will go to Library, charities and the dump.

    It was great moving off our boat because there was no furniture, bed, dishes, or accessories to bring with us! Just clothes and some personal items. Letting everything go is awesome!

Spent the last two days cleaning the studio. Everything is shiny and smells like apple-scented Fabuloso. Today I spilled some glaze on the clean floor and was like "NOOOOOOOO!!"

    I paid $175.00 for broken down, A82B Paragon. $300 is a steal. Bricks falling apart and I need new elements. I dannae if she can take any more, Captain! You can't mix matter and anti-matter cold! I need a scotch, Scotty. Aye Captain.
