    Don't forget to use the shovel smooth side to burnish in an instant. I used that tool for over a year. its a great tool. I just wish I could have sharpened it easier and I would still be using it.

    Joseph, so you would not recommend it since it's difficult to sharpen? (i was thinking of ordering one)

Went to an online site to buy some materials for "Magic Mud", ended up splurging on a Mudtool sponge and Do All Trim Tool, and a bevel cutter...

    I did well through the venders exhibition. No brushes this year. BUT the new diamond tool veneer got me. My new set of diamond tips were back ordered and arrived yesterday.Now I can finish getting the wedding off the word fired pieces.

    Diesel, I'm glad you like the trimmer. I haven't had a chance to use it yet, but after watching some demo videos, I just had to buy it.

Working on a design for an "Anti-Gravity" workspace mat. That way any dropped tools could be retrieved without bending over. Alternately, I could just use those things kids have to attach their gloves to their coats...

    I have one of those grabber things. So far I just use it to grab things that have fallen behind my kick wheel.

Made a couple of ceramic Jack-O-Lanterns for the front porch. I love pumpkins as decoration, but I like carving them less and less each year. This will solve that problem.

Homecoming Week at school, which means dress up days for students and staff. I did a wheel throwing demo today dressed as Mr. moneybags from Monopoly.

    I believe you've one-upped Mr Leach throwing in his 3 piece suit. I haven't seen images of anyone throwing in a top hat

A heads up, to those up North. There are several kilns and wheels up for bid on Govdeals. Also, for anyone in Arizona, there is a front load Paragon kiln.

Ummm, did anyone lose some posts? I made a couple comments last night and this morning, and they no longer exist. Unless I'm imagining it all. Is this something to do with the update that was mentioned a while back?

    Thought I was going crazy there for a minute. I was wondering if I said something the administrators didn't like.

    LOL I thought the same thing as Denise so I reworded my post about insurance ... I thought someone saw it as a sales push for Progressive insurance (you can NOT sell insurance across state lines unless you are licensed in that state)

A mug a made five years ago, for my brother broke a couple months ago on the handle. I saw it in person this past weekend. It was not at the attachment point, so not sure what happened.

    Also, I still really like the glaze combination I used, but it's a little "heavy" and the foot ring too sharp. Live and learn...

    You make it sound like cats ever stop shedding. Our's gets blocked out of my work shop, when I have a bunch of things going. She is too nosey, sheds everywhere, and steals my sponges.

A freight train derailed nearby, no major damages. But they spilled some sodium bicarbonate and soda ash. I wonder if they need help cleaning it up?...
