I sure disagree with this one! I understand that there are rules and I will abide.
I completely enjoy this site and strangely find myself thinking of yall as friends. That is really weird since I have only met 2 members of this site in person. I find myself on this site numerous times a day. Most everytime I sit down at the computer I check what is new.
Thank you to any of you that may deserving.

I changed wireless providers and now have the iphone and it allows checking this forum to see whats going on with other peoples adventures or trying to learn how to make something. For crying out loud I bought a thread injector because of this forum, (hahaha). Should see my wifes face when I open up the cabinet to start making something . She calls me Mr. Stewart.
