Add jewelry making ti my list. The copper jewelry I have been making has been getting a huge response, strangers off the street seeing me make it and wanting a number/card/email. So I will use that to fund me to get a full bench jewelers cert, then I think I will try a gunsmithing school.

I work for lawyers, and none of them will answer this question. Does it hurt when they remove your soul?

Not sure if they remove it in school, or after you pass the bar. Let my know, eh.





You must work with plaintiff's lawyers or maybe criminal defense. The rest of us have souls, haha.

Nah, they're good folks. No criminal work, but pretty much every other practice type. Our bankruptcy group (commercial only, no personal bankruptcy) has been very busy. Business transaction group...not so much.

I'm sure you've got a soul too, I doubt that you'd be posting on here if you didn't.

Or at least you don't work for the Treasury or the Fed.

Ahem...to get back on topic, though...

I've got several packs of spinach seeds I'd like to grow in the near future. Could you post your indoor gardening tips on this thread?

It's amazing how many people take these things for granted. I think we're going to see a resurgence of the basics such as these very soon. Thanks for posting these things, Caridad.

Those jewelry pieces you showed us this weekend were very impressive! And I think that especially as other "toys" become priced out of more people's budgets as the economy continues to get worse, little things like your jewelry will take on an added personal value to a lot of people.

Do we have any musicians here? I got to thinking about it and I can play guitar and sing some.

This might be a valuable skill set if TS truly HTF. If a book is valuable for "escapist" or entertainment, how much more so a good old school "bard" type!

I've been a percussionist forever - corps style, rock, highland, African, classical/traditional, jazz - you name it.

I worked with a lawyer who was also a drummer.... That's him on the right...Jim Drnec.



He played with Cinderella for a while in the mid eighties. He plays more subdued music now, mostly with a jazz band. Pictures like this turn up now and then to haunt him.

I thought the purpose of this forum was to PREVENT starvation, Jack.

How do you become a millionaire musician? You start with $2 million.

AG-Metal,

No shot at you, just a free association thing, lawyer-drummer, made me remember Jim....

And I thought everyone would get a good laugh at the costume.

OTOH, I bet they SCORED ALOT....

OK, let's give equal time:

What's the difference between a guitarist and a puppy?

The puppy eventually stops whining.

**AHEM** OK, now that I've helped hijack my own thread, I think I see a silver lining...

One thing we tend to forget is that when the grid goes down, so do our TV and Internet access. So...what about the art of storytelling? Seems like this could make a HUGE comeback when mass-media entertainment go the way of the grid.

As much as I dislike doing it, I may start a backyard foundry. I've worked in ferrous metalcasting for over a quarter century and the idea of a hobby based on your job has always seemed rather boring to me, personally. But it would be an excellent skill to have. I can duplicate a broken casting at work, but it would be challenging to be able to do this using rather rudimentary materials and equipment.

Just curious, Cupronickel, how high does the heat have to be for a backyard foundry? I'm guessing you wouldn't want it anywhere near your ammo or fuel stash.
