I already emailed you offline, but I will state this note publicly.
I read with delight, the responses of having you back up on Orchid.
You represent a part of us, or the "group mind", at Orchid. Like
many of us, you took the plunge into unknown waters and we watched
your successes and setbacks. Even during hard economic times, when
you needed to look after your family and leave your passion of
jewelry, your bench waited, silently. The great thing about tools,
is that they stay put, ready to be picked up and used again.
Many new Orchidians have joined this group while you have been away,
but they will soon come to learn what us old timers have known.
Your posts are always a source of passion and enthusiasm, and I for
one, am VERY glad you have returned.
