It is sad to hear that people who seem to be fine in many ways

trade/art to a hookers activities. After all we know what
hookers do ...they screw people outa their money.

No sour grapes for me tho. Just another reason to get on
with it and go to jewelers school. What an eye opener for me
to learn that you all do so well.
Welcome to the Wacky World of Metal!! (I'd still like to know
who it is that does so well, maybe they will share their secret
