And a great thank-you to Hanuman - the amazing Monkey king!
Thanks for all you do :slight_smile:

An illuminating post, very relevant for me, because for the past two
weekends I’ve attended a class on starting a small business. When the
discussion moved to networking, and I heard how little many of the
others had to say, and how in the dark they were about some aspects
of the businesses they wanted to start, I realized just how much I
have to thank Hanuman and Ganoksin for. It’s not possible to put a
price tag on the scope and value of shared here.

Thank you!

WOW! I knew the site was amazing and that I learn so much every day,
but I had no idea how big it was! You do amazing work - thank you
for keeping access free. I truly appreciate it! I love the thought
behind the name and the logo. Thank you for all that you do!!!

Best wishes,
Shelby Raymond, Artist & Lapidary

This site is great. I learn something here every day!

One thing I would love to know is: how do you correctly pronounce
Ganoksin? Is it GAN-ox-sin or gan-OX-sun or ??? Because I don’t know
how to pronounce it, I usually just call it Orchid.

I thank you for this wonder treasury of metalsmith and lapidary
facts, lore, hints, and tips. And I thank you especially for the
direct access to all the great minds who frequent this site and are
so generous with their time and talents!

Diana

[edit]

The correct pronunciation is GA-NOK-SEEN
