    1. Born in france but dont speak french. Unless you count the bits I learned while being in french class at school.
    2. Lived in California for 2 years during Jr High. Nice climate, way too lotsa people. Had to wait in line to look at sea lions?
    3. One Tattoo, old school of the dragon that almost killed me. He even had my sword. Shit that was close.
    4. Guess I gotta put that I have lived in 4 provinces. In Australia now so have short roots. BC is home. Vancouver Island. Someday will be back home.
    5. I have a for real "happy place" on my farm. It is on a ridge overlooking the creek and about 1/2 way up the big trees that start on the edge of the creek. Its like having a tree house with ferns and Douglas fir trunks filtering morning sun. I can watch the ducks and eagles fly along the creek and be above them but still under the canopy. There is a fire pit so I can have a campfire and morning coffee. It was sad to leave that place.
    6. I work as an engineer so I have no real people skills. Only went to college for 1 1/2 years. Funny where you can get to when you can do a job but dont have the "paperwork to go with it.
    7. I get confused when people ask me if I am left or right handed. USUALLY... tactile things I do left handed. Anything requiring strenth I am right handed. Maybe its just cause no one ever found used baseball mits for lefties when I was a kid. Right eye dominant. Found that out shooting bows.
    8. I am not religious. But I do believe all living things have a soul, that souls don't need gender, or race or even species. Souls all come from the same place and are made of the same thing. Peace out man. Imagine, thanks John.
    9. I am not a hippie. My hair is way too short. Some of it is MIA. I always wanted a mohawk as a kid. Back when I still had my youthfull idealism. Has anyone seen that by the way? I wanna be a hippie, then I saw Easy Rider. Yep the world really does hate what free men represent.
    10. I have cultivated the ability to not worry about things I cannot change. The hard part is sometimes others see that as me just not giving a fuck.
    11. Cookies, ah cookies. This is for the guys. If you like cookies and milk ,ya gotta listen up. Been married 25 years and this has helped. When a lady brings you some cookies n milk dont eat all the cookies, drink all the milk, burp roll over and go to sleep. I know this seems odd, so here is the secret no one will tell you but me. Make sure she gets her cookies too and she will be more likely to wanna have more cookies later.
    12. I have logged with draft horses. I even learned how to shoe them. The new Island highway cleared a ton of small wood that flooded the market, that was the end of that. I love the smell of warm horses and harness on a frosty.
    morning.
    13. Bakers dozen, good luck eh, but just for me. I have been blowing glass for about a year now. No farm in Aus so needed something to do. Dont watch TV find it just bums me out. Should call it the "bad news". Took a few lessons at a for real studio doing proper furnace work. Way cool. Torch lets me rip it up at three in the mornin without heading to town. I have never actually sat with someone working glass on a torch unless you count the bead working lesson I took for one afternoon. I love glass. Youtube has been awsome and I am very thankfull there is an online community like this to grow with.
    Cheers!
    They really do say "No Worries" here as part of normal conversation.....

    1. I've had a full beard since I was 16
    2. I just recently realized that I wear plaid/flannel shirts pretty much every day even in the summer
    3. My first tattoo was a cow, I got it on my calf. It took me about a year to realize that I have a tattoo of a calf on my calf.
    4. I got sucked into a tornado while riding a golfcart and was thrown around 70 feet.
    5. During #4 I fractured my L5 and haven't been able to bend backwards because of it for over 2 years.
    6. I have a tendency to completely lose my shit when the weather is anywhere between grey/cloudy-heavy downpours and rain.
    7. A little over a year ago I was getting shit faced at the bar, a person I had just barely met told me to quit my job so I could drink with him daily and be his apprentice. So I quit my job. Sadly the studio went under after I busted my ass getting it up and running. I really can't complain though because it planted the seed and I got alot of good knowledge from it without even realizing it at the time. I borrowed $1200 and set up my own studio 6 months later.
    8. I got sponsored by a local skateshop when I was 15. Then I discovered girls.
    9. I hate the people who work for Hortica a workmans comp company based in Illinoise more than anything in the world. They are the scum of the earth.
    10. It might sound cliche but glass kinda saved my life. It was the first and still is one of only a few things that have given me any fulfilment in my life for a while now. To check the kiln to see what it has for me is the reason I get out of bed in the morning.

    1. I am afraid of the sark, anything with more than six legs, and true love and commitment

    2. I have social anxiety. It's why I am always drunk when you see me at events.

    3. I have a third nipple

    4. I drink too much...can't blame it all on the social anxiety

    5. I am only 1/4 as good and productive as the advice I give...physician heal thyself and all that

    6. I love blue collar men. Which also means I am happy being poor

    7. I hate money so much I spend it so I don't have to deal with it

    8. I love cars...old cars...and getting greasy. I can rebuild an engine without help

    9. My favorite people are those who aren't afraid to push limits and be themselves...I am a freak. You should try it.
