I just got off the phone talking to Charles Nichols. I noticed he hasn't been around and I wanted to check up on him. He's doing better from his lung issues but the doctors were concerned that the sawdust from turning might be aggravating his lungs. His lathe is in his apartment and the dust can't get away. At any rate, he said that he is doing better and to tel the gang, "HI" and that he'll be back on site soon.
Hey has anyone gotten a little B&W icon on the lower right of their screen (near the clock) asking to update to Windows 10? I'm just curious if anyone other than me got it and is taking them up on the offer. Normally a new version of Windows is around $150, so since they are offering it free, I'm going to try it and see if it's worth having. windows10.bmp
Hey all, I just wanted to say hello to all of you, especially the newer members I have not met yet. I am still around waiting for anyone that needs anything to contact me. Whether it be fore picture placement or general questions etc. I am more than happy to help in any way I can. Recently as some or most of you know, I had been diagnosed with a throat and stomach issue called achalasia, and another issue that the name of escapes me at the moment. The first is a stricture at the stomach where it meets the small intestine. This does not allow food to pass properly to be digested and therefore only has one way to go which is up. This has been going on for the better part of 2.5 years. Recently I went in for a procedure to correct this which was to inject Botox into the area to basically paralyze the stricture and allow food to pass. This has at least partially worked in the fact that I am able to eat at least semi solid foods now and I am starting to feel like I actually am alive again, I am returning to my woodturning and life in general is finally starting to get back to something near normal. There is the last issue where the throat itself is not working correctly to pass food to the stomach. This may take another procedure to fix, but that can be done usually laparoscopically and pretty much easy to recover from. So it looks finally like we are reaching the end of the tunnel. If I have the procedure done, I shouldn't be down for more than a day or 2 at the most Anyway, that's what's going on, have a great evening and I'll see you around the forum!
I hate talking about myself too much unless it's about something I am making, or any of my problems, but I want to give you a quick update on my illness and what's up with it. Friday I will be going to LittleRock to a doctor there for a procedure called an Esophageal Motility test, not sure what it's all about but we'll see. I am not even sure what the result is supposed to be but I'll find that out too I guess. Anyway that's what's going on with me. I'm actually feeling quite good today like i have got some actual energy for once so i have been on the lathe most of the day. I'll post a few images shortly. If you follow me on Facebook, you have probably already seen what I had been working on today.
John Moody posted a topic in General WoodworkingFriday turned into a busy day for me and I just realized today that I didn't put up a post for the weekend. I had therapy Friday morning and then had to be a VBS presentation for my grand children. So it just got to be a little busy. Still no shop work for me but I am getting itchy to get in there. I have walked out to the shop a few times and just looked around. My two sons and my daughter in law have been working hard out there to keep my woodworking commitments going. We have put out six Big Green Egg tables and a bunch of cutting boards and a few other special projects that slid in. Today, things are a little quite out there as everyone is working on other jobs. So what is on your Patriot Woodworker agenda this weekend? Are you finishing up any projects, starting new projects, building jigs, remodeling the shop, doing home improvement, lawn work, tool rehabs, or just spending the week like me with both feet propped up and resting? We here at TPW love to see all of the projects you are working on so please share them here with us. I look forward to reading about your projects and will be waiting to see what you have to post.
Who We Are
We are a woodworking community with an emphasis on sharing and learning the skilled craft of woodworking and all of its related disciplines. Our community is open to everyone who wishes to join us. We support our American veterans and active duty, being a veteran is not a prerequisite to join. Join us now!
Of course just like most online woodworking communities we are centralized in the arts, crafts, and trades that are woodworking. But, we have another focus in our Patriot Woodworker community, we are the only woodworking community that was founded on our care and concern for our disabled veterans.
The Patriot Woodworkers are an all volunteer community, from the staff and hosts who run our online woodworking community to the members who frequent our forums, you'll find volunteers in all of us. We are not on a payroll, unless you consider the spiritual rewards gained from volunteering, as compensation.
One of the many projects we are working on is a wiki for our online community. A wiki is a great way for woodworkers and enthusiasts to share their knowledge to others, and to impart their knowledge for others to learn from, and utilize as well for their own benefit. We hope you'll consider being a wiki contributor.
