Great stuff on your blog and site. Thanks for your comments on my blog. I have a 44 coming I don't know if I'll have time to work with though. I've emailed Bull Stewart to get info on the meet the first time bounced back and I haven't heard anything from the second try. Again great job with your bench looks like it was a good push to finish that one.

woo HOOOOOO!!!

All hail Thorndike Pickledish. Way to go on your amazing lift. That's more than the members of my household weigh...including the neighbor's cat!

Great pics here and on the site. I liked the "dawning of the age of cholesterol" ha ha!
