    I had the camera in the shop today so I took some photos of what is currently in different stages. I have been sick for 8 days now so I am moving at probably half speed and my brain just does not want to properly engage. Decongestants, cough syrup and pain meds just fry what is left of my brain it seems.....

    So if the pictures or what I type is not coherrent well heck I don't know.

    Here is my main bench today.

    Thanks again for your "In The Shop" photo's and explanations. They are always extremely interesting and enjoyable. Really like the Chrysocolla at this stage and will certainly be interested in the final product. The Shattuckites look awesome and will always be interested in these GEMS. Also like the Fossil Algae as it looks very unusual at this stage of your progress. Anxious to see the final stage of the Fossil Algae in addition to all the others.

    Certainly hope you get well quick,
