...And we're known worldwide for our windmill fetish.

Looked interesting,although the discoball was a bit too much Burning Man festivallish for my taste.

Re: goji berry, advice needed please

Nothing useful to add,other than my pretty failed shi-take log.

small coal forge and anvil,the ability to speak French.

Working on most of the above,although that French is far from getting there... :lol:
