    I would like to thank Phong and Muirgheal for being such wonderful hosts. The Wife and I had a great time, and many thanks again for the patience with our son. Hopefully we can hold another gathering at our house once the remodeling is done.

    Im right across the valley from Phong. I'm over in Troy Hill so it may be possible for me to stop by. Iron out the info and i will run it past the wife to see if she wants to go too. We are both beginners at maille so it should be fun to get together.

    Is Batman Really A Super Hero or Just A Super Human?

    It is not what one can do that makes them Super, it is what they DO that does.

    You have my deepest condolances. To roughly quote someone who i cat remember at the moment, but... "No parent should ever have to bury thier own child." I have lost family members to cancer myself, but i could never imagine the pain I would feel to lose my son.

    Making a new website... opinions?

    there is a slight color dicrepency around the texas logo on my screen. May be due to the fact that it looks like a photo and true black is easier with the computer, the pic is a very dark gray, near black.

    Making a new website... opinions?

    The pic looks good to me, maybe a bit small, but I use a large monitor. Having it as a link to a larger pic would be a good idea in my opinion. Side note, left sidebar image. The ring pattern looks like it went to repeat again on the right edge of the image, you can see the tips of the rings. They stood out to me with the dark background around it. Wasn't sure if that was mentioned above and just wanted to let you know.

    Metal reactions w/ skin

    I have been asked to make a bracelet for a very young child (19Mo) and wanted to know if the AA and BA I was going to use would cause any types of reaction with her skin. The mother does have metal allergies and I dont know if they are hereditary, and not sure if aluminum is a common allergy metal. My major concern is just the fact that she is so young if contact with metal would be an issue, If so should I go Niobium to help prevent any reaction. It will only be worn on occasion, not like I am making a Permy for a kid. We also offered him lifetime extensions for the bracelet as she gets older. Any input would be helpful, dont want to make something that will irritate the childs skin.
