Many of you I recognize from LJ’s, I still thought I should introduce myself. I mainly joined to showcase some of my Glass work that doesn’t belong on Lumberjocks. Feel free to check out my website. www.californiaenclosures.com
I live in my shop right now thanks to a poor economy and I am looking for a P/T job just to make sure rent is paid. Hopefully things will pick up soon here! If your a lumberJock living in your shop is a dream come true, If your a struggling new business owner it can sometimes be a nightmare!!

Welcome aboard, Chuck. Glad you moved over. We need to get this site going. I live in my shop also, but for different reasons. Have fun and post away.

Thanks guys, I appreciate the support. I still want to help anyone I can too, even though I don’t have much to offer but prayer right now.
60% sounds about right Mr.T and I fear it getting worse too, I feel bad for a lot of people, especially those with kids. We’re Americans though damn it and we’ll pull together just like always and get ourselves out of this mess! And we’ll still find time to help others in need cuz that’s what we do no matter how bad it gets or what the rest of the world thinks of us.
As much as I hate to say it we need times like these to renew our faith and remind us how grateful we should be. The true character and strength of a person or nation shows in times like these!!!!
