    If you can believe that moving images and sound, can fly through empty space across the universe and be seen and heard on a box in your living room ?.. then you can believe in anything.

    I can sympathize Ken, my shop in Cannon Beach is cold, dark and damp this time of year. My solution was to move 2500 miles southwest where my dust collection system is the trade winds and at noon today it is sunny and 29 degrees C.

    I hear you. I don't like the short daylight. Even though my shop isn't too cold and it's well lit, when it gets dark outside I lose momentum. Winter solstice is my favorite day of the year knowing daylight will increase each day.
