Hi Dick, I wish I'd have known you were up here. Naperville is a short drive from here.

On my page, under my name and address is a link to change my picture or to change my my theme. You should be able to update your picture there.

Do you see a box on the top right hand side of the screen with your name in it on your page? What happens when you click the settings button? There is a way in settings to upload a picture there.

I guess the stand vs. sit issue does not apply to that instrument you're playing.

Hi. Yes, I remember you. Nice to see you here. Hope you are well! All the familiar faces are showing gathering at the new site.

Hey Dick, Welcome to the Ning website. It's pleasingly interactive! Hope you are well!

I've loved curly maple since I worked for an artist back in high school. He made intricate wooden inlay designs in boxes. I love it, but it's a pain to turn and, in my case, use hand tools on.

I've got an order in to Amazon for Ring the Banjar. For a newbie I understand the learning curve is great. I hadn't even figured that on the shields.

After a few machine mis steps, I have gotten a copy (of the Gumbo Chaff book)to Mr. Tim Twiss, who has cleaned it up a bit, and should have it available to share.
An application to him should get you a better copy than the one I could supply.
Sorry I didn't reply earlier, but getting it sent (to Tim) distracted me, I'm afraid!

Hi Dick,

Yes, I'll be happy to try and post a larger version of the photo on the Harpers Ferry thread. Colin was the young boy and Cynthia Connolly was the woman from Arlington. Other than that, I don't know most people's last names, either, but I believe Melinda was going to send out a list with everyone's contact info.
