Sean commented on Denis E. Ambrose, Jr.'s group Catholic Men
"I think the argument can go both ways.  Latin is not entirely without its uses.  On the one hand, it can be a unifying experience.  In Toronto, where I am from, Mass is said in more than thirty languages every Sunday.  Many…"

Sean replied to Donovan Dueweke's discussion Any helpful woodcarving tips for a beginner?
"Practice.  Save up and buy good tools, as well as wood. Find websites of groups or people who do the kind of woodcarving you want to do.  Speaking of which, you didn't say what kind of carving you want to get into.  Are you doing…"

I am not one of Santa's elves, but at this time of year I do a reasonable impression.

My insanity plea, update,

Posted on April 12, 2011 at 12:30pm 0 Comments

A little over a year ago I posted about one of my ongoing woodworking projects-a homemade pipe organ.  I thought I would drop in an update:  I have finally completed the pipes, all four hundred and change of them,  for the keyboard.  I am now left with a decision:  Should I build fifty pipes for the pedal argan, or should I leave it keyboard only?  The pedal organ pipes would be the largest, and at… Continue

Posted on March 22, 2010 at 11:30am 1 Comment

My father. Born in Hamilton in 1922, died in Mississauga in 1996. In the almost three quarters of a century that he lived, he saw the Roaring Twenties, the Great Depression, the Second World War, the Post War Boom, the Cold War, the end of the Cold War. At the beginning of his life, cars were a luxury, and carts pulled by horses still rumbled regularly through the streets of Hamilton.

Thanks. I figure a guy who takes time to welcome random people to a web community he's not in charge of is probably a guy worth knowing.
