Bee Stings

Ever wonder what to do if you get stung by a bee or bit by a wasp or any other kind of bug.  Usually you don't know what it was that got you, you just know that it hurts like the dickens (being polite here, this is a family post).

Woodturning Lessons

Interested in learning to turn wood, or becoming a "Woodturner." Contact Ed Pretty in Langley, BC for more information.  Never turned before?  Doesn't matter.  Turned a bit in high-school and haven't touched it since?  Doesn't matter. Turning already, but want some pointers?  Whatever your needs, Ed can customize a program for you. Perhaps only one day, or maybe three.  Maybe you want to do a family or friends group. He can do that too.

Click Here to connect to Ed's website for more information.

Ed Pretty lives in Langley, BC.  If you live in the Lower Mainland, Greater Vancouver area, Fraser Valley, or even the state of Washington, check it out.

Ed Pretty - Langley Woodturner

Ed Pretty is a woodturner in Langley, BC.  He does amazing artistic work.  He's been turning since he was a kid.  His work has progressed over the years from salad bowls to incredible forms of art.  I refer to him as a Wood Artist rather than a Woodturner, but either will do.

He is also very crafted in turning for production.  If you need your spindles replaced on your staircase, he's your guy.  Or you have a special knob that needs to be replaced on an antique dresser and you just can't find one anywhere, he's your guy.  Pretty much anything that can be turned on a lathe, he can do. Even potatoes if you want curly fries :)

Keep up with Ed and I on Facebook:  Click Here  You don't have to sign up for Facebook to do that.  If you want to join the group, you'll have to be a Facebook member.  The group is called Ed's Woodturning.

Another Reason To Always Wear Protective Gear.

There was a motorcycle accident on Highway #1 in British Columbia yesterday in the HOV lane.  Our son-in-law, Derek was right there next to the bike when he went down.  The fool wasn’t wearing any protective clothing, only a t-shirt!  He suffered severe road rash and I’m sure there were some other injuries to accompany the rash.  His bike landed on top of him and Derek had to pick it up off of him. One can guess that he probably has some burns to go with the rash. Protective gear would have protected him from that as well.

That prompted my newest post. Click here for the full post Always Wear Your Protective Gear
