merrie60us: so practical and talented
norajean_sf: but that's 6 years every day. Some folks
only get to clay on the week end, aren't driven by the
demo requests, so I think I might have covered a
little more ground being able to focus on it a lot.

practical and talented ...

needed to find faster and easier ways of doing things

not out there, like the mini bread
