Hot metal

I collected panels from foundry earlier this week and a pretty good job they did for me. The original was salvaged from a church and now I have enough to complete the wall I started last year. There is something about a foundry that makes me feel like I'm involved in something 'real'. I suppose along with stone, building with cast Iron makes one think of time and mortality given the fact that these railings will be here way after I'm history......which is ok as I'm already a legend!

Beautiful!

I used to love the term we used when writing a bill of quants for installing such items - "and run with lead"!

Almost medieval!

Legend? Yup, you're a real leading light (pronounce it like the metal, get it?)

I am a white man, and I have realized that white women are scum. In a nutshell, white women are the most likely to cheat on you, to divorce you, to get fat, to steal half of your money in the divorce courts, don’t know how to cook or clean, don’t want to have children, etc. Therefore, what intelligent man would want to get involved with white women?

White women are generally immature, selfish, extremely arrogant and self-centered, mentally unstable, irresponsible, and highly unchaste. The behavior of most white women is utterly disgusting, to say the least.

This blog is my attempt to explain why I feel white women are inferior to Asian women, and why white men should date/marry only Asian women.

What was that all about??
Anyhow casting metal is a thing with roots that goes back to Roman times, it's brilliant. My worry with my "dry creek" project was that I'd get something wrong, and nobody is going to come in and correct it down the road, so I really must get it right the first time.

I'd prefer Anonymous would just stop breathing all on his own, but please feel free to intervene on my behalf :)
