I've offended the gods!

There cannot be another explanation for all my bad luck. Here is the list, most of which has happened in January:

  1. Sick twice in the last 2 months.
  2. Mechanic stripped the oil plug on my daily driver causing oil to leak all over my driveway.
  3. Smacked my head so hard while working in the garage that everything went gray and I fell to the floor
  4. Stuck at home twice because of ice on the roads (I live on the side of a mountain)
  5. Everyone of my cars needs work (I currently have eight)
  6. While replacing a toilet in the bathroom I dropped a bolt down the drain.
  7. A power outage at work fried many of the UPSs and I ended up working on the weekend
  8. And the boot to the groin? Jury duty for the next month-and-a-half!

Okay, once you write it down it isn't so bad. Come on February!

Keep Learning

So this week I learned a new chainmaille pattern called "Celtic Visions Star." It's not too hard and by using anodized aluminum we can create all sorts of colors as well as keep the prices down. These pendants, as well as all the other jewelry we make, can be purchased at our booth (BG Customs) most Sundays during the Jefferson Biz Market just off Route 9 near Charles Town, WV in the Mountain Community Center (MCC).
