As a frequent contributor I am sharing a little. I am a 60s yr old medically retired man with a T.B.I., and tremendous amount of time on my hands !

I was blessed to learn of and play with rocket mass heaters, and then to assist Ernie and Erica Wisner at a R.M.H. Workshop/presentation over an
extended weekend! -And Now, Thanks to PERMIES.com I have a new way to use a lifetime of skills to Again 'Give Something Back' to this Vibrant
community!

This has also given me a new mostly positive outlook on life (at least on good days )and my health is better !

Working.with our membership, has been fun,interesting, requiring me to marshal my thoughts, I know that my opinion can only carry the weight
that my fellow members are willing to give it !

I HOPE that I can help other members to find their voices and strengths in these Threads, promoting those voices and 'free speech', showing
proper respect to " Every thing I learned in Kindergarden !"

Its time for my nap now !!!

For the Good Of the Craft ! Thanks to every body ! Big Al !

The old grouch usually makes me smile and you are not the only ~sixty year old person with TBI who I have learned a lot from. If you have the time and motivation to experiment and the willingness to share then hey, that is a benefit to us all and hopefully to you as well.

Al, reading your posts I wish my (supposedly) non-traumatized brain worked as well as your brain,
