Comments: Hi Art ! Remember me from "Cheney Art Woodcarving" days? Great web site ! Glad to see you are doing so well. I always have said that I learned sculpting from you but that you are a much better sculptor than I will ever be. That is why I am working as a patternmaker for Atlas Foundry in Tacoma, even though I still do sculpting commissions from time to time. Your Friend, Ray Corey

Comments: Friends, I am having a problem getting the bottom of the screen picture to come on "my" screen. I have tried to increase my picture size but it still cuts off the bottom and on this particular page I only get half the "submit" words. On the "enter" home page I was only able to get in "once". I have a MAC so could the problem be with that?
