Rare Art Form of Internal Plastic Carving

"Holdingford man carves artwork into cribbage boards" was the title of the
nice article in the St Cloud Times Citizen News today on Norb Kollodge's internal plastic carving of cribbage boards. If you have never seen Norb's work, these are beautiful works of art! He uses a high speed Foredom Drill with special bits that kind of look like drill bits except they come to a point. With the work mostly done from one entrance hole for each flower. With little to no allowance for error. This is a rare art form, not many people go through the effort to learn.

Calling with Skype

This is off my normal topics it is to cool not to pass on. I really don't mean for this to sound like a commerical but, If you haven't hear of Skype it is a basicly free internet phone service. If the person you want to talk to also has Skype installed, you can talk for free. Case in point, my eldest son is speaking at The Search Engine Marketing Conference in Australia I was sitting back in the lounge chair this morning, talking to him tomorrow (Australia is 16 hours ahead of us ). Anyway we talked for a half a hour, for no cost. Very neat ! The was sound very good quality. If the person you want to talk to doesn't have Skype or computer you can call their landline. My next call will be to Uncle Ben in England, who doesn't have a computer. It will cost 00.021 cents a minute.
