Good start. Just needs more hood time to learn the rhythm.

I might have had a child or two if I was assured they would want to learn a hand trade, even just for fun. Watching young people doing such gives me a bit of hope for the foreseeable future.

I did manage to learn one thing from my father, the value of patience, because he didn't have any.

A technologically advanced society would teach their children how to start a fire by rubbing two sticks together before teaching them how to use a lighter.

It is pretty amazing how having a good teacher can make a world of difference with both speed of learning and results.
