    All Skills Have Limits

    I have recently been building a shelf for my basement workshop. It is a large, “L” shaped shelf with pegboard incorporated into it for hanging tools and packages.

    G.K. Chesterton’s Colorful Quotes

    Gilbert Keith Chesterton was an English writer, Christian, theologian, philosopher, and critic. He was born in 1874 and died of congestive heart failure in 1936. I first learned of this man through the British film series, Father Brown, which was referred to me by my mother and is based upon a character created by Chesterton. It seems that G.K. Chesterton…
