OK, we're sliding toward spring and it's time you were thinking about a 
side business selling something to craft shows and flea markets.  I like 
hypertufa, though demolding is slow and unless you have a lot of molds 
it's not a high-volume businessl
Nevertheless the profit margin is good and you are more likely to get 
hit by a meteorite than run into competition.  Some repetition here for 
you folks with a short attention-span, and a few new thingsl
