    I found a good website for anyone interested in ferrocement...on my list of things to do!

    FYI - Did anyone see the 30 Homeland Security guys running around with their M16's and armored vehicle in the Kmart Parking lot this a.m. ? I called the news and the sheriff - didn't know anything but said people from Vista called in too - was happening there also!
