    Tobho had learned to work Valyrian steel at the forges of Qohor as a boy. Only a man who knew the spells could take old weapons and forge them anew.

    Nice roses.

    What is that yellowish syrup-like material? (I doubt it is lemon meringue pie filling ~ joke.) Never saw shell-molding done before, even if I've attempted - and failed miserably - commonplace lost-wax a few times years ago.
    Ouch! That stuff's hot!

    I always found that to be true. As soon as i learn how to do something well, I lose interest and want to learn how to do something else that I can't already do. It's been that way all my life. Production work is like slavery to me. I tried nine-to-five jobs for a few years when I got out of college. It was like prison. I would sit and look out of the window, wanting to be out there. (I guess I was lucky; back then we had windows; I hear cubicles don't have windows.) I quit my last job when I was twenty-three, fifty-one years ago.

    I have never forgotten an old guy who told me about life. He used to say, "Give people what they want and they'll give you their money." He also said, "Use your brain. Work is for horses."
