Oh these blessed and cursed computers. the new version of Thunderbird has me perplexed and two days late in getting my column out to you all. This issue of ShortCuts may sound a little (okay, maybe a lot) like a travelogue and a bit like a proud Nova Scotian. However, it is all about a pair of very talented Nova Scotian's who have a great business going for them. we have an excellent book on carving Netsuke. Don't know what that is? We'll tell you! And, we test a product that you will say has been a long time coming! Take a look!
