Hello, I know I'm not really new, but since It has been over a year since I was online and could visit regularly, I figured I'd reintroduce myself. My name is Joe, though I'm using joseff as a screen name. (for some reason, the name Joe is always taken). I am a self taught blacksmith, having inhierited some old equipment that once belonged to my graet uncle and namesake. Unfortunately, health issues prevent me from practicing my skills, so I'm not currently active. However, coal smoke is in my blood, I love the smithy more than just about anything else, so I want to watch, listen, and learn. I often refer to myself as a recovering blacksmith.
