Seems like yinz had a great time. Its been years since I've been to Yingge for pottery.
As it is, we seem to regard it as a positive objection to a reasoner that he has taken one side or the other. We regard it (in other words) as a positive objection to a reasoner that he has contrived to reach the object of his reasoning. We call a man a bigot or a slave of dogma because he is a thinker who has thought thoroughly and to a definite end.

yeah, sounds like a cool idea.

Next time post it in the Events forum. I am sure there will be others that would have gone, but don't cruise the parenting forum :cool:

I noticed that belgian pie graciously left out the successful throwing of large pots by a certain individual, so as not to further humiliate JD. :lol: :bravo: Very classy, Mr. pie!

Don't say I'm classy yet ... this was the final 'quick' cut ... I'm planning to do a full feature 'director's' cut ... :roflmao:

It was nicely done, though. I envy your talents.

Just checking the video now.. Amber slept the whole way home too, so it was nice and peaceful in the car!

It was great to meet everyone, although I got far too involved playing with the clay together with Amber, so didn't spend much time socializing. It always helps having a face to put to a name. Hope to see you all again soon. The guided tour of the upstairs museum by BP was enlightening, a very knowledgable chap. :bravo:

Great job BP!

I just want all to know that the big box of failed pottery was NOT all mine. :D
