Here is a person who gains immense satisfaction from his shed, "turning it over," he says, "like personal compost." Brian is a shining example of the benefits of personal accumulation.Mark's book makes me want to do an American version. Anyone who wants to be featured in my new book, "Geezers in Garages, Basements, too!-- where old guys in America hang out and make stuff," can apply by sending me a photo of you in your basement or garage workshop. I'll share it with my readers. It is best that you use the self-timer with the camera on a tripod or table, or get a friend to take your picture so you are included in the shot. If using a tripod and your camera has manual controls use a very slow shutter speed so that the many objects in view will be in focus. We want to see what you've got! Send me images of 3 megs or less, please.
