Just FYI —

Our workshop space has been cleaned out.  Nice spacious area.  Not dusty.  

The workshop is used for individual projects as well as community ones.  Not 
overwhelmingly so but it does get used.

The problem we’ve had is that we really don’t have a person male or female who 
is a devoted workshop user who could bring order and leadership to the space.

Early on we had a woman who wanted to put her glass blowing kiln in the 
workshop but was shut down by people being afraid of an accident.   And since 
we all bow to the possibility, however remote, of something tragic happening … 
we don’t do anything or rather we restrict others from doing something.

I wonder how the communities that have LIVESTOCK on the premises manage to deal 
w/ the risks and hazards of four-footed LARGE mammals?
