Jeez, I was making arrangments for it to go to Madison Ct since Mundy thought the drive to be a bit too far. I'm encouraging Mundy to join craftweb. He's one one the old guys who went to China and now has a building filled with batch chemicals he wants to dispose of.
You, as you know have the lead monosilicate in your possession. You just can't get it anymore except in Shanghai and good luck getting there to do it. Then you have to import it, which you can't.
So I'll be able to make gold rubies and the dense black for rod. I will sell some but much I'll put away for my casting future.

Our governor just closed the state down until May 4th. MB and I don't notice much since we never go out. You taking in the lead is an enormous help. Thank you/ He has a bunch more stuff.

Indeed ! I look forward to a visit. Mundy is a cool guy... I enjoyed talking to him quite a bit. I told him that when you come down, he should come up. He is your little brother from another mother.

Since this conversation doesn't seem to be private, I'm curious what other things he wants to get rid of.

There was a boatload of barium soda ash and potash which he indicated was pretty hard. I don't know beyond that. the 350lbs of the lead is a lifetime supply for me but the soda and potash don't keep well.

Indeed,
Eben described him as being my younger brother from a different mother.

I don't know quite how to take that.

I just wish you'd make Port Salud.

Take that as the two of you are very similar.

It was the different mother part that baffled me.

Proverbial if you will. It means you have so much in common you could be brothers but obviously different mothers. Personally Iíve always been fond of that saying.

I failed at deleting the thread. Now it has it's own life.

I do like Mundy.

Being stuck at home allows me to tap into my inner curmudgeon.
