Hello Alex,

While searching the web for information about Singer sewing machines, I stumbled across your fascinating web site. You are truly a Renaissance man. Not only did I find information about sewing machines, but also poetry, stories about England, from everyday life to war history, and other titbits like information about Ca Mau porcelain.  I especially enjoy the illustrations and pictures you have included.  As I manoeuvre around your web site I keep finding new things to read and enjoy.

Regards,

Phyllis in NJ, USA
