    Thanks James for doing this!

    When I mentioned that I had mixed a lot of my pieces up in a bucket, I forgot to say that this is useful on two levels; that it provides a useful starting point for finding a random piece (as opposed to looking through individual bags, which in my experience isn’t as effetive), but also when I’m searching for a piece, I often find another that I wouldn’t have thought of that either works better, or is useful somewhere else.
    I also “store” ideas I have by putting a few pieces together to remind me and leaving it on the edge of my desk for inclusion at some other point (table scraps too)… This was the case with the ship in the distance in Castaway t’ Neverland.

    @Jordan – Well, as I said, there are more specialised people out there now in the main areas I build…speaking of which, when was the last time we entered a contest together?
