Just realized I complimented the wrong person about this web site. I think it is great and would like to do something similar for wood carvers.

B&V has become become one of the largest firms in the world now. I was a Senior Environmental Scientist in their Environmental Science and Permitting Section of the Power Division and prepared environmental reports on domestic and foreign clients' projects, mostly power generation or transmission related. Doing environmental studies in Southeast Asia was fascinating!
