The last post

When I started this blog is was to record my adventures and discoveries during my in-line felting courses with Artybird Carnforth. There were lots and lots of adventures and discoveries but now it has come to an end. After three years of distance learning and I have obtained a City and Guilds Level Three diploma in Design and Craft - Constructed Textiles ( Feltmaking ). What a mouth full !
I am not finished with felting, far from it, I am more enthusiastic than ever and I still feel the need to blog . I have therefore spent this last week building myself a website with a blog . Here I can properly show my felt work and write a related blog. This is where you can find me.
I do not want to lose any friends and readers, so please let me know if you need any help in finding my new location.
It's been a wonderful three years and it makes me quite sad to make this change but I feel I need to use this moment to move on and seek out new challenges and opportunities.
Thanks for reading this and best wishes to you all.


  1. I would like to thank the U.S. Army War College for agreeing to my request for sabbatical leave in order to write this book. I am particularly grateful to Professor Douglas Lovelace and Dr. Retro Jordans,Steven Metz of the Strategic Studies Institute for encouraging me to undertake this study and supporting my request to be given the research rime to do so. I would also like to thank Major General Robert M. Williams, the Commandant of the U.S. Army War College, and the U.S. Army War College Title 10 Board under the leadership of Dean Bill Johnson for supporting my request to move forward on this project. I must also express my appreciation to my editor at Pracger, Steve Catalano, for friendly and helpful advice on this project. "I hroughout this process, feedback on my ideas was always vital to whatever success I may have been able to achieve in producing this manuscript.

    I am correspondingly especially grateful to Mary J. Pelusi, Professor David S. Sorenson of the U.S. Air War College, Dr. Norman Cigar, and Sarah E. Womer, for useful and insightful comments on earlier versions of the chapters of this book. I owe Mary a particular debt for a number of useful suggestions and ideas throughout the life of this project. I also need to mention that during numerous trips to Jordan throughout my career, Cheap Jordan Shoes,I have been created with great kindness and openness by Jordanian friends and hosts and more recently by a number of members of the U.S. Army and Defense attache corps. I have further been fortunate enough to interact with a number of senior Jordanian and other Arab studenrs ar rhe U.S. Army War College who were always willing to share their special insight with me.

    I will always consider myself lucky that Jordanians are interested in political topics and always willing to speak to me about them. Despite the significance of this help, all mistakes in this work of fact, omission, interpretation, and speculation are of course entirely my own. jordan releases,I should further thank the U.S. Army War College for its policies of academic freedom and note that the views expressed in this hook are those of the author and do not necessarily reflect the policy or position of the Department of the Army, the Department of Defense, or the U.S. government.
