Francis was intrested in everything having to do with blacksmithing. In September 1998 a friend told him him "You have to try THIS!", and logged Francis onto the Slack-Tub Pub. The only other person logged on at the time was our New Zealand chatmaster Andrew "Kiwi" Hooper. He asks, "Are you a blacksmith?"
Francis replys, "I've done a little" . . .
