How do they get those pictures to come out

Saturday, November 08, 2014      2 comments

I've been watching some of the painting shows on public TV today and it is amazing how they come up with the pictures they do. When some of them start out it doesn't look like you would ever be able to tell that they are doing a landscape or wh... Read more

My garden isn't that far along since it kept snowing off and on completely through May, so it wasn't planted until the 1st week in June (seems to happen every year). Last Sunday I went to a class on extending the life of your garden and I am g... Read more

Sunday, July 20, 2014      3 comments

Yesterday I read something by a person who doesn't feel that anyone who cannot find a job or cannot work because of physical problems deserves to eat. It was from a person who determines whether a person deserves to have a job and, from her pos... Read more
