Anyone who knows me, knows that I am not one to complain much but for the love of cats, what in the heck is going on around here? I feel like every time I log in something else has changed.
I don’t have a whole lot of time as it is but then to have to spend the time I do have trying to navigate this place, well, its for the birds.…

I am sure all of the changes are wonderful and for the good of the community, I have no doubts there but for me, I am feeling a bit frustrated with this place.

I just don’t get why these places do what they do…they start off having such a great site and then they decide to change.it . WTF is that about? We obviously came here initially because we liked it how it was. Call it progress if you will but I think I will just call it a real big pain in my ass.

Thank yo

Scared to Die in the 1st grade

My Daughter Haley says she is scared because she is in the first grade just like all the kids who died yesterday at Sandy Hook Elementary School . It’s one of those moments as a parent that you find yourself not knowing what to say because honestly, I am scared too. It’s like no one is safe anymore, we wake up and we roll that dice and pray that our loved ones will not be harmed. I don’t like rolling that dice and as a parent it makes me feel helpless that there are not measures that I can take to keep my child out of harms way other than home schooling and never leaving the house which is not really an option. We never faced this type of threat when we were kids going to school, we never had these worries and there must be a reason for that…. and it’s not gun control because people had g…

Photo Scouts are Searching Redbubble

Many of us spend a great deal of time trying to get our work out where it can be seen. We spend countless hours photographing, drawing, painting and processing. We click that upload button always hoping that our current work will resonate with someone enough to want to purchase what we have spent time creating.…

I know some people around here lately who have been getting discouraged , this process of create and wait seems to be getting to them. I hope what I have to say will help a bit.

Some of you may not realize how big Redbubble has become as a resource for some very well known companies out there. Everyday at any given time there are photo researchers browsing this site, looking for that something they need for their products.
Posting your work on Redbubble is an investment because th

I Want A Mom That Will Last Forever

I want a mom to take my hand
and make me feel like a holiday

A mom to tuck me in at night
and chase the monsters away

I want a mom to read me stories
and sing me a lullaby
And if I get scared at night, to hold me when I cry

Oh, I want a mom that will last forever
I want a mom to make it all better

I want a mom that will last forever
I want a mom that will love me whatever, forever

And when she says to me that she’ll always be there
To watch and protect me, I don’t have to be scared

Oh, and when she says I will always love you,
I wont need to worry cause I’ll know that it’s true

I want a mom when I get lonely, to take the time to play
A mom who can be a friend and find a rainbow when its gray

I want a mom to read me stories and sing a lullaby
And if I find a bad dream, to hold me w

Where Were You When The World Stopped Turning?

As an American, I have been raised in a country where this sort of thing just doesn’t happen… So when it did happen I was in shock. But to be honest, I am always in shock when I see this sort of thing happen anywhere in this world.
For me, none of it makes much sense because what are we fighting for?
When I look at you do you know what I see?
I see me and it doesn’t matter where you live.
I see you with your family and I have a family too.
And with your friends, I have friends.
When I see a mother crying over her child Its understandable to me because I have children. I am raising my kids the same as you are and hoping that they will grow up safe and free from the horror that we see in the world today, the horror that we inflict on one another.
Can you imagine what we could accomplish together …

I am really getting sick of this.

I understand that life cannot always be a bowl of cherries, You know, I get that. But come on.…

A week ago Thursday I watched my boss/friend/roommate of 10 years die from a ruptured Abdominal Aortic Aneurysm, right before my eyes. He was perfectly fine one minute and the next minute he was on the floor and I was calling 911. Marven and I knew he had the aneurysm for about two years now but it was suppose to be at a manageable size. Well, it grew and on Thursday July 26, 2012, it took his life. Marven was 72 years old and one of the best friends I have ever had. We have lived together for over 10 years, worked together for about 12 years, we were always “just friends” and it seemed to others a very odd set up we had here on this mountain with he, my daughter and myself but it wasn’t odd to

Robber's Fire

I just wanted to let you all know I haven’t forgotten about you…I have been a bit distracted by the wildfire that is burning near by here. I live in Colfax, Ca. and the fire is between here and Foresthill Ca. We are going on day 6 of this fire (Robber’s Fire) and I think it’s got everyone’s nerves a little rattled. We are fortunate being a ways up the hill from it but if it crosses the river we won’t be so fortunate. So far these amazing fire fighters have kept it from jumping so we are just keeping our fingers crossed. We are currently at 30% containment. Hopefully soon I will get back to my work instead of Fire watching. LOL…

Here are some pics….

This is one of the many planes that have been in the air over this fire lately, incredible what these guys and girls do. Haley really got a ki

My Cats Live Here!

My cats live here, they’re here to stay.
You don’t like pets?….. be on your way!
They share my home, my food, my space
this is their home, this is their place.…

You will find cat hair on the floor,
they will meet you at the door.
They may request a little pat,
a simple ‘no’ will settle that.

It gripes me when I hear you say
“just how is it you live this way?
They smell, they shed, they’re in the way..”
WHO ASKED YOU? is all I can say..

They love me more than anyone,
my voice is like the rising sun,
they merely have to hear me say
’C’mon , time to go to sleep or play’

then meows are said and faces grin,
they bounce and hop and make a din.
They never say ‘no time for you’,
they’re always there, to GO and DO.

and if I’m sad? They’re by my side
and if I’m mad? they circle wide
and if I laugh, they laugh with m
