I'm Back!

When we started our move, I only planned on being offline until November 2, the scheduled date for our new internet to be connected, but my husband passed away unexpectedly on October 25 and we weren’t able to get our internet until today. I apologize to all my group members for neglecting them for so long. I’m still a bit shellshocked so it’s going to take a while to get caught up with my messages.

I won’t be able to respond to all of you who have left so many kind comments on my work, so I’ll thank you here. I will do my best to read all your messages.


It’s a bit late but I have so many people to thank for the attention they gave our work in October.

Thank you to those who voted for these as top ten winners for October!

This exhibition is based on an open workshop, in which I participated, where members translated member digital artists’ images to our respective favorite medium in traditional, photography, or digital.

Non members, as well as members, ARE welcome to view all of the works on show. So I hope that you will click the show banner, above, and follow the link to view my fellow exhibitors. The works are presented “

May Features and a Challenge Winner

First of all, I want to thank all of you who have commented on our artworks and faved them! You are the reason we are here. Your kind words have encouraged me to continue learning how to use my camera and try photo manipulations as well as find new ways to incorporate fractals into my art.

I haven’t been able to respond as much as I’d like to with my hosting duties expanding to 5. I’ve also been having trouble with my internet lately. It seems that the mild flooding of the Stillwater River has caused problems with the underground lines that CenturyLink uses. It’s made our phone almost useless too. The crackling noise interferes and makes it difficult to distinguish voices. Hopefully the waters will recede soon.

My Medical Marijuana Tee was Featured

Thank you to the hosts of THE WORLD AS WE SEE IT Group for featuring my Medical Marijuana Tee! Thank you also to the buyer, who wishes to remain anonymous, for purchasing one of these Tees on May 14!

A few years ago, Montanans voted, with an overwhelming majority, to legalize medical marijuana. Since then several distribution centers have opened across the state. Recently, our state legislature decided that we were all morons and that they needed to protect us from ourselves.

They passed a law, Senate Bill 423, which bans distribution centers and punishes any doctor who prescribes to more than 25 new patients in one year. This seems to make sense at first glance. However, it doesn’t take into account specialists, like doctors who treat cancer patients. This will force them to choos…

January 2011 Features and Challenges

I haven’t been around here much in the past week. I’m fighting some really nasty viruses and trojans that have affected my ability to use the internet. I don’t know how long it will take to get rid of this problem. All the antivirus and antimalware scans have found viruses, but not the main trojan that is downloading them to my computer. I’ve finally been able to identify the trojan but, since it’s a new one, nobody has come out with a cleaner for it.

Thank you to those who voted Christmas Gingerbread as the FIRST PLACE WINNER in the New Year; New Challenge hosted by the Yellow Two group.

Thank you to those who voted for “Artisan” as the FIRST PLACE WINNER (tied) in the MY Favorite, Art & Tees challenge in The Ultimate UF5 and Beyond group!

Happy New Year!

Happy New Year everyone! I hope you enjoyed and are still enjoying your holiday. We had the weirdest experience last night. I was riding with Jimmy to the laundromat and we spotted what looked like spotlights, reaching into the sky, all across town. It was especially bright over the Plum Creek Mill. We didn’t know what we were seeing at first. My first thought was that it was the Northern Lights. Jimmy thinks it was an atmospheric effect from the ice fog. We noticed the same phenomenon, to a lesser degree, with the yard lights when we came home. I tried to take some photos, but they didn’t look like it showed clearly. When I called Brian and told him about it, he went out side and noticed the same thing in Lakeside, which is almost 30 miles away. These beams only showed vertic…
