(I should have posted this yesterday but I just didnt get on the computer...)

Ladies, when wearing a short corduroy jumper dress, do NOT ride your bike down main street ESPECIALLY if your seat is very low and peddling causes all of us poor innocent passerbys to see things we never in our life wanted to see. And yes, this habit tends to form among those wonderfully "crunchie" young women that come from all over to stay in Burlington. Dont get me wrong; I admire your "freeness" and dream of the days when I can go without washing this mane of hair but please respect my need for tidiness and lack of desire to see either your poor laundry habits or your lady parts.

This has been interesting. Computer trouble to reinventing the entire site; Im hoping all will be running smoothly very soon. So although right at this very second, no one can access my blog from my web page I have decided to carry on. Who reads this anyway?! (Why wont blogger let me start a new paragraph right now????) Anyway...Im very happy to report that although the new house is still very much a jumbled mess, my new studio is organized and I have been painting quite a bit lately. And I have to say it makes me very happy. As I work on the new site I just wish I could take better digital photos to post for everyone. I always get the flash spot or the pic comes out a little tilted to the right. Any suggestions? I have a great camera and I can take some hella black and white pics of other things but when it comes to my artwork Im thinking I have a user issue. Now I cant go any further without asking everyone to say a little prayer as the efforts to assist the devastated people in LA has finally gotten under way. I wont go into how pissed I am at Bush and FEMA and I wont say how sick I am of hearing people say they are disgusted by the lack of response only to follow that comment with a sad and stupid joke about the situation. What I will say is I find the whole thins so amazingly upsetting. I cant imagine the frustration the people hurt by this natural disaster must feel and I dont dare say I understand how scared they must be. I cant even imagine how scared and upset my friends are; I have friends that have their entire families and life long friends in New Orleans and I just dont know what to say or do for them. They dont seem to want to talk right now and I dont blame them; I also do not know what to say when we do talk. All I do know is that I am thinking of them and praying for them. Back to painting; I will be listing one on ebay to be auctioned off and the proceeds donated to the releif efforts; they have a special catagory on the ebay home page; if you havent already been there take a look a buy a little something. Its the very least any of us can do.
