My god, they are doing it again!

It appears this administration cannot learn from past administrations previous mistakes. Apparently we are going to work another exchange program with the Chinese nuclear weapons scientists. We did this in the 1990s, and suffered one of the worst cases of falling on our sword espionage in our history.... WTF? This is a play we have seen before... In fact we have acted in it before. We know how it ends. What hubris makes this administration think it will end any differently than before?

Oh wait. Maybe they don't want it to end differently. Maybe they, you know, want something less than the best for our country. It sure wouldn't be e first such instance. Or tenth.

Creche 2011











I look forward to putting up the creche every year, and this was no exception. I have had a bug of some kind, so it is a bit late, but it is up at last! And I feel human again, though I am not quite over whatever it is. I was hoping to get a cave made as the stable but maybe after Christmas. Until then, the building with the donkey in it will have to do. One of these days I will make a wooden platform with roads and sand and all on it too, but right now, I have no place to store it, so cloth is the fallback. I also want to paint more of the figures, especially the bases, so you see less of them and more of the figures themselves. All in good time.

Mermaid Murmurings


So, we are having this fun thing at work. Nearly all of us are making a stocking (whether we celebrate Christmas or not) and making them reflect our personalities, and then we will display them up front, where customers get to guess who made which stocking! And this is mine.....

She has a body that is three layers of fabric, the skin, and two iridescent lames for her scales. Then I added sequins as more scales, and German gold sticker and paper snowflakes. Her tiara is a zipper, as is her hanger, and her tail is Angelina fibers (of course). A little threadpainting for her hair, and some colored pencils for her face, and voila! A mermaid to hold little treasures!. She was fun!

Great Flash Mob!

Came across this great video at Neptunus Lex, who got it from Loralee's Looney Tunes. Looks fun and easy, but reading the blog, I would say, easy really isn't anywhere in sight. Still great fun though!
