Sautuday, as you all know I was at the Sun Prairie Art Fair and as soon as 1:00 rolled around the crowds seem to drop off. Of course it was because of the World Cup right? Well, maybe not. But anyway as luck would have it I did not have to miss the two goals scored and the one big brain fart by the England goalie.
It's all right here in Lego form.
I think I might start offering note cards at Art Fairs. I was asked by Sharrow Drug to do note cards but the logistics and price points made it more of a hassle then anything else. I'm still looking into this as half the Art Fair people hate note cards and half love them. Making conversation for a $3 sale over and over can be wearing. One thing I learned is that the question "How did you do that" needs to be answered 30 times an hour. Sort of wears you down a little. Art Fairs are not physically tiring but more mentally tiring.
With that said I have been working on a major piece - my vision would be this would be on a 30x46 Gallery Wrapped canvas. I'm combining two images into one.
The funny thing is that this image was SO large that I could not save the finished product because I did not have enough RAM in my computer LOL
Have you heard about that dude that was cleaning his boiler in his furnace and got his arm stuck? He was there for like 2 days and could not move. So, what did he do? He asked himself "What would MacGyver do?" Well, he figured MacGiver would saw off his arm, stick it in a freezer, call 911 and they would reattach it once he was rescued.
He was rescued and he could only cut half his arm off because of the pain. The thing is that his efforts actually did save his life. Once the rescuers arrived they had to cut the rest of his arm off and the hospital said that sepsis (another name for blood poisoning) was setting in.
And all this because he had dropped a vacuum cleaner attachment and was reaching to get it.
What's this brightness in the sky?????? We have had 4 sunny days this month and 12 of days of rain!! How's the grass in your yard look, rather tall? Our average high is 3.4 degrees below normal so far this month. Columbus and Madison were in the 0.70 inches of rain area but many places near us had 2+ inches yesterday.
Speaking of the oil spill.
I'm not blaming BP at all on the oil spill because I bet if ANY, of the Oil Companies had this accident the results would have been the same. No one was prepared. The actual BAD thing about the accident is not the accident but the lack of being prepared how to handle the accident. Drilling is NOT the bad thing, mishandling the accident is the real crime here.
The thing that is asked is how could this have happened in the first place. Sadly I can understand totally how it happened.
It's not that the Oil Companies are evil and careless. It just that there is SO much competition and it's all a risk/reward thing. For years and years the companies are forced to choose between risk and reward. The problem came when their risk always worked. They had to many victories. To many times they tossed the risk dice and it worked.
It's like speeding up when a yellow light flashes on - it's risk vs. reward, run the yellow light and hope no one is coming the other way. You have never had a major problem in the past right? But it's still a risk.
The oil companies ran that yellow light over and over and never had a major problem so why not run THIS yellow light.
BAM!! A car t-bones BP.
So while many people are all upset at oil company carelessness I can see how they got careless. It's still wrong to be careless but think about it, every time you run a yellow light you are risking your LIFE that no one is coming the other way. Most of the time you win!
So while some are saying stop drilling I say drill but make sure you have a back up plan for accidents. not any of the "geez, now what do we do" crap that seems to be what happened. It's not BP - I have to think that if ANY of those oil companies had a solution they would have come forward and be a hero. But none did did they.
I bet they do now!
