Creating Art Textures for Painting & Design : Art Textures: Plastic Wrap Backgrounds
Bright, colorful paintings and murals inspired by Ukranian heritage. "Muralist, photographer, painter, music video creator... Maya Hayuk prefers to simply call herself an artist, because under that moniker she has the freedom to work in whatever medium she wants at any given time.... Etsian Tara Young met with Maya first in her Brooklyn studio and then in Braddock, PA to talk about Ukrainian crafts, drippy paintings and working to revitalize depressed communities."

Imagine this artwork I found on flickr on a cardboard box. Start by painting the whole box black and cut a hole for head and arms. Then paint a blue scene on front depicting an aquarium and add fish, seaweed and other decorations. Glitter might be fun and bright.

Reid to Obama: Sorry for 'no Negro Dialect' Remark
Short and to the point clip of Harry Reid sharing his attitude that: "I Don't Know How Anyone Of Hispanic Heritage Could Be A Republican."
Kinda curious why? Would the racism get thicker if he described why he thinks Hispanics need more social programs?
https://www.marcorubio.com/donate/ On August 10, Harry Reid said, "I don't know how anyone of Hispanic heritage could be a Republican, okay? Do I need to say more?" The next day, U.S. Senate Republican candidate from Florida Marco Rubio responded to these remarks on Fox News' "Fox and Friends."

Interestingly, they didn't bring up that the modern education system that is failing our kids. It isn't just high school standards that have dropped. Literacy of College Graduates Is on Decline. "It's appalling -- it's really astounding," said Michael Gorman, president of the American Library Association and a librarian at California State University at Fresno. "Only 31 percent of college graduates can read a complex book and extrapolate from it. That's not saying much for the remainder."
It could very well be that some "less-educated" older Americans that went to public schools before the decline began in the late 60's-early 70's have a higher level of literacy than modern college graduates.
Ironically, Elton John has a cartoon roll in an upcoming movie and the preview was shown this evening. The sound was off due to technical difficulties so I heard someone behind me use hate speech with regards to his sexuality.
She was an adult, sitting there with her boyfriend or husband in a quite room and the only thing she said loud enough for others to hear all night was hateful and mean. She said it loud. Perhaps thought others would think she was funny?
I hope she learned something from that movie. But, as for me, I was reminded in real life, bullies don't always have it in their heart to create happy endings for the people they enjoy terrorizing.

1987 McDonald's Monopoly TV Commercial - Saw in my email today that Monolopy at McDonald's starting again. Back in 1987 I actually ate at McDonalds often enough that I still didn't win anything. These days I eat burgers few and far between. The only McDonald's burger I remember having for certain this calendar year was half of a cheeseburger out of my nephew's Happy Meal about two weeks ago before they moved back to Alaska. Oh, I did try a Big Mac Snack Wrap but it isn't great enough to get me eating beef regularly.

I'll definitely read the Portuguese Irregular Verbs: A Professor Dr von Igelfeld Entertainment Novel (the first in the series actually) and At the Villa of Reduced Circumstances featuring this character!
When my friend recommended Sausage Dogs I didn't realize at the time that this author wrote The No.1 Ladies' Detective Agency (Movie Tie-in Edition). She's the kind of reader that when she tells me to read something, I just do. I was immediately pleased to discover that Alexander Mccall Smith was the author of the books on which the HBO series I watched was based. I have so many books on my to-do list a trip to the library is in order.
