thanks, but I'll pass

I've deleted the name to protect the innocent. This is copied exactly as I received it in my email....I find it kind of funny and it makes me want to skip/kick in the air about nixing it this year:

"Also, there has been some confusion regarding the costs associatedwith registering for the ________. Your $35.00 MembershipInvestment provides you also with access to ONE of the following: asite at which to show 1  8 works of art, submission of one piece inthe "Original" Juried Show OR submission of one piece to the OutdoorPublic Art Juried Show. For every additional item beyond this onething, there is an additional $20.00 investment required. Forexample, if you want to show at a site AND have one piece submittedinto the "original" juried show, that would cost $55.00 ($35.00 +$20.00). Similarly, two (2) pieces in the "original" OR outdoorpublic art juried show would cost $55.00. Also, two (2) pieces in the"original" juried art show PLUS exhibiting at a site, would be $75.00.Similarly, two (2) pieces in the outdoor public art juried show PLUSexhibiting at a site, OR showing two (2) pieces in one juried showPLUS one (1) piece in the other juried show would be $75.00. Next,one (1) work of art in one juried show, two (2) works in the otherjuried show, AND exhibiting at a site would be $95.00 Finally,showing two (2) pieces in BOTH juried shows AND exhibiting at a sitewould be $115.00. All of the above examples assume a membershipinvestment of $35.00, which is what an individual or a business with1  2 employees would pay. The membership investment schedule forfirms with 3 or more individuals is somewhat higher, please see theRegistration Form."

*I was a straight A math student, however, I always flunked all story problems. The above at least to me, reads like a story problem and I get lost half way through it. The answer? 'thanks, but I'll pass' I'm too stupid to even understand this.

well one thing is for sure. it's poorly written and I'd do like you - 'no thanks.'

You still get an A.

No, I correct you. You are too smart to fall for this!

Hang in there and don't stop being you.

It's too long to send into Jay Leno or David Letterman. Too bad. IT's a complete joke...

This feels like it was written by someone who is in their head way too much -- very robotic -- does not play well with other children. I would pass too. I'm sorry because it sounds like it's something you had wanted to do.
Take care.

Friday New Art Finds.  ha.  I'm posting it early because my blog needs something on it other than ME.   I present to you Louis Pons.  Born in Marseilles, France in 1927 and apparently still going strong.  I have little to no information on this artist, he appears to be elusive on the net.  I recently watched a strange little movie called 'The Gleaners and I' by Agnus Varda.  She had a blip on him and I set to searching for images or information online only to come up with a small wikipedia blip and a few sites containing his work.
No matter, it's enough just to see his work.  This site if you translate it, appears to have the most information of any:
Primary studies at Marseilles, school of the Carthusian monks.
School of the Trades, Endoume, Marseilles. He learns the trade from fitter bu…

dairy delight

I was perusing craigslist and saw this:

Disassembling antique barn..
All interior components that ran dairy farm.
Silo made from Ceramic Blocks. Many different uses for the ceramic blocks.
2 sets Hay hooks.
Cow stantion.
Watering bowls.
Cow dividers.
Louden Hay Dryer app. 1940's
Block and Tackle Pulleys

I started SALIVATING. I checked the site out they linked to and saw it was an antique type store/house and worried they might be off the charts expensive. Not even sure they had what I want, but those clocks and hay shelves I made from the watering bowls and hay dryer equipment are to me, precious materials and I want MORE even if I have to buy them. I'm starting to get excited, so far the emails come back saying yes, they are those bowls that I want. Yes, the picture I emailed showing the hay things I have are indeed what he has. He has about FORTY of the cow bowls at a price I can live with, my one concern is they aren't rusty or crusty enough since the ones I…
