The Mae West in Me

  The Government spending scandal in Las Vegas reminds me that people love a good party.  Last week's Mad Men showed business being conducted in a classy sex house. " Why don't you come up and see me sometime? " The world's oldest profession is alive and well.  Still underground but… Read full post »

Mike Wallace Loved His Work

Mike Wallace said that he loved his work more than his family when he was being interviewed by his grandson.   I would like to think that he was devoted to his family but that kind of love is different than love of work. He told of having acne as a youth… Read full post »

     After my boyfriend died last May 27 I just shut off his phone and got thirty copies of his death certificate.  I sent one to every bill and request that came to the mail box and pretty soon they all stopped writing.  Except his jury duty notice. 

Last month… Read full post »

What is Art?

 

   I sometimes hang heavy objects up in trees so that they seem to defy gravity and spin around reflecting the sunshine.  I do art that pretends to be the sun.  Some might say that stucco is boring cement and has no place in the Art World.  But I… Read full post »

Painter Kinkade Dead at 54: KARMA

  I ferreted out the story right away.  I know that when someone dies at 54 there is more than a simple explanation.  He either ascended to heaven directly because of his Christian saccharin painting style or he self destructed like the rest of us because of his lifestyle.

Sugar and Sex
