Landscape Photography Show13,608*LPS Event #100: Straight to My Heart* *NOTE: This will be the FIRST event using the new G+ user interface. Your patience is appreciated and please report any problems or glitches.* *THEME: Straight Lines* One of the most powerful tools in photography composition is the straight line. Share a photo with a crooked horizon line and everyone cringes!! Share a photo with a strong leading line to the subject of the photo and you get rave reviews. Straight lines both horizontal and vertical are VERY powerful. They represent strength and boldness. Curved lines are more soothing and tranquil. Straight lines that intersect can show chaos. Several parallel straight lines represent power and order. *For this event, we want to see your use of straight lines. In the comments tell us about the straight lines that are used and why you used them. Be sure to include the location.* *Some links that may be of help:* http://digital-photography-school.com/how-to-use-leading-lines-for-better-compositions/ https://photographylife.com/straightening-the-horizon-and-aligning-lines http://www.digital-photo-secrets.com/tip/2759/visual-design-using-line-in-photography/ *Special Rules:* 1. Share your landscape photograph that displays the theme. 2. In a comment on the photograph tell us about this photograph. Where is this place located? What were you trying to achieve? What challenges did you face and how did you overcome them? We want to know the details about your photograph. THE COMMENT IS REQUIRED. You will have 1 hour after posting your entry to include an appropriate comment. Those entries without an appropriate comment one hour after posting WILL BE REMOVED. 3. Other participants will be discussing on your post and asking you questions. Please join the discussion on other photographs as well. 4. This event is all about PARTICIPATION and DISCUSSION.

Landscape Photography Show13,608*LPS Event #50: The Perfect Horizon* This event will focus on a landscape photograph with "The Perfect Horizon".  It will also review our lessons from the Horizontal Rule of Thirds.  What makes a perfect horizon? 1) *Level* - The horizon MUST be level to the eye especially if it's water.  Landscapes with mountains and jagged horizons seem natural to our eye and we don't worry about it being level.  If the landscape is all land and there is a gentle slope to the horizon, then you are really challenged as to how do you make the viewer's eye sense that you got it right.  The easiest way to to incorporate a vertical element such as a tree along one of the vertical rules of third lines.  We know the tree is straight so the viewer's eye will think that you got it right. It's always great to get the horizon level in the camera but if you didn't, most post processing software has the ability to straighten the horizon for you.  Make use of these wonderful tools. 2) Place the horizon on the upper or lower horizontal rule of thirds lines.  This means that you have 1/3 sky and 2/3 land or 2/3 sky and 1/3 land. This tends to give us a more interesting photograph.  A horizon split right down the middle is often boring. 3) Know when to break the rules.  For example, a landscape with awesome reflections might look great if split down the middle. *Special Rules* 1.  Share your landscape photograph that displays a scene where you have used "The Perfect Horizon". 2.  In a comment on the photograph tell us about this photograph. Where is this place located?  What were you trying to achieve?  What challenges did you face and how did you overcome them?   We want to know the details about your photograph. THE COMMENT IS REQUIRED. 3.  Other participants will be discussing how you used this technique and asking you questions.  Please join the discussion on other photographs as well. 4.  This event is all about PARTICIPATION and DISCUSSION.  Please don't post a photo and leave.  The LPS reserves the right to remove photos without your comment.    *General Rules:* 1) Your photo MUST be ORIGINAL.  If you post the work of someone else, you will be removed from the event. 2) You MUST have complete EXIF data for your photo.  Within the event, select your photo and view it large.  Look for the "photo details" on the right.  It should be complete with the date the photo was taken, camera and lens information, ISO, f stop, speed etc.  Photos that don't have complete EXIF data will be removed.  Others will learn from seeing what you have done. 3) Only ONE photograph per person is allowed.  If you submit more than one photo, all of your photos will be removed. 4) Circle the @114888971165518552849 page. 5) Photos must be posted no later than Monday, September 7, 2015, 10 am CDT.  Those posted after that time will be removed. 6) Curator favorites will be shared to the @105588730866970114510 theme page.  Circle the curators and engage them in conversation.  You will learn lots LPS Event #50: The Perfect Horizon2015-08-31 17:00:00438

Landscape Photography Show13,608*Landscape Photography Show #47: Lines* Lines can have a huge impact on the composition of your photograph and there are many kinds.  Horizontal, vertical, and diagonal lines will create different moods.  Leading lines are extremely powerful when they lead to the object of your photograph.  The sweeping "S curve" adds the power of a strong leading line with a softer more tranquil treatment.  Here are a few short articles that will help you get the idea.  Please read them before posting. http://www.picturecorrect.com/tips/how-to-use-lines-in-photography-compositions/ http://digital-photography-school.com/composition-and-the-power-of-line/ http://digital-photography-school.com/how-to-use-leading-lines-for-better-compositions/ Use Google search to find other content on the power of lines. *Special Rules* 1.  Share your landscape photograph that displays a scene where you have used "Lines". 2.  In a comment on the photograph tell us about this photograph.

Landscape Photography Show13,608*Landscape Photography Show #47: Negative Space* Our last event featured "Fill the Frame".  This event will feature the opposite of that, "Negative Space".  Negative Space is the space surrounding an object or between objects.  In Landscape Photography, it is the space surrounding your primary element.  For example, you might have a single delicate flower along the left (or right) vertical line of the rule of thirds, and no other object in the frame.  The Negative Space is filled with complementary or background colors.    One way to achieve this is to get the primary object in focus and  use a very low number for your aperture.  The background will be blurred with lovely colors that accent your primary element.  Negative Space can be a VERY powerful composition technique.  However, it's difficult to accomplish.  Let's see how great you do.  Our best examples will receive our #GreatNegativeSpace  award!!! *Special Rules* 1.  Share your landscape photograph that displays a scene where you have used "Negative Space". 2.  In a comment on the photograph tell us about this photograph. Where is this place located?  What were you trying to achieve?  What challenges did you face and how did you overcome them?   We want to know the details about your photograph.

Landscape Photography Show13,608*Landscape Photography Show #47: Fill the Frame* "Fill the Frame" is often the first advice given to a beginning photographer.  That's what we will focus on in this event.  For landscape photographs, that can be done in one of two ways.  1. Do it with through the viewfinder.  Move yourself to the proper location and angle or zoom in/out if your camera does this until you get a pleasing image that "fills the frame".  You don't want any extra space or elements that will distract from your composition.   2. Crop your photo to eliminate that meaningless extra space that doesn't contribute to your composition and eliminate distracting elements. *Special Rules* 1.  Share your landscape photograph that displays a scene where you have "Filled the Frame". 2.  In a comment on the photograph tell us about this photograph. Where is this place located?  What were you trying to achieve?  What challenges did you face and how did you overcome them?   We want to know the details about your photograph.

Landscape Photography Show13,608*Landscape Photography Show #46: Power Points* In the last two events, we explored the horizontal and vertical rule of thirds lines and how they divide your frame into 9 equal parts.  It's always great to set a horizon on the lower or upper horizontal line.  It's also good to place a strong element along one of the vertical rule of thirds lines. This event will focus on where the two vertical and horizontal rule of thirds lines intersect.  We call those Power Points.  There are 4 of them: upper left, upper right, lower left, and lower right. Placing a strong element at one of the Power Points can really improve the composition, drama, and power of your photograph.  Examples:  the single red leaf on a green tree; the eye of anything wildlife, and the setting sun on the horizon.    Some landscape photographs really appeal to us and others seem boring. Do you know why?  Your brain is being stimulated by composition, color, and contrast and it's all subconscious.  Your photos can be more interesting and appealing by knowing rules of composition and when to break those rules. Power Points are what we want practice with this event.  Show us something special place at one of the intersection points of those vertical and horizontal lines.   1.  Share your landscape photograph that displays something special at one of the Power Points.       2.  In a comment on the photograph tell us which Power Point you used: upper left, upper right, lower left, or lower right.  Explain how you used this technique in your composition.  If you break the Power Point rules, tell us why.  Also give us some information about the location and any challenges that you faced.  We want to know the details about your photograph. 3.  Other participants will be discussing how you used this technique and asking you questions.  Please join the discussion on other photographs as well. 4.  This event is all about PARTICIPATION and DISCUSSION.  Please don't post a photo and leave.  The LPS reserves the right to remove photos without your comment.    General Rules: 1) Your photo MUST be ORIGINAL.  If you post the work of someone else, you will be removed from the event. 2) You MUST have complete EXIF data for your photo.  Within the event, select your photo and view it large.  Look for the "photo details" on the right.  It should be complete with the date the photo was taken, camera and lens information, ISO, f stop, speed etc.  Photos that don't have complete EXIF data will be removed.  Others will learn from seeing what you have done. 3) Only ONE photograph per person is allowed.  If you submit more than one photo, all of your photos will be removed. 4) Circle the @114888971165518552849 page. 5) Photos must be posted no later than Monday, July 13, 2015, 10 am CDT.  Those posted after that time will be removed. 6) Curator favorites will be shared to the @105588730866970114510 theme page.  Circle the curators and engage them in conversation.  You will learn lots from them!! 7) CuratLPS Event #46: Power Points2015-07-06 17:00:00344

Landscape Photography Show13,608*Landscape Photography Show #45: Vertical Rule of Thirds* In the last event, we explored how to set a horizon using the horizontal rule of thirds.  We're continuing with this strong rule of composition by looking at the Vertical Rule of Thirds.  This event will be starting later today so you have a chance to carefully read all the rules. Some landscape photographs really appeal to us and others seem boring. Do you know why?  Your brain is being stimulated by composition, color, and contrast and it's all subconscious.  Your photos can be more interesting and appealing by knowing rules of composition and when to break those rules. Remember in the last event that you imagined two horizontal lines in your viewfinder that divided the space into three equal spaces.  Now, also imagine two vertical lines that also divide the view into thirds.  You now have a grid much like the tic-tac-toe game.  The four points where the lines intersect are called focal points.  We will have more about them later.  For now, we will focus on the vertical lines.  Does your landscape have a strong vertical element that you want to capture?  Let's say it's a single tree.  We often like to put that tree smack dab in the center of the photo.  We may capture the tree but the photograph is boring.  Try putting that tree along one of the vertical lines separating the space into thirds.  Now the photograph has some drama and added interest.   That's what we want practice with this event.  Use one of your vertical lines to capture a strong vertical element.  Don't forget the Horizontal Rule of Thirds and Horizon that we had in the last event.  We want both rules of composition used in this event!! Knowing when to break the rules is important too but make sure you have a good reason to break the basic rules of composition.    *1.  Share your landscape photograph that displays a strong vertical element using the Vertical Rule of Thirds.  Keep in mind the horizon from the last event.*   *2.  In a comment on the photograph explain how you used this technique in your composition.  If you break the Vertical Rules of Thirds, tell us what you are trying to achieve.*   *3.  Other participants will be discussing how you used this technique and asking you questions.  Please join the discussion on other photographs as well.* *4.  This event is all about PARTICIPATION and DISCUSSION.  Please don't post a photo and leave.  The LPS reserves the right to remove photos without your comment.*    *General Rules:* 1) Your photo MUST be ORIGINAL.  If you post the work of someone else, you will be removed from the event. 2) You MUST have complete EXIF data for your photo.  Within the event, select your photo and view it large.  Look for the "photo details" on the right.  It should be complete with the date the photo was taken, camera and lens information, ISO, f stop, speed etc.  Photos that don't have complete EXIF data will be removed.  Others will learn from seeing what you have done. 3) OnlyLPS Event #45: Vertical Rule Of Thirds2015-06-22 19:00:00408

Landscape Photography Show13,608*Landscape Photography Show #44: Horizon - Rules-of-Thirds* Some landscape photographs really appeal to us and others seem boring. Do you know why?  Your brain is being stimulated by composition, color, and contrast and it's all subconscious.  Your photos can be more interesting and appealing by knowing rules of composition and when to break those rules. Imagine two horizontal lines in your viewfinder that divides the space into three equal spaces.  Also imagine two vertical lines that also divide the view into thirds.  You now have a grid much like the tic-tac-toe game.  The four points where the lines intersect are called focal points.  We will have more about them later and also the vertical lines.  This event will focus on those horizontal lines. Study your landscape BEFORE you shoot.  In the viewfinder, place the horizon on one of those horizontal rule-of-thirds lines.  You will have 1/3 sky and 2/3 ground or 2/3 sky and 1/3 ground.  That composition is very pleasing to the viewer.  Having your horizon dead center is often boring and not interesting.   Horizons should be level!!  If you have sky and water, then having the horizon level is a MUST!!   If you have sky and ground, the "level" becomes more complicated.  If your horizon is very curvy with rolling hills for example, you won't have a level horizon and that's OK.  Your mind's eye knows that hills aren't level.  If your horizon is the boundary between sky and land and only a slight hill, you're mind's eye won't find it appealing when looking at the photograph of that view because the horizon isn't level.   You can trick your mind's eye by adding a vertical element to the composition that the viewer will "know" is vertical such as a tree.  You might put that vertical tree on one of those vertical rule-of-thirds lines.  Your mind knows that the tree is vertical and won't mind an unlevel horizon. Knowing when to break the rules is important too but make sure you have a good reason to break the basic rules of composition.  You might try getting added drama with 10-20% sky and 80-90% ground or vice versa.  Share your landscape photograph that displays a horizon using the horizontal rule-of-thirds.  In a comment on the photograph explain how you used this technique in your composition.  If you break the horizontal rule-of-thirds, tell us what you are trying to achieve.  Other participants will be discussing how you used this technique and asking you questions.  Please join the discussion on other photographs as well.  Feel free to leave comments and discuss on the main event as well. *General Rules:* 1) Your photo MUST be ORIGINAL.  If you post the work of someone else, you will be removed from the event. 2) *You MUST have complete EXIF data for your photo.  Within the event, select your photo and view it large.  Look for the "photo details" on the right.  It should be complete with the date the photo was taken, camera and lens information, ISO, f stop, speed etc.  Photos that don'tLPS Event #44: Horizon - Rule of Thirds2015-06-08 17:00:00568

"Peace Day" provides an opportunity for individuals, organizations and nations to create practical acts of peace on a shared date. It was established by a United Nations resolution in 1981 to coincide with the opening of the General Assembly. The first Peace Day was celebrated in September 1982........ Anyone, anywhere can celebrate Peace Day. It can be as simple as lighting a candle at noon, or just sitting in silent meditation. Or it can involve getting your co-workers, organization, community or government engaged in a large event.

It made a nice change going out photographing with just the D7100 & 50mm f/1.8 primary in hand this morning, no backpack or tripod, heaven!

The plan for next Saturday is photographing at Salford Quays & China Town, both in Manchester, then onto Saddleworth Moor for night shots on the way home. I am looking forward to it and being slightly outside my comfort zone photographing architecture should be interesting. All good learning.

Enjoy the weekend all ;)

Bo ~ #MyToughestShot !!

Anyone who has tried to photograph animals knows the challenges that await. You have all the normal elements of color, exposure, light, etc. and then you have the totally unknown - the subject! Cats in particular do what cats do. That is, they do what they want to do and they could care less about what you have in mind. Patience is the key! Patience, patience, and then some more patience!!

I finally captured this portrait of Bo. He's an FeLV kitty who lives at +Best Friends Animal Society at Cal-Mar in Kanab, UT. It's the largest no-kill animal shelter in the country and a sanctuary for FeLV cats. FeLV is Feline Leukemia and a cat with the virus will likely have a shortened life. However, besides having the virus, these cats are healthy and happy and live great lives. If and when they start to show symptoms, then the... more »

One of my passions in my life is helping these awesome cats live the best lives that they can!! Ask your local animal shelter if they have a program for their FeLV cats. If they don't, consider making a donation to help start one. If they do, then consider making a donation to support their great work.

Bo is almost 6 years old. He and his 4 siblings were born in Brown County, Indiana and were supported early in their lives by +Brown County Humane Society in Nashville, IN. They all had FeLV and likely received it from their mother. They came to live at Best Friends about 5 years ago. The other siblings, Barney, Belinda, Bernice, and Bernard have all crossed the Rainbow Bridge and now only Bo remains.

Lunch ~ #MyToughestShot !!

When I first heard of the #MyToughestShot theme, this photograph immediately came to mind. I spent 4 hours one afternoon studying and photographing a woodpecker. These birds are creatures of habit and they often visit the same feeder repeatedly in the same flight pattern and return to a nearby tree where they crack open the seed, eat the contents, and then return for more.

There were over 400 photos taken that day and only a handful that were keepers. This is my favorite. It was taken at the Burr Oaks Conservation Center in Blue Springs, Missouri and it's one of my favorite places to commune with nature and enjoy the great outdoors.

Toroweap - A Photographer's Adventure

This was one of #MyToughestShot !!

Toroweap is on the North Rim of the Grand Canyon and it's very remote!! Getting there is the adventure. I invited 3 of my friends to help me celebrate my birthday at Toroweap. It required 2 days, 2 4-wheel drive vehicles, 2 guides, and lots of gear. The adventure starts near Kanab, UT, a place I dearly love. Around mile-marker 26, there is a dirt road with the sign "Toroweap 61". Yes, that's 61 miles. The first 55 miles are fairly easy. It's dirt and gravel and very well maintained for the first few miles. You pass through great unspoiled areas of the Arizona Strip country. The last 6 miles is where you really need high clearance 4-wheel drive vehicles with someone who knows what they are doing. The last couple of miles is pure rock!! I don't... more »

I don't recall seeing a road at all.

A storm passing through creating great clouds in the sky and my friend stepped near the edge to give the photo perspective. Down below, the Colorado River cuts deeper into the canyon. That's a 3000 ft. cliff!! This is also where Lava Falls is located on the river. It's one of the most dangerous rapids on the river.

Later we celebrated with great night photography and brownies to celebrate the day!! It was an awesome birthday celebration!!

Save the Planet ~ Start in Your Own Backyard

Earth Day 2017 - My planet. My part.

Create Community Earth Day 2017

Backyard bird feeders are a great way to provide food and habitat for songbirds. You can start to save the planet in your own backyard. Just erect a platform feeder and toss out some bird seed. Put it by a window so you can really enjoy the great birds that come to the feeder.

Create Community Earth Day 2017

At one time, there were only 22 California Condors left in the world. Thanks to the great efforts of conservationists, federal laws and funding, these magnificent birds now fly free about the canyons of Utah and Arizona. The San Diego Wild Animal Park was instrumental in bringing these birds back from the brink of extinction. This is the largest North American bird with a 10 ft. wing span. There are now 435 living in the wild and in captivity.

Sadly, we lost Barney last fall and now only Bo remains!! In this video Barney is on the left and Bo is on the right.

FeLV Fact: The FeLV virus was first described in cats in 1964. The disease was originally associated with leukemia; however, it was later realized that the initial signs are generally anemia and immunosupression. The first diagnostic test became available in 1973, which led to a "test and elimination" regime, dramatically reducing the number of infected cats in the general population. The first vaccine became available in 1986.

This amazing FeLV+ kitty is Tolivar and he's available for adoption from the Brown County Humane Society in Nashville, IN. www.bchumane.org

The NO KILL Matrix

Far too many shelters are killing FeLV+ cats and kittens just because they have the virus, not because they are symptomatic. This is wrong! WRONG!! Cats that test positive for FeLV and who are otherwise healthy should NOT be euthanized.

My question to you is this: When is euthanasia appropriate for a cat?
Answer: When the cat is suffering without hope for treatment or cure.

FeLV is NOT a chronic condition or disease. Cats that test positive for the FeLV virus are perfectly healthy. They can live long happy lives until they become symptomatic. At that time you treat the symptoms. Eventually, if and when the cat may be suffering, euthanasia should be considered.

The NO KILL Matrix includes asymptomatic FeLV+ cats.

Welcome to the FeLV+ Awareness Collection!!!

FeLV is Feline Leukemia. It's a retrovirus that affects only cats. It's transmitted between cats when they groom each other or in shared food and water bowls. Cats that are infected are otherwise healthy and can lead very normal lives. They have an expiration date as we all do and for them on average it's about 2.5 years. There are shelters that are still killing these cats including newborn kittens who test positive. This is absolutely wrong!! They can remain healthy and otherwise symptom free for many years. When they do become symptomatic, then their quality of life should determine treatment. There is no cure for FeLV. These are awesome cats and deserve a chance!!

He lives a happy life at Best Friends and is almost 6 years old so he's well beyond the average!

I just came from a visit at the KC Pet Project and I was VERY impressed with their amazing FeLV+ program. They are open admissions and intake 10,000 animals a year. They are now the third largest no-kill shelter in the country. They have a small FeLV+ cat room next to the main cat room. I was particularly impressed with their educational and adoption programs for these cats!! I was happy to make a donation!!

https://kcpetproject.org/

Hats off also to Help Humane in Belton, MO. They have an excellent shelter and even a sanctuary cottage for FeLV+ cats. They run an amazing program on a shoestring budget!! I was happy to make a donation to them too!

I'm encouraging all my animal loving friends to help support these two awesome local shelters!! Check them out and check out their great FeLV+ programs! They're awesome!!!... more »

I'm very impressed with this FeLV+ fact sheet. It's easy to read and very understandable.

This beautiful cat is Patrick. He's FeLV+ and available for adoption from the Brown County Humane Society, Nashville, IN. www.bchumane.org

We Have Lost a Legend! ~~ Chuck Berry !!!

I discovered Rock and Roll in 1957 when I was 11 years old. It was the year of tornados and some were devastating. We spent almost every evening in the basement shelter with my sister's transistor radio. WHB was the most powerful radio station in the Kansas City area and it was the first 24 hr. Rock & Roll radio station in the country. They gave tornado updates between the Rock & Roll songs. School Day was a big hit. I've been a Chuck Berry fan for decades!!

Let me introduce you to a fabulous photographer who is doing a fun activity with postcard exchanges!! +Geri Linda Metterle has inspired me to do this too. I don't know when but I plan on doing it!! Geri is helping to make G+ a fun place to be!! #LinkingPostcards

Connecting the World with #LinkingPostcards

This is a collection about sending postcards or printed images of your own shots the size of a postcard, the old fashioned way around the globe and receiving in return a personal shot from another person the same way back. You can send the printed image in an envelope, but the accompanying letter must be handwritten and it should contain at least where and when the image was shot.

I think it's a wonderful idea to hold a postcard in your hand, that might have traveled half the globe to reach you. Anyone can participate.

I was really disappointed in this decision. My internet provider, Comcast delivers rotten service, charges me a fortune, and now they get to sell my browsing data to marketers while I get nothing. They can do it legally without my permission. Bad idea!! To add insult to injury, Comcast actually owns my G+ account!! This very one that I'm using to post!! Their email is so horrible that the email filters won't work. I have to get a free Mozilla product to put on top of it to manage the filters! Total Ripoff!!!

I live in Missouri. Claire McCaskill voted against this while Roy Blunt voted for it. Senator Blunt received $185,550 in donations from such internet providers. This reminds me of the book 1984!!

To Hashtag or NOT to Hashtag ~~ That is the Question

I'm curious about how many hashtags you use and why do you use them?

Photography Themes ~ Photography themes have been here since day 1 of G+. I started on G+ in December, 2011 and immediately loved the photography themes. +SacredSunday™ was one of my favorites curated by a great team headed by +Charles Lupica . My first curating of G+ was with that great theme!! The great photographer +Ray Bilcliff had themes for each day of the week. I now curate two of them +Water Bird Wednesday and +Grass Tuesday !! I loved +Swampy Saturday and #BuggyFriday too.

I started +Landscape Photography in June, 2012, so we've been doing that for almost 5 years!!

I loved +Swampy Saturday and #BuggyFriday too.

I started +Landscape Photography in June, 2012, so we've been doing that for almost 5 years!!

We identify the photography themes with appropriate hashtags and then we tag the curators with a plus mention. In this way, the curators receive a notification of a post shared to the theme. We can create one post and share to multiple themes. Hence, we use more hashtags and plus mentions.

Search on hashtags ~ I use hashtags for searches and I know many others do too. That has become very helpful with the addition of two additional pages for +Landscape Photography Show for the educational events that are there and the +Landscape Photography Community for the creative challenge events. We created two special hashtags, #LPSFavorite and #LPCFavorite for participants to pick their favorite photographs in the events.

I know some people on G+ who put a unique hashtag on their own posts just so they can search for them later.

Wide Use on G+ ~ At one time, you could share a post as public and engage all the photography themes that you wanted with a single post and then reshare that post to each and every community that was of interest to you. You can now share to a public community and also to photography themes at the same time. The photography themes would utilize the hashtags while most communities do not.

Collections ~ Collections are the current "new feature" on G+. We can share a single post to the collection of our choice and also include the hashtags for the photography themes of our choosing. Isn't it nice that we can share to the photography themes AND to our favorite community or collection with a single post.

Google has implemented this in an excellent way. We have successfully used hashtags from day 1 of G+ and they are still going strong today. Why do you use hashtags? Please explain in the comments.___

My Message to Congress

We Learned a Lesson Today - Governing is hard. Tweets are easy! Slogans like "repeal and replace" are even easier!! GOVERNING IS HARD!!

The President I understand is blaming Democrats. I don't think they were invited to this party but they should have been. All I see is finger pointing of one form or another.

The Affordable Care Act is anything but affordable. It needs to be fixed, no doubt about it. It's up to Congress to figure out "how" to do it.

My Message and Plea - Delete the twitter accounts, turn off the cameras, stop the blame game, go behind closed doors and start talking and working together to achieve a common goal. Show some real leadership. All of you will have to give up some of the things that you want. This is called compromise. We haven't heard that word in a long... more »

My Weekend

I just returned from a weekend quilt retreat where I sewed 265 blankets for the kitties at the shelter where I volunteer. The blanket covers the kitty bed and goes home with the cat. Since they lay on these fleece blankets, their scent is on them and that helps the kitty feel safe for the transition in the pet carrier into their forever home. It was a great weekend!! No TV. No computer!! Just great ladies working on their quilts and other projects and lots of sewing time.
