No Speluniker Here

A  Thai soccer team has been trapped in a cave now for over 9 days.  Heavy rainfall has caused cave waters to rise trapping them, 1.4 miles in and ½ mile deep in the cave.  Options are: dive through the cave water and bring the boys out, wait for flood water to go down allowing the boys to get out on their own, find another natural entrance or create another entrance.

Vigilance

That's the title of this newest painting, finished on Monday.

 

Living in the shadow of Naval Base Kitsap in Bremerton, WA, has provided me with some insights into my community. Many of my art students come from military families stationed here. I don't discuss politics with any of them, though I suspect a number of ideological differences based on some of the things the kids say.



What I can't ever fault is the dedication and love these families have for our country, and…

RC and A MoonPie

One of Dr. McElhone's more fun adages went, sort of: "breakfast is an RC Cola and a MoonPie". At the time, I don't think I'd ever seen a MoonPie, New England and all that. Just to confirm, I consulted The Wiki, happily discovering I remembered correctly. The little grey cells aren't all done.

There is a custom for eating Moon pies with RC Cola, although the origin of this is unknown.

He also had a long held…

A Proposal...

Image result for US government meme

I doubt ANYONE finds our current electoral system to be acceptable in this day and age.  It was mostly created by slave owners who believed only property owners/the "Elite" should have a say in electing government officials.  That is why they create a system where the "common man's vote" really meant nothing and the votes of the people THEY placed in the "Electoral College" meant everything.…
