My Nephew the artist! - 12/08/09 02:59 PM
I wanted to share with everyone my Nephews paintings. He is currently enrolled at Radford University working on his masters in the art program. He also teaches the undergrads art appreciation. He has had no formal training and started drawing when he was a toddler. Here are some of his paintings that adorn several of my family members homes; but definitely this collection isn't all inclusive; this is just what I have access too right now. Most of his work is "still life". He does pencils, charcoals, oils, etc... This is his latest & I'm trying to talk him into giving it to (2 comments)
1st snow of winter 2009 - 12/05/09 05:12 PM
We woke up this morning to the 1st snow of the season in anticipation of 3-4" and it delivered!! This photo was taken around 8:30am. The flakes were so large, they looked like feathers falling from the sky. It fell until around 4:00pm and then stopped. Of course the ground and road is so warm, nothing stuck (on the road at least) but it is nice to see the Christmas lights bounce off of the white snow. Now tomorrows temps. is supposed to be in the 40's. Good bye snow for now....but it'll be back...ole man winter promises!! 8:30am
I have heard alot of how Christmas plantings are toxic to pets. Poinsettias are not a friend, but does anyone know about a Rosemary tree? My Husband brought home a rosemary tree (smells great) and the dog could care less but my cat is extremely curious. Will this cause her distress? It is actually rosemary so it is edible for humans?
Social networking...imagine - 12/02/09 12:04 PM
There are so many social networks out there, it's hard to keep track. Several that our company encourages us to utilize are: Facebook Twitter Linkedin Handshake Gladhandle Active rain These coupled with our email, personal websites, cell phones (with email and camera capabilities of course), landlines, and of course the in person "meet & greets". What on earth would we do without them all? How did we survive growing up without texting, blogging or tweeting? I actually drug out an old typewriter the other day and found the keys so stiff and hard to control. It's hard to imagine when the typewriter, dictaphone (7 comments)
New River Valley video - 12/02/09 11:32 AM
The New River Valley (NRV) economic development has created a video and posted it on you tube. It outlines many highlights of the NRV and surrounding towns and cities like Blacksburg (home of Virginia Tech), Christiansburg, Radford (home of the Radford Highlanders), Giles & Pulaski counties to name a few. No doubt why we choose to live here. Atmosphere, scenery, great people, businesses, innovation and continual growth. A great place to call home! I invite you all to visit!
