#197 - it's beginning to look a lot like christmas




#197 - it's beginning to look a lot like christmas





inspired by... december.

i gave into christmas commercialisation & bought a christmas cd this evening. i cldn't help it. it was just too tempting!

meanwhile, & ironically, i am re-evaluating what christmas means to me. smwhere along the way, the excitement & spirit of the christmas season no longer gives the tingles it used to. perhaps as a kid, everything is new & bright lights in general are just attractive & happy. it was also school holidays & which kid isn't happy to be out of school? & now, while we get jaded with the mundane work life & the chore of buying obligatory presents, & the common reminder is that Christmas is a time for family & giving & love & kindness, i realised today tt, expecially for the christians, everyday should be like tt! so apart from the actual birth of Christ, what so special about the Christmas season? everything that we are excited abt is pagan - the lights, the tree, the fake snow (i mean for crying out loud, we're in singapore. winter is unheard of. also, the association of christmas & snow is also a matter of convenience since large countries are having winter at the end of the yr. it has nothing to do with the religions aspect of christmas at all), santa claus is a hoax (fine, st nicholas apparently existed, but the evolution of him is very deceptive), food, drink, parties, presents.... it's all commercialisation. even the religions aspect of it suddenly doesn't make sense. we are asked to reflect on our lives & prepare our souls for the birth of Jesus. to welcome him into this world & be joyful that He came to be one of us to save us. but we are also told to be always prepared for his coming for we never know when He will come again.

so if kindness & generosity & love & sacrifice are supposed to be part of daily life, what extra preparation is needed at advent for Christmas? what's so special about Christmas?











kid's gingerbread party




kid's gingerbread party





I like to put a little something together for my kids and the neighborhood kids every year to give them a chance to get together and celebrate. Cookie and gingerbread house decorating is always a fun activity. I like to cover the kids sized tables in colorful butcher paper because it makes everything else really pop. Candy always makes a fun and colorful tablescape so there isn't much work in the decoration department. Just a few fun glass jars to display it and you're done! I used sheetsof colorful scrapbook paper as the placemats for each kid adding another layer of color and fun. The gingerbread flavored sodas area fun touch to add to tables too.

I am so in the DOGHOUSE! 18/100




I am so in the DOGHOUSE! 18/100





Ok so I thought Id take Barbie to the hometown Christmas Parade for my 100 possibilities project. Yeah maybe Id get a good shot of her attending or waving or something. Devon was riding in the parade and when his FFA float came by I thought way cool get her with Devons float. Noooo! Not a good idea! Barbie came out great but every pic I got of Devon was blurry CRAP! Oh he was done with me!

Earlier in the day when I dropped him off to decorate their float I hung around the school campus taking pics of this and that. So later Devon told me his friends were like "Dude, Your mom is totally watching you, spying on you" Devon said he told them "naw, shes just taking pictures". Of course they didnt believe him. (luckily I left)
Sooo later he said he was mortified that I had the Barbie out when his float came by! Said he totally denied me when his friends asked "Hey is that your mom with a Barbie?" He said he "DIDNT KNOW THAT LADY!" Hell I didnt think anything of it. I am who I am. I dont put on airs for anyone. If you dont like me screw you is my thinking, But now I kinda feel bad. I hope one day he can see the humor in all of this. I dont think hes really really mad or upset (I hope). I suppose I have to tone down my wild side, I forget people are watching sometimes. Anyway thanks for listening my friends.

Shadow puppet stage set-up. "Why don't you paint or decorate that thing," I imagine folks might ask. I considered that. I had plans to layer shapes of cardboard to make it look fancier (note what appears to be a nascent pediment, but in the end I thought I should leave it plain to give kids (and some adults) an idea to build on using their own creativity. Besides, it's just cardboard and I can throw it away when it gets worn ... and build another! (I've already saved a poster carton for that eventuality.)

1950's decor - The Modern




The Modern Period Room 1870-1950


The Modern Period Room 1870-1950



How does one turn a house containing artworks into a museum? How does one narrate the story of the lives that were lived there? How authentic can a retrospective reconstruction of interior spaces and their contents be?
The contributors of The Modern Period Room, drawn from a broad range of disciplines, consider the interiors of the modern era and their more recent reconstruction from a variety of different viewpoints. Beneath the conceptual and physical strategy of the representational technique of the modern period room lie numerous conflicting intentions.
This collection of essays by design historians, architects and curators engages with these tensions. The authors explore themes and examples by architects such as Frank Lloyd Wright, Truus Schroeder and Gerrit Rietveld, Erno Goldfinger and others in a bid to reveal the specific cultural encoding of presented interior spaces.
The book's critical engagement with the issues and conventions which surround the modern period room will allow historians and theorists of architecture, design and social history to investigate the contexts in which this representational device has been used. The various models of period room enables the reader to understand just how dynamic, contributory and ultimately interventionist the presentation of the period room is in the process of architectural and design history making.

Goyana decorative patterns, mostly 1960s




Goyana decorative patterns, mostly 1960s





Goyana was the only successful Brazilian melamineware maker. It started as a contractor molder of Bakelite and Plaskon parts in 1936, then moved into molding thermoplastics like Polystyrene too. In the early 50s they started to produce their own line of bathroom accessories like toilet seats, stools and cabinets. In 1962 they began molding melamineware, mostly copies of American designs. The difference was the bold use of applied decoration, very different from the sedate American counterparts. Shown above are a few examples; some other can be found in this collection. Goyana was in activity until the early 1980s, when Brazilian economic difficulties finally got it out of business.

Hanan & Son, 54 Bridge Street (220 Water Street)




Hanan & Son, 54 Bridge Street (220 Water Street)





DUMBO, Brooklyn

Features: Nineteen bays on Bridge Street, nine bays on Water Street, and nine bays on Front Street; large segmental-arch openings separated by brick piers; end bays on Bridge Street narrower than other bays; building reflects slight slope of site, with the basement only partially above sidewalk level on Front Street rising to a full story on Water Street; multi-pane metal windows with operable awnings; iron tie rods; corbelled cornice; pedestrian entrance in westernmost bays on Front Street and Water Street; bluestone stairs at pedestrian entrance on Water Street; three fire escapes on Bridge Street.

Significant alterations: Two corner bays on Front Street partially filled in and converted into loading docks on first floor; eighth bay on Water Street partially filled in and converted into vehicular entrance.

History: The western portion of this block was home to the Union White Lead Works (later the National Lead Company) which began purchasing property on the block as early as 1837. The lead company’s property was sold to James and John H. Hanan in 1893. Although already occupied by a factory, James Hanan and his son John chose to demolish the existing buildings and replace it with a new factory for the manufacturing of shoes. Hanan initially announced construction of a seven-story structure; he actually built a five-story factory. Even before purchasing the DUMBO property, James Hanan was a resident of Brooklyn, living in a large mansion at 45 Eighth Avenue (demolished) in Park Slope. James Hanan (1819-1897) was born in Ireland and learned the shoe trade from his father. In 1849 he moved to America and in 1854 established a small shoemaking business in New York City. In about 1865, his son, John Henry Hanan (1849-1920), entered his father’s firm, and in 1882 the company became Hanan & Son.

The Hanan Company was among the first to stamp the firm’s name on every shoe, a daring idea at a time when most people still sought shoes handmade by the dealer. The firm was successful and in 1888 Hanan began opening retail stores to sell the factory’s product directly to consumers.

In 1894, the company had stores in New York, Brooklyn, Boston, Philadelphia, Cleveland, Milwaukee, New Haven, Buffalo, Chicago, and St. Paul. By 1914 the firm had thirteen retail stores in the United States and Europe (apparently in London and Paris).

Shoe manufacturing was a major industry in Brooklyn in the late nineteenth century, with 65 factories doing a combined business of $2,300,000 in 1894; one-third of that business was done at the Hanan factory. The manufacture of a pair of shoes began on the upper floor of the factory where thin leather uppers were cut from patterns; women then stitched the uppers together on sewing machines; boys then took the uppers and smoothed the seams. The uppers were then moved to the third floor where lasters worked. The uppers were tacked to lasts and leather attached to the last mold to create the form of the bottom of the shoe. The bottom and upper were sewn together and then the shoes proceed to men who inserted the insoles, largely by machine. Then glue was placed on the insole and another employee added the heavy sole, again by machine. The shoes now moved sown to the next floor where heels were nailed on by machine and where soles and heels were trimmed. Finally the shoes moved to the lower floor where they were washed, cleaned, and boxed. On this lower floor, machines also stamped out the soles. The company’s offices were on the first floor facing Front Street.

In 1894, when the description of the manufacturing process was written, there were between three and four hundred employees in the factory, although the article notes that there was capacity for 600 people. In 1913 the company employed 1,131 people in its Brooklyn factory (871 men,210 women, and 50 office workers). John Hanan also owned shoe companies in other cities and served as president of the National Boot and Shoe Manufacturers’ Association. He was also the founder of the United Shoe Machinery Corporation, which manufactured machines for use in show factories. After John Hanan’s death, the firm was taken over by his sons Herbert Wilmer Hanan (1872-1933) and Addison Garthwaite Hanan (1876-1923) and grandson Robert Wilmer Hanan (1903-1933). The company went bankrupt in 1935. Old signs extant on the building in 2000 recorded some of the complex’s later occupants: Starlite Lamp Shade Company, Fashion Decor Lamp Shade Company, Washington Garter Corporation, National Leather Manufacturing Company, Gotham Furniture Frame Company, Modern Box Company, Star Fastener Company, Embassy Archives Center, Melcon Design Company, Shaw Television Corporation, Deluxe Novelty Company (DLX Industries), and Latex Specialties.

The simple brick facade, articulated by large segmental openings, simple brick piers, and corbelled cornice, marks 54 Bridge Street as a significant example of transition from the American Round Arch style

This little 'kitchen'came in handy when my son lived with us. The basement was kind of his 'living room' when he had friends over for DnD. When we redo our actual kitchen upstairs all it will need is a microwave and possibly a stove (220) plug. We have no decor ideas on this space.

Bamana Marka Mask




Bamana Marka Mask





91.Bamana Marka Mask, Mali................................................................................................$190.00

The Bamana are one of the most studied groups of West Africa. They say that they are of Mandinke origin and have tightly interwoven themselves with their neighbors through marriage, commercial trade, political alliances, and religion. The triangle of the Bamana region, divided in two parts by the Niger River, constitutes the greater part of the western and southern Mali of today. The dry savanna permits no more than a subsistence economy, and the soil produces, with some difficulty, millet, rice, and beans.
Arabic texts of the ninth century give the history of cities such as Djenne and Timbuktu, whose inhabitants they call "Bambara." At the beginning of the twentieth century, they were colonized by the French.
Numbering 1.9 million, the Bamana are distributed over regions that comprise villages placed under the authority of one family, whose head, the fama, representing the founder, enjoys considerable powers. He also plays a primary role in the agrarian rituals.
In 1940, archeologists discovered the traces of an earlier kingdom and found terra-cotta figures that were dated through thermoluminescent tests to around the year 1000. These terra-cottas are proof of a long tradition of sculpture; the first wood figures date back to the fourteenth century.
The Bamana believe in the existence of spiritual forces which are activated by individuals, who are capable of creating an atmosphere of harmony, prosperity, and well-being. The Bamana have a very complex cosmology. Initiation takes place within the men's associations, which are more or less active depending on the village: the n'tomo, the komo that directs the life of the community; the nama, the komo that regulates morality violations; and the kore and the tyi wara, which organize young farmers. These societies, run by ancestors, act in political, economic, and medical capacity and exercise social control over the community.
In the south of the Bamana region, the dyo association welcomes men and women, but initiation is shorter and less difficult for the latter; initiation for men lasts for seven years and ends with their symbolic death and their rebirth. It terminates in great masked feasts in which the newly initiated participate, going from village to village. The initiates are divided into groups, and the sons of blacksmiths dance in the presence of statues called nyeleni - upright female figures with wide, flat shoulders, standing on small circular -bases. Their cone-shaped breasts project frontally. (K. Ezra, 1986) During the feasts of dyo and the ritual of the gwan, linked to fertility, seated figures are exhibited. Statues of a woman with a child appeared on the market in the 1950s. Kept on the shrines throughout the year, the figures were cleaned, oiled, decorated with clothing and beads, and placed in groups of from two to five pieces. Naturalistic in style, they are of larger dimensions than the majority of Bamana sculpture. The bodies are massive, sculpted in the round, with wide shoulders, the features of the face treated with a sweetness and care for detail. In the same style, representations of musicians and of lance-carrying warriors are found. These statues illustrate the qualities that the future initiates must have: beauty, knowledge, and power. Each figure is "explained" to the initiates and conveys the vital force that contributes to the cohesion of the village. (K. Ezra)
During the agrarian feasts of the tyi wara association, farmers wear headdresses in the shape of an antelope, which represents the mythical character who taught them how to cultivate the land. In order to obtain an abundant harvest, they dance at the time of planting and harvesting by imitating the steps of the antelope. The horn is supposed to be the symbol of the millet's growth.
The komo association, run by the blacksmiths, welcomes all male adolescents after their circumcision. It has a mask characterized by a huge mouth and antelope horns to which various elements are added, such as animal jaws. The mask, worn only by blacksmiths, "dances" in front of the members of the komo. Its disquieting appearance evokes the bush, and its dangers and its force are such, they say, that it can kill an adversary.
Each association has its own masks, headdress crests, and marionettes. These masks appear at times of celebration: at weddings or inaugurations of a market or under other pretexts. With the help of music, poetry, and history as told by the griots, these celebrations are both a diversion and a reminder of the social values of the Bamana. For a young boy, dancing at the time of a celebration is an opportunity to show his personal abilities and to acquire prestige. But he will first have to prove his skill and obtain authorization from the elders to appear in public, which may subsequently be refused if his f

Harlem Style: Designing for the New Urban Aesthetic






Harlem Style is the first book to celebrate the modern design movement inspired by African- Americans. With its roots in the first Harlem Renaissance, and reinterpreted today by the forerunners of the new urban aesthetic, this book defines how this style is being interpreted in home decor today - in Harlem, in New York City, and around the country, Featuring interiors by some of today's most sought-after designers, the book divides its study into three sections. Section 1 traces the history and influence of Harlem Style from the first renaissance of the 1920s to today. Section 2 breaks down a study of the aesthetic through signature design details such as color, texture, and pattern. Section 3 brings it all together by showing how these design details are combined in whole rooms. Interspersed throughout are profiles of "eccentric" Harlem interiors by some of the true personalities of the neighborhood.

Sculpture - From Antiquity to the Present Day

"Text and illustrations form a remarkable whole, on a theme which has never been subjected to such a precise synthetic study." -Beaux Arts Magazine, Paris

Ranging from ancient to contemporary sculpture, this book is the first study of the history of sculpture to present such an original and comprehensive approach. Taking the sculptures out of the museum context (and thus off of their proverbial pedestals), this volume presents a completely new view which affords enlightening comparisons between eras and genres. This remarkable work is indispensable for artlovers of all tastes and disciplines.

we finally got our lighthouse!




we finally got our lighthouse!





We've long admired everyone else's lighthouse-from-a-kite shots, and now we finally have a few of our own.

Even though this shot is diagonal, it's my favorite of the bunch. There's a few straight shots in our photostream for anyone interested.

Silver Lake lighthouse on Lake Michigan. Photo taken from a kite. We were downstate on a retreat. It was a rainy day... the next day was sunny and gorgeous, but there was no wind. We'd hoped to get closer to the top of the lighthouse... maybe we'll come back another time. The DNR workers who were there yesterday when it was sunny said that they're probably going to open the lighthouse for tours next year. How fun!

Another shot just before the sunset at Peggy's Cove. The top of the lighthouse is between the two buildings. I wish the scene was a little less crowded, but I liked the light.

According to legend, Peggy's Cove was named after the only survivor of a schooner that ran aground and sank in 1800... a woman named Margaret. Local folk called her "Peggy" and her home came to be known as Peggy's Cove. The original lighthouse was built in 1868.

eco friendly decorating tips - Nature Babycare




Nature Babycare Eco-Friendly Chlorine-Free Diapers, Size 3 (16-28-Pounds), 31 Diapers (Pack of 4) [Amazon Frustration-Free Packaging]


Nature Babycare Eco-Friendly Chlorine-Free Diapers, Size 3 (16-28-Pounds), 31 Diapers (Pack of 4) [Amazon Frustration-Free Packaging]



Nature babycare Chlorine-Free Diapers, Size 3 (16-28Ibs), 124 count

Nature Babycare Diapers are 100-percent chlorine-free and keep oil-based plastics away from babies delicate skin. Our absorbent pulp is from sustainably harvested Scandinavian forests and the patented center-channel means a less bulky fit while enhancing leak protection. Since we use 60-percent natural materials instead of plastic, our diapers are super soft and cloth-like providing comfort without sacrificing protection.


Leading the Way in Europe
Nature Babycare is a Swedish-based company founded by a pioneering mum 14 years ago who thought the world deserved a better diaper! Marlene Sandberg was appalled to learn that babies will produce half a ton of diapers every year. Half a ton! So she sought to create a range of award-winning diapers and baby products which are effective, price competitive, and --making Nature Babycare products good for both babies and the environment. We are the trusted source for baby products among consumers and the green community. Nature Babycare is leading the industry in Europe by providing mum's with a high-performance diaper that is better for their babies and the environment.


Why We're Award-Winning
Our diapers and pull-on pants are over 60-percent biodegradable in contrast to major brands which are often composed of up to 80-percent oil-based products which do not decompose easily. Conventional diapers can take hundreds of years to decompose, but because of the high content of bio-degradable material, ours break down in a fraction of that time, meaning there's less need for landfill or polluting incineration. We keep oil-based plastics away from babies delicate skin and use natural, breathable corn-based materials instead. Our patented center-channel reduces the need for bulky absorbent material while enhancing leak protection. Nature Babycare Diapers are 100-percent chlorine-free, protecting the environment by not producing harmful dioxin pollution.
All of this combined minimizes diaper rash and other irritations so that your baby is healthy and happy! With features such as stretchy tabs and leg gatherings, a soft cloth-like feel, and non-bulky absorbent pulp, we've created an award-winning diaper that performs ahead of the rest. Our founding principle was to give mum's a high performance diaper that is better for their baby and better for the environment. We strive to use renewable materials whenever possible in all of our product lines. Nature Babycare Diapers offer the convenience of disposables with the most attributes.
What Makes Us Unique
Other diapers can claim to be green but still use massive amounts of oil-based plastics. As a mum, our founder knew there had to be a better way to make diapers. That's why we've spent many years perfecting our diapers by eliminating as much non-biodegradable materials as possible while maintaining performance and comfort. We also use an absorbent pulp that is sustainably harvested out of Scandinavian forests. Our diapers are completely unbleached, contain no latex, fragrance, or TBT (tributyltin), and are hypo-allergenic.
As with any diaper, for maximum performance, when your baby reaches the upper limits of the weight class, we recommend that you switch to the next larger size.

I don't own an icing bag but you can jury-rig your own with a piece of parchment paper. Make a cone and drop your decorating tip (you can buy these at the grocery store) into the end.

Cheaper and more eco-friendly than a plastic icing bag - whenever I've used a plastic bag I always ended up splitting it along the seam within five minutes and making a huge mess.

Paula Deen's Savannah Style


Paula Deen's Savannah Style



With its lush gardens, stately town houses, and sprawling plantations, Savannah is the epitome of old Southern style, and who better to give you the grand tour than Paula Deen, the city’s most famous resident and anointed Queen of Southern Cuisine?
In this gorgeous, richly illustrated book, Paula Deen shares a full year of Southern living. Whether it’s time to put out your best china and make a real fuss, or you’re just gathering for some sweet tea on the porch at dusk, Savannah style is about making folks feel welcome in your home. With the help of decorator and stylist Brandon Branch, you’ll learn how to bring a bit of Southern charm into homes from Minnesota to Mississippi. For each season, there are tips on decorating and entertaining. In the spring, you’ll learn how to make the most of your outdoor spaces, spruce up your porch, and make your garden inviting. In the summer, things get more casual with a dock party. Sleeping spaces, including, of course, the sleeping porch, are the focal point of this chapter. In the fall, cooler weather brings a return to more formal entertaining in the dining room, and in the winter, attention returns to the hearth, as Paula and her neighbors put out their best silver and show you how they celebrate the holidays.
Paula loves getting a peek at her neighbors’ parlors, so she’s included photographs of some of Savannah’s grandest homes. From the vast grounds of Lebanon Plantation to the whimsically restored cottages on Tybee Island, you’ll see the unique blend of old-world elegance and laid-back hospitality that charmed Paula the moment she arrived from Albany, Georgia, with nothing but two hundred dollars and a pair of mouths to feed. And she isn’t shy about giving you a window into her own world, either. From her farmhouse kitchen to her luxurious powder room, you’ll see how Paula lives when she’s not in front of the camera.
Packed with advice and nostalgia, Paula Deen’s Savannah Style makes it easy to bring gracious Southern living to homes north and south of the Mason-Dixon Line.

CAMP HUMPHREYS — The 2nd Combat Aviation Brigade has seen a multitude of valiant leaders come and go over the years and this summer was no different for the Talon family. The brigade said goodbye to Lt. Col. Julius A. Rigole Jr., outgoing commander of the 602nd Aviation Support Battalion, and to Lt. Col. Erik Rude, outgoing commander of the 3rd General Support Aviation Battalion.
Fortunately for the Talon Brigade, the new faces around the halls of the Warhorse and Nightmare battalions are no stranger to the full spectrum training regimen.
The incoming commander for 602nd ASB, Lt. Col. James A. Duncan took over the reins of the Warhorse Battalion on a gorgeous South Korean morning here during an hour-long change of command ceremony.
Immediately before the ceremony, Col. James T. Barker, the 2nd CAB commander, held a awards ceremony for the highly decorated outgoing commander, during which Brig. Gen. Charles Taylor, the 2nd Infantry Division assistant division commander for maneuvers, praised Rigole for all of his hard work and dedication to 2nd ID during his command here.
As the only aviation support battalion here in Korea, hard work was almost assured for Rigole from the time he got off the plane in Incheon to the time his boots left the Korean soil and Barker echoed the same sentiment.
“We are a maintenance brigade that sometimes flies,” said Barker. “If it were not for the Soldiers and civilians working hand-in-hand in the Warhorse battalion each and every day we would undoubtedly be a static display brigade.”
For Rigole, it was the hard work of those same Soldiers that made his time here so special and from his speech to the battalion it was noticeable that leaving the Soldiers he helped mold and grow over the last two years was going to have a lingering effect on him.
“To the Soldiers of the Warhorse battalion, I could go on and on about the many accolades and accomplishments you have achieved over the last two years from winning the 8th Army Award for Maintenance Excellence, to setting the standard for the division in combat patrol qualifications, to hosting peninsula wide combative tournaments,” Rigole said. “It has been an honor to be your commander.”
Duncan, a former aviation maintenance captain who worked on the same ramp just 14 years prior, let the Warhorse Family know right away that it was an exciting homecoming for him.
“What an honor to be a member of the Warhorse Battalion and its rich history,” Duncan said. “And truth be told, I’m part of that history already. It was roughly 14 years ago that I was stationed right here at Camp Humphreys, right here working on this very ramp, and in this very hangar. Back then it was the C Company 52nd Aviation Battalion also known as “the Flying Tigers.” I was a young captain working aviation maintenance in what would become B Company, 602nd ASB.”
As the Warhorse Family welcomed its new leader to their ranks, the Nightmare battalion was busy preparing to welcome a new leader as well.
To kick things off for 3-2 GSAB, 2nd Infantry Division Commander, Maj. Gen. Michael Tucker, said goodbye to Rude during a brief awards ceremony in the Super Gym conference room.
Rude thanked the 2nd ID commander for attending the ceremony and recalled their first meeting.
“General Tucker, the day you took command you had all of your commanders and command sergeants major in the Camp Casey Theater and you told us what you expected,” Rude said. “You said many powerful things that day, but there is one that I must say loud. You said ‘If a leader is where his Soldiers are, he is probably in the right place.’ Sir, I took those words to heart and spent most of my time in the motor pool and the flight line. Those are the places where great things happen. Those words made my two years of command fun and rewarding.”
Barker noted Rude’s hard work for the unit.
“Although Erik has definitely made a significant impact on the Nightmare Battalion and he is definitely leaving the organization better than he found it and we will be sad to see him go, the good news is the Army has this change of command thing figured out,” he said. “When we lose one outstanding command team, we are provided with another one to replace them. Lieutenant Colonel David Snow is returning to Korea where he previously served as an assistant operations officer at Camp Stanley back in 2000,” said Barker. “I have the utmost confidence in his ability to assume command without missing a beat.”
Snow closed the ceremony with a subtle expression of appreciation for how Rude had run the battalion for the last two years by making it known that the Nightmare Battalion would continue to operate under a similar manner as his distinguished predecessor.
“Soldiers of the Nightmare battalion, you look great,” said Snow. “Your pride in service and professionalism are second to none. All policies and procedures remain in effect.”

About the Artists:

Serge Armando

NEO – GEO – CLASSICISM :

combines the following tenets of Neoclassicism with and expressed through geometric abstraction:

1. a regard for tradition and reverence for the classics, with an accompanying distrust of innovation
2. a sense of literature as art--that is, as something "artificed" or "artificial," made by craft; hence the value put on "rules," conventions, "decorum," the properties of received genres.
3. a concern for social reality, and the communal commonplaces of thought which hold it together.
4. a concern for "nature"--or the way things are (and should be). This relates back to the distrust of innovation and inherent conservatism of neoclassicism. The artistic rules of old, for instance, Pope describes as having been "discovered, not devised" and are "Nature methodized"; so too, "Nature and Homer" are "the same" (Essay on Criticism 88ff., 135). This belief in "nature" implies a conviction that there is a permanent, universal way things are (and should be), which obviously entails fundamental political and ethical commitments.

Born in Nice during a period of Existentialist post-war France, Serge Armando, from his earliest days, was steeped in a backdrop of the blue skies of la Cote d’Azur. From proximity, his way was ushered into first hand experience with Flux and Les Nouveaux Realists.

In 1989, Armando accepted a position at Laguna Art Museum as Exhibition Designer. His first assignment, "Turning the Tide," an exhibition of early Los Angeles Modernists, introduced him to the spiritually-charged abstract works of Peter Krasnow and the hard-edged geometric works of John McLaughlin.
Artist and scholar Michael McManus said this of Armando, "Frontal, blunt, and totemic, [Armando’s] works confront viewers as primal plus-minus icons, but are also perceptually elusive in how they activate the viewer’s peripheral vision. Their workman-like massing of precise, flat, polychromatic acrylic, creates an arresting abstract yet pictorial arena. Like many pure abstract artists of the late twentieth century, Armando regards the non-objective as a visual language–still in its infancy–whose potential equals that of representation." In this way, Armando’s works are invitations for viewers to impose upon them their own visual idiolects, complete with their own experiential lexicons which have arisen from the viewers’ own distinct inventories of “heres” and “nows”.

Armando’s latest works are, as always, iconic and kinetic. The works document his lifelong immersion in competitive systems of organization. Each work of the series propagates squarely steadfast abstract geometric immediacy.
Over his thirty-year residence in Laguna Beach, Armando has played a decisive role in the careers of significant area artists and gallery owners. His works have exhibited in key local galleries and Museums, and have sold to some of Southern California’s most distinguished collectors of contemporary art. His recent, 2005, first place showing at Laguna Art Museum’s twenty-third annual art auction is testimony to his continued impact and import on the local art scene.
Paraphrased from an interview/article by Mike Stice, Laguna Beach, 2005

Catacombs of Paris




Catacombs of Paris





Catacombs of Paris
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

The Catacombs of Paris or Catacombes de Paris are a famous underground ossuary in Paris, France. Located south of the city's former 'Barriere d'Enfer' city gate (at today's Denfert-Rochereau), the ossuary fills a renovated section of caverns and tunnels that are the remains of Paris' stone mines. Opened in the late 18th century, the underground cemetery became a tourist attraction on a small scale from the early 19th century, and has been open to the public on a regular basis from 1867.
Following an incident of vandalism, they were closed to the public in September of 2009 and reopened 19 December of the same year.
The official name for the catacombs is l'Ossuaire Municipal. Although this cemetery covers only a small section of underground tunnels comprising 'les carrieres de Paris' ('the quarries of Paris'), Parisians today often refer to the entire tunnel network as 'the catacombs'.

Paris Catacombs
Paris since Roman times buried its dead to the outskirts of the city, but this changed with the rise of Christianity and its practice of burying its faithful deceased in consecrated ground in and adjoining its churches. By the 10th century, because of the city's expansion over the centuries, there were many parish cemeteries within city limits, even in central locations. When Paris' population began to rise rapidly in the following centuries, some of these cemeteries became overcrowded where expansion was impossible. Soon only the most wealthy could afford church burials, which led to the opening in the early 12th century of a central burial ground for more common burials: initially dependent upon the St. Opportune church, this cemetery near Paris' central Les Halles district was renamed as the 'Saints-Innocents cemetery' under its own church and parish towards the end of the same century.


Skull Catacombs of Paris 2010
The practice common then for burying the lesser-wealthy dead was mass inhumation. Once an excavation in one section of the cemetery was full, it would be covered over and another opened. Few of the dead buried in this way had the privilege of coffins; often the casket used for a burial ceremony would be re-used for the next. Thus the residues resulting from the decaying of organic matter, a process often chemically accelerated with the use of lime, entered directly into the earth, creating a situation quite unacceptable for a city whose then principle source of liquid sustenance was well-water.
By the 17th century the sanitary conditions around Saints-Innocents cemetery was unbearable. As it was one of Paris' most sought-after cemeteries and a large source of revenue for the parish and church, the clergy had continued burials there even when its grounds were filled to overflowing. By then the cemetery was lined on all four sides with "charniers" reserved for the bones of the dead exhumed from mass graves that had lain long enough for all the flesh they contained to decompose. Once emptied, a mass sepulture would be used again, but even then the earth was already filled beyond saturation with decomposable human remains.
A series of ineffective decrees limiting the use of the cemetery did little to remedy the situation, and it wasn't until the late 18th century that it was decided to create three new large-scale suburban burial grounds to the outskirts of the city, and to condemn all existing parish cemeteries within city limits.

Paris' former Mines
Part of the reason nothing was done about Paris' untenable burial practices was a lack of ideas where to dispose of the dead exhumed from Paris' intra-muros parish graveyards. The government had been searching for and consolidating long abandoned stone quarries in and around the Capital since 1777, and it was the Police Lieutenant General overseeing the renovations, Alexandre Lenoir, who first had the idea to use empty underground tunnels to the outskirts of the capital to this end. His successor, Thiroux de Crosne, chose a place to the south of Paris' 'porte d'Enfer' city gate (the place Denfert-Rochereau today), and the exhumation and transfer of all Paris' dead to the underground sepulture began in 1786.

Creation, decoration
From the eve of a consecration ceremony on the 7th April the same year, behind a procession of chanting priests, began a parade of black-covered bone-laden horse-drawn wagons that continued for years to come. In work overseen by the Inspector General of Quarries, Charles-Axel Guillaumot, the bones were deposited in a wide well dug in land bought from a property, 'La maison de la Tombe Issoire' (a house near the street of the same name), and distributed throughout the underground caverns by workers below. Also deposited near the same house were crosses, urns and other necropolis memorabilia recuperated from Paris' church graveyards.
The catacombs in their first years were practically only a bone repository, but Guillaumot's successor from 1810, Louis-Etienne

Today was even nicer than the last few days. I went to the dollar store and a tack shop with my mom to buy some things and show her which Breyer I want for my birthday (which is in ten days). After that I ordered some pictures from London Drugs, and we went to get them at 9:00 and right now I am putting them up on my walls in my room. I also got a lot of stickers today. I'm becoming addicted to them. In this picture I'm on my wonderfully decorated porch eating lemon gelato.

Have a New Teenager by Friday: From Mouthy and Moody to Respectful and Responsible in 5 Days






Parents may survive the terrible twos and the first years of school all right, but the teenage years bring entirely new and alien creatures. So, parents have a choice: either send that teenager to boarding school and visit him when he reaches normalcy again (in about ten years) or choose to experience the best, most fun years of life--together! The secret is in how the parental cards are played.

With his signature wit and commonsense psychology, internationally recognized family expert and New York Times bestselling author Dr. Kevin Leman helps parents

communicate with the "whatever" generation
establish healthy boundaries and workable guidelines
gain respect--even admiration--from their teenager
turn selfish behavior around
navigate the critical years with confidence
pack their teenager's bags with what they need for life now and in the future
become the major difference maker in their teenager's life

Teenagers can successfully face the many temptations of adolescence and grow up to be great adults. And parents, Dr. Leman says, are the ones who can make all the difference, because they count far more in their teenager's life than they'll ever know . . . even if their teenager won't admit it (at least until she's in college and wants to know how to do the laundry).
