Have you ever wanted to make jewelry for yourself or someone special? I'm teaching a jewelry making class starting in April--so you have until March 24 to sign up. In this class, students will learn how to create sterling silver necklaces, bracelets and pierced earrings that you'll be able to wear home on Day 1. Some basic techniques to be covered are making loops and coils, using a jig, attaching hardware, and oxidizing and texturizing silver. Using silver chain, wire, beads and hardware,… Continue

This Week's Inspiration: Indoor Edition!

Acrylic on 12" vinyl, "Dynagroove" Acrylic on 12" vinyl, "Dynagroove"

So, last week's hike took it all out of me, or I should say, my knee! It was swollen and sore all week and is just now starting to feel kind of normal again. Needless to say, we didn't go hiking this week. This totally bums me out, because we haven't missed a week in months and it's all thanks to my aging body! Getting old truly sucks! We did take a couple… Continue

C.S.I. Flying Star: Black Beans, Tight Jeans, and a Fork of Fudge

NOB HILL FLYING STAR--It is hard not to notice the torn cushions in this Flying Star. Every booth seems to have them. And it has not escaped the attention of the Morning Coffee Detectives. I don't want to sound overly concerned about something that is obviously out-of-sight as soon as one sits down, but I was determined to get to the bottom of to speak.

Edwin's Theory

The morning busser had a plausible explanation which… Continue

Is Writing Really for the Rich?

Francis Wilkinson in the March 4, 2009 edition of News & Opinion asks this question. It's a good discussion question for the Duke City Fix. It leads directly to the problems of the newspaper industry. Subscriptions are down due in major part to the development of the internet which provides a swift, cheap read delivered to your laptop. Writers may receive $300 for an… Continue

Wanna see 'em fall asleep and pick their nose?

I had an unusual Saturday night this week. I was on Twitter when I noticed an invitation from Gwyneth Doland of The New Mexico Independent to come to a live webcast at the Roundhouse in Santa Fe where she was live blogging with some other folks. Having never done either of these things before, I was intrigued, and so off I went to join them in live cyberspace. Live? Not being one to even think IM was anything but an annoyance while I am… Continue

Strange Days

“Strange days have found us. Strange days have tracked us down” –The Doors.

I can often be overheard spewing forth such tidbits as my continued genuine surprise at not winning the Powerball. Well guess what… I didn’t win again! On the bright side- I was only off by 5 numbers. But I have seen such strange “signs” in my world lately that it could happen. That… or it’s the… Continue
