Art Escape

The internet has been down for five days which is annoying but in some ways a bit of a relief. I got so much done!! I am part of the committee that organises an annual open studio weekend which runs for two weekends Feb 26,27,28th and Mar. 5,6,7th. It's focus is on selling art and we have 39 artists taking part this year, all from our local area. The Coromandel has a great history in the arts (comparitively NZ wise) with a lot of alternative people (artists, musicians, craftspeople) moving here out of the cities in the 1960s.
It's hard times selling art but hopefully we can encourage people to shake the moths out of their wallets.

Excellent. Great impact, with under- and over-tones of fun. Running swastikas -- a symbol with an ancient, auspicious and deeply reverent lineage stretching back to the neolithic. Hitler was just an unimportant insignificant little splash in an ocean of hundreds of thousands of years.

Hey Cosmic...could you please be my publicist?? When I read reviews I wonder sometimes if it has anything to do with the artists real intent! I guess my intent is just images that well up out of my collective knowledge/experience and it's not until I have finished the piece that I ask myself 'where did that come from' and start analysing it. It usually surprises me!

Sorry to have a second go at this, but I have to add that Hitler's promise of a 1000 year Reich---that so inspired the German nation and people of the time---even were it a reality, would be a poor to mediocre achievement.

The Romans notched up 1700 years, roughly, including the empire and the republic. The ancient Egyptian civilisation fell just short of 4000 years.

And don't get me started on China or India. And others.

1,000 year Reich? Was that the most the Fuhrer could aspire to? A little man with little dreams.

Do we set our goals very high and accept second best when we fall short but are proud of what we achieved or do we set modest goals and be disappointed we didn't aim higher.
I tend to set flexible goals and hone them to suit the circumstances

The French gourmet cheese Bleu d'Auvergne has a wonderful aroma, a rich taste; the saltiness increases with the incidence of veining. The overall flavor is piquant but not overly sharp. Bleu d'Auvergne started life as an imitation of Roquefort, using cow's milk in place of sheep's milk. Legend has it that a peasant, around 1845, decided to inject his cheese with a blue mold that he found growing on his left-over bread (the motto being, waste not, want not). And thus, the gourmet cheese Bleu d'Auvergne was born. This French gourmet blue cheese comes from the region of Auvergne and the cheese is made from milk of Salers and Aubrac cows. The rind is very thin and so the cheese is usually wrapped in foil. The cheese is rich and creamy with a pale yellow color and scattered holes and well-defined greenish-blue veining. We cut and wrap this cheese in wedge of 8 ounces and 1 pound.

So I did it -- bought myself a [url=]Fatman iTube Dock[/url] and I am very happy to say that I am pleasantly surprised. I actually listened to one at a friend's house several months back and just couldn't get that quality out of my head because it really truly surprised me. I searched everywhere for a great deal and finally found it at [url=]Ordio[/url] in Westfield Bondi Junction. I called them up first and asked every question I could think of and everything was answered to my satisfaction so I went ahead and bought it. Shipping was surprisingly fast. Everything was as it should be. I'm pretty darn happy and I'm playing it right now. Not sure if they post outside of Oz but you won't be sorry if they do.

Suggestions on How to satisfy Girls for the Local mall

If you might be a single guy and aren't the easiest at getting significantly much less meeting girls and are wondering where by you would possibly visit discover and interact with a girl, then these ten acceptable hints on how to meet a gal along at the shopping mall, need to come in mighty handy.

1 - Go towards foodstuff court. Think it or not, the foodstuff court is a absolute top location in your shopping mall to fulfill a lady. Here's what you do. Pick a food position and get in line for the meal. While that you're in line, take a look around the region wherever anybody is sitting and eating. Appear for a girlfriend seated alone, and even two women sitting together. When you have your meal in hand, walk above to where by she or they're sitting and check with if you can actually join them. If you're sincere and straightforward with them, your chances are pretty wonderful.

2- Do some considering. Before you even think about heading towards mall to meet a young lady, sit your own self down and do some critical considering. Take into account how you could speak to a young lady and what you might say to her if you could be profitable. Give thought to which parts of a shopping mall you'll visit. Also, you're likely to need to invest in a thing whilst there, what do you may need? As a final point, give consideration to what meeting a girlfriend inside a public site entails. Absolutely you'll need to glimpse to get a wedding ring previously speaking to some young girl, and you may really have to take into account if it's wiser to speak with a chick alone or one particular who is with others. Eventually, you might have to be realistic about your personal age as well as ages among the girlfriend you would like to satisfy. As in, you are likely to would need to tell your own self being sensible and do not test to satisfy girls that happen to be quite a bit younger or older than you were, or that search out of your league.

three - Request benefit. As soon as you should be eventually along at the shopping mall, one for this approaches to fulfill women is by asking them for allow. Females understand that males have no thought what they are doing once they are buying, so asking for benefit will not seem such a ridiculous idea. Request assist in picking out a jacket for your self for instance. Doing so let's the woman know which you are single. If she agrees to help you, question her other queries as you grab totally different jackets to have a shot at on.
