Graduation Day!

The Art "Brains" of the Sr. Class - (left to right) Janet (my wife) (Magna Cum Laude) and friends Christine (Summa Cum Laude) and Brenda (Magna Cum Laude) celebrate Graduation Day at Emory and Henry College. Janet ended up with a 3.86/4.0 where Summa Cum Laude requires 3.9 - you woulda thought they could have rounded it up! Not bad though for someone who gets to celebrate their 50th birthday next February (now how many would guess that is a 49 yr old graduate? - Not many, I suspect - she is the Dick Clark of the female world. LOL ) But I gotta brag and say that Janet stole the show with her Sr. Art Show representing a lost civilization off the coast of Africa - visitors to the gallery were actually fooled into thinking it was truly was a lost civilization and thought the artifacts were real (Janet created them).

Janet is now going to take a break after 3 years of staying up till midnight each night cracking the books, 7 days a week. Will explore what she wants to do in the world of Art and I have no doubt will accomplish whatever she chooses to do. She might not strike it rich, but she will enrich her soul, something the ol' greenback fails rather miserably at doing.

Here are a couple of free programs I stumbled across the other day that are quite useful. Folder Box and an automatic Zip program for attachments sent via Outlook Express. The Folder Box is particularly useful for moving files amongst different drives on one's computer. You might find some of the other programs on that page useful as well.

Quote of the Day
Art will remain the most astonishing activity of mankind born out of struggle between wisdom and madness, between dream and reality in our mind.
Magdalena Abakanowicz (1930 - )
Polish sculptor and graphic artist.
