Yesterday was a very good day…. I sold a lot of inventory (jewelry with turquoise and lampwork) of all different types. My work was appreciated. I was selling at Portland Center Stage in downtown Portland. Sometmes I feel down and not too talented, but yesterday proved me wrong. There is always room for improvement, but I think I had good items to sell and they got their just deserts. I feel accomplished. I think it was good, partly because the people who came to the sale are theatre buffs and appreciate the artful and the different and the dramatic. They also value one of a kind pieces. Thanks, Portland Center Stage!

Entertaining film. Violent however. Not for little children. De Niro and Pfeiffer are in top form. So is Tommy Lee Jones. Worth a rental.
Newsroom Monday, Jul 1 2013
We only get HBO of the premium channels and are catching up on the first season. Jeff Daniels is superb. No airhead anchor here. Bravo. Always thought provoking and on the dime of reasonably current events. Sam Waterston doesn’t disappoint either, elder statesman that he is. He is superb. And when Jane Fonda does brief appearances it is special. And of course everyone is great in the supporting cast. GREAT television. Mr. Sorkin has a winner after the West Wing….. Can’t wait for season 2.

Turquoise Gemstone meaning
Turquoise is one of the oldest protection amulets, and was also known as a symbol of wealth in many ancient cultures.

This stone is a very personal and meaningful stone to one who wears it. Turquoise takes on the characteristics of the owner.
Turquoise carries great wisdom of basic truth within it. It is one of the oldest stones known. This is a stone that a person must learn to attune to instead of the stone attuning to the person. It is important that the owner of a Turquoise give it the proper attention.
