Blue Sage Studios Work 12-05
We have posted new photographs of some of our currect glass blowing work. Brent set up the camera and slide film and spent about a day taking photos for submissions into arts festivals. Good stuff. I hope every one has a wonderful new year.

Pedastals in the Gallery


Ray Pemberton made these fantastic pedastals for the gallery and shows. They are really beautiful and show the glass off. It looks like I moved again as I snapped the picture.

Thanksgiving at Paul Newman's


Yes, it is true. Paul Newman is my cousin. We went to their place for thanksgiving. Here is a nice photo of the gathering.

Tuesday Price


Filled up at the Flying J. I say filled up but I have not hit the true full mark in who knows how long. I just don't seen to ever have enough on me to fill up all the way. That being said I have not got an accurate reading on the MPG on the Tacoma as of late. I would like to know how much I am getting a gallon.

Frost


It is difficult to see but there is some great frost on the windshield this morning. Perfect starlike crystals formed from the cold air and the wiper fluid. I have not found my good ice scraper so I need to drop by the local auto supply store to find a good one. This is Post Road in the morning too, on my way. It was a beautiful sky this morning as well. It should be a great day.
Have a good Thanksgiving if I do not talk to you all before then.

Torch and Beads


Here is the torch fired up for lampworking or bead making. It is fun and relatively easy. Brent has open torch night every Tuesday. Drop by and have a seat and make some beads. Brent will give a lesson on how to make different shapes and objects. We have everything you need at the studio for a successful bead making experience.

la Bagette Breakfast


We had brunch at La Bagette. It was very tastey. The French Toast was sort of breaded. It had a crunchy coating of goodness. They had strawberries and whipped cream which I got on the side. The coffee was good too. Strong and flavorful. They also have a gourmet grocery inside the place. Looks like great cheeses and meats and breads. Check it out if you get the chance.

Shell Bowl


Here is a nice shell style bowl. It is great color and form is pretty good. I made a companion piece to this one too. If you need a set of three let me know.

Dinner at Cafe Nova


Great food, great friends, great atmosphere, great waitress, great manager, even a great website.
This photo was after desert. I did not get one of the meal. I had a cheese plate that was outstanding. Three cheeses for $12. I had the swiss, hard goat, and the blue. wonderful presented the cheeses satisfied the palate. This is a must have item if you are into cheese or even like cheese, or even if you are afraid of cheese.
Angela got the Fried things and they were tastey. She also had the soup of the day and found it could have been the whole meal. She also got the Beets.
Joe and Joy our friends got salmon and the fish for dinner they like it muchly.
I had the Pasta Entree. I do not dig red sauces so they changed it up and went with a penne pasta and butter sauce. Rarely, have I been to a place that will make something off the menu so easily and happily. The pasta had shrimp, mussels, and lobster. It was coated in a nice parmasean cheese that melted in nicely. Probably one of the best pasta meals I have had in a long while.
The Manager Wade brought us out desert. Chocolate tort with some chesscake layer and graham cracker crust. It was a delight. Smooth and tastely. the chocolate was understated and sweet without being sugary. It was no trouble to finish it off. Everyone liked the lemon tort except for Joy. The filo dough something was good too but if chocolate is on the table why eat anything else.
So Cafe Nova located on Western and like 43rd is my most recommended new place to eat in OKC. The price may be a bit out of reach but for a treat it is most worth it.
Ice will like the bar to be sure.

Flying J


This is from the Flying J 11-15-05 around 9:30 pm. I think it is still the best price in town at $1.91. Predictions? Will gas go back up next week to gear up for Thanksgiving travel or stay low so at least George won't get any more heat for the price at the pump?

French Toast for Breakfast


I had my french toast for breakfast at the 501 Cafe this morning. I really dig their FT. If you make in on a Sunday morning get there at least 15 minutes before 11 or there is a wait. Ask for Bill if he is working and tip him big as he is going to be a teacher some day.
Good coffee, too.

Turbine Blades


At the RR crossing at Britton Road this morning we saw what could be the blades of a wind turbine. These things were huge. Not a great photo as we were back a ways.

Mobile Phone Pictures

I am liking the mobile phone picture thing. It is easy to move and get a blurry shot. The lights at night mess with the thing too. They are decent little cheap cameras. Do you all have camera's on your phones? Lets see some photos. I have a plan addition for $4.95 a month that lets me send 400 messages. I think it may be worth it. If you get tired of the photos too let me know.
Have a great weekend.

Large Platter


Here is a large platter Brent made. It is a beautiful color.

Gas Prices


$2.02 at 7-11 this morning on the way to work. Last night at Flying J it was $1.95. Still about the best in town I suppose. Saving seven cents a gallon is not a lot until you add it up. $25 to fill up and I was able to save $1.75 or was able to purchase almost a whole gallon more of petro fuel.
Have fun.

Jacking a Paperweight


The process of cutting in a line where the paperweight breaks free of the punty is called jacking. Here is a paperweight being jacked by one of our students at Blue Sage. Again the focus is a bit off but almost right on. The biggest reason for the blur is the constant movement of the glass.

Bobby at El Parian


We celebrated the birthday of Angela's friend Bobby at El Parian in Edmond this eveing. 29. It was a tastey meal of Flautas. Their Sopapia's are really a taste treat as they are small little pillows. Angela had the goat platter. It was really quite good. Check out this place when you can.

Breakfast at 501


I had a great omlette at Cafe 501 in Edmond today. Mushroom, Ham, avacado. Delish. The focus on the camera phone needs some tweaking. I am not sure how to improve upon that as of yet.
Enjoy...

I took this on my new Motorola 330. I then sent it around the web and researched and found the go.blogger.com feature. Send in a photo and it posts to the web. Just a couple of settings to change. If I keep doing this I will have to update my phone service to account for the increase in text and images being sent. I think this is very keen and I think the moblog is going to rule the world.

Laptop Troubles

I got the horrible noise from the laptop, whirring and grinding. I shut it down. Bad message then appears. No Operating System Found. Next day, all clear. It is most bizarre. I started backing everything up just to be safe. How can you back up the entire drive?
I also got a new computer for the studio. We will be running CAT-5 out the the studio and we will be connected. I would like to figure out how to get multiple webcams going then. Very cool stuff. If you all have not checked out the studio as of late you need to drop by. A couple of photos posted over at Flickr and my Blue Sage Studios Glassblowing Blog too.
Maybe we will see of you over Fall Break at the Misletoe Market too.

Martin Sexton

If you have the oppertunity to go see Martin Sexton please do so. Talk about some good tunes. I was listening to James Berkshire play on Saturday over at Lottinvilles Wood Grill and he played a couple of Sexton tunes, some Neil Young and some of his own stuff. Sierra sang September something by Green Day. It makes for a great evening sitting on the patio and listening to live music while being waited on by some of the best staff in the metro.
Things are going well but busy. It is nonstop action it seems. Everything is looking good however so we are just keeping on.

Coffee

I was out and about yesterday and ran into the Dirty Water Coffee Company guy. He caters coffee. I really do wish I had a good coffee shop close by. Still the best cup in town is from Barbara over at Coffee Dan's on Main in OKC. Fresh roasted and mighty tastey and cheap at half the price.
Fortune over at BCCY has noted that $*'s is not really in the coffee selling business. They make milkshakes. I finally understand the appeal. I love a good milkshake. Add a bit of coffee to a milkshake and I like it all the more. Add some chocolate and whipped cream and I will put four dollars down on the counter with neary a thought.
Peace.

A Difference

It is interesting that the way I view this blog at home and at work are completely different. The filters we are using block content. It is like seeing the blog just halfway. Strange things indeed. Thanks for reading and keeping up with my life. It really is a pleasure to communicate with others across the void of binary space.

Bella Forte Glass Studio

Bella Forte Glass Studio If you have not checked out Bella Forte you need to drop by the blog and take a look. My buddy Chris is a pizza man by trade and just opened up a glass studio at his house. Chris makes the best pizza in Yukon and maybe on this side of the Mississippi at Italian Jim's on Mustang Road and Reno. I highly suggest his nachos. Anyhow I digress as his glass is certainly on its way to becoming a site to behold like his Pepperoni Delux Pizza.

Leap

Okay. I made the leap I changed my template. I think I have some items back correctly. I think it will be a good template. I wish it was variable width instead of fixed. They need to tell us these things on the blogger template chooser. I copied and pasted the old template to Dreamweaver and then got my new one. I copied and pasted the old items over. One problem. My old template did not support titles so I never put them in. The new one is putting my old posts to the side with text from the first line instead of a title. I suppose I could go back and add titles to all my posts. What great fun that would be...

The Studio

Well if you have not come out to Blue Sage Studios as of late you need to drop by. Things are changing in the studio. We have remodeled a lot. With a new building. Redoing the working floor. We added a torch room so as we can offer bead making and flameworking classes. If you are interested in making beads drop us a line. Anyway it is so cool.
I can not find the good Mud Pie Ice Cream made by Starbucks at my Target any longer. I went with Fudge Ripple with chocolate covered almonds. It was a tastey treat over the weekend.

change for the template

I am thinking about changing my template. I am getting rid of stuff that is not necessary. I am afraid to change it completely because it will lose some information like the scripts and things I have added over time. I am losing some functionality like with the comments going away so I switched over to Blogger comments. So over the next few days you might see some changes to the whole. I did see one or two blogger templates I liked and may go with one. I do have to change things as BlogRoll is blocked here. I can not see my links out to everyone's pages without it and like with numbers in my cell phone I know not anyone's blog address.
Have fun this week.

Everything is going alright. My dad did great in getting a new pacemaker. He was up and around all weekend and visited us at the OKCCC Arts Festival often. We had a decent show. It was not just gangbusters but with the economy and all it was really pretty good. People really seemed to like our glass and were interested in the process.
Looking forward now to the OCU Regatta, An Affair of the Heart and Miseltoe Market next month. Brent will also be down in Austin for the Pecan Street Festival near the end of September.
Blogroll no longers shows with the filters we are using. It is driving me crazy.

Get a hamburger and ched-r-bites or some other wonderous food selection and then...
Ask for the Mocha Java Freeze. Sonic Ice, strong coffee, whipped cream, chocolate syrup. What more could anyone want especially at 10:30 at night. Woo Hoo!
Go there now!
My dad goes into this afternoon to have his pacemaker replaced. I hope it goes well. It does not sound like a very big deal. This should help with the energy level too.
I am accessing my blogger site and some features are gone. Sites and content are blocked. I am frustrated with this blocking software. It blocks by word and some good stuff gets filtered out.
Drew makes coffee every morning. Much better then stopping at 7-11. Now don't get me wrong 7-11 makes good stuff with sugar and half-n-half, any coffee is better. But Drew's is strong and fresh and tastey.

All is well. We do not have AC in the building. A flood got to the panel and blew the fuses. Hot, tired, hungry, and busy.

I am back in town. I got back last week but slept most of the time since then. Something about being home, airconditioning and not really having to do anything.
The trip was good. I really enjoyed South Dakota and everything and everyone up there. It was perhaps the best trip I have had up there to date. It just gets better. I hope everyone there continues to be well.
Not much news. School starts soon and will be busy. I am looking forward to a great year too.
It is good to be back.

Hey now,
I am packing and getting ready to my trip. It shold be a good one. I got some new boots for the journey. Always a good thing.
All is well.
I have been trying to get caught up on everything. Here is my pattern. I know this and I still struggle with it. I wait. I have things to do. I know they need to be done. I wait. Deadlines pass but I figure I can let it slide. Then I come to a deadline of doing or not doing. They need to be done. I have no choice but to do them or not. No longer can let it slide. Do the thing takes really very little effort or time. It is in the doing I lack.
I think this post is similar to one from about six months ago. Continue to repeat the same thing. Knowing today the results will be similar. Talk about your crazy defects of character.

The movie was great. I really did enjoy the tale. It is a must see to be sure. In reading the inside mind of Vader at http://darthside.blogspot.com/ i know more about the driving force (no pun intended) behind the man. I wish I knew more of the lore behind the Jedi at times. Looking at the net there is a lot of poorly written articles with nothing very substatial. I do wonder about the prophecy. It is referred to several times. I remember it being that Anakin would be the one to restore balance to the force. Granted balance is tricky. But then I read something about the son of Sun online and it is confusing.
Anyway, go see it.

Goddess of the Harvest. Interesting choice I am sure for Kimbo. I was searching quickly. I was thinking of fertility. I later saw the picture of Athena and that would have been better. Artemis would have been good too. there is something in the name Demeter tho that just sounds good. If you would like to choose another goddess Kim I will edit the post to reflect your choice.

Information Society
We have gone the way of the hunter/gatherer societies of old. Granted on the planet there are still small bands or tribes who practice the sustanible living traditions of their forefathers and survive as part of the ecosystem. Modern culture however is living in the information age. Thinking of the hunter/gatherer I figure that people are now hunters and gatherers of information.
With blogs and RRS feeds and information flowing in from all directions (check out google news) we have developed our skills to assumulate information as if we were hunting bison on the great plains.
The social order to the blog culture comes into play next. Those people who are on top of the social order for the information they gather and then dispurse to others. I have not read Andrew Sullivan but from what I am aware he would be like the high priest of the blogger sect. Wondering then do we have the heros and antiheros of myth built into our blogs.

What could we wrong? Everyday after lunch I have to take a nap. I get so incrediably tired I just pass out in my chair. I am getting enough sleep at night. I am simply exhausted.

Today is Cinco De Mayo. the Fifth of May. What is everyone doing to celebrate?
A friend of mine opened a new resturant in Edmond, Nino's. It is on Second and Santa Fe. I have not eaten there yet. I hope it does well even though nothing else has made it at that location.

I found a friend from high school today online. Check out the So Blog Me! link over on the left. Jeff was always a cool guy and still is from reading his blog and articles at his site. Coffee is on the slate for the near future.
Interesting reading as of late on the net. There is so much information out there on so many different topics and issues. Styles of pages, personal blogs and info. It really can be a lot to ingest.

The weekend was great. The Edmond Art Festival was really a very good time. Thank you to all those folks who came by for a visit.

Earth Day - Today we celebrate and hearld our world. Upon which we stand with all the creatures great and small.
I often wonder why the conservative part on the right is not for the conservation of the earth. It seems counter to the name.
Alas.

I was having coffee yesterday afternoon. My new good coffee shop in Edmond, The Perfect Harmony Cafe is going to close. They do not have enough business to keep going. I am so very sad. I wish I had some money to invest besides my daily dose of coffee.
Thursday. It is an interesting day. If you have not yet visited the downtown Festival of the Arts you need to do so. It is really nice. There is a bunch of art and I always run into someone I know there. Good food too. There is some great glass there as well. Check out what people are making. Then come visit our booth next weekend at the Edmond Arts Festival and see what we have been making.

Wow, there is now a recover post thing here at blogger. Can you imagine that we were not the only ones troubled with the posting not going through and losing everything we worked so diligently to produce. I just hope I don't have to use it.
I hope everyone is well. I plan on updating the Friday Foto Fun catagories tomorrow. If you have any suggestions for a topic please let me know.
Peace.

Can anyone say testing? 7th grade geography online test. It is a crazy week. I am not in my room so there is little time to sit at the computer and do the things that need to get done.
Try to stay with me if I forget to blog a bit.

Friday, April 08, 2005

Notice the Friday Foto Fun did not change. I could not get any pictures last week and did no better on this one.
I think the time change has really effected me in a negative way. I go to bed on time but can not seem to rise at the right time. I just keep hitting snooze. Gimme back my hour. It would be worth living in Arizona.
Have a great weekend. Be sure to visit the blue sage studios blog to keep up to date on happenings at the studio and glassblowing there. I will try to get a posting up of Spring and summer shows soon too.
Peace

Check out this website. You can claim a grid on the map. It is a bit tedious but very cool indeed. You can go by longitude and latitude. Upload a small picture. Provide a link. Give it a try and let me know what you think.
Kimbo, can we create an interactive Flash map of Oklahoma with all of the historical markers in the state?

Blogger is blocked from school. I can not update pages there. I have requested the filter to be lifted. We shall see.
Peace.

I am going to try to remember to take my camera with me this evening. Hopefully I can get some fotos for the Friday Foto Fun. I did see a robin this morning and wished I had had my camera.
Keep on keeping on.

Friday Foto Fun - Updated.
I have been remiss in updating the FFF. It is not difficult but I just keep running out of time. I do not have time to take a photo much less change the headings. I figured if I do not change the headings I do not have to take the photo. Poor logic to be sure but effective none the less.
Thanks for sticking with me.

The Channel Four spot on Blue Sage Studios and our glassblowing. Very cool. Check it out if you get the change. You may need a fast connection.

Mrs. Huff's English classes

Mrs. Huff's English classes Mrs. Huff has joined the blogging ranks. Very cool.
I am now a technocrati. I have no idea what that means really but it is something on the net and it is free and the benefits are unknown. In an effort to get Blue Sage Studios and glassblowing some recognition I am trying to get involved on the net. Figure it can't hurt. Granted there is a very limited audience for what it is I do and talk about and whatnot. By limited I mean the five people who read this blog on any regular basis. Interesting.

Heading to Wichita. Should be a hoot. Check out http://bluesagestudios.blogspot.com for more details to the trip.
My plan was to get up early every morning and go into the coffee shop. I have been sleeping later and later every day thus far. I did not make it to the Perfect Harmony Cafe today. Tomorrow we are planning to drive up to Wichita to look at some glass blowing there. It should be good fun.

Jenkies, Time sure does fly. I am amazed it is monday and Spring Break is here. I am planning on being at the Coffee Shop (Perfect Harmony Cafe every morning around 8:00 am. I will act like I am working. That is I will be working on things but not at work as it were. This way I should get some things completed that I have been holding off upon.
Last night Angela and I ate at Kang's Asian Kitchen. I can not tell you how good it was. It is difficult to try something new at times. We love asian food and were nervous. Now when Zack and I visited China we found a place in Beijing that served the best Peiking Duck. Last night at Kang's I ordered the Peiking Duck. It was incrediable. The flavor was great. I highly recommend it. Angela had Thai Basil Chicken. Again, great flavor. Excellent melding of ingredients. She also got some wrinkle beans that were really good from a guy that does not like beans too much. The only thing lacking was the Cafe Su Da. I like my Vietmanese Iced Coffee a little stronger and sweeter. This was not quite right but probably would be for some. The atmosphere was really good. great colors. very comfortable. Great date place. Also a gathering of couples place. And I would think a family would enjoy it too. We are definately going back.

Blogs under attack? Blogger is not posting. Errors galore. Blogrolling is not working. Errors galore. It must be a conspiracy. Someone is hacking the net. All of the things we have come to rely upon are being taken down.
Fight Club was on last night. That movie is halirious.
Awareness of the cosmic nature of the spirit of the universe. Forgive me if I get out there for a little bit. I read the other day about God being manifest in our lives at the times of greatest hardship and when our abilities are pushed far beyond our capabilities. That is when God shows himself in our lives. God is also supremely manifest at the times of greatest and highest spiritual exprience. The Peak and the Valley as it were.
How then do we better bring God into the everyday. I try to live in the middle. Avoid the high and the low. Do I miss the presence of God because I miss those extremes? I think bringing the spirit of universe into the daily is vital and key as human beings.
My buddy Ron said that God is like a radio station that is broadcasting everyday all the time. It is up to us to tune our personal radios into the God station.

Busy day. Something is just hinky with the whole network. Printing is off. Laptops are down. Internet is blinky.
Sunspots?

Do any of you know anything about the 7th grade geography test? It is going to be online. How do they expect this thing to happen. I hate to sound like chicken little but I do believe the sky is falling.

Thinking today. Can one ask for a better way to start the day then in Perfect Harmony. I got a cup of Galapagos Island brew. Very nice.
