At the bus stop

Last Friday I picked up my new eyeglasses.  While waiting for the bus home, these two birds (sand hill cranes maybe?) also seemed to be waiting for a bus.  They did not get on my bus, perhaps they were waiting for the southbound bus.

Way cool art show in Sarasota

If you live in the Sarasota, FL area, or are planning a visit soon, here is something to put at the top of your things to do list.  My dear friend Amy Zeusler has an art show happening at The John Carl Spa, 1345 Second Street in downtown Sarasota.  Titled “AQUA: A Journey Through the Inky Depths,” this is an exhibition of works in India Ink.

Here are some examples (though photos on a web page never do this kind of work justice).

The show continues thrugh Feb. 16, hours are Mon-Sat, 8-5.  Be sure to check it out, and tell them I sent you (if you really want to see a confused look on someone’s face).

My favorite chocolate milk

I will admit, I haven’t tried every brand out there.  There could be something I would like better… but I doubt it.  To me, the best chocolate milk on the market in the U.S. is Promised Land Midnight Chocolate Milk.  I think Prince might have written Nothing Compares 2 U while contemplating an empty bottle of this chocolate nectar.

Traditional Quality

For over 200 years these pencils have been made the traditional way out of the remnants of Fort Ticonderoga so your pencil will be mightier than the sword.

Road Trip!

Hop on your hobby-horse and head on over to Barnes & Noble.  Go to the coffee shop.  Get yourself a slice of Hershey Chocolate Cheesecake.  Do this ASAP, while brick & mortar B&N stores still exist.

What are you waiting for?  GO!
