The Eve of a New Year

I must confess that I'm a Discovery channel junkie. I've seen every Deadliest Catch show several times over, and I watched them again yesterday when Discovery did their marathon. It was a pleasant diversion as I cut out and crimped a few hundred copper leaves in anticipation of making my copper and glass art items. My wife worked on applications for art shows we'd like to do in 2008. Our family doesn't seem to understand that we can't plan our schedule because it is dependent on our acceptance into the shows we apply to. It's such an iffy business, this arts and crafts thing. But it's great fun! Thanks for stopping by. Here's the hummingbird fact for today:

Hummingbird legs are very short and nearly useless. They cannot walk in the common sense and most often will become airborne even to turn around on a perch.

Introductory Blog

This is my first foray into the world of blogging. Everything I read says that I need this to help promote my business, so we'll see. We had great fun this past year traveling to arts and crafts shows and festivals. Now it sort of a down time and we're rather at loose ends here. There's a lot of end-of-the-year stuff to get done, but mostly we're just anxious for the show season to start up again. We're going to try something different this year. People have told us we'd do well at a lawn and garden show. We'll see. We've got one in February in Springfield, MO. I think that in order to make this blog interesting, I'll include a hummingbird fact with each post. Here's the first:

Hummingbirds have no sense of smell but their eyesight is excellent.
