You gonna eat that figgy paper?

I never really knew fresh figs until I moved to Alabama. There used to be a “fig man” down the road that sold a box of figs for about $12. I think it was a gallon of figs, but it seemed like a lot more. Man they are like candy! So good, sweet, soft, mmmmmmm yummy. So I guess it was the summer before last we found him and started stocking up on figs. Well not so much stocking up, as getting them and eating them like crazy for a month. Then last year the fig man died, and his wife tried to sell them. She wasn’t available daily like he was, but when she was, we’d load up on a box of figs every time we drove by. I believe they were mission figs.

Bob Ross, The Happy Painter

Bob Ross: The Happy Painter from Carol Jennings on Vimeo.

“Bob Ross, one of the most iconic figures in public television, seems deeply familiar to viewers but fundamental information about him has never been revealed. What is Bob Ross’ story as a man and an artist? How did The Joy of Painting get started? And what was it about Bob himself that made him such a compelling figure “?

“Blue Ridge PBS will answer these questions and more with this one-hour, high definition documentary. Some of the most surprising elements of the program are the interview segments with celebrities who learned to paint the Bob Ross way including Brad Paisley, Jane Seymour and Terrance Howard. Blue Ridge PBS also secured an interview with Phil Donahue, who played an important role in Bob Ross’ career by featuring the artist on his Chicago-based show “.

a 1 hr. Documentary on my “Old Friend”. Airing here in Tx. next Sat.

One of the nicest,honest,happy men, I’ve ever had the pleasure to know.A great teacher of Art too….I miss him and the times we painted together…This man, is solely responsible for opening my eyes to Gods plan…

John was the cynic, George was the quiet one, Ringo the clown, and Paul the cute one. These traits were commonly accepted, but belied the depth of character possessed by each of the four members of the Beatles. Once free of the burdens of being Fab, each in his own way shed these images and came into his own as an individual in the public eye, and none more successfully than Paul McCartney.

As his creative influence had come to dominate the Beatles in the studio while the others’ interest waned, Paul was poised for a smooth transition into a solo career. From his early homespun releases to the bombastic pop of Wings and beyond, “the cute one” has proven himself consistently to be a world class singer, musician, composer, producer and, most of all, entertainer.

Sir Paul’s excellence is well on display in this 1990 performance. Graciously celebrating American independence in the nation’s capital, McCartney and band offer a comprehensive survey of his entire career. The set list is of course heavy with classic Beatles’ numbers like “Hey Jude” and “Let It Be”, and the lesser-known but no less outstanding “Things We Said Today.” He also includes a few other gems like Wings’ “Band on the Run” and a smattering of songs from his then-current album, Flowers in the Dirt.

Though a couple songs here may be better left forgotten, the jaunty pop of “This One” and “My Brave Face” (the latter co-penned with Elvis Costello) prove that Paul’s still got the gift for sweet melodies. Also forgiven is the rather sterile ambient quality of the proceedings: it’s likely that his early touring experiences before suitable P.A. systems were capable of making anything other than adolescent howling audible has left Paul with a preference for clarity above all else in his live mix.

There were not many opportunities to see or hear the Beatles performing live, much less with any sort of reasonable fidelity, making documents like this all the more exciting.
Here’s an opportunity to hear a bona fide legend perform the songs that changed music forever.


Native American Code of Ethics….

1. Rise with the sun to pray. Pray alone. Pray often. The Great Spirit will listen, if you only speak.

2. Be tolerant of those who are lost on their path. Ignorance, conceit, anger, jealousy – and greed stem from a lost soul. Pray that they will find guidance.

3. Search for yourself, by yourself. Do not allow others to make your path for you. It is your road, and yours alone. Others may walk it with you, but no one can walk it for you.

4. Treat the guests in your home with much consideration. Serve them the best food, give them the best bed and treat them with respect and honor.

5. Do not take what is not yours whether from a person, a community, the wilderness or from a culture. It was not earned nor given. It is not yours.

6. Respect all things that are placed upon this earth – whether it be people or plant.

7. Honor other people’s thoughts, wishes and words. Never interrupt another or mock or rudely mimic them. Allow each person the right to personal expression.

8. Never speak of others in a bad way. The negative energy that you put out into the universe will multiply when it returns to you.

9. All persons make mistakes. And all mistakes can be forgiven.

10. Bad thoughts cause illness of the mind, body and spirit. Practice optimism.

11. Nature is not FOR us, it is a PART of us. They are part of your worldly family.

12. Children are the seeds of our future. Plant love in their hearts and water them with wisdom and life’s lessons. When they are grown, give them space to grow.

13. Avoid hurting the hearts of others. The poison of your pain will return to you.

14. Be truthful at all times. Honesty is the test of ones will within this universe.

15. Keep yourself balanced. Your Mental self, Spiritual self, Emotional self, and Physical self – all need to be strong, pure and healthy. Work out the body to strengthen the mind. Grow rich in spirit to cure emotional ails.

16. Make conscious decisions as to who you will be and how you will react. Be responsible for your own actions.

17. Respect the privacy and personal space of others. Do not touch the personal property of others – especially sacred and religious objects. This is forbidden.

18. Be true to yourself first. You cannot nurture and help others if you cannot nurture and help yourself first.

19. Respect others religious beliefs. Do not force your belief on others.

20. Share your good fortune with others.

Good Sunday morning….

May The Great Spirit Smile down on you and keep you and yours safe
May the trail rise up to meet you
May the wind be always at your back
May the sunshine warm upon your face
May the rain fall soft upon your fields
And until we meet again
May The Great Spirit hold your hand in the palm of his hand
