"Hello,
The air fresheners in the women’s bathroom on the 9th floor went missing sometime over the weekend. Many people on the floor bought them with their own money. If you know anything about where they might be, please see me. If you took them, please return them. We have a ticket in with building maintenance. It is possible they took them by mistake."

This was my response: I only responded to the sender, and building maintenance:

"It wasn’t me, but for the record there is no such thing as air freshener. (Other than a heavy rain and a strong wind.)
There is fragrance/perfume in a can, that doesn’t clear the air or cover up the stink that can happen in a restroom, it just traps it there longer and makes it smell even worse.
Why people are allowed to bring toxic chemicals to work and expose others to then is beyond my comprehension,
The propaganda of the fragrance industry will be exposed sooner than later, and rules will go in place that will protect us all from second hand fragrance. As studies are being conducted now at many major medical institutions (U of W Medical center is one of them), that will bring to light the toxic truth regarding that billion dollar industry. Just like what happen to the cigarette industry. Since 70-80% of the women & men who die from lung cancer (the number one killer of all cancers), are non smokers from non smoking environments."

This was his 38 flat head Harley with a suicide shift. That he built from parts found at junk yards. It was Black & Yellow, they wore soft leather helmets & goggles.



June 20th 1977, in the ICU @ UW Hospital I played some of my mom's favorite tunes on my alto flute as she took her last breath. She was 49, I was 22, I loved her very much, and still miss her as much today as I did back then. She was my best friend.

No jingoism celebration here, as our fellow americans still pose a bigger threat to our security and freedom than he ever did. You won't see me mourning his death and you won't see me celebrating either.

CONTINUUM: Gender Identities

Each of us exists somewhere on the continuum between female and male. For some of us, that space is clearly defined; for others, it is more fluid. Some of us move freely about in the world in our given skin; others shed that skin and create a new one. Given the bombardment of gendered messages women, men, boys, and girls receive through mass media each day; American society's uneasy quest to define marriage; our embattled don’t-ask-don’t-tell military policy; our acceptance or nonacceptance of celebrities who have "come out"; and the very intimate struggle of individuals, young and old, who are questioning their own place on the gender continuum, this subject is timely in a variety of ways.
The Ridgefield Guild of Artists is excited to announce that it will be mounting a national exhibition entitled Continuum: Gender Identities, opening April 30, 2011, through June 3. This exhibition, curated by artist Nancy Moore, parent of a transgender son, will be a powerful exploration of how artists choose to depict gender in their work: from traditional images of masculine and feminine (the gal in pink and pearls; the guy with a tool belt), to work that bends or questions the role of female and male.
Artists are invited to display their depictions of gender in any of its manifestations: in nature, in the human family, in a political context, as an abstract concept, as a personal statement. The exhibition will fill RGA’s three large gallery spaces, and the small upstairs gallery will house an exhibit of adolescent art on the same subject.
The Guild will provide an array of programming tied to the exhibit, such as artist walk-and-talks, guest lectures, performances, and book signings. (Thus far, S. Bear Bergman, author and performance artist and Ridgefield native, will be performing, dates to come; Books on the Common has agreed to do an author event; True Colors, an advocacy group for LGBTQ youth, based in Hartford and recently featured on CNN, will be holding an event in the space; a dance performance is under discussion; I've approached a very receptive Ridgefield Playhouse to host performances and documentaries. We expect to be reaching out to a wide variety of visual artists, writers, lecturers, community groups, and performers, between now and April.)
One impetus behind this exhibit is RGA’s intention to have a “big conversation in a small town”—that a dialogue between artists and audience can take place in an environment that’s not charged with the usual awkwardness surrounding this subject. The idea that art can create a safe space to explore timely and significant topics is a critical component of RGA’s mission.

A union employee, a member of the Tea Party, and a CEO are sitting at a table. In the middle of the table is a plate with a dozen cookies on it. The CEO reaches across and takes 11 cookies, looks at the tea partier, and says, "Watch out for that union guy, he wants a piece of your cookie."

Wednesday’s ambush in Wisconsin made it clear that the Republicans are willing to do whatever it takes to force their radical right wing agenda on America’s struggling middle class. I won’t stand for Speaker Boehner and House Republicans moving in lockstep with the Wisconsin GOP to escalate their assault on working families.

We’re just $27,109 away away from raising an astonishing total of $200,000 in grassroots dollars for our GOP Accountability Fund since Wisconsin Republicans rammed through legislation stripping workers of their collective bargaining rights.

Contribute $5 or more before Midnight Tonight to help put us over the top of our $200,000 GOP Accountability Fund goal.

The actions of Wisconsin Republicans and their allies in Congress have shown they were never serious about reducing budget deficits. Instead of taking on taxpayer subsidies for their Big Oil backers, they are intent on taking away power from middle class workers. Now, the question is what are we going to do about it. Let’s stand together.
