The Last of The Glass (for now)

I am putting away the glass for a bit to focus on a polymer clay sculpture I promised to a friend.

In the meantime here are the last couple of pieces. Click on the pictures to see them jumbo sized.

I gave the blue plane to my dad.

The mirror is my Grandmother's. She asked if I could fix the backs of the mirrors (they were plastic mother-of-pearl discs which had decayed over the years). Kelli and I came up with the mosaic idea.

Fear of Commitment

I could never commit to a … hobby, lifestyle (?) for as long as this woman:

Woman's record-length fingernails broken in crash

Feb 12, 9:14 PM (ET)

SALT LAKE CITY (AP) - A Utah woman listed in the Guinness Book of World Records for her long fingernails has lost them in a car crash. Lee Redmond of Salt Lake City sustained serious but non-life-threatening injuries in the accident Tuesday.

Redmond's nails, which hadn't been cut since 1979, were broken in the crash. According to the Guinness Web site, her nails measured a total of more than 28 feet long in 2008, with the longest nail on her right thumb at 2 feet, 11 inches.

Salt Lake County Sheriff's Lt. Don Hutson says Redmond was ejected from an SUV in the crash and taken to the hospital in serious condition.

Redmond has been featured on TV in episodes of "Guinness Book of World Records" and "Ripley's Believe It or Not."

So, note to self, if you don’t clip your nails for 30 years, God might just do it for you.

God or a mid-sized late model sedan.

Separated At Birth

There’s a new Republican National Committee chairman and his name is Michael Steele.

Being a liberal who is not a member of any political party, you’d think the new guy at RNC would not even be on my radar but .... it’s eerie:

Michael Steele, Republican National Committee Chairman

Jeffrey Tambor, actor who appears in Arrested Development, The Larry Sanders Show, and in at least one episode of nearly every popular TV series since Kojak.
