New Haircut

I got a new haircut Sunday morning. I kind of like it layered. It's not real drastic for the rest of the world to see, but it sure is for me. I have to work up to a haircut weeks in advance. My heart stops whenever I sit down in a hairdresser's chair and watch the locks come off. Those stylists waive their scissors around so nonchalantly. They don't realize the power they have over me. Snip, snip and my stomach churns as they try to give me what they think I want. I'm usually lucky to get a fake smile across my face before I run to the car and try to fix the mistakes in the rear-view mirror. This time, I didn't feel a need to run away from the evil salon people. I actually walked around the mall for awhile, had lunch and got a compliment from some lady at Perfumania. She liked my hair and I had to confess it was only an hour old. She said "Well, you KNOW it's a great style then... especially if a stranger tells you so."

Church Leader Blames Abortion For Social Security Problems

POSTED: 9:59 am EST January 17, 2005

SAN DIEGO -- A member of the governing board of the nation's largest black denomination said Social Security is in trouble today because baby boomers aborted much of the generation that would have supported their retirement.

Bishop George McKinney of the Church of God in Christ said, "Part of the problem that we're seeing now with Social Security has to do with the fact that 40 to 50 million people who have been killed through abortions have not taken their role as productive citizens."

McKinney said the Democratic Party's support for legal abortion and gay marriage has cost it support in the black community.

The Church of God in Christ is the nation's fourth-largest denomination -- and the largest black church group -- with about 5.5 million members.

I say that the current level of environmental degradation and future levels on this plant are due to more people not having ENOUGH abortions. Want to wipe out our species and our planet? Keep on poppin' out them babies!! It's GOD's WILL! We must procreate until we are piled 10 high on top of each other and killing one another for food to survive!

Jello Crane

©Punkin Dunkin Productions

If I don't explain myself, I'll get questions.

I've called it the Jello Crane because it is currently posted at the Overture Center construction site on State Street in Madison, WI. Because the Overture Center contains a large, odd-shaped glass dome on it's top, some reporter nicknamed it the "Jello Mold" (to fully understand, you'd have to have seen the original ink design drawings first published a few years was it ugly looking!! woof-woof....let's just pray the reality is better than the drawing). The Overture Center is one large block in downtown Madison and a few businesses along with the Civic Center were demolished to build this arts center. I'm not saying that's bad or good. I just don't like the design...yet. Of course I didn't like the Monona Convention Center when that was first built either. I guess these things just take time.

Quick Question: Do you use Lunarpages for your site?

Have you used Lunarpages in the past?
Do you have any helpful experience you could pass on to me?

I need a new site and Lunarpages looks promising. However, I need to pay for one full year up front. Is it worth it?

Thanks for any answers!

This is the carousel at House On The Rock in Spring Green, Wisconsin. My brother (being the oh so tactful person of the group) pointed out that on the ceiling of the room where this carousel resides, there are almost a hundred mannequins suspended in the air, dressed in toga style robes with angel wings and every single one of them has a nipple revealed. It would be a very family friendly room, if it wasn't for the blatant wardrobe malfunctions. But the attraction's defense, it's very dark in most of the buildings, so I'm sure most people don't stop to notice and count all the nipples.

You've Got Food, Right?

This is Boo. She's a Jack Russell. She has this insatiable appetite for playing ball, fetching her ball, making you play with her and throwing her ball back and forth for hours on end. She's really good at making you feel guilty for having food and not sharing with her. She's hyper and she jumps up and down to get your attention (just like the commercial a few years back where the lady says "Oh, they are only like that the first 8 years or so...” If I could have switched her with a stuffed dog at my aunt's house, which probably would not have gone unnoticed :), and smuggled her on the plane, she'd be here now. Unfortunately, I had to come home to two cats that weren't exactly thrilled to see me. They just wanted food...and Daniel felt the need to chew me out for leaving him at the vet's for a whole week. Poor Baby.

I really like the way this picture looks on this imac that I'm using right now. If only I could duplicate the settings on my own computer. Instead of a harsh black and white, it has a more brownish tone and gives the photo a more classical feel.

White Christmas

©Punkin Dunkin Productions

I got a EOS 300D Canon Digital Rebel for Christmas. I don't see much difference in quality on the web pictures. But printing is superior to my Fuji Finepix 2.0 and there are a ton of features. I also feel much more legit with this huge camera around my neck. It can command a little more respect than the point and shoot Fuji.

This is the first pic I took. We had a white Christmas. I stuck my head out the window and caught my father shoveling snow. It seemed like such a natural picture and a great smile. However my mother pointed out that my father doesn't usually smile when he's shoveling...
