* I was in 5 NEW art shows in November, I went to 6 movies, painted 15 paintings and I managed to write over 30 blogs, the month literally flew by. It looks like December is heading in the same direction. Guess what though, I am finally changing out my old 1995 printer and upgrading. Can you believe it, instead of 2 minutes to print one page I will now get 30 pages a minute. I just can't imagine it! Wow, I may actually get a few extra minutes ...
It's all fun.
