20180503: #OccupyISS_IntSpaceStation Why doing something instead of just talking is needed.

Let’s form a committee to discuss forming a committee to recommend a committee to study the idea of creating a committee…

And the ship STILL SANK!

20171004: A Little more like Home…

I have been busy, as you can see, I can now cook food in a semi kitchen area.

20170927_164540_FB

Yes, that cooking hot plate arrangement is wired together to keep it stable, but to be able to cook and have room for doing so & a place to clean dishes is very nice.

Shelves on the wall even to keep things out where I can see them instead of having to hunt around in this box or that box.  I grew up sailing and did consider sailing around the world solo. So yes I can use my laundry hanging system, the wet stuff goes over the sink till it stops dripping. Also I have the water cooler set up so I don’t have to try to filter my  tap water any more. (just behind the stove)

I also have my wire rack set up for going outside and selling on the street. I did this the other day and spent several hours out there. I did not sell anything, (did not expect too), I am just getting people use to seeing me out there.

The people who did stop and look or read my sign over the doorway made the day worth it and a success. I have owned a dozen businesses, never expect to be an overnight Success. But build it up by being there. I have run business for others some of whom never learned that lesson and complained that running a business was too hard…

I will start being out on the street outside the building several hours a day, on at least Thursday thru Sunday when the main tourist days are.

So, while life is not great, I do survive. One step after another gets you to the end of the journey…

I hope this helps others to understand & survive their struggles in life.

The flavor in life comes not from always getting your way.

But from being able to say “Wow, I survived once again!”

What an adventure life is when you live it!

20170315 9 Fathoms video screenshot

OK, I started to study ADOBE AFTER EFFECTS in January 2017. I had a conversation with a person about doing a music video. I got a vision of what I wanted to do.

This is the DEMO release of it. I need to go back and adjust the timing of some images and smooth out some motions & transitions.

However, this is about 90% plus of that vision in action. Totally self training here, I have no one to confer with on this. YouTube has supplied me with the training videos and MY own get in there and PLAY around, trial & re-try attempts after attempts….

Enjoy the show folks!

To give people an idea of the graphic elements and power in a graphic design house, here is a collage to show the wide range of stuff, I can play with to make a postcard or a billboard graphic.
