A Spud For Your Stud...

...that's what my hubby said I should say if I were to put this on E-Bay. LOL! It kinda has the shape of a heart, don't ya think? Do you think I should put this on E-Bay? OK maybe not. Not any more stupid than anything else that gets put on there, though.

Beautiful Morning January 10th!

The drive to church, Sunday, was breathtaking! It had snowed just enough to have it stay on the trees and everything else. There was still a bit of fog, too. I had my camera in my purse and took pictures. So now I can share my beautiful drive with you. This first picture is taken not far from my home. It takes us 35 to 45 minutes to get to church. I hope these pictures show a little of the beauty we witnessed. And oh yeah, remember that these were taken from a moving car.
We were about 5 minutes from church when I took this picture of the sun.

This is amazing!

This is something I received in an E-Mail and thought I would post it on here.
This video shows the winner of "Ukraine's Got Talent", Kseniya Simonova, 24, drawing a series of pictures on an illuminated sand table showing how ordinary people were affected by the German invasion during World War II. Her talent, which admittedly is a strange one, is mesmeric to watch. The images, projected onto a large screen, moved many in the audience to tears and she won the top prize of about £75,000. She begins by creating a scene showing a couple sitting holding hands on a bench under a starry sky, but then warplanes appear and the happy scene is obliterated. It is replaced by a womans face crying, but then a baby arrives and the woman smiles again. Once again war returns and Miss Simonova throws the sand into chaos from which a young womans face appears. She quickly becomes an old widow, her face wrinkled and sad, before the image turns into a monument to an Unknown Soldier. This outdoor scene becomes framed by a window as if the viewer is looking out on the monument from within a house.. In the final scene, a mother and child appear inside and a man standing outside, with his hands pressed against the glass, saying goodbye. The Great Patriotic War, as it is called in Ukraine, resulted in one in four of the population being killed with eight to 11 million deaths out of a population of 42 million. Kseniya Simonova says: "I find it difficult enough to create art using paper and pencils or paintbrushes, but using sand and fingers is beyond me. The art, especially when the war is used as the subject matter, even brings some audience members to tears. And theres surely no bigger compliment."
