March Evening Sky Map


For anyone who is interested and can't preview this wonderful Sky Map for March, I can send you the website (and you can click on the heading above) so you can get it for your own latitude. Star gazing is my own personal way of keeping in touch with my place in the universe. Concerning outdoor activities of all kinds, being in touch with nature and our outside environment.....studies say that the average person only spends 10% of their time outdoors now. Shocking, isn't it? But I have to say, I'm not too surprised by that figure. It's my own theory that it is unnatural, unhealthy, physically and mentally, for a person to spend that much time indoors. I always feel a sense of renewal when I've been outdoors doing something. With Spring just around the proverbial corner, I find myself anxiously looking forward to being outdoors more, Sky Map in hand, learning more about the stars and feeling my place among them, riding my bike to work, gardening, taking monster walks with Rosie the beagle or just laying in the grass in the sun. ummmmm. I can hardly wait. First, Mexico!

The requests to get all of my scuba designs up on the site keep coming in. I'll do so, as I have the time. Remember, all of the designs are meant to be flexible and I can change the type to reflect wherever you might be going if it's applicable. Just click on the Dive Designs Label below to view all that I have on the site so far.

Spring T-shirt Time!

You can always pinpoint the day each year around here when people's minds suddenly awaken to the fact that Spring is just around the corner. Phone calls, estimates, inquiries, drop-ins suddenly start happening all at once. I can tell it's going to get busy around here really soon. Like now!
Over the last week, having discovered the CafePress.com site once again, I decided to experiment with setting up a store on it with a few of my designs. It's at http://cafepress.com/rainydaysstudio. With hundreds of thousands of products on it, not sure mine will stand out, but I hope so. Started with just 4 designs that I think others might like. Check it out and let me know what you think!
Happy Spring!

This is too perfect not to post. It expresses exactly how I am feeling after participating in some local "news" blogs. Heh heh

Retro T-shirt, "Northern Exposure" style

copyright 2007


I love that old television show and I'm so glad it's running on PBS right now. My favorite pasttime is looking at all the old great t-shirts the cast is wearing. Of course, Ruth Ann, the storekeeper has some of the best. I decided to recreate this one of hers.
