BAT THE BAT



"Changing project for possible bat habitat is absurd.
If you've ever doubted that our federal government has spiraled out of control and
turned our nation into a quagmire where it's almost impossible to get anything done, consider this........."

RENTAL---FRANK LLOYD WRIGHT

The other day I received several comments, several emails and the loan of a Frank Lloyd Wright Biography regarding my post earlier this week.

During the night, someone sent me information about a home in Ann Arbor, MI for rent by the night or week designed & furnished by Mr. Wright.

Click on the titles below, for photos and rental information. Make sure to check out the photos of the Wright designed furniture.

Jack Harden, Don Gunnerson, Glen Abel

For the past couple of weeks, a minute here & twenty minutes there I played Jack, Don & Glen in a way. The three are famed architects from Licking County, not just in Licking County, Ohio, but nationwide. I have always admired there upbeat modern designs of the past 40 years or so. I have been lucky to know all three.

I have always enjoyed Frank Lloyd Wright's designs and skills. If I would ever move again, it would be to a modern designed home. It would not be as grand as Fallingwater in Pennsylvania.

The project and photos below was all made possible by Lego's Architecture Series (811 pieces) and my birthday gift from my sister Robin. Please note the set is for 16 years old and over!



"Bring out he nature of the materials, let their nature intimately into your scheme...
Reveal the nature of the wood, plaster, brick or stone in your designs,
they are all by nature friendly and beautiful."
Frank Lloyd Wright-1908

Shooting the breeze..............


Shooting the breeze makes for a cool summer
BY CRAIG WILSON
"Now that we're in the thick of summer, it's a good time to discuss the best place to sit out these proverbial lazy hazy days."
"Maybe because the past winter was so snowy and isolating, we decided we needed a change of scenery this summer. We needed more socialization. A different perch."

GEORGE STEINBRENNER-What I have learned

My dad never let me have an allowance. He gave me chickens. I had to feed them, gather the eggs, and sell them. I kept ledgers. I had to run it like a business. When I went off to military school, I sold the business to my sisters for too much, and they haven't liked me since.

The ability to have is so you can do things for others. If you can do things for others who are less fortunate, then it will come back to you.

When it comes to hiring, number one for me is loyalty. I want a person who's devoted to the task.

Opportunity’s Knocking — Will You Open the Door?

June FireRescue Leadership Skill

That Noise You Hear … It’s the sound of opportunity knocking—will you open the door?
By Chief Marc Revere

There’s a fable about a lumberjack who was purported to be the best in the land and had won numerous competitions. The edge of his axe blade was honed to perfection; the tried and true methods he used were passed down from his father and his father before him. He was in the prime of his life and his strength, but he never changed his techniques or invested in new technology. One day, a lanky youngster challenged him to a tree-felling competition. The lumberjack laughed and took the bet. They squared off, facing their respective stand of trees, and the starter yelled, “Ready, set, go!” at which point the kid drop-started his chainsaw. The lumberjack dropped his axe and with a look of bewilderment on his face, exclaimed, “What’s that noise?!”

Are there people in your organization who are like that lumberjack—professionally limited by their resistance to change, confined to their comfort zone? Such people don’t appreciate the benefits of lifelong learning. They fail to understand the concept of “accept, adapt and accelerate—or atrophy.” Like the lumberjack, they fail to even realize that atrophy has already set in.

Quick + Easy Lunch

Once every two weeks or so, the Duke's Duchess Shop is the place to pick up a quick sandwich and chips. The sandwich is fresh and the cashier is friendly. The best part: no drive up menu and window to slow down your mission on getting back to the office for a desk lunch.

ELBOWS NEVER GET COLD

Top Ten Tricks of the Tailor: #4
Stitch on some Patches

Having your tailor add some elbow patches to your jacket is but another great embellishment, especially as fashion begins to gear up for F/W a couple months from now. Then again, there are ways to keep your patches hot-month friendly.

Elbow patches are such a great way to spice up your jacket because they serve as a somewhat subtle way to build contrast and add elements to your outfit. For lighter weight jackets that you’re likely to don in those summer months, consider lighter weight patches in bright pastel colors in cotton or suede that contrast with the rest of your jacket. For the cooler months, look into muted suedes and leather. Consider varying the materials: flannel, denim — get creative. It’s hard to mess up here.

And don’t forget to do this on your shirts and sweaters.

All you’ve got to do is lay down a little coin for some fabric (buy half a yard if you can) and take it in. It’s one of the easier jobs a tailor can do. Cut and sew. You’re looking at a cheap operation sure to enhance your look.
Last year I had two favorite sweaters with elbow holes. I decided it was time for the suede patches. My seamstress told me to put the sweaters on, locate where I wanted the patches and tape them to the sweater. I did so and she did a fine job of sewing the suede patches on the sweaters. When I picked them up, she warned me she did not do the damage to the patches but I did. You should not use duct tape crisscrossed over the patches, it pulls the little fuzzes off the suede and leaves a very visible marking on your new elbow patches. My real theory in life: you can have holes in your sweater's elbows, very seldom do you wear a sweater because your elbows are cold.
Thank you to Pepidemic for this article about elbow patches.

FOURTH OF JULY, TRADITIONS


For the past 35 years or so, the Fourth of July has been a no brainer, people visit our home.

It all started off when we lived on North 33rd Street for 27 years. Next door the Moundbuilders Country Club held a fireworks display. Family and friends would visit our home. Thus trash the next day.

Moving to a home adjoining the OSU-Newark campus did not change anything, great firework display and trash continue to find me on the next day.

The amazing thing: besides family joining in the fun, there were some very close friends, people I know and people I do not know. This year was big change for us, due to Andrew's friends ages every time I turned around there was a "kid". Cleaning the yard up today to find glow sticks, bug zappers, bug houses and a shoe proved that just because they are little does not mean they have "little" trash.
