Veterans, Disabled Veterans War and More War

Are The Veterans Invisible?




Several days ago I saw a political pundit on H.B.O. talk about possible war in Iran.   When she mentioned taking military action, she did so with such non nonchalance that I was stunned into silence.   She talked about war as if she were talking about a new app for her Iphone, only with far less enthusiasm.

However, when it comes to equipping troops in war and providing mental health care, medical health care,  housing and adjustment to civilian life after combat, suddenly "We The People," who are already struggling to find jobs and keep our homes are the only ones who are expected to  provide for them.  

We do, but we can only do so much.

I want to do what I can.     I have several works of art that deal directly with VET's and I am selling them with the direct intent of giving a sizable percent of the proceeds to Disabled American Vets.   

If this is successful, I will do more.   I am just wanted to do something for the Vets.

I lost my father as a direct result of a Nation that was "War Hungry."  I have been grieving for 54 years his loss.   I do not want another person to know what I have felt and still feel.

Here are the pieces I have available.  

Thank you so much for reading this, and please distribute.

When Boring Becomes Electric

The New Mac Pro and the Luxury Stand




When a base computer costs $ 5,999.00 and a monitor $ 5,999, we are looking at stratospheric pricing.In the highest echelons of machines, this could be the norm.However, there is no world where a stand for a monitor costing $ 999.00 is.

The long awaited and much anticipated new Mac Professional made a memorable debut.It was for an outrageously expensive monitor stand, and an appearance that looked inspired by a cheese grater that drew the most attention. Incidentally, the pricing also made something of a splash.


Apple has been heralded for their design aesthetic for years.Yet, there was no way to escape the fact this computer resembled a common kitchen device. Then again, the last Mac Pro looked like a sleek trash can, or a decapitate “droid” from Star Wars.


It is difficult for me to say if the new mac is worth its base price, or if its full featured one that costs as much as a car is either.I have heard the figure $ 35,000 rolled around for one with…
