Plan to merge Education, Labor departments is just more 'hot air' from Trump administration

If I had the money, I would invest in property to run water and electric hook ups all through out the place. I have been seeing a lot of these types of blogs.
It is a great idea for many reasons, consider the amount of money PWDs throw away on just renting. Also the fact that we live in one place for most of our lives due to affordability. Would buying tiny houses also save tax payers money, if programs were setup to buy, rather then live 40-60 year in subsidized housing?
I am sure people still have to rent the land to park just as a trailer park. The tiny option may be the way for PWDs to be included in the latest housing trend. I think it would cool to start a Gimp commune.

This is the end of the the era, because this means schools will stop teaching photography using film and all of the good stuff that comes with this medium.
Although, I too do more digital stuff now, it will never replace the feel that comes with older mediums. In the digital age of art the possibilities seems unless, but I do feel a disconnect from my work. When I paint, or draw I become part of the piece. The canvas and my body the absorb the some colors, my DNA is left on the canvas. If not from scraping my knuckles, it's my sweat and drooling. Really this is how they will identify a Keplinger, not from a signature, but from DNA.
Maybe to me digital art is as air sex, it's fun and safe, but does it have soulful connections?

Words count, whatever you put on social media represents you. You cannot undo your thoughts by pushing delete or calling it a bad joke. Once again Present Trump has a opportunity to condemn hatred in our country, but he plays the victim card.
I am all about freedom of speech, but you also of to be prepare for the consequences for this freedom when you act like a bully, or a racist.

I say Bravo to the two men that had to experience this miss justice at a Philadelphia Starbucks. They could of chose a difference path and not used this as an education opportunity, but is it really enough?
I have been in this situation myself being a person with a disability and it is an endless battle to change how people perceive different minorities. A few hours of training might change the attitude of one, or two people, but the really goal is to creative new believes and values that everyone is equal.
how can this be accomplished when President Trump does not embrace the diversity of our country? At the end of day this seem to be a good PR move by Starbucks, but how people will remember the names Donte Robinson and Rashon Nelson, who want to create change.

Misstress Apple has been miss behaving for a while and I was getting no where with Apple support. I cannot press command + R to reboot in recovery mode. So I just erase and reinstall my hard drive, it was for the best anyway.
The thing is when you reinstall your software things are not the some. For example, in Photoshop you have to download the old brushes. Thank God for Youtube college, you can find out about everything on there. At the same time, I do like the new organization of the brushes in Photoshop. This is way I call my computer Misstress, the line is very fine between pleasure and pain.

This year Richard his family invited Dena and I to the Cerebral Palsy Foundation's Design For Disability 2018. This is the perfect example of how I say art is about solving problems. Although, I do not understand one thing about fashion, they are still meeting my interpretation of being an artist. When you have been a chosen one to be a PWD clothes just do not fit , or function ass you need them too.
As part of this project, the designers get to work with a mentor and one of them was Anna Sui! Here she is as she talks about seaming, pleading, and charring when it comes to designing clothes for people with disabilities that allow for more movement. The Cerebral Palsy Foundation's #designfordisability gala fashion show is tomorrow!! We can't wait to show you what the designers from Fashion Institute of Technology, Pratt Institute and Parsons School of Design have in store for you!
For more on the event: http://yourcpf.org/gala/
For me the real event was the after party, since Tom could introduce to
@micahdfowler and @Zachanner, I know some how this should be the next Marvel. Come on, what the hell does Xavier have that we do not? This was like a meeting of the CP families as in the God Father, the next this happens we should take over the White House.
Zach and I could not believe Josh Blue was not there, the collection just was complete with out him!
So we decided to call his ass, so he could feel as part of the team.
With all the fun aside. I feel as every generation of CPers needs their voice; I feel like, I can speak for my vintage because I know what life was like for us at that time. Someone always has to put down the footer, but the same guy does not get to put the trim in.
