Very useful information...

I've used this website (opensecrets) several times and it is quite informative. It can be very telling as to why certain legislators vote the way they do. It's worth a look.

Interesting news from today...(Abortion debate)

I don't know how strong this argument really is. But I'd say anything which aims at reducing the numbers of "unwanted pregnancies," is a step in the right direction.

Monday, November 23, 2009 - Utah GOP opposes citizens ethics initiative - Utah GOP opposes citizens ethics initiative

I'm going to try and start a new trend for myself; posting the most interesting news article I find each day. I read a lot of news: National news like CNN or international like the UK News, papers from Fairbanks, Anchorage, and Juneau Alaska, one paper from MT, one from ID, and a few from Utah, including KSL. Even the NY Times every once in a while. Sometimes I may post more than one. Anyway, I hope to post the ones that maybe you missed.

The above link will take you to an article about the Utah GOP. I don't think ANY of our ELECTED leaders ought to be against a check and balance by the people who elected them. And if they are opposed, it probably means they're doing things they hope never come to light.

Arts and crafts for sale!

This one is knotty white pine w/mahogany stain. (Remember, I can stain them to your liking. Any color.)
This is a shadow box. They can be spruced up to fanciness if you'd like. This one is fairly plain. $16.00
This picture frame is made from knotty alder, to which I applied a mahogany stain. Alder will stain almost any shade you'd like, from it's natural light color to almost black. I have lots of it. On this one, I chose to use the molded side for nice framing lines, but I can use plain, flat wood, just the same. I also used a Roman-ogee router bit to trim a nice edge around it. $21.00.
This is a good example of a rustic barn wood picture frame. It is 8X10 in size. I added the rope to this one for my grandpa, the cowboy, but I thought it looked very nice without the rope. $25.00.
A nice frame from barn wood. A lot like the previous one from barn wood, just smaller-dimensions of the wood. It's also an 8X10. $20.00.
