Let it Snow, Let it Snow. NO Please dont.

Well,  the reports are snow and a lot of it for our area.  Earlier today, my wife and VP of Operations here at the shop: Dena, made a preventative strike at the forecasted snow by heading out to Home Depot and buying up some rock salt for our ritual "shovel your walk and driveway before you are able to go anywhere" dance.  This dance is well known amongst most neighborhoods.  It usually involves a lot of back breaking, sweating and freezing of the body parts followed by gasps of air and runny noses.  And when the fun is all over...you can bet you'll be too tired to go to work.   Good thing I can do some designing from home, so the day may not be wasted.  But I hope it doesnt come down much.  My van has a problem backing up out of the driveway on snowy days.  Cross your fingers... there is a lot to do at the shop as we are fast approaching major deadlines with our Black light mini golf course construction for Dresden Germany.  Pictures and Videos to follow!  

Oh Yeah... Dena mentioned that the local Spanish news "Telemondo" was there at Home Depot and video taped her walking down the isle with the bag of salt.  We said we had to make a point of watching that station's news, but although we forgot.  If any of you happened to watch it (the latino news that is) and you see a sexy woman walking down a Home Depot catwalk isle with rock salt, thats Dena!

Cristiano Ronaldo's Sculpture Gone Wrong

Cristiano Ronaldo is represented by a bronze bust of his "likeness", and the internets on FIRE! World famous athlete with all the charm and good looks one could ask for..... clearly missed in this bronze replica.   So how in the world does this happen?   When creating a figurative life portrait sculpture, one collects imagery from all angles to replicate in form.  This piece was sculpted in clay first to then cast in bronze.  Clay is the most forgiving and easily adjusted material known to sculptors!  So who approved this facial expression as a correct representation of Cristiano Ronaldo?  Or did the artist not reveal any progress photos as the sculpture came into form?  Was he granted the job just to reveal this final with any updates in between?  The internet has been buzzing with endless memes criticizing the bust , as Cristiano has to grit and bear this permanent representation of himself.  And how did the artist respond to the outrage ?  He com
