youre awesome

When a specialist that was called in to “fix things” says they’re “burned out” on doing the work you do 14 hours a day/7 days a week, you know something’s wrong. Either I’ve been a slave to the machine for far too long, or the young whipper-snapper is in over his head. And said specialist has only put in about 1-2 hours a day for the duration. Lazy is NOT in my vocabulary. But it seems to be a recurring theme with everyone who is brought in to help me. Damn puppies. Where’s my rolled up newspaper?

GAH! I need canvas!

“Art is a beggar’s profession, and paupers are always the most talented.” – Lola Gayle

I want to start another collage, yet the only canvas I have right now is tiny (REALLY tiny). Guess I need to make an order soon. Well, after the trip for my daughter’s college graduation in a few weeks and then a new project in January. Sucks that big canvas costs so much.

I’m not talented by any means, nor am I a total pauper. But damn, I can’t afford art supplies. LOL

Love, Lola

A new meaning for “Black Friday”

While everyone else is out shopping after sleeping off their turkey high, NASA has something different in mind for Black Friday.

Here’s some fun facts and information about black holes for your Black Friday. And when you’re done with facts and awesome images, go listen to Third Rock Radio…NASA’s ISS radio music feed.

In this artist’s illustration, turbulent winds of gas swirl around a black hole. Some of the gas is spiraling inward toward the black hole, but another part is blown away.

A black hole is a place in space where gravity pulls so much that even light can not get out. The gravity is so strong because matter has been squeezed into a tiny space. This can happen when a star is dying.

Because no light can get out, people can’t see black holes. They are invisible. Space telescopes with special tools can help find black holes. The special tools can see how stars that are very close to black holes act differently than other stars.

How Big Are Black Holes?

Black holes can be big or small. Scientists think the smallest black holes are as small as just one atom. These black holes are very tiny but have the mass of a large mountain. Mass is the amount of matter, or “stuff,” in an object.
