Russians DO have a thing about bears… especially my Nicky, so this photmontage is a surprise for him! I know I’ll hear a “growl” or two of delight…

Russians have a thing about bears… well, here’s a video on the subject.

Been Busy With My Other Site…

Isn’t this a hoot? I stumbled upon this image and I just had to purloin it. If you want to abscond with any of mine… go ahead! It’s the best praise that you can give my work… so, there!

Recently, most of my online effort has gone to my other site, Art and Faith.  Just as I had done with this site, I edited the graphics and images to have a consistent style throughout the site. I finished it today, why don’t you have a look? But first, here are some images from the site… I don’t believe that they need any commentary…

Be good, all of you! Palm Sunday is tomorrow, then, Holy Week… of course, it all ends in Easter… the Feast of Feasts, the highpoint of the Christian year. It’s why we’re Christians after all:

Christ is risen from the dead,

Trampling on death by death,

And upon those in the tombs, bestowing life!

What more need be said? Ciao, guys.
