In need of logo designer


My sister works for a small biotech company that needs a logo designed based on a sketch that her boss has made.

Is there anyone out there that would be interested in such work? It is paid work, but you would be required to submit some samples before selection. PM me if interested.


Borrowed from Facebook

This made me laugh so I thought I would share.

A pig's orgasm lasts 30 minutes. (O.M.G.!!!) A cockroach will live nine days without its head before it starves to death. (Creepy. I'm still not over the pig.) The male praying mantis cannot copulate while its head is attached to its body. The female initiates sex by ripping the male's head off.(Honey, I'm home . What the...?)

The flea can jump 350 times its body length. It's like a human jumping...the length of a football field. (30 minutes. Lucky pig! Can you imagine?) The catfish has over 27,000 taste buds. (What could be so tasty on the bottom of a pond?) Some lions mate over 50 times a day. (I still can't believe that pig ...quality over quantity.)

Butterflies taste with their feet. (Something I always wanted to know.) Elephants are the only animals that cannot jump. (Okay, so that would be a good thing.) A cat's urine glows under a black light. (I wonder how much the government paid to figure that out.) An ostrich's eye is bigger than its brain. (I know some people like that.) Starfish have no brains. (I know some people like that, too.)

Polar bears are left-handed. (Talk about a southpaw.) Humans and dolphins are the only species that have sex for pleasure. (What about that pig? Do the dolphins know about the pig?)

I had a bit of inspiration last night from the "She Started It" quiz, thank you morethansirius!

This is a short two chapter story, hopefully a bit of fun. Let me know what you think.

Woohoo! Challenge Completed!

Now to finish writing the rest of the story!

Camp NaNoWriMo winding down

OMG, it looks like I am actually going to finish!

43,590 words and 43 chapters so far!

I am thinking it is going to take me the next year to clean it up though :-) It is great to be getting there and I feel motivated but 50,000 words isn't the end the story it seems.

I have 64 chapters mapped out (may be a few more because I think I will need to split some,) and by the time the clean up happens I am sure this is going to have a few more words than that. Well better over estimating than under estimating I guess.

I need to keep plugging and finish the story though so I don't leave it, I know myself well enough that it will sit forever if I don't keep at it. Procrastinator of the first order here.

Oh, I did pick up a prompt from the Bring Back the Bastard!Snape challenge. I am really looking forward to this! I am not sure if it is ok to share it, but I will look at the rules more closely and share if I can.

RIP Ryan

I just found out that a boy (I am calling him that because that is the way I remember him) I barely knew was killed this weekend in Afghanistan. I actually know his family better than I knew him, his parents are a part of the circle of friends which all used to hang-out together when we lived in N. VA.

I will always remember him as a fun person, a good friend to his peers and kind to the younger kids.

Ryan will be added to the list of people I now remember on the holidays and special occasions where we wish he was still celebrating with us.

My prayers go to his family, and friends.

I hope everyone will say a prayer, send a thought or raise a glass to Ryan and all of the other Heroes who have given their lives in service of our country.

Ryan Jeskey, I hope you find peace.


As I was writing this, Eric Idle came into the closing ceremonies singing, "Always Look on the Bright Side of Life." I found it uplifting.

Ooohhh! They Have a World Map

I have actually been to each state in our USA, 80% work though, not so much pleasure, so I tried the world map instead. This is actually kind of fun!

visited 22 states (9.77%)

Yeah!!! Airport delays!

Camp NaNoWriMo - Day 6 - 10,223 words and working on Chapter 11 so far. Woohoo!

Well, I had an absolutely wonderful time this weekend visiting my daughter and other family members who came up to see the play. Meg was the lead (Camilla Machen) in "Lunch Lady, the Tater Tots of Love" which is a surprisingly funny and sweet play based very loosely on Faust (set in a private high school. ) If you want a chuckle, google the play and you can read about it. Everyone did a great job and looked like they had fun doing it.

I almost went to the state fair...bailed, Irish festival, bailed again (wasn't feeling well.) I did go to the best German restaurant I have been to in a while. Schmidts, which is in downtown Columbus. Really fantastic Saurbratten.

My daughter went back to WV to work, she works at her college, dropping me off at the airport a while ago. I took this opportunity to write for a while.

I am now sitting at the terminal waiting for my flight to arrive. It looked for a while like I was going to be stuck here another night, but it looks only to be delayed an hour. I really hope the last leg is delayed too, or I am sprinting to the next gate! We shall see...

Monday, Monday....
Wow it has been a day, got another 2 chapters done and am now in Columbus to see my daughter's play this weekend. She has been up here all summer doing summer stock. Really looking forward to seeing how all the hard work paid off.

Have a great evening folks!

Woohoo a Gold Medal Beginning!

Day 1 - 7,403 words / 7 chapters.


I need to do some clean up now...

I got a very nice motivational email from Camp NaNoWriMo too. Made my day.
