I think it would be nice to leave her name up there. Good idea.

sad news

For those of us who have been around here long enough to remember when we were on line almost every night with a live chat, you will remember Sarah Clark, aka Swartz (also a moderator here). I found out last night that Sarah has died. She was a calligrapher, former employee of Hallmark and sign pain...

Very true Mike. But that recent tornado blew very close to the Butlers. I hope they are alright and assume that they are or we would have heard.
Makes all our rain look pretty good.

Big Wind in Indiana

Hey all you folks in the heartland - R U still in one piece? Sounds like Mother Nature sent a tornado through your middle. I hope you didn't sustain any damage. The pictures we're seeing of Nappanee look like parts were leveled.

I'm using RealPlayer and have a DSL. There sometimes is a bit of chop, but not much. Danny's undoubtedly right about down loading to iPod first. I am downloading to my computer first. It's all magic anyway.

Stone Cutting movie

If you haven't discovered this yet, I think you'll like it.

Once I started looking at the folkstream movies I just had to limit myself or I wouldn't get anything else done. You are forewarned.

Enjoy!

Some I've seen recently were an Old English Script. If you decide on this one, PLEASE, use Caps and lower case. NOT ALL CAPS. I recently saw some very nice hand lettering in Oaxaca, both on vehicles and on very rough walls. Nice to see handlettering again; and well done.

Hey Mike, could you join a gym and let them own and do the maintenance on the equipment? That's what I've been doing for a few years now. That way you have access to not only some arobic device like a treadmill but weights or machines to help the upper body too. BTW the thing I do to pass the time o...

It looks like there are two methods being discussed here. One is cutting the film with a plotter. That could then be adhered to the screen.

I've used Perfect Plank for years and would recommend them. I know that within the past few years they could no longer get redwood. Cedar was it. I've always been happy with them.

Pack rats

This sounds familiar. I just last weekend took stacks of old Signs of the Times to a small letterhead meet so they could find new homes. I couldn't stand to look through them because I knew if I did, they would come back home with me. A few did. I think it's genetic. My parents were pack rats. And I...

I googled Pullman car lettering and found this book:
Pullman Paint and Lettering Notebook, ISBN 0890242917. It might be for model train buffs, but I think those people are pretty accurate. Hope it helps.

On the cover is his name and the Y in a thick and thin face is backwards. It just jumped at me and has ...
