Ye have sown much, and bring in little; ye eat, but ye have not enough; ye drink, but ye are not filled with drink; ye clothe you, but there is none warm; and he that earneth wages earneth wages [to put it] into a bag with holes.4
I've been told of foods grown by modern agricultural practices that are lacking nutrients. Whether it's true of not, I can't say at this time, but it reminds me of this verse.
I see women revealing more of themselves than I think they should; areas I consider for private viewing by her husband only. It makes me wonder if they would also reveal private activities?
Lately I've had a continually reoccurring thing; it's an awareness, it's not mild, and hasn't faded much. I started thinking about teaching English in a foreign country, and have noticed how slang my own speech and thoughts are. Things like -gonna- instead of going to, -ardy- instead of already.
Some business/ website tips and improvements I'm making: At my level, I recommend Wordpress over Drupal; it's easier to use, especially considering upgrades. Way, way easier there. I started using Drupal because like other sign people, I was looking for a new place to use my graphics and sales abilities. Some have started making websites for people. I've yet to do that, but thought I would learn a difficult CMS so that I would have more design options later. The promotions for it say things like: Build a site in less than an hour! After tinkering with it for a long time on my own site two years maybe, I read a reply on a forum that put it all in perspective. A poster was angry at the difficulties he was having. A techy woman replied with something to this effect: Look we're al volunteers here, you have to learn more and ditch the attitude. Drupal was made by programers for programers, all the plugins available are just conveniences for repetitive tasks. Well OK then, I "get it" now. Just to clarify, I wasn't the angry guy. Not that time anyway.
Yeah so, moving right along, I'm now kind of embarrassed of that website, but I'm working on improvements. I guess the worst part are the blocks on the left with all the utilitarian plain text links. I read somewhere that text links are better for SEO than image links, so I figured the look was acceptable. Ive also been trying to get an email address at that site, so that it's Jim@donahuesignarts.com. There's a glitch right now. At this time, I use a private email address, and other sloppy practices. Not only do I want that address, I need to get it on my cards, stop handing out cards with various email addresses and phone numbers handwritten on them.
Another new thing is starting a blog for my work. I might get together a mailing list; so I can send out notices of new postings. In my travels around this area, I get to see a few things that others don't. Vistas from tall buildings, a rickety ancient homemade ladder occupying the same space that a freight elevator does, old signs in basements, and more. I'll show my more interesting work, along with new methods and results. That blog can be seen at: Noticed
At that blog is a post about the green stepside that I showed before. I'm working on a yellow fleetside right now; it might end up being the best I've done. And that's without the experimental method I want to try in the blue ribbon at the bottom. as they say, "I'll keep you posted". Nice thing about the internet, people have to track you down in order to physically kick you in the shin for lame jokes.
