A Teachable Moment

Obama and the Democrats got taken to the wood shed and spanked pretty hard by The Massachusetts voters, by seating a newbie Republican in "Ted Kennedy's seat". Now, I wonder if the President and his band of "merry men" will get the message and pay a little more attention to what the people want, instead of what Obama wants. It was a teachable moment.

Happy Birthday Popeye!

This day in1929- First appearance of Popeye the Sailor in E.C. Seegar's comic strip the Thimble Theatre.
According to the King Features website, "Spinach growers credited Popeye with a 33 percent increase in U.S. spinach consumption and saving the spinach industry in the 1930s!"
Although Segar's Thimble Theatre strip, first published on December 19, 1919, was in its tenth year when Popeye made his debut, the sailor quickly became the main focus of the strip.

Health Care And Obama

Well, I got a Wacom tablet for Christmas with Adobe Photoshop and I've spent the last week trying to figure out how to use it. This is my first attempt and it wasn't easy that's for sure.
I've been working on my caricatures and think I'm getting closer but, I think I've got to exaggerate more.

Happy New Year!!!

Gotta love the old style of Art Nouveau, which is French for new art, but you already knew that. I "borrowed" this from Tom Sito's blog and hope he doesn't mind.
A bit of trivia: When was New Years changed to Jan. 1?
Answer: In 153 B.C it was changed for military reasons.
I hope everyone who reads this has a wonderful and happy new year.
