Tabletop Water Fountains

I call my fountains Water Art

It all started during a trip to Sedona, AZ, I picked up several rocks that were common to the area -- deep rust/red and flat on top and bottom. 

I stacked a few and quickly saw in my mind's eye water running down the stacked stones and for the last 10 years I've been building them. 

 

Each fountain is designed to be played with - the main structure is cemented together; but, there is always a few ways to adjust the flow, look and

sound of the fountain.  And when you go some place special, pick up a small rock and add it to your fountain.

 

The sizes range from 10" - 16" in diameter and 8"-15" tall.  Each piece averages 15 hours to construct and is a unique piece of functional art.  I'm

currently building 5 new ones.  Please come back soon to see more!

 

These have to be seen to truly see their individual beauty!

 

Prices range from $120 to $160.  (My fountains have sold in art galleries for $175 to $350.)

Light Art

One day I opened a box of white Xmas lights and they came out of the box as they appear in the Orb below.  I was holding the center looking at the

bright white lights that were on either end of my hand and I thought, "There's art here.  I don't know where it is; but it's here."   I thought of wrapping

a multi-color strand around the center and the Orb you see was created. 

Since then, well, you can figure it out... You can see a few other designs at more Light Art

Nurtisystem Food

 

136 Nutrisystem’s “Food” Products.  Some are expired. 

Sold, but the story is a ton of fun - read it if you're in the mood for a laugh!

For Sale: a total of 136 Nutrisystem’s “food” products.   The expiration dates range from October 2007, January 2008 to June 2008.

My rotund former roommate bought this to help herself lose weight… And she did eat some of it… along with potato chips and ice cream.  When it became clear she wasn’t really going to do the Nutrisystem diet, we boxed it up and put it in the garage as earthquake/emergency food. 

Well fast forward a couple of years, she moves and leaves all that yummy Nutrisystem food.  And now it’s time for me to move and I don’t want it.   

Who would want expired Nutrisystem food, even if it’s a good deal? You may ask. 

I can think of at least three groups of people who would want this: 

  • People successfully living the Nutrisystem diet or people wanting to successfully live the Nutrisystem diet.
  • Earthquake, Tornado, Tsunami, Hurricane, Snowed In, Flood, Locust or Other Pestilence Emergency Food.
  • Veterans wanting to relive the MRE (Meals Ready to Eat) experience.

But, some of it is expired.  You say - with a bit of a whiny tone. 

Look, if you’re familiar with Nutrisystem “food” you know this stuff is packaged to survive a nuclear attack.  I can’t imagine anything in this stuff would/could go bad before your grandchildren finish college… I tried a bag of Soy Cheddar Chips and I didn’t taste anything that I thought would go bad before the Pyramids were dust…
