What’s up with Growing Up?

My grandmother was born in central Minnesota and when the flu epidemics hit in the 1900’s, both of her parents died. My grandmother and her brothers and sisters were then put into an orphanage because there weren’t any other family members to take the children. When people would come to see my grandmother for possible adoption, my grandmother would either bite them or she would run away.When Olaf came to the orphanage, my grandmother liked him and said, “Wouldn’t you like to take a nice... continue reading

Image Adoption

After he grumpily posed on my finger I put him on a tree branch to wait for his mum to collect him.Am I the only one who thinks he's full of the 'aaaah' factor?... continue reading

For USA Copyright Holders-Orphan Works Bill

Orphan Works Bill...Call your Senators and Congress person to ask them to vote no on both the House ofRepresentatives bill and the Senate bill. Both bills are way too broad and seriously limit an artist's right to protect their own work.
