Wow! Here's a beautiful vintage pewter & brass limited edition chess set with a 12" x 12" genuine leather game board. Check the photos out.

Thanks! 2014 is the Chinese year of the horse. I'm working on that now. Did
you see I created a Google Hang Out for us?

I fulfilled a lifelong yearning when I visited Yosemite National Park in CA. Yosemite has spectacular vistas everywhere you look. Cathedral like walls of granite surround the Yosemite Valley. The forces of nature and time have weathered, chiseled and formed many features of the valley into well-known landmarks: El Captain, Half-Dome, Bridal-veil Falls.

I left my SLR Cameras because I wanted to travel light. I took 400 photos at Yosemite National Park with a point and shoot 4.0 Pixel Canon® PowerShot G2 Camera. I didn't use a tripod, only a steady hand and post-work editing with Adobe® Photoshop.

Thanks for the nice compliment. I've been an avid photographer for many years. As a small town daily newspaper reporter, I polished my photo skills with a SLR camera because a staff photographer wasn't always available.

The Chinese New Year is January 23, 2012. This is the year of the dragon (specifically the water dragon). A mythical and legendary creature, the dragon symbolizes good fortune and is the sign of intense power. In Eastern philosophy, the dragon supposedly brings good fortune and is a master of authority.

Introduction

Digital marketing communications (marcom) is my current profession. My career began as a daily newspaper reporter. After two years, I worked in company marketing and communication for seven years before starting my agency. Two admen from the Minneapolis Office of Batton, Barton, Durstine & Osborn (BBDO) mentored me. One is still a close friend.
