here's just a tiny smattering of the photography that i do for those that wish to sell--or document--their jewelry.  in this case, this album contains only those photos of an orthodox cross and a medal of the virgin mary.  i go to people's businesses or houses, set up to shoot, then use many itsms as props.  i'm damned good at this.  all of it is macro photography.  to do, you need to set up your lighting perfectly.  i enjoy doing it, i mean, macro.  i also do nature studies in macro.  it isn't too easy to get that one perfect shot of a bee on a flower--they move so fast while you might knock down your tripod in just trying to get that picture!

this should scare your panties off!  how our economy's demise could walk us straight into being overtaken by russia, or by china.  don't you know that china has licked its chops for a hundred years on stomping down america and then overtaking us?  former realtor here (30 years on it).  LISTEN TO THIS.

7.6.2014: we have 4 of these folding bikes for sale. a red one, shown in the clip, is out of the box and the other 3 are in the box. all are brand new.

these bikes are not lightweight because they were built for heavyset people, a/k/a the obese, in fact, for riders weighing in at up to 235 lbs. so each box weighs 30 lbs.

each of these bikes--2 red and 2 bright turquoise blue--has its own zippered bag for storing it in a storage locker/garage in off-season times, so you won't get dust on it. they are going to be placed onto chicago's craigslist at $185 each.

you can call chris at 708.506.8772 any day (other than bloody mondays) between 10 a.m. - 7 p.m. to buy one or more of them.

dolphins...  i watched them cavort and play in the water one time, gee, 1973, i recall, off of our ferry as we left victoria, canada, to return to the state of washington.  also, i think they ate jellyfish, for there were SO MANY of them, and they were enormous.  dolphin love to swim along ships.  it is like they feel an affinity to humans.  PRETTY PICTURE!

7.5.2014:  listen up.  you will be scared.  it's important.  don't listen when tired; be alert.  i was in real estate for 30 years.  i should know about money!  we have made china wealthy.  but they are angry with us.  would russia ally with china?  what then?  but this clip is auditory only.  if you care that the united states will not walk itself into the gutter, listen.  and be wary.  put americans back to work.  demand that your reps in congress pass a measure for a public works project.  the problems we need to pay attention to are right here, in our own back yard.  we NEED to get wealthy again.  listen.  you will see what i mean.

oh for heavens sake!  when will these darned "psychologists" tell us exactly WHAT they are having a problem with?  exactly WHAT we, as a nation, are having such a PROBLEM understanding?  i have listened to them now for over one half of the clip's length, and none of them have stated WHAT IT IS THEY WANT TO SAY TO US!

Employment
  • Dallas Enterprises, Inc. Katydid Writer's Guild
    (RET) CEO/Pres/in process of retiring to concentrate on writing (2014: RETIRED! WRITING!), 1986 - 2014
    thanks to a vicious computer virus that had me thinking up workarounds every damned day from 2006 - 2012, i did not do any creative writing publicly, at either Catagorian.org (preferred to): stumbleupon.com and/or on yahoo's answers community as Louiegirl_Chicago. now i use a Mac! since my career now is getting my body cured (yes, as of 5-2014, i am finally out of pain, and we will see if the surgery lasts or must be repeated), so, therefore, i can eliminate the accumulated mess of possessions from a single family house and meanwhile, jump over to my beloved Mac and go to write and post pictures about what i write at Categorian.org. i'll figure out how to post my link to both, but i am using and learning more about using, trance-writer on Categorian.com and stumbleupon.com. everything at both is not current. my body was too sick and the box was too sick and the new one ordered from dell, fancy, big, was a lemon too. ugh! being on a Mac is entirely different and i am still (6.1.2014) learning it. but now i am retired and i feel so liberated! more to come.

Story
Tagline
(forgive my grammar: i save all the work for when i publish)... i am searching for you. i was born in august 1952, so that means that you are approximately 58 years old as of 5-2011. maybe you attended elementary or high school with me. i went to two grammar schools and two different high schools, all in chicago. i had my son in 1970. i'm a grandmother to two natural sons and to his two adopted sons. my brothers were all younger than i: mark, david, and scotty. you may have known me from rogers park, north center, bucktown, (which, no bragging, i and three other women "made") or edgewater, or perhaps hyde park-kenwood. look at my name history. at this point, i am karen dallas hartig wishing to drop ex husbando's last name of hartig. please be sure to let me know where we were when we met. hasta!
Introduction
please email me if you went to school with me.  i worry about classmates at Central YMCA HS: did you die doing all those drugs? one of my classmates there was a young man, a brunette.  he made the cover of Time Magazine when he stood atop a statue at grant park in 1968.  that was when the now "chicago hilton inn and towers" hosted the 1968 democratic convention.  all the yippies and SDS were in the park across the street.  luckily, i was at Old Town, where i almost got beaten up by a private dic, but you, at grant park, might have been brutally beaten by the chicago police department in the riot that ensued.  wow, what an interesting time it was to be young and inquisitive!  i learned sooooo much!  
Bragging rights
as a Realtor, MADE bucktown what it is now, one of the most exclusive communities on the north side. two consecutive years as Director of Childrens' Activities for the annual juried Bucktown Arts Fest in August, same two years the community's Treasurer, two consecutive years as Chicago Association of Realtors (f/k/a North Side Real Estate Board) as VP Computer Committee, and many more experiences and very advanced real estate training/certificates.
