Please Please Please… Re Share this and spread the word to your circles.... +'s are verycool but re-shares are much better!

Today is the Day!

I am so pleased because today marks the launching the "Photographers for Good" website. What is it? Well, let me tell you a little about it. and why it came into being. It is the brainchild of the dynamic duo +Barry Blanchard and +Monique Yates. It is targeted to help our dear friend +Lee Daniels.

Now many of you know Lee from her curation of +CATURDAY! and +Women Wednesday or from the many…many lovely comments she sprinkles on others work all across G+. But for those of you who don't, she is a teacher of our children, writer, and passionate photographer that not only "chases magic" but often captures it in stunning art for the rest of us to look at in awe.

Earlier this month Lee was diagnosed with small cell lung cancer. LIke many of our friends who are freelance artists… she doesn't have health insurance, which is not a good situation in todays healthcare reality. So Barry and Monique have resolved to not only send positive thoughts to Lee but to also take positive steps to help her.

The "Photographers for Good " site is a place that other photographers and artists have uploaded images to be sold as prints with all of the profits being donated to offset Lee's medical costs.. +Ivan Makarov and +SmugMug have provided the mechanisms for artists to donate their work and for others to buy it. The gallery currently contains work by +Lotus Carroll +Karen Hutton +Sumit Sen +Chris Chabot +Ivan Makarov +Vivienne Gucwa +Tamara Pruessner +Barry Blanchard +Monique Yates and myself. Over the next days you will find that the site contains offerings from +Alan Shapiro and the work of others…. maybe like yourself. If you have 1 (one) shot that is your best and you would like to donate it to this cause… here is the link: http://goo.gl/nIKI2 . If you would like to see the gallery and purchase specially priced art from well known artists then go here : http://goo.gl/cED9u

Lee is a strong woman and a good friend. With our help she will beat this thing and provide us with the beauty of her presence in our art world or years to come.

Again Please Please Please re-share this post with others… copy the links and post them on FB, Tweet them like crazy… Donate a shot… buy some art… lets get this moving!

Sales girl (Deliliah) very nice, but she has no backup for her sales. Even though she sales glasses to be ready in about an hour the store, managers, makers and etc. do not follow through. Friday, June 21,2013. We were told to return in an hour, did and was told it would be another hour. Thirty minutes later we were called and told that another whole hour was needed. We returned after that time passed and waited 30 more minutes inside store only to be told that we could not get them until Sunday. Sunday we heard nothing, we called and was told not ready. Called Monday night after no word and told that they need to be inspected for a second time before they are ready and that they will call us. Tuesday and waiting......and looking for a new place for future eye glass purchases. Will not go back to Lens Crafters, do not know if the glasses are any good or not as I have yet to get them, but do know that the service is POOR to None and their word means even LESS.

Low cost place to get tools for projects and handy location. The problem comes if you just want to browse (spend time looking around the store) and even worse if you need to think and/or plan your purchases while there. If you don't want your mind and your ears blown plan ahead and wear ear protection to the store. The sound system, radio, etc. is turned all the way up and blares non stop till all you can think about is fleeing for your life. Don't even think that you will be able to remember what you came for are make any decisions about what you might need while your there. If you have no choice and have to be there long enough to make a purchase, forget any help or relief from the staff. Yep, they have been there too long! The ear-drums are ruined and the brain cells fried, they will look at you with blank stares and gaping mouths and yell over the radio.......WHAT NOISE? Also forget the idea that you can escape by going to the competition, Northern Tool for any common sense. I tried it and the noise blasted me back through the front door with almost as much force and irritation as Harbor Freights.

I like the store, its neat to look around while waiting for a table. I like the fireplace and the cosy atmosphere with lamps on the tables. Dislike the noise. Too Loud. Lots of dishes breaking and sounds like your in a tin cracker box.

Love most of the food, they have good drinks also. As with lots of others it is much to loud sometimes.

Food was bland, even the refried beans were bad. How can a Mexican place serve bad beans? Nothing special about the chips & hot sauce, get better from bag & jar at home.
