Hey, Mitch McConnell. It's against my moral and ethical standards to provide lifetime health care benefits to Congress members who try to impose their own religious voodoo on the constituency they are elected to represent. And I am your employer.

And all of you anti-birth control Christian fundamentalists and Catholics out there who have reached 40 or beyond and only had two or three kids—don't try to tell us you didn't use birth control. If you've got nine kids by 50 you can talk, although you probably shouldn't.

Our third consecutive week of great press from the New Times.
The Phantom Project has, however temporarily, filled a gaping, empty space in the heart of San Luis Obispo. It’s a place that, like 672 Higuera ...

This does not surprise me. Furthermore, any perceived benefits from ingesting pollen as a nutritional supplement are of the placebo variety, since pollen is encapsulated, and passes through the digestive tract unchanged and undigested.

On a closely related note, the best preventive for anaphylaxis from bee stings is to get stung several times a year starting BEFORE you have a reaction. Anaphylactic allergies to bees are almost entirely caused by exposure to inhaled bee protein without accompanying stings. The risk of anaphylaxis in the general population is 1/10,000, but in the population of people who are exposed to bees regularly (breathing traces of bee protein) but not getting stung, the risk spikes up to 1/60. Beekeepers who get stung don't generally get anaphylaxis but their non-beekeeping (unstung) relatives do. I don't know if stings would protect from pollen induced anaphylaxis but I suspect so, since there is definitely going to be bee protein in any pollen samples from a bee hive.
CATCH THE BUZZ. Bee pollen supplements can cause anaphylactic reactions. Paper published in the Canadian Medical Association Journal. Although many people take bee pollen as a health supplement, it ca...

Story
Introduction
Here are some keywords that should give you some ideas about me: beekeeper, artist, sculptor, life drawing, writer, foundry, Ekhart Tolle, Terence McKenna, Frank Zappa, Joseph Campbell.

I spent 10 years in the metal trades in Seattle, and 13 years as a technical writer in the Silicon Valley prior to making the leap to the full time pursuit of art.
Throughout that time I was raising 3 kids and hanging around the margins of the art world, knowing all the while that art was where I belonged. In 2001 I began working with my wife on development of an artists’ retreat in San Luis Obispo county that we call Windhook. That work is ongoing, and consumes most of the time that I am not in the studio.
In 2002, I left technical writing and the world of salaries and trading-life-for-money to entirely devote my time to the pursuit of my artistic vision and the Windhook project. At times since then, my efforts have been consumed by Windhook planning and construction tasks, and at times I have focused more exclusively on sculpture.
