Art Fair

Went over to the Crosby Gardens Art Show today. Had a good time. Weather was fantastic, People seem to like to rag on Toledo as an ugly city, but this place is gorgeous. Pictures at left of the little pond – very peaceful, even with thousands of people wandering around.


I'm not 100% sure that everything I saw was art, but who am I to judge. The time these artists put into their craft is amazing. Our good friend Larry Golba didn't have a booth this year, or if he did, we didn't see it. He does lots of neat water color paintings. There seemed to be a large number of photographers this year. Also quite a few jewelry makers, since my entire jewelry collection includes 1 ring and a 10 year old watch where I can't change the minutes on – I don't think I am their target market.


I really like the wooden toys. I guess it's the Santa in me. The trains were really neat and some old roadsters would look very nice on the mantel.

We have thunderstorms; the local news is spending the first 10 minutes telling us it is raining. They even had a reporter standing in the rain saying she could feel the raindrops. And this is news????? The worst is when they show radar the splits the storm and tells us from how high the rain is falling.

News is no more, the weather has become entertainment, if there's video – it's a major story, if there is a 911 call – it's there. And then there is the investigative reporting, and massive sensationalizing of a story such as "Is Your Drinking Water Safe?" which the net-net is the opinion of somebody.

I am also noticing an increase in the "Breaking News Story" that does nothing more than spread 'unconfirmed rumors'. And when there is a real emergency, will anyone believe it. Perhaps our super intelligent marketers that say they report the news we demand, will read about the boy who cried wolf.
