Orphan Works Act
Subject: [worldwidewomenartists] orphan works bill

this has been sent to me regarding this unthinkable bill please read
and sign the petition to protect our rights as artists.

Many Artists such as myself had no idea that there was legislature in
Congress right now that
will began as a well intended bill but has been manipulated by image
companies and others so that
artists will lose implied copyright and will be forced to register at
a cost each painting into MULTIPLE registries
or their work will be considered public domain. All the money we
have spent on copyrighting our work over the
years will be useless.

This will severely impede our ability to sell paintings online as we
will have to wait to be officially registered before
publishing a work. ( Right now the law protects our work.)

This is being pushed through super fast and we have less than 48
hours to be heard! PLEASE
follow the link below and if you agree PLEASE SIGN THE PETITION!

Pretty quiet

My friend flew back to Michigan today and it is really quiet here tonight.
We are to get some more rain tomorrow and I am happy for that. My flowers have almost tripled in size since the rain last week. The grass is green and growing.

Catching up on rain

Another year younger and thoughts far away. I believe that is what you should do and I did.

Catching up on our rain here in NENC. My plants are loving ever moment of it. My kiss me over the garden gate are really growing and really multiplied this year I can hardly wait to photograph them and share.
The daffodils are almost gone but some I planted late will kick in by next week.
Enjoying my visit with my childhood friend and we had a wonderful time this week, time flew by and I imagine this week will as well. Will be sorry to see her go.

I know I am always complaining about no rain but why do we have to have severe storms coming in when I have a 150 mile round trip to the airport to pick up my friend that is flying in from Michigan tomorrow night.. Saturday night traffic, every loony on earth will be out driving like there is no tomorrow!!
Maybe it will speed up and be gone before 7 PM and the trip will go OK.
I once again have house-maids knees. But that breakfast nook looks great.. New table cloth, floor spotless and me sore from trying to squeeze through a one foot opening to get under the table and the benches, all built in.. My sister was laughing pretty hard Thursday evening when I described my ordeal of scrubbing the floor. No photos on this one.

My friend's poetry

Rain and sun makes for interesting weather

I remember Grandma always saying, rain and sun shining would mean bad storms. Well I do believe it is time to batten down the hatches. We've been receiving some of the rain and my flowers are really coming along in happy fashion!
My Azalea bush will bloom for my birthday, so I know everything is on time this year. I know the blooms won't be as full and beautiful as last year, due to the beetles that attacked last year.
I am anxiously awaiting Saturday evening, my friend I grew up with will arrive for a long over due two week visit. All I can say is, "Northeast North Carolina" will never be the same! News must travel fast, because so far I have received phone calls from my oldest brother, my friends, boyfriend and if I see my sons phone number come up, I am NOT answering the phone. I already received a lecture on being out at my age after dark. I do believe I gave a similar lecture 30 some years ago..
Trixie is on her way to New Jersey. I hope she arrives safe and sound!

My birthday wish is:*************************!!
