STOP BULL FIGHTING Animal Abuse

Featured

BULL FIGHTING – What happens before a corrida? The bull has wet newspapers stuffed into his ears; vaseline is rubbed into his eyes to blur his vision; cotton is stuffed up his nostrils to cut off his respiration and a needle is stuck into his genitals. Also, a strong caustic solution is rubbed onto his legs which throws him off balance. This also keeps him from lying down on the ground. He is kept in a dark box for a couple of days, before he faces the ring: the purpose of this is to disorientate him. When he is let out of the box, he runs desperately towards the light at the end of the tunnel. He thinks that at last his suffering is over and he is being set free

Reuse Recycled Repurposed Refurnished Reclaimed Wood Timber

You have probably heard the following terms….
Reclaimed
Repurposed
Reused
Recycled
Refurbished

What does it mean when talking about materials?

An Introduction to Reclaimed Wood

Reclaimed wood is a great building material.
High quality reclaimed wood building materials and products can bring you years of service in residential, commercial and municipal construction. The ecological benefit is a windfall benefit that makes reclaimed wood lumber even more appealing.
Read on to find out more about what exactly reclaimed wood is, and why to use it in the first place.

What is Reclaimed Wood?

As the name implies, reclaimed wood is wood material that has been reclaimed from its current use, then cut and used for a new purpose.
Usually it is rescued from a old house being demolished as the wood in pictures, this wood is mill cut pine dates to 1890s, will be used in metal benches for wood seats or table tops. Reclaimed wood can be very old and referred to as “antique wood”.
Reclaimed building materials are highly sought after by Architects and fine builders worldwide for its superior qualities.
Today, reclaimed wood is considered to be a green building material because of its arguably better ecological properties.
The term “reclaimed wood” has emerged as the primary term to identify recovered wood raw materials re manufactured into useful recycled building materials.
So it applies to both the raw material and the finished product depending on context.

Reclaimed Wood vs Recycled Lumber

Reclaimed wood is distinguished from recycled wood or reused wood in that it is usually re manufactured in some manner for reuse in a new form. It is transformed from one incarnation to the next.
Nevertheless the term “recycled lumber” is commonly used to mean the same thing, lumber that has already seen use being reincarnated into a new use.
Recycled lumber can also mean lumber that is reclaimed or recovered, cleaned up and reused as is. There is some confusion between the terms for these reasons.
One way to think of reclaimed wood is to think in terms of reclaimed wood as the raw material that is cut to make lumber, flooring, siding and paneling that is then used to make doors, furniture cabinets and so on.
The finished product is then “recycled lumber from reclaimed wood” “reclaimed wood lumber” or “recycled lumber”.
The terminology isn’t as important as the material so don’t worry about it. Reclaimed wood can mean both the source material and the finished product.

Where Does Reclaimed Wood Come From?

This wood came from this homestead that was being demolished

Frida Kahlo Bio Artist

Featured

Tags

, , , , , , , , ,

Considered one of the Mexico’s greatest artist, Frida Kahlo was born on July 6, 1907 in Coyocoan, Mexico City, Mexico. She grew up in the family’s home where was later referred as the Blue House or Casa Azul. He father is a German descendant and photographer. He immigrated to Mexico where he met and married her mother Matilde. Her mother is half Amerindian and half Spanish. Frida Kahlo has two older sisters and one younger sister.

Frida Kahlo has poor health in her childhood. She contracted polio at age of 6 and had to be bedridden for nine months. This disease caused her right leg and food grow much thinner than her left one. She limped after she recovered from the polio. She has been wearing long skirts to cover that for the rest of her life. Her father encouraged her to do lots of sports to help her recover. She played soccer, went swimming, and even did wrestle, which is very unusual at that time for a girl. She has kept a very close relationship with her father for her whole life.

Frida Kahlo attended the renowned National Preparatory School in Mexico city in year of 1922. There are only thirty-five female students enrolled in that school and she soon became famous for her outspokenness and bravery. At this school she first met the famous Mexican muralist Diego Rivera for the first time. Rivera at that time was working on a mural called The Creation on the school campus. Frida often watched it and she told a friend she will marry him someday.

At the same year, Kahlo joined a gang of students which shared the similar political and intellectual views. She fell in love with the leader Alejandro Gomez Arias. On a September afternoon when she traveled with Gomez Arias on a bus the tragic accident happened. The bus collided with a streetcar and Frida Kahlo was seriously injured. A steel handrail impaled her through the hip. Her spine and pelvis are fractured and this accident left her in a great deal of pain, both physically and physiologically.

She was injured so badly and had to stay in the Red Cross Hospital in Mexico City for several weeks. After that she returned home for further recovery. She had to wear full body cast for three months. To kill the time and alleviate the pain, she started painting and finished her first first self-portrait the following year. Frida Kahlo once said, “I paint myself because I am often alone and I am the subject I know best”. Her parents encouraged her to paint and made a special easel made for her so she could paint in bed. They also gave her brushes and boxes of paints.

Frida Kahlo reconnected with Rivera in 1928. She asked him to evaluate her work and he encouraged her. The two soon started the romantic relationship. Despite her mother’s objection, Frida and Diego Rivera got married in the next year. During their earlier years as a married couple, Frida had to move a lot based on Diego’s work. In 1930, they lived in San Francisco, Calfonia. Then they moved to New York City for Rivera’s artwork show at Museum of Modern Art. They later moved to Detroit while Diego Rivera worked for Detroit Institute of Arts.

In 1932, Kahlo added more realistic and surrealistic components in her painting style. In the painting titledHenry Ford Hospital(1932), Frida Kahlo lied on a hospital bed naked and was surrounded with a few things floating around, which includes a fetus, a flower, a pelvis, a snail, all connected by veins. This painting was an expression of her feelings about her second miscarriage. It is as personal as her other self-portraits.

In 1933, Kahlo was living in New York City with husband Diego Rivera. Rivera was commissioned by Nelson Rockefeller to create a mural named as Man at the Crossroads at Rockefeller Center. Rivera tried to include Vladimir Lenin in the painting, who is a communist leader. Rockefeller stopped his work and that part was painted over. The couple had to move back to Mexico after this incident. They returned and live in San Angel, Mexico.

Frida Kahlo and Diego Rievea’s marriage is not an usual one. They had been keeping separate homes and studios for all those years. Diego had so many affairs and one of that was with Kahlo’s sister Cristina. Frida Kahlo was so sad and she cut off her long hair to show her desperation to the betrayal. She has been longed for children but she cannot bear one due to the bus accident. She was heartbroken when she experienced a second miscarriage in 1934. Kahlo and Rivera has been separated for a few times but they always went back together. In 1937 they helped Leon Trotsky and his wife Natalia. Leon Trotsky is a exiled communist and rival of Soviet leader Joseph Stalin. Kahlo and Rivera welcomed the couple together and let them stay at her Blue House. Kahlo also had a brief affair with Leon Trotsky when the couple stayed at her house.

In 1938, Frida Kahlo became friend of Andre Breton, who is one of the primary figures of Surrealism movement. Frida said she never considered herself as a Surrealist “until André Breton came to Mexico and told me I was one.” She also wrote, “Really I do not know whether my paintings are surrealist or not, but I do know that they are the frankest expression of myself”. “Since my subjects have always been my sensations, my states of mind and the profound reactions that life has been producing in me, I have frequently objectified all this in figures of myself, which were the most sincere and real thing that I could do in order to express what I felt inside and outside of myself.”

In the same year, she had an exhibition at New York City gallery. She sold some of her paintings and got two commissions. One of that is from Clare Boothe Luce to paint her friend Dorothy Hale who committed suicide. She painted The Suicide of Dorothy Hale (1939), which tells the story of Dorothy’s tragic leap. The patron Luce was horrified and almost destroyed this painting.

The next year, 1939, Kahlo was invited by Andre Breton and went to Paris. Her works are exhibited there and she is befriended with artists such as Marc Chagalland Pablo Picasso. She and Rivera got divorced that year and she painted one of her most famous painting, The Two Fridas(1939).

But soon Frida Kahlo and Diego Rivera remarried in 1940. The second marriage is about the same as the first one. They still keep separate lives and houses. Both of them had infidelities with other people during the marriage. Kahlo received a commission from the Mexican government for five portraits of important Mexican women in 1941, but she was unable to finish the project. She lost her beloved father that year and continued to suffer from chronic health problems. Despite her personal challenges, her work continued to grow in popularity and was included in numerous group shows around this time.

In the year of 1944, Frida Kahlo painted one of her most famous portrait, The Broken Column. In this painting she depicted herself naked and split down the middle. Her spine are shattered like column. She wears a surgical brace and there are nails all through her body, which is the indication of the consistent pain she went through. In this painting, Frida expressed her physical challenges by her art. During that time, she had a few surgeries and had to wear special corsets to protect her back spine. She seeks lots of medical treatment for her chronic pain but nothing really worked.

Her health condition has been worsening in 1950. That year she was diagnosed with gangrene in her right foot. She became bedridden for the next nine month and had to stay in hospital and had several surgeries. But with great persistence, Frida Kahlo continued to work and paint. In the year of 1953, she had a solo exhibition in Mexican. Although she had limited mobility at that time, she showed up on the exhibition’s opening ceremony. She arrived by ambulance, and welcomed the attendees, celebrated the ceremony in a bed the gallery set up for her. A few months later, she had to accept another surgery. Part of her right leg got amputated to stop the gangrene.

With the poor physical condition, she is also deeply depressed. She even had a inclination for suicide. Frida Kahlo has been out and in hospital during that year. But despite her health issues, she has been active with the political movement. She showed up at the demonstration against US backed overthrow of President Jacobo Arbenz of Guatemala on July 2. This is her last public appearance. About one week after her 47th birthday, Frida Kahlo passed away at her beloved Bule House. She was publicly reported to die of a pulmonary embolism, but there are speculation which was saying she died of a possible suicide.

Frida Kahlo’s fame has been growing after her death. Her Blue House was opened as a museum in the year of 1958. In 1970s the interest on her work and life are renewed due to the feminist movement, since she was viewed as an icon of female creativity. In 1983, Hayden Herrera published his book on her, A Biography of Frida Kahlo, which drew more attention from the public to this great artist. In the year of 2002, a movie named Frida was released, staring alma Hayek as Frida Kahlo and Alfred Molina as Diego Rivera. This movie was nominated for six Academy Awards and won for Best Makeup and Original Score.

Old School Picker of Vintage Before Was Made Cool

Have been a picker of vintage over 20 years developing my eye to create, here are a few of the things that I bought to sell.

They always said I had a creative eye.

I bought stuff that I found at estates entire contents were sold to me.

The old timers it seems we’re into upcycling long before we were, we have come up with living green, sustainable living, recycled reuse repurpose they are the ones who originated the idea. See they saved everything, because they had to many living thru the great depression.

They used feed sacks, sugar and flour sacks to make beautiful quilts that are valuable today is one example of recycled art. I see quilts as folk art not just a blanket to cover up at night, some would take as long as 2 years to make finding time here and there, when they had light to sew.

And would commonly be given as wedding gifts

many were never used and saved for years untouched.

The old timers taught me to be a picker, some had been doing it 35 and 45 years real pickers. Most didn’t go to garage sales you don’t have to if you know where to look.

One of the things they taught me they said never marry your junk son sell it and buy more because there is much out there if you know where to look.I have been to very few garage sales or even estate sales in my time.

I passed out business cards that said I Buy Junk

So I was known as the junkman, see they would start telling me how valuable this was or that was I would stop them and say I only want the junk. The pictures you see here is some of the junk.

Pretty good for a Junkman you think…

Sir Henry My Buddy a Rescue

Found Henry a few years ago, was on the side of the road I figured had been hit by a car and was dead. Just then I saw him move his head, so I turned around to check on him. Laying beside him was a empty bag of cheetos, seems he was licking the bag, he was starving skin and bones.

Noticed he had one gold eye and one light blue, he looked so sad and hungry. I inspected him noticed was a big cut across his back. As if someone had hit him with something and Henry was neutered.

He was just a puppy.

I called to him was going to put him in my car and grab him a hamburger, he just looked at me with those eyes as if he wanted to come but couldn’t get up. So picked him up put him into the car.

Bought him 2 hamburgers, he devoured them both and gave him some water then took him home. I put him up for adoption but no one was right for Sir Henry this was a special dog I could tell probably from royalty blood, he had manners wouldn’t eat with the other dogs.

Had to have his own bowl and will nibble at his food laying down with front arms crossed, the other rescues just dive right in.

He is forever grateful, I can tell a rescued animal never forgets what you did for them.

most shelters only hold the animals 3 days then put them down, they don’t tell you this of course but it a fact in my town anyway.

Thanks for reading about Sir Henry
