After all these years of blogging I’ve decided to re-vamp my Retro Info blog.
The new hotness can be found at blogspot.
Thank you to my readers who have followed my retro ramblings all these years.
I hope you will continue to read my new blog and enjoy my retro info, links, videos, etc on blogspot.]]>
Yesterday, we surprised Grayson by taking him to see what appeared in Uncle Lew’s carport. We told our boy there is a mystery at Lewis’ house and he needs Grayson to help solve it. As we drove up to the house, this little boys eyes got wide! As we got out of the car, Brian said “Look whats in Lewis’ carport! WHO could have been here?".
Grayson couldn’t believe his eyes. At first, he was a little shy. I’m sure he wasn’t expecting to see a TARDIS today. Who ever does? Well you know WHO! As he got closer to the big blue box, he became more excited! He said “It’s the TARDIS!". Lewis gave him the key to open it and said, “It’s much bigger on the inside!". Grayson opened the door, and the three of them hopped inside. They were in there for awhile as it seemed to me. They were probably pushing the wrong buttons and swimming in the pool. They were gone for only about 15 minutes as it seemed to me but when they came out, they said they were gone for 15 hours! I wonder where they went!
What a wonderful surprise for our little boy. My husband and his friends have worked in the film industry for many years. You never know what you might see at one of his collegues homes or what might show up at our house. We once had a giant pterydactyl in our laundry room. But that’s another story. Thank you to our talented and creative friend Lewis for making our boys day. Have fun at Comic Con!
Check out Lewis’ Happiness Patrol podcast where he talks about all things Doctor Who

I really like your Calder influenced art
Could you tell me more about it?
The Calder influenced art is work I did for a show by Elroy Artspace (a gallery in Portland, Oregon) titled "Lollipop Circus", a tribute to Calder. I have worked in similar styles before and Joe at Elroy Artspace asked me to do some works specifically on this theme for his group show at "The Original". These are Calder influenced but they are equally inspired by South Pacific Art, Arp, Miro and Jim Flora. Arp and Miro being contemporaries to Calder and Jim Flora being a pioneering commercial artist that took inspiration from Modern Art.

I just finished using the Oreck Steam-Glide steam mop for the first time and look how my terrazzo shines!
Look at the amount of dirt it cleaned up and I mopped the floor with a traditional mop and bucket last night!
Thanks cuz' for the steam mop. I love how great it cleans and I also like the fact that it uses only water and steam to clean, not harmful chemicals. The cleaning attachment is machine washable. No swiffers ending up in the landfill. It cleans tile floors amazingly and it is eco-friendly and safe for the little ones.]]>
Scooby Doo Where Are You?
Will someone cool who appreciates mid century modern architecture please buy our old house?
We loved this house so much and put our heart and soul into it. Here it is when we used to live there. Be sure to check out the virtual tour.
Here it is now with ugly paint choices and drab curtains. Over grown trees outside.
Still, it is a bargain and all you need to make it retro mod again is some paint and tree trimming.]]>
My favorites have to be the mini dress, shoes, boots, bag, headband, girls, baby and the bike! Wow!
Now if only they could get Pucci to design a line for Target next. OMG!]]>
