It has become rather cumbersome to maintain a dozen or more sites around this internet highway. Between FB, Google, Twitter, LinkedIn and an assortment of equally significant or lesser sites, the burden of maintaining the ever present redundancy, as we courageously engineer our American dream, has become too much. I think we have more important things to do, don't you think? We think so. That's not to say that we don't value our time together with you, we certainly do. We're just changing the venue.
We'll keep the personal FB pages, I suspect, but all the rest will disappear over time. Slowly, this page and a few other business related pages will be the focus of our attention. You will notice the other pages of note just below this post section.
Anyway, welcome, and please do visit as often as you can. Plenty will be happening in the coming days, months and years.

1. Newburyport Farmers Market has invited us to come up and discuss joining their merry band of merchants at their summer farmers market. We should do reasonably well as it's a tourist stop, and That Nutty Redhead does well at tourist stops. We'll shoot up there tomorrow.
2. Tuck's Candies of Rockport just ordered three cases of our That Nutty Redhead for their new store in Lynnfield, Ma. Hopefully things will start to ramp up for the coming year with other vendors.
3. Had the fitting yesterday in Boston for another movie filming on the 11th. I'll be an extra, and always a fun and interesting time is had.
4. My piece was, once again, accepted to the Artrageous!29 auction held by Montserrat College of Art in Beverly! It was a lovely time last year, and my piece did sell.

You know about episodes 3 & 4, they are as complete as they are going to get at this point, and have been uploaded to YouTube. Episode 5 of local interest - Granite in Victorian America - should be complete by end of day tomorrow.
The Edwardian shows - 6 & 7 - show be done by end of week, I hope; at least 6.
Future planned shows are as follows:
Another Steampunk episode, this time dealing with the fashions and the ties to the Victorians.
How about a show dedicated to Victorian Flirtation?
And I'm piecing together a Mourning show.
All three will be green screened for added effect.
It's going to get interesting now :)

New stores are already signing up for That Nutty Redhead product, with the new packaging. It will be the week that we actually order the new packaging. Here's a sample -
FYI, for all those that pledged to our Kickstarter campaign, we're going to wait for the new packaging to arrive before sending out your rewards. You guys should be the first to receive our new prize. Thanks again for all your support.
I do need to return back to the job of completing my Civil War Letters book - With Pen in Hand - for Schiffer Publishing. I hope to have it done by the summer months.

For one, I need to get back to my work and books in waiting. I have such a back catalogue of pieces to attend to. But it's not just the return to photography and writing, it's the return to a former mental functionality that allowed me the joy of creating. Basically, I have to reignite my creative 'mojo'. My attention has met with many diversions over the past few years. For the most part good ones, but diversions nonetheless. Something inside is tugging at me, and it's time to go back when.
Our television show, All Things Victorian, has taken quite a turn in 2014, and I'll not drop the ball on this project. It's an award winner! And who would have guessed it would have extracted a First Place in such a competitive field, in it's first year! ATV has my, and our, ardent attention in 2015.
And for the Lady, and her business, my undivided, undying, Love and Dedication. One Nutty Redhead I've waited for all my life; the other Nutty Redhead, a welcomed appointment. To do is too heal, and heal we must together and forever.
Onward and Upward I always like to say. Have a Great and Happy New Year everyone.
