These are some sweet slopes!
Before you bite into that apple or take a sip of that wine, may I suggest you say a little prayer of thanks for the little people?

He subtly draws our attention to the effects of consumerism and globalism, alluding to the depletion of fragile natural resources, the disappearance of cultural traditions… Continue

Matthew is a Grammy-nominated designer, illustrator and painter that resides and works from his studio, Imagefed, in the… Continue

About my avatar, I visited Jamaica last Nov...I was on a cruise..even tho we had to out run a late hurricane I had a wonderful time.

Most everything they grow on the island is used in some way to benefit the… Continue

Ferrari Enzo, Porsche Carerra GT and Mercedes-McLaren SLR? Not even close.
The Maxximus… Continue
