The Stuhr Museum of the Prairie Pioneer in Pictures

Located in Grand Island Nebraska this is my favorite museum. Rich in Nebraska history it houses a railroad town and historical artifacts. Here are photographs from several trips to the museum to capture it at its greenest and in the white of a freshly fallen winter snow.

The Living Stone Studio

I walked through Art Walk this summer and came across Deborah Shuck’s The Living Stone Studio and purchased a few things for gifts and as the holiday season is upon us I decided to photograph the things I’d purchased for other people before they are gone just to show what an amazing designer Deborah is.

First, these are gifts rooted in faith. What could be better than to give a gift with real meaning? Second; they are really exceptional pieces of jewelry. Very well made and truly a piece of art.

Before you hit Amazon, eBay and Overstock, be sure to check out Deb’s shop on Etsy at


On The Living Stone Studio‘s Business Card:

1 Peter 2:4-5

Come to Him as to a living Stone which men rejected and threw away, but which is choice and precious in the sight of God 5) You, like living stones, are being built up into a spiritual house for a holy and dedicated priesthood, to offer spiritual sacrifices acceptable and pleasing to God through Jesus Christ.

it may be time for an intuitive healing session. Maybe you’re about to make a huge life changing decision and feel lost as to what direction to take. Maybe your health, relationship or career is failing, and you want to make a positive change

You might need a session

New site debut March 22nd, 2019 for Non Profit Being Alive in San Diego Thriving for those living with HIV/AIDS. #BeingAliveSD #NewSite #WordPress #AIDSHIV #SanDiego #California #NonProfit by

I’ve been doing work for Being Alive San Diego since 2013.

Being Alive San Diego was founded in 1989 by HIV+ individuals who volunteered their time and talents to fill the need for support and empowerment in the HIV/AIDS affected community. Today, BASD is the largest, continually operating support service organization for people living with HIV/AIDS in San Diego County, improving the quality of life for more than 8,000 San Diegans affected by this disease. BASD’s client population reflects the profile detailed in the 2009 HIV/AIDS Epidemiology Report prepared by the County of San Diego Health & Human Services Agency. Our clients are typically living in San Diego’s central region, 80% are living at or below the federal poverty level and 50% of our clients that receive Peer counseling are 45 years or older.

Let’s start at the very beginning

After a few days of tweaking and adding graphics and deciding who to include and what work didn’t really need to be displayed I finally called this revamp a wrap. For the moment.

All backed up and ready to let fly.

It’s amazing to me, the amount of work I have done over the years since I decided to try it on my own. I knew at the time it was always about the next project, the next client, the next… as my bills weren’t going to wait for “the next” to pay up… it was always a constant push to keep meetings, keep coding, keep photographing and keep creating, so when I looked at my backup drives and see the hundreds of former clients and projects it’s a little daunting.

When did I sleep? How did I sleep?

I know I took a break daily to get to the gym and other than that, nothing else really sticks out as being important other than getting meetings, circulating and meeting the next client and then getting the work done.

Part of being your own employer in a city like San Diego, means you realize quickly, no one is going to “give” you anything and you have to hustle and work diligently to get projects going and then gone.

Meaning completed.

So here’s an unintentional tribute to jobs past as I’m putting in a few graphics of sites I did that are no longer in existence, but to me they still look good! Now, on to “the next!
