Vote Obama

Get out and Vote!

We drove up to Pahoa and voted. I didn't want to wait until Tuesday, even though it would have been at Kalani (which would have been fun). There were no lines and no one was doing the electronic voting when I was there (they only had one machine). Maybe everyone is afraid of some kind of fraud. I didn't think of that at the time, I was just being my usual gadget self and it seemed easier to me. Besides, in this case, they did have a printer that made a copy of my votes.

There were two people running the election station that day. A woman at the computer who looked things up and a big guy who asked for i.d. The guy was kind of unsmiling and scarey, but then he offered us all Halloween candy.

It's my latest passion... I'll be selling them as greeting cards.

Chicago/Dick Nelson style



I couldn't help notice after taking Dick Nelson's color class these examples of his 'color arrays'. The morning sunlight hitting the Hancock building and then the stunning airport corridor on our way to our gate!

Chicago






What an amazingly beautiful city. I had no idea. This was my first trip. I couldn't believe the great architecture, how clean it was and how wide the sidewalks were. Wide enough to also have flower beds galore! Granted I spent most of my time in the downtown area near the Hancock (I think it was a nice part of town). The 'bean' was the unanimous favorite in the art department, but there were a lot of contenders. We did the tourist thing and rode the doubledecker bus. I highly recommend this as a great way to get a quick overview tour.
