Gregg Klewicki sometimes travels off the beaten path. It helps explain how he has carved out a career as an artist-sculptor despite no formal training and using little more than a chain saw.
"I was a truck driver and I just got tired of working for someone else," said Klewicki, 45, of Huntington.
He came to his new profession by experimenting and allowing his latent creativity to emerge.

New, Easier C P R !!!



II have seen this before, but you might learn something new that may save a life. 
 
 
Here is a demonstration of the new, easier CPR which takes the complication out of the method that was taught and  practiced a few years ago.  Please Watch - It's easy to remember and you don't have to be certified to use this method, and it may save a life!  This is a  great demonstration, done by the doctors who developed  the procedure at the University of Arizona Sarver Heart  Center.
I urge you to watch and then share it with those you care about.

Carving a Sweet Potato


SWEET POTATO

 
BUY 2-3 TATERS SO YOU WORK THEM IN DIFFERENT STAGES DURING THIS 30+ DAY FUN PROJECT.
* BUY BIG ONE'S, IT'S GONNA SHRINK AND MUTATE FOR A MONTH AFTER YOU SKIN HIM. BEFORE BUYING, LOOK AT A FEW TATER SHAPES AND PICK THE ONE THAT YOU SEE A CARICATURE IN. I CARVE FACES, CABINS, CARS, SOMETIMES DRAGONS. KIDS GET A KICK OUT OF DOING THESE. GUYS NOT OLD ENOUGH TO USE A KNIFE ARE ASSIGNED TO THE SHRINKING DEPT., MUTATE DEPT. AND MUSHIN INSPECTOR.
1. SKIN HIM OUT, REMOVE A PAPER THIN LAYER OFF.
