Rocks in the Head

This weekend was all about jewelry once again. We headed out to Lebanon, PA for the Gem Miner's Jubilee on Saturday. It was a good show with lots of great raw materials available and Peg scored a couple of nice pieces to add to her collection including the pictured citrine geode for real cheap. Sunday selling at the Mountain Community Marketplace really was bad; we had no sales. Summertime slow down is kicking our butts. We broke down quickly after closing and ran over to the International Gem and Jewelry Show over in Chantilly, VA to pick up some supplies. The G&J Shows have really gone downhill lately. They are now letting vendors sell all kinds of crap at these shows and I mean crap. There are quite a few vendors selling cheap imported goods which have nothing to do with jewelry. Luckily our few regular vendors were still there so we stocked up on supplies. Christmas is coming. Oh, did I just say that....

NCL Norwegian Pearl Cruise to Alaska - The Haven Courtyard

If you ever have a chance to sail to Alaska, do it! If you can save up a little more to be able to stay in The Haven Courtyard on Norwegian Cruise Lines, do it! For our anniversary Peg and I decided we would take our first cruise to Alaska. NCL sales called us, last minute, and offered us a deal to upgrade to a penthouse in The Haven Courtyard aboard the Norwegian Pearl. We did and it was fantastic! The Bird of Paradise Courtyard Suite Room 14014 (an S5 level penthouse suite) would be our home for the seven day cruise which started in Seattle, Washington.

Photos from Craig Naff's Hotrod Body Shop with Ron Covell

It's not often that you get the chance to hang out with one of the world's best hotrod metal shapers, Craig Naff. Add to that the fact that Ron Covell, a fantastic metal fabricator and instructor, would be teaching a class in Craig's shop and you have the potential for a fantastic Saturday. I made the drive over to Craig's shop on the outskirts of Woodstock, VA early in the morning using Ron Covell's Basic Metal Shaping class as an excuse to get out of the house.
