Service Beacon

Service Beacon

You love your car, but you can’t ever remember when it needs to be serviced. Am I right? That happens to my roommate all the time.

Phone Number Comments

I can’t begin to tell you how frustrated I am! There is a number that calls my house several times a day and when I pick up, there is never anyone there.

MoMA: Georges Seurat

MoMA: Georges Seurat

I have loved Georges Seurat’s art since I was in high school French class! We studied all the major French artists as part of our course work one year. Seurat is best known for the painting “A Sunday on La Grande Jatte” and as the inventor of pointillism, but there is so much more to his artwork that’s often forgotten. This Web site explores his… Continue reading

Fruit and Veggie Guru

Fish Watch

Fish Watch

This Web site poses the question: “Are you seafood savvy?” I know for certain that I am not! I am not a huge fan of seafood.
