* Policy *

* Like my website, this show is for kids, women, seniors and families.  There will
  be NO dirty humor at this show.  A person doesn't have to be dirty to be funny.  

* Everything appearing in the show, will be listed and shown in each of the three
  Sections/display pages, in the form of graphics or description, so the organization will
  know ahead of  time as to what the show constists of.  

* There will be no religious or political material displayed; no inappropriate material, etc. 

* This show is for schools; non-profit/charitable organizations; hospitals; non-profit 
  arts and crafts shows, etc. 

* This show is not for churches/or religious groups of any kind; politics/political groups;
  controversial groups such as abortion; smoking, etc.  No tobacco or alcohol-related
  businesses or groups of any kind. 

* I will require a letter from the organization (on organization stationary), detailing the
  organization event; the why; who; where; what; when; and two contact persons.

* I will require at least 30 days notice of the event by the organization.  (in writing) 

* There will be no sales; soliciting; or hand-outs of any kind on my part.  Three
  examples of this, is the WANTED poster shown on my site.  The corporate sponsor
  and the book page.  None of these will be part of the show.  You can see these pages
  and then reture here.  This show is for the public to enjoy without sales pitches! 

* I know the question of displaying at businesses is going to come up, so I might as well
  address it now.  If the show is successful, and that will take time, consideration will be
  given to the business community, but there will be a fee attached to the show.   Other
  than that, I haven't given it much thought.

* I'm trying to make this show as organized as possible, that I would like to be able to set
  it up in about 30 minutes.  If I can do this, I can set up this show for the members of
  the organization as a "preview" in its entirety BEFORE the show/event.  At this time
  (July, 2007) all this is just on paper, but I think I can do it, because of the way I'm
  building the displays.  If this can be done, the members of the organization can ask
  questions and we can make changes can be made before the show/event, etc.   What
  this means, is that I want the members of the organization to be happy with the show,
  and free of worry that something might not be suitable for display or some other
  reasons, etc.  There's only so much any of us can do on a computer or in photos.  (I
  will let you know later what I can do)

*Introduction*
Over my lifetime, and like everyone else, I've had my share of life's ups and downs!  But, for the most part, Old Glory has been good to me and my family, so I must give back.  And, I choose to do this by putting together a show for free to hopefully benefit others. 
Pink slip/job loss!

Why Didn't Think of That?
How many times have you asked yourself that question?
This show is about humor and creativity!
Busy as a beaver!
Orange Barrel Institute (Think tank)
(Orange New Jersey) 

According to the Orange Barrel Institute, who does research on the motoring public, has stated that anxiety, stress and road rage is at an all time high in this country, and many motorists may be suffering from one on the little-known conditions listed below:  
* PMS - Post Motoring Syndrome                * PTSD - Post Traumatic Street Disorder
* SAD - Seasonal Asphalt Disorder             * RSD - Reflex Street Distrophy
                                                                                      (Common in older drivers)
Oh no...there goes our vacation...orange barrels as far as the eye can see!
What's one of the best ways to learn?  From others, right?  Other people's experiences...both good and bad; their education; skills; talents; wisdom and so forth.  All of us are teachers AND students in life.  We're always teaching our kids or someone else something...and at the same time in this high-tech society, we're always learning something from somebody else, etc.  We all have to to keep pace with technologies, which change at a dizzying pace...and if we don't, we'll fall off this fast-moving train!

In his book, Sam Walton (Wal-Mart) stated that he never stole ideas from his competitor's.  But, he would go see what and how they were doing things, and take those ideas...and modify them for his own use.  And, that's what my website and this show is all about...sharing!  People can come to my website or my show, and modify ideas for their own use...because humor and creativity just seem to go together!  SHARING!

* I've been wanting to do a show like this for a long time, but one thing or another
  always seemed to get in the way.  The best way to proceed, is to try to limit the
  amount of time and money spent on the project.  The best way to do that, has
  been to get out announcements about the show to organizations; businesses and
  indivuals, and see what the response will be. Testing the waters, if you will, to see
  if there is any interest in the show, or if I get my "rejection slip" early on!   If there is
  no or not much interest, the idea for the show will be abandoned, and I will go
  back to doing my other projects.  
New and updated information will be entered in this section on a regular basis

* About 50 announcements of the show were mailed out to various organizations
  around town.  Organizations can get on my mailing list by sending me a note by
  snail-mail (organization stationary) at PO Box 81161, Albuquerque, N.M. 87198.  Name
  of organization; contact person; address; phone number.  Those getting on the
  mailing list will recieve an acknowledgment of receipt by way of snail-mail.

* Everyone is creative and so are YOU! I don't, necessarily, want this Section
  to look like my Front Page, but. like my website, this show is about humor and
  creativity. (ideas)  A person doesn't have to be a rocket scientist or a brain

  personal use, etc.

* BackgroundAs a woodcarver for over 25 years, I'm out of the art and craft world,
  and I have no background in writing whatsoever.  During that time, I produced over
  200 cartoon-like characters in wood, and participated in over 40 arts and crafts show
  around the state of New Mexico selling my work.  I founded and directed the Fiesta of
  Arts and Crafts for six shows in Rio Rancho, but the fair was abandoned because of
  the high cost to put on a show like this successfully.  So, as the reader can see, I've 
  been around the block a few times, etc. 
Displays for show
* 1 table (4ft) covered with orange cloth
* 1 table(4ft) covered with gold cloth
* 1 table (4ft) covered with white/and aqua
Show displays
As shown to the right, the displays are separated, to have good traffic flow, but in area, they consist of about 12' by 12'...not much larger than a space that an artist/craftsperson is given for a show.  These displays cannot be up
against a wall, because there is viewing on both sides of the displays, etc
I have gotten black and white copies out of my website, but never color copies.  To keep expenses down and not to waste time, I am working on the color photos coming out of my site.  The color copies will be framed and hung in my home office, and if the show goes forward, they will be taken off the wall and taken to the show...that way I can kill two or three birds with one stone, etc.  A lot of the other material, will go into the Creative Center on my website, that way, little or no time will be wasted.

Progress
The displays consist of three parts:  1) The table where everything sits; 2) a framed box made of lumber 1" by 4" and covered with a piece of plexiglass;   3) another box made of 1" by 4" sits on top of the the box laying down.  Both sides of the frame are cover with plexiglass for viewing of the material.  By doing it this way, it should eliminate theft and/or vandalism. 
Font Size
Everything in the show, will be displayed with bold lettering; #12; #14 and larger, so the writing can be read easily by the public and so may people who are visibly challenged.
Lettering
I will use special lettering for the show, and I've used some in the past which are fabulous, and add so much to the scene.  Examples: cheese lettering; keyboard lettering; chain-link lettering; bubbles lettering; building blocks lettering and I know there are many more. 
Number of items displayed
About 75 items will be displayed, but that number is subject to change,
depending on how things go.
