Modern Times

I’d planned to write about something else, but my thoughts keep returning to those awful machines that were invented for the express purpose of destroying life. Guns.

Whole Lotta Koz Goin’ On!

The Pottery 90210 Holiday Sale was a tremendous success! What an amazing experience, to spend 5 consecutive days working with a group of people in a relatively small space, and have it be a fun, educational, organized, and successful event, without once encountering problems or flaring of egos.

These heartfelt letters have […]
