First of all, let me apologize for some link errors – first I misspelled “hear” (though “here ye” may very well make sense in some context). Secondly, I noticed that I messed up one of the links on my About page. The correct link is www.pricelesspurity.org.

Some of our aunts and uncles visited the other day. Aunt Laurel and Aunt Jenny would like me to paint portraits of their children. If I take on projects like that, I think I ought to get some more practice on painting childrens’ faces first.

For months I’ve had a painting planned to be based on some pictures of Beth and her little friend Jenny Clark.

We’ll see how that works out.

Secondly, the seat work portion of homeschooling for the siblings starts on August 4th. We’ve been working on a daily routine for that. I actually plan to be up doing chicken chores at 7:00 A.M. and then working on my CLEP study until 10:00 A.M. Then I’ll work with David and Beth and afterwards have the rest of the day open for my various projects. My GHC deadline is August 17th. I’ve considered entering a screenplay pitch competition which has a deadline of August 31st. To enter, you submit a film of yourself describing your story and why it would make a great movie. I certainly wouldn’t expect to win, but at least I would know that producers and directors would actually get to hear about the screenplay and perhaps one of them would be personally interested.
California Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger recently passed a food-related bill. The other night Dad suggested that I send him a note telling him about my project and how his recent decision reminds me of that history…so I did. At least I know that someone will read that note, since active politicians have their e-mail/mail sifted much more frequently than film executives do.

After all, the point is to spread the fascinating story of The Crusading Chemist. I simply decided that a movie would be the best educational medium in our day and age to teach the public.

Yesterday our friend Lissette Maltass came over to show us some of the Mary Kay products she is selling. I very rarely wear makeup (with the exception of a little Burt’s Bees Lip Shimmer), but every now and then it is fun to use.
