In the darkness of the new moon Caterina da Padua watched the fat merchant’s house from a nearby rooftop. The family claimed descent from the fabled Polos, so tomorrow Caterina saw herself purchasing linens from Constantinople, paying from her newly filled strong box. Tonight that shipment of gem stones would be hers, penance for the sins of greed and pride. Never boast, not within Caterina’s hearing. Best of all, her victim tonight would never suspect the villain, Venice’s famed thief Midnight Rose, la signora de la notte, was their own beautiful neighbor.
Venice: Merchant Prince is NOT the Venice of merchants princes or romantic gondoliers. Its buildings represent the merchant elite of the Serene Republic. Don’t think of double-dealing Doges or romantic gondoliers. Instead, smell the stench of corpse-filled canals and dodge the bodies left by thugs or disease.
The core building stands over twelve inches high with roof and chimneys with a four by six inch footprint. You have a choice of three textures: raw brick, beige, or yellow. There’s a narrow balcony, an impressive entrance, stairs, and an assortment of windows for both the family and servant quarters. Pop the roof off and the building can be collapsed to save storage space.
Remember, every Finger and Toe model comes with SMOOSH ASSURANCE: if ya’ll smoosh your Venice: Merchant Prince, a new one waits your summons from hard drive and printer.

Outstanding model, sir. There are so many things to like about this. When I finally get rolling on things again, I want to do more of the working class neighborhoods. There is a lot more of those than palaces
There are no strangers in this world,only people I haven't embarrassed ... yet!
Vermin King: Got to see Jeff Beck at one of those. Pretty cool. Only time I saw Adrian Belew was at a club gig in KC. Now, I am trying to get Mom up and running on Pandora for old country music. It's her first smart phone

Vermin King: I think I have it going now, Barbara Streisand hasn't come up on Willie Nelson in over 48 hours. Back when I was in Cleveland, a disc jockey was formerly with Peter Frampton's band. He set up club gigs for folks

senkosmos: I'm a fan of every artist you mentioned, particularly Jeff Beck (Beck, Boggart & Appice being among my top 3 heavy blues albums, I'ts certainly a pity that Pandora is given you such a hard time to listen to Belew

Vermin King: I then did another search and started a new Adrian Belew station. It did have 'Artist Only', but the Thumbs Playlist would only go to eight songs. If I added a song, it deleted another. I think I now have it fixed. Didn't have that problem with others

Vermin King: Back to Pandora. I doubt that there are many Adrian Belew fans here, but on Pandora he is jinxed. I deleted the radio station since it did not offer 'Artist Only' mode, and the Adrian Belew Radio Thumbs Playlist never existed.

Vermin King: Rant over ... almost. I'm sure I will be back on this later

Vermin King: And Tom Petty is on every station, including Willie Nelson. I like Tom Petty's songs, but not to where I have collected his station, and he certainly doesn't fit on the Jeff Beck station.

Vermin King: And why does the David Bowie station play America and John Denver? Aargh
Jun 7, 2021 16:36:49 GMT -9
Vermin King: I totally do not understand Pandora any more. I changed phones and when I logged into Pandora, my stations were basically wiped clean. Adrian Belew used to have Adrian Belew, King Crimson, Zappa, etc. Now it has only played one true Adrian Belew song

squirmydad: Last year the schools did drive-thru graduations. No overtime, not authorized this year.

cowboyleland: Canada is up to 50% (eligible) vaccinated but we are still not reopening schools. My kid probably won't get a grad at all.
May 17, 2021 6:38:27 GMT -9
Vermin King: Oo, doggies! I hope you get overtime
May 17, 2021 4:22:28 GMT -9
squirmydad: I'm setting up staging and sound systems, running the grad, then striking and rolling to the next one. I'm pretty tired and still have one more week of these. An end of year concerts.
May 15, 2021 21:07:38 GMT -9
squirmydad: Returning to normal means that for me I'm working every graduation (x27) that the schools and programs are doing this spring, each graduation being on the schools site, sometimes 2 or 3 in the same day.
May 15, 2021 21:06:05 GMT -9
Vermin King: I guess returning to normal is causing things to be very quiet here lately

mproteau (Paper Realms): rag - the best thing to do is to pull the art out of the PDF and print straight from Silhouette Studio. That way you can ensure you have the registration marks you want, and the cutlines all line up. I have a video showing how to do this easily if needed.

cowboyleland: I thought they got rid of all their free accounts, but it looks like they re-thought that policy.

rag: mproteau - The plan is Worldworks' Titan Control. They have the cutfiles but the marks are in the old format - we'll see how it goes.

mproteau (Paper Realms): Oooh... I'm at 256 out of 1000 photos... so, I suppose at some point I'll fall over and look elsewhere... and have to fix up all my product listings! I'll use my space frugally.

mproteau (Paper Realms): I have all my photos on flickr, and have never paid anything...
