    In Honor of Earth Day

    "Rocky Road Ahead "

    I thought this would be an appropriate posting for Earth Day.
    Whether you believe that the earth’s warming is temporary or a real danger, it’s pretty hard to ignore the changes due to the “greenhouse effect” – “the rapid retreat of glaciers in Greenland, Alaska, the Himalayas, the Antarctic Peninsula, and on high tropical mountains; the thinning and disappearance of sea ice in the Arctic Ocean during summer; the melting of permafrost in Canada, Alaska, and Siberia; and the rise of sea level and an increase in extreme weather.” (Larry O'Hanlon for the Discovery Channel)

    I've got to say that's probably one of the most amazing works I've ever seen - period. I've seen your other amazing pieces, but the imagination, thought, and execution of this one truly makes it a work of art.

    Malcolm that is absolutely stunning. What a wonderful piece. That had to be lots of work. Beautiful.

    Only one thing Malcolm don't let Andy Hoyt see it. It may get consumed.

    Malcom, that is just incredible. The imagination in the design is great, and the execution is incredible. You also make these pretty quickly considering how intricate and perfect they are.

    That is indeed an impressive piece Malcolm! Your talent of imagination and the turning expertise to produce what you have imagined amazes me!

    And to think that Clint Eastwood ran for mayor because you couldn't eat something like that in public!

    Words fail me. Incredible.

  15. Interesting piece, Malcolm. But if you guys want to stop global warming you need to read Sheryl Crow's solution. She has it all figured out...
