A visit to the Morse Tiffany museum in Winter Park Florida



A visit to the Morse Tiffany museum in Winter Park Florida http://kevindayhoffart.blogspot.com/2015/03/a-visit-to-morse-tiffany-museum-in.html

February 27, 2015

Caroline and I visited the Morse Museum http://www.morsemuseum.org/ on Friday, February 27, 2015. It is not very far from Orlando Florida. It is well worth taking a day off from Disney or Universal Studios to spend a day in the Morse Museum. It is simply an incredible exhibit… Reported to be the “world’s most comprehensive collection of the works of Lois Comfort Tiffany.”

And if the art does not take your breath away, the comprehensive history presentation putting the art in an American history context is quite well done and worth the visit alone…

Besides this time of the year, it is warm – no snow. Winter Park Florida will remind you of St. Armand’s Circle in Sarasota Florida. Very nice area of Florida.

Anna Maria ranked third among U.S. islands – Charles Schelle Bradenton Herald

Anna Maria ranked third among U.S. islands – Charles Schelle Bradenton Herald

Gr8 article on Anna Maria ranked third among U.S. islands by @ImYourChuck http://www.bradenton.com/2014/02/20/5002473/anna-maria-ranked-third-among.html

BY CHARLES SCHELLE cschelle@bradenton.com February 20, 2014


ANNA MARIA ISLAND -- TripAdvisor has named Anna Maria Island the No. 3 island in the United States, up a spot from last year's No. 4 ranking.

The rating is based on the second annual Traveler's Choice Island awards from the website that compiles ratings and recommendations from travelers.

The TripAdvisor ranking is incredibly important to tourism in Anna Maria, notes Elliott Falcione, executive director for the Bradenton Area Convention and Visitors Bureau.

"TripAdvisor is really our biggest critic when it comes to visitation," Falcione said. "For them to rank Anna Maria with its character and Old Florida environment, it shows once again it's one of the top places to visit in the United States."


According to a TripAdvisor.com site poll, 72 percent of U.S. respondents plan on visiting an island in 2014. Marco Island topped the list, with Chincoteague Island, Va., coming in second. Key West was the only other Florida island to make the list at No. 10.


Top 10 Islands in the U.S.: 1. Marco Island, Florida 2. Chincoteague Island, Virginia 3. Anna Maria Island, Florida 4. San Juan Island, Washington 5. Maui, Hawaii 6. Kauai, Hawaii 7. Island of Hawaii, Hawaii 8. Nantucket, Massachusetts 9. Hilton Head, South Carolina 10. Key West, Florida

Chris De Rubeis, Fine Art of Metal, 716 Duval St., Key West, FL


Chris De Rubeis, Fine Art of Metal, 716 Duval St., Key West, FL 33040 by Kevin Dayhoff, February 10, 2011

Well-known as a haven for artists, writers, tourists and snowbirds, Key West’s constant temperature in the 70s and warm Caribbean breezes makes navigating the 2-mile by 4-mile island-in-the-sun a joy for a refugee from the frozen north.

Key West, Florida has a long history that is intertwined with speculators, plundering sea wrecks, U.S. presidents, the railroad, fishing, boats, artists and writers, sun and fun.

The southernmost city in the United States is actually closer to Havana, Cuba, than Miami, Florida; and at times, the place is so weird, you may also conclude that it is just within sight of the edge of sanity and good taste – of which the locals are quite proud.

If you weave your way up Duval Street from Mallory Square, past the tourist-oriented shops and free spirits at Sloppy Joe’s at the corner of Greene and Duval Streets, keep a sharp eye out for a number of high-end clothing stores, jewelers, and art galleries.

Indeed, there are quite a number of art galleries in town which cater to everyone from the casual tourist-oriented sun-sand-and-beach crowd, to the hardy-partier booze and broads, to the serious collector.

Out for an evening walk, last Thursday evening, I found that I could easily walk by the ubiquitous ice cream parlors, bars, t-shirt shops, and eateries.  However I found myself quite distracted by an amazingly beautiful motorcycle in the window one small gallery at 716 Duval St. that had a pleasant, inviting, and exciting array of meticulously vibrant colors in the immediate background - the art of Chris De Rubeis …

I wondered why I had not noticed this art gallery before.  I have rather fine-tuned radar for professionally managed galleries and cutting edge art.  Poking around the web I came across an article by a Keys magazine, Conch Color, that indicates that it opened last March, 2010, just after my last annual pilgrimage to Key West, in search of sunshine and warmth: Grand Opening of “DeRubeis Fine Art of Metal” Gallery, By: Conch Color, March 26, 2101: http://conchcolor.com/index.php/site/stories-all/grand-opening-of-derubeis-fine-art-of-metal-gallery/

According to a website bio, http://www.derubeisfineart.com/biography.html, the art of Chris De Rubeis…  Born in 1978… is referred to as “Abstract Sensualism.”

For folks who are reading this from Baltimore, apparently the work of De Rubeis may also be found at the Light Street Gallery, http://www.lightstreetgallery.com/ArtistBio/2389/12, 1448 Light Street, Baltimore, MD 21230, (p) 301-762-4908, info@LightStreetGallery.com.

The Light Street Gallery says, “Chris De Rubeis was given an airbrush by his grandfather.  What followed was unrestrained creativity that spans the breadth of dynamic abstracts featuring weightless, diaphanous and seamless forms of color and light to hyper-photo realism.  Further distinguished by holographic imagery and haunting sensuality, his unique work creates and in fact, exaggerates depth through the masterful manipulation of light.

“Chris is of the opinion that, ‘...all art should inspire and evoke emotion... art should be something you can actually feel.’  Though capable of capturing light on any surface, his preferred medium is aluminum.  ‘...I favor metal because I can combine a form of sculpture as the foundation for my expression and have found a way to enhance my ability to communicate emotions more intently.’”

“Chris De Rubeis has studied at the Pasadena Art Center College of Design, as well as the Associates in Art College in Sherman Oaks. He was inducted into the National Art Honors Society and was a key contributor to the California Institute of the Arts Community Art Showcase. His work was featured during the telecast of the 2000 American Music Awards. Also, as the exclusive airbrush artist for MGS custom motorcycles, Chris' airbrush played the key role for their flagship chopper, "Dragon Slayer," which continues to earn many awards, including "Best Paint" at the 2005 Grand National Roadster Show.

“He has appeared with his work on the Playboy Channel and has been featured on the DIY network (fall '06).  In July 2005, Chris was honored with two nominations in the ‘mixed media’ and ‘new movement’ categories and was the proud recipient of the first annual ARTV Award in New Movement.

“Whether he paints metal, waterfalls, canvas, custom choppers or cars, his distinctive body of work continues to be respected and appreciated at galleries, custom bike and car shows, commercial buildings and private collections.” http://www.lightstreetgallery.com/ArtistBio/2389/12

The Sunshine Skyway Bridge in Tampa Bay Florida


The Sunshine Skyway Bridge in Tampa Bay Florida

February 20, 2010 by Kevin Dayhoff

Two photos of the Sunshine Skyway Bridge in Tampa Bay Florida, as viewed from the Manatee County shore rest area. Photographed February 20, 2010 by Kevin Dayhoff

The five-and-a-half mile, $244 million structure which spans from Terra Ceia - Bradenton in Manatee County to St. Petersburg, Florida is the world's longest cable-stayed concrete bridge. The roadway is built to provide clearance of 190 feet above the water where the bridge spans the shipping channel.

It was opened to traffic on April 20, 1987 and is a part of the I-275 - US 19 road network.

A previous bridge, which stood in approximately the same position in the bay, was built in 1954, was partially destroyed in the morning of May 9, 1980, when a freighter, the “Summit Venture,” collided with the bridge resulting in 35 people losing their lives.

Unfortunately, the magnificent structure has also attracted personal tragedies. As many as 127 persons have jumped to their death from the bridge according to a St. Petersburg Times newspaper article by Jamie Jones, published October 6, 2003: “Skyway safeguards don't deter jumpers - At least 10 people have jumped already this year, despite crisis phones and 24-hour patrols.” What a paradox that such a beautiful structure would be used for something so unpleasant.

According to a report by Jose Garcia, "The Skyway Bridge - Yesterday, Today & Tomorrow,” for the Florida Department of Transportation, the bridge rates Travel Channel’s No. 3 of “Top 10 Bridges.”

It is not to be missed…

20070220 How bad was last week’s snowstorm


How bad was last week’s snowstorm in Westminster Maryland?

Daily Photoblog: February 20th, 2007

While I was in Key West Florida last week, I would call the Westminster Street Department and Carroll County PIO, Vivian Laxton, W.A.B. as often as possible and raze them that I was in 90-degree weather and they were in temperatures in the single digits.

They were in the ice and the snow at all hours of the night and day, plowing snow and chipping ice and I was sitting on my back balcony strategically positioned with my laptop overlooking the Caribbean Sea.

They vowed to get me back.

Well, they did.

Pictured above is the igloo they made of my house with tons of snow which greeted me upon my arrival late Monday afternoon, February 19th, 2007.

Not to worry. I simply went inside and made a fresh cup of tea, hooked up the laptop and raised my office window just far enough that did not let too much cold air into the house, but my wife could still hear me as I cheered her on - - while she shoveled us out.

Man ole’ man was it hard work watching my wife do all that shoveling. Oh – she was happy to do it. You see, for Valentine’s Day I had purchased her a new snow shovel.

My wife is super. I’ll think I’ll keep her.

As for the Westminster Street Department; oh, I’ll get them back. Journalists in the print media may purchase ink by the barrel, but bloggers have an infinite amount of “ones” and “zeros” at their disposal. And me, I have the ink and the 1s and 0s.

20070216 County responds to major storm



County responds to major storm

Carroll County, Maryland, USA

February 16th, 2007

While I was on the phone with Vivian Laxton, W.A.B., the public information officer for Carroll County; the picture above was my view from my office in Key West.

Ms. Laxton, please enjoy the picture and please know that the wind has picked up down here and the skies have become overcast. So much so that while I was talking with you on the phone, I had to put on a long sleeved shirt.

The bottom photo is from when I was I was talking with the Westminster Police Chief, Jeff Spaulding and Ashley Reams, a reporter with the Westminster Advocate, earlier in the day.

Yeah, I’m thinking of all of ya. We’re roughing it down here – and I know you care. I guess the temperature has dipped to the high 70s.

Anyway, now where was I? Oh, that’s right, the press release from Ms. Laxton, W.A.B., P.I.O. for Carroll County

CARROLL COUNTY a great place to live, a great place to work, a great place to play

News Release

For more information, contact: Vivian D. Laxton, W.A.B., Public Information Administrator.

For Immediate Release

County responds to major storm

http://ccgovernment.carr.org/ccg/releases/stormtotals.pdf

February 15, 2007 - Carroll County's Department of Public Works employees spent approximately 6,160 man-hours clearing 973 miles of county-maintained roads during and after the winter storm that moved through the area Tuesday and Wednesday, February 13-14.

Crews began treating roads at 4 a.m. on Tuesday and continued well into Thursday. One to 3 inches of snow fell during the day Tuesday. Between 7 p.m. Tuesday and 7 a.m. Wednesday, another 6 to 7 inches of sleet fell over much of the county. When rain began to mix with sleet early Wednesday, the sleet soaked up the moisture like a sponge. The extreme weight of the
precipitation made it difficult for plows to move.

With approximately 110 employees clearing 50 snow plow routes, usually streets can be cleared of 6 inches of snow eight hours after the storm ends. Because of the heavy accumulation, the Valentine's Day storm took twice as long to clear. About 2,500 tons of salt were used by county crews. Sixty-two pieces of equipment, including 55 trucks, six motor graders and a rubber tire loader, were utilized by the county and its contractors to plow.

In addition, the county's Department of General Services had crews working from midnight Monday through Thursday to clear ice and sleet from parking lots at Carroll Community College, the Circuit Courthouses, senior centers, libraries, Carroll Area Transit Service, Board of Education, and county offices.

Approximately 51 employees worked to clear the lots and 2+ miles of sidewalks, half a mile of ramps and steps, and 15 trucks and numerous heavy-duty shovels and ice chippers. Two front-end loaders were rented to push the snow off the lots and to clear drains. The Bureau of Fleet Management worked 12-hour shifts to keep county trucks operating, fixing hydraulic lines and pumps, transmissions, rear axles, windshield wipers, and welds on plows.

The Office of Emergency Management continuously monitored conditions throughout the storm. The only major incident reported was a roof collapse at a barn in New Windsor. None of the 25 head of cattle inside was injured.

Because most businesses closed and residents stayed off the roads, the number of traffic accidents was kept to a minimum. Law enforcement agencies reported a total of 70 weather-related incidents through the duration of the storm, not counting in Westminster City.
