Thoughts, adventures, projects, and photography by Shawn DeArmond

Blue Dasher Perched on Flower, Yolo County Fair 2008

August 23, 2008 - 2:34pm -- Shawn

This was probably my favorite photo that I entered into the 2008 Yolo County Fair. This one was a sure thing; my golden ticket. This one was definitely going to win me a blue ribbon. It's my best category, after all: "Nature, wild".

Unfortunately, I submitted my entry form at the last minute, late late at night, and my eyes were not lining up the table rows in the class descriptions. I accidentally wrote down the number for the "Abstract" category. It doesn't exactly fit that description, don't you think? Well the judges didn't think so either, so it won nothing. Bummer.

Fortunately, I entered several other photos, and even ended up winning a couple blue ribbons. All in all, I'm pleased with the outcome, and I walked away with my winnings of $12. It cost me about $200 and ten hours to print and frame all these photos. Not a good business model, I suppose. Of course that's not really the point. This was a great excuse for me to get some of my photos framed, something I haven't done in years. Next year, I'll read the directions a little better, and double-check my entry form.

I forwarded your email address to the maker, but he is a new father and going to school full-time, so he doesn't have much time for guitar making anymore. If he didn't respond it's probably because he's out of the guitar business.

Good explanation of Jazzbox contain this article. I got a lot of valuable points from this article and no any other article have such information about JazzBox. So, we can say that you wrote almost A to Z content related to Jazzbox which is good for me because i want to know about it.

Hi,

Thanks for this beautiful post, I wanted to know which on is better Magento or Drupal for an e-commerce website in terms of easy to use, maintain, develop and control.
We have developed our website in Magento (https://www.indusuno.com/about-us/) and facing some issue with our SEO tags.
Anyone kindly suggests and let me know the proper solutions.
I'll be greatly thankful to you.

I'm pleased with the outcome, and I walked away with my winnings of $12. It cost me about $200 and ten hours to print and frame all these photos. Not a good business model, I suppose. Of course that's not really the point.
