The other way to get a good price on a tree is to get it a day, or two before Christmas and do not go for the best three on the lot. The magic happen when you get it home.

My questions are:
Would this be something that DORS/DVR would fund, since he trying to get a career back?
Would he be more successful, if he applied for artist grants?
What other type of grants could he apply for?
Organizations that Assist Artists with Disabilities
Grants for Artists With Disabilities
Mid Atlantic Arts Foundation supports multiple funding programs. For the sake of organization, those programs are broken down into four program areas:

I do not know all of the details that went on between Tom Kiefaber and Baltimore City. I do know at the end the actions of the City were disgusting and shameful. They just ripped the soul out of Tom and the Senator, so I cannot and will not go back to building!
If you think about snow is the closest thing to simulating a disability, because anybody can end up on their ass. This might be sadistic, when we would go to school late due to ice. On the bus I would laugh at people as they fall walked to their cars and bus stops.
Dan 1 : Zarah 1
Zarah and I were upstairs looking out the window into space and she must had heard Brooke moving around in her room. So Zarah barked and my hand flew up popping myself in the lip. I gave myself a nice little bloody fat lip!!
Damn C.P. grip, Zarah was giving me some love on my hands. She happened to be licking the wrong hand when it decided to close around her tongue, talk about a high pitch yelp. She walked away not to look at me, but we are over it now.
RT @EasyStand: Choosing good (and bad) PCAs @TiffCarlson. I always thought that disable people need to develop a sixth sense when it comes to trusting people, especially when it comes to PCAs. They are trusted with every aspect of one's life from banking to being intimate. In my case this skill was developed at an early age and has fine tuned. Maybe that is why I can paint portraits so well, but I tell when other gimps do not have this skill to read people. I really get scared for them, because the wrong PCA could really take advanage of this.
RT @DisInsight: Disability Insight: Caregiver "Scholarship". I think this is a good idea. Instead of it being for a spouse to go re-charge in a hotel, the "Scholarship" would be better for parents of a disabled child and a sitter the child. I do not think Wifey would want to go relax at an hotel and leave me at home. We would rather be romantic at the hotel, that type of a recharge every couple needs.
I am sure that I'm amongst the money who got a notice that I got a "raise" in my SSI. Happy, happy, happy, that was short lived. Wifey and I went to the market and realized why I got an increased. The food prices also went up, I recog that is why it is call a living wage adjustment!!!
The new laundry detergent pods are great for the disabled. I wonder how much of a CP grip it would take to pop one of the pods. CP grip: when one cannot let go of an item and the more we try to let go, the tighter the grip gets.
When things/places are not accessible, I end up braking shit!!! :(:):(:)!!!!! Just ask Jennifer Toroni-Rodgers and Dale, I knock their clock of the wall a crack it. They made it into a positive by putting a note the King was here.
So we have mice problem and we but out those sticky traps since we are dirty hippies. This morning I am in the bathroom disrobing and my toe get caught in the trap, it was really like the cartoon. I shook my foot, it got stuck on top of foot. I tried to kick it off with my other foot, the trap went to that foot. I finally use the toilet to pull it off. When Wifey came up the trap was stuck to the toilet and I had all over my feet. Wifey had to clean my feet with nail polish remover.
Wow, 1st time for everything! A gimp get called on the Price is Right and he got on stage via ramp. Though the ushers kept trying to push him, when he could push his self. If you find your self in this situation, it never hurts to ask.
Wifey think @JoshBlueComedy walks and I crawl like Mr. Snuffleupagus. Next time Josh and I get together, we might need to make a video of that.
When violators in gimp parking spaces for 2 mins. I want to ask, if I could kiss them for 2 mins.

I feel no matter how far you take a computer in the direction of art, it will never be like the really thing. Blake might have been better off by working with Close to see if this was a direction Close wanted to work in. I do not see it as a copy right issue, I am coming from an artistic purest view. if Blake did this as an artist, it does not make the work his. Blake's own voice is not in the work and for the rest of time he would be compared to Chuck Close.
I am sure, I would by a bit peed if a computer could copy my style and texture of painting because that is what makes mine. A computer piece is not going to have the charm of clumps of paint falling off as it has on the wall. When I took digital art classes, my professors would say use at least a few filter, so people can't tell what ones you used. I guest if society wants all women to look the same why not art?

Thank you everyone for supporting me and my artwork and all my art forms! I am doing a fundraiser to raise money for a new accessible van. My van is 17 years old now and it is my only way to get out and about. My chair is pretty awesome but too big to throw in the backseat and go out. For the first time ever, I'm offering a personal portrait painted by me. This is the first fundraiser of many. All you have to do is go online or see me in person and buy as many tickets as you can and help me sell as many as you can. I have 600 tickets to sell for a painting valued at $600 or more. Please help me out and you could win your very own personal portrait. Tickets are $1. You can view my previous artwork on my website www.robertflorio.com or on my facebook artwork page. You can purchase them through my paypal account and the links below.
Thank you all very much!
BUY TICKETS HERE
PS: I hope to be selling them at Artworks Tattoo too and the winner will be announced as soon as I sell all 600 raffle tickets or August 30th. Don't wait to buy them! First come first served.
Please share this with your friends!

For the show rooms we are painting the walls and floors. My nephew Zack just had to paint the walls, but the floors are a different story and I even participated in this process. Our friends the Greco helped us take up the carpet and padding. There were so many staples in the floor, that I crapped and screwdriver and started popping staples. I was just using a screwdriver, where as the Grecos also used pliers to pull their staples.
As some of you know we have been going to Parson’s Auction CO., it is a family run business and come to find out they used to run their construction CO. This week Brooks a Brian have been preparing the wood floors to be painted. I have been at the new place since Sunday sanding the edges of the floors. Tomorrow we are starting to prime and put the base color on the floors. Wifey just ordered a stencil to put on the floors.

1.Do you feel someone who does not know you or your story overlooks/stereotypes what is genuinely there? What is going on in your head when this happens?
