                   "Up-Date 3-6-09"

          Good morning! Let's have some coffie, vid some 'toons & take a peek at our

 busy schedule.

 First on our agenda is to mark the the retirement of our CEO & life coach of creative

 dogma, SPARKY  Begining as a team member April 13th, 07 he has since through his 

 Yeoman efforts, & patient ways helped set the pace, & vison that has become the

 standard for "O.H.Inc." when we  opened the following April.

            Starting in the "Wheel room" Sparky began moving his way up with such ideas as;

 "Well, try it." the classic; "see if that works",  his witt will be missed.

Next on the board is the word on our 1st wave of miniatures & figurines  available this

 spring We've re-worked the original "Palace relief" this, was originally created from a

 wax model used in the realization of the "Hero" Model of the Palace Depression on display

 in the 1st fr display case in Vineland's City Hall,

(see image gallery for album) the other mini will be "Daynor's ticket booth" the Palace

 ticket booth, as it was "Back in the Day", complete with turn-stile, & spires, these will also

 be hand-painted, (by the resident artist, of our respective collectives) make each piece

 it's own unique vision of the palace, We will be presenting these & other examples of our

 skills at the "P.D.R.P"fundraiser this March,( check Palace up-dates page

for details) & the image gallery for "Our Hero" for the latest pre-production image of

 these & then-some.

  Next up, We have posted in the  Gallery, a collection of photography by Jeffrey Tirante

 With an "Artist's statement" pending ( won't bore you here!) in the PHOTONIC Gallery,

                         Briefly,  I'M feelin' nostalgic ,  having said that, We present

                                  "An Existent Light" 20+ years of Philadelphia

 through Art & Journalisim,  Please note, There are nudes in this collection, so it's your call,

 other wise I hope you folk will enjoy show, ( while I work on some kinda frackin' thing

 called an Artist's Statement !)
