Be a Guest Artist on our little page.(right here)

All artists--emerged, emerging and submerged-- are encouraged to show images of their work on our page, and to sell it through us. Artists need not feel compelled to have their works' images reproduced for use on greeting cards, and may choose to show only.

Poets are also welcome to join us in creating memorable note cards, or simply to have us publish a piece in ourHisses, Purrs, and IdSpills© section (bottom of order/contact form page). We like poetry very much. Richard, who writes a few poems every decade or so, has been published by small presses including the no longer extant literary quarterlies Onionhead (Florida State University) and Echoes (Hudson Valley Writers Association). So, tap your id gently ormit gewalt, and write something fresh, or release the well-aged studies you've imprisoned in a box for too long, and share them with us. OK?

If you see Richard, run the other way!

He'll try to take your picture. I don't know that he has anything else with which to occupy his time. It's sad, really.

If you see Richard, run the other way!

want a tip on cat litter?

This is truly wonderful stuff. In all the years I've used

cat litter, I've found Blue Buffalo to be the best.

I'm particularly fond

of the unscented Multi-Cat formula.

So, go nuts for your cats!
