For Christian American readers of this blog:

I wish to incite all Christians to rise up and take back the United States of America with all of God's manifold blessings. We want the free allowance of the Bible and prayers allowed again in schools, halls of justice, and all governing bodies. We don't seek a theocracy until Jesus returns to earth because all men are weak and power corrupts the very best of them.
We want to be a kinder and gentler people without slavery or condescension to any.

The world seems to be in a time of discontent among the populace. Christians should not fear. God is Love, shown best through Jesus Christ. God is still in control. All Glory to our Creator and to our God!

A favorite quote from my good friend, Jack Plymale, which I appreciate:

"Wars are planned by old men,in council rooms apart. They plan for greater armament, they map the battle chart, but: where sightless eyes stare out, beyond life's vanished joys, I've noticed,somehow, all the dead and mamed are hardly more than boys(Grantland Rice per our mutual friend, Sarah Rapp)."

Thanks Jack!

I must admit that I do not check authenticity of my posts. If anyone can tell me of a non-biased arbitrator, I will attempt to do so more regularly. I know of no such arbitrator for the internet.

Karl Jara's sand sculptures ... Thx Sarah R and Jack H ! (PHS 40x's each) Portsmouth Ohio


Worrying is like a rocking chair it gives you something to do but doesn't get you anywhere.  

These are fabulous…so sad it is sand and will not remain in view to the public......

Jara's sculptures are more about abstraction than creating things that reflect marine life.

He's earned nine World Championship medals for his sand sculptures, and it's not difficult to see why.

His work is incredibly unusual, and it's also a little subversive for your average sandcastle competition.

His work is so smooth and refined that you almost forget that what you're looking at is sand, instead of wood or marble.

Jara studied fine art in college, but soon realized that design was not his strong suit. Instead, he wanted to create with his hands, and sand is the perfect medium.

The response to his work has been nothing but positive, and Jara has no plans to stop.
