Transcend2010 conceptual public art project in front of a church in University City most of the ladders are borrowed and strapped together with cable ties
its intention is to show how we depend on one another to overcome adversity.
its dedication date of September 11, was chosen as a metaphor about reaching higher, climbing higher over particular obstacles and one of these obstacles is fear.

this person gave a explaination and history of the conflict on "bloody Sunday" and the civil rights movement in Northern Ireland. He was very very interesting.
found a man in a kilt, oh my and another one, my lucky lucky day!
This weekend was the Missouri River Irish Festival in St Charles. Saturday was very hot and Saturday night a storm blew in with heavy lighting, 60 mph winds and hail the size of marbles and heavy rain. I just got home when the storm hit our area. I can't imagine that happened with all the vendors and beer tents! Haven't hear any bad news and that's good
The fair was small this year then in years past
