With 10 days left in the year, and 10 days left in this project I thought I’d bring your attention once again to an incredible artisan, Red Strype of Ufilme Art, and his hand crafted jewelry.

What’s a Cleveland Christmas without something that must be Italian?

While this might look like a nostalgic holiday street scene from a years gone by, but in fact this is one of the often duplicated “Walking Malls” that can be found all over the country.  To think this is what kids today will embrace as their nostalgia, an overly commercialized view of what we grew up taking for granted.

Soon the largest Tesla store will be opening in the Eastern Cleveland suburb of Lyndhurst.  I’m calling it a store because this is a game changer in the auto industry.  A company owned, low pressure sales, custom order cars with speedy delivery is such a unique sales model that Ohio Automobile Dealers Association tried to keep Tesla from opening by passing new laws.  Instead a compromise was reached limiting the number of stores in Ohio to three.  With 57 company reported stores  in September of this year don’t expect to see a Roadster on every block, however with a $70K price point for the Model S, you’ll see more and more in the future.

For those of us that grew up in Jewish communities we take it for granted that everyone understands that Jews do not celebrate religious holiday of Christmas, but instead the miracles of Chanukah.  So, for all my fellow goyish-lonsmen, (consult your local yiddish speaker for the humor reference) here are the miracles of Chanukah.

1. The 2nd century BCE victory of a small, greatly outnumbered and out-armed army of Jews, known as the “Maccabees,” over the mighty Greek army that occupied the Holy Land. The rebellion was in response to the Greek attempt to force a Hellenistic G‑dless lifestyle on the Jewish inhabitants of Israel.

2. The kindling of a seven-branched Menorah (candelabra) was an important component of the daily service in the Holy Temple. When the Maccabees liberated the Temple from the hands of the Greek invaders, they found only a small cruse of pure and undefiled olive oil fit for fueling the Menorah. The problem was, it was sufficient to light the Menorah only for one day, and it would take eight days to produce new pure oil. Miraculously, the oil burned for eight days and nights.

Thank you chabad.org for the clarity of story.

Today I concentrated on working with light and capturing tonality.  Experimentation and understanding of how light interacts with objects while creating shadow and outline both subtle and important.  Granted this is very much art/photography focused and while it seems a little abstract becomes extremely important in portraiture.  It is the deft use of light that makes a good portrait a Great Portrait.

So behold, an egg.

If you wanted a memorable wedding date today was the day to get married.  To most people today was simply December 13, 2014 or for Brian and Pam their wedding day will forever be known as 12/13/14.

Special calendar dates are common for wedding dates for example there was a huge rush to get married on January 1, 2011, 1/1/11 and on November 11 of the same year, 11/11/11.

For those that felt that they missed out on today’s special day, don’t worry, the next sequential day will take place until January 2, 2034, 1/2/34.  If you don’t want to wait that long then consider something like Pi Day, March 14, 2015, 3/14/15, all the math nerds will love your date.
