So I wrote this post a while back then couldn’t get the thing to post at all, then got busy again along with a death in the family and the holidays. And honestly today is the first free day I've had in a while, then it's back to busy for a while.

I did not realize I had been MIA for so long, we've had a busy but all be it productive summer. Home improvement projects abounded not only here but at my mom's also. They seemed to have kept me busy most of the summer and things still don’t seem to be winding down just yet. I'm just hoping now that the jobs are fewer and further between than they have been.

Pictures and projects follow:

A cut for pictures .................... )

Well I am off to paint. (already finished that when LJ and my internet were against me. Even today it took me over an hour to get the photos added. Argh! have no idea what the cause of that was.)

ACTA in a Nutshell –

What is ACTA?  ACTA is the Anti-Counterfeiting Trade Agreement. A new intellectual property enforcement treaty being negotiated by the United States, the European Community, Switzerland, and Japan, with Australia, the Republic of Korea, New Zealand, Mexico, Jordan, Morocco, Singapore, the United Arab Emirates, and Canada recently announcing that they will join in as well.

Why should you care about ACTA? Initial reports indicate that the treaty will have a very broad scope and will involve new tools targeting “Internet distribution and information technology.”

What is the goal of ACTA? Reportedly the goal is to create new legal standards of intellectual property enforcement, as well as increased international cooperation, an example of which would be an increase in information sharing between signatory countries’ law enforcement agencies.
