Today’s post will be short and to the point because I’m sorta beat from a long work week:(  Recently, I heard from my friend & Chicago based filmmaker Kai Duc Luong who’s in Paris for the showing of his latest video installation “De’sincarne’fs(English?-Disembodied/2010 to run from October 7th through November 15th as part of the CARNE exhibit. Here’s the link: http://www.expo.carne.fr/. Kai has so much going on. Here are more links to his awesome works which you can view in French & English:  http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YLWCTR-ejfw&hd=l and French version: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lpMJSMinOr8&hd=l  and http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NsWNabb-Kns&hd=l. Let’s hope you can access these links because at my EYEGLASS angle, those ls are starting to look like Ls …

For all of you creatives who might fancy your words hanging about in some famous, well-known Gallery? Dream no more! The National Gallery of Writing is seeking even more writers to double their content from now through October 20th. Visit www.ncte.org for more information and perhaps, contribute your dynamic writings. ( I contributed in August, no confirmation of being accepted, only notice they’re looking for more writers!)

Ok, enough about that. I call this part of my post a bit of trivia & what I think are a few tall tales:)

I’m a sucker for statistics and for the most part find them believable. However, I’m starting to draw the line between fact and fiction where some of this data is concerned.

It’s reported that nurses, doctors and hotel workers are the group of professionals who consume more coffee than any other group of  folks in the workplace. ( yea, right)

The city who top the charts for cleanliness in hand washing is Chicago, Illinois and  it’s estimated that more women than men wash their hands after using public facilities! 

Due to rains, Australia has a Locust invasion-

Kids in some schools have to get fingerprinted in the cafeteria before eating!

The television drama The Good Wife is based upon former Governor Alex Spitzer’s affair with a call girl

Good Morning America is looking to add an “Advice Guru” to  their ABC News lineup. Will the next Ann Landers please visit abcnews.com/advice guru? You have until 2011 to get your bid in.

Because Clara54 fancies herself a poet, she was recently published here : http://www.femmevip.com/thepurplelounge.htm

Last for today, but certainly not least, I have to thank all of those who visit Clara54 . Because of you, my stats continue to rise & my twitter connection of  friends/creatives/entrepreneurs/solopreneurs are growing…So Godspeed & let’s make some noise!
