AAAD is rapidly approaching our 5th Anniversary (on 9/12).  And I have contemplated how to celebrate how far we’ve come.  It isn’t cake or chocolate sundaes I crave, but community–for you. Our readership has exploded over the years, and I receive unbelievable amounts of wonderful email from you.  But, I would like to see you participate HERE.  Tell each other which opportunities, galleries & competitions.  Tell each other what works, what doesn’t.  Share this site with your friends by liking & sharing our Facebook & Twitter posts.  Share our site with a new artist & help them find the opportunities you have found through AAAD.  That would be the cherry on my celebratory sundae.  Take action to create community HERE, today.  And, don’t forget to help celebrate another anniversary with this next call too.  Take a look…

CUCURBITA

Squash is yellow in my house.  If I ask, “do you want squash with dinner”, I mean the yellow, long-neck variety of summer squash.  If I want acorn, spaghetti or zucchini squash I will ask for it.  My family believes that it is politically incorrect, but I don’t think the squash are offended.  Someone let me know if they enter this next Call.  Take a look…

TAMALE

Apparently, I’m a hot tomato.  Yep.  I have a friend from Honduras for whom English is a 3rd language.  And she likes to call me a hot tomato.  She uses it in reference to my writing and singing style, and I’ve decided to take it as a compliment.  The first few times I heard it, I gently reminded her that she meant ‘tamale’ not ‘tomato’.  But eventually, I came to think she may be right.  I look good in red. I am occasionally rounder than other times.  My insides are squishy, but the contents vary from sweet to acid–determined by environment.  This next Call is looking for all thinks tomato–apparently including me.  Love this theme…

HAD A COW

Have you heard about the cannulated cows?  Wow.  Who knew there were cows with port holes?  I was watching the Wisconsin edition of Weird Foods America.  And a professor at UW-Madison Department of Dairy Science was explaining how they put port holes in the side of cows to study the “ruminant’s digestive process” or the chewing of the cud aka “ruminating.”  Into my miscellaneous food trivia file THAT tidbit went; THEN, I received this Call from Ruminate Magazine.  Funny how things work out…
