Fox News Tampa Bay!

Yesterday was the day!  Fox News broadcasted live from Painting with Fire Studio!  Let me tell you a little bit about it. We were told to get to the building at 5:45 am.  We arrived at 5:43 am and the Fox News van with a mast that looked like it belonged on a sailboat was already in our parking lot!  I mean, it was still nighttime! 

Sonon, the technician, was very friendly.  He had an interesting background.  He's from Turkey and he was once a small business owner.  He created specialized amps (for guitars, etc.) made with vacuum tubes.  He was doing well until China decided to produce them  and undercut his prices. With the economy suffering, he closed his business.  When I told my son about Sonon and his amps, he said they were expensive but "the real deal."  Such is life.  

Anyway, back to our story. We opened the shop and Sonon started setting up his technical stuff.  I started feeling nervous!  At 6:30 am, Charley Belcher, the much-loved three-time Emmy winner, arrived with Jason, the cameraman.  I got more nervous!  This is LIVE broadcasting.  What would happen if I fainted, besides the fact I'd be lying on the floor?




From 6:30 am until 7:50 am, Charley broadcasts teasers about being at Painting with Fire Studio and how he's going to make glass jewelry.  These teasers are interspersed among the serious news of the day.  

At 7:50 am, lights, camera, action!  I'm live!  But, I'm no longer nervous because I've had 1 hr, 20 minutes with Charley and Jason, who are incredibly warm and fuzzy people.  Charley's just a little kid in grown-up clothing!  A talented little kid, though.  He's a natural in front of the camera. Jason's camera shots are the bomb.  You can see what I mean here.  




So, 4 three-minute segments are broadcast live, along with a number of teasers.  The first is an interview in the retail/gallery area. I show metal beads, enamel beads and enamel.  I talk about how I got involved.

The next segment is Charley enameling a bead!  He's a natural.  Segment 3 is Charley and me creating a fantasy floral dangle that had already been enameled by me, but which we're now assembling.  Charley calls "seed beads" "beady things".  You have this big teddy bear of a guy picking up seed beads and placing them on a head pin!  

The last segment was Linda, Jane, and Charleen enameling and doing a show 'n tell.  This was followed by a videotaped interview that they aired at noon.  I have to tell you that it was an amazing experience and incredibly fun.  It could have been a disaster, but Charley is so adept at putting you at ease and Jason is an incredible cameraman!  

I have a lot of people to thank, not the least of whom is my daughter, who got the ball rolling and kept it going in a straight line.  She's all too familiar with her mother who has a Ph.D. in Sidetrackology! My son, David, who helped keep the mood light in the studio by engaging in sports banter with Charley. My husband, Jim, who's responsible for establishing such a strong connection with Keep Saint Petersburg Local (KSPL). Olga, KSPL's fearless leader, who gave us the idea to contact Charley and provided his contact information.  


Charleen, Jane, and Linda, who were so generous with their time and came out early to support me by demonstrating the torch-firing process and showing off their wonderful work.  

Gary Mayfield of Mayster's Cafe, who provided some yummy muffins and coffee for the crew. 

I'd like to give a special thanks to Linda and Rachel who minded the store while we decompressed at the end of it all!  

Thanks to all the many people who look out for me. I've been blessed!  <><

First off I want to say excellent blog! I had a quick question which I'd like to ask if you don't mind.
I was curious to know how you center yourself and clear your thoughts before writing.
I've had a difficult time clearing my mind in getting my ideas out there. I do take pleasure in writing but it just seems like the first 10 to 15 minutes tend to be lost simply just trying to figure out how to begin. Any recommendations or hints? Cheers!

http://dwightbran.insanejournal.com/645.html Some researchers have suggested that meditation may have started back in the time of hunter and gatherer where they entered into a meditative state while staring at the flickering flames of the fire. However, most developed meditation practices have their roots in Eastern religious practices. Buddha who is often associated with meditation made his mark around 500 BC. Meditation became more popular in the United States in the 60s and 70s as researchers began testing the benefits of the practice.
