I decided to open a store on Ruby Lane again. Ever checked it out. Go to www.rubylane.com That is where I used to sell around 3 years ago. I keep saying I am going to stop but I love the hunt. I love going to auctions and finding something neat that I know will sell. I love making a profit. Plus I love pottery and this way I can afford to buy the stuff I like and sell the rest. I started the gears in motion, now just have to see if I am approved. I forgot they did that. They have you list 10 items and then they decide if your store will fit in. If I had remembered that I would have made sure to list my best stuff first. I am also going to look for a partner. Someone who will share costs and someone to go to different auctions then me so we can hit them all. Rick goes but hates auctions and will usually sit in the car. He does like my pottery though.
What I like about Ruby Lane is they don't allow fakes of any kinds. The other stores police each other and if you start selling reproductions they are on you right away. That is what was so bad about Ebay. So many fakes. It makes it bad for everyone and Ebay doesn't do anything about it especially if they sell alot and make them money. It is all about the stock holders with Ebay.
So that is what I did all day. Take pictures and get ready to list everything. That is so time consuming. Once I get them all in then I just list as I get new items. But starting it up is so slow. Plus I have to make a store logo and I am so bad at that. Come on you clever graphic artists. I need something that says, Julia's Midwest Vintage. Really vintage and cool looking. I could pay you with smiles. So keep your fingers crossed they approve me. It takes as long as 5 days.
The weather was warm today, 35 and I was in all day. I did my knee exercises 3 times like a good patient and then spent the entire day taking pictures. Now it is late and I am wide awake. What to do. Suduko. My son bought me a new gameboy game of Suduko so I think I will play that and fall asleep.
I am already so sick and tired of hearing the politicians talks. 2 years we have to listen to this. Yikes, I may go mad.

I decided to put this on the bottom so you can just click off if you don't want to read. This is about work. We have a no smoking hospital. Last year they made it law you have to be 200 feet away from the hospital. Now I don't smoke anymore, but I don't feel it should be state or city mandated where you can or can't smoke. Just my opinion. We get very stressed out family members and I for one am not going to tell them they have to go across the street 200 ft away to smoke. Most people have been still smoking outside the hospital.
Well my hospital which doesn't seem to be able to staff us half the time has hired off duty police officers to campus the grounds and ticket anyone smoking outside where they are not suppose to be smoking. PPPPLLLEEEAAAASSSSEEEEE. Don't we have much better things to spend out money on? They are always on us to cut costs, budget- budget- budget and then this. Sorry but it gets to me. So that is my rant.
We have people running red lights all the time, some of the worse drivers you have ever seen. You have to go to the police department to fill out a accident report or robbery report, but we can ticket people for smoking. We can't catch the man that hit and ran and killed a 4 year old last year, but by God we can get those darn smokers. Where are our priorities? Has the entire world gone MAD? And on that note.......
