Fur-eSports ASCII Logo

furesports1Here is the logo I have finished working on for Fur-eSports.

Below are some trial and error versions I had this morning.

I’m working on a logo for Fur-eSports but so far my “e” looks more like a basket of fruit than a paw print. I gave up on having it to the side. The toes just won’t work. Unless someone has a great diddle/ tweak. I’m going for a coffee break and see if I come back with fresh inspiration.

Candy Cane Vase with Roses

Materials Required:
Cylindrical vase or clean empty can
Two sided tape (found at most hardware or scrapbooking stores)
Rubber band
Candy canes
Wide ribbon (must be wider than rubber band)
Roses

Instructions:
Wrap the two sided tape around the vase/can once approximately halfway down the vase/can. (The two sided tape will help keep the candy canes from sliding out from under the rubber band.)
Slide rubber band around the vase/can.
Begin inserting the candy cans behind the rubber band.
Tie the ribbon around the vase/can taking care to cover the rubber band with the ribbon.
Fill with water and arrange roses.
Another “Bride Idea”: Use mini candy canes and baby food jars or small fruit cup cans to create small individual vases which can serve as place cards. Just attach a label with your guests’ names to the ribbon.

Found Quotations

“Getting ahead in a difficult profession requires avid faith in yourself. You must be able to sustain yourself against staggering blows. There is no code of conduct to help beginners. That is why some people with mediocre talent, but with great inner drive, go much further than people with vastly superior talent.” – Sophia Loren

“When you are inspired by some great purpose, some extraordinary project, all your thoughts break their bounds. Dormant forces, faculties and talents become alive, and you discover yourself to be a greater person by far than you ever dreamed yourself to be.” – Patanjali

“One characteristic of winners is they always look upon themselves as a do it yourself project.” – Denis Waitley

“Everything you are against weakens you. Everything you are for empowers you.” – Wayne Dyer

“Make every thought, every fact, that comes into your mind pay you a profit. Make it work and produce for you. Think of things not as they are but as they might be. Don’t merely dream — but create!  –  Robert Collier

“Thought is the blossom; language the bud; action the fruit behind it.” – Ralph Waldo Emerson

“Enjoyment is not a goal, it is a feeling that accompanies important ongoing activity.” – Paul Goodman

“When you cannot make up your mind which of two evenly balanced courses of action you should take – choose the bolder.” – W.J. Slim

I found these quotes with some ASCII art on an old Tripod personal site. It even had two of my own ASCII art pictures, but my initials were gone.

Spicy Warm Pineapple Watermelon Salad Recipe : Robert Irvine : Food Network

Spicy Warm Pineapple Watermelon Salad Recipe : Robert Irvine : Food Network

Ingredients
1 red onion, diced
3 cloves garlic, chopped
1 tablespoon sugar
2 cups diced pineapple
1/2 cup medium watermelon chunks
1/2 cup rice wine vinegar
Salt
Chopped fresh mint leaves, for serving
Crumbled goat cheese, for serving
Directions
Saute the onion and garlic together over low heat, in a medium saucepan, being careful not to burn the garlic. Add the sugar and let it dissolve until almost caramelized. Stir in the pineapple, watermelon, and vinegar and allow to cook until the fruit is coated with the liquid in the pan, about 2 to 3 minutes. Season with salt, to taste, and serve with chopped mint and goat cheese.

I just saw this being made on the show. There were strawberries in it on the show. Maybe strawberries were substituted for pineapple. Too bad they don’t mention that. Anyway, it sounded good. I wouldn’t make it spicy but that’s my taste.
