Summer is a great time to spray paint furniture. I came home from work tonight and my husband had painted all day. I was greeted with a cute gray bench on my porch,
three white chairs in my kitchen, and a great orange chair in my yard ... :)
Joyworks is starting to fill up with many tables and chairs...it's looking good!

Mermaids Do Exist

On July 4,2012 a beautiful Mermaid named Ally was spotted at Priest Point,Washington around 3:00pm.

The question as to whether mermaids are real or not was recently put to rest as a U.S. scientific agency confirmed the sea creatures do not exist.

The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration have confirmed that there is no evidence that the half-human, half-fish beings are a genuine living species.

The agency made a statement last week clarifying that the sea species is not real after they received a few calls following a fictional Animal Planet show called Mermaids: The Body Found that confused some viewers as fact.

After the May airing of the fiction show, designed to have a format similar to a documentary, some viewers had called the NOAA to learn more about the creatures.

The agency released a statement under its Ocean Facts section putting the theories to rest.

The statement goes on to explain how 'magical female figures' were first found in cave paintings roughly 30,000 years ago.

The NOAA put together the statement through information already available to the public because the agency does not have a program dedicated to studying mermaids, spokeswoman Carol Kavanagh told the BBC.
