Neil Armstrong - 1930 to 2012

"As long as there are history books, Neil Armstrong will be included in them," said Charles Bolden. "As we enter this next era of space exploration, we do so standing on the shoulders of Neil Armstrong. We mourn the passing of a friend, fellow astronaut and true American hero."

Rest in Peace

Art Festivals


Summer is the time for Art Festivals all across the country.  We're at a lot of these every year;  we really enjoy it - or frankly we wouldn't do it.

Its also monsoon season in the southwest which can make it really interesting with the high winds.  

NO complaints about the rain though - not from me or most people this year.  The drought has been unbelievable and there are, as of this writing, 70 major wildland fires in 13 western states.  The West is literally burning down. Bring on the rain!

Still adding to the new Gallery.  Lighthouses and Religious works.  Here's a sample:


Two Harbors Lighthouse


Madonna and Child Sassoferrato


That's all for now. Need to go check Accuweather!

Blue Moon

August is a "Blue Moon" month.  Astronomical details aside, its been Blue for us as we've moved locations and gone through a name change.

Having rented our space for G1 Gallery (g1gallery.com) from 3d Cart for three years we just couldn't take it anymore and have moved.  Technical problems we can fix and adapt to but our customers could not check-out.  Now if there's one thing a hosting service should do well it's checkout and they didn't.  Good customers are hard to come by and should have a good experience and be treated well.  We have great customers (and understanding as it turns out) and they deserved better treatment.

So, move we did.  And took the opportunity to change our name and a little of our look. Why change the name? The Canon G1 camera. There is just too much confusion on the search engines.

We are now The Alexander 909 Gallery.

We continue to move works into the new gallery.  The "old" g1gallery.com will get you to the new location until we're done with the set-up.  A name change is coming to Twitter and there will be a new Facebook Fan Page.

The old is out:

Old G1 Gallery Logo

And the new is in:
New Alexander 909 Gallery Logo

That's it for now.  Check the bottom of the Blog for our latest Tweets.
