GERMS


I know this isn't very glamorous but it is amazing how many germs we sneeze and cough out everyday. Especially over our computer keyboards and desks. In fact 20,000 germs per square inch. 400 times more germs than found in the toilet. Not nice eh!
Go to www.ivos.co.uk/germ.htm
and find some more facts.
I reckon a nice pattern of germs would have been a nice take. mmm maybe if I get chance I will splash some paint around and make germs into something artistically interesting

Today the clocks went forward 1 hour and the day is going fast. The sun is shining, a beautiful day, marks Spring and the coming Summer for us Australians. I love this time of year, it inspires to be being busy, planting the vegies, cleaning up and preparing and planning ahead for christmas holidays. In the process of designing some christmas cards to send across the miles, I always leave it to the last minute so trying to get organised now.

Great illustration!!! I have to agree with you being in Australia too there is something about spring that just motivates me so much more, bring on the sunshine!!!

Yikes! Very nice drawing!

yucky facts for a great drawing… I heard in a recent study that the kitchen counter is just about the dirtiest place in your house… it, too, had more germs than the toilet… apparently the toilet is not so bad after all…

thanks for the visit and kind words…

Well, there is nothing attractive about germs. Great way to express the ugliness of it all. I also love your pattern entries as well. Very beautiful.

Yes, glamorous is the word, ha, ha. I like it.
