Photo Post 7.27.11 (Cow Parade Austin)

I got to check out the amazing cows done by some local Austin artists for Cow Parade Austin.  CowParade Austin is proud to partner with the City of Austin and the Children’s Medical Center Foundation to benefit Dell Children’s Medical Center of Central Texas and Superhero Kids Fund.  You can go see them right now at the Long Center (not sure how long they will be there).  I got to photograph almost all the cows, but I realized I missed one of my friends cows!  I have them all posted on my Facebook page (and will add my friends cow when I get the photo! 🙂 )

Here’s a few of them!

Daily Photo 3.28.10 (Long Center)

Yes, I am sort of cheating.  I took this photo a couple of days ago, but I really like them so I thought I would post them.  I had a crazy busy weekend, so I a going back to previously taken photos. 🙂

There must have been an event going on since they had the Long Center lit up in pink.  I love the color of the pink with the blue sky!

Daily Photo 2.26.10 (CNN Express in Austin!)

Yes, the CNN Express Bus in here in Austin, apparently doing a story about Austin and the economy.  According to CNN’s Tom Foreman, “some analysts are saying Austin, Texas, may be a national leader in economic recovery” http://ow.ly/1bqKG

Well, I know too many people that have lost their jobs or can’t live in their homes anymore.  Some may not be un-employed, but sure are UNDER-employed.  It does not mean that you can afford to live here.  I personally am tired of struggling myself.  It’s just so hard I can’t stand it sometimes!  So I want to know, if we are going to be a leader in the national economic recovery, will the new companies hire the people that lost their jobs during the last 10 years?  Or are they just going to hire new/straight from college workers, with no experience, that they can pay almost nothing to.  Or are they going to bring workers from wherever they came from.  Just to let you know, between all the high-tech employers that have laid off workers in Austin the last 10 years or so, there is a pool of incredible, talented workers, that have given up on finding a decent paying job and are working for minimum wage just to get by.  They are engineers, technicians, etc. with years of experience.  Think about them first and give them a chance, before looking elsewhere.
