    Look Ma, I'm on TV!!

    This morning I had to get up extra early to be on a local morning TV show "Great Day in Des Moines" They contacted me about a month ago about coming on as part of their "Great Art" segment they do each Thursday morning. You might remember I was filmed awhile back to promote a group of shows I part of this summer. Well when the tv show contacted me they asked if I had any video...so I asked the person that did the filming if she would barter making a video of me for a couple of my pieces and she jumped at the chance! I was a bit nervous when they started counting down to go live, but I don't think I stumbled with my words to bad. If you have time the link to my segment is below

    Great exposure Jeff, can I have your autograph? Very nice presentation.
    I'm supposed to respect my elders, but its getting harder and harder for me to find one now.

    You did great! Must be a pretty good local station to devote that long of a segment to a topic. Ours would give you 30 sec. or less. I see you have that beautiful elm bowl front and center on your web page. Very nice job, only thing missing was a plug for Family Woodworking.

    Thanks gusy! Paul, I don't know how many people acutally watch this station...it's probably the #4 or #5 station in town when it comes to news, but pretty much all they do it promote local stuff like concerts, art/craft fairs and local attractions on the morning show. BTW, I also forgot to give a plug to my BIL's store that sells some of my stuff locally too!
