My Favorite “Scrappy” Cat!

There are so many artists that twist scrap metal in to works of art. Everyone has a favorite. Sometimes it is hard to decide if you have a favorite “Scrappy” piece f art. I thought very carefully and I think this Scrappy Cat is probably my favorite piece. I always smile when I see it. And, sometimes look for it.

I like the scrawny version of this stick cat. Bewildered and a bit frightened. It reminds me of me. Below is the “Sleepy” cat. Kind of looks like Garfield’s cousin. They are both adorable.

What about real kitty cats? They move around, play and need to be fed with love and tins of tuna. Cats do love fish!!!! I recently found out that even dogs like to eat fish. Especially if you have a sick dog. Fish works.

Everyone has or likes a favorite cat, dog or pet iguana. You may have once had a pet that keeps your fond memories intact. I must admit there are those that do not like any kind of animals. Me, I’m especially fond of cats. I like dogs too. I grew up with kittens in our family. It’s just nice to have one in the house. Not so lonely when your cat (or dog) is there with you.

The Next Super Power?

WHAT DETERMINES A SUPER POWER?

Solar Powered car in India, courtesy of planet.com

WORLD TRADE: NATURAL RESOURCES: Lots of speculation for the next 30 years about who will be the super powers of the future. Back in time, salt was a form of currency. Spices and even chocolate were used to ‘trade’. We use dollar bills (& plastic cards) to trade for gas for our cars, food and other essentials (and non-essentials). In reality, oil seems to be the modern currency. California is supposed to be going all-electric for their cars by 2040; in order to reduce the oil consumption. The gas shortage will probably shock some people because they did not plan for the future. If history has taught us anything, countries with natural resources can ‘trade’ for items to become a super powerful country. As Spock would say, “It is only logical,” that Brazil, China, India and Russia will be the emerging powers in 30-50 years. Some economists believe that China will somehow make an alliance with Russia. Brazil is in a continent to themselves and does not have close boarders with any major countries.  Have we forgotten Nigeria, rich in resources and the deserts and oil fields of Africa are important. Arabs are fighting amongst themselves so much it is hard to believe that their nation will play well with others. So far they are not good players, even though Abu Dabi is a rich, golden capital of the world. True leaders have a country that thinks the same and builds their nation like a good family. Here is a real surprise for some of you.

INDIA-THE NEXT SUPER POWER!

Some economists believe that INDIA will be the number one super power in the world. I read it and had a hard time getting my head around it. I’m thinking solar power. They have the best chance to embrace solar energy since that their climate is ideal. Dry and sunny. Not an abundance of clouds dimming the bright sun. I can not think of how it would happen. They may be a country that is well oiled with responsibility for each other. India does not have any religious zealots that would make any empire crumble.

Population growth will demand more food and put a strain on the land. Unless we start changing ourselves, our lives will start to suffer. We need to take better care of our lives, our country and our people as a whole. If not, we may walk into disastrous situations. Good planning makes a difference.

SCRAP METAL INDUSTRY
At first, we see how China began to dominate the scrap metal industry 3 years ago.  Even though China remains strong, other countries are getting noticed as emerging super powers. India has supported the scrap metal industry with imports from North America. Shiploads of processed scrap metal have ensured a good flow of resources to India. In saying that, the Indian government are encouraging their citizens to buy and process from their own country. Higher tariffs are discouraging imports. India is beginning to be more self-sufficient.

Slightly falling Scrap Prices this summer 2018

President Trump is trying to do the same thing in the States. Being self sufficient is good. But, you still need to trade with the world. It will be interesting to see what happens in India. The future is not certain. But, we can make a good guess as to the direction each country is taking to secure a good life for their people. Scrap prices will change. They always do. That’s something that will never change.

A Kid’s Tire Park

We have gone far beyond the tire swing.Let’s see what parks are doing now to conserve the environment.

Cheerful Bright coloured Tires

Its all up to your imagination. Safe, fun, ‘re-purposed’ tires.the possibilities are endless. Some teeter totter’s use two half tires.  the seated portion is made smaller.

The tire teeter totters might be for daycare or private backyard only

How about a car. This one’s not going anywhere. But, it’s a bit of fun.

Car Power

What about a game of  Tic-tac-toe? You can use neon paint. They don’t have to be bugs. How about fruit with funny faces? Or maybe funny faces.

Tic Tac Toe Game

For this game, the opposing side can be blue or green faces. Whatever your heart desires.

Scrap Tires-Out of Control

SCRAP TIRE GRAVEYARD: North Africa, we see satellite pictures of acres of desert land covered with acres of old tires. Imagine all the useful items to be made from old tires. The possibilities are vast. I’m guessing the tire piles – all got away from them.

Visible: An aerial image shows the vast amount of used tyres that are put in the ground – the patches are even visible from space

If they try burning the tires, the fires burn black, billowy smoke for months not to say how the environment is being polluted. Old tires can be made into floor tiles, roofing and so much more.

A sea of rubber: In Kuwait City’s Sulaibiya area every year gigantic holes are dug out in the sandy earth and filled with old tyres – there are now over seven million in the ground.

DIY Car Detailing

While the winter blahs are almost behind us, start thinking about the best way to clean your car. There are so many great ideas for keeping your car clean using simple tricks and techniques. Let’s get started with silly putty. Press it into grooves of your car to get that stubborn dirt out.
How brilliant is that?

Cleaning your headlights with toothpaste is genius! In this second video,  you will see the tennis ball parking tip again. But there are as few more ideas that are valuable.

A Feng Shui car cleaning tip is to put course salt on the car floor mats in your back seat area. It absorbs odors. Vacuum it up a few weeks later. Hang something blue or a symbol of water on the rear view mirror. It symbolizes a good flow of energy. Feng Shui maintains that your car should be clean at all times to encourage good energy and vitality for you and your passengers.

High Performance Additives: gas and oil cleaners

ADDITIVES: GAS AND OIL

Liquid Gold: Injection Cleaner

Gas additives clean out your gas tank. The same applies to your oil reserve. Good oil and gas go a long way in keeping your engine purring like a kitten. You really do not need gas or oil additives for new cars. When your car warranty has expired you might want to use some additive every 2-3 months. Perhaps every 6 months, if you don’t drive a lot. Some schools of thought discourage additives. Oil additive will have added detergents and basically the same oil that is already in the car. The oil coats the detergent as it flows into your car. How much of this elixir do you need? One oil additive chemist has proven improvements using an additive. Now, all additives are not alike. So buyer beware. Get ‘good’ expert advice.

Oil Additive at Work

FILL HER UP! In your gas tank, you will always have residue that has settled to the bottom from impure gas. If you are driving too close to empty, you car starts to pick up sediment. The ‘BAD’ gas is not good for your car’s engine.

FIX THAT LEAK! This is a great segue (segway) into car leaks. Be it oil, brake fluid or other leaks. This video helps you identify the leak and what is needed to fix the leak. Exceptionally well done video! A must…to view! Here are some great ideas from fixcarleaks.org.

Some gas station will have a leak in their reserve tank and need to replace it, The ground sediment is seeping into the cracked reservoir. How do you know this? You car is sputtering as you drive just after a fill up at the gas station.  An old car like my Chevy Caprice will let you know. I noticed right away that my car was running somewhat rough and sluggish. The flags went up. I had just filled up at the XXX gas station.  I stopped buying gas there, even though I passed by their pumps every morning. I suspect they do periodic inspections of the gas station’s reservoir. None to soon for that place.  10 months later, a construction crew was replacing the reservoir tank at that location. I was wondering when they would wise up. If I said anything, I knew they would blame my car. That’s how it goes.

A Classic Old Gas Station

You should always have a minimum of 1/2 tank of gas. It’s a good rule to follow. You are picking up the dregs or sediment found in your gas, causing your car to choke and sputter when riding on  a 1/4 tank of gas or less.  Some old gas tanks may develop rust from the salted roads and frankly old cars in general will spurt at the seams. Holes and leaks start appearing over time. With older cars, look for ‘liquid’ spots on you driveway. It could be an oil leak, gas leak or even transmission fluid leak. A pinkish colour will be your transmission fluid leaking.

Spend 5 minutes and watch this video on how to Diagnose your LEAKS. It’s very good!  www.autoblog.com It will save you $$$.

TIME TO BUY A NEW CAR

Transmission: Stops Slip

TRANSMISSION Fluid does not have to be changed often. Some people say the transmission will fail at around 140,0000 miles. Rebuilding a tranny costs $3,000 – $5,000. Transmissions are designed to operate at high temperatures, but consistent overheating can break down the fluid. City driving especially increases wear and tear on your car. My dad would say that when the transmission fluid overheats ‘a lot’, it was the beginning of the end”. He would buy a new car without a second thought. Transmission over heating is one of the worst things to happen to your car.

Re-Purposed Scrap Metal

Inner Tube Hammock

Recycle to Re-purpose
We started with recycling in the 80’s. It was replaced by “up”cycling. Now another catch phrase has replace the recycling world. “Re-purposing” has taken the lead. What next? Smart-shoes (recycled rubber sandals). Smart floors for shredded rubber tiles in the kitchen, bathroom, den and outdoors. We do have smart cars. But, the recycled metal in all cars (25%-30%) is never talked about. I can’t imagine what they will be calling used material-transformed into useful products in the next 10 years.
RE-PURPOSED ARTISTS
If I twist, turn and burn metals into sculptures, would I be called a re-purposed artist. Perhaps its true. Taking a look at it, all artists are re-purposed artist.

Kevin Caron Studios, Arizona.

Michael Angelo carved a clump of marble into a statue. Was he re-purposing big stones? The term re-purposing is really used for something we manufactured or made and used it “again” to make something else. A marble statue would never be “re-purposed”. It would only be turned into rubble or small stones.  One thing nice is that marble does last the test of time. Cars will disintegrate (rust), get crushed or broken down in traffic accidents.They have to be recycled. It is their journey. Take a tour at Kevin’s workshop. In this video, you will see the starting of a caterpillar on his work table.. See the finished project below.

Caterpillars Are Fun To See Around The House.
It all begins at the scrap yard. Kevin goes shopping at the local scrap yard, where he gets his metal for small and large art projects.

This 5 ‘ high outdoor, powder-coated metal sculpture wiggles when you touch it. I noticed the different shades of purple from the reflection of light. It was very vibrant! this is my favorite of Kevin’s work. After looking at this piece, I had to see what else Kevin was wielding from scrap metal. A very talented artist. Kevin Caron’s Outdoor Sculpture
Where does he get his ideas and the metal pieces?  It all comes from his local scrap yard. The metal that is.  Some people who know Kevin Caron,  may drop off scrap metal at his workshop. He creates abstract art or cute sculptures. all shapes and sizes. What it truly comes down to is — if you enjoy making these twisted works of art, then you have found your place in the world!
