Larry Hering replied to Kathleen V. Smith's discussion Does anyone else have this problem?!!!
"And this is a bad thing?   In this day of rampant fraud and identity theft THEY'RE PROTECTING YOU!  I had one of my cards hacked recently; my bank theorized that the card was read remotely when I bought gas at the pump at a gas…"

Larry Hering commented on Reid Watts's blog post Airbnb
"We used AirBNb this July when we worked at Wyandotte and Ann Arbor, with mixed results.   The real problem in my view is you don't really know what you're getting until you're there.   We booked into a house in Hamtramck,…"

Larry Hering replied to Doug Naugle's discussion Portable Power Station, what is a good brand/model?
"I've seen miniature battery operated power sources advertised which will charge led tracklights, theoretically for a day. Does anyone have any experience with these? "

Larry Hering replied to steve jones's discussion another booth shot...looking for more feedback.
"Other than Larry's advice and the wrinkles, which are going to be nearly impossible to eliminate in that type of fabric if you're on the road (unless you like to iron every week), the booth looks great.  If I was walking by I'd…"

Larry Hering replied to Claudia & Sergio Olivos's discussion What do you recommend: save $$ and buy a van or a trailer? What do you use for transporting it all?
"Hi guys: Amanda and I use a GMC Savana 1500 van that we bought very used.  Like Diane we rented from Enterprise for a while before buying, and like most everything else we keep the tent, panels, tools, furniture, weights etc. packed all the…"

Larry Hering replied to Claudia & Sergio Olivos's discussion What do you recommend: save $$ and buy a van or a trailer? What do you use for transporting it all?
"Hey guys: Amanda and I have been pulling a travel trailer with our cargo van for several years.  It's good and bad, depending on how you think about it.  Dennis is right in that it gives you freedom, you meet nice people, and we get…"

Larry Hering commented on David Kachel's blog post West Texas Anybody?
"David, I lived in El Paso for (jeez, was it that long?).  I went to Kermezaar (didn't have an artist wife then) and liked the show, as a customer.  It's an indoor show in the fall, run by a local org. and charges…"

Larry Hering commented on Christine Heisler's blog post Pro Gallery Covers
"Christine, we used them for several years before switching to pro panels and I liked them.  easy to put up; the velcro lined up perfectly with the mesh panels and looked pretty good.  we have pro panels now for a year; they look better,…"

Larry Hering commented on Caroline Kwas's blog post Two gutterballs in a row...
"Chin up, Caroline.  Happy days will be here again.   We just had to cancel two shows (St. James Ct. and the Waynesville Sauerkraut festival) because Amanda's mom died in Colombia.  She's there attending to her family while I…"

Larry Hering replied to Claudia & Sergio Olivos's discussion What do you recommend: save $$ and buy a van or a trailer? What do you use for transporting it all?
"Hi guys: Nobody ever told me I have to silicon spray the canopy; it just made sense, considering the material and how it's used. If you ever camped with an old (read not nylon) tent, waterproofing was pretty much a requirement. Anyway, it…"

"Hi Guys: When we started out we managed to get everything either into or onto the top of a Nissan Murano... any SUV will work if you can pack stuff on the roof. We've switched recently to a cargo van (GMC Savanna... we bought it used about…"

Larry Hering replied to Jim Dalton's discussion What's the worst question you have been asked at an art fair?
"My wife still does nudes and seminude ceramic torsos.  I get a lot of "what's it made of?"  and my reply, if I think I can get away with it, is "human skin", and then I go into my best Buffalo Bill.."It puts…"
