Honestly I never thought of it until recently. It has taken me 33 years to realize its OK to say you"re an artist. I don"t know why but I always felt timid to talk about my art or even admit I drew or painted something... in the last three years I"ve come to terms with my talents and am totally embracing it and having such a fun time in the process. I used to always feel that the art I created was worthless and hated compliments. Wish I could have... stayed positive.
The Agricenter is hosting the Delta Fair and festival wristbands on August 31-September 9. You will know you are there when you smell the funnel cakes and corn dogs that give you the full fair food experience. As you enter the park purchase a wrist band so that you can enjoy everything that the fair has to offer. Browse through the many arts and crafts vendors. There is a ride for everyone to enjoy and there is a kid zone that offers fun for everyone to enjoy with the kids.

When cyclists use one of the Mobike or ofo shared bikes that seem to dot almost every major city in China, they probably don"t relate the colorful two-wheeler in front of them with a state-of-the-art spacecraft in orbit high above the Earth.
But without the navigational and positioning services that satellites provide, the entire bike-sharing sector would be no more than a pipe dream.
Similarly, without satellite-based navigation devices, tourists and motorists would find that making their way around a megacity or an unfamiliar place would be like solving a puzzle in the dark.
"Like electricity, satellite-based navigation and positioning services have become an indispensable part of people"s lives," said Chi Jun, a senior project manager for the China Academy of Space Technology at China Aerospace Science and Technology Corp.
"If these services malfunctioned, our lives, work and even the national economy would be extensively affected."
To ensure the stability of the services, China continues to build and improve the domestically developed Beidou Navigation Satellite System.
It is one of the nation"s largest space programs and the fourth space-based navigation system in the world, following GPS in the United States, GLONASS in Russia and the European Union"s Galileo system.
On Monday, the fifth and sixth third-generation Beidou satellites were sent into space atop a Long March 3B carrier rocket from the Xichang Satellite Launch Center in Sichuan province.
They are now working from a medium Earth orbit thousands of kilometers above the planet, and will operate for at least 12 years in space, according to the China Satellite Navigation Office.
The vast space-based network is now on a fast track to achieving global coverage capability as a result of the efforts of numerous scientists, engineers and workers, said Chi, from the space technology academy, the biggest developer of Beidou satellites.
