Studebaker hubcap clock
From Hubcap to clock
I wanted to tell you a bit more about my hubcap clocks. As needed, each of these clocks are polished, detailed, and waxed. They will glisten in the sunlight light a 1958 corvette! Wait . . . a few of hubcap clocks are made from ’58 corvettes. Seriously, if you give these as gifts, your friends and relatives willing be talking about them for years.
One of a kind Hubcap clocks
We are talking about are one-of-a-kind products, and not some standard, cookie-cutter produce items from Asia in sanitized wrapping. Each has the historic value that transcends the car industry. Each is a piece of art that reflects the values and aesthetics of the period of history they are from.
Making and shipping a hubcap clock
How are hucap clocks made? Most of the time that Bryan spends on them goes into finding the hubcaps, cleaning, and boxing the final product. They often come to him caked with grime and need considering cleaning and polishing. The actual clock making of gluing the numbers on, a bit of detail work on the hubcap, and installing the clock mechanism goes pretty quick. Also, a lot of care needs to go into shipping the hubcap clocks. He measures, cuts, and glues a different set of cardboard supports for the inside of the box for each different kind of hubcap clock that I sell and ship. If I don’t do that well, there is good chance of damage in shipment and that is not acceptable. Most of my sales are on Etsy. Work I support.

My Green Wisdom business supports my progressive politics. This includes Eastern Washington Voters. We are a progressive political membership organization with members across Eastern Washington. Most of them are in Spokane and Pullman.
Jay Inslee for the next Governor of Washington
We have put up a number of election year websites, including this one in support of Jay Inslee for Governor. Jay is a 5th generation son of Washington who wants to the next Governor of Washington. Jay Inslee moved to the Yakima Valley where he raised his family and became an attorney. He ran for Congress and won. He later moved to Whatcom County on the West Side of the State and won there as well.
Jay is devoted to creating good paying jobs in both western and eastern Washington through research, private equity, labor, and quality education. Jay Inslee say’s must build the best work force in the county, and through it we can build an engine for economic growth.
Fire Rep. Cathy McMorris Rodgers
We have also put up a website against Rep. Cathy McMorris Rodgers. McMorris-Rodgers likes to project this image of being a citizen legislator, and just this girl from the fruit stands of Eastern Washington. In reality, she is career politician and party insider.
It is interesting that Cathy McMorris Rodgers boasts no legislative successes to speak of. After eight years in Congress, she has accomplished very little. She spends most of her time engaging in Party politics and scheming for more position and power for the sake of power.
McMorris Rodgers faces protesters.
McMorris is not very popular in Spokane, which in the largest city in her districrt. On tax day, these protestors picketted her office.
Here is an archive of Eastern Washington Voters, and here is a second archive of politics in Eastern Washington, and yet a third.
