Another YeeHaw Friday!

I am actually taking a partial day off today! I plan to leave the office around 10:00 AM, go meet Matt the Brat, My Girl Shawna, Sugar Pie Wyatt and Lilly Bug at their house and we are taking off to go see Mom & Dad. I would really like to get some fishing in on Lake Conroe, but we will probably spend most of our time cleaning out Memaw's house. It has already been sold, which is a good thing, but there is just so much to move! There are boxes upon boxes upon BOXES of photos and old 8mm movies that I will be picking up. Thank goodness UPS brought my new CanoScan LiDE 600F today! When it comes to scanners, I don't think there is anything better than a Canon. I have had mine for 7 years, there is nothing wrong with it, it is still going strong, but I am way past the point of needing one that scans negatives. I will be passing Old Faithful down to Mom, since her all in one decided to not be an all in one anymore. It prints, it copies, but it has decided that scanning is not in it's repertoire. (Oohwee, look at me using them big words!)

Now, a little ramble about Photoshop CS3. Here's what's happened so far. I downloaded & installed it, took a little look around, then went and opened up PSE5 to finish up what I needed to do. As I've said, I know I can learn it with no problem, I'm just not sure if I need to. Being a person of the accounting persuasion, I have to be able to justify the cost. Is there anybody out there that can tell me in simple terms why it would be better for me than PSE 5. So far, all I know is that you can write actions with it, hell, I don't need to do that, I buy all mine from Atomic Cupcake! ROTFLPIMP!!!

Denise had an interesting question. She would like to know if I prefer comments on 4shared or here on the blog. Well, I am just thankful for everything that ya'll are kind enough to say, where ever it may be, but if I had to choose, I prefer them here on the blog. Here is the main reason why. When your 4shared account starts to get close to it's limit and you have to remove older files to make room for your new stuff, you also lose all of the kind, funny, sweet and witty comments that your readers have left for you. The ones left here on the blog are here forever.

I know if you have read this far, you are wondering where the rest of Mango Daiquiri is! I intend to put the finishing touches on and pack it up during the long ride today and upload it either tonight or tomorrow, so stay tuned!

Happy Friday to you also! Two weeks ago I did have that ice cold beer with that philly cheese steak and it was yummy!

I did have Photoshop and it was way beyond me. I use PSE6 and it is hard enough to learn but at least I'm doing so. You could ask Jessica Sprague, I think she uses both.

I entered a contest and used your Mango Daiquiri and thought I would give you the link. I am not very good. I did not do your kit justice. Please let me know if I used the TOU properly. Thanks.

p.s. Thanks for answering about the posts. I prefer using the blog.

I love reading your posts! Your writing style cracks me up. I just bought CS3 Design Standard, which includes Illustrator, InDesign, Acrobat, and Photoshop. Will I use them all? I dunno, maybe Illustrator and Photoshop. But I bought it through an educational discount for my daughter who is in high school, so it only set me back $400 - still a huge hunk of change for something I haven't used yet. LOL. You can also create your own custom shapes and layer styles in Photoshop (so I am told, don't ask me how). That would be nice to be able to do too. Anyway, rambling - love the kit, the brackets and thanks for the link to my blog for the dome! Keep up the great work!
