IRON WHILE THE STRIKE IS HOT

Miles is on strike.

We are not overjoyed by this fact. Its a rude and harsh disruption - but neccesary at times. So we make the best of things. He's working 3 hours a day to earn the $50 dollars a day that will have to feed and clothe us. At least we are able to catch up on other things that have been on the back burner for a bit. The downside is the weather is lousy, the upside that students and supporters and fellow staff bring hot coffee and donut offerings. Hopefully this will not last for long, but we are not holding our breath.

SYNC OR SWIM

I finally learned to 'sync' with the computer. I had to upload over 1100 photos to a nifty little toy called a Zen by Creative. I set an entire morning aside for the challenge and pushed on ahead, resolving not to leave my chair till the job was done. It turned out to be not so hard, after a few glitches and hidden hurdles I managed to figure it all out. Who writes these instructions, anyways? There always seems to be bits of key information you have to 'dig' for...But after its all said and done there is something very powerful and rewarding about learning a new skill. It amazes me how quickly it becomes familiar. So, I even ended up downloading and syncing The Italian Movie to the machine so our friend might enjoy it in an airport waiting for a flight. Then I ventured furthere and added some of their favorite music. Of course I would love to have one of these little things... Posted by Picasa

OUR BROTHER IS GETTING MARRIED!

We received a call the night before last....duh, it took me long enough to post it here....DAVE AND NETI ARE GETTING MARRIED! They will tie the knot at an undisclosed place on an undisclosed day, but look here at an undisclosed date in the future to find out how it all went. We feel so blessed to welcome Neti to our family (brave girl!). We love you both so much and wish you all the happiness on your special day.

ADDICTED TO GRAPHICS!

Ok, it's severe. Yesterday Miles offered to go out and get a video for me. I opted instead to watch the video "Photoshop Down and Dirty Tricks 2" When I said this, MIles gave me a sly little grin and a playful elbow in the ribs. I can remember when I used to watch him on the computer and it was all greek to me. Now, its a good thing we both have our own computers or it might cause some marital issues....well, never that, but it would challenge us.

Today my friend came over. She arrived the same moment the courier showed up with the parcel that contained her new Zen! We sorted through her 800+ photographs. I've got them all scanned and adjusted, now we need to resize them before uploading them into her nifty little machine. She's pretty excited about it. Posted by Picasa
