just a random photo I played with...

This will be the quickest post in the universe as I've got THINGS TO DO and PEOPLE TO SEE. I am going to shut my computer lid this weekend and pursue some 'real' art for a change and I thought I should wish you all a happy CANADIAN thanksgiving too! Hope you are enjoying it with friends and family Sure have a lot to be thankful for, living in this beautiful country.

I wanted to share this FUNNY that my friend Marie sent me... had me rotfl!

With all the turmoil in the market today and the collapse of Lehman Bros and Acquisition of Merrill Lynch by Bank of America this might be some good advice. For all of you with any money left, be aware of the next expected mergers so that you can get in on the ground floor and make some BIG bucks.

Watch for these consolidations later this year:

1.) Hale Business Systems, Mary Kay Cosmetics, Fuller Brush, and W R. Grace Co. Will merge and become:

Hale, Mary, Fuller, Grace.

2.) Polygram Records, Warner Bros., and Zesta Crackers join forces and become:

Poly, Warner Cracker.

3. 3M will merge with Goodyear and become:


4. Zippo Manufacturing, Audi Motors, Dofasco, and Dakota Mining will merge and become:


5. FedEx is expected to join its competitor, UPS, and become:


6. Fairchild Electronics and Honeywell Computers will become:

Fairwell Honeychild.

7. Grey Poupon and Docker Pants are expected to become:


8. Knotts Berry Farm and the National Organization of Women will become:

Knott NOW!

I'll leave you snickering into your coffee - and also with a few freebie links I gleaned while 'going out to visit my blog friends' over this past day. Sigh, since my dear friend AMY is away for a bit, :( I'll shoulder the responsibility of a teensy EENSY freebie list.

Deb has a clever CU set of tissue paper flowers and even some clothespins.

Lynette has a cute “Kitty” button for giveaway on her blog.

Sherrie has a brag book (and a headache) give away – link to the DSO from her blog SHE’D LOVE YOU TO TAKE HER HEADACHE lol!

And last but not least by any means, Linda always has something lovely, and today its a pretty Fall Splendor quickpage (and some NICE, sooooooothing music too!) haha, makes me want to eat dinner, Linda! My ears thank you.

KimB , does not have a giveaway, but practically one... she has a KILLER CU grabbag. If you're a designer and don't snap it up, you're just silly!

JanMary - still waiting {keeping my eyes peeled... like a banana!}

  4. HI,

    Thanks for stopping by. I love to play in Photshop filters. There are some way cool things that can be done to a photo. I like the diffused glow on old black and whites. This one you did is very nice.

    It took me a sec, but I now remeber dropping by your blog awhile back - it was your Birthday. And I downloaded your Fall word art. I thought I left a Thank you, but in checking, I don't see it there - so a belated thank you.

    Have a great day!


  5. Love you! Miss you! Want my old computer back!

  6. Happy Canadian Thanksgiving! Hope you have a wonderful weekend. I totally enjoyed the insight in future merges (snicker). Whoever came up with those was wonderfully clever.

  7. Good afternoon Barb:)
    I came to see you yesterday
    I saw a link and clicked away..
    I was transported near and far
    without the presence of a car. hehe

    In my travels here and there..
    I had a niggling in my ear.
    Did I forget to leave a praise..
    for all the gorgeous things you've made?

    Please forgive me if you can
    I can't help being who I am.:(

    Hope you are having a wonderful weekend! Thanks for the laugh too.:)Fedup..hehe
