Funny Friday and CS4

I've been laughing my ass off all morning. I came across this comic strip this morning and literally spewed my coffee everywhere. For the last few weeks I've been waking Ralph up with foot rubs and back rubs trying to butter him up. When I saw this comic strip I felt totally busted! I don't think I realized what I was doing but it's pretty obvious after reading this.
My friend Kelly linked me up to this site a few weeks ago. Very funny stuff. Check him out at What the Duck

In other news....yesterday I downloaded the upgrade for CS4 and I am impressed! I've barely scratched the surface but so far the tab view is my new best friend. Yesterday I played around with the "content aware cropping" and that thing just blows my mind. If you haven't seen the video on that check it out here.
Oh and the new adjustments window in pretty cool too. You can read more about the software review here.
So if you've been on the fence about upgrading to CS4 I suggest you run to Adobe and get it now. You won't regret it!

Did you see the full moon?

I love full moons. I think they are just magical and beautiful. I especially love it when there is a full moon in the fall sky. I'm not sure why but maybe it has to do with my brother's birthday this month. Tomorrow he would have been 36. Unfortunately he only made it 76 days past his 30th birthday. He was such a sweet kid. I have to call him a kid because to me he'll always be my little brother. The one I loved to aggravate and the one who would always spy on me and my girl friends. He used to drive me insane when we were kids but we were always inseparable. I was 5yrs old when my mom brought him home from the hospital. He was like my baby doll for the longest time. When he got older I would pin him down on the floor and let the spit from my mouth hang down and try and slurp it back up before it fell in his face. Sometimes I was fast enough and sometimes not. LOL. Tell me you did that too. So anyway, this week I've been thinking about him a lot. I think about all the things we've missed out on not having him around for the last few years. I sure do miss that boy. So anyway when I looked up and saw that full gorgeous moon last night I couldn't help but think about Jesse. I think he was on the other side of that moon looking down at us and hopefully seeing what a gorgeous daughter he has and how she is growing up so smart and well adjusted. So with that I leave you with a picture of the moon and a collage of some photos of my little brother that was taken over the years. Ranging from when he was a cute chubby baby to the last Halloween he had with his daughter. No sad thoughts OK!! Only happy thoughts and say a shout out to Jesse and wish him a happy birthday.

Moo cards!!!!

They are so stinkin' cute. I don't know what exactly I'll do with them but they are so cute. And very heavy card stock with a nice finish. I think I'm going to order Ralph some to use as business contact cards.

Went to the county fair.

Don't you just love this time of year. The air is cool and crisp and it's fair time!!!! Well at least it's fair time around here. Here is a picture of a Ferris Wheel that was built in 1962 and once ridden by Elvis Presley. I thought that was pretty cool. It was a perfect October night.
