ACDSee Photo Manager 2009 is on Sale

for a limited time - $29!

It's PC users only - and it's like Brussels sprouts, you either love it, tolerate it because that's just your way, or hate it. Personally, i cannot scrap without it. And i have found the 2009 version to have been far more stable than the earlier version i had. Still haven't turned on even likely half of the functions, nor have i completely figured out embedding, but i live in hope. And let's not talk about tagging stashes, shall we?

Here's the link. Enjoy!

update on the Olympics situation . . . and a chance to win!

For some of you who were aware - our housing for our long awaited and much hoped for visit to the Vancouver 2010 games fell through at the last minute - but we were able to find a place to stay - PtL! - not on Whistler - because as we all know I simply cannot spend money That Freely - going rate is in excess of $1200/night right now - (but oh, wouldn't it be nice to have that problem sometime? Lord? maybe?) nor quite frankly do I have it to spend - but anyway, Big Sweetie and I are headed up while T@2 exhausts his watchers. WHoo Hoo!

Just read in the paper this morning about several scams already uncovered - this isn't a scam, per se, but unfortunate: apparently whether or not the Norwegian Star, a cruise ship, will or will not be able to berth at Vancouver is not set - some people already booked suites months ago for $1500/night and this week they were going for $275/night with food provided - sounded a bit too good to be true for me, and hopefully for those booked it won't be . . . but they will not find out for certain until at least Friday!

Claire, a.k.a. shades of bliss, incredibly gifted scrapper extraordinare, has generously offered up a gift certificate for the Songbird Avenue Haiti kit - all you have to do is comment on the MSA forum here for a chance to win . . . good luck!

a story...

so as we're putting Mr. Terror at Two Turning Three to bed, he pops out with this...

T@2: "I'm going to tell you a story now, ok?"

Mama & Daddy: "Ok, we're listening."

T@2: "One little day, there was a fish named Nemo.
He lived in the ocean far away.

yes, this will be scrapped onto a page. and soon.

and one from me, with a photo from one of my favorite places on God's earth, Hana, Maui . . .
two words, people - photology elements - by Emily Powers, yes, there are some, and more goodies, in this extra fabulous tremendous kit.
