Update~My New Camera!

Well, it turns out that the bug I caught got into just about everything on my computer. My son had to dump and reload the entire system so I now have a brand new computer...sorta. I've spent the last fews days re-downloading my photo editors, Java, etc. We did manage to save my pictures and documents. *phew* I now have much better security which I WILL update & use faithfully. That's my New Years resolution for 2008, 2009, etc.

For Christmas I had asked for a tripod. My thinking? I plan to photograph and copy my artwork onto a disc. I'll then have my prints made from the disc so I can mat and frame the originals without wondering if I've had enough printed beforehand. I already had a little Kodak Easyshare CX6445 which has been very good to me. I've had the best luck photographing rather than scanning my work. The images just seem to be better. I did get my tripod along with a brand new Canon Powershot S5 IS from my boys and WOWZERS! According to the manuals(of which there are several) this thing can do everything but the dishes. I'm still studying and playing with my new toy so it'll be a little while before I'll be posting any shots.

'Tis The Season

Sorry for the lack of recent updates on my blog. I caught a 'bug' online and even though I managed to remove the infection I was left with some glitches. It takes a month of Sundays for my homepage to load these days. It was a small miracle two nights ago my computer didn't wind up in a snow bank. *cuss* Help is on the way from my oldest son but he works long hours and is hard to corral. With any luck things will be back to normal before Christmas and I can upload some new work.

P.S. I can't take credit for the image on this post although I wish I could. I love it! Be sure to click on the Christmas cat to see him twinkle.
