April Fool's!

Google always has the best April Fool’s day pranks. At least, I think they’re great now that I know they exist. A couple years back, I opened gmail on April 1st to see this brilliant new plan that would print out and archive your emails for you and deliver them all for free! I fell for that one hook, line and sinker.

So this morning when I opened up gmail, I was only momentarily excited to see this:

picture-6Have a good one, folks! According the sun and moon calendars, April should be a beautiful month!

Shutterfly Share Sites

I’m starting to think that I’m ridiculously addicted to the internet. I like trying out and signing up for anything and everything that I find.

I received a coupon for 50 free prints from Shutterfly via email, and of course I had to take advantage. I think my apartment could use some new pictures, and I have had the opportunity to take tons of them in the past few months.

So, I decided that I would upload pictures from January 1 through today. The first 80 days of 2009. It’s been fun, I will have to admit. It’s kind of hard to believe that so much has happened in a mere 80 days, but then that’s probably also why I haven’t been home for a full 24 hours in almost a month.

At any rate, upon perusing the Shutterfly website, I came across Shutterfly Share Sites. I don’t think that it’s something that I would use for myself personally because I have too many photo sharing capabilities as it is. I was thinking, however, that it might be a good way to share pictures with our brides after their weddings. Right now, we’re sending Picasa albums to our brides 2 days after their weddings. This gives more of a personal feel and we can adapt them to the couple’s personality. It even provides opportunity for a guestbook and that might be even more fun.

I suppose it’s something we can discuss when we meet tomorrow—among other things!

For now, this is my sample site….80 Days in 2009.


Every year, I get this nice little debit to my checking account to renew my .mac account. I use the @mac email address for some things, but not really for much.

So, a couple of years ago, I figured that I should make use of the web space. I’ve done several different things with it, and I decided last night that I should update the latest version, which was my photography portfolio. I opened it up last night and realized that this photography “thing” has been a dream for a few years as it listed my age at 24. Oh my!

There are still a few things that I want to add to it, but this is the updated version (including adding 2 years to my age!).


Mac Stuff: iWork

Mac StuffSo in all the years I’ve had a Mac (and it’s been over 15), I’ve never used iWork.

iLife has been a staple for “playing” with my Mac. I’ve enjoyed iPhoto and iTunes immensely. I’ve even played around with GarageBand. All in all, it’s been very awesome!

A week ago, a friend gave me a copy of iWork. I’ve never really thought it was necessary because I’ve had Microsoft for Mac for the past. So, I was somewhat hesitant to even install it. Of course, because that’s how these things go, I did. And I love it! It’ s just simply the Mac version of Word—READ: much better ūüėČ
