I found a wonderful filter for Photoshop that makes it easier to put animated sparkles on any picture. This is so fun that I played around with it much of the day. Thanks to VM Natural for the free filter. Here's some of what I made. These are profile pictures being used in a virtual chat world I like to visit. (These are actual background scenes in that chat world.)
This site lists everything such as the top 100 biggest cities or the ones with the oldest residents or well, let me repost the links below. (From City-Data.com)

Wow -- at the exact moment -- using high speed photography make these photos very interesting. Here's one of them. Click on it to see more -- and larger versions.
My daughter had her first sonogram today and it is definitely a boy. The tech circled the right body part (in plain sight) so there would be no question. I made a sign for it (any excuse to delve into Photoshop). This will be the first great grandson for the other side of the family too -- Jonathan's grandparents have 3 granddaughters. Much fun!

For lunch today, I got out a can of chicken broth and a bag of noodles. It is one of those cold-weather days when a simple lunch sounds good - noodles boiled in chicken broth and any spare vegetables thrown in or just a sprinkle of salt, if nothing else.
A few of our daffodils are shooting up already. I hope we don't get destructive cold spells from now on. We have several varieties planted. Hopefully, this is a hardy one.

This has been going around the Internet. I think I am in the stage just before the RV. Thanks to Dad for sending this one along.
