  8. Three years ago today Jody died.  Darren and the boys are well and the boys are growing into young men, “Jody would be proud of”.  Aidan graduated from High School in December and Callan is now 16 ½.  Amazing how time flies.  Darren is touched when I say how Jody is still remembered on ScrapGirls and even recognizes the names when I show him.  She touched so many and is sorely missed... 💕

      Please give my best to Jody's family. I think of her often.

  9. So distressing to watch coverage of the Australian fires burning.  The devastation is unprecedented and the amount of acreage burning is unbelievable.  So sad to see.

      Susie, your words made me tear, because that is so true of humanity and the world.  I live in the state over from New York and after 911 found the same.  So many kind acts and help and getting together to support each other.  And I remember being so grateful to other countries’ support and caring, it does help...  
      For sure, sending love and many thoughts to you all in what I feel of as my adopted country.   Jody always said I was “part Aussie”.  💜

      this is so incredibly sad. I am glad you got to be our ambassador to Australia when you went to Jody's wedding, Marilyn.

      Oh wow - so the price has gone up since this morning, I was afraid of that.   Still I guess with the $10 GC it’s only $59.00.   I’ll keep watch on it.

      Hi Marilyn, I just saw your post…don’t know if this helps but this is what some of the upgrades are and what I thought about them. I have been using PSE 2020 for about two months. I upgraded after I got my laptop back in October. So far, no problems with my system or any upgrades from Microsoft since I installed it.

      GUIDED MODE Upgrades

      BASICS - OBJECT REMOVAL

      I found this easy to use and required less steps than earlier versions.

      FUN EDITS - PATTERN BRUSH

      This is a fun new edit that might catch your eye.

      SPECIAL EDITS - PERFECT PORTRAIT

      If you do a lot of portrait work, this feature alone might be worth the upgrade.

      EXPERT MODE Upgrades

      FILE - ORDER PRINTS - FUJIFILM Prints & Gifts

      You can place an order for prints straight from inside Elements.

      ENHANCE - COLORIZE PHOTO

      If you have a lot of black and white photos and you just want to quickly add color and you are not picky about accuracy, this would be a great feature.

      ENHANCE - SMOOTH SKIN

      This new feature is probably my favorite. It is accurate, and it can save you time.

      SELECT - SUBJECT

      You can achieve the same results in earlier versions.

      Linda, thanks SO much for typing this all out and sharing such great information, it’s very helpful!  It sounds like PSE 20 is good and I’m happy to hear you haven’t had any problems and although I have a Mac, but hopefully that won’t be an issue.    I’m glad to know you have this version for when I start to install and use it.  Last time I upgraded Jody walked me through the whole thing, I might call on you for advice when I decide to install.    :D  THANKS again!  :) 

  15. Is it a scary thought that today is one month ’til Christmas?   Seriously???  😱 🎄

      I missed it too. I took 3 of my DGS(s) to Fall Fun day at our park. I think it's always the same day as DSD.

  19. I’m stuck in Newark airport.  Which is actually where I started out 8 ½ hours ago.  Delay. Delay again. On plane sat an hour.  Moved toward runway sat another hour.    Then pilot announced route to Rochester closed due to weather.   Awhile later they found another route but it was lower and longer so we didn’t have enough fuel.  Plus they were receiving notifications about our plane so it needed to be serviced.   So that flight was cancelled and all the rest tonight and tomorrow are full. So now they are bussing all of us to Rochester and the bus won’t get here til 9:30 pm. A 5 hour drive so we should be in around 3am or so......   I won’t even tell you about the outside walking and ramps and stairs to get to a bus to get to the plane in the first place. And then do it all again to come back..  Meanwhile the website announced us as landed in Rochester!I hope I get there by 4:30 tomorrow for the wedding.

      lovely photo and looks like you had nice weather as well. Glad your trip trip home went well. It will certainly be a memory to scrap in more ways than one :)

      I DID love Ngaire and Dave and we talked about you Jane and how I hoped one day to visit New Zealand and both of you and to meet you one day.  I sure hope to see you here, that would be awesome!

      You can come and stay with us anytime Marilyn, your bedroom is waiting :)  the North and South Island are very different so it will feel like you have been on two very different holidays :)

      Thank you guys!  I had a low-key birthday, spent time with my family, plus Karlie had a couple of girls over for a sleepover last night.  I ate too much good food, to include cake, pasta carbonara, and garlic bread, made by DH - yum!
