IMAGING SOFTWARE – THE FINAL FRONTIER-it has to be fast, simple, easy to use, easy to learn and produce the processing effect that in your heart and mind I am on in years and I have used software products from the early stone age of digital image processing that you never heard of. That’s okay
The Print – They confront us esthetically and emotionally with wonderful memories and stories-They are there screaming look at me again. This is a difficult subject.

Almost every year I have posted my own article about tick bites and mosquito bites. But everyone, including myself have a tendency to forget about the nasty ramifications of not remembering especially in our part of the country (Virginia, Maryland, West Virginia, etc..)
