photo albums

Question for my techy friends. I'm looking for a desktop photo album for digital photos. Something like Photobucket, but for my desktop.

I've been scanning in all my old family photos and I need a way to organize them now. At this point, I don't want to post them on-line. There is got to be an easy way to label & organize them.

god is bowling folklore

I was just speaking with a co-worker about the thunderstorm last night and he was telling me his kids were very afraid. So I said just tell them that it was God bowling. He had never heard that story before!

I was wondering if it was because he's Muslim. As a Jew I heard it, and I know my Christian friends have heard it.

Would this be a religious tale? Although, I seem to remember something about the norse tale of Odin playing 9 pin.

dating again - well trying to

So I've signed up with Match.com and have been looking through the 'matches' they have for me. Honestly, I've found 95% of them boring and I'm probably wasting my money.

I've received about a half dozen emails from guys, and I've noticed, at least it seems to me, that they are just your standard, 'Hi this is me, this is what I'm looking for.' And what they say, is pretty much a re-write of what is in their profile, so when I go to check it out to find out more, there isn't anything new. When I read thier emails, they go on (and on) about how beautiful I am and how loving they are (sorry, but flattery will not get you anywhere if I haven't even met you first) and I feel like I'm reading a form letter.

It's like they didn't even bother to read my profile. Not a single one has said 'hey, you like to volunteer, so do I' or 'hey, you like science fiction convetions, so do I' .... nadda.

Now when I read profiles and would like to find out more about, I usually pick out one or two things from his profile to chat about. I'm wondering if I'm doing something wrong.

photo with child: your daughter is cute, how old is she
mentions he plays music: do you play an instrument? what style music?
mentions he has kids: what kind?

I'm really beginning to feel like a social misfit :-(


welder needed

The hood ornament of my car broke off, I can see that it was just a loop, and then a wire was passed through the loop to attach the part.

I called the dealership and it's $33 to replace the part!!! plus who knows how much to attach it.

I figured if I could find someone who's a welder who could just make a new loop for the existing part, I could wire the thing back on myself.

Is there anyone who can help? or knows someone who could do this for me? ... i.e. for less than $33


just one of those things I had to share

A carrot, an egg, or a cup of coffee... Which One are you?
Please Read - You will never look at a cup of coffee the same way again.

A young woman went to her mother and told her about her life and how things were so hard for her. She did not know how she was going to make it and wanted to give up, She was tired of fighting and struggling. It seemed as one problem was solved, a new one arose.

Her mother took her to the kitchen. She filled three pots with water and placed each on a high fire. Soon the pots came to boil. In the first she placed carrots, in the second she place d eggs, and in the last she placed ground coffee beans. She let them sit and boil; without saying a word.

In about twenty minutes she turned off the burners. She fished the carrots out and placed them in a bowl. She pulled the eggs out and placed them in a bowl. Then she ladled the coffee out and placed it in a bowl. Turning to her daughter, she asked, ' Tell me what you see.' ----------- 'Carrots, eggs, and coffee,' she replied.

Her mother brought her closer and asked her to feel the carrots. She did and noted that they were soft. The mother then asked the daughter to take an egg and break it. After pulling off the shell, she observed the hard boiled egg.

Finally, the mother asked the daughter to sip the coffee. The daughter smiled as she tasted its rich aroma. The daughter then asked, 'What does it mean, mother?'

Her mother explained that each of these objects had faced the same adversity: boiling water. Each reacted differently. The carrot went in strong, hard, and unrelenting. However, after being subjected to the boiling water, it =2 0 softened and became weak. The egg had been fragile. Its thin outer shell had protected its liquid interior, but after sitting through the boiling water, its inside became hardened. The ground coffee beans were unique, however. After they were in the boiling water, they had changed the water.

'Which are you?' she asked her daughter. 'When adversity knocks on your door, how do you respond? Are you a carrot, an egg or a coffee bean?

Think of this: Which am I? Am I the carrot that seems strong, but with pain and adversity do I wilt and become soft and lose my strength?

Am I the egg that starts with a malleable heart, but changes with the heat? Did I have a fluid spirit, but after a death, a breakup, a financial hardship or some other trial, have I become hardened and stiff? Does my shell look the same, but on the inside am I bitter and tough with a stiff spirit and hardened heart?

Or am I like the coffee bean? The bean actually changes the hot water, the very circumstance that brings the pain. When the water gets hot, it releases the fragrance and flavor. If you 20are like the bean, when things are at their worst, you get better and change the situation around you. When the hour is the darkest and trials are their greatest do you elevate yourself to another level? How do you handle adversity? Are you a carrot, an egg or a coffee bean?

May you have enough happiness to make you sweet, enough trials to make you strong, enough sorrow to keep you human and enough hope to make you happy.

The happiest of people don't necessarily have the best of everything; they just make the most of everything that comes along their way. The brightest future will always be based on a forgotten past; you can't go forward in life until you let go of your past failures and heartaches.

When you were born, you were crying and everyone around you was smiling.

Live your life so at the end, you're the one who is smiling and everyone around you is crying.

You might want to send this message to those people who mean something to you (I JUST DID); to those who have touched your life in one way or another; to those who make you smile when you really need it; to those who make you see the brighter side of things when you are really down; to those whose friendship you appreciate; to those who are so meaningful in your life.

If you don't send it, you will just miss out on the opportunity to brighten someone's day with this message!

May we all be COFFEE!!!!!!!
