Rape: Woman can now bite back

Rape is nothing to joke about... in South Africa a women invented this condom type insert to "clamp down" on a male's penis with micoscopic hooks. The hooks must be removed by a doctor.

Some women have taken a stand against the lack of law enforcement efforts and believe that the insert is suggesting that women have to adapt to rape.

Considering that a women is raped every 26 seconds in South is something to think about...

What is digi scrapbooking?

Basically, digi scrapping is using a photo editing program to create a digital scrapbook page.

I have some of my digi layouts posted on my myspace page and I often hear, "How do you do that?" The answer is simple... I am addicted to digi scrapbooking. I don't pretend that I am the greatest at it, but I know just enough to spend way too much time entering challenges and building beatiful pages to perserve these precious times.

Here are some basics to get you started:

1. Select a photo editing program. I like to use photoshop elements 5.0 It is simple yet versital. If you perform an online search, you can easily find one for about $30.

2. Purchase or find some download freebies. I recommend downloading some freebies until you are familiar with the process and discover your style and favorite designers. I recommend the following sites for some rockin freebies:

Download and open your files in a folder labeled "digi scrapbooking." (I will post later about how to set up and organize your files)

On to creating a page:

Open your photo editing program. I will give directions that I would use in PE 5.
1. Select file; open
2. After selecting the appropriate folder; select items you wish to use; you can select multiple items by holding down the ctrl key
3. Repeat step 2 as needed to select all of the pictures, papers, and elements you wish to use
4. Drag and drop the items onto the work space in your editing program. (I start with a 12"by 12" paper so that my page will be 12" by 12"

Make sure to save your work.

This is my oldest son with my father. He calls him Be-Ba. I don't know why, but it is cute. They were at Fish Point looking at a few hundered geese.

Thoughts to Ponder

I found these musings on a blog...

Only in America do drugstores make the sick walk all the way to the back of the store to get their prescriptions while healthy people can buy cigarettes at the front.
Only in America people order double cheeseburgers, large fries, and a diet coke.
Only in America do banks leave both doors open and then chain the pens to the counters.
Only in America we leave cars worth thousands of dollars in the driveway and put our useless junk in the garage.
Only in America do we buy hot dogs in packages of ten and buns in packages of eight.
Only in America we use the word 'politics' to describe the process so well: 'Poli' in Latin meaning 'many' and 'tics' meaning 'bloodsucking creatures'.
Only in America ... .do they have drive-up ATM machines with Braille lettering.
Why the sun lightens our hair, but darkens our skin ?
Why women can't put on mascara with their mouth closed?
Why don't you ever see the headline 'Psychic Wins Lottery'?
Why is 'abbreviated' such a long word?
Why is it that doctors call what they do 'practice'?
Why is lemon juice made with artificial flavor, and dishwashing liquid made with real lemons?
Why is the man who invests all your money called a broker?
Why is the time of day with the slowest traffic called rush hour?
Why isn't there mouse-flavored cat food?
Why didn't Noah swat those two mosquitoes?
Why do they sterilize the needle for lethal injections?
You know that indestructible black box that is used on airplanes? Why don't they make the whole plane out of that stuff?!
Why don't sheep shrink when it rains?
Why are they called apartments when they are all stuck together?
If flying is so safe, why do they call the airport the terminal?

My mom rocks!

I already new that my mom spoiled me when it comes to always being there for what ever I needed. But man, after 10 days of her being in Arizona I realize just what an awesome woman she is.
I want to remind myself that this woman can no longer do any wrong in my eyes. She gives of herself unselfishly and doesn't think twice. She is truly an amazing woman. I hope that one day I can support my children as much as she has supported me!!!!
Gotta love mom!
