My desktop computer is 7 years old. In technology years my husband says that's about 95. It's been slowing down and having issues, requiring more care to keep it running. So before it completely died, we bought a new one. It's a pretty laptop - so I can blog from anywhere, like the couch, where I am now.
I had to install all my programs on it, and ended up with a new version of Picasa. I use a downloaded version of Picasa for viewing my images and editing them. There are a lot of new features in this version and I've had fun playing with both my new computer and the new editing possibilities.
For this collage, I blurred a photo of rocks to use as the background, put borders on the photos, increased the caption border, and added text underneath.
Last Christmas I gave my husband a coupon book for various outings. One was a walk through the Oak Bay Marina followed by hot chocolate at the coffee shop. A couple of weeks ago, that's what we did on a Sunday afternoon. But the boats were too enthralling - the coffee shop closed before we had our hot chocolate. So of course, we had to go again!
