Happy New Year! Today we did our first walk of the year outside -- on the Cook Trail. It was warm -- about 55, but windy. We walked from the far side of Ivy Tech up to Lowe's, about 3.6 miles round trip.
I just uploaded a small fix to my Elements tutorial on Elemasks. Next, i'm gonna make my Journal '04 Archive page. :)
Merry Christmas 2003!
Today I uploaded more acceptances for the Challenge Trophy! What a fun Challenge it was! I hope that, if you're reading this and you have not yet participated in a Challenge, that you'll get onto my mailing list now for the next one!
I think that the only thing that has me bummed today, aside from world events which you don't have to hear about from me, is knowing that our non-smoking cruise ship Paradise is going to become a smoking ship. This means that the cruise upon which we are to embark in January will be our last, till someone does another smoke-free one.
I have been working on the course descriptions for my LVS Online courses. I don't know what will be approved yet, but the stuff I'm preparing looks very exciting to me! It will be above "beginner-level," and takes off into the application of Photoshop into some different directions. I'll keep you posted!

I'm working on a tutorial on interfaces with rollovers. I'll post as soon as i have something worth posting.
This morning posted some acceptances for the Challenge Trophy for the Holiday Challenge.
I have just a wee bit more shopping to do. Think i'll sneak out this morning!
Nearly forgot to mention that i'm on the faculty now for LVS Online. I'll be teaching Photoshop (and maybe Elements) topics beginning in the March term! I will be writing my own course materials and the class will run with a Message Board and live chat. Should be fun!

Updated Tutorials: Art & Special Effects and Tutorials: Other Applications by adding Vecpix. Check it out. Cool site. Also added Tioem (T-O-M) with 6 cool tuts to the Art & Special Effects tuts.
Cold weather rules the day around here of late. Walking has been in the mall, which is something of a drag and pretty difficult at times with all the holiday shoppers! However, we are encouraged to see shopping bags -- and lots of them!
