I wrote about PicMonkey, a wonderful photo editing site, in a previous post. Did you know that the founders of PicMonkey were formerly with Picnik? That’s why I like it so much! There’s a great interview with the founders of PicMonkey on ShePosts. Here is the link. Read it. You’ll get excited – especially when they talk about the Collage Tool they are coming up with. Hold on to your hats, they’ve got lots of wonderful plans in the works.
The Bronson Pinchot Project
Have you seen this new show? It’s on the DIY Network and I’m crazy about it. Bronson Pinchot, a very talented actor, is also an extremely talented restorer of older homes. He fell in love with a house in a small town in Pennsylvania and restored it. He has since bought several other homes in the same town that he is also restoring. First of all, I love his taste and clear passion for older homes. He’s also very funny, slightly eccentric in the best sense of the word and has surrounded himself with a colorful cast of characters who help him realize his renovation dreams. In a world of DIY shows hosted by pretty or impossibly handsome young things (which make my eyes glaze over and bore me to tears) this show really stands out. Take note, HGTV, with your choice of ridiculously young, model-like hosts.
The first season is just about to end – I think there were 6 or 7 episodes. I’ve been watching it on the “On Demand” channel on my cable. If you click the above link, you can find out when it’s airing. I think you’ll really like it.
And now, on to The Tempest, Act III. It’s supposed to rain today so it’s shaping up to be a work-indoors-kind-of-day. Yesterday I worked outside most of the day. The garden beds are all cleaned out. Hurrah!
