NEW WAYS TO USE YOUR DIGITAL CAMERA FOR FUN AND PROFITWritten by Valerie Goettsch

Archive photos of your personal possessions in case of fire or theft Using your digital camera, you can quickly and easily take photos of your personal possessions such as TVs, DVD players, stereo equipment, furniture, computers and other expensive items so you have a record of them for insurance purposes. Be sure to log serial numbers and keep a record of purchase prices too. For safekeeping, transfer images to a CD and keep it in a safe deposit box, or upload images to an online photo storage service that offers unlimited storage, such as Pixagogo.
Digital Scrapbook Digital scrap booking, or computer scrap booking, is newest way to preserve your family memories. Using inexpensive, easy-to-use scrapbook software, you can create entire scrapbook layouts and add fun fonts and graphics to take your scrapbook project to a new creative level. Computer scrap booking has really taken off in last year because people are finding it is less expensive, fast and takes up less space (no more taking over family dining table) to make a computer generated scrapbook versus traditional scrap booking techniques. Most people already have a computer and digital camera, and once you have a scrap booking graphics software package and perhaps invested in a scanner for older photos, you're ready to go. You can easily color correct images, lighten dark photos, crop out old boyfriends, and even erase scratches from old photos. Most software programs come with special effects so you can enhance your photos and pages with antique sepia tones, torn or burnt edges, crinkles, soften or fade edges, add digital picture frames, and much more.
Have fun with your camera and let your imagination explore boundaries.

Feng Shui Flying Star application.... (Advanced)Written by John Mausolf
Continued from page 1
Check pathways into premises, what is being brought in at facing and sitting sides, also at doorways, simply use entry way that has most positive water star located there. Look at what energies are being carried through your premises are they positive or negative? Use an appropriate pathway.
Check what energies are being brought into each room, by shrinking chart down and placing it centred over each room so as to see water stars at door ways.
Check front door/main entry door influence, by centring your chart over doorway and seeing what water stars are being brought there from outside (along path or driveway) and check how they work together (for, against, etc...)
This is really all a beginner needs to do when looking at Flying Stars. Make sure to look at forms (surroundings) outside, do they support stars?
Hope this helps you. Let me know.
