It Was an Awesome Trip

In our 38+ years of marriage we have been to several places. One I recall when our kids were young was DisneyWorld. It was great. Younger daughter turned 6 the day after we got there!

Hubby and I just returned from our second trip to Florida, and our first one driving. We planned on attending one of the largest RV shows in Tampa. We bought a really expensive souvenir, a 2018 Roadtrek Zion Class B motorhome. Actually, it is on order and we are rather impatient to get the call to pick it up. We took 3 days to get to Florida, trying to follow the 330 rule. That is, travel no more than 330 miles or quit driving by 3:30 pm. We were close. We left Tennessee a couple of days after some nasty weather. Because there are huge sections through central Tennessee that have no cell service, we opted to add almost 80 miles by following I-40 east to Knoxville and I-75 south, instead of hopping on TN-111, which is not far from home.

Entering into Florida on Martin Luther King, Jr.'s birthday holiday, the Welcome Center was closed except for restrooms. I couldn't resist the photo of the welcome sign.

The other photo was taken with a white Zion, not the exact model we bought, but the right color! On the left is Pastor Dave Bliss, who assisted us with our purchase.

I can say for a certainty that on the trip home we did not follow the 330 rule. The first day we drove as far as Macon, Georgia so that we could get home on Sunday, when the weather would be clear instead of Monday, when rain was expected.

My Memories Version 9

To tell the truth, I haven't really seen much difference in how Version 9 of My Memories Scrapbook software works differently from version 8. What I do know, is the transformation from version 8 to 9 was seamless. Since I made the move from a Windows platform computer to a Mac, most of the work I did this year was installing all my kits on the Mac. There were hundreds of them. It was a little bit more work to get them on the Mac, since I had to authorize each and every one of them. But it was definitely worth the work.

I downloaded and installed version 9 over the Thanksgiving weekend. My first project was of course, our Christmas card. This year, we introduced a new family, member, Champ. He has been a lively addition to our family. I simply designed the card using My Memories version 9 and exported it to CVS for printing on 4x6 photo paper. Easy Peasy. And that is how it has been using version 9 of My Memories. For a listing of what is new in My Memories go here.

My Memories Version 8

Right around Thanksgiving, My Memories came out with version 8 of their wonderful scrapbook software. I was so busy trying to keep up with everything else around here that one of their terrific enhancements got by me. A while back, the designers of MM gave us the ability to blur the edges of a photo. This year, we can now blur the edges of embellishments and imprints. Awesome.

You can also choose your color scheme for your program background. I prefer to work with a light background, but you can choose a dark or medium background.

One that I haven't tried is adding a PDF file as an image to an album. Another improvement is the ability to convert text to a shape. I haven't figured that one out yet.

Here is the link to what is new and improved in My Memories Suite v 8.

 The photo attempts to illustrate the blurred or faded edges of the embellishments, namely the branches and the star border.
