Chez- I have done copies of things for you already, but you'd possibly be best having people email the photos- not sure if you can copy from flicker due to copyright etc.

Gab- already got you copies of them!!

Chez- you can burn things easily to disc and print them off easily from disc.

Very Happy

Chez- forgot to say that I'm doing a photo DVD (never done one, so may be slow) with music and all photos BUT you can do them as a photo movie on the machines (Kmart Dick Smith etc) that will play on DVD.

Hopefully mine will work and be ok!! affraid

In the words of Harry...... "where's Gail? Where's Sarah? " confused

Ancy, your whole concept of Dvd sounds great,not sure how you are doing it but I know I will enjoy it when it happens...also burning things easily to disc..maybe not so easy for some people???

Jack and Luke bought us an ipod docking station for our birthdays and it has just decided to stop...bloody hide...hope it wasnt anything to do with continuous Huey...stupid thought...of course not...anyway cannot get it to work...maybe we will give it tonight to rest then attack again in the morning...new battery might help...poor thing has been on overdrive also the fact that I am sooooo tecnologically challenged might have some thing to do with it..anyway if all else fails...maybe I should read the structions..as Jack would say

The Champ and Cat are working on invites for 19/1/08???...hopefully we will get them out soon


lots of love xxx

Hi Chez- goos to see someone has finally posted a new message!!

Any photos you save to your computer (in my photos) organise them into folders (go to FILE- NEW- NEW FOLDER then name it IE USA TRIP), then single click on the folder and look to the menu options on the left hand side of the screen

- You should see "copy to CD". Select that,

then it will say (below bottom right of screen) "you have files waiting to be written to the CD".

Click on that icon, put disk in drive, click on files to burn,

click on "write these files to CD" and follow the wizard prompts.

Good Luck!! Think I have given the correct steps (from memory)

Otherwise, just take you memory card straight to the place, do all the photos you want to print and select the option to burn them to disk there. They will always help you go through it all if you aren't confident. xxx A

Thank you Ancy,darling...you never know I might become computer literate yet...I will follow directions and see how we go...

I spoke to Shaz on the weekend...We went to Lionel Ritchie at Bimbadgen on Saturday...and I told her I had mentioned she didnt have access to a computer and she was pleased as she didnt want everyone to think she didnt care...not sure about excuse from everyone else...maybe they didnt have a good trip and dont want to talk about it...I think she is hoping for a laptop from Santa as I said this would be good practice for her skills.

After a night off our Ipod Docking station decided it could put up with my music once more.Tony also turned it off at the plug and turned it back on and it took off...but I have realised that I forgot to put my Christmas music on it so will have to get Smartys instructions out and try to do that too...I really will end up being such a wizz with these things...Hopefully dementia wont kick in too soon and I'll forget it all...I am making sure I keep popping the fish oil caps...actually I went to turn my computer on at work this morning and I could not think what I had to do...it took me about half an hour to remember...maybe it has started to take hold...I have already told Smarty that I am all his when that happens...he might end up with both of us(sorry Cat..hope he warned you).if i havent put Tony in a nusing home already...he has been warned first sign of a dribble and he is in and I am going to be like old Jacks wife with the short skirt and tight top and the quick visits

Don't worry Chez- we can keep info on here- as long as you remember to log on and read it all.

I would love to hear from others too- doubt people would have had a bad trip. I keep meaning to say I loved Vegas and NY- would love to go back to NY and explore it more.
- you asked ages ago about favourite places.
- I've enlarged photos of Vegas and made the black and white to hang up at home- I keep looking at them remembering how great it was!!

Hey Gab, where are you guys?? cheers

I had a great time and I think the most enjoyable thing was that I was on holidays with everyone I love! I know that sounds cheesy, but its true. It was lovely to share experiences, rather than having to tell you all when I got home.

Also, just found out that Ancy got the job she went for - so a BIG CONGRATULATIONS!!! to her. We are very proud of you. cheers

CONGRATULATIONS ANCY!!!!! WELL DONE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Sorry have been slack not posting. I don't really have any photos to show as most of mine are of Scarlett &Veronika!! Though I did get some good ones of the casinos in Vegas but everyone probably has those. I know what you mean Bec it was great to have everyone there, not many families would do that. I know people who didn't go to their family members wedding in Western Australia because it was too expensive!! Smarty is a lucky boy!

What heroics has Brad been up to? I missed that intelligence. Please explain.

Gab, Mum and Joe had trees come down on the house during the hail storm last Sunday and Brad and his mates dropped everything at the pub and went to help them. Very good samaritans!

The Champ- if you read this (which you need to get back on board with Cat) I haven't used the powder Mum gave me of yours.

Ha Ha, Gab!! lol! I like that!!!!

I was always told don't smile until Easter.

I must say- thanks to Edna and Marg, I can do a hell of a "death stare", and you can too, i'm sure!! I do have a number of kids scared of me (confirmed today by another teacher- yr 12's too!! Woo-Hoo!!)

I personally take the "firm but fair" approach, and be consistant. It does depend on the cohort though........

Relax people I am back. To the powder thief well done on the job, I had meant to congratulate you in person but I am a slack ass. Congrats your awesome and should be very happy with yourself . If everyone comes round for a swim around xmas count me in because I wouldn't mind trying out my new bombs, especially if people are going to be tanning by the pool. Bec got you xmas card it was great and it was the only one I got apart from blockbuster and L J Hooker, so all 3 of you are on my good book. Mum you're already nuts. I also have job news, It looks like I will be working in George Street early next year around Feb 4th. So that should be a good change. Cats job is also going well.

Merry Christmas Everybody santa

Hey Mouse, I don't have your address. I got your card as well Becco it was gorgeous - thank you! You shamed me into sending cards this year as well -helped by the fact that I won 3rd prize at Scarlett's preschool. It was an awesome 3rd prize - huge hamper. Anyway it contained a pack of Christmas cards so thought I may as well send them. Sorry Mum, Dad, The Champ and Cat - you missed out Hahahaha!! rendeer
Wasn't sure if I should send them to one friend though as her dog was accidentally hit and killed by my other good friend a couple of weeks ago and the dogs on the cards looked just like hers except black!! Conrad thought it would be ok though and as he is a social etiquette expert I went along with his opinion!!! scratch affraid

Glad you all liked the card. Ancy's fine photographic skills at work again! Mart, sorry to hear the sad state of affairs with the Christmas cards. Maybe you have to send them to receive them!?

Thanks for the offer Chez re: the pool. Sounds great and we might take you up on it.

Gab you should go by the opposite rule, If Conrad says one thing do the opposite. Bec how dare you, you little Bitch I am still settling in, I haven't got time for cards. PLUS I do my cards after xmas when there on sale and I reply to those who sent me one. Looks like only Mr Hooker & Blockbuster are getting cards this year. santa

Okay, it's my turn. Sorry, guys, for taking SO long to check this out again. The Champ has been on me for weeks to have a look.

So the wedding was pretty amazing-- due only to the fact that all of you were able to be there. I can't tell you how many Americans made comments about how fun the Australians were, usually in the form of "They really know how to party!"

I'm really looking forward to Christmas next week, so hope all of you can come up and enjoy the pool with us. Granted, it doesn't "feel" like Christmas yet (especially with the non-freezing temperatures), but that's not something a few Christmas CDs won't fix.

Much love to all,

"The Champess"

Hi everyone.....I feel ashamed I haven't written for some time but I do enjoy reading others comments.

So pleased with my little Ancy getting the job she was after...CONGRATULATIONS BABY Very Happy ....ALSO CONGRATS TO The Champ....that should be easier going into the city rather than the North Shore.

Cat...we are all looking forward to seeing your photos...have very few (almost none) of you in your wedding dress.
also I hope Xmas will be happy for you being somewhere hot and very different to what you are used to (if ever the rain stops and we have a summer).

Chez was a sensation on Dr. Phil...must have chosen the best sort in the room to zoom in to.

Sounds good to me to have a swimming holiday but with my visitors here until 11th Jan. don't know if it will be possible..looking forward to the 19th though.

Will have my new car soon and then The Champ and Cat will have their own wheels....going to arrange a super spit and polish so they will be happy taking delivery.

Gab how are your beautiful babes?...looking forward to seeing you all too.

Sent a birthday card to Jacko yesterday but I believe they are jet-setting again...what a life!

Sharon David and the boys...Hope you are well.

Lots of love to all and a Merry Xmas
