Some of the graphics on this page were made by me and others were made by my very talented GG friends. Thanks to all of you who made such wonderful graphics for me.
I generally do not take requests unless you are one of my friends. You may make requests and I will get to them ASAP. Also, I like making surprises for my friends so please be sure ahd check my uploads to see if there is something there with your name on it as I don't go to your page to post them for you. Some of the surprises are posted directly to your gg page if the size is too large to actually upload onto this site.
Some of you have asked how the slow-motion graphics are created. They are made in a program called "Fantamorph". It is available online for a 30 day free trial if you want to give it a try. It is fairly user-friendly--just very time-consuming and, if you place one dot in the wrong place, you have a disaster. However, it is a fun program which is reatively inexpensive and makes wonderful and unusual graphics. Some of the images on my page which were made with this progrm were made by another person on this site and some were made by me. You can also take an image of your child (or grandchild) and an image of Spiderman or other superhero and the program will morph one face into the other over and over. Unfortunately, Fantamorph will not do glittered images. Thus, if you want an image that is animated AND glittered, you will have to export your moving image into another program such as Paintshop Pro and glitter it on that program.
My favorite authors are William Shakespeare, Anne Rice, T.H. White, Joseph
Campbell, Poe, T.S. Eliot, Cervantes, John Steinbeck, Ray Bradbury, Frank
Herbert, Isaac Asimov, Robert Holdstock, Tennessee Williams, and Franz Kafka.
My favorite plays are Camelot, Chorus Line, Jesus Christ Superstar, Man of
LaMancha, The Mikado (performed by D'Oyly Carte Opera Company), Cats, Les
Miserables, Riverdance and Phantom of the Opera and I was blessed to be able to
see them all performed on stage with the original Broadway cast.
As for music, I love Loreena McKennett, Joan Baez, Queen, Jethro Tull, and any kind of
Celtic music. I hate country/western and rap.
Photography is one of my hobbies and I also enjoy painting sci-fi and fantasy
If I could be anything in the world, I would love to be a vampire. If I could
do time travel, I would love to visit the Renaissance period or go back to the
time of King Arthur.
I like meeting new people and dharing ideas.
I love all vampire movies, goth movies, Deathnote, and most horror and sci-fi movies. I'm a "special effects junkie" and love to put them in slow motion and see how certain effects are achieved. It takes the mystery out but I like to know why the world wags and what wags it. If I could live anywhere in the world, I would go to Tintagel in England (the birthplace of King Arthur) or to Northern Scotland close to the North Sea or one of the lochs. England, Scotland and Ireland must be seen to be believed. They are the most beautiful places on the planet and one experiences an overwhelming sense of peace while there. I've been blessed to be able to go there numerous times since one of my friends was a flight attendant and got free passes for me and I have friends in Europe so I always had a place to stay.

Good day to you my friend, a wish for you
I send ... that you will have a happy day filled
with sunshine and good cheer. May your heart
be content ... come what may.
With today's busy lifestyles, it is alll too easy to put
relationships on the backburner and take them for granted.
Even though you may have every intention of spending
regular time with your loved ones, hectic schedules get
in the way and you end up running in every direction
except towards each other.
You know that your personal relationships are paramount
to personal fulfillment. Be sure to set some time aside
each week to rediscover the people that mean most to you.
Be along with that person, talk,enjoy your time together
and renew your relationship.
After all, in this life, your loved ones are what really
matters . Who you are is not determined by what
people may say or do nor by any one event in your life
but by what lives inside of you. Greet every new day with
purpose . Live in each moment before it is gone.
Hold on tight to hope with both hands and keep walking
forwards as life goes. Your belief determines your actions
and your action determines your results, but first you
have to believe. Have a great day!.
My dear Friend, I have a little message I need to
send your way, It maybe small, but it is sincere
Here from my heart today. You knew just what
to do, You knew just what to say, Thank you for
your thoughtfulness ... you brighten up my day.
Start the day off by saying " thank you" first thing,
to whatever higher power you believe in. Be thankful
and grateful for all that you are, for all that you have,
for all that you have experienced. Decide that today
is going to be a great day and make it one.
Remember it is your choice and always is.
Make every day count. Appreciate every moment
and take from it everything that you possibly can,
for you may never be able to experience it again.
I am grateful for your kindness, I am glad for all you do,
For being there when needed I send my thanks to you.
I pray God's Fragrant Blessings" for you on every day
In every way, this very day, tomorrow and always.
Hi, my friend, how are you? Just want to let you know I am just
dropping by today so I can say "Hello" to you today. How sweet
to have such lovely friends How nice to hear, "I am praying for you,
Thank you my friends, for being so dear For showing love and your
fervent prayers. I pray your days are special and your evenings full
of peace. May happiness envelope you and all your worries cease.
Let me just go ahead and update you on my situation.
What actually happend is that I had a stroke or heart attack in March
as I mentioned in "GG" earlier. The blood pressure keeps going up and
down and the heart has an irregular rythm and doctors say this can cause
another stoke at any time which could be fatal. I was on the machines
again on Tuesday and saw for myself the pressure going up from 148/85
to 187/96 in a matter of minutes and I was not doing anything at all.
Next instance it is down to 130/81. It keeps fluctuating all the time and
this is a real concern. The previous attack has caused some damages
to the heart and it cannot be rectified. There are now some abnormalities
to it. I am also not as agile as I was before. I tire easily and cannot seem
to concentrate too long on anything. I will of course do all I can to be here
as long as I am able to. I am trusting God to heal me. I trust with God's
blessings to get over this and be here for a long, long while ... excuse me
if I am not here as often as I was before but hopefully things change for the
better in due time. To believe this is to find the
strength and courage that lies within me. It is time to
pick up the pieces and begin again with hope. I
believe, wonderful surprises are just waiting to happen.
Do not worry about me and look at the positive. I value each and every
friendship here and of course I look forward to all your visits. I do not want
this condition to control me but I do want to continue the same way as
always. Life is meant to be lived happily and not let set-backs affect us,
but to push us to better days ahead.
