January 18, 2012 Son's Recommendations and some middle east culture

DH brought home some pics from work for me to work on.  Not just like "please, improve these, hon." More like, make this person disappear and put them in this picture and then remove this person and move the rest together.  On about eight pics.  And then make the backgrounds transparent on those and about fifteen more.  Sigh.  Fortunately, I enjoy a challenge.   While I can do it, precise selections are not my strong suit yet.  Remember, I am NEW at this.

Have spent some time reorganizing the blog so that it remains easy to navigate to the items that I want quickly. Not quite done yet but not much left to do.

My son called from college yesterday to tell me to watch  "Forks Over Knives".  Brilliant!  It was on my list of things to do anyway, so I went ahead and watched it. Wonder how he came to watch it???? Then, for good measure, I went ahead and watched "Fat, Sick, and Nearly Dead".  Another good one.  We have Netflix and these are both available to watch instantly.  DH came home in the middle of watching Joe help Phil get started with his juicing and says he will do ten days with me!  Ok, he was manipulated.  It is in exchange for the photo retouching I am doing for him.  Did I mentioned that I do not get paid well for my hobby/addiction?  LOL   I tried for sixty days, but he said "Joe said to start with a week or ten days, I heard Joe. That is what Joe said."  So, ten it is.

Watch for the before and after shots in the days ahead.

Then Son called back to say that Jimmy was gone and Malik and Walid (his new roomies from Saudi Arabia) had prepared a traditional Saudi Meal for him and he really liked it.  He told us to give him a head's up and next time we come he will ask if they will do a meal for us.  He was unsure at first when they moved in.  I told him to take advantage as it is a great opportunity to learn something.  He can learn about their culture, their country, and a little bit of Arabic.  Sounded fantastic to me.  I met them briefly and they seem extremely nice.

Ok, back to my responsibilities, learning, and day one of ten of a juicing fast with dh. This will be great for both of us.
