  1. Poor Seerose, it must be hard to be so very polite as to not mention another's "slip of the keyboard" What a champion, and all round really good artist. Pixey: Lambo's are indeed a fine way to zoom and swoop about on the interstates. Sad you had to leave the Jag back in "jolly old." But to be honest, a good old American/Japanese SUV is a splendid way to "blend" into the local scene, as the hordes of autograph hunters would be such a bother.
  2. Pixey Once again a grand thing. The great idea of making an orange peel surface is inspired, ( were you aware that in painting cars that there is a condition, really, called "orange peel"? Though not as pronounced as your excellent example if you look closely at almost any modern car finish you can detect the "condition" under the clear coat. As a small aside, Dr. Ferdinand Porsche would be a wee bit miffed if he thought the Italians had absconded with his design and sports car from Germany. Nits an picks aside great job on the details of the car and the colors used. Very much like I would imagine you own personal car must look after a quick scrub and polish by you detail person then pulled round in to the clear Florida sunshine.
  3. Pixey First, my condolences for you loss. Second, a very huge Thank You for your hard work on the contests, all the while keeping up a impressive amount of PDN projects.
  4. You guys and gals crack me up. Great stuff A Small sample of the good things ....... Laughter
  5. I can see why you got a bit miffed at the computer for failing to do what you want. But it will all get sorted , I'm sure
  6. beep, beep TEK-KNOL- O GEE And last, in appreciation of nightnurse's hysterical entry above... Two blonde engineers were standing at the base of a flagpole, looking at its top. A red headed woman walked by and asked what they were doing. 'We're supposed to find the height of this flagpole,' said one, 'but we don't have a ladder.' The red headed woman took a wrench from her purse, loosened a couple of bolts, and laid the pole down on the ground. Then she took a tape measure from her pocketbook, took a measurement, and announced, 'Twenty one feet, six inches,' and walked away. One blonde engineer shook her head and laughed, 'A lot of good that does us. We ask for the height and she gives us the length.'
  7. I laughed at this one..........WAIT a Minuet ! , do you mean..... Yeah Computer stuff IS complex ..... And just for my favorite Seerose, (just as you all suspected)....

Maxilian LOL especially the sign ..."will be "shoot" on sight Oh, Seerose perhaps Eli is only getting clear, how long ago 18 was On Ward to better humor and I hear welshblue is buying the whole class Jelly Babies - if they like his next joke 1- 80 Year Old Couple Texting Something for all you romantics An elderly couple had just learned how to send text messages on their mobile phones. The wife was a romantic type and the husband was more of a no-nonsense guy. One afternoon the wife went out to meet a friend for coffee. She decided to send her husband a romantic text message and she wrote: "If you are sleeping, send me your dreams. If you are laughing, send me your smile. If you are eating, send me a bite. If you are drinking, send me a sip. If you are crying, send me your tears…….. I love you." The husband texted back to her: "I'm on the toilet. Please advise." 2- Nine Important Facts to Remember As We Grow Older: #9-Death is the number 1 killer in the world. #8-Life is sexually transmitted. #7-Good health is merely the slowest possible rate at which one can die. #6-Men have 2 motivations: hunger and hanky panky, and they can't tell them apart. If you see a gleam in his eyes, make him a sandwich. #5-Give a person a fish and you feed them for a day. Teach a person to use the Internet and they won't bother you for weeks, months, maybe years unless you give them your email address. #4-Health nuts are going to feel stupid someday, lying in the hospital, dying of nothing. #3-All of us could take a lesson from the weather. It pays no attention to criticism. #2-In the 60's, people took LSD to make the world weird. Now the world is weird, and people take Prozac to make it normal. #1-Life is like a jar of jalapeño peppers. What you do today may be a burning issue tomorrow. la fin
  11. 1 An elderly woman goes to the Wizard to ask him if he can remove a curse she has been living with for the last 40 years. The Wizard says, 'Maybe, but you will have to tell me the exact words that were used to put the curse on you.' The elderly woman says without hesitation, 'I now pronounce you husband and wife. 2 In answer to the question, "Hot enough for you?" 3 [picture edited with PDN] John Bradly, a young university student, was on the side of the road hitch-hiking on a very dark night and in the midst of a big storm. As it got later and later and still no car came by. The storm was so strong he could hardly see more than a few feet ahead. Suddenly, he saw a car slowly coming towards him and it stopped. John, desperate for shelter and without thinking about it, got into the car and closed the door ... only to realize there was nobody behind the wheel and the engine wasn't running. The car then started moving slowly. John looked at the road ahead and saw a curve approaching. Scared, he started to pray, begging for his life. Then, just before the car hit the curve, a hand appeared out of nowhere through the window, and turned the wheel. John, paralyzed with fear, watched as the hand pulled back through the window. Shortly thereafter, John saw the lights of a bar appear down the road, so, gathering his strength, he jumped out of the car and ran to it... Wet and out of breath, he rushed inside and started telling everybody about the horrible experience he had just had. A silence enveloped the pub when everybody realized he was crying and shaking ... and wasn't drunk Suddenly, the door opened, and two other men walked in from the dark and stormy night. They, like John, were also soaked and out of breath. Looking around, and seeing John sobbing at the bar, one said to the other. 'Look Frankie ... there's that idiot that got in the car while we were pushing it !'
  12. Pixey I am amazed by this work. The lines, color, "flow" of the piece, the reflection pattern of the gems, the engraving so subtle but so integral to the whole look of the piece. Then the soft background patterning repeating the forms back into the picture. You have done a great one here. Oh and I like it too.
  13. Pixey, Great Image. You did a very " Glassic" rendition of some cool drinks for a happy, good time.
  14. From anyone but you welshblue, You we understand tootles, mon frer
  15. OK if you are going to limit my "likes" I'll, I'll just show you...... Take This! 1- 2- A guy took his blonde girlfriend to her first Football [ American- for our soccer friends] game. They had great seats right behind their team's bench. After the game, he asked her how she liked it. "Oh, I really liked it," she replied, "especially the tight pants and all the big muscles, but I just couldn’t understand why they were killing each other over 25 cents." Dumbfounded, her boyfriend asked, "What do you mean?" "Well, they flipped a coin, one team got it and then for the rest of the game, all they kept screaming was... 'Get the quarterback! Get the quarterback!' I'm like...Helloooooo? It's only 25 cents!!!!" 3- The Cynical Philosopher... Just read that 4,153,237 people got married last year, not to cause any trouble but shouldn't that be an even number? Today a man knocked on my door and asked for a small donation towards the local swimming pool. I gave him a glass of water. I want to die peacefully in my sleep, like my grandfather. Not screaming and yelling like the passengers in his car. If I had a dollar for every girl that found me unattractive, they would eventually find me attractive. I find it ironic that the colors red, white, and blue stand for freedom until they are flashing behind you. Did you know that dolphins are so smart that within a few weeks of captivity, they can train people to stand on the very edge of the pool and throw them fish? You're not fat, you're just... easier to see.
  16. Gee sorta like "old" home week, here in the land of the PDN. Speaking of old, I'm certain I'm old but in PDN years I'm only about 2 Does that count......never mind
  17. Darn technology the rhymes of my youth commin' back........?Why?? sometimes reading English isn't all its cracked up to be
  18. AHH Shucks, your too kind. So here, for you
  19. Best use of PDN I have seen. You have created a art piece. Congratulations
  20. MY New exercise program is off to a good start
  21. With your skill(s) I bet you don't miss a thing, very often. The problem seems to be a " lack of competitive-comradery " as in days of old. [insert wise old wizard here] The beauty of the challenge is seeing others work and being able to comment/complement/critique and back it up with your Star Vote. But perhaps the "fire of creativity" has burned out and only a small glowing ember is all that remains of the once great illuminating conflagration! OR I could be totally out to lunch and just too doofy to know it
  22. Why Thank You Joshua. Though activity is lacking on this thread, perhaps your post may get the creative juices flowing once again. juices flowing once again. flowing once again. flowing once again. once again. once again. again. again. IS it just me or are we alone in here? here? here? here? here?
  23. Really like the girl in the bath. The tile background with the color fade, floor tiles in perspective, bubbles -wow! and the great portrait UH... I mean main character is great.
