Sutree is a "How to" video library I've shared before. Recently the site has been redesigned and enhanced with new features. Although you don't need to register to you use the site, you will, if you choose to save favorites, which I thought was a useful feature. The site may redirect you to an alternate site that contains the actual video so it may take a few seconds. This link will direct you to the Graphic design section of the site which offers various tutorials in Photoshop many of you may find helpful. http://www.sutree.com/Learn.aspx?c=10024

Here is an interesting link for all those who feel the need to roast your own turkey. (I don't) Apparently you need to set the oven just right to have your turkey properly brown. I had a little trouble with the temperature knob (2nd knob), you have to click and drag it to the proper setting. Don't wait for anything in a hurry...it takes as long as it would in a conventional oven. Still, a clever element of viral marketing, although a tad boring for me ;o) Have a great holiday, everyone!
This award-winning photographer is apparently well known in Europe, the Dreams of Flying series caught my interest. I am impressed by the simplicity and creative approach of his set designs.
Yes, I'm going to start cheating and taking the easy way out. I want to explore to see how much I can push the capabilities of Weebly, OR just be lazy by taking the the quick update path, the UI (User Interface) appears SO easy to use, I'm recommending it to many of my friends and non-techie colleagues who wish to create their own sites. No experience is needed. It's free, has no advertising, and it should only take a couple of minutes. During the set-up the site may ask you to register your domain name for about 24./year (a reasonable price). You don't have to register a domain if you choose not to, just click continue, you can always register it later. I would recommend getting your own domain name, it would appear to be more professional and easier to remember. http://www.weebly.com/
While I retain a playful spirit, my 30+ years in the graphics and media industry, from web pioneer in 1993 to UX director, teaching and creative lead, have honed my design skills across print, web, and interactive experiences.
