Friday Star Spotlight

On Fridays we will feature special projects, photography and ideas contributed by talented seniors along with information about the Internet.

Keep Smiling & You'll be a Star!

Well, it's "Black Friday" and some of us are venturing out into the biggest shopping day of the year. Be brave, be careful, and above all keep smiling!

Recognize the Liquify Tool, Photoshoppers?!

I'm getting a late start today, and decided to put Valerie Jagiello's images off until next Tuesday. Be sure and visit us that day. You'll see some terrific pictures.

So for today, some quotations about the biggest shopping day of the year.

"Advertising may be described as the science of arresting the human intelligence long enough to get money from it." ~Stephen Butler Leacock, quoted in Michael Jackman, Crown's Book of Political Quotations, 1982

"Whoever said money can't buy happiness simply didn't know where to go shopping!" ~Bo Derek

"Shopping tip: You can get shoes for 85 cents at the bowling alley!"

"I always say shopping is cheaper than a psychiatrist." ~Tammy Faye Baker

"Shopping is a woman thing. It's a contact sport like football. Women enjoy the scrimmage, the noisy crowds, the danger of being trampled to death, and the ecstasy of the purchase." ~Erma Bombeck

"People will buy anything that is one to a customer." ~Sinclair Lewis

"Anyone who believes the competitive spirit in America is dead has never been in a supermarket when the cashier opens another checkout line." ~Ann Landers

"The only reason a great many American families don't own an elephant is that they have never been offered an elephant for a dollar down and easy weekly payments." ~Mad Magazine

"Anyone who lives within their means suffers from a lack of imagination." ~Oscar Wilde

Anyway, if you go shopping on this very busy black Friday, be a Star by being careful out there. You will be safer if you keep smiling and laugh with the people around you at the holiday mess!!
