Hats off to the 24.9 million military veterans in our free nation.
As a US Army Vet. Thanks and another Thanks to all those who served before and after.
Thank you to all of our vets out there! America would not be free today without your sacrifices.
Brad, one side note on this Pimpy Thursday (which is always cool and kick-butt). How does one add an avatar next to their name when posting a comment. Some posters have it and others (like me) don’t. What’s the trick?
John, you need a gravatar! http://en.gravatar.com
Thanks, Janine! That was easy. Now I just have to find a good picture of myself! :D
John, mine was taken by Joe McNally, as you can see there is no hope for me.
Oops wrong website.
Ken, tell him to give it back! We don’t see your smiling face anymore!
I can’t spell .com
Nice article for Scott in the Costco Connection. I think that Costco’s photo lab deserves some credit. I know Mpix is a sponsor but Costco’s quality I have found to be great also. You can download the printer profile for your local Costco and and your color will turn out fine! Their prices are also better. I recently got a 20×30 gallery wrap from Costco (shipping included) for around $80. The same gallery wrap on Mpix is $130. Mpix is a great lab and I’ll continue to use them when they have a service I need but Costco’s quality and pricing are hard to beat!
If you go to Costco.com, then the photo center, you can download software that gives you 20% off My Publisher photo books. The image quality is very good, and the prices quite reasonable.
Thanks For the Ideas Scott. Only if I get my wife to look at this blog, the mag, and my wish list I have on fridge. :)
