My old Wacom is simple and cool

My Wacom Graphire4 has customizable express keys, tablet wheel and a pressure-sensitive eraser and cordless battery-free pen. Hello friends and Zazzlers! Last December I bought a new computer and I am still updating the software to it. I gave this buy a lot of thought. I did not want to spend much, I do not have a lot of money these days! But I wanted a good machine. Finally, I decided and bought ASUS and picked Windows 7 because I have very old software and I was afraid it would not install on Windows 8. My main concern was Freehand because I have lots and lots of works created with Freehand. And I still use it often even if no updates to FreeHand have been made for over years.

Modern Square Wedding Invitation - Chevron Chat  by  modernweddings View other Wedding Invitations at  Zazzle.com Hi my dear friends and Zazzlers! Yesterday an Irish lady friend of mine got engaged! I am really happy for her. It seems the guy asked her to marry him 3 times. Finally, she accepted! I am happy for her. And today I just got an email from a friend of mine who has decided to get married. Love is in the air, I believe, LOL! She and her longtime companion went out for a special Valentine's dinner to celebrate such a special decision yesterday. The overall number of married couples has declined in Portugal over the years and people get married later. Maybe because other kinds of living arrangements are now more socially acceptable or maybe because girls and boys that go to college want to have a career before they settle down. Maria João and Mário have been living together for 10 years. Now they finally decided to tie the knot! It's always a great joy to get th
