This Is It!

Can you believe that this ole Granny went to see the new Michael Jackson movie This is It at the 10:00 p.m. showing last night? My hubby and some of the girls went. I loved it! Doesn't matter what or what MJ did or didn't do, he was an amazing musician. I can't believe that I don't even have any of his music. So, my daughter lent me one of his top hits CD this afternoon and I listened to it and reminisced about the movie while decorating Halloween cookies. There were some tender moments in the film and you could hear an audible sigh from the audience. I sat next to my daughter Angie during the show and she was on the edge of her seat for most of the movie. She would clap with gusto after each song. Of course I joined in too! MJ was and has been her favorite musician all her life. I think she secretly had a crush on him and wanted to marry him! Anyhow ... I'm sadder now about his death since seeing the film. And to think about all of the hours and hard work that went into rehearsals and all of the dancers, musicians, and singers who never got to perform the concert 'live'. And how I would have LOVED to attend a 'live' MJ concert. He really knew how to put on a show!

Thanks for the advice on getting an External Hard Drive. I'll go check them out at Costco.

Hey ... I loaded MDS on my computer and anytime I import a photo, my computer crashes. Any help there? Do you think it's a memory thing?

I'll take some pics of my cute Halloween cookies. Dang, they took a LONG time to decorate. Guess I'll have to figure out how to stamp on them. Would be a lot quicker. Couldn't find the frosting tint and almost resorted to using Re-inkers. Think it's toxic? Didn't do it ... found the tint hidden way back in the cupboard.

Got to get to work on a lesson for Relief Socity on Sunday. Ironically it's a talk given by Elder David Bednar about Cyberspace and using our time better by using the phone, sending cards, and in-person visits. He does say that Cyberspace has excellent good uses, but we need to use our time wisely and be careful of how much time we spend on the internet and video games. Good advice!

re: MDS crashing... how many fonts do you have on your computer? I had 2,000 (I know, insane... hey, free font, I'll download...). I took all but about 450 out of the "fonts" folder - kept them in another folder, cause you just never know when you'll need them. Now MDS is working fine. You need to be careful as some fonts are needed by windows, microsoft office etc...

A couple a years ago at convention, one gal was swapping cards for stamped cookies. She said she had used the re-inkers and said they were non-toxic. Cookies looked very spiffy.

Hi Linda,
I want to go see the MJ movie too, I was just amazed that they had so much footage. I just wished he could have had a normal life, and lived to be an old man, he was very talented.
Not sure on the refill for the cookies, can you imagine your teeth afterwards? ha!

We had a 5th sunday combined lesson on that talk with all the adults and youth. It's an amazing talk! Really makes you think.

Glad you didn't poison the cookies, mother.

That's an excellent talk by Bednar. That should make for a good lesson. Good luck.
Also, don't feed my kids any cookies. I don't need them ingesting any toxic stamp supplies. :)

Good luck on your lesson. It'd be interested to stamp cookies, look into it for us. :) Glad you enjoyed the movie.

Linda, the font issue is MDS has trouble reading the fonts. Patches a coming (so I heard). I had same problem. You look so beautiful. I don't think you need to lose another pound. You are beautiful because you are you.
