I posted this in on Facebook, and I don't like to repeat---but this one deserves some PR double duty. Here's the link, and I've enclosed a paragraph on the App that caught our eye (it Victoria Goode's eye who forwarded it to my eye)


"EVERNOTE (FREE) The company advertises this as a personal digital assistant, and it’s an apt description. Evernote is a traveling notepad that synchronizes with desktop and browser software (also free). Use your iPhone to copy an image, take a photo, record a voice memo or jot down a note, and it appears on your computer (and vice versa). It also recognizes your written text, within limits. The free version stores a fair amount of information, but for $45 a year, you needn’t sweat the data limits."

Dashil Jhaveri and Teraneh Zarififar are quite the joyful couple, and why wouldn't they after being part of our runners-up Photo Contest winners. They made time out of their hectic schedule to mosey on over to Welch for me to snap a shot. Both expressed how much fun it was to submit their pictures, and wouldn't mind if we had the Contest AGAIN next year. Dashil mentioned how they and their friends sometimes get together and take pictures of everyone jumping---that's right---just jumping (no doubt for joy)!

Welch Photo Contest winner Emilee Flynn looking smart with her brand new backpack (and also nalgene bottle and a few other goodies). Emilee was a gem to meet me outside the Daily Grind in the BRB on a sunny afternoon. Excited to win the contest, she was all all-glow to receive her new stuff. I was going to keep the backpack for myself, but that wouldn't be nice.

Emilee Flynn's "Walk Like An Egyptian" wins the Welch Photo Contest. Congrats to Emilee. She gets a bag of Welch goodies. And with all the prize money-----OK----so there's no prize money, just prizes, but they're all her's.  And in her bag of goodies she gets a pencil, some paper----OK----none of that stuff, we went longball.  She gets a spanking backpack and some nifty other stuff. Now that she's won this round she moves onto the Nationals and a chance to-----OK/OK---alright, there are no "Nationals," this is the end of the line. I'd like to thank all the judges for their time and observant eyes, also I want to thank Nancy Roderer (for "getting the vote out"), and for my co-pilot Victoria Goode who helped steer the "good ship Photo".

Job well done to Emilee. I have to stop now, on happy occasions, I get all ferklempt. (who wants to bet I spelled it right) (I did spell it right).

So there we are on the Friday before Halloween, when Barbara Watkins makes her little innocent e-mail announcement about how she brought us some goodies. Well, the rest of the day sounded like everyone was taking a pilgrimmage to Mecca because all I heard were footsteps in-and-out of the ILL office. I myself had to stop at TWO pieces of carrot cake, and then had to rationalize why I shouldn't have THREE. All I saw were folks loading up on lemon squares, carrot cake and Halloween candy! Talk about supersized joy! Below you'll see how the carrot cake was being devoured. She had the nerve, the sheer audacity to bring in not JUST an entire PLATTER of carrot cake, but LEMON SQUARES to boot! Holy Willy Wonka!


A mountain of innocent Lemon Squares......before the carnage set in.


Icebergs that break away from Antarctica aren't this big!


I'm begging you Barbara Watkins, don't make me increase my bike commute because of your devilish culinary feasts. Have you no mercy?! Kidding aside, it was all tooooooo delicious for words. Thanks again, Barbara. She refused to have her picture taken, but that's OK----I've got the evidence.


Now about Christmas............
