  • fabby "rcfan2" - Peaceful retreatI was given this series by my sister when I was going through chemo. I read one book after each treatment and it was such a wonderful gift. I made myself wait for the next installment or I'd have raced through the entire series! It may be peaceful in Mitford but that doesn't mean nothing happens. There are people who are salt of the earth, irritating ones, funny ones, sort of like most communities. I hope you treat yourself to just the first book and get hooked like I was. I remember it fondly and I read them 7 years ago!
  • J. Peplinski - Impressions from a very inexperienced newbieI must let you know up front that I am VERY inexperienced in the digital art field and just got my pressure-sensitive Craft Tablet last week, which also came with Adobe Photoshop and Corel Painter (both Essentials versions). So I'm just learning all three programs and feel like I have barely scratched the surface, but perhaps somebody reading this might be considering dipping a toe in the water and my inexperienced opinion might come in handy.

    First off, Sketchbook is VERY easy to jump in and use right away. I haven't done much other than doodle yet, but figuring out how to switch tools and change the properties of each tool (color, line thickness, opacity, etc). The symmetry tools are very cool and I can imagine they would make for some amazing graphic designs! The program is extremely responsive to the touch of pen to tablet; apparently you can decrease the responsiveness if it's just a bit too precise but I really like it that way. I jumped in and made some cool calligraphy scripts which would be really fun for embellishing photos or artwork for invitations or other printing projects. It also supports the "erase" function if your pen has one, though so far I can only get it to erase EVERYTHING at once like a digital eraser, and not softly bit-by-bit like Corel Painter - although maybe this feature is available but I haven't found it yet.

    The strengths of this program really seem to be sketching and graphic design. I must say I think that Corel Painter feels like a stronger painting program (as one might expect); I can't seem to find as many brushstroke and layering options in Sketchbook so I enjoy that more for watercolor-type projects. And Photoshop seems like a stronger photo editor, again as one might expect from the name and reputation. I'm really glad to have all three programs and all the options at my fingertips because they all have great strengths over one another. I haven't tried to use any of them without the pressure-sensitive tablet, which is what makes them all so unique and fun, so I'd highly recommend that.

    As a newbie I would say TRY IT if you have any inclination toward sketching, graphic design, or digital artwork. You'll find Autodesk Sketchbook very easy and fun, and who knows, maybe you'll create the next great art sensation!
  • imperiale - A new investing conversationMindful attention to words – whether they are selected to convey meaning or to obfuscate – can unearth the true intentions of their author. Investing Between The Lines reminds us of this and proposes a framework for evaluating the language contained in shareholder letters, a key conduit for guardians of equity capital to communicate with its owners. In this sense, Rittenhouse’s book is an important one, since correctly discerning the values and priorities of management through their words can be good for your wealth.
  • Renee McClennon "book worm" - Absolutely love it!I purchased this a few months ago and I cannot tell you I love this thing. I was about to buy an IPAD and I kept looking at the options and what made the difference was the fact the Samsung could plug into the computer and it wasn't as complicated as the IPAD. I have an IPOD and so many times I'm ready to have someone stand it up so I can do a field goal kick with this thing. I love this product and highly recommend!
