My parents have just decided to be buried at Ft. Snelling National Cemetery.  I was surprised since whenever we visit the cemetery in Iowa they always point out their headstone.

Luckily, I have never had an occasion to visit Ft. Snelling Cemetery so I decided go through it this weekend.  It was roller coster of emotions for me. To see all the headstones, and be relieved to see all those that lived a full life and to be sadden by those that died in war, living too short a life.

I have WWII, WWI, Civil War and Revolutionary War veterans in my family.  So to all veterans -  dead and alive - thanks to all of you!

Photographic Manipulation

Israel requires advertisers to disclose Photoshopping of models

Regardless of your views, after one has snapped the shutter button, about whether you feel manipulation of a photograph is right or wrong, you may find the following article about Israel's new laws passed in March of this year, now dubbed the "Photoshop Laws" an interesting read.

Computer editing sees regulation, and models must be certifiably not underweight
