Waterlogue and Valentine's Day Ecards (from 'Light Reading')

No point in writing at length about the Waterlogue app for iPad and iPhone; here's the blurb:

You don’t need to paint to create beautiful watercolor images—Waterlogue captures the essence of your photos in brilliant, liquid color.

...and here's the link to the app.

And now let's take a look at some images.

I photographed some cutlery in a cafe last year and I ran it through Waterlogue a couple of days ago and then Tamara and I added some text to make a Valentine's Day card for Quillcards.


And here is a cockerel that I photographed at a city farm a couple of years ago. Again with some text from Tamara to make a Valentine's Day card for Quillcards.

I like the play on words with the double meaning of comb.

I combed my hair for you and Quillcards

  • Add images as favorites to use later.
  • Set up email alerts for birthdays and other occasions.

The free trial has limited features like only being able to send to one person at a time - but that 'should' be suitable for Valentine's Day!

You can send as many ecards as you like during the trial period, so it's well worth trying out.

This is my first post with the upgrade and I'll report on it in a little while as I get used to the new version.Here is what Daniel of Red Sweater Software has to say about his product:Browser-based interfaces are slow, clumsy, and require you to be online just to use them. Browsers are perfect for reading web content, but not ideal for creating it. If you're serious about writing for the web, you need a desktop blog editor.

Business For Britain Is Concerned With Business For Britain

This report in the New York Times today

LONDON — Is British business fretting about the risks of the country drifting out of the European Union? Or does it crave a looser relationship with Continental allies, one free from meddlesome regulation?
The answer to that question remained unclear Monday after a newly formed group of business leaders argued for a renegotiation of Britain’s membership terms — echoing the policy of Prime Minister David Cameron, who in January promised voters a referendum on whether the country would remain in the Union.
The new group, called Business for Britain, is intended to counter the intervention of pro-E.U. business leaders who have warned of the dangers of Britain slipping out of the 27-nation bloc and its single market of 500 million people. A statement released Monday to announce the group’s formation was signed by about 500 executives.
I think this opinion in the New York Times article is interesting:

Never much attracted to the idea of European unity,…

Resistance Is Futile

Some of the trains that run from London Kings Cross to Cambridge divide at Cambridge. Part of the train goes on to Kings Lynn and the rest stops at Cambridge and does the run back to London. Perhaps it picks up other carriages coming from somewhere else, I don’t know but it seems likely.When you get on the train and before it sets off, there’s a public announcement announcing how the train divides. It explains that the train is composed of eight carriages and that passengers wanting to travel beyond Cambridge should ensure that they are in the front four carriages.The rear four carriages are of course nearest the barrier, so we choose to sit in one of those carriages if for no other reason than that we don’t have to walk so far to find a seat.So there we are and the voice comes over with the announcement. And then there is a pause and then a voice tells you what carriage you are in. So we hear ‘Six of Eight’ or ‘Seven of Eight’ – and every time I hear it I think of Star Trek, ‘Three o…
