Just to share...

As a present this past year, I was given the gift of becoming a proud foster parent of a rescued baby elephant in Kenya for a year.  It was my favorite 2010 present!  If you are interested in how to adopt an elephant, check out this website
The above picture of an elephant was taken by my grandma in Kenya in 1974 and was digitally converted from slide to digital.  Do you have a lot of slides that are just sitting there gathering dust but you wish you could share them with your friends and family on Facebook?  If you want a project, you can purchase a scanner which actually allows to you to convert the slides yourself and upload them straight to your computer.  Be warned: it is very time consuming.  If you'd rather get it done quickly, call one of your local camera stores and they should be able to convert the slides for you.  Be warned: it is usually pricey. 

Whatever you decide, it is well worth it to preserve those memories. 

Happy Friday UT bloggers.  Enjoy your weekend!
