Signs

Although not the focal for today’s topic, when I am asked which movie freaked me out the most I often end up in the same place.   For some reason Signs impacted me in a way that most alien related shows do not.  I am not sure if it was the way it was filmed or just the way the space creatures looked but something about it messed with my head.  I still don’t like looking out my window at the shed in my backyard at night for fear I may see a creature standing on the roof.

Having bared my soul I will get onto my main topic.    My latest discovery was found when an email contained a story about 2 churches debating whether or not dogs have souls.  I thought the debate was funny and expected that it was not real.  To see the dialog and whether or not dogs do go to heaven you can view the snopes article on it.
 
Signs are everyplace and it turns out you can create them yourself via a few simple online tools.  Since discovering these websites I have been known to add a sign to the bottom of mail messages at work that have drawn a lot of positive feedback and laughs.  Most people think I recently learned how to use Photoshop but the fact is I still do not now much beyond cropping and making a gif transparent.
 
A few of my example works of art just for this blog…

Pretty fun stuff isn’t it?  I am confident that you will be able to create just the right sign now whenever you need it.
