Welcome to PixacoLand!

Come one, come all....

A very warm welcome to Pixacoland where the residents all play happily together, often disagree but always in a way that they don't fall out. They are always helpful and supportive of one another and don't care whether you come from Scotland, Walesland, Ireland, England, USAland, or Timbuctooland! We all speak a similar language here but occasionally have different terminology for things. People have certain things they love and some are so colour blind they can only ever perceive things as looking good in black and white!

Some speak another dialect known as Photoshopish and are trying to help others to become conversant in it. Others have lesser-used dialects such as PSP (a form much-loved by its users) and we have seen a derivative of Photoshopish that continues to thrive known as Elementese. There is even a newer version of this with a wider vocabulary base!

People do all sorts of work in Pixaloland but use a variety of tools. Some use things they can carry around easily known as Compacticus Cameracus. At the other end of the scale, some take great pride in using Canonicus (L series) and find it hard to understand the users of Nikonicus who in turn often tease the Canonicus users but actually both respect the other because they have shown themselves worthy of producing equally lovely pictures of Pixacoland.

There are two kings in this great land but neither has ever asked for a penny in tax and so both are loved by all. Kind Davidus looks after everyone, is always warm and caring and helps his lyal residents as much as he can. King Stevus is the technical wizard of this land and is forever surprising and delighting his subjects with new toys to play with. He loves it when his subjects, who he thinks of as his own family, write helpful letters for everyone else to read and put them in the pretty little Review Postbox.

Every land as dreamy as this has stories that frighten but there are no ogres or hobgoblins here, just wonderful wizards, clever little PS Pixies.... and maybe the odd fairy or two :o)

So, now you have submitted your request for a pass, have received a letter to confirm your passport is ready and have collected it you are welcome to enjoy all the facilities as much as you want. A warm welcome from those who live and love Pixaloland!

Cheers,
Rob

Re: Welcome to PixacoLand!

Atually yes Dab, but that wouldn't have been so funny LOL. Actually I rarely drink coffee either. I am a big fan of Earl Grey so I drink that more than anything. I know a lovely lady in her 70's who imports absolute top quality tea from Kenya, only made with the tips so it is wonderful flavour. She uses genuine bergamot oil to make her Earl Grey, not the synthetic rubbish that Twinings and the ilk use. The difference is absolutely chalk and cheese so I always have a supply of this in my cupboard.

Best way to wake up in the morning IMHO.

Cheers,
Rob :o)

Re: Welcome to PixacoLand!

bergamot oil in your water to wash yer face allows you to get a great tan as well as it makes your skin photosensitive........ hence the reason a lot fo sun tan companies add it to their lotions..........and another bit of useless information!!!!!!!!

Re: Welcome to PixacoLand!

LOL Fiona, being of mixed race, the last thing I need is a way to get a stronger sun-tan LOL. I think I'll stick to drinking it rather than washing in it <g>
