Katy Perry - Firework Video [Best video I have ever seen!]

Dear Katy Perry - Your music and message inspires and teaches the world. Thank you for producing the "Firework" video.

Mitch Goldstone
President & CEO

Katy Perry Firework lyrics the third single of the album "Teenage Dream" by Katy Perry

Do you ever feel like a plastic bag.  Drifting throught the wind.  Wanting to start again.  Do you ever feel, feel so paper thin.  Like a house of cards. One blow from caving in

Do you ever feel already buried deep. Six feet under scream.  But no one seems to hear a thing.

Do you know that tehre's still a chance for you. Cause there's a spark in you. You just gotta ignite the light. And let it shine. Just own the night.  Like the Fourth of July

Cause baby you're a firework. Come on show 'em what your worth. Make 'em go "Oh, oh, oh!".  As you shoot across the sky-y-y.

Baby you're a firework. Come on let your colors burst.  Make 'em go "Oh, oh, oh!". You're gunna leave 'em fallin' down-own-own.

You don't have to feel like a waste of space. You're original, cannot be replaced. If you only knew what the future holds. After a hurricane comes a rainbow. Maybe you're reason why all the doors are closed. So you can open one that leads you to the perfect road.

Like a lightning bolt, your heart will blow. And when it's time, you'll know. You just gotta ignite the light. And let it shine.
Just own the night. Like the Fourth of July. Cause baby you're a firework. Come on show 'em what your worth. Make 'em go "Oh, oh, oh!".  As you shoot across the sky-y-y. Baby you're a firework. Come on slet your colors burst. Make 'em go "Oh, oh, oh!".  You're gunna leave 'em fallin' down-own-own.

Boom, boom, boom. Even brighter than the moon, moon, moon. It's always been inside of you, you, you. And now it's time to let it through. Cause baby you're a firework. Come on show 'em what your worth. Make 'em go "Oh, oh, oh!". As you shoot across the sky-y-y.

Bby you're a firework.  Come on slet your colors burst. Make 'em go "Oh, oh, oh!". You're gunna leave 'em goin "Oh, oh, oh!".  Boom, boom, boom. Even brighter than the moon, moon, moon. Boom, boom, boom. ven brighter than the moon, moon, moon.

I'm dreaming of a cheapskate ChristmasBy Christine Romans, CNN [Mentions]


Gold prices are at record highs, and silver is at a 25-year high. This is not the year for cuff links or a gold watch. So how about giving your honey golden memories? Raid the attic for old photos of great-grandparents and ancestors and have them digitally restored. (It's a great gift for grandma and grandpa, too.) Find a long-forgotten photo from your courtship and tuck it into a shadow box with a concert ticket or baseball rickets or something you can enjoy together.
Better yet, digitize those boxes of photos under the bed and in the closet. can do it in a couple of days, and then you can spend the holidays hooting with laughter over your old hairstyles (and his old girlfriends.)

Online Photo Storage Keeps your Photos and Memories Safe

Advantages to Online Photo Storage

Your photos are precious. They document important events or the fondest memories of your life. The digital photo age allows you to take exponentially more photos than the film era, because you can instantly see every photo you take, and immediately dump the bad ones without thinking twice. Digital photos also allow you to store photos on your computer for quick and easy access. But, what if something happens to your computer? Hard drives crash all the time. Your computer is also vulnerable to theft, fire or flood damage, or other bumps and bruises along the way. Thankfully, online photo storage assures that your photos will always be safe, no matter what happens to your computer. There are a number of ways to take advantage of online photo storage options in your online photo account.

Upload Photos for Online Photo Storage

Uploading photos to your online account is one option for online photo storage. Once you log into your account, click the "Add Photos" button on the right side of the page to manually select photos saved on your computer to upload to your account for online photo storage. You can choose to upload the full resolution or lower resolution versions of your photos. Once the photos are uploaded, they are stored online for free forever, as long as you log into your account at least once every six months. Online accounts are free and easy to create. Besides online photo storage, uploading photos to your online account also allows you to order prints and thousands of fun and creative photo products.

Photo Greeting Cards Take Personalization to the Next Level - Personalize Your Photo Greeting Cards

Photo Greeting Cards at Online take personalization to the next level by allowing you to use your own photos and words on your photo greeting card. Photo Greeting Cards are perfect for any occasion or event, and come in a variety of sizes and styles. Customize your photo greeting card to give you much more flexibility, superior design, and a more enjoyable experience than a store bought card. Photo greeting cards are also often less expensive than store bought cards, and are much more meaningful to the people you give them to, serving as keepsakes that they cherish for years.

Photo Greeting Cards are Available for Every Occasion

Photo Greeting Cards are perfect for any occasion or event, whether it's a holiday card, new baby announcement, thank you card, or something else entirely, like a poker party invitation. If you don't see the category you are looking for on the list below, don't worry! We also offer blank card templates for you to create whatever card design you would like, using your own photos and words combined with our beautifully designed themes, backgrounds, and clipart.

Photo Greeting Cards Come in a Variety of Sizes and Styles

Photo Greeting Cards are available in various sizes and styles. Depending on the event or occasion, different sizes and styles may be more appropriate to choose when creating your photo greeting card. For example, you might want your holiday cards to be the traditional 4x8 flat photo greeting cards, but for Valentine's Day, you probably want to give your sweetie a 5x7 folded photo greeting card

Andrew Cuomo Acceptance Speech (11/2/2010)

Using Picasa and iPhoto

Greetings Fellow Photographers!

Today I want to give you a little information about the two most popular free photo organization and editing tools: Picasa and iPhoto. iPhoto is a Mac-only tool that comes pre-installed on all Mac computers. Picasa is a tool developed by Google that you can download and install for free on your PC or Mac. They also have a web-based version, but today I will refer to the software version. Read on for more info about each tool, as well as a new summer photo contest!


Picasa lets you organize, edit, share, and order photos from your PC. Once you install it, Picasa will automatically import your PC's photos and organize them in the same folder structure as your hard drive. View slideshows, create collages, make movies, and geo-tag your photos to save the location of the photo within the photo's file data. You can also order prints and fun creative products of your photos directly through Picasa: select the photos, then click "Shop" at the bottom. Choose "LifePics" as your Provider and enter your account email and password. Picasa will place the photos in your cart so you can complete the order.


iPhoto lets you organize and edit digital photos on your Mac. It is very intuitive and easy to use, and has a lot of cool photo editing tools and filters to use to enhance your photos. The latest version stores photos by events, and also uses facial recognition technology to tag and group photos of specific people. You can also sync photos from iPhoto to your iPhone or iPod, or upload them to your account by selecting them from your "Photos" folder on our upload page or by exporting them from iPhoto and importing into your account. After you upload photos from iPhoto to your online photo account, you can order prints and other fun photo products like photo books, cards, calendars, and gifts.
