Raining today so i have been playing around with some filters in my Photoshop. I find the filters great for effects at times and they're a plus when making up Wallpaper or Slide shows. A few examples of Filters here i have used on Photos.

That's some fine Police work there Lou.
Early in July my son purchased several Bicycles for his children. Last week one was stolen from the front of his home and he contacted the RCMP in Port Aux Basques giving a description of the Bicycle. A week goes by and he decides to go to the Store where he purchased it from to get another. The guy who owns the store chats with him and they are over heard by another customer who asks what the Bicycle looks like. My son describes it and the guy says he has one identical by his home. He found it a week back and reported it to the RCMP and knows the kids who dumped it there. My son goes over to his place and it's the same one. Now i know a Bicycle worth less then $200 is not a major crime but after been reported lost and one reported found you would think the RCMP could of at least figured it out all by themselves? Yup,That's some fine Police work there Lou.

ZURICH (AP) — It must rank among the easiest fires ever to put out.
Zurich authorities say police and firefighters were called to the house of an elderly woman early Thursday after she reported her television set was burning.
When they arrived, they discovered no signs of fire or smoke.
They found instead that the TV was tuned into a German station that in the early morning hours aired the constant image of a fireplace.
