Loved your answers. Now, I'm interested in how photoshop works. I've heard a lot of things about it, some say it's complicated. Maybe you should teach the rest of us computer illiterate folks. We also need to have a 80's music sing a long night!
Thanks for playing tag, I loved learning more about you.
