A friend asked me what the difference was between an "Art Print"
and a "Print", when it came to paintings. 

Aside from the price, the major difference is that "Art Prints"
are numbered and signed by the painter, strictly limited in
quantity, and have investment value, because there are only
so many released in the entrie world. 

Regular poster prints are not limited in number. There could
be Thousands, or Millions of them, and they have no investment
value until their numbers have shrunk down to just a few, 
75 to hundred yeas later. 

Art prints are on fine canvas or special art paper, and they 
have the signature of the painter along with two numbers.
For example, 171/250 would indicate that you have #171
out of the 250 that were made. If you pick art prints by 
popular artists, that are already in demand, their value 
will always go up, because the numbers are limited.

I have one client, who sells genuine Art Prints, and also
occasionally some originals on
Have a look and get an idea what real Art Prints are all
about, and see why people use them to inflation-proof
their earnings. 

Len speializes in northern wildlife, but there are Art Prints
available in almost any theme.

Have FUN!

A young man named Murphy applied for an engineering position at an Irish firm based in Dublin. An American applied for the same job and both applicants, having the same qualifications, were asked to take a test by the department manager. Upon completion of the test both men had only missed one of the questions. The manager went to Murphy and said, "Thank you for your interest, but we've decided to give the American the job." "And why would you be doing that? asked Murphy. "We both got 9 questions correct. This being Ireland and me being Irish I should get the job!" "We have made our decision not on the correct answers, but on the question you missed." "And just how would one incorrect answer be better than the other?" "Simple," replied the manager. "On question # 5, the American put down, 'I don't know.' You put down 'Neither do I.'"
An efficiency expert concluded his lecture with a note of caution. "You need to be careful about trying these techniques at home." "Why?" asked somebody from the audience. "I watched my wife's routine at breakfast for years," the expert explained. "She made lots of trips between the refrigerator, stove, table and cabinets, often carrying a single item at a time. One day I told her, 'Why don't you try carrying several things at once?'" "Did it save time?" the guy in the audience asked. "Actually, yes," replied the expert. "It used to take her 20 minutes to make breakfast. Now I do it in seven."

From the Tech Support Pits: From: Marcus Re: PayPal fees Dear Webby, I know you are a PayPal user. My bank told me that PayPal was charging all kinds of hidden fees and was a lot more expensive to use than a bank merchant account. What's the real story? Marcus Dear Marcus If that was true, I would love to know which bank that is. PayPal has no hidden fees. Cost to the seller is 30 cents per transaction plus 2.9% for small amounts falling off to 2.2% for large amounts of money per sale. That's it. No hidden stuff like $20 per check deposit book, or line item charges or statement fees or account costs like at the bank, etc. For personal account transfers within the US and Canada, there is NO fee at PayPal, if you use your PayPal balance. I dare you to find a bank that will match that! If a credit or debit card is used, then the recipient is charged 30 cents per transaction plus 2.9%. That may seem high, until you compare it to what you pay for the same transaction, if you do it through a bank merchant account! With PayPal you don't have cute bank tellers flirting at you, but if cost is the only consideration, then the banks are not really competing, especially when international transactions are involved. The same applies to customers. If they pay for an invoice via PayPal from their balance on PayPal, there is absolutely no fee for them. Have FUN! DearWebby

Daily tip from Halloween Costume Safety Tips Regardless of if your costume is bought or homemade, please use a "homemade" face. As a volunteer with our local fire dept and a first responder, I find it sad that every year at least one child is injured by their costume. Instead of a mask, consider using makeup to create the face. A mask is often bumped out of place and blocks vision. Some masks also contain lead (from the paints) which can be inhaled. Other times small children have had them block their nose and mouth while sleeping and have suffered from a lack of oxygen. So instead of a mask, draw those whiskers and such on the face. If your child's costume has a tail, have them practice stairs with it. You may need to shorten it so that they don't trip over their tail. Don't let them ride their bikes with sandals, tails or other costume parts that can be tangled in the brakes or spokes of the bike. Also avoid materials that are highly flammable. Try to make it with pajama fabric if you can. It is marked as being flame retardant. One step too close to a Jack O lantern can result in third degree burns. Try to place some reflective tape on all sides of the costume and give your child a flash light. Avoid costumes that are of dark or black colors. Lastly, please don't use draw strings around the face or neck area. Use elastic string instead, and make sure it is loose and won't choke a child if caught on something. Source: Very sad experiences.

Working as a secretary at an international airport, my sister had an office adjacent to where security temporarily holds suspects. One day security officers were questioning a man when they were suddenly called away on another emergency. To the horror of my sister and her colleagues, the man was left alone in the unlocked room. After a few minutes, the door opened, and he began to walk out. Summoning up her courage, one of the secretaries barked, "Get back in there, and don't come out until you're told!" The man scuttled back inside and slammed the door. When the security people returned, the woman reported what had happened. Without a word, an officer walked into the room and released one very frightened telephone repairman.

Little Johnny wanted to go to the zoo, so he pestered his parents for days. Finally, his mother talked his reluctant father into taking him. "So how was it?" his mother asked when they returned home. "Great," Little Johnny replied. "Did you and your father have a good time?" asked his mother. "Yeah, Daddy really liked it," exclaimed Little Johnny excitedly, "especially when one of the animals came racing home at 30 to 1!"
