Knock me over with a feather; the Israel Consulate of NYC has a blog?!
Just goes to show that Israeli blogging has come a long way since the dinosaur days of the early 21st century, when you could mention the word “blog” to most any Israeli and get a puzzled and confused look in return. Quite a mix of unexpected and interesting articles and topics too for an “official” Israeli gov blog.

This month’s PhotoImpact Goody is a SMP set of 6 custom paint brushes. Besides painting with brushes, brushes also make great tools. Included in this download are two POE (Paint On Edges) airbrush shaders to use on your image objects to give them a subtle 3d effect.
You can download the 200804-JenT.zip file from the Box.net Widget in my sidebar. If you are having any trouble or have a question about using this PI Goody, please feel free to use the contact form on my *About page. I’m always happy to help.

If you’d like to create your own custom brushes in PhotoImpact and save them to your EP, I’ve written up a short tutorial. Have fun!
Something is terribly wrong when the Chancellor of Germany, who is a strong supporter of Israel, will be boycotted by some members of the Israeli Knesset today for speaking in German from the Knesset podium and thereby offending Holocaust survivors. This same Israeli government two weeks ago refused to take down the mourning tent at, let alone raze, the East Jerusalem house of the family of the Arab terrorist who killed 8 teenage yeshiva students and where both Hizbollah and Hamas flags flew during the mourning period.
Someone pinch me.
