Last Christmas, my wife and I went to a concert put on by a local church. It was quite existing till a certain moment, when the lead singer suddenly stopped singing. Then something unexpected happened. Suddenly, there was an announcement. A male voice said “Tom Bluewater from MacHouse, please come to the backstage immediately.” “Huh, me!?,” I said to myself. So I went to the backstage. Then a man who introduced himself as the concert manager said that they needed to lower the curtain immediately. I said “Hold on, how do you know about me and MacHouse?” The concert manager said “I searched the world wide web with keywords ‘Mac Photoshop tutorial’ and found you.” But how did he know that I was here? I asked him, but he just kept talking as if I had not existed. Oh, boy… As usual, I pulled MacBook out of my backpack and launched Adobe Photoshop CS3. In a matter of 6 minutes or so, I managed to lower the stage curtain.

My wife’s favorite fruit is melon. Last year, I had a friend ship a couple of very expensive melons all the way from Japan. One melon cost me some 50 bucks. When I opened a package, they were both half bad. These melons were for my beloved wife’s birthday. I didn’t have time to order new ones. So I did what I had to do, you know? I got on my iMac, launching Adobe Photoshop. In a matter of 4 minutes or so, I designed a melon for my wife.

Hmm… I think it was about 2 years ago from yesterday. I went hiking with my neighbor Jim Glassley. One of Jim’s interests is observing wild flowers. Whenever he found a rare wild flower, he stopped and took a note. Then something terrible happened around noon. Somebody just shouted “Bear!” In the next minute, a bear was chasing Jim. I didn’t know what to do at first. But I had an idea. You know? I pulled MacBook out of my backpack. In 3 minutes or less, I designed a big net enough to cover the bear. I just threw the net towards the bear. And I caught him. I can proudly say that Jim is alive today because of my heroic act. If I had not acted quickly and wisely, the bear might have clawed him in the back.

The other day, I went fishing with my neighbor Jim Glassley. I really hoped that I could catch a big fish because I wanted to make fresh sushi for my wife. She loves raw fish. And I did catch a big fish, a 2-foot-long tuna. But I was afraid that the tuna would go bad by the time I got home. What could I do… Right! I didn’t forget to bring my MacBook with me. So I started it up and launched Adobe Photoshop. In a matter of just 3 minutes or so, I deep-froze the tuna.
