Default What's On Your Screen Saver !!!!

My son showed me how to do a split screen saver so on one side is a picture of the 3 Maine Windjammer ships in their fleet (we will be on the largest which holds 29 in August)..and on the other side is a picture on the cd cover of Keiko Matsui (her cd is entitled Moyo-great music if you would like to listen to something alittle different)

I change my screen saver once a week on Sunday after church..It reflects the mood I am in

What's on yours and how often do you change it ???

This is the background on my work computer it helps me understand why I work. I have been changing it often with other pics from my last cruise.

Work computer and home computer, my wallpaper is a photo of my kids.

My cellphone wallpaper, however, is the Red Sox logo.

Mine (background) is a slide show of cruise pictures, Disney trips, etc. It changes every 15 to 20 minutes, same as my screen saver.

My background is a picture I took in December from the Century cruise of the causeway in Miami lined with palm trees and sailboats moored and the Miami skyline in the background.
I change it whenever I take the next spectacular picture I can't live without.

Our screensaver is always cruiseships or beach shots, my husband changes them frequently. If we have a cruise coming up (we don't at the moment ) it will be whatever ship we are going on.
Meanwhile, the background is changed daily. Sometimes it's ships, or islands, sometimes even steam trains (his other passion). This week it has been shots of Pugwash Nova Scotia and the Cabot Trail, since we are headed there on a land trip in 2 weeks!

Default What's on Your Screen Saver

After all the complaining Keith and I have done abot Carnival, the screen saver he put ujp is of guess what? The Carnival Liberty along side of the Oceana. The shot shows how huge the Liberty is compared to the Oceana. He never changes it.

I would prefer a pic of Rio de Janeiro's Guanabara Bay, though.

My screensaver is the animated "Nature" selection from Windows Plus!
It's a rocky stream with leaves and such floating by. Very relaxing.

My desktop wallpaper is a collage of photos of both kids' baseball careers, from Grampa teaching them the proper batting stance to their current iterations as semi-pro pitcher and college coach. I make my wallpaper collages in Photoshop, usually set them up to fill the right hand two-thirds of the screen, with room on the left side for the program icons.

I change the wallpaper every six months or so, whenever I get motivated to do a new collage. I almost never touch the screensaver.

Kat, thanks so much! That is the very shot I would use, but the pic was too small, and when Keith tried to make it larger, it became very blurry.

He put up one that he took of the Century when we did the CM Sail of the Century. Very nice, and at least the Liberty is gone.

Thanks again for thinking of me.

Hey, Sherry! Thanks so very much! DH wouldn't put that pic on the desktop, but now it's on my lap top! I love it, love it!

I may never get to Rio, but I now I can dream about it every day and listen to the wonderful music from Rio.

Thanks so much, Sherry!

Like AR I use the MS Plus Nature screensaver - very restful.

My backdrop/wallpaper is a picture of just clouds that I took in Aruba a couple of years ago just aiming straight up with nothing else showing.

My background is a picture of my father in a Sterman biplane. He loved flying that thing. He left me a little over 5 years ago.

Why do people use screen savers? Monitors haven't had a burn in problem for years. To me they are just one more thing in my way.
