Well, I finally put together an entry for the bench cookie challenge08. I made it using my Mac with included software. The music is public domain. Enjoy!

That’s cool.
And…I sanded off two of my knuckles just a few days ago on my belt sander.
I’m getting Bench Cookies !!

Dan, you are one clever man!
Very cute. I, like Lisa, have the scars from the belt sander!

Using cookies as push blocks IS a great idea. I very also very impressed with the quality of the video, the title effects and I liked the music. Well done!

Thanks Don, Apple makes it easy. The software comes with the computer. It’s easy to use, all pictures and video are resized automatically for upload as you use it and there’s a direct link to auto load it to Youtube or other places with a mouse click. All the effects are already available. You just type in the text and it happens. I love my Mac.

Nice ideas with the bench cookies. And the video is excellent – nice work!
