Off topic, but trip DVD is on line

Hi
In early July I went with family to Israel and Jordan. As a gift to my sister and b.i.l., I had about 50 or so pictures turned into a DVD, with music, by using a company I found through a Google search. They were wonderful to work with.

Although the trip wasn't Europe, if anyone is interested, the DVD is available on line for a few weeks at
http://www.meaningful-memories.com/Elaine

A couple of clues to the music used
The first sequence uses the "Indiana Jones" theme, because the pix are from Petra, Jordan, where some scenes from "Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade" were filmed.

A few of the other songs I chose are in Hebrew. One, "David Melech", is about King David (so are the pix, one way or another) and another is called "Mayim Mayim", "mayim" being the Hebrew word for "water."
I realize the family shots aren't that interesting to strangers, but I am so happy with the DVD results that I recommend it as yet another way to preserve travel memories.

oops, forgot to add a disclaimer

3 or 4 of the photos are NOT mine, they are free 'stock' photos I found on the internet, because they were better shots then the ones I had of the same locale.

And, all the music was paid for.

Hi elaine,

Thanks for sharing.

However, it will take me forever to download 17 MB.

yes, ira, good point, the download will take an especially long time if anyone has dial-up service.

I don't mean to overly promote this, but my web host has shrunk the file for dial-up viewers, so there is a second click option for that, if someone found the bigger download problematic.
