software working

This morning I got my Pinnacle software working again.  The people at Pinnacle said that it's best to click on "encode entire movie everytime."  That's where my problems began.  I unclicked that box and now I can burn DVDs just fine.  :)  For those who also use Pinnacle and run into problems, here's what I also noticed:  you *must* have either a photo or title page before your video, otherwise you won't have sound on your DVD.  This is more larger videos, small ones under 30 minutes seem okay without the title and photo.  

Don't leave Pinnacle open all day.  For some reason it causes the footage and burning to mess up.  Just close out of it and restart it again.  Everything will work fine then.

Other news:  I'm 11 minutes into Anneli's afro perm video.  I finished her hair washing part and now she's beginning to get her hair cut.  Her hair is bra-strap length, and Carmen explains that she is going to cut it 4" all the way around.  

I will be having help to move the station and chair to my salon studio today.  Then I will call the plumber.  :)  I moved the shampoo bowl down already and had a backache for the rest of the day.  So I must have helpers!

where to buy PVC capes and shiny haircutting gowns

I placed an order for a large black PVC cape and a shiny pink stylist's gown from

http://stores.ebay.com/Capes-By-Paula_Capes-and-Gowns_W0QQcolZ4QQdirZ1QQfsubZ3560130QQftidZ2QQtZkm

and received them both today.  I must say that I'm entirely impressed with the quality and tailorship of the cape and gown.   Besides the cape, gowns, and other goodies found in Paula's online store, she can custom make you anything, so don't be afraid to ask.  (I asked for the gown to be bright pink, and I got exactly what I wanted.)

I hope to use both for a video sometime in early 2008.

Other news (I have quite of bit of news for today!  see previous entry for today as well):  I went to have my old permanent wave machine perm solution analyzed today, but unfortunately the guy, Rocky, told me that he would need at least a liter for an analysis.  He said that he would be unable to make the solution that I needed (I wanted it also to have the same odor) at this point.  He did say that if he does think of something, he will let me know.
