Randsco "Shout Outs"
Many folks have helped Randsco.com. Some donate money, some use our Photo-caption Zoom, popINFO and other scripts in a creative way, some hire Scott for CSS or XHTML coding or site design, some back-link to Randsco and still others help with website development and/or content.
This growing list of websites showcases and says "thanks" to some of those people.
FEATURED DONOR: The "Red Dirt Emporium", located in the historic "Bricktown District" of Oklahoma City, made a donation toward - and is using - Photo-caption Zoom Version 3. The Red Dirt Emporium was founded in 2007 and has a goal of introducing visitors and locals to the best that Oklahoma has to offer. They specialize in Oklahoma resources, art, music and other items that celebrate Oklahoma
Since they are largely responsible for the "Thank You" section of our sidebar and this "Shout Outs" blog, it's fitting that one of the first shouts should go to Oklahoma's Red Dirt Emporium.
What's the story?
Not only was their contribution unsolicited, but they didn't require any support to get it deployed.
One day, a donation email arrived and I thought, "Wow. Cool. I really should find a way to say 'Thank You' to them (and others who've helped Randsco) ... I know I've been meaning to ... I just need to DO IT!"
So, I made this section and (slowly) have begun populating it with some of the many people and companies that have - in some way - supported or helped Randsco. It's provides a formal way of saying "Thanks" and helps to promote their website (in a Search-Engine-friendly kind of way).

Oklahoma: The State of "Red People"
Did you know that the name of "Oklahoma" comes from the Choctaw Indian words - "okla" (meaning people) and "humma" (meaning red)? Oklahoma literally means "red people". Ha ... now you know!
It's fitting that a State with such rich and diverse history should be celebrated and it's part of Red Dirt Emporium's mission. Inside the water-front store, you'll find products that are unique and which celebrate Oklahoma's heritage!
On their products details page, you'll find Photo Caption Zoom. If you hover over the picture for each item, it'll "pop" open and some of those images have a descriptive caption.
Here's a quick run-down of some of the unique items that they carry:
- Oklahoma Dirt Shirts and Aprons
- Stick Horses
- Suffed Animals of Oklahoma
- Oklahoma Wildflower Seeds
- Prairie Gypsies Foods
- ... and more ...
