Wish you all and your loved ones a Merry Christmas filled with love, joy and peace.

Snickers In A Bottle

In: Fun Times

So you have a whole bag of snickers. Which quickly turns to an empty bag and a table top full of snicker wrappers. What do you do? Stuff em into an empty water bottle and you have a great art piece on your table!

Package, Packege or Pacakge?

In: Fun Times, Travel

Amazing, isn’t it! You want to sell your “Packages”. You prepare this fancy layout for your mailer and you get all the spellings correct except the spelling of your main product … the “Package” … three different spellings (well at least one was correct). And when you download the fancy PDF list of hotels, the [...]

Airplane Hit by Santa!

In: Fun Times

Seems Santa wanted to delivery presents on board aircrafts this year. Ended up crashing into one. Looks like he’s going to need a new sleigh!

Kissletoe Anyone?

Theatre @ Home

In: Fun Times, Technology

I just picked up a project this week for Ro. After using it for a few hours …it’s no longer for Ro. Watching movies at home is fantastic now. A 90″ screen compared to my existing 29″. I’ve gotta find a better wall to project on since the only spare wall we could find had [...]

Banta – for your Crooked House

In: Fun Times

Came across this sofa piece at Banta the other day. I immediately thought of this poem and the pic below of some real crooked houses that could use furniture like this. There was a crooked man and he walked a crooked mile, He found a crooked sixpence upon a crooked stile. He bought a crooked [...]

Supporting the Military

In: Fun Times

This video was forwarded to IT from the head of our military division with a clear and simple message… “Support us 24/7 … or else.”
