Now THAT'S a Knife

The guys Ethan Becker of BK&T and John Benner of TDI put their heads together to create the KA-BAR Becker(Poor Benner couldn't get his name in there? Maybe if he'd had on of these strapped to his side he could have.) Tac Tool. It smashes! It bashes! It prys! It hammers! And, yes, it even cuts – assailants in half

Top This

Jar Tops are the latest and greatest thing to hit food jars since Bandana's Banditos Jalapeno Mustard. Waite ... I don't think I've ever tried that. In fact I'm not sure how it got in my fridge. A set of Jars includes long-handled cap, an oil and vinegar cap, a cocoa shaker(?) cap, a creamer cap, and a sugar shaker cap. You can even buy the from the MoMA store.

Bookmark II

Great idea! I think I'll make my own with a giant rubber band and a sharpie.

Beer Bellty

If I liked the taste of alcohol and/or was an alcoholic(and was sober enough to do so) I'd buy/wear/use this.

Magnets for Dummies

This is brilliant! From what I gather just by looking at the photos, one would use the bottom half of the magnet hold an item in place. You would initially place the magnet in the "off" position. When you want to stick an object to a surface, (1) insert from below the magnet, then (2) press "on". And it sticks -- on the surface! When you want to take it off, flip to the "off" position. Clever! Love the functionality.

Chair Furnace

At first glance, I thought this was a chair; don't make the same mistake. It's an ethenol furnace.
Piet is a chimney-free indoor stove by Fredrik Hyltén-Cavallius that burns ethanol instead of wood. With a brass reflector, this stove gives off no smoke or soot and can be placed wherever convenient. There is a layer of rock wool fire insulation between the reflector and the outer ceramic shell, so Piet can be placed near walls or furniture.
Thanks MoCo Loco!

Hands On Logo

Here's my latest logo design for the Hands On missions conference at my church. I was looking to focus on touching so I went with the obvious hand symbol. However, I didn't want to go with the cliched hand-print that's overused and I've never seen executed well--ever. Here's how it turned out.

It's an art to be able to do this without being lame to the power of sales-y!

Southwest Airlines Recruits Kids for Child Labor

I've posted about Southwest before, because their the best airline IMO. And now I think I know why their able to get the edge on their competition. And at this point, I'd put nothing past them! Do you see what they are doing to these kids! As a pair of little girls walked the aisle passing out treats, I was able to snap a shot of one of them. Oh, the audacity! (Did anyone even know what this word meant before Obama got into politics?)

What a great way to get the kids involved in your airline(and just in general giving them something to do), out of their parent's hair, and make a buck for SW. I wonder what airline these two little girls will want to fly next time they travel? It's a shot in the dark, but I'd guess SW.

Might be a good way for SW to recruit too! :-)

Probably way to many egg jokes out there, but I was so excited to see these after almost giving up all hope that our two chicks(we'd raised since Easter) would ever begin to lay. I'd pretty much written them off and only "checked" for eggs whenever I'd change their hay -- not that they needed it for any reason. I was really beginning to resent them. It had been about a week since I'd changed their hay so I thought I should probably change it while I was down there feeding them. And when I opened the door ... surprise! Ten of 'em! Ten eggs right there! Jackpot! I couldn't believe it! After five months and 16 days, those two little babies laid 10 eggs in a week. It was a fine morning on Monday.

Fudge-covered Pretzel Sticks -- Yum!

Where could there possibly be an innuendo!? I couldn't eat this with a straight face!
Whaaaaaat??! :-)
