I had no idea that so many people disliked the fragrant green herb Coriandrum sativum until I stumbled upon I Hate Cilantro, a website dedicated to supporting the fight against the "most offensive food known to man": Cilantro. Now, I love coriander, as it [...]

In The Today Show's "What Were They Thinking?" segment "fashion icon" and "style guru" Isaac Mizrahi channels his inner Benny Hill to give advice to women on undergarments. The segment is actually called Plastic Surgery without the Plastic Surgery, which [...]

I think I got the answer to what would happen when Mozilla attempted to set a Guinness World Record for the most software downloaded in 24 hours: You can't get near their site. I've been trying for 33 minutes now, since the Official Start at 1 PM ET. It's [...]

I really should just write contest entries for a living. Oh, wait...I kind of do. That's part of being a Marketing Director. <br /><br />Anyhoo, I'm doing the Snoopy Happy Dance this morning because I got one I really wanted.<br /><br [...]

Shedworking in Murmansk

The BBC has a marvellous picture essay by Jorn Madslien called 'Murmansk's gorgeous garages' . Apparently, men enjoy a bit of 'me time' away from the family home in Murmansk and rather than heading for their shed, they head for their garage. These are usually self-built and, I was shocked to discover, do not always conform to local building regulations (although apparently there are amnesties for unregistered garages). Though plenty of work is done in them, I don't think they can truly be described as garden offices. Well worth a browse.

I love wooden toys and puzzles. They are generally either very simple, and in many cases very ingenious. The 3d wooden sphere puzzle falls into the later category. The puzzle has three separate planes connecting four chambers filled with colored wooden balls. It works much like a rubiks cube, in that if you make [...]

This morning we officially submitted our building plans to the city of Philadelphia and applied for building permits for both homes. We are expediting the permitting process and it will most likely take us 3-4 weeks to receive our permits from the city as long as there is nothing major wrong with our plans. The [...]
