We’ve got some ideas, Brad.
We’ve got some ideas, Brad.
It’s about 9 a.m. (Mountain Time) and we’re getting ready to leave ourÂ BEAUTIFUL hotel room in Denver.Â On the way to Colorado, we Pricelined a room for $50 and got a crummy ‘suite’ that was just a little creepy.Â It had a kitchenette, but no soap for the dishes, so I just trusted that the dishes were clean and God would keep us safe as we ate our soup.
But, THIS place can be had by bidding a mere $40!Â For some reason, we’ve been here several times, and it’s great.Â A beautiful kitchen with Corian countertops and a dishwasher, gorgeous linens, free internet connection – it makes me weep with joy.Â Check out their website! http://marriott.com/property/propertypage/DENTKÂ
We had a great time with my parents – lots of delicious food, good company, and we even helped hang Christmas lights and put up the tree.Â Their neighbors have a crazy huge display that takes up their whole yard and draws visitors from miles around, so that was fun to see, too.
It’s too bad we didn’t have a camera, because there were many great things to see.Â You’ll just have to wait until we get home and I will draw it in stick figures.Â Thanks for keeping this going, guys!
You believe in fairies, don’t you? Clap to keep Tinkerbell alive! Clap! Clap!
So on talk radio when the host is too lazy to actually host, they have Open Mike time. Since Lloyd and I will be gone for Thanksgiving, it’s up to you – the fans and the lurkers – to keep this website going. (The internet connection is iffy at my folks, so I don’t know if we’ll be able to update.) I’d like y’all to tell us what you’ll be doing for Thanksgiving, or offer a good recipe or cooking tip to keep this thing alive until Sunday.
Thanks for your support!
Those of you unfamiliar with my work should know that I only make prototypes: meaning that I’ll have an idea and bring it to 87% completion (just to see it work), then give up.
I found an interesting idea online about a candle heater. (It’s at www.heatstick.com if you’d like to check it out.) I went ahead and ordered one because I thought , “Here’s a guy who had an idea and actually carried it through! That kind of dedication has to be encouraged.” However, it’s going to take several days for mine to arrive, so I made an extremely dangerous prototype.
His candle heater has three flower pots and many more screws and washers, and a well-made stand – not a green bean can with sharp, dangerous gashes on the sides. I played with it all night, using the infrared thermometer to check how hot it was getting. I also gave myself a royal burn after touching the bolt. I knew it was hot, and was being very, very careful, then some demon possessed my mind and said, “Touch it. Touch it now.” Then I did. Stupid.
Don’t adjust your screen, the picture’s just blurry.
(This post will make no sense unless you go to Brad’s site.)
Brad, I can’t believe how passe’ your idea is. People – swanky people – have been drinking from drains for years!
For all the sitting around and watching tv we did today, we did actually manage to get some things done.Â Â Lloyd finished up the map for Kate and John’s wedding, and I cut them out.Â (I have the big knife, remember.)Â I also made a cardÂ for a family from the Center who is celebrating the adoption of their three boys.Â The yellow text shows up better in person than in the picture.
I also planned on re-doing the caulking in the bathroom, but I bought the wrong color.Â Oops.
