I Love You! Card from

I Love You! Card from

Love is love. A card is only a snapshot of your current emotion and desire. Use this card to express your feelings. This one will work best with flowers or a ring or a nice dinner. Valentine's Day is coming up soon; buy a box of cards if your heart can't settle on one person.

President Obama: Memorial in Arizona

I thought the President gave a a very uplifting message in Arizona at the memorial. I just wanted to share this as it definitely moved me. It was the kind of speech (it wasn't a eulogy, right?) that I think we all need to hear just about now.

O'Portland T-shirt from

O'Portland T-shirt from

It's never too early to plan for Saint Patrick's Day! Well, maybe this may be a wee to early, but I figured I'd clue you in to the O'Portland design I have at the Doug E Shirts site at Zazzle (associate link). This design is on a bunch of products. Here's an example:

I created the design when I first moved to Portland, Maine. But I discovered that there's about 16 Portlands in the United States. So this design can work in a lot of places! Please check it out and let me know what you think...

Portland, Maine's Largest City bag from

Portland, Maine's Largest City bag from

When I moved to Maine, I first lived in Portland. It's a really cool place that faces the a lot of the same problems as other small cities in the Northeast. I was surprised that, with a population of almost 63,000 (as of 2007), Portland is Maine's largest city.

Thus the beginning of this design that incorporates one view of Portland's skyline against what a lot of people think of when they think of Maine - a moose.

This design is available on the bag, white tees and aprons. Please take a peek and let me know what you think.

Elevator Blogs: The Elevator Preservation Blog

The Elevator Preservation Blog, started in May 2009, is a great blog for elevator historians and enthusiasts. This is from their About Us page:

"The Elevator Preservation Blog is a unique website that’s dedicated to sharing with you photographs, pictures and information relating to old elevator equipment. The authors who write here have a great passion for old elevators and a passion for preserving the interior looks and features to the time the building/elevator was first constructed."

It's a blog that is run by volunteers (they are always looking for more!) and they hope to provide information that will aid in the repair and preservation of these wonders of the past.
