Who knew that a brush could cost $100?


My uncle had a bath brush, new in the box, that he was going to toss into a garage sale for $3 or $5.  It was obvious from the packaging that it was 30-40 years old, and I thought he might do better on EBAY.  After some research, I found out these brushes are like the COACH or LOUIS VUITTON of the men's brush world.

Go figure. 

I'm not going to tell him about what I found out.  I hope it sells, and I can hand him a big, fat check!

I can't stop thinking about chicken pho tonight.  It's really odd because I never think about pho, and probably have had it less than 5 times in my entire life.

Do any of you get odd food cravings?  Do tell...

Help Molly find a home

It's been a few months since I first posted about Molly.  Molly is now a happy and healthy dog after beating heartworm over the last two months.  Molly is getting a bordatella vaccination and a micro-chip this week, and from here on out she is ready for a new home.

Would you please pass this to all of your friends?  Molly is ~4-5 years old and 50 lbs.  If interested, they can contact micdunn@us.ibm.com

What to do for Ron's 40th bday

Ron was talking about maybe having some cakes and games at Main Event for his bday.  When I was about to post it, he said he wasn't sure.

Does anyone have ideas for a cool birthday?  Since this is a significant bday, it seems like we should celebrate it.
