I'm totally addicted to moo! Moo are small (28mm x 78mm) matte laminate cards printed in the United Kingdom that you can access with your flickr account.

They are totally cool. Mine arrived yesterday and I'm thrilled with how well they turned out. You can use them as business cards - some people even use them as trading cards - I haven't quite decided what to use mine for.

With Queensland now and truly buried in the past, I get to look forward to the next holiday. The mighty USA! As I'll be there longer this time, I need to start saving now, (18 months just flys by!!). I loved flying into LAX. The old control tower was one of the first things I saw when we landed and one of the last things I saw as I took off on my way home. It looked just as it did in the Here's Lucy episode I saw as a kid. It's now a restaurant and although we didn’t have time to eat there last time, I plan on doing it on the next trip.

Morning Sun

The Aegean all seems like it was years ago. (I was there this time last week). Funny how life falls into a routine so quickly. I'm still trying to live by my holiday motto - do something that you normally wouldn't do at home, do something that scares you, do something you enjoy etc. So today I braved a glass elevator. HATE THEM. I got to live another day. Is that a good thing?

when vegetables dress up

Vegetables playing dress up! Yup, dress up! This wonderfully odd little item, comes from Louise. I've met Louise twice. She's dating one of my work colleagues, Peter. From what I was told, Louise saw this and thought it would be a perfect gift for me. Quite an impression I must have left on Louise after two short meetings. Truth be known, I LOVE IT!
There's Wunda-Witch, Hia-Mato, Coco-annibal, Kool Karrot, Chief Turn-Up & Marshal T Apple (complete with a banana canon). It now sits in my kitchen (where else would it go?!) Thanks LuLu - it's now a treasured item...& no I'm not going to flog it on eBay :)

The Unisphere

What's my latest obsession? Far too many to count but The Unisphere in Flushing Meadow, NYC is top of the list. Why the fascination? Dunno really! It looks good, seems a lame response. It was actually built by US Steel for the 1964/65 World's Fair in New York, it's theme, Peace Through Understanding . The fact it remains where it originally stood impressed me. It's over 12 stories high is the largest man made earth in the world. The original fountains work periodically but when not operational it gives you a chance to get up close and personal with the Unisphere. I'll be heading there on my next NY visit.
