Topless across America?

I first met Alyce Cornyn-Selby through my friend Paul--she was trying to get rid of her old hot tub, and would give it away to anyone who could get it out of there without wrecking her deck. I rounded up the 4 largest friends I had, bribed them with beer and pizza, and headed for her place with my 67 Chevy pickup. Note: if you're ever the recipient of such a request for a favor, let me advise you that for hot tubs, pianos, and hide-a-beds, there isn't enough beer or pizza in the world to make this a Good Deal for the helpful friends :-)

Alyce is quite a character--recently, she drove across the U.S. in her Bugatti replica, "Seno" (pictured). She even wrote a book about it. She's also the creator of The Hat Museum, and is helping us out at the Portland Rotary Club with our 2006 Road Rally. There's a video of a King 5 TV story on the Hat Museum at YouTube.

Venice advice

If Las Vegas' recreation of Venice doesn't cut it for you, and you want the real thing, Ed has a great post on his blog about what to see and do in Venice.

Good Day LA - Fox 11 Los Angeles

Fox 11 Los Angeles' Good Day LA show did a story on TheBigDay, featuring our customers Rob and Margot, who honeymooned in Costa Rica...and were terrific in the interview. Their story really communicated what it is that's special about our honeymoon registry: creating an opportunity for the wedding guests to really have fun giving a romantic, exciting gift that Margot & Rob will remember forever.

Here's the video clip of the show.

Benjamin at B-Day minus 4 months

The little guy (who's now got a name: Benjamin Leo) is about 5 months along, which I guess is 4 months before his zeroth birthday...and he's wriggling like crazy. The ultrasound tech had a hard time getting a few clear pics, as he kept moving his arms and legs in the way.

Here, he's showing an early interest in art, doing his Rodin "The Thinker" impression.
