This has to be the ultimate Lego Block – and proof that geeks can sorta grow up and marry.
This Lego Ring (Via – Color Me Katie) – You must check out her blog – It is so interesting and full of life – I love it.

Not much can be said about this ring – other then it is really cool and a great way to incorporate your life and love into one meaningful moment.

I went to a wedding recently and the groom built the wedding topper for their cake out of Lego and I loved it

Congrats to Thomas and Roxanne! – May you have many Happy Years Together!

and one alternative look at the Lego Ring – In use.

Sumo Bean Bag Omni Urban LoungeWell – everyone here knows I like the simple things in life and I happened to see a photo of one of these Sumo Bean Bags -  Omni the Urban Lounge – To Quote the Sumo Website:

This super-sized pillow by Sumo is the ultimate solution for all your relaxing needs. We’ve come up with 10 ways to use it, but some people say we lack imagination!

It’s a crash mat, lounge chair, loveseat or floor pillow to name a few, but the possibilities really do go on.

Sumo Beanbags are made from space age rip-proof nylon and come filled with top quality Sumo Beads. Omni is 4.5′ x 5.5′ and it only weighs 18 lbs!

This looks like something I want to try out and use. I can see using this sitting in front of the TV and watching my favorite TV Shows (CSI, Big Bang Theory or Monk) or Playing the xbox! But really I can see this as a comfortable place to Lounge listening to some good music (like the New NIN – Ghost Album)  and Pulling out the good old jounral and putting the pen to paper and writing my thoughts away. possibly drawing some Zentangles. Someday If I ever get one of these ingenious bean bags I will have to write a review of it. In the mean time – Check out their site and decide for your self.

Computer Controlled Beer Tap?

Beer tap PC

Ok I want one of these – Seems this older PC is now seeing better times – Looks like they recycled an old pc into a nice new PC with beer tap. I would like mine with Palulner. Mmm Good beer. So what is your favorite blend of Hops, Yeast, and Water? As I just mentioned one of my Favorites is Paulner Beir from German, I also enjoy savoring the flavor of a nice hand crafted Micro Brew like Golden Monkey from Victory Brewing, or even a nice flavor infused beer like Lindeman‘s (Love the Cherry, Raspberry, Apple – OK I love them all) MMM Beer – Ben Franklin Said it best – “Beer is living proof that God loves us and wants us to be happy.” -

Video: How to – Calligraphy

The following video "Calligraphy – Only You" makes doing Calligraphy look very easy – Too easy. I wish I could make my calligraphy look about half as good in twice the time. I believe the lettering style is Blackletter style. This really is a nice traditional style. I can see this style being used for wedding invitations, party invitations, basically anywhere you would like a stylish look and feel.

This style is also called German Gothic – Again a nice style In my opinion for a wedding invitation, or a fancy party invitation. I really need to practice this style – a very traditional style of calligraphy.
