Spelling Lesson

I just came upon this link on another blog, and it is too cool to pass up.

How do you spell Hannukah?

Thank you Mel, for the clever video.

I'm still here

Sorry for the long gap in postings. There are many reasons, Thanksgiving, knitting, failing to take pictures and being embarassed to admit it. Making jewelry, knitting, not working on the Sandy KAL, knitting more hats and some Christmas gifts for my co-workers. There are ever so many reasons.

I will try to get the photos up.

I will try to stay up-to-date.

I will see that the inventory at work is done correctly.

The office Holiday Party went smoothly. We were at a delicious italian restaurant in Andersonville called LaDonna. We had the whole restaurant for the afternoon. Everyone was pleased with the table gifts, and their secret Santa gifts. The biggest hit of the afternoon was the "Official, Unofficial Bird-X Calendar." Alison and I produced a monthly calendar with adaptions of famous paintings featuring our products for each month. Because we violated so very many copyright laws, I'm shy about posting any examples, but imagine "American Gothic" with bird repelling spikes along all the roof lines. Get the idea? Thank you PhotoShop.

Thanksgiving was also an especially tasty feast. I took the advice of Easy Entertaining with Michael Chiarello on the Food Network and made two small turkeys instead of one big one. So very much better. They cook in less than two hours and are very delicious and juicy. The turkey carcass soup was also great. But then again, it always is.

It was so good, that I made one for the Christmas weekend, so that Faith could have some, because she was under the weather at Thanksgiving.

Speaking of Faith, she is the lucky recipient of my first pair of socks. What fun. I used some super neat yarn that I picked up in Madison when we were there for Drum Corps. It looks like it is randomly printed, but when you knit it, magically patterns appear. I will post a picture, promise.
