One of the interesting things about all design processes is the number of consequent decisions that you have to make before you set pen to paper [metaphorically speaking].

The decisions don’t need to be consequent if you are just gonna play around, and that is certainly one strategy, but if the materials are expensive, that can be costly and reaching a satisfying conclusion is a hit-and-miss affair [well, most design projects are to a certain extent].

So…I have been doing lots of reading, watching videos and ‘window shopping’ for kilns and glass and tools…etc etc.

As the total cost of setting up a glass workshop is huge I obviously have to buy a bit at a time …. and it got me thinking about ancient Egypt. In ancient Egypt the tools were relatively simple, and I have always made jewellery with simple hand tools, shunning machines as I like quiet…

Stutter-Stepped

Good morning to all of my readers out there. I just wanted to let you know that, at least according to me (the only one who counts), this is humor appreciation week. That being said, I hope you enjoy today’s selections. Funny Stuff!

The first site I will recommend today is called “How to tell if your cat is trying to kill you!” This site explains some of the strange things that your pet cat does। And tells you the ulterior motives behind those actions. This is one of the major reason that I do not have cats. The way that they stare, and then pretend to love on you…….Scary!

Another site I like to peruse is Say No To Crack. this site is filled with comics, funny stories, and everything else that can possibly put a smile on your face. The link that I am including in this blog is one of my favorite images. It turns the world of psychology and behavior on its head. If you have ever read of a guy named Pavlov, you will understand.

That is it for today. Do me a favor and try to smile at everyone you meet. The nice people will smile back and try to make friends. The bad ones will think you are psychotic and stay away from you.

Fallen Over This Morning

Well, as you know, every day I post strange sites that I have seen in my travels across the digital landscape. Today is no exception. I have decided to focus on humor this week, see is how everyone needs to learn how to laugh during this stressful time of year. Of course, I refer the the most dreaded day of the year, April 15. Tax time! If you have already completed your taxes, please wipe that smirk off of your face. Not everyone can be as perfect as you! For the rest of us, here are a couple of sites that will tickle your funny bone. Guaranteed to give you a few moments of joy in a time when you need it most. Put down the 1040s and just relax for a minute with me.

The first site that I stumbled on today is “How To Tick People Off!”. This site details twenty things that you can do to make the world a worse place for you coworkers and friends. From number 16″ Staple all pages in the Middle, to number 27: Asking people what gender they are, this page has tips for all of us.

Another page is an old classic: Girls are Evil! This wonderful example show that girls are really evil. With concrete proof that no one can argue with, the mathematics of these equations are truly awe-inspiring. We all know that girls are evil; at least know we have proof.

Well, there you go. Two more sites to put a smile on your face. Good luck finding deductions out of that shoebox of receipts you call your “files.”

Where I’ve Landed Today

Well, here I go again. Sorry about not posting a blog yesterday. I was really busy listening to all the songs and watching the videos from justhearit.com . Today I have another couple of sites that I have stumbled.The first on is called You Should Have Seen This. The tagline for this site is “Things You Should Have Already Experienced On The Internet Unless You’re a Loser or Old or Something” It gives you a list of the top 100 internet memes, with links to each. Whether you want to see the dancing baby again, or a drunk Jeff Goldblum, the links are here. If you have time to kill, this site will help you waste quite a bit of it.

The second site of the day is The Elegant Universe. In case you head had been buried under a rock or you have been speeding too much time on a previous recommendation, The Elegant Universe is a series from the television show ” Nova” This one is for the smart folks. String theory, the beginning and possible ends of the universe, it is all here. Spend some time here if you want to spend the wasted hours of surfing to a good cause. Or, if you just want to look smart to your coworkers.

That is all for today. Make sure you check back in tomorrow top see what other interest or weird sites that I come up with.

Things I’ve Stumbled Upon

I was sitting at work today, with nothing to do as usual, when I decided to check out Stumbleupon.com. I had been there before, but never really paid any interest to what the site actually includes. Normally, I use Digg to find out what is going on in the world. But, today there was absolutely no work to be found. I figured that I would check out a random website using the stumbleupon search. Knowing that there may be one or two readers of this blog, I have decided to inlude the links to the website that I visit. Sometimes they are weird or wacky. Other times I my find them to be disgusting or downright scary. But, all of these sites are out there in the wild, just waiting for you to find them.
The first site that I found was Photos That Changed the World. Their motto is “Sometimes Breathtaking. Sometimes Horrific. Each photo has the power to inspire.” This site has eighty photos, with a new one added each week, that has changed the way humanity perceives itself. Each picture contains a hyperlink that can be clicked to go to the article about the photo. Very informative and educational.
But, for the people who just want to relax there is Just Hear It. This website is now in private Beta testing. The premise behind this site is simple. Type in the name of the band, or song that you want to hear and it will find it for you. You can then create your own playlist for any occasion.These are two websites that I found today that could be of interest to you. Everyday, I will “seek out new life, new civilizations”, or at least websites for you to enjoy. If you find any strange or unusual websites that you think would interest me, just include a link in you comments to these posts.
