Great Comic Characters

Just loved these adorable comic book characters.


They are originals put together by the comic creator. 


The characters are made from colored Perler Beads.


Once the beads are laid out into these awesome characters, they are iron-melted together.


Each of these was advertised for $20 (not the $15 listed at the top of the picture), but we got a deal. 


Together as a set, they are very cool, colorful, and fun to liven up any environment. 


I have them on a display at home and it’s nice to not be so serious all the time, and instead let loose with some creative juice.  😉

Awesome Northeast Fall Season

Fall.JPEG

Just wanted to share this awesome photo that my beautiful daughter, Michelle, took this last week. 


I love how it vividly captures the Fall colors, the falling leaves, and the changing seasons. 


The bridge seems to magically span the lush green before with the orange and tan hues of the after all under a clear light blue sky. 


The scene definitely looks like a cozy and happy time and place I want to be in. 😉

Wine Bottle Extraordinaire

Wine Bottle
I took this photo of one of the amazing wine bottles at an event last evening at Magen David Synagogue. 



Apparently, a very talented lady in there makes these special bottles. 



Unfortunately with the lighting, this picture does not near do them justice for how exquisite they looked. 



They were in different colors of lacing, with beautiful beads, hamsas, and other decorations, as well as pictures of our honored sages, and their names in hebrew over the photos. 



I asked facetiously one lady who was taking home a bottle whether she was going to drink it all that evening, and she pulled the bottle close to her and leaning in to me said, “This is going in my display case!”



And that truly is where these belong…they are amazing.



The wonderful lady that painstakingly makes these gave how many of them charitably so they could be auctioned for benefit of the synagogue. 



Aside from a wonderful soul, this person is very talented and should seriously start a business with these because they are awesome! 😉

Interned On The Aisle Of Man

Isle of Man

Recommendation

I found this amazing letter to my dad from 1940. 



He was interned during the war as a child with his mother in the Rushen Internment Camp on the Aisle of Man, a possession of Britain.



My father was only 12 years old, but already worked as a messenger for the camp Superintendent. 



Here is probably one of his first letters of recommendation for a job very well done. 



“On His Majesty’s Service”



How incredibly awesome for a child during World War II and the Holocaust. 



Love you Dad!

A WOW Wheelchair

A WOW Wheelchair

Absolutely loved the article and video in Bloomberg Businessweek on the Tankchair.

Brad Soden makes these amazing ruggedized wheelchairs for wounded veterans and other disabled people in need of getting around some rougher terrain.

They are customized for each user and cost about $15,000 each.

They are built on tank-like treads and can go up stairs, through fields, across streams, and over snow.

“Basically, it’s get off the couch and go enjoy life!”

They are tough and can last 15-20 years!

He first made one for his wife who was paralyzed from the waist down in a car accident and was having difficulty keeping up on a family camping trip.

Soden is truly inspirational–he produces these not too make money, but too help people.

“The body can’t keep up, so we’re gonna fix it.”

This is an awesome man making an extreme machine. 😉
