Toomer 's Corner - The Rant

I have never been a college football fan. Being a former Band-ee, I attended enough college football games for a life time. My closest friends who despise sports patiently put up with my chatter about the sports I do like: Hockey, La Mans, Petit La Mans, Formula One, Indy Car, Baseball, NFL, Soccer and the X Games.

However, if I ever needed a reason to dislike college football, I official have found it. The no account redneck, immature, douche bag that killed the trees on Toomer’s Corner is my reason. I know lots of Auburn fans and lots of Alabama fans. Most of them are members of my family. So I know that not all AU and AL fans are douche bags. The old axiom that one bad apple will spoil the whole bunch is true. And it sucks.

We need all the tree’s we can get on this planet. Global warming, ozone, smog and haze are all cleaned by trees. Oxygen made by trees. Paint their rock or steal their flag. What nimrod kills old growth trees? Oh 62 year old Al from Dadeville.

To top off that feat of superior brain power other fans have come up with really cleaver immature things to say about Auburn and their trees. Really? Are we adults? Maybe. Mature? Fare from it. Soon some else will be trying to take out Uga from atop of the UGA clock tower. Give me a freaking break!

People, love your school. Alumni Support your Schools. Bleed Blue and Orange or Red and Black or Red and Grey. But do it like you have a brain. Wear stupid hats. Paint your face, dance in the isle, yell at the band. Roll a tree. Oh wait….you can’t.

Thanks Al in Dadeville. May you rot in jail for killing two trees.

Make A Wish Two Page

My next Quick and Easy class at the shoppe.  It is not on the calendar, yet.  The paper is Kay and Company and I used broken china, spiced marmalade and starry night stickles.  Making the candles will be part of the class.  I will post a second tutorial for making the candles.

Store Display

Allyson and I were challanged by our new marketing director to throw a sample display together for Valentines Day in one of our stores. Historically we have not made "drug store type" displays for short term promotion but I have a feeling that is going to change. It took 3 hours, which included going to the store, setting the display, writing on the A-Frame sign and helping customers in between.

Here is what we came up with. This was approved and was sent out company wide for the other stores to use as a guide.
