Great Company Names.....

A few posts ago I commented on LFD's blog about how his wife should start a company cuz she's quite good at carving watermelons for simchos and I mentioned I could come up with good names for her company if she were to make one!  (Im sure lots of you could!)

I appreciate a good business name.  Here are a few I've seen lately:

1)  Knobs and Knockers (they sell pulls and knobs for cabinets and doors in Lahaska, PA)
2)  Lets Get Stoned (granite and stone contractor in Horsham, PA)
3)  Superior Screw Company  (guess what they make........screws, silly!)

Have any companies you've used or seen in the past with cool names?

Just Curious.....

Who is visiting here from New Paltz, NY?

HELP!! Information Overload!

We had the first round of parent/teacher conferences for Zev last night and his reading teacher told us that she thinks Zev may have dyslexia.  We got things rolling for the IU to come in and evaluate, but I have been trying to do some research online........omg there is so much information out there!

I know I have some educators that read this blog........can anyone point me in the right direction to start?

Hello, My Name is Bob, and Im Calling on Behalf of the Obama Campaign.....

Ok - so Im not voting for Obama, but there is a registered independent voter with liberal leanings living in my house.  As a result, over the past few days, we have received at least 6 phone calls a day and 2 or more knocks on the door a day asking said independent voter to vote for Obama, and telling him where the polling place is in our area as well as offering rides to the polling place to vote........which I think would be amusing to schedule since the polling place is four doors down from our house!

Anyway - though one can admire Obama supporter's zeal.......its freaking annoying!!  I was woken up twice from a shabbos nap!!  And the more annoying thing is that said independent won't TELL them that s/he is planning on voting for Obama anyway so they will leave us alone!!

Have they come for you too??

Oh - BTW - we have heard NOTHING from the McCain campaign.....hmmm.......but if they don't bother your shabbos nap, Id for 'em!
