The Seagaia Ocean Dome was the world's largest indoor water park in Japan. It was officially closed in 2007. The dome measured roughly 1000 feet in length and 350 feet in width. The Ocean Dome featured a fake flame-spitting volcano, artificial sand and the world's largest retractable roof, which provided a permanently blue sky even on a rainy day. The air temperature was always held at around 86 degrees Fahrenheit and the water at around 82 degrees Fahrenheit.

Throw off the Bowlines...

New Years Resolution #3:
Remind myself of this as much as possible.
Maybe it will have to be my personal mantra for 2013.

Happy Weekend Everyone!

English Christmas Cracker Crowns...

I had the strangest dreams last night... 

New Years Resolution #1: 
Go to bed earlier. 

 New Years Resolution #2: 
Throw away the Christmas Cracker Crown from X-mas dinner.

Oscar Wilde, Not Weiner

Astrid & Gina have been very busy, and helpful, working in the store over their X-mas breaks...

And learning who Oscar Wilde is...

Some of our favorite quotes are from Oscar Wilde, 
the poet/writer from the 1880's... 

Not to be mistaken with Oscar Meyer Weiner.

suddenly thrill you...

I will be keeping this in mind today 
as I prep for my meeting with my accountant.
