Ceiling Fans

As regular readers will know we just been working on this new (to us) house and as the builders have now left it's time for us to turn our attention to the subject of the interior, which brings us again to the subject of ceiling fans.

Living where we are sometihng like this is going to be essential in the summer months: it's still only june and it's 33 0C outside. But what type should we get?

I mean, seriously, there's so many different types: do we want casablanca ceiling fans? Or ellington fans? Or maybe monte carlo fans are better for us?

Fortunately, given that I'm the male part of this relationship I don't actually have to worry about all of this. I can just point the wife at and let her get on with it. They're even help her sort by style, if she's not worried about which manufacturer to choose.

So she does all of that and I just get on with earning the money to pay for them. Sounds fine to me actually.

Katie Holmes and the Media

Good grief, even I'm getting bored making these posts about Katie Holmes.

There's a nice little site that has all sorts of news about the actress and Scientology kook, Katie Holmes.

Of course, there's a section on Katie Holmes and her marriage to Tom Cruise.

There's also a round up of news stories, photos and a video feed.

Yes, you can catch up with all the news on your favourite celebrity just by clicking through on of the links.

Elin and Tiger

Elin Woods now has a baby girl, her and Tiger's first child.

Sam Alexis Woods.

Given her genetic background I have a feeling that in 20 years or so she's going to be breaking a lot of hearts.

Vacation Time!

Have you worked out your summer vacation yet? Thought about an extra trip perhaps? If not, then you'll want to come over here and look at this great little site dealing with hotel bookings.

They're starting small and rolling out the site across other European cities, so as to make sure that they get all of the necessary information there in the right amount of detail. So at present they've got Amsterdam hotels and Barcelona hotels up and running, Rome hotels as well.

Have a look around the site. For example, the Hotel Veneto Rome. They give details of the address (of course!), how close parking is, the facilities available, including such modern essentials as WiFi, pricing, the ability to check on availability and so on. Everything you need to decide whether this is the hotel for you.

Interestingly, they've also got a section for previous customers of the hotel to comment on the service and ambiance. So you're actually getting public feedback, not just the glossy brochure talk.

Well worth checking out in advance of any European trip you might be taking.
