We like things that get us thinking and new
inventions that seem amazing to us. So we’ll share
some with you.
We’ve been following the development of the
drehplattentur (flip panel door) for a few years
now and though not available yet we really like
this version. The video is only 34 seconds long
but if you’re like us you’ll watch it several
Do you weld, grind, heat parts, sweat copper pipe,
or work with other heat sources. Then you probably
know something about fire safety and have a fire
extinguisher or two around. Fire Service Plus now
sells FireAde. An environmentally friendly foam
that can be cleaned up with water.
Have a cold spot in your house and would like to
warm it up? You could always make a solar heater
out of tin cans and odds and ends. For around $50
you can keep your toes toasty all winter.
Not really brand spanking new, but interesting, is
the nuclear-powered, ballistic missile submarine.

submarine in 1900.
Older still is an article we found in the Onion
from March 21, 2011. It is not politically correct,
and will upset some, but since it mentions our
little city on the river we’ll share it.
The article is titled Town of Davenport, Iowa
Descends Into Hell Following Gay Marriage Ceremony.
And finally, a Budweiser commercial.
That’s what we found interesting and hope that you
did too. Until next time…
