Not just another Duct Tape Wallet... We get a lot of duct tape wallet submissions (see our duct tape fashion and fashion accessory area). But this guy, we thought was doing something unique and doing a really nice job of it. So, here's a rip of the roll to Shaun Withers and a link to his "QualityDuctTapeWallets" site.
The unique concept behind Shaun's wallets is that YOU design them, and he creates them for you. Take a look at this wallet that he created for a Coca Cola fanatic - 100% duct tape - carefully cut and applied graphics make these, like he says, quality wallets.
Feel like doing it yourself? Okay - take a look at our Make-It-Yourself section for wallet-making directions. If you get frustrated, just click to Shaun's website and let him take over for you.

Well, this month we moved to Colorado from the East Coast and are doing our best to adjust. The first day here we were issued a Subaru and a lexan water bottle. Now, if we just get some bicycles, we will be allowed to buy a house.
One thing I noticed is that there seem to be less aggressive and reckless drivers out here than in the New York Metropolitain area. At first I thought that was because of the generally more laid back atmosphere. Or maybe it was because of the Colorado State Patrol's policy of reporting them by cell phone. I have come to realize that it is probably due to the high percentage of winding mountain roads with no guard rails.
I heard an ad on the radio for a gourmet buffet brunch. They were telling about the expertise of their executive chef and describing all the superb entrees. Then they mentioned the price and it was indeed expensive. One thing they said, though, was that children under 5 were free. Immediately I thought of what a great place that would be to have my son's fourth birthday party.
Website Discovery of the Month
Meet us at The Duct Tape Diner. We’ve had some great stories over the counter at the Duct Tape Diner recently. If you haven’t yet read the Diner contributions, stop by! This is where we invite our visitors to share their own duct tape stories. Just like these people did:
Save the Birds
Musical Gum Shoe I play in an old time string band (The Roller Mills String Band). This past summer, we were playing on a stage where someone before us had chewed some gum and it was right in the middle of the stage where the band plays. After I stepped in it, I got it off my shoe, but I could not get it off the stage surface and was concerned that I would continue to step in it. So, I just took out my trusty duct tape and put a strip over the gum. - Dale P., The Roller Mills String Band

Ole's new cow
He drives to the North Dakota farm and looks over the cow. Ole reaches under to see if she gives milk. When he grabs the teat and pulls.. the cow farts.
When he gets back to Minnesota, he calls over his neighbor, Sven, and says, "Hey, Sven, come and look at dis here new cow I yust bought. Pull her teat, and see vat happens." Sven reaches under, pulls the teat and the cow farts. Sven looks at Ole and says, "You bought dis here cow in North Dakota, didn't yah?"
Ole is very surprised since he hadn't told Sven about his trip. Ole replies, "Yah dats right. but, how did you know?
Sven says, "My wife is from North Dakota." (Tim would like to apologize to his fellow Swedes for publishing this joke.)
