Quote of the month:
""No one really listens to anyone else, and if you try it for a while you'll see why."
"I don't listen to Jim. If you try it for a while, you'll understand why." - Tim
Soapbox presents Tim's personal opinions about serious issues that he feels are of importance.
Caring for "the least of these"? Sojourners' Jim Wallis has been given the soapbox this issue to speak about how we are doing as a country when it comes to caring for those who are poor, elderly, not as privileged... click here.
Trivia: In George Washington's days, there were no cameras. One's image was either sculpted or painted. Some paintings of George Washington showed him standing behind a desk with one arm behind his back while others showed both legs and both arms. Prices charged by painters were not based on how many people were to be painted, but by how many limbs were to be painted. Arms and legs are "limbs," therefore painting them would cost the buyer more. Hence the expression, "Okay, but it'll cost you an arm and a leg." Truth? or just a good creative story? Who cares. It's just trivial stuff being passed around the internet...

Meet us at The 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:
Duct Tape Gardener While mowing the lawn I broke a branch on My Wifes favorite pepper plant. My trusty roll of Duct tape was at my side. One strip of tape mended the pepper plant and saved My %$#@*.
Duct Tape River Ride Our annual canoe trip down the Saskatchewan River was a success this year due to the simple fact that one of us grabbed the duct tape during the packing process. Generally we are "purists", refusing to take unneccessary items. Actually we are getting older and the toting to and from the river is killing us.
Got an idea for a shirt? Look through our apparel offerings. If you don't see your idea, and we haven't used it in the past, we just might use it. If we produce it, we will send you a free shirt. (email your idea to firstname.lastname@example.org - put "shirt idea" in the subject line)
