This review is from: How to Avoid Huge Ships (Paperback)I bought How to Avoid Huge Ships as a companion to Captain Trimmer's other excellent books: How to Avoid a Train, and How to Avoid the Empire State Building. These books are fast paced, well written and the hard won knowledge found in them is as inspirational as it is informational. After reading them I haven't been hit by anything bigger than a diesel bus. Thanks, captain!
Caution: Check the title before purchase,

This review is from: How to Avoid Huge Ships (Paperback)I live near a park and frequently walk around the local area. Given the amount of dog mess that is on the pavements I thought this book would be the ideal read to stop me having to scrape my shoes on the grass before going home. It was only after it arrived that I looked closely at the title and realised it said 'How to Avoid Huge SHIPS'. A simple error that means I am still treading on massive examples of canine excrement. Having said that, I read the book anyway, and I'm pleased to say I'm not even having near misses with huge ships anymore. No sir, they aint getting anywhere near me!

This is FANTASTIC! Just what the doctor ordered.
Being the owner of 4 cats and 3 dogs can be a lot of work. After a recent trip to the doctor for an ache in my right elbow after throwing boomerangs for hours on end, he had only one suggestion. Seems that after a Saturday filled with canoeing, boomerang flying, cliff climbing, and Frisbee flying, I was just overdoing it by coming home to the demanding chore of petting my pets. He suggested I hire someone to pet them for me, thus reducing strain on my elbow. Imagine my delight when I came across this little gem. Unfortunately, having to spend a sizable portion of my hard earned pay on professional petters, I just can't afford it. I'm sure one of you reading this will come through though. Right?
I LOVE Fruit Cake, just not eating Fruit Cake.
So this will be great!
I might have to move this to the top of my list. I mean, I can't believe that I've been missing out on this for so long. I'm sure most of you will want one too though, so what are the chances of actually getting this wonderful gem of a gift? Oh well, there's always next year.
I'm going to need several cans of this!
I'm sure you've all heard the question more than once, "Is it bigger than a breadbox"? Well, I for one, get asked this a lot, and have never had an accurate gauge from which to get such information. If one of my blog followers is looking for the perfect, yet not overly expensive gift to get me this season, I think a breadbox is just the ticket. The one pictured above is a bit retro to boot. What's not to love about it?
Well, that's a start. Look for additional posts about what gifts I might like this holiday as they pop into my head.
