'Baseball is 90 percent mental. The other half is physical.' - Yogi Berra
A local community club was organizing a baseball team. They could only muster eight players, and were hard put to find a ninth. In desperation, they called on a new member, a very reserved Englishman who had just moved into the neighborhood from London, to join their team.
During their first game, the Englishman came to bat. On the very first pitch, he knocked the ball out of the park.
The team members stood there, dumfounded! Unfortunately, so did the Englishman. 'Run!' his teammates cried. 'For Pete's sake, run!'
The Brit turned and stared at them icily. 'I jolly well shan't run,' he replied. 'I'm perfectly willing to buy you chaps another ball.'
I take old Starbucks Drink Cups and turn them into Lamps
The warm panels are made from melting down old Starbucks drink cups, but it looks and feels like mica or some organic material. The wood in the lampshade and base is pulled from our 100 year old house in Astoria Oregon during a remodel, and it all comes together for a beautiful, classic look.

the world... nutty.
