House numbers and a pooch; more fun things to kill time December 1, 2007

 As usual, I’m filling the void of not seeing house progress with other items and interests.

Most recently, I read on the GrassRoots Modern blog about DWR having a sale on house numbers for only $10 per number, marked down from $35.  Now if you’re not familiar with DWR (Design Within Reach), it’s a boutique retailer which offers furniture and wares from great designers for supposedly less than you’d normally pay.  I however can’t seem to afford anything from there, but like many of their products. So when I told my wife about this sale she immediately went to the site and bought the Industrial house numbers.  They’re super snazzy looking and at $10 are comparable to generic Home Depot numbers.

 The 2nd purchase has been a bit more life-changing and has nothing to do w/ green, though one could argue for good design.  We picked up a Golden-Doodle and named her Riley.  We’re just so anxious to get into our house and REALLY get our life started, that we thought getting a dog now would get us part of the way there.

We’ve really learned a lot in couple weeks we’ve had her and she’s getting used to us as well. The biggest challenge has been the loft living where we must wait for an elevator to take her outside.  And w/ no grass nearby, she’s been raised on having to use the pavement as a restroom.  On the positive side, since we live in such a small place you always know what she’s into.

    One warning about the dog: My parents dog is trained to use pavement as a bathroom. When they first brought her inside that meant she saw the basement concrete as a bathroom. She’s learned not to potty in the basement now, but the first few times were a surprise to us all.

      Официальный ответ Massif по поводу манжетов we’re always trniyg to balance performance functionality with the needs of the end user. We’ve traditionally put some type of fastener on the wrist because of either cold weather, FR requirements, or sand storms. For this shirt, we envisioned a different end user (law enforcement, SWAT teams, etc.) that wouldn’t necessarily encounter these issues. Our design team decided to go with a more streamlined sleeve, taking advantage of the stretch in the fabric tapering the sleeve so that it was more narrow in the cuff.
