These are the very posts I hate but in a hypocritical move I'm kindly asking for blog readers to spare a few seconds to vote in a competition I'd be very grateful. More
Last year I took the liberty of compiling all the Lego based Apprentice Series 4 sketches into one long post. This year, I've done it again. Hope it's as useful to some as the 2008 one was. These sketches are genius and I'm looking forward to seeing more in 2010! More
It's great to be affiliated with companies that just keep on delivering new products time and time again: people like Firebox and I Want One Of Those. Admittedly, promotion of these two has been non-existent in Fiske towers but I've got plans in the 2009 pipeline :-)
Anyhoo, whilst searching for Christmas presents for the father-in-law (to be), I stumbled across Nothing. Care of I Want One Of Those, you can buy someone Nothing! It's a cracking present idea that is particularly apt for those people that say they want nothing for Christmas :-)
Thanks to the creative geniuses at Boleg Bros, you can watch a summary of each episode of the Apprentice Series 4 - in Lego! There's a little bit of creative licence in the actual films but they are a fair representation of each episode. More
Studio, the catalogue shop which suffered from some order fulfilment issues last year, has sent out a Christmas 2008 brochure on 28th May 2008.
As there's now less than 7 months to go, people must now be thinking about Christmas. More
Seat (the car people) have been running an advert for the Leon called "Who Owns Who?". The words read as follows:
Think about this. When you buy a car you buy a new piece of yourself. Something that's yours but not part of your body.This is remarkably similar to affiliate web design. Here's how. More
You buy the need to look after it, to maintain it, to use it even when you don't need to.
You buy the obligation to feed it, the job of having to clean it, the obsession of stopping people leaving beach sand in the car.
You buy the fear of losing it, of someone taking it from you.
You buy the obsession to keep it spotless, and worry about finding a safe place to park.
You buy the impulse to compare your car with other cars, but you buy it anyway. Because the best things in life are not the things you own, it's the things that own you.
What do you do when you've had a few drinks this Christmas but feel hungry?
Supersize or get creative!
Here's a couple of foody websites that are top notch and worthy of five minutes of your time, even if you're not drunk! More
You can have the world's most expensive Wii for Christmas though it'll set you back £5,000,100.00, and there's still 9 hours let to go!
This is a '5 minutes of fame' auction but take a look at how much this is going to kick the seller if eBay bill him before he can claim an unpaid item strike! More
Thank you to Jess of Affiliate Program Advice the team at Truffle Shuffle and to Richard Longhurst of LoveHoney for helping out with my request for surplus stock for a charity event.
The event raised around £1,000 and as far as I am aware, outstanding monies are being collected as we speak. More

I'm not sure if it's just us but Christmas starts when the Coca Cola christmas truck advert is shown on TV. Last year, Coca Cola changed their advert and placed the emphasis away from the classic trucks that used to be iconic to the annuals TV adverts.
The good news is they're back this year - and I suspect it's all the negative criticism that a lot of people voiced last year.
So here it is:
The other half works in a nursery who are running a one-off fund-raising event for a Welsh charity called the Christian Lewis Trust.
The Trust helps families by providing emotional and practical support for families of children with cancer. That's the good part. Their patrons are Mel C (Spice Girls), Philip Schofield and Joe Pasquale (which is the questionable part :-D )
What I'm after
Anyhow, if any merchants have any stock they could spare to donate as raffle prizes, please email me via my contact form for my address. The value of the prize is not important and it can be stock sitting in the corner of your warehouse. Alternatively, a real world gift voucher would be welcomed. More
A couple of good computer animation videos for you here.
A rather off topic post but nevertheless quite interesting.
Have you done a search in Google for your surname and full name to see what the results are like? Granted you need to be bored or interested in search engine rankings! More

Have I missed something? Since when did Amazon and Marks and Spencer pair up?
The worrying thing here is that Amazon state that I am ordering from M&S despite shopping on, and placing an order through the official Amazon website for items to be fulfilled directly by Amazon! More
Tom Page has developed an ingenious website that is a prime example of a niche website.
You Can Park allows people to rent out their driveways to anyone who wants to use them.
He came up with the idea when he had to park 3 miles away from work. More
