It’s not whether you win or lose, it’s how you plate the food!

This summer is screaming past so quickly – is it just me?

Remember the days when summer felt like an entire lifetime and you actually started looking forward to going back to school and seeing your friends?

Learning Something New (LeSoNe)

Nifty huh the 1st 2 letters of Learning Something New basically spell lesson…sort of.

We all learn something new everyday, at least that’s what ‘they’ say now let’s see if ‘they’ are right!
Feel , free to play along.

A ‘live floor’ is a house design term that basically means people will be walking on it – its not just an attic floor with no traffic.

Are we having fun yet

So if these people weren’t on the famous William Thornton’s (Willy T’s) floating barge in BVI this would be a live floor maybe even a live dance floor?!
