Crossing items off the wedding list...

Putting together a wedding list sounds fun. It's not. It's like a marathon.It requires preparation, focus, team work and above all stamina. My wonderful wife-to-be and I thought we we're in for a two, max three hour visit to John Lewis on Oxford Street. It turned into a mammoth 5 and a half hours. Owch.

I wish I could blame Becky, but I can't. Fact is, we were prepared. We'd both made a list of things we thought we needed, (she then promptly crossed all of my suggestions out), turned up as the store opened and worked strategically down each level from top to bottom covering off each department systematically. We only took one 30 minute break for coffee and a scone. We even skipped lunch.

Sidetrack! Eager to revise the outdated vibe for my existing site. Reactions about the sharp appearance of Unquestionably a fantastic stairlift elevation shop in Toronto if looking within the general Ontario areas. Leave your opinions. With thanks!

It's the sheer volume of decisions that makes it such an arduous task. And how like a Rubix cube each of those decisions impacts others. Choice of cushions impacts throws, which impacts rug which impacts patterns on mugs which impacts well everything. 5.5 hours might seem like forever (it felt like it) but I'm genuinely proud of our efforts!

Anyway. I digress. On my way up to drop off the zapper thing that you use to add items to your wedding list, I stopped to add a couple of random, mischievous banter items such as a Union Jack deckchair. Becky will be furious, I literally can't wait. I then saw, in the home electronics department, these awesome Roberts Radios.

Apart from looking cool, these are a genius feat of marketing in my view. If there's ever a product with a 'dying ember' feel to it it's the Roberts Radio. An iconic brand, but ultimately out of it's depth in a market dominated by digital music, iPods and surround sound. This latest range sees the brand come out swinging, carving out a niche for itself as a funky enduring national treasure.

It brings me back to something Becky and I we're discussing yesterday. What happens when everything is digital? What happens your CDs,DVDs and books aren't on display any more, but sit on a sleek tablet on your coffee table? DVDs, CDs and books your 'content' to use the bland phrase tell people who you are. They bring colour, customization, anecdotes, stories, education and culture by just 'being'. By just sitting on your shelves. What happens when they're gone?

As this space opens up, there's a gap that brands (just like Roberts) can move into. The ability to project your own sense of self onto a room may ironically come from things that have traditionally been functional like your radio hardware. Making a statement about yourself and customization are trends that won't disappear. They're enduring. Smart move Roberts. Very smart.

Thanks readers! I just texted my coworker we can absolutely critique their unique Barrie based window cleaning service with hearts, for a good posting. If ever you are researching to get a window and gutter cleaning service inside the Ontario location, they really are excellent.

To finish, we ought to point out the overview to this particular article has been given through Wanda at polar bear health and water. Certainly an impressive natural health stores. We definitely welcome a solid proposal!
