Copernicus found

The remains of 16th century astronomer and priest Nicholas Copernicus have apparently been found by archeologists in Poland. Way cool. The picture (right) is a reconstruction.

Help a brother out?

Hi all,

Times are kind of tough for my wife and me, as I am sure it has been for many of you. My place of employment (a small print shop in So Cal) has been very, very, slow due to the economy so I haven’t been getting full time hours and the prospect of getting a new job in the printing business doesn’t seem very good either.

One thing I am doing to attempt to supplement my income is to try and boost business at my online T-shirt shop “Evo-T’s” and this brings me to the point of this post.

I am making available add banners in various sizes and colors (similar to the one on the right side of this blog) and would like to request that anyone with a MySpace page, a personal web-page or blog, please consider placing one of these banners on your site. The more traffic I get the more likely I’ll sell a few shirts and then maybe I won’t have to think about canceling my internet connection (one of the few luxuries we have left).

Examples:

Small Evo-Ts banner

Small Evo-T's banner

Medium Evo-Ts banner

Medium Evo-T's banner

I would of course be willing to reciprocate, and I am also always looking for new shirt ideas. Also if you haven’t already please consider adding Evo-T’s as a MySpace friend.

Thanks for your time and sorry for the slightly off-topic begging.

Update: Things just got worse. The boss officially informed me that my hours will be cut to a maximum of 24 (three days) a week. A new or additional job is a must now.

Another successful Halloween haunt

Haunting my front yard

We had a few friends over and the number of trick-or-treaters we had was at least as good as last year (which isn’t as much as I’d like). It’s a lot of work but the screams and laughter of the kids is worth it.
