Which Watch?

I love a good printed watch ad.
There's something special about them.

They're elegant & aspirational.

They're 'All man' (or beautiful women). Tacky celebrities are not invited here.

Luxurious & sexy. I'd have to give up my first born to pay for it.

They are intriguing and a perfect example of old school craftsmanship.

Do you come with the watch?

It's begining to look a lot like ...

Christmas for us, but while we in Sydney celebrate the arrival of Oprah, Bon Jovi, U2, Jay-Z, Guns N Roses bla bla bla ...
....  there are people in th eastern states of Australia who have experienced floods & damage.
.... there are refugees who are dying en route to Australia & Christmas Island.
.... there are people rioting in London.
.... the people in Greece are stuggling to earn and hold down their jobs.

Sometimes I feel so lucky and fortunate. There are so many interesting and positives in my life.

Shit-stirrer ...

 Take a bow Julian Assange.  
I belive in freedom of speech. However, when that information is released irresponsibly, is used for harm or could potentially harm someone, it should be managed responsibly.  Governments should be given the the right of reply and allowed time to secure those at risk.

The idea of Wikileaks is noble and infact, quite necessary in todays world. 
The execution ... needs improvement.

Opt-in & out Marketing Emails

I like to subscribe to newsletters/feeds from my favourite blogs, stores, companies etc.
I opt-in to these newsletters in good faith, to hear about new ideas, products, discounts & new places.

Generally speaking, I will get emails from retail outlets once a week, if that.
There are some companies out there that I wish could do more online  ... hint hint, place where I work! However, there is one company now just plain annoying me with all their 'sales' & bombardment of e-newsletters ...

I'm now opting-out, permanently.
