Happy Merdeka, Malaysia!!



Independence Day...52 years on:) We have a long weekend, there's pouring rain and cool weather. I hope everyone who has travelled has reached their destination safely...i also hope the streets of KL are quiet.

And to leave everyone with a reminder to smile and laugh often...here are some little gems from Quote of the Day:

"I don't want to achieve immortality through my work... I want to achieve it through not dying." ~ Woody Allen

"Opera is when a guy gets stabbed in the back and, instead of bleeding, he sings." ~ Ed Gardner

"I am free of all prejudice. I hate everyone equally." ~ W C Fields

"Part of being sane, is being a little bit crazy." ~ Janet Long

"If the English language made any sense, a catastrophe would be an apostrophe with fur." ~Doug Larson

"I'm not a vegetarian because I love animals. I'm a vegetarian because I hate plants." ~ A. Whitney Brown

"Happy Merdeka to all Malaysians, wherever you may be!" ~ BCD

A 10-foot installation

My Saturday morning was spent installing the Mark Twain quote earlier mentioned in the blogpost "A Custom Order In Progress". We also helped install Skyline just above our customer's bedpost while we were there. As promised, here are the end results!
