Handy Hint Number One

Tonight I re watched the opening ceremony of the London Olympics
I cried buckets, it was so good.
Wrung out I pleased myself afterwards by finding a new ( and indeed better use) for a fairly useless Garfield which I had been given nearly 40 years ago
I am thinking of making a regular feature called Handy Hints! 


At first glance a vintage Garfield

Look again! 
The perfect ipad holder!

  2. Very clever! but I can't bear to think of Garfield not being able to see anything but the back side of the iPad ...

  13. great idea. I gave husband Garfield over twenty years ago. They went sailing together on a charter boat in Antigua. The cook used to hide Garfield all over the place.. in the oven, up the mast, hanging in a bucket overboard, in the engine room. Great memories x

  14. Have an old teddy who would easily stand in for Garfield - don't have an I pad!

  15. That opening ceremony - all done with video mapping! Having done a bit myself, I think that the 3D effect of rising buildings would only have been effective when viewed from one point - the camera's point - so I am guessing that the rest of the stadium did not know what was going on.

  16. I bet you could sell that Garfield on eBay! You're the second person to mention re-watching the opening ceremonies of the Olympics. I didn't even see them the first time around, but I guess I should. I loved the London ones, I remember.
