You've been in Germany, too? I hope you enjoyed your trip, it's a beautiful landscape along the Rhine river.

Must have been very surprising to see those flower boxes!
Maybe it IS a picture of Lies' home? ;) :lol: :lol: :lol:

Noooooooo I live in Lelystad........Don't know if dad (he lives in A'dam) had plans for new flowerboxes, he told me he had a belated birthdaysurprise :P :lol:
I asked a tour guide about it later, and she said she didn't know the story behind it, but that it has been that way for years. It seems it's some sort of production company (I don't know if they have permission to use the MacGyver name - clearly it is the same font and everything), but it looks just like someone's house from the outside. At first I thought it was just the home of one very enthusiastic fan. :D It certainly wasn't something I was expecting to find on an outing in Amsterdam! :lol:


Kate
I noticed them a view times on internet, but this, :lol: :lol: Never been to the Anne Frank house and it's close :oops: ;)

this is what they do:

LOL now MacGyver fans all over the world will order these flower boxes ;)

Next time you're in Germany, come visit me in Dresden Kate! It's also a beautiful city.

Since I read the entry with the shoestrings, I remembered that many years ago I shared a hotel room with a girl for a Stargate convention. We had roller blinds at the window. There were two options: Either have them completely open or completely closed. They connected to a loop at the window sill. Problem was, all the way up it was too bright with the street light outside, but all the way down it was pitch black and you couldn't see a thing. So we thought about how to manage to keep them halfway down. As they were sliding up on their own when not connected.

The only thing available to us were our shoestrings which we knotted together, connected the blinds with the loop and so prevented the blinds sliding all the way up.

You bet Astra!! It would be great!! :lol:
To bad it they aren't deliverable :lol: Asked them.if they had permission to use the name MacGyver by the way.. CBS agreed with it..I was surprised but OK. ... they are lucky I guess ;)

Had to work last weekend....
Made the tape roller with a rubber band.. the holder was lost so the tape was loose in the roller... wrapped the rubber band around the holder and through the tape, tight enough to use it as it should. We were out of erasers so I made a ball out of rubber bands and it worked perfect! Ready with work I went downstairs and our technical service was busy to fix a cable against the wall and did it with duct tape till they had a proper solution... :lol:
Lots of love,

Lies
