Yesterday we shared a case study that covered the entire process of finding a manufacturer in China and building an online business from scratch. In just over a month, the store generated over $2,400 in revenue, sold to customers worldwide, and grew a small team of affiliates to help promote the business. Now, we’re giving that business away to one lucky entrepreneur, along with a whole bunch of extras in partnership with Shippo to help propel yo...

Just a reminder, Lego People!
This Kickstarter only has a couple days left to be successful.
https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/le-glue/le-glue-the-water-soluble-adhesive-for-lego-blocks

If you have models that you are especially proud of, this glue will keep them together in the best possible way!

DO IT!

Thanks +Rajeev Cr. It was taken with an Olympus OM-D EM-10 with a 60mm macro lens. Using an off-camera wireless flash and diffusing reflector I can get some awesome results. That image is with very little editing.

Have you guys seen this Kickstarter?
https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/le-glue/le-glue-the-water-soluble-adhesive-for-lego-blocks

I was the first to jump in! He's since added a level where you can get 6 pots of this block adhesive. I'm not affiliated. Just excited. Lee, Tripp's dad emailed me to let me know that it is thin enough to use with a brush. You may see a picture in the Kickstarter media that shows Tripp dipping the block. It's not that messy.

I love the back story

"How it began 

Thank you for viewing my project. My name is Tripp Phillips. As an aspiring inventor I started building with LEGO® blocks as far back as I can remember. Building blocks allowed me to be creative and make all kinds of silly contraptions (like inspector gadget). The only problem was my stuff always fell apart. The coolest of spaceships, moon landers, you name it, I built it. They looked really great, but I couldn’t play with them; wings would fall off, wheels rolled away, it simply drove me nuts. Super Glue or Krazy Glue® wasn’t an option as it ruined my bricks forever and bricks aren’t cheap. This was the problem of every kid in the world (and adult kids too.) I was determined to figure out a solution to overcome this problem and stop those messy breakups. My invention, Le-Glue® is the answer."

It's not a bad BW shot though. Nice contrasts.

We had the opportunity to stop in here for a short visit and I'll tell you, I want to spend a lot more time here on my next visit. The ayout of the garden is beautiful with so many different trees and plants. A true place for inspiration and relaxation.

A wonderful large beach. Too often the water is off-limits due to polution, but that's not the only thing to do there. Lots of walking trails and a playground to have fun in. There is a nature centre to learn about the local area and a boat/tackle shop where rentals can be made.

Recently saw a show (Musical Box) that was amazing. Good sound and light. Not great, but maybe next time it will be. We sat in the front row. That was our first mistake. The sound in the front row was unbalanced. We had a hard time hearing vocals as the speakers were at opposite sides of the stage. Lighting was in our face, literally. This is a feature of the show, not the venue. There was a strobe positioned right in front of our faces. Luckily it was only sued in one song, otherwise we would have needed to find a different seat. Great small venue, though. would recommend.

A wonderful place to eat and drink. The food is excellent and the beer is tasty and varied. The building is an old mill on a small river and it's incredible to see on its own.

This new location is a wonderful addition to Orleans. They have lots of choice for cats and dog and for our pet, a bearded dragon, we can get all the superworms we need. They have started carrying some small animals for adoption, including lizards, snakes, rats, guinea pigs and the like. The staff is friendly and like to chat. Leashed pets are allowed.

The bar staff are friendly and talkative. The regular patrons, on the other hand can be unruly, rude, loud and drunk. The beer is a little on the pricey side, spending $10 for a pint, with tip. I've not eaten there so I can't talk about the food, but if it's like other Oaks, it's bar food. Maybe their chef is spectacular so as for the Chef's favorite dish.
