Global Smurfs Day

Anne Middleton
June 22nd, 2015

June 22 is Global Smurfs Day.  If you’re a child of the 80s, you may know about the Smurfs or enjoyed the recent reboot.  The history of Smurfdom actually pre-dates the 80s, so in honor of all things Smurf, we have some Smurf-inspired footwear. In fact, your grandparents may have been a fan of the smurfs before you, especially if you’re Belgian.  Belgian cartoonist Peyo created them way back in 1958.  For our would-be Smurfettes, Boston Proper has all you need to be fashionable.  We recommend the Jeweled Casual Sandal, with its rich blues and studded with gems.  You’ll be a very cute gnome prancing around in these sandals.

The internet is a fabulous place to introduce new ideas and concepts.  Kickstarter, Crowdsource, Go Fund Me….if you believe you have the next brilliant idea for product that solves a problem or a handy gadget, then you may be familiar with these funding sites. But what if your idea was so bizarre that no one offered even a penny for its development? Here are four ideas that should never have made it past an initial thought. 1. Throx
Throx is one of those “just in case” type of products.  Throx are socks that come in packages of three (not 2, but 3) socks. Lose a sock? No worries.  With Throx you would still have two left. 2.

Cuban Car Care

Cuba…with two presidential candidates of Cuban heritage and the president rethinking our relationship with Cuba, this island country has been in the news more often lately.  Since the embargo, many of our ideas about Cuba have been shaped by the Elian Gonzales saga and for better or worse, re-runs of I Love Lucy and Desi Arnaz.  Cuba is also known for their national fleet of classic US cars.  Cubans are masters of car upkeep, probably in large part due to the embargo of 1961.  Regardless of how you feel about the current debate about going forward with Cuba, you have to admire the Cuban dedication to preserving classic cars.

Nothing Like A Jeep

Anne Middleton
June 10th, 2015

Nothing may be more patriotic than driving a Jeep.  The original Jeep went into production in 1941 specifically for the military, arguably making them the oldest SUVs.   The Jeep became the primary light 4-wheel-drive vehicle of the United States Army and the Allies during WWII.  But what about the funny name?  A dictionary of military slang, published in 1942, in the library at The Pentagon gives this definition: Jeep: A four-wheel drive vehicle of one-half- to one-and-one-half-ton capacity for reconnaissance or other army duty.
