Vom Fass

Vom Fass: literally translated means "From the Barrel" While the hubby & I were in Christchurch, New Zealand we accidentally happened across this great store called Vom Fass .... We spent entirely to much time in here, enjoying tastes of goodies from Liqueurs ~ Whiskies ~ Spirits ~ Olive Oils & Balsamic Vinegars. When we got home I decided, I am going to open up

one of these cool stores:

Vom Fass is internationally successful with over 140 stores worldwide the unique VOM FASS offers natural and fresh products in loose format. Culinary oils, wellness oils, vinegars, liqueurs, spirits, whisky's, and wine's are displayed and sold straight from wooden casks, clay jugs or glass balloons.
If you ever get a chance to visit one of these stores I highly reccomend it,,,,,
Any time you can find a place where you can refill your own Wine bottle ,, i'm all about it!

When can you officially say you are moved in?
When you've moved out of the old residence? When you can actually sleep in the new house?When you can make a meal in the new kitchen? When you can walk thru your new house in the dark & not trip over any boxes... Okay ... Let's go with that one..

As of today all the boxes are officially unpacked.... This was not a big move, we just moved 4 doors down.. You'd think this would make it even easier,,, NOT SO! Frustrating was the fact we were going from a 3 bedroom to a 2. Shoving 2 rooms into 1, is always so much fun...
We have way to much JUNK!

The hubby didn't want to stay in this Apartment complex... Why you ask.. Well, that is the reason for this blog: Would you not stay at a location because of the name in your mailing address...?

We live on a street called "SPARKLEBERRY" & no matter how hard my hubby tries he can't lower his voice enough to make this name sound manly.. You just can't butch this name up.. What upsets him is...We live between..."BOMBING RANGE" & "SCREAMING EAGLE" ... Cool names ...huh He will refuse to call customer service places he says "I can hear them laughing" when he gives our address... What's in a name? Does it really matter?

In 1991 we didn't purchase a house because it was located on "SALISBURY".. Would you be able to think of anything but Salisbury Steak when you pulled into your driveway?

The joy in all of this? We get to do it all again in 7 months...When we move back home.

At least we have clean closets... For now~~

Well? What do you call it....

I don't even want to tell you how the subject came up..
Suffice it to say it just did...
So? What do you call it.?
  • Bathroom
  • Restroom
  • Ladies/Men's Room
  • Loo
  • Lavatory
  • Latrine
  • Head
  • WC
  • Bano
  • Pissoir
  • Privy
  • Bad
  • These are off of the top of my head

As we were sitting around discussing this "During Lunch" no less, I had to giggle, Just how many names does this one little room have? Now, maybe I'm the only one that finds humor in this... Being a soldier & a Flight Attendant I do have to check my vocabulary occasionally...on a plane it's a lavatory, on a military base Army at least it is a Latrine..

While in Copenhagen we took this picture, We thought it was funny! A passerby whispered in my ear, "Love, you know you are standing in front of the Loo" I didn't want to hurt her feelings..I just said "Yes, Ma'am" I'm guessing she didn't see the humor. (Bless her heart)

Wait we found another one, How about Port-a-potty, The next picture is from Sydney, Australia it was a gift from France. I don't even wanna know why France gave Australia a Port-a-potty, I think the USA made out better with the Statue of Liberty!

Come on leave me a comment... What do you call the John?
