My MOUSE decided to make another element for you, in celebration of my blog hitting 800 visitors yesterday!

Yes, you heard me right - I said Mouse. This is Miles pet name to most these days. He got this sweet little handle from Sonya's Son, who upon seeing a layout of Miles on Sonya's computer screen, and with his cute little 'accent' tried to say Miles, but it came out Mowse. LOL! It stuck! Yesterday, when I was showing Sonya this Snowman element, her Son Lex burst out w/ "thats a SNOWMAN!!" in great excitement, so I've dedicated this element to Lex. I have the best of both worlds here - I get to enjoy her twins but not have to look after them!! I get all the 'sweet bits'

Do you have a cute nickname you would care to share w/ me, along w/ how you recieved it?

I DID say recently that everything is getting faster and faster, and just this morning I heard two examples of how we are enableing this. One example is a new video store which is open in Vernon, a city two hours north of us. It is based on video stores in Europe, which already enjoy this service. It is fully automated - you buy a membership and you come into this small frontal area, and like with your bank machine you swipe your card etc. Your movie is then dispensed out to you. You can take your movie out for 4 hrs or longer periods, the fees increasing as you choose more.

The second example is that some fast food restaurants are going to be using 'Call Centers' to process the take-out window orders. Thats right, you talk into that little box in the parking lot, but instead of the order going to the person inside the building, it may be routed to a call center 1000 miles away, even in an entirely different country and then into the restaurant via ... whatever way they will do this. I heard it said that Wendy's (do you all have Wendy's in USA? - its just a fast food place) Wendy's goal is to be able to process those window orders in 90 seconds. Thats FAST allright.
