Monday Teeny Poll

Monday, January 5th, 2009
By Glinda


Last week I wanted to know if you were making any New Year’s resolutions.

I was pleased to find out, no, 61% of you aren’t!

I’m all for wanting to start the year off with good intentions, but if what you want to do is so fantastic, why would you need the excuse of a new year to do it?

This week, I’m all about the sibling rivalry. If a mother has more than one child, does she have a favorite? This poll is completely anonymous, so time to ‘fess up!

Wedgwood Edged Out

In news of interest to all fine china and crystal junkies, Josiah Wedgwood’s great legacy, Wedgwood China (along with Waterford crystal) is on the block. Sure, you should be able to pick up a nice bargain if you’ve got a few hundred million Irish pounds, but it could be bad news for completing your wished-for eight full place settings.

From the BBC:

China and ceramics firm Waterford Wedgwood has said it expects to call in administrators to its UK arm on Monday.

It has also requested that its shares be suspended from trading on the Irish Stock Exchange with immediate effect.

It’s a shame that a centuries-old firm with wares recognized as the finest in the world has come to this desperate circumstance. What can possibly have caused such a desperate move? We are looking at the usual suspects.

Who me????
Who ME???

But nobody’s talking!
