Jukeboxes and My 10 Favourite Jukebox Hits From the 1950s
The name jukebox is said to be derived from African languages. Some think that Juke comes from the African word jooy which means wicked. Others say that it comes from the word joog which means dance. Without live acts jukeboxes became one of the best things to get people up dancing for nearly a century now.

Choosing the Best Espresso Machine For Your Home

However, that cooler temperature is still on average much higher than for instance the UK!
Whenever people visit the City of Pines, the one thing that they never forget to...

Dolls House Furniture A New 7 Piece Bathroom For Our Doll House

It's just the same - furniture built to scale that is really too big on the scale. I've never seen one that can fit all of the dolls house furniture into the room that it's supposed to reside comfortably. I guess...
Testing Smoke Detectors is Better Than Tasting Beefburgers
One Friday afternoon my friend Karen rang to see if I was going out as usual that evening. I didn't want to and that was unusual for me, but normally a crowd of us went out together and just two of us seemed strange. After a certain amount of cajoling I agreed to meet in in Bradford, 10 miles away from where I live during the early evening.
