National Scrabble Day

      For the Scrabble lover in your life we have vintage scrabble tile made into pendants using silver.



 In 1931 an unemployed architect , Alfred Mosher Butts created the game "Lexiko" which was changed to "criss-Cross Words" and later came to be known as Scrabble.

     This very popular game is played with two to four players whom score points by forming words from individual letter tiles that have points on them, on a game board marked with a 15x15 grid.

       IN the United States, the name Scrabble is trademarked by Hasbro, inc. Scrabble is sold in 121 countries with 29 different language versions. Worldwide, over  one hundred and fifty million sets have been sold.   It is
no possible to play Scrabble in Japanese's or Chinese, but they play in English with a rule book in their own language.
 
       1984 - Scrabble became a daytime game show on NBC
       1989 - The highest score for one game is 1049 by Philip Appleby from Lymington
       1995 - Underwater Scrabble was played at Portsmouth University using special laminated boards and tile   
                    with led weights.
      2004 - Scrabble was inducted into the National Toy Hall of Fame
      2014 - Scrabble added a new word to the official player's dictionary. Geocache is the first time the     
     Scrabble dictionary has ever included a word that was voted on by the fans and it's the first major    
      update to the Scrabble dictionary in nearly a decade

     National Scrabble Day is celebrated today in honor of the birth of Alfred Mosher Butts, born on April
     13,  1899.

.  


     To celebrate today, get some friends together and play a game
     of Scrabble or Words with Friends (not actually the same, but it will due).

e = mc2

Today is the 136th anniversary of Albert Einstein's birthday.  Born March 14th, 1879 in Germany. The young prodigy graduated from high-school in 1896. As an adult he moved to Italy and then to Switzerland.


Now you can have your own piece of history with one of our pendants or rings from the pavers outside of Einstein's home in Switzerland!

Einstein emigrated to the United States in 1933 and took residence in Princeton and a professorship at the Institute for Advanced Study. He Died April 18, 1955 in Princeton, NJ at the age of 76. 

Today, the practical application of Einstein's theories include the development of the television, remote control device, automatic door openers, lasers & DVD players.

Navel Piercing Time

Now is the time to get your navel pierced if you want to be healed by summer to swim.
There is no swimming for 2 to 6 months (with a curved barbell) while your navel piercing is healing, so get yours now while it's still cold out!

Dangle curved barbell best for healed piercings only.
