Your home office needs this. Keep track of your favorite stocks on a real working stock ticker. The Stock Ticker Company has figured out a way to print stock information, ticker style, based on internet information. Each unit is individually numbered, and includes a handcrafted mahogany pedestal, handblown glass done, cast-iron base, and the necessary software for Internet hook up. The sound it makes alone is worth it. You’ll need that ticker to show your stocks going up, to afford the $29,995 price tag.

fedexpaper.jpg“Don’t I know that shirt from somewhere?” Well it’s Basil Exposition’s in Austin Powers, and that knife on mantle is from Last of the Mohicans. The jacket is Clint Eastwood’s from In the Line of Fire. You see where it goes from here. Unbelievably all these items are the originals used in the films, and around $150 at The Prop Store of London. Next time why not add a little background story to the shirt, or just put the Cast Away newspaper (Pictured) with Tom Hanks photo on the front and “Fed Ex Plane Lost at Sea” headline on your desk. Humor if nothing else. $ Prices Vary.

Charter your own train

Jets are great, don’t get us wrong. But to actually see the America we usually fly over, may be a nice change of pace. Few know you can charter your own train car and attach it to an Amtrak train.
