Yes – you can now book your ticket to space.  It’s done.  They’ve done it.  Around 48 hours ago Virgin Galactic unveiled a new spaceship and you can register for a ticket online.  You will go through 3 days of flight preparation before boarding.  It is a sub-orbital trip, meaning you will leave the earth’s atmosphere and gravitational pull behind – to float around and take a look down from the stars.  Flights begin in 2009.  Take a Friday off and on Monday when co-workers tell you they didn’t do much for the weekend…just wait for them to ask you.  $200,000 with a $20,000 deposit.  PURCHASE TICKET

Corzo TequillaIn 1902 a German botanist named Weber came to Mexico to study the Agave plant and differentiate between local varieties.  He soon discovered higher altititudes and milder climates fostered better alcohol from the plant.  The now aptly named Blue Tequilana Weber Agave is used for the finest tequillas.  In fact the European Union and Mexico designated that this is the only plant that can produce anything officially called Tequilla.  Corzo Blue Agave are grown a mile high where the soil is richer and more red producing the finest tequilla.  Worth a try.  46-$56  BUY

For a company famous for its toasters, Dualit is going modern – while staying a bit retro in design. The Dualit Digital Radio has a rechargeable NiMH battery, timer, alarm with snooze and sleep options, cast aluminum casing, and an aux in for the iPod. Put it next to the bed, in the home office – take it on the road. We like it.  Enjoy. $225.00. BUY

In April of this year, 253,190 U.S. passengers had their luggage sent to the wrong place. American Airlines alone lost 38,454 just in April. New charges have just gone into effect for checked bags on some airlines.

The Luggage Club will pick your bags up at your home, and deliver them to your destination for less than one would think. A set of golf clubs from San Francisco to Sun Valley, Idaho round-trip is about $140. That means you only handle them on the course. Business for such services has increased 500% in the last year, and we think it’s time to take them up on their offer. Bags insured for $1,000 each and you get a tracking number. BUY

The new James Bond book, The Devil May Care, is out and available cheaply, or – if you’d prefer to see what happens when Bond fanatics go a little overboard, take a peek at the Bentley special edition version of the book. Bond drove a handful of Bentley’s over the years and is behind the wheel of one again in The Devil May Care. Only 300 copies of the book have been made (100 for the U.S.). The publishers met with the design team at Bentley and spared no expense in the details of the special edition. The look is a mix of the original 1950’s Bond novels with the 1950’s Bentley owner’s manuals. The leather binding and stitching is the same used in Bentleys and there is even a steel engine plate inside with the number of the book. And it comes with a little die-cast replica of the original Bond Bentley from Casino Royale. Afraid someone might use this book as a coaster on your coffee table? Likely not when it is in it’s plexi-glass case…included. $1500. BUY

Out with the old and in with the new. Time to take the Babolat Aeropro Drive for a test run and see how you stack up to Wimbledon’s #1. Rafael Nadal uses this racquet, and quite well we should add. He wraps two over-grips around it to expand the width of the handle and strings it to between 55 and 65 pounds. Large sweetspot will only help. $185 BUY
