Dear Blog Readers,
We have become the kind of blogger we never wanted to be — the kind who has a "read our blog" button on our website but the newest post is months old. We blame Facebook for this — it's so much easier to write something there and we seem to have more followers there than we did here on the blog. Still, we can't quite bring ourselves to give it up altogether yet — so instead, we're posting this little note to explain our lack of current entries. Please do check out our facebook page, we think it's fun, if not quite as long form.
sincerely, the Joie de Blogger.

How Do You Spell That??

It was a busy Sunday afternoon at Joie de Vivre and we had our full holiday staffing - five or six people behind the desk. A woman called, asking us to put the Woodstock Chimes xylophone on hold . . . someone started writing, then asked "How do you spell xylophone?" Four people answered immediately and reasonably confidently: "X . . . " - then all fell silent. Then we started laughing. How DO you spell that word? It was really funny - but - count us Joie de Vivre staffers out on your next spelling bee.

Unrelated postscript: five days to Christmas . . . and its snowing !!
