    Super Bowl Weekend

    Keep those Valentines Contest Entries coming!!!! Send a picture of you and your valentine to, and win some "sweet" prizes!!!!

    .Here's some Super Bowl Facts to throw around at your party this weekend:

    In the USA - more toilets flush at the half time of the Super Bowl than at any other time of the year.

    Last year Americans ate more than 8.5 million pounds of tortilla chips on Super Bowl Sunday.

    Dominos Pizza sales typically double on Super Bowl Sunday.

    Super Bowl Monday sales of antacids increase by more than 20% over other Mondays.

    Eight percent of those watching will be tuning in just to see the ads.

    Super Bowl XLI ads cost an average of just over $80,000 per second at $2.4 million for a 30 second spot.

    Super Bowl ticket prices over the years:

    Super Bowl I (1967) $6-$12
    Super Bowl XV (1981) $40
    Super Bowl XXII (1988) $100
    Super Bowl XXX (1996) $200-$350
    Super Bowl XXXIII (1999) $325
    Super Bowl XL (2006) $650

    How do you get a ticket to a Super Bowl? The tickets are distributed as follows:

    AFC Champion - 17.5 percent
    NFC Champion - 17.5 percent
    Host Team (Dolphins) - 5.0 percent
    Other 29 Teams - 34.8 percent
    NFL - 25.2 percent

    There are no public sales for tickets to the Super Bowl. If you are not so fortunate as to know someone within the NFL, all requests for the remaining available tickets (about 1% of total tickets available) are selected in a random drawing.

    Cost of the Vince Lombardi Trophy: $25,000

    Who makes Super Bowl Trophy: Tiffany & Co. of New York.

    Cost of Super Bowl rings: League pays for up to 150 rings at $5,000 per ring (plus adjustments for increases in gold and diamonds). League also pays for 150 pieces of jewelry for the losing team, which may not cost more than one-half the price set for the Super Bowl ring.

    Host city economic impact: Super Bowl XL generated a total economic impact in Detroit of $261 million, according to a study commissioned by Detroit Metro Convention & Visitors Bureau.

    Here is "your's truly". I'm not conceited, I was just having some fun designing stuff the other night.

    Sorry this one is so small.

    We also took some photos for a competition that's coming up this weekend in Des Moines. We'll let you know how we fare. We're really excited to enter our work against some of the people that we admire in the industry, and see if we can get some awards. Last year we took home a 2nd place in the Wedding Category, and a 3rd Place in the Miss Photogenic contest in our first year of entering competition!! So excited, we were! So this year, the stakes are higher, as are our goals.

    This website has some interesting feature: One item at a time, super good deals, and the item changes a few times a day. Check them out.
