In the land of white trucks, our almost 80 year old building is getting some minor repairs. It sounds like there are elephants on the roof right now.

I felt this was a nice addition to the mother ship, but my wife was not impressed. The really neat thing about living on a gravel road is you get to redesign after every rain.

Some vanity license plates just work better than others. I suppose this is aimed at the color blind. I do love the coordinated attire. (Spotted recently in Somerset, Kentucky)

Yes, that is the term for a group of baboons. You know, like a “sneak of weasels,” “colony of vultures,” “mischief of rats,” or, perhaps my favorite, “a culture of bacteria.”

My daughter laughed as she read “Congress of Baboons” in a book she purchased just a few hours after touring the US Capitol this past Tuesday. It was funny, but it’s also sad.

The chance of having twins in the US is a fraction over 3%, or basically 33 to 1. Pretty slim odds. Better than winning the lottery, but not as likely as winning at roulette.

This is one of the myriad of things that makes working at KSD so interesting. Out of six employees, half of them have twins… or in the case of our newest employee, expecting twins. (I’m not sure that “expecting” is the right word, she’s pretty darn sure about it.)

Part of our job here at KSD is to help clients present their message – their business – in a clear, concise and visually appealing way. We give a lot of consideration to audience, and give much thought to how the intended audience might interact with the company or product. We make the effort to put ourselves in the position of someone else, always trying to look at things from different perspectives.

This spring has been spectacular for the redbuds in Kentucky. The distinctive magenta color of the early blooms brings a beautiful splash of contrast to the many hues of green emerging along the roadways. Redbuds are easy to spot… as I said above, they are magenta.

Many thousands of years ago, someone painted the image on the left. I made the image on the right a few minutes ago. The cave painting is obviously art, but it probably was a message as well. It may have had something to do with a religious ceremony, maybe a record of a successful hunt, possibly some prehistoric punk’s graffiti, or it could be directions to an important place. The image on the right represents directions to an important place.
