New York City
Everybody want to be a part of it. It’s the concrete jungle where dreams are made of! It has to be New York.
One of the most special and influential places in the world. A place where everyone has to either live or visit once in their lives… But don’t stay there too long or you’ll become too hard. Our Novelty Rugs pretty much sums new York up. Taxis and buildings. The City that never sleeps truly has some of the greatest attractions in the world, all in one place.
Even one of the greatest films in the world was filmed there and if you weren’t thinking of Home Alone 2 while you were reading that then I must say I’m a little disappointed in you. Oh well, bygones be bygones.
Empire State building, Times Square, Central Park and the Statue of Liberty, just some of the fantastic and fascinating places to visit in the Big Apple.
Everybody wants to go to New York. It holds such a special place in this tiny little world of ours. It might actually be the centre of the earth.
But one thing is for sure… It’s where all the magic happens!
Magic in the form of a rug on your wall or floor… You Decide!
The national flag of the United Kingdom. It’s what brings countries together… (Well, in theory anyways). It was James VI of Scotland where the origin of the Union Jack Flag came from. Coming into power as he gained the Thrones of England and Ireland, he brought the crowns together in one personal union.
The Mixture of the flag is combined by England, Wales Scotland and Ireland. Each part of the flag is as followed… For England and Wales it is St George, the red cross. For Scotland it is the white saltire, representing St Andrew and for Ireland, St Patrick’s flag, the red saltire.
This Flag is also used by the Royal Navy, commissioning Warships and Submarines.
For special occasions such as the Queen’s birthday, the Union Jack flag is flown from the jackstaff.
“Hey Dude!......... Where’s my Camper Van?
The Campervan really came to fame in the 1960’s. Hippies travelled all over the place in them, and pretty much lived in them. It was also popular with many surfers in search of those big waves.
Know as the bus, the production of the VW Volkswagen Campervan is all but over. It is estimated that over 10 million Volkswagen Vans were produced around the world of the past 60 years and have always remained hugely popular because of the driving experience they offer.
Big stars such as Bob Dylan and the Beach Boys, used the Campervan for their album covers. it has also been reported that Steve Jobs, owned a van in the 70’s, but actually sold it to fund a circuit board he used to build a computer, that eventually became Apple.
But our most famous crew of detectives and meddling kids, is of course Scooby Doo and his crew! never solved a mystery without it and never got to a case without it. If it wasn’t for their campervan, a lot of men and women, pretending to be monsters and ghost would have gotten away with their crimes. So Scooby Doo has a lot to owe to the Campervan.
The Van over the years has been given several nicknames, just like the Beetle. Names such as microbus and minibus, but the most famous and popular nickname given to to the van, the Hippie Van, due to the counterculture movement of the 60’s.
Butterflies are truly beautiful creatures of the Earth. Mainly known as a day flying insect, it’s life cycle consists of four parts in it’s life. From egg to larva, to pupa to Adult.
The earliest known Butterfly is on record being over 45 million years ago.
Some of the species of butterflies are known to be harmful to plants because during their larva stages this can be very harmful to crops. Where as other butterflies help with pollination of some plants and even play a part when they are caterpillars, they eat harmful insects that damage plant life.
Being so colourful, they are often used for paintings and photography as they offer such unique and fascinating pictures for everyone to be in awe of their beauty. But with the Butterfly, comes, the Butterfly Effect. In chaos theory, a flutter of a butterflies wing can cause a tornado halfway around the world. Not sure I believe this one myself, but it makes a for a brilliant concept.
I think the theory behind it is if you change one thing in anything you do, it is more likely to have a different outcome. So it’s more like a ripple effect. Change one thing, change everything.
