Nexogon Ball

I spent last weekend with Tim Johnson from New Elementary at Bricktastic in Manchester. I couldn’t resist building my own BIGGER and more colourful NexoBALL after playing with his ball made from Nexogons (Part 27255) all weekend.

It’s like a LEGO stress ball!

Mark Stafford Killed Teal

LEGO Colour 107 , Dark Turquoise or Teal is a lovely colour.

Mark Stafford Killed Teal

Mark’s first set as a LEGO designer, was the Exo-Force Dark Panther. He had the choice of making it in either Purple or Teal, and whichever colour he chose, the other would be cut from the LEGO colour palette.

Obviously he chose purple…so Mark Stafford Killed Teal.

How do you like your LEGO hotdog?

There are a few different ‘flavours’ or ‘cooked states’ of LEGO hotdog now.

Sand Blue – frozen

Flesh – raw

Red – cooked

Dark Red – well done

Black – burnt to a crisp.

 Forget the steak, how do you like your LEGO hotdog cooked?

Now LEGO just need to make some wholemeal hotdog buns 🙂

The Special Relationship

The Special relationship

The British Prime Minister, Theresa May, otherwise known as ‘Trump’s Maggie’ met with President Trump on Friday 27th Jan 2017 in the Oval Office at the White House. Their Special relationship status was denoted by the table prepared with a single red rose from the ever charming President Trump. Soon it was time to exchange gifts.

Thankfully Theresa (or Tessie FooFoo as Trump likes to call her) arrived prepared with her gift – a Quaich, a Scottish silver drinking dish that is a symbol of friendship and trust.

In return, Trump gave her a nice shiny black rifle to protect herself from all the immigrants entering Europe. What a gent!

God Bless Help America 😉
