Many of you asked what we need for our home together. Our response is taken from the wisdom of Star Trek. In case you hadn’t noticed, star ships have little space to store things collected along the journey through the universe. Instead, travelers on star ships strive to collect experiences.

We also look at our lives as a such a journey. So, if you truly feel like you want to add fuel to our travels through life, below we have listed several vendors we use to pursue our adventures. 

To be sure you do not gift us too many Old Speckled Hens at the George Inn, let us know what vendors you choose by commenting at the bottom of this page so others can see your choices. (See running total for each vendor. You can click on their name to reach their gift page.)
