10 essentials: ryan

2. Bowers & Wilkins Speakers. Their design is fantastic and the sound quality is excellent. I love music so they’re a must have.

3. Classic Cars, especially the Triumph TR3—all models. I love the history and tradition of Triumph, their cars and motorcycles.

4. Chesterfield sofas. I love their tradition and I love leather.

5. Christmas.

6.  GQ Magazine is one of my favorite magazines.  It has a classic heritage yet continues to evolve.  It is always different and always extremely well written.

7. Navy. My favorite color—it’s classic yet modern so it will never be out of style.

8. The stratus bed. The design is beautiful and slipcovers can be very modern and are always classic.

9. The 60’s, “Mad Men”. I love the styles and the JFK era intrigues me.

10. Nantucket. It’s really beautiful so I appreciate their strict rules on new architecture—not to mention the fresh seafood.

happy new year!

Best wishes for a happy, healthy, and prosperous New Year, from all of us at CB2.


recipe: easy shrimp cocktail

Defrost pre-cooked colossal size shrimp from Trader Joe’s and serve on a bed of sliced lemons—their cocktail sauce is delicious too.

Fancy, savory, protein.


recipe: easy goat cheese dip

Place goat cheese in a small baking dish:
pour on your favorite marinara
heat in oven or microwave until hot.

Voila!—dip for melba toast.

Saucey, salty, amore.

Thanks to amy, product manager’s assistant, for this submission.


new year, new days

simple diary Starting 2010 as a clean slate, most of us are optimistic for a Happy New Year. What better way to take note of it than with Keel’s simple diary?

We acknowledge our thoughts every time we update our web pages or text a message, now here’s the perfect place to record them.

With limited choices to summarize how your day was, such as “a gallop, a pickle or jumping through hoops”, edited options help keep you focused and require less energy to maintain a daily journal.

Included are daily quotations such as “Imagination is the foundation of reality” and “Technology fooled us”. And thoughtful questions are posed such as “You are too calm to be nervous. Yes or No”.

Maybe a daily check-in would maintain some perspective when you got a parking ticket? Or, help you remember a triumph? At the very least, even the most mundane Wednesday could be slightly more humorous and thought-worthy.
