The Thursday Blog Project topic for the week ending December 14th was inspired by one of my favorite TV shows -- How I Met Your Mother. Melissa asked us to write about: I'm going off another idea I got from "How I Met Your Mother." There was an episode where they were talking about being a "stamp tramp." This meant putting a seal of approval on anything and everything, even if it wasn't good.
What person (not a close
friend or family member), place AND thing would you put your stamp of
approval on and stand behind that stamp 100% of the way?
Once upon a time in a land far, far way I had a hard and fast rule that a vacuum couldn't cost me more than $75. (With inflation, in today's standards I'd say $150.) I felt there was no reason at all you should pay more than $75. That is until I saw what a Dyson vacuum could do.
Yes, you may need to take out a loan to get one of these, but they are SOOO worth it. My particular favorite is the pet Dyson. The super powerful one that is built to suck-up the dander and hair that pets leave deep in the carpet. I also like that it's bag-less.
If you're not willing to take out a loan on a vacuum, you can refurbished ones online or if you are lucky like I was you could possibly get an older model on sale if they introduce a new model. (Sure, it might still cost you an arm, but not the leg too.)
This "thing" gets the Froggie Stamp of Approval!
Maybe it was dumb luck, however it happened to me twice so maybe is wasn't.
When I took a recent trip to the Washington D.C./Maryland area I flew in and out of Dulles Airport. Normally, I loath the airport experience; however, my experience at this airport was notable for only good reasons. The worst thing I can think of about my experience was that I couldn't find a McDonalds to purchase my large dollar ice tea at. All of the eating options appeared to be restaurants ranging from Five Guys to actual sit down restaurant chains -- unless I missed something which is quite possible since it was fairly early in the morning when I went on my hunt for food.

There are Too Many to Single One Person Out
I have a hard time picking just one person to talk about here. Instead what I will say is that I will not recommend someone (for whatever reason) unless I fully believe that person is fit to do the job at hand. I take giving a "stamp of approval" of any kind seriously, but the ones I take the most serious the one that I give to people.
Now that I've talked about my "tramp stamps," please take a moment to see what my fellow bloggers have to say about theirs:
