So yesterday we were hanging out all day at the GOODHOOD shop in London for the press day that Steve organized. The day started with escorting 15 cases of premium belgian beer from our friends at Duvel-Moortgat from cellar to store to get it chilled and ready for the thirsty members of the press ... is it me or are the press always hungry and thirsty ... who knows ?? i digress ... as we familiarised ourselves with the colours,styles and the plethora of brands from Bernard Wilhelm to Woodwood to Hyde SK the folks of the press started to arrive, from bi-annuals to weeklies to monthlies to the onliners they swarmed in swathes around the stock peppering us with questions ... admittedly instant PR mode isn't the easiest personality switch to make however i think we managed just fine and once there we kinda enjoyed our new personalities ... well maybe steve did !
Here are a few snapshots from the day. Jo one half of Goodhood!!! Looking Good..

Picked this up in Sardinia last week. amazing photos of amazing people!!! Hear are a few more pics from inside.
Well I have now been back in Berlin since Saturday and I must say that I wish I was still laying on the beach in Sardinia. I do not now about you but I find it hard to get back in the swing of things after a week of holiday.
The rest of my week was just like the first bit. We tool long walks on the beach, swam in the warm water and ate fresh seafood. It was our little heaven and our last alone holiday due to the fact that next year when we go the two will be three.
On Friday we had to drive from the south of the island all the way to the north in order to get to the airport that flys to Berlin. I love this as it gives us the opportunity to drive the entire East Coast of Sardinia and enjoy what the island has to offer. Sardinia is pretty much a self sufficient island. They grow and raise all their own food, from Oranges, Apples, Cherries to Cows, Goats, and Sheep. You name it you can find it here. It is amazing everything you eat and drink comes from the island itself. They have their own Beer, their own Cheese, their own salami and of course all the fresh seafood your heart desires.
Here are some photos from the rest of our trip and the drive home.
this was the beach we sat at most days and was just a 5 minute walk down the beach from our hotel!!!
There was quite a bit of this going around on the beach!!!
Sardinian Chips made of wheat!!! Taste kind of like Tortilla Chips
We ate like this pretty much everyday!!!

Our rental. When in Itlay drive Italian!!! The following photos are from our drive up the east coast and into Olbia. We call this the Sardinian Safari, you will see why below. Also keep in mind that these were all taken from inside the car on the roadside!!!
Football on the cliffside anyone? This is a half tunnel through this hillside. pretty amazing to drive through. Here is the inside view!! One thing I forgot about was the fact that Sardinia had run out of Petrol due to it being a holiday there last Monday. Being that there are only two Gas Stations within the 20K of Villasimius!!! When we rolled up to the station we were told that we would have to wait till tomorrow for the gas, then after further inspection we would have to wait till 5pm. Luckily the Attendant was completely wrong and we had to wait an hour!!!
sanecommunications is about talking about the right subject matter, to the right people, in the right tone of voice. Whether it be clothing, muzak, design, passions or hobbies.
yes we are a business ... but we are good people with interests and passions, with an appreciation of others and their opinions so we like to think that this blog is a lil ole insight into who we are ... and an opportunity to 'big up' those who inspire us day to day ...
be gentle, focused and centred. do not be an all screaming and shouting whirling dervish of bullshit as that stinks a country mile away of insecurity.
here will be pics, snippets, videos, diatribes and the beginnings of conversations ...
