During a brief day-dreaming session at work I found an answer to my most pressing problem ...... namely what do I want for a retirement gift when I finally leave work early next year.

I had been avoiding that question for days because frankly I just wanted to fade away without a lot of fuss but apparently my fellow co-workers have convinced me that is not an option for me under any conditions.

So I'm going to have a party complete with all the trimmings.

Now back to the gift.

It's obvious, a gift subscription from Axiom would do the trick. It would give me something that I could enjoy for many, many years to come.

Now I know that nothing like that is found on these pages but I fired off an email to Axiom and in less than 24 hours received a friendly reply from Amie letting me know that they can in fact provide a gift certificate. In fact I believe that they will now mention it on their web site.

I'm impressed, first to receive a response so quickly and then to have a "new" request positively addressed. This is the mark of a company that knows the real meaning of customer satisfaction.

Many thanks to Axiom!

That's so cool! I've come to expect nothing but the best from this here company. Staying relatively small definitely has its benifits. There's no bureaucracy to wade through in order to get new ideas adopted.

We're working away busily on this one! Just a poll - what sort of denominations would you like to see? (Okay, we'd all like to see $1,000 denoms, but . . .)

What do you think is reasonable? $25, $50, $100 and so on? Call to place a specific amount (which would work out best if you were doing an office retirement gift, for example).

Also, I was thinking you should have the option of either sending the gift certificate via e-mail or snail mail - or is snail mail too 90s?

I have long wanted to have a wedding registry, too - wouldn't that be fun? Instead of getting dishes you'll never use, you get an entertainment system! Okay - maybe I'm getting ahead of myself.

Any thoughts?

I think denoms of $25/$50/$100 would work fine.

I think a snail mail "receipt" would be cool. Though the gift certificate itself would be electronic. It's nice to have a fancy little official looking piece of paper to hand someone (since it is a gift). But it shouldn't be needed to cash in your award. If it's lost, the owner shouldn't be s.o.l. Much like how an e-ticket is used on an airline.

Wedding Registry - now that's an idea! I'm sure guys everywhere would like that idea. Wives may be a harder sell. Not everyone is as cool as you, Amie.

be sure to include a small box of chocolates like vermont teddybear does. if it went snail mail, you could include the full color catalog which naturally would include all of your products.

Oh, man - the last thing we need around here is to keep chocolates on site! We're chocoholics to a t - boys and girls! Cute idea though - we'll ponder that one.

How high should we go?

I'd think that $500 would be a good top end.

Also, why isn't everyone posting in the show pic thread!!??
