    Thanks Architectural Centre, for organising the Beaven/AGM event at no charge. The $20 plus booking fee for Timberlake is a bit steep, I think I’ll just buy his latest CD!

    I too am a bit confused with all this Timber product being touted. It used to be easy – we had Timberland work boots. Then Justin emerged with Britney and we had Timberland the singer. Then I think we had another Justin, but this one was a producer, and was a Timberlake, not a Timberland. Although now Timberland (the singer, not the shoe company) is producing as well. Now we have an architect, also called Justin, who is a Timberlake, and produces buildings. Luckily, so far at least, he doesn’t sing. Personally, I blame the Canadians – all that timber, all those lakes.
