Patio Design Ideas

This is a screenshot of…I went there so you don’t have to.

If you went looking for the writing of lahikmajoe and found yourself browsing through patio furniture, here’s the skinny on what happened.

Originally the .com address took you to the tea blog. There was plenty of traffic there, as it was an irreverent and comical attempt at a blog about tea drinking. It was a lot of fun, and it’s entirely possible that I’ll find myself writing about tea again in the future.

However, it won’t be happening at the former address. That url has been bought by pirates. Well, I don’t know the correct term for such people, but pirates is how I’m going to refer to them. Ostensibly, it’s a site selling patio furniture. Click on any links provided and it’ll immediately become clear that they’re not selling any patio furniture.

The only reason the url was bought was to then sell it back to me. Although it was my mistake not to renew the account, I’ve got no intention of spending what they’re asking for the address. It’s simply not worth it to me.

Let me make this very clear, though:

I am not selling patio furniture. 

If you’ve gone looking for the writing of lahikmajoe and/or Ken Macbeth Knowles, it’ll become clear that there’s the patio furniture-related and non patio furniture-related content. This page will continue to focus on the latter.

Incidentally, I did not come to this decision lightly. When my former page was originally bought by the patio furniture pirates, I briefly considered accepting this as a fortuitous twist of fate. I hadn’t been a patio furniture expert, but maybe it was time I became one.

The first thing I could do would be to fix the atrocious English on the patio furniture pirates’ page. The text was clearly written by a translation program. Or simply really poorly written.

So I could clean up the content, link to real pages where actual patio furniture was being sold. Then I could get some Google and Facebook ads and become some sort of patio furniture mogul. Sounds good in theory, doesn’t it? You’d buy patio furniture from me. I’m certain you would.

But, alas, it’s simply not to be. I’d send you in the right direction to such a site, but I simply don’t know any.

I do know a site that looks like it’s selling patio furniture. It’s got nothing to do with me.

Nothing at all.


  1. Did they actually contact you and ask you for money to buy back the URL? Did they ask for the ransom in pieces of eight, perhaps?

    I kind of like the idea of you branching out and becoming a patio furniture mogul. I mean, you’ve got the URL and all. It’s got your name on it. This might be a fortuitous turn of events, after all. You might have found your calling.

    I don’t have a patio, just a little porch, but I would totally come to you for advice. You seem wise in the way of patioing.

    1. I was contacted by someone at some point, and there was an offer made, which I promptly ignored and almost forgot…until you asked the question. Now I’ll go back to forgetting again. Now, wasn’t that easy.

  2. No one in Europe has a big enough place outdoors to call it a patio. So I was wondering if that would be “Patiocita furniture” or “Patio furniturette”

    No one can say I’m not alert this morning. Of course, there are only 15 more minutes of morning!
