It’s been around a year since the “Colonel Tiki’s Cove” matchbook showed up on the site. Today, We move to a new theme and a new URL. Reset all your pointers to http://www.coloneltiki.com everyone: The Colonel is officially ready for public consumption. Colonel Tikus von Rhothgar was my mother’s maternal grandfather. Tikus’s father came from a line of men who worked in the Dutch East India Company – Tikus himself was born at sea near Palau Tikus in Indonesia (hence his name). I’ve decided to honor him by renaming the entire basement “Colonel Tiki’s Cove.” He’ll also be my nom de boire here at CTDIF, now re-named for him.
So welcome to the new site and new relaunch: The layouts are due to change as I refine them and update them, thanks for coming along. It’s been about 2 and a half years since I started this blog adventure and I hope to continue along for many more.
Look for a new update about our yearly Summer event: Tiki-Kon soon. This year promises to be a load of fun. The secret theme?
