Spring is here. Check out this amazing video of this guy literally flying and then go outside!
Today (August 26) is Dog Appreciation day. I actually took a few extra minutes this morning to walk my dogs longer than usual. Not much when you consider how much fun they had. You may have seen this video of a lab sitting by his owner’s casket. The man was killed in action.
What a great day to appreciate your dog – and appreciate members of the military!
This Saturday (March 12, 2011), thousands of Jacksonville runners and walkers will gather downtown for the 34th annual Gate River Run.The 15k race the largest in the country and hosts some of the fastest runners in the world.
It also brings out some of the most hilarious costumes. People run the 9 plus miles in all sorts of outfits and one of those people is Carey Hepler, who always runs the race dressed in a grass skirt.
Hepler is working to raise awareness for the homeless and uses the Gate River Run each year as a place to collect thousands of shoes and t-shirts for the homeless. He’ll be there today, so if you head down to pick up your race packet, remember to bring a few things to donate.
Just look for the man in a grass skirt! Oh, and spread the word on Facebook.

It’s hard to believe how time flies. Almost 5 years ago, Yovia put up it’s shingle and started recruiting new customers. One of the first customers was none other than “Chief Chicken” (aka: Steve) of RubberChickenCards.com.
The Chief is one of the most talented animators I know. Over the years he’s put together hundreds of hilarious animated shorts that are perfect for any birthday, Valentine’s Day, and just about any holiday in between.
I took some time today to prep for an upcoming campaign and found myself laughing out loud as two of my favorite characters – “The Breeder Brothers”. Listen as they explain their diet plan. It involves cutting down “One Half” each of the major food groups, including Hot, Spicy, Grease and Beer.
The web produces all kinds of amazing images and stories. As I was browsing the news today, I came across an article on AOL that caught my attention. According to the AOL story, Huang Yuanfan, 84 and Zhang Ruifang, 101 – of China – both reported growing horns.
Apparently, doctors try to remove them, and they just grow back.
Stephen Martin brings up a great point in his recent TechCruch article titled The Enterprise of One.
Martin states that during every economic downturn, individuals and businesses are forced to ‘reset’. It is during this process (Martin compared to cleaning out a closet), NEW INNOVATION is born. He then goes on to point out that each of our personal spheres of influence is worth something. Our connections, experience, influence, authority – and even our personalities – help drive US out of OUR OWN economic situation.
The governments and corporations of the world surely will always play a role in the world’s markets. This will likely always affect each person. What is changing however, is an individual’s ability to leverage THEMSELVES as form of currency.
I am not sure there is a particular name for this current economic turmoil (Call it OH Ten?), it seems that individuals and entrepreneurs today have the chance to help drive the ‘reset’ of our age in a way that past generations did not.
We have the Internet.
This gives us the unprecedented ability to reach out and take control of our own incomes, our own networks and our own destiny.
Welcome to 2011!
