It’s a bird! It’s a plane!

It’s a Remote Controlled Superman!

Okay, okay. I will let everyone chip in and buy me a jumbo-tron for my back yard.

Seriously, how amazing is this thing.  Read the description from UnCrate:

Whether you’re looking for a major upgrade to your business’ outdoor seating area or just want to host the best outdoor movie screenings around, the C Seed Outdoor LED TV($TBA) should fit the bill.

Designed by Porsche Design Studio, the C Seed boasts seven LED panels that raise and unfold in 25 seconds to create a seamless, 201-inch 16:9 display with a total of over 725,000 LEDs and a 100,000 Hz refresh rate. The screen is height-adjustable, can rotate up to 135 degrees to the left or right, and is complemented by a robust sound system featuring 6 speakers for the left and right audio channels, as well as three 700W subwoofers. A radio control, digital wireless HD video link, and glass-fiber data lines take care of getting content to the display, and should you worry about the weather, integrated wind, temperature, and laser sensors make sure everything stays safe and sound in bad weather.

Wheelchair-bound Scuba Diver

Sue Austin’s Tedx talk is absolutely inspiring.

So challenged and energized watching her scuba diving video and hearing her talk about the joy she has found by where she has but her focus.

Thanks for sharing Herman.

I am personally committing to writing more letters this year.

Wrote about two a week last year, hoping to for 4 to 5 a week this year.

1. You should join me.

2. If you are looking for some stationary, here you go. May Notes
