Conner and Cayden Long

This is so inspiring.

I pray to raise boys like these two.

Personal Jumbo-Tron

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.

MTR launches MTR Give

The Memphis Teacher Residency connects your generosity directly to the needs in their classroom with their new site MTR Give.

What a great way to support a teacher and support education.

How it works is a teacher shares a need, like Tara Smith’s need for a Document Camera. Then she crowd sources the funds it takes, $325, to get one.  So 17 people can all chip in $25 to help her get this tool.

Pretty Simple. Pretty Genius.

Check it out and consider supporting a MTR Teacher today!

Follow the Frog

The best advertisement I have seen.  Maybe ever.

4 minutes ago I didn’t really care about the rain forest. I mean I cared, but what am I going to do. And I own a paper company, so it is not like I am against using trees for our good. (I also like paper towels.)

But right now, I will never forget the frog.

This ad is sharp, funny, really well made, smart, cool, funny again and again, and very informative in all the right ways.

I am educated and I clearly feel empowered to make a little bit of difference with my purchases now.

So good.  Thanks for sharing Keith.
