Creative packaging design: I stumbled upon this interesting collection of 25 products. Check out the full list if the ones I’m including here interest you. (Source: Bored Panda) I hate when product packaging is so clever you actually don’t want to use the product!
Old Memories When I was a child in arms, I recall my grandfather holding me up to a tree trunk next to his garage. He “helped” me carve my initial into the bark of the tree—basically he did the carving as I was just too young. But I vividly remember this. My mother and grandmother were […]
I read, or a friend of mine suggested—I don’t recall which, that we are in a golden age for television. Numerous excellent programs are available. So, I’ve been thinking about this: Are we really in a golden age for television programming? As a child, we had to center our schedules around our favorite TV programs. If […]
Over the years I’ve made numerous purchases (tens of thousands of dollars) from B&H Photo Video in New York City. They have good prices and a quick turn around. Additionally, I immediately save 8.5% because they don’t bill sales tax. On January 14, 2014, I ordered a totally decked out new Apple Mac Pro. They said it […]

I thought that the ending of Season 1, Episode 3, of John Oliver’s HBO series, “Last Week Tonight” was sheer brilliance. Not only was he funny (He’s always hysterical.), he made a profoundly important point. His point was directed specifically to one topic: climate change. I want to describe what he did and then extend the scope of his point significantly.
For me, with his video GoPro selfies, Alex Chacon, the Adventure Rider, wins the Ultimate Selfie award for 2014! Using his GoPro Hero 3+ on a pole, he shoots 360º video selfies all over the world. The video below is a compilation of some of those. It’s great fun. Here are just 4 photos from the […]
Should you attend Bob Jones University now that it has a new president? His last name isn’t even Jones. Mr. Steve Pettit, the newly appointed university president, was introduced to the student body on May 10th, by the chairman of the board, Larry Jackson. In a frantic attempt to save the institution (in its current form) […]
A week ago today I was hunkered down on the west peak of Mount Tamalpais. I felt as though I were on top of the world because the wind was blasting dense fog straight toward me, just barely over my head. I could reach up and almost touch this ceiling of fog. Coming from the Pacific […]
