The End of 2012




Hello Troops,

And just when you thought it was safe to wander into the kitchen and microwave a hot dog or two to tide you over until your next meal....

It's BBC's Filthy Cities:  Revolutionary Paris.  Yes, the must see video to take you out of 2012 and into 2013 feeling very thankful you were brought into the world today and not then.  




2012 came in like a lamb and went out like a lion.  It is a year I'm glad to see the backside of.  It is time to march resolutely into 2013, and what better way to usher in the new year than with a walk through the Imaginarium......


Someone who's heart isn't in the cause.
This would be me at most political rallies.



Could be a good series..






The logic of the simple man.



An illustration of true love; caring for others even when angry.



A game more my speed.



A waterfall restaurant.
I don't get the appeal but I have to give it an A for imagination.

Sunday's Videos and The Imaginarium


Excluding the drunk 'In-Laws' 
This is a pretty good description of my family's holiday get togethers :)
How about yours?


 Hello Troops,
Enjoy the two short videos below.  The first shows what a bit of imagination and creativity can do to bring about a change in behavior.   This is an example of the Discipline of Wonder.  It is a discipline I proudly claim to be a disciple of.

The second is a short trailer for a new BBC series called The Wonder of Life.  Again, using imagination to instill a sense of awe and wonder.

The Imaginarium



The Imginarium is rarely used for political purposes, but this cartoon is one of those
rare exceptions.  It encapsulates the problems we face today.


A disturbing license plate from Virginia :)


Someone had a bit of fun with the hot and cold water dispenser in an employee break room.


Brilliant observation :)


Is this an accurate flow chart of how things work in your family?



Are you and I the only ones who claim addresses on this street?



A snow man in New Mexico.


A divorce lawyers business card.
Imagination: A


A Risk living room coffee table.


 You might at first think this display was labeled incorrectly.


Fountain Pens.
 Creativty: A


Never ever start something without an end goal in mind.


No matter what it claims to be,
Somethings aren't what they say they are.
Be a critical thinker.
