future me

So, if you could write a note to yourself to read in one year or 5 years or 10 years, what would you say? Well, here's your chance.

Future Me. Org

From the site:
here's the story:
two fellas started this here site so that you could write yourself a letter to be delivered at a later date. we've all had to do them in high school and college. it's sorta cool to receive a letter from yourself about where you thought you'd be a year (two years? more?) later. FutureMe.org is based on the principle that memories are less accurate than emails. we strive for accuracy.

I've thought about doing this. I think I would like to send one to my kids that they could read on their 18th birthday or some other significant milestone. Maybe I'll send one to myself to read on my 50th birthday or 25th anniversary. Or maybe a mission statement for our family for one year from now and see how we're doing?

What do you think? Is this a cool site or a waste of time?

the fun theory

The internet is full of some really great stuff. Watch this video from The Fun Theory.com. I like what the site says:

This site is dedicated to the thought that something as simple as fun is the easiest way to change people’s behaviour for the better. Be it for yourself, for the environment, or something entirely different, the only thing that matters is that it’s change for the better.

After watching this little video, right away got thinking about how I could make those everyday, mundane chores a bit more fun. I know for me, even just turning on the radio helps. But maybe putting on an old pair of socks and 'dusting' my wood floors? Shooting hoops with the dirty laundry? Do you have any tips that back up the Fun Theory? Let's hear them.

a full moon

In keeping with the October/Halloween/Autumn theme, here's a photo I snapped a few nights back. If you're interested, I'll share how I did it.

In other words, if you want to know, leave a comment asking.

best dollar spent ... ever

At least that's what my daughter would have to say about this little gem she picked up at the dollar store.
