 Who doesn't love baby ducks?  I mean seriously?  

What if those baby ducks were with their mother and they were trying to cross a 6 lane busy highway?!

I watch this and think 3 things...

A) PRAY it turns out okay.  

B) Think OMG why would they EVER try to cross.  

C) This would NEVER happen in Canada!

I've been a citizen of this wonderful city for over 30 years and have seen a lot of changes, much like yourself.  I found this article the other day and thought that you could not only relate but come up with a few other ideas of your own.

For one, I noticed there is no reference to Sam The Record Man?  Huh?

It’s a Friday afternoon. Been a long week of tedious resumes and soul-sucking interviews. Wait. What’s this? A 4-pack of Résum-Ale!? The cover letter reads: “Thanks for taking the time to review my application. Resume’s on the box, portfolio’s on the bottles. Bottoms up!” 

HR’s never had such an easy decision! 

Who’s the lucky hire? Amateur beer-maker and professional graphic artist Brennan Gleason. The guy who forever changed the hiring standards of every company he ever applied to. Ok, I wrote the Cover Letter, but that’s not the point. The point is creativity. This guy has it. The point is beer. This guy gives it. Congrats to Brennan on the new job.


I want to be a tree

Forests of Death

A few weeks ago I wrote about how easy it is to become an organ donor. On an equally positive/morbid note, this week I’m writing about how easy it is to become a tree.

Instead of a costly, complicated burial, consider a biodegradable urn that would use your ashes to feed the growth of a beautiful tree. You’d help improve the environment, and would be immortalized forever. Or at least until the tree dies. Hopefully it sprouts to begin with. I imagine the seeds and saplings need to be tended to in order to ensure we grow tall and green, but that’s why we have children. 

Maybe in the future there will be entire forests of dead people. We’ll all be one with nature. All funerals will be picnics. I prefer that idea to being buried in a field of tombstones or shoved in a concrete wall. ...

The Gift of Life

This incredible bucket list story has captured the world. A 64-year-old heart recipient is on a mission to complete her young donor’s unfulfilled bucket list. A second chance at life for both donor and recipient. How awesome is that?

You know what’s even more awesome? Donating a heart. Or a lung or kidney or eye or whatever. The bucket list story came out just after a friend of mine signed up to be an organ donor upon her death. She thought the process would be harder, expecting extensive forms, consultations, maybe some tests, etc. Nope. 5 minutes online. Click. Done. She’s ready for harvest!

Organ donation has truly caught up with the times. Many of us drivers become organ donors with just a little check in a box on our license application. Now we can all easily save a life or 5 when our number is up.

25% of eligible ...

Every once in a while you stumble upon something that is really jaw dropping.  For me, innovations and inventions usually do that and this one takes the cake.

Some people don't have to imagine what it's like to have a child who can't walk.  I have never had to experience that but I know it would be an incredible hardship when you first get the news, but like life... you have to deal with it as best you can.

And that's exactly what Debby Elnatan did.  Only she took it a step further (pardon the pun).  A Northern Ireland company has turned Debby's idea for a walking harness into a product that will transform the lives of countless disabled children.

Debby is a music therapist and came up with the concept to help her young son Rotem, who has cerebral palsy.  Watch this short video of Debby's amazing invention and ...
