We highlighted this waaaay back around the time it was released, but decided to give it a second showing today for a few reasons:
- After all this time, some folks will have forgotten about it;
- Countless others will not have seen it the first time around; and
- My two sons really, really like it…
Sometimes you just get so busy, so focused, …that you lose sight of the important, aware only of what’s necessary.
Ever feel that way? Yeah, I figured as much.
So rather than touch on current events today, or anything which has so occupied our thoughts for the past several months (campaign, election, POST-election, holidays, the “Fiscal Cliff!”, etc), I’m going to….not.
Just for today, I’m going to put my numerous news-feeds down, and turn my music UP.
By request, we’re bringing back an old blog favorite: The Piano Guys. Included is their latest (which guest stars Lindsey Stirling), plus a 2nd piece which was released back in November 2012.
Both are excellent, and represent TPG’s two highly distinct video styles. The ‘Mission Impossible’ clip is fun, campy and visually entertaining right to the end. In contrast, ‘LOTR’ can be enjoyed just as much with your eyes open or closed:
Happy Veterans Day today, once again. Even though it is always officially November 11th, today is the federal holiday.
But two days, or even a week, wouldn’t be enough time to express our appreciation for what these brave men and women do for our nation.
Our veterans exhibit extraordinary strength, courage & sacrifice on a daily basis, and they deserve every last ounce of gratitude that we can offer them, and more.

Everyone loves a deal, right? And one of the BEST deals is getting twice as much of something as you expected, …right? Heck, we see versions of the 2-for-1 deal everywhere:
- buy 1, get 1 free
- tools that do TWO tasks, rather than just one
- double cheeseburgers
- 2 heads being better than just one

So, we’re offering a very special 2-for-1 deal today:

What can I say? I’m a giver.
