Five Friday Favorites


Everyday while surfing the web I come across so many things that entertain, inspire, and educate me.  So, I'm choosing five of those to share with you here.  Enjoy!


Every time I come across something on the web that includes the words, Thank-You notes, I smile.  As a card designer myself, it's good to see the use of pen and paper hasn't died.  {Photo credit: The New York Times}


This looks comfortable, right?  {Photo credit: gadgetpics.com}

My Life With Dogs: Who Let The Dogs Out (Natural Light Photography)


You can take great pictures with natural light.  No extra equipment is required, just your camera and chosen subject.  I tend to navigate towards this type of setting.  It's my comfort zone.  There is no doubt that nature provides the best light.

Overcast days are good for natural light photography.  The cloud cover acts as a diffuser.  I crave these kind of days.

The other day (you guessed it, overcast) I had every intention on raking the yard, cleaning out the flower beds, and weeding the garden.  The boys were running around the yard enjoying the fresh air.  Within five minutes, I dropped the rake and picked up the camera.  No regrets, the yard work will still be there, the moment may not.

Nirvana


Today is the 20 year anniversary of Kurt Cobain's death.  A day that resonates with several people for various reasons.  His family, his friends, and those who respected his music.  To reflect on where he would be in the music world today wouldn't be a good use of our time.  Instead, let's appreciate what he already gave us. He's inspired many others so that we can live through his talent in music.

*****

Last year I placed an order from a local record shop for a copy of Nirvana's Nevermind on vinyl.  It took forever.

Finally, months later the owner called.  He told my record was in, but it wasn't was I ordered. I was pissed. He explained to me that they sent something else instead. 

As mentioned above I was after the band's second album that was originally released in 1991.  His distributor sent Nevermind, only this one was the 20th Anniversary Deluxe Edition.  


So, not only did I get the original album, but there's also live tracks, the B-sides, studio sessions, and unreleased material.  A great set to have in my vinyl collection.

As I was getting ready for work this morning I heard a familiar voice coming from the television.  It was my favorite pirate, Johnny Depp.  My calendar is marked to go see his new movie, Transcendence.  Check out his interview here.  {Photo credit:  today.com}

Being an entrepreneur isn't easy.  Especially if you wear all the hats like I do.  Have you ever picked up a copy of Entrepreneur?  It's one of my favorite business magazines.  Check out this article they recently shared on their Facebook page where they give you 14 tools to help you manage your social media. {Photo credit: Entrepreneur.com}

My Life With Dogs: First Day of Spring 2014


We are all very happy that Spring has arrived!  I captured this image of Disco right after their evening meal, around 5pm.


It sure looks better than the image I took this morning before leaving for work.  Crazy right?  First day of Spring and we woke up to an inch of snow.  No worries, the warm day melted it all.

P.S.  The image above is where the idea to post five came from.  I pass these trees several times throughout my weekly travels.  I have a serious obsession with trees.  The first step is admitting you have a problem, right?
