Information | Knowledge | Wisdom

The other day, my son had done something we didn't approve of and so we took his cell phone away and access to the computer. He loves technology for what it offers, both good and not so good: YouTube, social networks for kids or not (myspace) and research for school.

Inspire. Do.

I found this Inspirational Image to be both interesting and "spot on."

The kids love making tents with blankets and such so we… Continue

Who doesn't like 80's music? Okay, the song is a little cheesy, but take a look at this in 4 x YouTube HD! We've all see a lot of YouTube in our time, but this is really cool and probably very time consuming. Four YouTube Videos running simultaneously to form one video. Click play at the top to have them auto synced. I wish I would have thought of this...…
