A friend of mine sent me to the CEO of Twitter, Evan Williams Blog and this is what was written. It’s simple and brilliant and I decided to steal it…. giving him full credit of course, so he doesn’t sue the pants off of me.
“Starting a company is like landing on the shore of a deserted island.
You have a certain amount of provisions, which you have to make last until you find a way to make the island sustain life—or convince someone to send you more.
You don’t know how big the island is at first or what predators lie in wait.
There’s always a chance someone else will raid your island if it looks fruitful, so you need to shore up your defenses.
Eventually, if you’re successful, you’ll be king of your own prosperous world. If not, you’ll die—or, at least, have to go home.
Either way, it’s a fun adventure (until you get eaten by a tiger).”
I couldn’t agree more. I do have one question though. What’s the CEO of Twitter doing on a Blogger account though. I mean seriously. Hasn’t he heard of another small business out there?
So, check this out. I just found this site called Citizens Of Virtue, and you must go now and see what this is all about and come back here and let’s discuss. First off, the main thing that jumps out at me is the Passionix ad at the top of the page. The product info goes something like this.
Passionix: These pills were developed and patented through the Citizens of Virtue’s own labs. If you have a teenage child who is having difficulty handling the unbridled passions and lusts thrust upon them at this critical time of life, order a bottle of Passionix and help your child take control of those passions before they take control of your child’s life.
Oh yeah, and don’t forget the quote next to the informational brochure.
“Just because it fits doesn’t mean it goes there”
Next you need to check out the store, where you can purchase items such as The LORD Shackle Bracelet, or The Rape of Eve, a book written by Pastor Bryson Grace and Savannah Merks.
Now according to the site something awesome is going to happen in two days and I know I will be waiting in line to see what it is. Will you?
So here’s your assignment. Are you ready? Devour this site. Look at every link, read every word and come here with your opinions. I’d love to know. Is this something your church would link to? Is this something you can someone you know would get behind? What’s the deal?
So there it is peeps. Let’s hear what you have to say about the Citizens Of Virtue. Ready? Go.
So yesterday I came across this sentence written by Diana from Life Is Good.
Almost four months ago I got an email in my Inbox from Ticketmaster notifying me that Glen Hansard and Marketa Irglova, otherwise know as The Swell Season, would be at the historic Ryman Auditorium sometime near the end of September. Being one of my top five albums of all time, it was time to start making plans. The last show Kristin and I went to see there was Damien Rice and it blew us away. I’m convinced that this Wednesday night won’t be much different.
From what I can tell this will be one of only eleven shows that they are doing in America so we’re pretty excited to be able to see it. Anyone out there seen Glen Hansard or The Swell Season before? Any Nashville people planning on going?
The other day Kristin was browsing through one of the many notebooks that we have around the house that the kids draw in and found this little gem. Blue’s old enough now to really start drawing things and he loves to copy things. Currently he is in the middle of making an alphabet book. One page for every letter. I think he’s somewhere near “L” or “M”.
Anyway, I loved this drawing and the attention to detail is awesome. Check out the queen’s hair and Peter’s shield. My favorite is the backwards “N”. So, Blue asked me to blog about this and say, “This is Blue’s drawing”. So here it is. I think it’s awesome.
“Blue how come you didn’t eat any of your lunch today at school?”
“I wanted to pretend to buy lunch.”
“You wanted to pretend to buy lunch?”
“Well, what did you eat when you pretended to buy lunch?”
“Meatloaf, french fries…. carrots… and juice.”
“So you just got in the lunch line and pretended that you paid for lunch and they gave it to you?”
“Do you know that’s stealing?”
“Nope. I was pretending.”
Did you buy or bring lunch to school as a kid?
