My All in All in Business

The Power of One in Business

Hearing Marvin Dirksen (excellent speaker) tonight at the hall, then popping in, virtually, to see the Christians at the BraveHeart Women business community there was this video by Lifehouse Everything Drama. Thinking on the arts media to portray interpretation of truths. Over a million views, this must have struck a chord with a great many people!

Seems to me the world is full of distraction sent deliberately to pull us down and destroy. Especially a person who has found truth in a world that calls it something else. He didn’t say there would be no trouble…but that we’d be in trouble. Do you know who He is? The Light, the Truth, and the Door. Peace.

He also said “I must be about my father’s business”.

Happy Chinese New Year!

Oh how I miss my Chinese friends in Vancouver BC!

This is a long weekend here: Valentine’s Day, Family Day (so Monday is a holiday).

So this blog post is dedicated to my Asian friends, and it pains my heart to be separated from you, though I am so bad at keeping in touch. Work is too hard! Thank goodness for communications like telephone, email, FaceBook…

When first tried a mooncake, I thought: Wow! Like fudgey, peanut-flavoured, smooth and yummy…with a surprise salty, grainy egg yolk in the middle all cutely done in a pretty stamped pastry…very rich and sweet ~

But, so many are passed back and forth between friends and family–people get sick of them by the time they are teens. Lots of beautiful tins and special gift bags exchanged.

And here is a so-sweet note sent in a mailer from Hong Kong with some anime-type figurines we bought on eBay (which came quickly on the 31st of December, and we had only ordered just a short time before). Came with magnet gift, seller name gorgor16.

Google Buzz

When I arrived home this evening (from study of scripture) I checked out Twitter…which has been boring me lately, but hope waxes eternal.

And I saw a tweet “Watch Bill McIntosh Live Every Tuesday” which I saw was a right now live chat on marketing.

So there I was giving it 20 seconds and almost left when he was talking about Contest Burner. But I stayed on for a few seconds more and he asked where everyone was from and said he’d give a shout-out. So I was hooked and engaged for a a bit and became really interested. Even though I lost focus a  few times during the chat…

Anyway, I like the voice over for Google Buzz.

It will roll out in batches, and will show up on the left-side under “inbox” in Gmail which presently says “star” for me.

Basically you will use your Google Profile as your dashboard, and it will be a social tool available on your Gmail.

Good stuff.

Popular Sharing Links

“Where do you get all those cool crazy links from?”

If you want to learn to snag stuff with a whip, use Sketchpad, StumbleUpon something neat, find out how social gaming is improving education, read the most popular stories…

It’s all here, right now. Who needs TV?

Skype Webcam

Logitech QuickCam Communicate Deluxe and it came very quickly…took it out of the package, plugged it in, popped in the disc (unplugged it while reading the little booklet that said “don’t plug it in until we tell you”), plugged it back in and poof, it works. Ordered from Newegg.

Sandy in Australia said she wanted me to hear about her new project so I called her on Skype which I saw on the RBMP forum. It was before midnight for me, and just about noon for her…she has no webcam, just headphones/mic and my mic didn’t work…so it was kind of silly.

Anyway, after I hung up I looked around, tired, but decided there was no way that the smart guys would make it hard for me, so I pulled it out and plugged it in a different port and voila! The mic was detected and I did a nice test with Skype and everything’s Kosher.
