Imagine sleeping under the northern lights, surrounded by snow and protected by a glass igloo. It’s possible in Finland: http://kakslauttanen.fi/en/accommodation/
Yep, this about sums up my high school experience:
I found this today and just had to add to my site. It’s an amazing look at life:
Everything I need to know about life I learned by playing Spider Solitaire
1. So much just depends on the cards youâ€™re dealt.
2. However, itâ€™s next to impossible to win without taking risks.
3. And if youâ€™re not alert and paying attention, youâ€™re just going through the motions and tiring out your mousing finger for no good reason.
4. You have to think ahead.
5. Sometimes â€“ but not always â€“ you can undo the mess you made.
6. Sometimes walking away from a difficult hand and then coming back with a fresh perspective and/or a good nightâ€™s sleep can make all the difference.
7. When you think youâ€™re surely about to lose, some innovative, creative moves along with a good dose of persistence can actually clear things up dramatically.
8. Getting a good start is crucial.
9. Sometimes itâ€™s good to just admit defeat and start all over again.
10. Whenever possible, donâ€™t do anything that dramatically limits your options.
11. Always remember the object (goals) of the game.
12. Sometimes just the right card will come at just the right moment â€“ but you just canâ€™t plan on it.
13. Sometimes what lays underneath is far more valuable than whatâ€™s on the surface.
I’m a fan of the TV show Big Bang Theory which had an alternate version of Rock Paper Scissors game this season. They called it Rock Paper Scissors Lizard Spock. Today I found a t-shirt on cafepress which has the hand signs for this variation.
This past weekend I attended Podcamp Toronto and had an amazing time. One of the big things I took away from the weekend was the idea of Personal Branding. What does it mean to have a Personal Brand?
Now I have three blogs, this one which I consider my personal blog, but not my personal brand. Professionally I have my company blog, Digital Mouse Works where I write about anything to do with computers and technology. I also have my PhotoFrog blog for publishing my pictures. So what is my Personal Brand? Well, I guess it would be a mixture of the three. The question now is, should they all be combined into one blog/website? What do I want to be my Personal Brand? Perhaps the time has come to have personal marketing companies, who will come up with your brand, logos, images etc?
If I am applying for a job, what do I want my Personal Brand to reflect? As personal and professional lines are blurred in the online world, how does this affect what we say and do online?
One final question, do you think it’s a good idea to register andrewrivett.com?
Here are some pictures of our Condo from Halloween. It’s a good thing the owner’s didn’t come by to see it that night!
This is the coolest coffee table I have ever seen. If I could afford the hefty $2500 price tag plus shipping to Canada I’m sure I would be purchasing one! http://www.becausewecan.org/LED_coffee_table_Ripple
