The Internet to the Inner-net
+gopi Kallayil   Chief Evangelist, Google, Brand Marketing
Excerpt from Gopi's recent book, The Internet to the Inner-net, available in bookstores and online at Amazon, Barnes & Noble, Hay House. http://www.barnesandnoble.com/w/the-internet-to-the-inner-net-gopi-kallayil/1122315145?
With our technology today, we can connect with almost anyone to do this exercise. We can talk about what we're grateful for on a cell phone or in a text message. If you have older children, you can check in by texting. You can pick up your phone or text your daughter in college, who's not contacted you for three days, and ask, "What are you grateful for today?" Isn't that a much better way to connect than asking, "Why haven't you called me?

This was the big one: a huge event to raise funds for our #SingForSyria campaign to sponsor a Syrian family in Toronto. By singing Imagine, it was also a tribute to John Lennon on the 35th anniversary of his tragic passing. The night featured guest singer Reuben Bullock, frontman for his band Reuben And The Dark (http://reubenandthedark.com)

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Shepherd
The Shepherd relates the story of a De Havilland Vampire pilot, going home on Christmas Eve 1957, whose aircraft suffers a complete electrical failure en route from RAF Celle  in northern Germany to RAF Lakenheath in Suffolk. Lost in fog and low on fuel, he is met and led (or shepherded) to a disused RAF dispersal field by the pilot of a De Havilland Mosquito fighter-bomber of World War II vintage, who has apparently been sent up to guide him in.
