Cool, +Daniel Tucker , I’ve had the great pleasure of seeing Shantala live in a very tiny venue - so intimate and beautiful! I can’t wait to see them live again someday. Benji is an AMAZING musician and Heather’s voice is just angelic!

Local is important. No, critical for some services and products and experiences we want. Your thoughts?
 
Local and Online Blending

I'm noodling around ideas of local. Here's the start of such ideas. I'd love to know your thoughts.

Well, here’s Bella, doing her imitation of a sea otter on an ocean of wool rug…we found her when she was a teensy kitten, on our side yard one cold night about 8 years ago. For years she was more like a feral cat who lived with us, wouldn’t let us pick her up, etc. Then she warmed up and now she’s cuddly cat. Love Miss Bella!

Oops! I already shared but forgot to comment that I am in the first 20 seconds or so, it’s my 2 seconds of FAME! Mwahahahahahaa! :) Thanks for the fun of doing the video, Chris. If you don’t watch the Secret Business Show yet, you’ll want to -- Chris shares a lot of valuable content about marketing and interviews interesting people. :)

If you want the inside drinking game for this episode, it's counting up how many times I say "things." Oh lordy. I have to purge that word from my vocabulary. +Katherine Bull made me remove the word "things" from my Google+ book. I should've had her help me do that here, too. : )

this looks to be a great resource for parents of kids with autism.
 
Do we need another social network? Yes, this one for autistic kids proves we do

The debate happens all the time. Do we really need another social network? Here http://www.myautismteam.com/ shows that parents of autistic kids do need a new social network. I think we'll see more and more of these "vertical social networks" come along over the next year. Why? Because Facebook and Google+ aren't good places to discuss this kind of stuff.

Anyway, here I meet the founder and talk about the development of these kinds of social networks and why his hit a nerve.

I Believe In Love (In Defense of Valentine’s Day)

There are some who poo-poo Valentine’s Day, often with contempt in their voices, claiming that it’s just a “hallmark holiday” dreamed up to move product. I don’t know about that -- from what I can find online, the day has been about love all along -- hundred or thousands of years before hallmark was founded.

One of the possible origin of Valentine’s Day stories centers around St. Valentine continuing to perform marriages for soldiers and their mates, even after Rome declared that soldiers should be single.

"One legend contends that Valentine was a priest who served during the third century in Rome. When Emperor Claudius II decided that single men made better soldiers than those with wives and families, he outlawed marriage for young men. Valentine, realizing the injustice of the decree, defied Claudius and continued to perform marriages for young lovers in secret. When Valentine's actions were discovered, Claudius ordered that he be put to death.” (from the history.com article, below)

If you ask me, this isn’t that far from people marrying same-gender couples when the law says it’s not ok. It’s about the Love, people.

Anyway, one thing my friends hear me say frequently is this: Love Always Wins. Today we get the chance to really revel in the Love. Celebrate it, laugh with it, take your clothes off and dance naked in the warm rain of it!

If you follow the commercialized hoard where the holiday is concerned, that’s cool if that’s what you want to do. Me? I’ll believe in Love and hold it in my heart every day, no matter how Pollyanna or trite that sounds. Today gives pause to reflect and draw attention to Love. Gifts or no, cards or no -- this day makes me smile, even when I’ve been without a partner. And that’s always a gift.

Love always wins. xoxo.

This holiday celebrates love, romance and the story of St. Valentine.

Happiest of Valentine’s Days, friends! My small gift: A poem (rated PG or R lite…). Read it to your honey and enjoy. Big love to you. xo!


Indigo

Sleepy skin on sleepy skin,
cheek to chest, I breathe you in,
to the land of Nod we're halfway up,
when desire drips, tips the cup.

Wanting spills all over us,
a darkened, hushed, and crimson lust,
mix of chemistry and trust,
we mustn't, too tired, but then,

we must.

Reaching deep inside you find,
the lock is turned, I unwind,
exotic olive on alabaster,
find my heart, spinning faster.

Glowing moon above,
illuminates this scene of love,
delicious feelings bodies know,
whispering sighs in indigo.

Interesting thoughts (ok, some of them are mine :)) on this thread about love and gifts… what do you think?

Reminder for Valentine's Day: Gift-giving is not a love language any more than Pig Latin is a Romance language.

Extremely interesting take on comments on blogs. Engagement and interaction being key according to many online media experts -- how do you stay engaged with your audience and build community without comments allowed on your blog? (the answer is in the article.) :)
