A Few Of My Favorite Things



I love the lectures from The Teaching Company. They are fascinating, enlightening and tons of fun.

I love the music of Jack Johnson. I've mentioned him here before, but he's still cool and groovy, so I'm mentioning him again.

I love coffee from CoffeeFool.com. My latest shipment arrived yesterday, and when I opened the box, it smelled like happiness. I had a cup of Ethiopian Harrar this morning, and it was as rich, wild and nutty as they said it would be. Wonderful, wonderful stuff. I'd drink some of it right now, except 1) I'm at work, the coffee is at home and 2) I have way too much caffeine in my system already.

I love Lulu.com. The ability to quickly and easily publish a professional looking book is so empowering and encouraging. Sure, they publish a lot of really crummy stuff... but they also publish some really beautiful stuff too. Walt Whitman published Leaves of Grass himself, and lots of other authors went the self-publishing route. Imagine how many masterpieces have been lost to history because the authors didn't have a Lulu.com...

Of course, I really can't use the phrase "I love" without mentioning my wife and kids. They make me laugh every day and mean everything to me. I'm such a lucky guy.

Cute picture. I think "They make me laugh every day," is the most important part. Gotta go laugh now . . .

Jack Johnson continuously amazes me with his music. I feel super grooooovy each time I listen to him.

And the girls, well, they're surely on top of my "things that I love to pieces" list! Love the picture!

Thanks! They got the glasses at a birthday party, and Jenna in particular has taken to carrying them around and wearing them frequently. Too funny!
