TEDxPeachtree, Washington DC, cancer, shade, shop small business, school board, Elf, Field Trips, Sprawl - Fringe Suburb, Taste of Dunwoody
A few weeks ago I had the pleasure to attend a locally organized TED Conference, the day’s speakers shared their “Breakthrough” in their respective areas of expertise in 18-minute talks. This link shows all of the presentations and I have highlighted a few of the one's I really enjoyed below.
The Transformative Power of Multimedia Storytelling
Perceptions are Reality. Or Are They? An Immigrant's Journey.
Autism: Disruptions in Early Human Social Adaptation Mechanisms
Education & Disruptive Innovation
For Thanksgiving break, my family spent four nights in Washington D.C. and it was an absolutely fabulous vacation that was highly educational for my boys. With my youngest son being six and the oldest being twelve there was something for everyone. We did the White House tour, Capital Tour, all the monuments, numerous museums, saw the Space Shuttle and money being made, saw famous art works, went ice skating and did lots of walking. Almost every historical site was free therefore I highly recommend it as a family vacation spot.
I know too many people with Cancer, but allow me to celebrate that my friend Bonnie is in this commercial.
