Totally awesome

Its fun to occasionally talk about something that has nothing to do with technology.

Take this video for example. I started noticing it appear on the Discovery channels a some time back. And I absolutely love it to bits!!

Its got a great catchy tune, simple but lovely lyrics, and boy, what a concept and message.

World, I love you -- you're totally awesome!!

Thank you Discovery and all you wonderful hosts of Discovery shows, who participated in this 'music video' :)

Fittingly, this video was also played right before the screening of Wall-e. If you've seen this sweet and touching movie, you can see the video placement was just apt.

I found in YouTube yet another rendition by Mike Rowe and other DC hosts ... just as wonderful! :)

OK, OK, so its Discovery Channel's 2008 advertisement. Even so, its one advertisement I'd gladly have it sitting in my mind, going Boom De Ya Dah!!!

People are gonna start wondering if all I'd ever do is to sit in front of my Mac waiting for your next post...

"Comon', there's gazillion of information out there waitin to be explored!"

Correct, and I'm letting you do the exploring and me being spoon fed.

Ok, ok, must give and take.

"One Minute Manager". Great book. If you don't have it, buy it.
If you have bought it, read it.
If you have read it, read it again.
If you have read it 10 times, practice it.
If you have practiced it, live it.
If you have lived it, teach it.
If you have taught it, grow it.
If you have grown it, nurture it.
Once you have nurtured it, let it go.

I love that too! I'm an avid viewer of Discovery channel. It puts a big smile on my face every time the clip comes on. Great indeed!
