Flash Mob Favorites

In teaching my mother what a flash mob is, I reviewed a variety of videos capturing the worldwide phenomenon of the flash mob.  For any of you who don't know what it is: "a group of people who assemble suddenly in a public place, perform an unusual and sometimes seemingly pointless act for a brief time, then disperse, often for the purposes of entertainment, satire, and/or artistic expression Flash mobs are organized via telecommunications, social media, or viral emails."

1.   Sound of Music: Antwerp Station, Belgium (yes, this is my mom's favorite too)

2. Liverpool Station (most favorite and an ad for T-Mobile)

3. Union Station freeze

4.  Swedish Bounce

5. Bondi Beach Dance (Haha!)

6.  Bristol Lightsaber Show (this could easily have been ranked higher but for video quality)

7.  Polish Finger-Gun War

8. Mumbai flash mob

Now that I've figured out screen capture... I can do amazing things like post the snail mail card that will be shortly sent out to those of you out there who have given me updated addresses! :)  What a blessing to reflect on a good year.  God is inspeakably still so good.  And how refreshing to remember His goodness with you all.  Joyful blessing indeed!

Gospel Tunes

--> because every once in a while you'd like a praise morning with some uplifting tunes... some of the Gospel hits I've enjoyed over the past year or so:


For my MSU college music mixers - here's the playlist to be sent out from me this month... (to my blog readers, yes this includes a few of the same from my September mix but that's because I haven't had time/budget to completely update the latest and greatest.)

Brought to you care of the iPad's great note taking apps and my personally imperfect handwriting on them :P:

Trampled By Turtles @ Blind Pig 11.8.11

It's a wonderful music world our good God has given us.  A few weeks past I was reveling in trumpets and tomorrow night it's fiddle and banjo time.  I love it all.

MSU quarterback Kirk Cousins

MSU has a great quarterback who is a strong believer and outspoken in his faith.

Here in his own words why football is not his identity (above).
More (below).
I agree with Kirk

Go GREEN! Go White!

10 years ago, Katie Loveland and I stood in the Spartan stadium cheering MSU to its first football victory over U of M in years.  We scored in an amazingly heroic catch with 0.0 seconds on the clock - which caused the stadium to erupt in the loudest applause I have ever heard (or been participant.)

This year we beat Wisconsin in a like manner "Hail of a Catch" (thank you student newspaper for your crafty word plays.)  This same weekend we had a STARR reunion for various alumni of the full-ride undergraduate scholarship that brought all of us Wyomingites out to MSU.  Since one of the current seniors was in the homecoming court, the anonymous donors flew in for the occasion.  Since they still wish to keep their anonymity, after having given billions to the university to pay annually for 24 out-of-staters, they will not be posted in my photos - but here are some shots of the evening part of the events.

note the centerpiece Jock in the Boxthat's now in my living room :P)

Senior Moments #2

Me: "Can you tell me where you are?"
Pt with dementia: "Well, I'm right here!"
Me: "Where is here?"
Pt: "Here."
Me: Oookay. ...questions later...  "Can you tell me who the President is?"
Pt: "Oh, I don't know that.  But YOU should be the President.  I like you."

Oh how sweet my forgetful friends are. :)
