Walking With Lions

Posted: November 23, 2013 in Uncategorized

Ron Scubadiver's Wild Life

Walking with lions was a great experience.  I was high after it was over.  The lions are accustomed to being with humans.  Their trainer keeps them focused on a chunk of meat on the end of a long pointed stick while they are waiting to be touched.  The speed at which the lions can grab that tidbit of food is astonishing.  These are truly wondrous creatures.  What also struck me was how much affection these two lions had for each other.  They were not fully grown.  The male massed 150 kg and is expected to reach 260 kg.  Later that day I drove back to Capetown, and began my long trip back to the USA the next afternoon.

About a week after I began using my iPhone, I was in love. I had a calendar with me at all times, and I was able to stay on top of my family’s schedule – even though there are six of us! I had email access while I was out, so I wasn’t constantly playing catch up with PTO business in the evening. Then I discovered apps! There are many apps to help busy moms manage their lives, but there are also just as many exclusively for kids. My children can watch videos, interact with their favorite characters, and practice letter-writing and math. No matter where my family goes, they can be entertained and I can have peace of mind knowing they’re learning even while they’re having fun. kid with iphone The iPhone Mom, dedicated to helping moms find apps that could do the same for them and their children. Since beginning the site, I’ve seen both the quantity and quality of useful apps for kids grow. Babble.com asked me to put together a list of my Top 50 iPhone Apps for Kids. Here, in descending order, are my favorites and the ones I think you’ll find most useful. –Heather Leister

Good one. Simple and clear

The online influencer

Co-authored by Jonathan Houston

According to www.dailybloggr.com, if you want to trend on Twitter, all you need is around 100 people tweeting the same hashtag simultaneously. Sounds simple but this may not be that easy to pull off. It’s about the volume of your audience rather than the volume of your tweets.

So here is how you should set about doing this. The process rules are simple enough so that you can take this process and copy it for your own events:

1. Get the right speaker

Just one high-profile speaker can help ensure that you have a successful event. This brings into sharp focus the importance of having an accomplished speaker to deliver your message. Do not misconstrue this advice to mean that you need to source your speaker internally – your organisation can find industry thought leaders who do not form part of your salaried staff.

Excellent post. Must read

The online influencer

As a B2B company you probably already have a basic LinkedIn Company Page with a company overview and list of employees. What you’re probably not doing though is making use of the Products and Services section to market your offerings. And yet this is the most important part of a LinkedIn Company Page.

1. List Your Products and Services

The first thing you need to do is fire up your products and services page. Until recently, you could only add products, but now you can list services too it’s ideal for the professional and financial services industry.

2. Add each of your services and an image for each one too.

3. Get Recommendations

The most powerful part of LinkedIn’s company page is the recommendations. In LinkedIn, people can’t recommend or review companies – only products and services. When a…

Tangled – “I’ve Got A Dream”

Song Title: I’ve Got A Dream | Artist/Band: Tangled

I’m malicious, mean and scary
My sneer could curdle dairy
And violence-wise, my hands are not the cleanest

But despite my evil look
And my temper and my hook
I’ve always yearned to be a concert pianist

Can’t you see me on the stage performin’ Mozart
Ticklin’ the ivories ’til they gleam?

Yep, I’d rather be called deadly
For my killer show tune medley
Thank you, ’cause way down deep inside I’ve got a dream

He’s got a dream
He’s got a dream
See, I ain’t as cruel and vicious as I seem

Though I do like breaking femurs
You can count me with the dreamers
Like everybody else, I’ve got a dream

I’ve got scars and lumps and bruises
Plus something here that oozes
And let’s not even mention my complexion

But despite my extra toes
And my goiter and my nose
I really wanna make a love connection

Can’t you see me with a special little lady
Rowin’ in a rowboat down the stream?

Though I’m one disgusting blighter
I’m a lover, not a fighter
‘Cause way down deep inside, I’ve got a dream

I’ve got a dream
(He’s got a dream)
I’ve got a dream
(He’s got a dream)
And I know one day romance will reign supreme

Though my face leaves people screaming
There’s a child behind it, dreaming
Like everybody else, I’ve got a dream

Tor would like to quit and be a florist
Gunther does interior design
Ulf is into mime, Attila’s cupcakes are sublime
Bruiser knits, killer sews, Fang does little puppet shows
And Vladimir collects ceramic unicorns

I have dreams like you, no, really
Just much less touchy-feely
They mainly happen somewhere warm and sunny

On an island that I own
Tanned and rested and alone
Surrounded by enormous piles of money

I’ve got a dream
(She’s got a dream)
I’ve got a dream
(She’s got a dream)
I just wanna see the floating lanterns gleam
Yeah

And with every passing hour
I’m so glad I left my tower
Like all you lovely folks, I’ve got a dream

She’s got a dream
He’s got a dream
They’ve got a dream
We’ve got a dream
So our differences ain’t really that extreme
We’re one big team

Call us brutal
Sick
Sadistic
And grotesquely optimistic
‘Cause way down deep inside, we’ve got a dream

I’ve got a dream
I’ve got a dream
I’ve got a dream
I’ve got a dream
I’ve got a dream
I’ve got a dream

Yes, way down deep inside, I’ve got a dream
Yeah
