My Auto History

A friend bought a new car this week. Well, new to her. And, my “new” car is about 4 months old now. Made me think about the progression of cars in my life and I thought I would capture it here: First Car: 1969 Plymouth Satellite (with a huge dent in the trunk lid) – we could cram 8 folks in there and make it to the Rocky Horror Picture Show during college. Great fun. This car is the one that taught me the importance of paying attention to the Oil Level warning light. 1980 Plymouth Horizon – with awesome… Read More »My Auto History

My life in Pummelvision

Thanks to Alan Levine aka CogDog (who I get to meet next week at ITC eLearning 2011!), I have fallen for Pummelvision, which takes the last 2000 photos in our Flickr account (or DailyBooth Dropbox Facebook and Tumblr) and makes them into a movie that is then auto-magically (if you give it they keys) to YouTube or Vimeo. Sweet! As they say, your life flashes before your eyes and I see that I have been some places (or at least I only upload photos of places i have been). Give it a shot if you take shots.

Flowcharts for life choices

I love flowcharts! I always have loved them. I think that is why when I first saw a song chart, it just grabbed my attention like no other infographic had in a while! I just found these flowcharts from Eating the Road blog. They just might help with those life decisions like what cereal to eat or what fast food to choose or what is the truth? What other flowcharts are out there?
