Ok. This year, I'm DEFINITELY going to look more seriously at hang-gliding. How dangerous can it be?


Whoo! The Soft Launch was a HOME RUN! Couldn't have gone any smoother. Wonderful turnout and a classy presentation all around. Congratulations, Simply Smart Kids!


Still working on finishing up the Simply Smart START! video series. There's a "soft launch" scheduled soon and I need to be ready for it. Putting together a killer-diller presentation DVD.


Finishing up work on both video and my writing projects. Not much to report, other than I'm up to my armpits in alligators.


Completed work on 3 of 5 videos (Final Cut Pro editing) for Simply Smart. These things are monsters. Good thing I can keep everything "in-house." There are several graphics changes that would simply derail someone who only knows editing.


Hard at work designing, writing and teaching. I really should get out more, I know. But I just love what I do. It's truly amazing how fortunate I am to lose track of time doing something that totally engulfs you, until you suddenly look at the clock and go, "Holy Moly! It's 4 AM???" :-)
