After each Baptism we have pictures taken of our boys in their “dress” clothes. We also have one taken in a Ferrari driving suit given to me by some great friends when our first, Nick, was born. The Formula 1 fan in me loves these photos. Ferrari flag is from a factory visit to Maranello.
I’ve never been big on talent competition shows like ‘American Idol’ etc., but when I saw my wife watching this clip of Susan Boyle on ‘Britain’s Got Talent’ I couldn’t help but pass it along. Never judge a book by its cover. Great way to give your morning a lift with an inspiring video.
Update: It has been quite a week for Ms. Boyle and more proof of how powerful New & Social Media are.
Here is our James Beard Award nominated video:
The Art of Blending.
In addition, we have also been selected as a finalist for an award in the Audio Webcast or Radio Show category.
Here is our James Beard Award nominated audio show: Thomas Jefferson and Wine.
The James Beard Foundation Awards are the nation’s preeminent honors for culinary professionals. More than 60 awards are given out each year in the categories of cookbooks, restaurants, chefs, design, graphics, broadcast media, journalism, and achievement. Nominees and award winners are selected by their industry peers, with more than 600 culinary professionals involved in the voting process.
We were honored to have won in 2008 with our video Stewards of the Land.
Thank you to all of our fans who have given us such great support over the years.
Doing some research on AdWords and found this video. Thought it was a good basic explanation.
Brian Clark, a great friend and partner in GrapeRadio.com was involved in a horrible car accident in Central California last Friday. He is currently in the ICU and has received in excess of 13 units of blood and platelets.
Along with myself, Brian is also a member of the Orange County Sheriff’s Search and Rescue Team. He is the kind of guy who is always there, ready to help others in their time of need. As a member of our team he responds to calls at all hours of the day and night to help people he has never even met. I hope that we can return the favor.
When asking, “What can we do to help,” the only thing that his wife has requested was for us to give blood. A blood drive has been planned for Wednesday, March 18, from noon to 6pm. For local folks the information is below. Due to limited time slots it is important to have everyone make an appointment on line.
If the 18th will not work or you are out of the area, please contact your local American Red Cross or http://www.givelife.org where you can also donate. If you participate, please email me and let me know or post a comment below. It will be great to tell Brian how many people donated blood on his behalf.
We always hear about the “podcast community”, I would like to show the power of our network.
How you can help:
- Donate (Wherever you can)
- Link to this post. Tweet and Re-Tweet about it, Facebook, whatever your platform may be.
While flowers are nice, blood may save the life of a loved one.
Any help towards this cause is greatly appreciated.
Please keep Brian and his family in your prayers.
Thank you in advance!
Michael W. Geoghegan
Note: Blood Drives aren’t so much about donating for a particular person as much as donating in the name of a person to help support a critical system in saving lives. So donate wherever you can and let us know so we can add it to the tally.
