K, I watch Josh twitter day and night. Letting people know that now he is buying new shoes or boarding a plane or eating sushi. I think, “so, what, who cares besides his mom who always loves to know what her kids are up to?” Surprise, surprise. There are 1800 plus people who hang on every word he tweets and I can assure it isn’t rocket science that he’s writing about.
I mean, I truly want to know what’s in it for me to follow, be followed and post pithy clips of my brilliant daily life? So I’ve been reading and following some conversations that are interesting- mainly belonging to friends of Josh’s. He posted that I was “talking to myself” and encouraged a few friends to connect. Some did. Thanks, Josh. Haven’t yet figured out how to have a conversation but will do that.
But I have looked around and found some very interesting blogs and a great recipe for Sweet Potato Soup from the FeelGoodGuru! Check out her woowoo site. Silly me, I just blithely commented on the site that I’d be making this soup tonight- except I have yams not sweet potatoes and I’m going to use them instead.
So, here is what I did: my adaptation of the recipe (which came out very nicely)- organic yams, 1/4 tsp salt while veggies sauteeing, and 2 tablespoons white miso blended in at the end. Tastes awesome. I added the miso and more salt because it’s the winter and I wanted to balance the cooling nature of the coconut and lime. Love the lime and ginger and coconut milk combo, very nourishing and fulfilling feeling. If someone didn’t have coconut milk I think it would be great with almond or soy milk, too. What do you think? Thanks, Moira!

Leave it to Josh to know a very way cool way to share files via his friend’s site: drop.io . So now, I can use this site to upload information for business or for friends and drop.io provides a place for retrieval for private viewing or you can even publish drops on your facebook page.
“Each drop is:
A private place for exchanging photos, video, audio, notes, docs, and more. Each is accessible only to those whom you tell exactly where to look.
No signup and no account. We don’t even ask for your email. Create as many drops as you want.”
Now no excuses for sharing music and photo’s from Thanksgiving, Micah!

A French blog,fubiz, just highlighted a stop-motion video by Micah! Some of the comments include what I suppose must be slang like cool and terrific- but read like: “epatant” and “bof”….He created the video “Stop-Motion Day in the Life of a Born Digital Human” for Josh’s presentation to an advertising forum on how people are “hyper-connected” today. You can view it here. And fyi fubiz music broadcasts interesting sounds.
Congrats and thanks to Micah.
