Young people have solutions

These little ones are defying expectations with stellar ideas.  Recently, there was the news of a 9 year-old in Singapore who’s fluent in six programming languages and created a successful iPhone application. 

Now meet 12-year-old Max Wallack who won a design contest by creating a yurt-like dome home with a built-in bed made of  plastic, wire, and packing peanuts.  The idea allows for cheap housing for the homeless, as well as addressing the problem of increasing landfills.

Gotta love innovation.

What My World Sounds Like: Ray LaMontagne

Oct
11

Make that old Ray LaMontagne, as I haven’t been doing much perusing around his recent catalog. I have the second studio album, but haven’t paid it much attention, choosing instead to stay with his 2004 Trouble. What a great album. A little folksy. Definitely some blues. Smothered in a smooth, rustic voice. Makes for happy ears.

Enjoy these two selections.
