Video shot at the 2012 Holi Festival of Colors celebration at Spanish Fork, Utah… one of many throughout the world. What a wonderful celebration of life, love and the God who is both.
Yesterday, Californians celebrated the 75th anniversary of the Golden Gate Bridge. When Americans work together they can build things like this, using public money for public good. Private equity didn’t build this. The people did.
The VW Hippie Van Toaster - Coolest thing I’ve seen this week. Only 5000 were made as a promotional item. Sadly, the only place to get one appears to be eBay (they were never offered as a retail item) where they are rare and bringing around $250.

When we talk about our grandparents and great grandparents who struggled through the Great Depression we speak of them admiringly, almost reverentially. They were strong, endowed with uncommon intestinal fortitude and were the model of resilience and resourcefulness that is the American ideal. They were cast into poverty, dispossessed and left in desperate conditions by the same forces which today have created widespread joblessness, driven hundreds of thousands from their homes through foreclosures and cast the country into its darkest economic days in seventy years. Isn’t it curious that, in contrast to our grandparents, today’s victims are constantly disparaged, often vilified, in our media and public conversation, labeled as slackards, bums, freeloaders and worse. It is different this time because the power of our overlords has grown so great that they now control not only our fortunes but, apparently, our minds.
