For a fun Sunday project, Adam Ladd asked his 5-year old daughter to identify brand logos.
This was the result:
How do you feel when someone is taking time out of their day for you, maybe sitting and eating lunch or enjoying a fresh cup of coffee, only to be interrupted by a text message or phone call?
Collectively, many people are taking an interesting and fun approach to this phenomenon of instant messages, instant replies and instant answers.
It’s called, a phone stack and this is how it works:
I’m sure you’ve seen the rumblings of MegaUpload being take down this month. Despite your perspective on the shake-down, it brings some serious questions and implications as we look at the long-term use of “The Cloud.”
Up until now, cloud storage was all butterflies and rainbows. I was left without any doubts.
Legitimate users of MegaUpload currently have no access to their files and are at risk of losing all of their data.
Did you know that WordPress can display posts you have scheduled?
How awesome is that!
This would not only be cool for a band website that lists upcoming shows or events, but it would be great for bloggers who plan out and schedule blog posts ahead of time. What a great hook for returning blog readers to subscribe to your feed or come back, so they don’t miss one of your upcoming awesome blog posts.
Here’s how to do it:
Every year for the past five years, my church has “given” my town a fireworks display for Independence Day. It’s a pretty huge deal, and we always have a great response with our attendance averaging in the thousands. All in all, the event does well, but that’s because we put a lot into it.

Musicians are a funny breed. All very similar yet entirely different. As a worship pastor, I am always trying duplicate and replicate the worship songs we lead while still maintaining our own unique voice. And this applies to vocalists, drummers, and guitarists.
I’m a self taught guitarist. I took a couple of lessons in Jr. High but I was more interested in playing rock songs instead of ‘Yankee Doodle Dandy!’ So I dropped out.
Music, for me, is a feeling and an emotion. I resonate with it and it moves me. There are times when I can sit down, listen to a song, and immediately start picking out each part. I can read music if I have to, but I’d rather just hear it and play it.
But not everyone is like that. Most folks need specific notes, tabs, or resources to learn their music. As the leader of a worship ministry, I am always trying to resources my band. And this costs money.
This isn’t a problem if you’ve got the extra cash to spend, but most of us are on tight budgets and this means we must get creative.
