Stones for Nelson Mandela

Visiting Johannesburg earlier this year, we went to Nelson Mandela’s house – the one in which he resided when he died. Outside, there were makeshift memorials which are shown in this short video…

Puff the Magic Dragon – Live from The Egyptian April, 2014

Peter Yarrow, of Peter, Paul & Mary, performed for two nights at The Egyptian Theatre on Main Street in Park City, Utah. This folk singing legend entertained each night for nearly three hours. He’s almost 76 and his spirit is as infectious and joyful as ever. Each night he closed the first half by inviting members of the audience on stage to join him in singing “Puff the Magic Dragon.” Here’s a bird’s eye view as I went on stage on night two. He gave permission to video and post the event – after all, he wrote the song – but I still cut the video in no more than 14-15 second pieces so as not to get dinged by YouTube – hopefully, I succeeded!

What is the VALUE of College? – #DadChat

The Jonas Family

                                             The Jonas Family

College. Every parent thinks their kids should go to college. And, many want them to rush into it immediately after high school. Is college the right path for EVERY kid? Is college worth its cost these days? Did you know that the cost of tuition is BY FAR the highest inflationary item of them all – health care is a DISTANT second! We have a home-schooling family co-hosting #DadChat tonight. Jim and PJ Jonas are the parents of EIGHT kids – and Brett is the oldest and they will bring their thoughts to this edifying topic!

Life Contract

I had a conversation with a friend about getting older, quality of life, and how baby boomers are continuing to try and re-invent everything. Out of this conversation came a great “What If,” which I want to explore and ask YOU what you would do?

Peter Yarrow, 1/3 of Peter, Paul & Mary, has been a folk-singer and social activist for over a half-century. He did a solo concert on April 18, 2014 at The Egyptian Theatre in Park City, Utah. It was a wonderful mix of talk and song AND sing-a-long with him. Herewith is a recollection of performing at The White House in 1962 to then President John F. Kennedy, first-lady Jackie Kennedy, and other celebrities and notables…enjoy this story. I sure did!
