I checked with Ralph and he said that because of the music he used at the end, he is restricted from making the video available on mobile devices. And you’re not the only one who is bothered — he said his friends at school were complaining about it to him. : )

He also said he’ll be sure to pick music that is allowable on mobile devices for future episodes. And for a workaround, he recommended trying the app called YouTube Downloader. He said he uses it to download and youtube videos he likes directly to his ipad, and then he can watch them there.

I hope that helps!

Thanks for sharing all these cool stuff :)

“The content owner has not made this video available on mobile”
Which means it won’t play on iPad.

(not a zombies fan, just love to see the work of young creatives) What a talented young man. And I thought his blackberries short was exquisite . What a sensitive and joyful treatment of an everyday snippet of life – hard to wrap my head around the fact that it was created by a 16 year old!!

I can’t tell you how many wonderful products I’ve tried, small companies I now purchase regularly from, and articles I’ve shared with friends and family because you’ve share them with me. LOVE the Post Cartens and ordered some for little spring gifts, which I cannot wait to send!
When my kids were in elementary school, they’d enter their classrooms on St. Patty’s Day to find some naughty leprechauns had upended furniture, haphazardly rearranged the supplies and left a trail of gold coins–chocolate, of course! Such fun!

http://www.ilovetypography.com
http://www.obeygiant.com
http://www.cutestpaw.com

They all show up normal on my iPad. I sent you a screenshot of what comes up on my ipad. I sent it to gabrielle@designmom.com
Also, I’d just like to reserve the right that I can sometimes be pretty dense about this stuff and this could all be totally my fault!! ??

I always feel so helpless about this sort of thing. I’ll let my tech team know and see if they can recommend a fix. If it’s happening for you with any other wordpress blogs, I’d love to hear!

I am in the same place. Swearing off sugar — after I finish this bag of gummi bears. Sorry for the mixed messages!

Ben Blair and I have been discussing how we can realistically do less sugar with the kids. We’re considering trying no sugar on most days, but then allowing a sugar day once or twice a month to accomodate birthdays and holidays. It’s tricky to change traditions. I certainly don’t pretend we have any tried and true solutions. : )

Def seems to be an issue with the latest update.

I hope you have a great weekend. Just wanted to let you know that I can’t see Design Mom on my iPad anymore. I don’t know if it has to do with the new iOS, but now when I look at DM on my iPad it just shows all the pictures basically stacked on top of each other with the text all garbled up. I have no idea if that’s just my experience, but I thought I’d make you aware of it in case it can be fixed or something. BTW, I’m running iOS 6.1.2! Anyway, I’ll just keep looking on my desktop until it works again! :)

It struck me that all but 2 of the ideas involved serving sugary treats. I guess St. Patrick’s Day is a bust without sugar. Just pointing out the conflicting messages here.

And full disclosure, I’m a hypocrite. I read the sugar article while eating ice cream. Do I get any credit back for (half-heartedly) swearing to never eat it again while I was reading?

I feel so much more empowered (and may be a titch smarter, too)! You are awesome!
