Hello, Friends. How are you? Are you ready for the weekend? Any fun plans? (Quick reminder: Memorial Day is meant to honor women and men in uniform who died in service to our country. Veterans Day, which happens in November, is for ALL who have served.)
We’ve got good stuff happening. There’s a grave dedication on Saturday for the first Black Mormons in Oakland. We have friends and family coming to stay — they don’t want to miss the Temple Open House. And on Monday, Oscar will don his Scout uniform and play his trumpet on the U.S.S Pampanito — a retired military submarine, docked at a San Francisco pier, that the public can tour.
I want to tell you, I really appreciate all the encouragement, on my earlier post this week, to apply for a TED talk. Applications are due next week and I’m working on my video. Woot! There’s also a link where you can nominate someone — so if you’re in the mood to nominate me, I would certainly be grateful for the support. The nomination form asks for a bunch of info, I’ve included everything you need in the P.S. below. : )
Ready to jump into weekend links? Here are a few things I’ve wanted to share:Thirteen links! Really good stuff.
