Operation Halloween

We just finished our Halloween night events. Operation Halloween had over 30 people involved. It was held in Twinbrook, Aspen Hill, and Kensington. We went to Scary Perry and Aspen Hill Chipotle and handed out tons of candy bags.

We handed out almost 1000 bags of candy. The last number count on the website was 23,300 hits. It will be interesting to see how many hits we get after tonight.

I had so much fun. Then we went to a local club that we sponsored a Halloween event at.

Well, I have to crash…

How to Get Money From Your Old Gadgets

Whether you’re lusting for the new Google (GOOG: 362.88*, +3.05, +0.84%) phone or just looking for some extra cash, the solution may be in the several generations of gadgetry shoved in junk drawers and boxes in your home.

While that old Motorola (MOT: 5.34*, -0.12, -2.19%) RAZR and first-generation iPod may seem like worthless relics from another era, a bevy of new web sites and retailer programs want to convince you otherwise. These programs offer to buy all sorts of old electronics. They even accept items with no resale value and will recycle them for you.

Buying a House

Lori and I just received our counter offer on the house we have been looking for. As of 10 minutes ago I faxed off the ratified contract

Now we wait for the lender to approve which the listing agent said was not a problem. Once that is finished, we go through and check the house and inspect then the contract stands! We have just bought a house.

So, now we wait as life pans out and pray for God’s timing and for the finish.

Thought of the Week – 10-31-2008

Thought of the Week 10-31-2008

“Always in life an idea starts small, it is only a sapling idea, but the vines will come and they will try to choke your idea so it cannot grow and it will die and you will never know you had a big idea, an idea so big it could have grown thirty meters through the dark canopy of leaves and touched the face of the sky.”

-Bryce Courtenay

Fact of the Day:
In a ritual repeated nearly every weekend for the past decade here in Colombia’s war-weary Caribbean hinterland, Luis Soriano gathered his two donkeys, Alfa and Beto, in front of his home on a recent Saturday afternoon. Sweating already under the unforgiving sun, he strapped pouches with the word “Biblioburro” painted in blue letters to the donkeys’ backs and loaded them with an eclectic cargo of books destined for people living in the small villages beyond. A whimsical riff on the bookmobile, Mr. Soriano’s Biblioburro is a small institution: one man and two donkeys. He created it out of the simple belief that the act of taking books to people who do not have them can somehow improve this impoverished region, and perhaps Colombia. [ more ]

Be The Change:
Learn more about an innovative network of 19 libraries in Colombia that is helping make information more accessible in the country. [ more ]

You know, it is a small thing, but I love this idea. I think it’s time for us to do small things for one person at a time. We have too many people wondering how we can change our world, our economy, our nation, our government, our whatever!

Where are the people that simply wonder, “Hmmmm, how can I change my neighbor’s perspective?” I am all for changing people’s perspective. For seeing people smile. For helping one person at a time. And I believe that we all can make a world of difference to at least one person next to us every week!

I challenge us to!

Have a great weekend! And don’t forget to vote next week and change your clock on Sunday. BOTH ARE EQUALLY IMPORTANT! Hahahaha!

Solar power your home, for cheap!

Instead of selling solar panels to homeowners, SolarCity’s main business is leasing the panels. The consumer pays SolarCity a monthly lease payment – about $75 for a 2.8 kilowatt system – which, when combined with his newly-lowered electric bill, typically adds up to a savings of 10% to 15%.

As Lori and I look to purchase by January 2009, I am totally looking into solutions like this to save, go green and offer an opportunity to live a little more of what I believe!

Awesome!
