We had another successful Polar Bear Plunge! I want to thank everyone who sponsored me by donating to this great cause.
The lake was frozen solid this year. Last year it didn’t get cold enough for the lake shore to freeze and the waves were a problem so we welcome a frozen shoreline. I took the GoPro along this time and got some great video.
Thank you again for your support!
I found a video of my son going down the slide at a local elementary school from this past summer and I loved the way he slides down on his belly, looks back at me then climbs back up the slide.

Do you have an iPhone or iPod? Do you hand out business cards on a regular basis? If you answered yes to both of those questions, then you have to get Card Now by Halskov Apps. Card Now is an iPhone and iPod app that lets you perform an amazing and memorable business card production. Imagine showing your iPhone and “printing” your business card across the screen with the touch of a button, then sliding the card out of the phone to give to the spectator. Take a look at the video for a demonstration.
The trick is incredibly easy to learn and do and is a must for anyone who hands out business cards, regardless of whether or not you’re a magician. At $2.99, it’s definitely worth the price for the reactions it receives. It’s a great way to ensure that your business card won’t be forgotten.
Here is a picture I made for my Springfield, Ohio: A Glimpse of the Past collection using the photograph entitled, “Police Parade on W High” from the Harry C. Laybourne collection (special thanks to Roger Mossbarger for letting me take some photos from his personal collection).
It’s interesting to see the cars along the side of the road and the business signs in the historic picture since this area is somewhat bare now. The first building to the right is the Tecumseh Building, which as been vacant since the mid 1980′s. I would love to see this building turned into something, or at least explore it before it gets demolished (praying that doesn’t happen).
