I'm taking part of Feel The Hunger day today. I'm voluntarily eating only 1/2 cup of rice today, to get a feel for what it would be like to live undernourished.

Check out the website here: Feel the Hunger

You can also read an article in the Daily Bee where I was interviewed, here.

And here's a photo I took on the streets of Kampala. These two boys stopped me as I was walking and asked to have their picture taken. You can click on the photo to see other Uganda photos in my Flickr stream.

Streamline Your Business and Personal Life

As of Monday, there is a new application available via the GoogleApps marketplace. It was developed by Viewpath and is an incredible tool for organizing and managing any type of project - from enterprise level technical and industrial projects, to planning the next family camping trip.

I am currently using this software to plan the Wings Over Sandpoint fly-in for the airport. It's really a great tool to organize what needs to happen and who's responsible for each item.

Check it out at viepath3.appspot.com. You can simply sign in with your Google account. And please feel free to leave some feedback for this great application.

If you have questions about how it works or how to use it, please feel free to comment here on my blog and I'll help you out.

Raffle Ticket, Anyone?

Paddy bought a donkey from a farmer for £100.

The farmer agreed to deliver the donkey the next day.

The next day he drove up and said, 'Sorry son, but I have some bad news. The donkey's died.'

Paddy replied, 'Well then just give me my money back.'

The farmer said, 'Can't do that. I've already spent it.'

Paddy said, 'OK, then, just bring me the dead donkey.'

The farmer asked, 'What are you going to do with him?'

Paddy said, 'I'm going to raffle him off.'

The farmer said, 'You can't raffle a dead donkey!'

Paddy said, 'Sure I can. Watch me. I just won't tell anybody he's dead.'

A month later, the farmer met up with Paddy and asked, 'What happened with that dead donkey?'

Paddy said, 'I raffled him off. I sold 500 tickets at two pounds apiece and made a profit of £898'

The farmer said, 'Didn't anyone complain?'

Paddy said, 'Just the guy who won. So I gave him his two pounds back.'

Bettter Off Drunk or Stoned Than Texting While Driving

It turns out that texting while driving is the new most-dangerous activity to indulge in behind the wheel. Read about it here.

Last week, I got the opportunity to work with Charles Manning of Playxpert and Melissa Burns of Mobility PR to create a video demo for a new smart phone app to help curtail texting while driving, called TextArrest . The app is being showcased this week at CTIA in Las Vegas.

I'm a huge fan of this app because it is highly customizable (like, really impressive), is very simple to use, and is designed to encourage accountability and conversation within a family.

Here's an article about TextArrest.
