Yo! Yo! Ma!

I hope that everyone is enjoying their Thursday afternoon, mine thus far has been F A N T A S T I C! I've had 4 cups of coffee today, so Let's Get This On!

Some of our members and I have come up with the two TED Talk videos for next month's Second Sunday.

1. Brian Greene: Is our universe the only universe?

2. Bunker Roy: Learning from a barefoot movement.

These two videos could not be more opposite. One is highly controversial, meaning that in our meeting, we may broach the subject of "Is there a God"? At least, if one of our members were there, I know he would. So, which one of you TShakes is the Astrophysicist? Would whoever in this field of expertise kindly email me back, we would love to hear your insight on this matter at the meeting before we tear into the meat of it. The second video inspires action and perpetuates hope in humanity. All great topics for us to peruse over while we have our beverages.  

Now, I'm elated that you all are responding to my posts in the discussions page, and it's not all just me talking and typing to myself.  I do that a lot already, so to actually have people respond - puts me in my happy place.  After meeting some of you TShakes, I know ya'll aren't shy, so PLEASE feel free to post your own discussions, thoughts, and ideas for all of us to see and comment on.

Finally, the TEDxHouston conference is right around the corner. The 2012 theme is "Resonate" and the conference starts November 3.  I would highly suggest that you all visit the TEDxHouston 2012 site and apply to attend or volunteer.  The TEDx conference should be solid, it has after all spawned the Houston Shakers.

Thank you all for reading my ramblings...I'm finished for this hour.
