I Love Cherry Blossoms

Just wanted to take today to express my undying love for Cherry Blossoms. 


How unbelievably magnificent they are.


Pink pedals blossoming and beautiful. 


G-d’s creations in nature that make us in awe of his majesty. 


It is almost too gorgeous to be real. 


To look up at these is more beautiful than I can possibly have words for. 


Thank you G-d for giving these to us every Spring season.


It is truly something to look forward to each year and that which nourishes our souls with a complete array of sensory joy. 😉

VICE News Superior

So I have started watching VICE News and you should too. 


It is on HBO and is superior to the other big news outlets in so many ways. 


The intensity and clarity of their photography and videos is unbelievable!


My daughter said to me:

“This is clearer than REAL life!”


And she was right…I don’t know how they do it. 

Also, they remove all the clutter from the news screen that CNN, MSNBC, and others use at the top and bottom of the screen–instead it’s just clean, focused, and right to the news point. 


VICE puts the key messages in callouts right on the screen in large and easy to read boxes–the impact is you see the visual and the print message dramatically together and you get it and remember it!


They do this for their photos and videos.

Finally, with all the “talk is cheap” news these days, it is nice that VICE seems to focus more on reporting and less on subjective opinion. 


With all the failing, fake, and alternative news out there, it is nice to see that someone has invented a better news program.  😉
